We had the good fortune of connecting with Tamela Pittman and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Tamela, let’s start by talking about what inspires you?
My name is Tamela Pittman’. What I am inspired by is the unreachable part of this life. I created this product after losing my two brothers. One to cancer and one to heart arrhythmia six months apart. When i look back on the day the doctor said to my younger brother at the time…he was 23 to enjoy the little life he had left it stuck with me. He only had a little time to get things right and create memories. That wasn’t until my second brother graduated college in criminal justice and wanted to stop people from harming one another and crimes he passed months later. I needed to give something back to them and thats how BLUE FLOWER was created from the pain of losing family you love.
What should our readers know about your business?
My story is a little different then a lot of other people. I am very proud of being a mother of two and teaching them all the tricks to the trades that i have learned. I am excited about the future and what could happen and whats already currently happening right now. This is never easy running a hair, skin, and beard operation. Its highs and lows and hoops and hurdles you have to overcome and when you finally get there you say to everyone …whoo hoo i made it. Life is a roller coaster and you have to take the ride even when you want to or not. i overcome challenges daily. I have to be prepared with my armour on to go tot battle with the world. Its always something. I just try to bend with it. LOL What i want the world to now about this brand is i dreamt it. I believe God has alot to do with the plans. I am just the handcrafted individual and God is the true creator. he given me every step in such perfect timing. I believe its a blessed oil. Its amazing i love it. Its my all time favorite. It produces real results for everyone. I just say consistency is the key>.
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?
OMG…this question is so unbelievable…lol I would go to a field of blue flowers in Texas and take photos. Possibly hit up Deep Ellum or anything Botanical like the Arboretum/ Garden spots…horse back riding…get a five star dinner at ocean prime…pedicures something like that. I am so chill so its whatever that is safe and beautiful I’m with it. LOL
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 would like to dedicate a shout out to my mother. Patra Evans…She has a group called THERAPY 4 HURTING HEARTS she created through the pain of losing my brothers. She has supported me so much and stood by my side. My mother was in the beginning helping me with inventory and shipping and passing out flyers. It’s an amazing experience and i appreciated all her help.
