Meet Jileen West

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jileen West.

Hi Jileen, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
I’m freshly new into the entrepreneurial community, and so far my journey just started. Just by trying something new, something that I’ve been putting off because I didn’t feel experienced with it.

After the first time, I just took off! started building my brand and wanting to get out there and gain more clientele. It is still very challenging but this journey is very knowledgeable. I’m learning from scratch and I’ve had a lot of support along the way.

Just by trying and not even knowing I’ve started a potential six-figure business all I have left to do now is continue to work on my craft and gain access to more knowledge.

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?
Definitely! As of right now since I’m fairly new marketing is the biggest challenge for me. When, who, and how are my biggest questions when I’m trying to market my business.

Knowing the right time is crucial and takes a bit to pick up on. Who I’m marketing to is the easiest, but how is more challenging than it all. Should it be a reel or a Facebook ad or a flyer, should I do a sale! So many questions and so many answers but it all just takes time.

Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
I am a certified natural hair specialist. I specialize in braids, twists, and natural locs. Soon I will be specializing in more services!

The crisis has affected us all in different ways. How has it affected you and any important lessons or epiphanies you can share with us?
Life is hard and so do something you enjoy instead of dread. Hustle but don’t lose yourself. Remember to take breaks if needed burn out is real! Practice practice practice because everything takes time.
