JT’s Mother: Getting people to know we exist is always a challenge, but there is nothing like word of mouth. We strive to be the best, and that in turn is what makes people want to tell others about us.
HB: What would you contribute your level of success to?
JT’s Mother: Faith, perseverance and endurance. In the beginning when business was slow, I thought about closing up, but it was faith that kept me believing that eventually, this business would turn around. Now we have a waiting list!
HB: Any advice for young girls who want to be like you?
JT: Just like I say in my book, “You Work It GIrl: A Tween’s Guide to Beauty, Fashion and Other Cool Stuff,” girls should begin thinking about their future now. Don’t put limits on yourself.
