Today we’d like to introduce you to Latonya Notise.
Hi Latonya, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstory.
As a young girl growing up in Far Rockaway, New York and being the daughter of immigrant parents from the island of Jamaica, I’ve always lived with a certain level of hope & desire to succeed at whatever I do, but never had I envisage a career in business ownership, let alone cosmetics and body enhancing products.
I actually thought I’d be working for a company in the beauty industry, but I’ve grown to appreciate self-reliance.
Interestingly however, my mom had worked very hard to care for her kids, that aside, she also had to be an influencer in what has now become a lovefest career move for me. She just had a way of dressing and styling herself when going out that really created an impression on me.
Now being a mom myself of two girls, not only did I have to find a way to generate funds for their welfare, but like my mom, I wanted to be of some influence in their lives… to show them that life is about ideas, choices and action, and being creative to intertwine those realities to your best advantage.
I am still forging ahead, trying to create new strategies that will keep the momentum of my business on the competitive edge of the game.
Inextricably, God has been at the forefront of my trials and tribulations and he has never failed me.
Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
Oh, if wishes were horses, beggars would ride. Not having the capital to inject for running a fully equipped business with staff and the leverage to advertise etc., can be daunting.
It has definitely not been an easy road but all my struggles has got me to where I am today, and that makes it sweet victory.
Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
My business – Diamond Dollz Kollectionz strategically revolutionizes the physical beauty of women of all ages, shapes and styles through a particular approach to make up and body contours.
In alliance with my company’s tagline, I’m known for “bringing out the best in you”.
I’m proud about the sustenance of my business and the happiness that comes from the clients and customers who buys into my beauty and body enhancing products.
What sets me apart is that I’m a people person with a dynamic personality and a difference.
That difference is only made clear when one comes into my sphere of business. But then again, it’s never really about me. It’s all and always about you.
Networking and finding a mentor can have such a positive impact on one’s life and career. Any advice?
The most effective mentor one can find, or have, is not necessarily somewhere out there… it’s right within the enclaves of your mind. That’s precisely where you need to tap into. After all, “the mind” is a powerful thing to waste. Don’t waste it!.
Networking is critical. I engage in multiple workshops, listen to programs that are geared toward my service industry and yes, streaming my business on as many social platforms as possible are relevant strategies to employ.
And never underestimate the good ole “word of mouth” principle. Can’t go wrong with that.
Those are the means in which I invite females all across the globe who are bold or who wants to be bold to let Diamond Dollz Kollectionz bring out the best in their ultra-femininity.
