Today we’d like to introduce you to Meghan Tatiana Paul.
So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I am a 27 years old mother, veteran, and business owner. I am from the north suburbs of Chicago. In the midst of attending college, I ran out of financial aid to continue classes. I didn’t want to take out loans so I ended up dropping out. I decided to join the navy in order to obtain money to go back to school for free. After being deployed for 9.5 months to the Middle East working 12-16 hours a day 6.5 days a week, I knew then that I wanted to be my own boss. The quality of life while serving was not one that I saw for myself. I wanted something of my own and wanted to do something that made me so happy that it didn’t feel like work. Something that directly involves making an impact on people for the better.
After being forced retired out the navy I jumped into getting my esthetician license the same month! I’ve always wanted to go into skincare and making my own so this was the perfect opportunity! Like life tends to happen my partner and I found out we were expecting a baby girl! This fueled my drive to stick to getting my license. Just a month and a half before my beautiful daughter made her debut, I received my license! After getting my license, I wasn’t too sure of the direction in which to start my business. There were a few bumps along the way but what a blessing it is to have had the opportunities I’ve had with people I thought I wouldn’t be in rooms with yet service! I like to share my story that being a college drop out and a disabled veteran doesn’t mean you can’t go after your dreams!
Has it been a smooth road?
There have been struggles along the way but all things are seen as lessons from the universe for me. All of the lessons I’ve learned have made me into businesswoman I am today.
So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the Tatiana’s Boutiqueee LLC story. Tell us more about the business.
Tatiana’s Boutiqueee LLC is a space where all are welcomed! It is a space to get pampered yet educated. For many, I am their first experience with getting a facial. I dedicate a lot of time to my clients and to ensure that they feel comfortable and knowledgeable of what is going on with their skin. It is vital that clients understand what is being done and how it helps them. It also helps with their home regimen. If clients don’t understand why to use or do certain things then they are likely not to do it. Knowledge is key! At Tatiana’s Boutiqueee LLC there a numerous of services provided. Facials, waxing, and lashes. I specialize in facials. What sets me apart is the spiritual aspect of my facials cleansing the skin and the spirit. Energy plays a lot into skin. I believe that the mind-body and soul play a big part in skincare. Just like when there is something going on internally the skin shows us. When something is bothering your spirit, your aura it tells us this as well. I am proud to provide a safe and open space for others. To be able to change how someone may view themselves. To make someone feel beautiful or handsome in their own skin!
How do you think the industry will change over the next decade?
I see the industry becoming more mobile and personalized. As this pandemic has shown us things can change at a moment’s notice. And not being able to control when you can service clients may not be what people would like to experience again. Our lives have changed during this time and have made many of us change how we do business and how we offer services to our clients.
