We had the good fortune of connecting with Keanna (Kekee) Coleman and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Keanna (Kekee), how do you think about risk?
My whole life & career is based on risk taking! To me, its about taking that chance on yourself! Even when the odds are against you. Even when the naysayers say you can’t. I come from nothing! So in reality I had nothing to lose, but more time. After my mother tragically passed when I was 17, leaving me to raise my little brother & sister. I realized at an early age I am all I got and all they got! I took my lemons and made some spiked lemonade. By the age of 23 I realized I had to take a chance on faith. Get out of my comfort zone and take some risks for my family to acquire generational knowledge and wealth. Here I am and I still have tons of work to do. Everyday is a risk. Every day as a mother and entrepreneur I have to take chances!

My mother always said, the biggest mistake you can make, is not taking that chance on what you really want & instead living life with regret thinking “what if”.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I have been a Licensed Esthetician for 3 years now. I’ve always been fascinated with beauty and fashion, so I always knew that would sorta be what I would want my career to be. It wasn’t until I had kids and was dealing with hormonal issues and acne for the first time in my adult years, where I started taking skincare seriously. I started formulating my own natural products and remedies and using them on my face and it actually started working. I researched different skin care routines and educated myself on the topic way before even fathoming going to school for it. In 2019 I enrolled into college and All Naturale Beauty was born. One thing I will say, and never forget!! SLOW & STEADY wins the race. Not slow and inconsistent. Slow and steady! Never compare yourself to others and what they got going on. Put all that energy into what you got or want going on. You have to be willing to invest in yourself. In your knowledge as well. Never get too comfortable. Always push to be the best at what you do. Stay up on the latest trends and educate yourself, make sure you are knowledgeable and passionate about whatever it is you do! You have the power to obtain whatever you want for yourself and business. Its never easy. You have to take some risks, but in the end it will all be worth it. But, you have to truly believe that!

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Ehh. Honestly im a pretty chill person. I don’t really care to ” go out” per say. So if it was up to me I would plan a trip to King Spa. Its about 2 hours away from Oklahoma. We would rent a suite there for about a week with our kids and relax and appreciate life. I also LOVE food. So I would like to dedicate maybe a day or two to just restraunt hop. Try to find some unique soul food or different stuff we don’t have in Oklahoma, yet.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I have to most definitely Shoutout my mother first and foremost. Rip Lilly K. Without you & all that you instilled in me, I wouldn’t be half the woman I am today! Thank you for all the risks you took for us. I hope your proud. Continue watching over our family!

Secondly, shout out to my father. He also made me into the woman I became to be. He also took many risks and losses in his life. Yet and still, HE KEEPS GOING. S/ o to “𝘚𝘦𝘷𝘦𝘯 π˜₯𝘦𝘒π˜₯𝘭𝘺 𝘴π˜ͺ𝘯𝘴 𝘰𝘧 𝘒 𝘴𝘡𝘳𝘦𝘦𝘡 𝘴𝘰𝘭π˜₯π˜ͺ𝘦𝘳 𝘡𝘰 𝘳𝘦𝘱𝘦𝘯𝘡𝘒𝘯𝘀𝘦” . Be on the lookout! Its a book depicting my father’s real life story & it has some glimpses of myself and perspective as well. I love you dad. Even when you couldn’t be there physically, you were always there mentally. Always pushing me to be the best version of myself and believing in myself. Its up! Its are time its only right.
