The brand is Rosemond’s entrepreneurial foray into a global multi-billion dollar industry.

“While everyone else is enjoying their weekends, I am on the ground doing research on my competitors and staying up on the latest trends. I pay attention to what the major brands are doing and how they are positioning their products. This research gives me incredible insight that I can use to stay current, relevant and competitive. This information also helps me create unique experience for my customers,” she shared.
Rosemond offers these tips for prospective entrepreneurs:
Don’t Make Excuses: “I learned a long time ago that excuses are tools of incompetence. A lot of us get stuck and get in the way of GOD’s blessings because of fear and the excuses we tell ourselves. Stop the excuses and start executing the necessary steps to create your vision.”
Done is better than perfect: “I started with two lip lacquers on Shopify. As a perfectionist I wanted the thousand dollar e-commerce site with all the bells and whistles. I’ve learned that you must make the most out of the resources that are at your disposal and build from there. You will never know how the marketplace will respond to your product if you never launch it. Once you get responses from the marketplace, you can begin to make adjustments to ensure continued growth and success.”
Secure a Mentor: “Nobody knows everything. We cannot achieve success alone. You must develop a team that can help you accomplish your goals. A mentor can be a valuable player of your dream team. Keep them engaged and your company will benefit from their expertise, guidance, and experience.”
Rosemond is seeking to manage her company’s growth and eventually compete with the top players in the industry.
