So excited to finally be here!
Launching my own business is something I have been thinking/talking about for years, but letting go of my 'safe' corporate career that spans over two decades, was a security blanket that created a bigger mental hurtle then I realized. Moving towards a career that I was genuinely passionate about, incorporating themes like good health, self care, promoting positivity, promoting/supporting women in some way and incorporating my culture in some way, were all themes of interest, but how that wrapped up into a business was a haunting question mark, that I ruminated on constantly, especially on tough days in my corporate job, when re-occurring clear signs that I was a square peg in a round hole surfaced.
In August 2019 after my third trip to Ghana is when I started making Sheadence for no other reason then I loved it! Being an entire family of eczema sufferers too, was another motivator. I had been doing this for awhile, and it was my hubby who kept telling me for months, why not do something like this?? (Typically after a grueling day at work). I think between him, the pandemic environment which really had me questioning how I was spending my days and what career I wanted to see myself retiring from in the future, what was obvious to him, finally became obvious to me.
These last few weeks have lead me to learning new skills I never had before, meeting great people that I can model as I navigate this new world, expansion of my own knowledge as it relates to my culture and these two great ingredients Shea & Kokum, and the birth of Sheadence. I have tapped into my creativity like never before, and get the privilege to use it regularly!
Sheadence will continue to be a platform for new pieces of art for body self care!
I look forward to building relationships with new clients and leveraging their input to help me continue to evolve Sheadence in a way that continues to make people 'feel good' on the inside and out!!
Thank you for your support!
