We had the good fortune of connecting with Sharita Mullen and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Sharita, we’d love to start by asking you about lessons learned. Is there a lesson you can share with us?
The most important lesson that my business has taught me is patience. I have always been the type to think and execute immediately. Being a wife, mother of two boys, and a business owner keeps me on my toes. Home life requires my undivided attention and I assumed that my business did as well. I can blame or thank the pandemic for this, but it sat me down in a way that left me helpless, not in the sense of pity but in the sense that things will be fine either way.
Sometimes you must let things breathe or work itself out. Get your work done, but make sure you and step back to admire the big picture. Things come alive when you let them breathe, like innovative ideas. I realized that quality was not lost when I was not working nonstop or running myself crazy a home with the kids! Taking a beat only helped me clear my mind to run a better household and a rewarding business. Patience showed me if I took a deep breathe, that things will be fine either way.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
Being a professional hairstylist, Trichologist, and Chandler sets me apart from the norm. I have always been on a mission to solve problems, lift spirits, and inject beauty wherever I can. I am most proud of the ways that I can make my clients feel relaxed. It is not easy trying to reassure them from hair loss stress, but it is a lot easier creating a euphoric experience with candles as I tend to their hair needs. I have learned that creating new daily rituals like, taking a few minutes out of each day to spend with yourself and putting yourself first is a necessity & beneficial to your health. Lighting a candle daily has helped me cope with the unavoidable stresses in life. We are mood setters! Our candles will instantly change the ambiance & atmosphere once lit. Our crackling, wooden wick candles help with anxiety, relaxing your mind and body.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Dallas is full of great restaurants, if you are a foodie, you will not be disappointed! The Dallas Famers Market in the heart of downtown deserves a visit for fruits, vegetables, and meat from local farmers. They also have food vendors, retail, and a winery! Next stop, Eddie V’s for the seafood lovers! Its jazz lounge atmosphere is a vibe, you will enjoy a fun night out drinking cocktails with friends. Visit Eataly in North Park Mall for the closest thing to being in Italy.
Be available to shop for cheese, wine, pasta, kitchenware after enjoying a meal in one of their restaurants. Looking for high end shopping experience? Legacy West is an exciting outing for fine dining & luxury shopping. You can not leave without stopping at North Italia where they make all their pasta from scratch daily. The Cacio E Pepe pizza is a winner, and the Glazed Short Rib is to die for!
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?
No one else deserves recognition more than my husband. Just the thought of me saying, “I have an idea” has him stressed, lol. Thinking here we go again, what does this woman have up her sleeve this time! I have dragged this man across the world from Cambodia to Australia with my ideas, and never has he wavered.
I appreciate the patience that he has displayed, being my supportive partner in crime!
