How has your business grown over the last 3 Years?
It is growing primarily from word of mouth and the growth has been great!
We also go to several events throughout the state during the summer time. This has been a great way to meet people and to grow our business.
We are starting to see more and more business also coming from google.
Do you have advice about starting a business?
Follow your passion. Have fun. Be creative and be prepared to make some mistakes.
Always be looking at different ways to market your business.
I am always sporting a henna design and when people ask where I got it, I am ready to,hand them my business card.
