We had the good fortune of connecting with LaQuisha Moore and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi LaQuisha, do you have some perspective or insight you can share with us on the question of when someone should give up versus when they should keep going?
I have officially been in business for myself for 5 years, but I have been a licensed stylist and behind a chair for going on 16 years. In those 15 years I have QUIT practicing cosmetology 3 times. Each time that I quit, there was something that kept tugging at me to go back. When you are truly passionate about something, you always find your way back to it in some form or fashion. Passion will push you to keep going, when you start to lose that passion and the fire that drives you, that’s when you know it’s time to move on to another level in life, but never give up!
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
I am a serial entrepreneur whose main focus is helping my community and women empowerment. I am a motivational speaker, an accountability partner, and a life and business coach. I am the co-owner of The Luxe Lounge, an up and coming beauty lounge, and though the lounge is my main focus, all of my ventures are aligned with my ultimate vision of bettering our community and making a woman feel like a queen. I am most excited to be in a position to help make the necessary changes that the world needs to see. I feel like what sets me apart is my business is more than a business, it is almost like a ministry. Lives are changed in my chair, from the conversations to the actions taken. I speak life into my clients because I want to see us all win! It is more than a hair appointment when you come see me. I initially set out to change one life at a time, and that started out behind the chair in my salon. Understanding the ministry and manifestation that took place in such an intimate setting, I knew that I could not limit myself to my direct interactions and that work had to be done. I set out on a new adventure and life has been a rollercoaster ever since! There have been plenty of ups and a good amount of downs, but I wouldn’t change any of it for the world.
