Meet Our Professional Homegirl of the Week: Pipbuzzz Nails
1. Social Handles (personal and business)
2. What do you do and what does a day of your work look like?
I am a celebrity and editorial manicurist. My day is different every day. Some days are eight to ten hours, three hours or maybe I can stay at home (that doesn't happen too often.
3. What motivates you?
My close circle of friend and family motivate me but most importantly I motivate myself. Giving the opportunity to wake up and give a gift to do what I do and love it is icing on the motivation cake.
4. How do you balance with your career, side hustles, and your social life?
My career and side hustles are one and the same. They are both equal to hustling. They both fall into the same field of work, beauty, and fashion. I'm a manicurist that not only has celebrity and private clients as well as editorial work but I also own and run a grooming service business www.pipbuzzztogo.com, that caters to corporate offices providing them with manicures and massages. My online resale and consignment store www.itsfabulist.com taps into my fashion side and it requires the same amount of hustle as my career does, so the hustle is what I do not what the jobs are. Social life? What's that? Lol joking. I have a saying "you make time for the things and the people you want to make time for" period! No excuses, so with that being said, I make time for things I want to do. It is possible :)
5. What does Professional Homegirl mean to you?
I guess a Professional Homegirl would be a woman that knows what she wants, works towards it and does it. No excuses, just do it.
6. What advice would you give to young women that want to pursue their dreams?
Always follow your dreams. You may get 100 Nos and 100 doubters but all you need is one yes and one supporter. Don't give up. Research how to do what you dream about, educate yourself and surround yourself around people with the same mindset. When I was a young girl, I would tell my dad, I'm going to marry a professional ballplayer (ughh). Lol. And he would say in order to do that you have to surround yourself with people who are in that field. Of course, growing up I have changed my mind but I say this to say, I did surround myself around people who were business oriented, go-getters, business owners, wealth and good hearts and what my dad said was true. I was able to blossom into my career because of that. They have helped me, supported me and I've learned a plethora of knowledge by just being around them. My career started because someone told me "No" and here I am.
