Today we’d like to introduce you to Jessica Chambliss.
Hi Jessica, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
I started making natural products about ten years ago. I had my hair braided by a girl who made her own products and I was so impressed by that! The products were designed for my hair type…no chemicals…simple and effective. Shortly after that experience, I started experimenting with natural ingredients and curtailing the recipe for a more specific outcome. I wanted something that nourished dyed hair, thinning hair, sun-bleached hair. I quickly learned that I can make whatever I want from scratch with just a little research. At the helm of the pandemic, my partner introduced me to sea moss. We started blending the moss with alkaline water in order to build our immune systems. We did more research and learned that sea moss not only has internal benefits but the external benefits were just as amazing! Sea moss can help thinning hair grow. It can tighten aging skin. It can soothe irritated skin! Like… limitless possibilities!! After I was fired from my job, post covid, I totally immersed myself into creating more products and perfecting the recipes. We’ve made significant progress after only being in business for 16 short months! We’ve sold over 3000 products in counting! Our customer base is growing exponentially. We’re featured in several markets all over the state and we only plan on growing!
Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
The road has been smooth…it’s been rocky… any business owner will tell you that the tide varies from month to month. I coast through my obstacles by remaining positive. I also really and truly feel grateful for this entire journey! I work for myself!
I’ve been working for other people since I was 13 so this level of freedom is beyond fulfilling. I’m learning as I go and that can be challenging but I remain open… I tap into my resources and I have an incredible support system. My partner makes this entire ride less rocky… more graceful… and more exciting!
Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I make holistic products from scratch in my kitchen!!!
I specialize in infusing sea moss into skin and hair care.
I’m known for my excellent products but for also taking really good care of my clients. I love them!!!
I’m most proud of having the audacity to start this business and the work ethic to make it pop! So so so proud!
Before we let you go, we’ve got to ask if you have any advice for those who are just starting out?
My advice to those starting is to make lists!!! Writing down your daily goals empowers you and holds you accountable.
Keep positive and encouraging company around you!
And get your personal credit together!
Good credit makes your world go round! It will be far easier to build business credit if your personal credit is in a juicy spot.
