Each and every Wednesday for “Woman Crush Wednesday”, The Dean of Fashion & Beauty will select an entreprenHER to be featured in her “Boss Babe Spotlight” Series. This series has been curated to shine some light on the small businesses of women who are unapologetically and authentically being themselves while leaving a footprint behind in the world that they live in.
WHO’S UP NEXT? Today, I am featuring: Seshata Rose. Recently, I had the chance to interview Seshata and learn some new and exciting things about her. I want to thank her for taking the time to speak with me so that I could shine some light on all of her dopeness and share it with you all. I certainly look forward to continuing to curate, collaborate, create and celebrate with her in the future! You can shower her with your support by purchasing one of books or editing services! Sit back, relax, pour a glass of wine and read about what she shared with me:
What do you want people to know about you and your business?
My business is all about a love for words, whether you’re a reader, writer or both. Seshata Rose is a brand and business that serves as my creative outlet and healing space. I discuss sensual liberation, body positivity and women empowerment. Because I have such a love for literary enlightenment, a sub part this brand is ” From Thought to Print.” With in this space, I offer literary services and coaching through my 12 step self-publishing process.
What drives you as business owner?
Financial freedom and creative liberty. As a business owner, it feels good to have something that is mine. That I can decide what does or doesn’t work for me. A space where I can create openly. Even though being a business owner can be frustrating, what continues to propel me forward the my vision I have for building sustainability. The end goal is being about to move on my own time and building multiple income streams.
What kind of legacy/footprint do you want to leave behind?
I hope to leave the message that you are capable and more than enough. Finding your purpose and doing what you love is important. Happiness and sustainability is important.
What knowledge would you like to impart on other small business owners, both new & aspiring and old & experienced?
The first is you don’t have to figure everything out on your own. Don’t reinvent the wheel. Even if you’re developing something that is unlike anything else, you’re not the first person to run a business. Leverage your strengths but don’t be afraid to ask questions, seek help and RESEARCH! Second is patience. You may have to invest more at first than you get back. Sometimes you’ll have to try a few things before finding what works for you. Growth takes time, so exercise patience. Lastly, be authentic to yourself, your brand and your business.
What does being a “boss babe” mean to you?
Making a way for yourself, even when the path isn’t preset. Staying committed to one’s aspirations and a person who pursues what makes their soul smile. A boss babe has a grind that doesn’t stop and won’t compromise exploring their gifts/purpose.
If you had to pick a phrase to serve as your words of affirmation, what would it be?
“Own your truth.” That’s my mantra. Speak your truth. Live in your truth.
