WoooooooHoooooooo!! That was my exact reaction plus a lot of tears when I found out I’d been chosen for the cover of the March is of Black Enterprise Magazine! What a blessing! GOD is good!! So how did it all begin??? Well, years ago my mother gave birth to a baby girl..Okay, we won’t go that far back!! Through a twitter exchange, I was chosen to answer some questions about the use of social media for our business and had a great interview with a reporter and from there it was on! I thought it was going to be an online story, then they called and said they were sending a photographer, then they said I was being considered for the cover! Check out my behind the scenes video of the shoot! This has been a nail biting month, googling and trying to get any glimpse of the issue. Then last week, a friend congratulated me on making the cover, to which I replied, “We won’t know until next week, if we were chosen.” and he said, “Well its on their fanpage!” This was followed by screaming, crying, yelling, jumping and praying prayers of thanks!
I was actually booked on #IndieCruise, for women in the beauty biz and had to leave before the issue came out! I traveled with my Indie/Beauty that Cares Sister Handmade Soap Coach. It was nerve wracking being away, but I got same great support and ideas on how to maximize exposure from my Indie Beauty Sisters! The Indie Beauty Network and founder Donna Maria Coles Johnson have been a great source of support for Pooka from the very beginning! My Indie sisters also had to stop me from swimming ashore to get a copy! It was a long(but restful) week!
We were contacted by Black Enterprise to do a live chat! We’ll let you know the details!
We were also contacted by The Michael Baisden show to be on the show!! Michael Baisden has been a big supporter of our Pooka Journey. We’ll be on the show Wed. March 7
