Tikila is celebrating her 30th birthday today and couldn’t be more excited about her new business and boutique!
What made you want to become an entrepreneur?
TW: As a child I loved fashion, I’d like to say “it’s in me not on me” jokingly, I love to dress and style. I had my first job at sixteen and from there I knew I wanted to be on my own time.
What was the first step you took in putting your vision into motion?
TW: Getting into modeling and music videos were the first steps I took into breaking into the entertainment business. Entertainment goes hand in hand with fashion, it’s one big circle and I loved the fact that I could make my own schedule. Building exposure for you and your brand helps with marketing your business a lot.
What risks did you take with your business?
TW: I took risks by investing the last of my funds several times into my business. I’ve worked long days and nights without sleep because I rarely say “no” to a booking. The more I’m booked the more people I encounter. The more people I encounter the more clientele I receive.
What’s the best way to build your business and still keep yourself afloat financially?
TW: Stay focused on working towards your goals and focus on what’s important.
Top 3 things you would tell young females aspiring to own their own boutiques one day?
TW: Pray, Listen, and Act on it!
What sets “She Picture Perfect” boutique and brand apart from the rest?
TW: We provide a private shopping experience in our luxe showroom and we have an onsite lash technicians. We have trendy and unique pieces that you won’t find anywhere else in the city. She picture perfect provides a simple yet stylish, luxe shopping experience.
