Beauty and the Business Memphis, presented by Phillip Ashley Chocolates, (let me pause just a moment and day dream about how delicious their chocolates are. yummmm) will also have a fashion showcase presented by White House Black Market, and a natural hair showcase by A Natural Affair salon. Founder Melissa Hibbert shared, “This empowerment tour will be an invaluable experience that explores the not-so-glamorous, but ever-so vital aspects of beauty that every entrepreneur needs to understand. Nowhere else will a person have access to this much knowledge, experience, talent, and expertise in one room, in one day!"
In regards to her vision for Beauty and the Business, Hibbert stated, “I’ve learned a lot throughout my journey from a corporate executive to now an entrepreneur. I understand, through my many obstacles and victories, that although the passion will drive you, there are also some very key fundamentals and strategies that have to be implemented and understood in order to turn a hobby into a career" She also stated, "This conference will include so many essential elements to this industry shared by some of the top names in the business. We all are devoted to paying it forward and providing a boost to the next wave of entrepreneurs. I found my passion and now it’s time to inspire others to find and cultivate theirs.”
