We had the good fortune of connecting with Kyli Reeves and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Kyli, how do you define success?
I think true success is a life without struggle. We all have our own set of issues and challenges. True success is overcoming, healing, having faith in your path, and getting to a space where you can just be and enjoy all of your hard work.
What should our readers know about your business?
I’m so proud of my business and where it’s at today because two years ago I didn’t have faith that I could do this alone. I can kill a 9-5 easily, but I always questioned myself and my ability to truly be successful in pursuing my passions. One of my business ventures had already blown up in my face, I was recovering physically and mentally from being in and out of the hospital, and I hated my 9-5. I was miserable. Having faith in myself and that initial push to start was the toughest part for me. Looking back on everything now, I think what I went through has contributed to my brand and it’s current success. The knowledge I gained from my first venture, the patience I gained from recovering from illness, and being miserable forced me to go for it… cause I mean when you’re unhappy what more do you have to lose? It’s still very challenging, but I’d rather live the life I know is meant for me than settle because I’m scared of not reaching my pinnacles.
Aesthetic started off with styling only, and in two years it’s expanded to a boutique, brand development, and creative direction. I’m manifesting success and creative expansion for my business!
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
During COVID-19 I’m pretty much restricted to my extended patio with my sound system or getting cute for a nice restaurant. Some of my favorites in Dallas are Town Hearth, Drake’s, and Nick & Sam’s
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?
My shoutout definitely goes to my family. I have the best thing you can get in this life and that’s people who see me, accept me, and love me for exactly as I am. They’ve fully supported me and my endeavors my entire life. I owe all of my success to them.
