We had the good fortune of connecting with Toya J and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Toya, do you have any habits that you feel contribute to your effectiveness?
Discipline! It took months for me to learn disciple. I would also start a task but never finish it. My business was the first thing I’ve dedicated so much time and effort to daily.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
I am the owner of Chelli hair care. Which stands for captivating hydrating enriching lavish luxurious hair. I just wanted to adjust a crown that most feel insecure about, I want everyone to feel good about caring for their natural hair state. This business was not easy to start but I am joying the obstacles that I’m overcoming and the tears That I’ve shed over the time. It’s a never ending learning process but I apply all my resources and tools that I have available to me. Caring for my hair has always been a passion for me since I was a little girl. In Middle school I would always use my kitchen to mix up hot and protein treatment to grow my hair. We will be in aisles near you.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I am a food connoisseur. All my friends know that i love to eat l, so I will be some where eating at some of the hottest restaurants. Just to name a few off of my list Papi steak house, shooters water front, Victory, & most of the food spots in Wynwood.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would like to thank my friends and family for all of the moral support that have offer me in the time of need and kept pushing me. When I was ready to wave my white flag around in the air. I would like to give a special thank you to my son. He is the daily reminder of why I should never give up on myself or my dreams.
