Keep Inspiring Others-My Story Of Success

I’m a Raw Hair Spe­cial­ist and Wig Instruc­tor with more than 8 years of expe­ri­ence. Born in the Nether­lands, I moved to Mia­mi at the age of 25. Today I would like to share my busi­ness adven­ture with you.

How did you come up with the name for your company?

My friend Nel­son actu­al­ly helped me. I knew I want­ed some­thing dif­fer­ent than usu­al and I liked the word unbe­weave­able. As in hav­ing weave so amaz­ing it’s unbe­weave­able. But unbe­weave­able by itself didn’t sound right. So after brain­storm­ing with my friend he came up with Be unbe­weave­able and I loved it.

What inspired you to start your business?

After apply­ing for numer­ous jobs and not get­ting hired, I got tired. I fin­ished my Bach­e­lor Degree in Com­mu­ni­ca­tions and always worked while study­ing. But accord­ing to all the posi­tions I applied for, I did not have enough expe­ri­ence. It was my goals to work in PR and Fash­ion, so at one point I decid­ed to fol­low an intern­ship in Ams­ter­dam with the hopes of get­ting hired. I trav­elled every day from Rot­ter­dam to Ams­ter­dam, work­ing 9–5 with­out actu­al­ly get­ting paid (I was that deter­mined). Unfor­tu­nate­ly I did not get hired and decid­ed to quit and trav­el around. I packed my bags and went to Mia­mi, Colom­bia and on a cruise. After 6 months my tourist visa end­ed so unfor­tu­nate­ly I had to come back home. Once back home I decid­ed not to work for a boss any­more. I always had an inter­est in hair and this was the start of my Be unbe­weave­able adventure.

Who was your first client? What did this client buy?

My very first client was a friend of a friend who bought bun­dles. I couldn’t afford a web­site yet, because I did­n’t have any mon­ey. I was post­ing on Face­book / Insta­gram and rely­ing on mouth to mouth adver­tis­ing. I also turned one half of my liv­ing room into a lit­tle store. I had a big ban­ner that I put in the mid­dle of my liv­ing room. In a white Ikea clos­et I kept some stock and I sticked a price list on the wall. I had a high table with two chairs so my cus­tomers were able to sit while ask­ing ques­tions. They water upon arrival, and I had a wel­come sign on my door to the liv­ing room to the shop­ping expe­ri­ence even more real.

What resources did you have when you started?

I just had a dream, the willpow­er and a sup­port­ive boyfriend who was crazy enough to join on my trip to India.
