We had the good fortune of connecting with Chanel Green and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Chanel, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
My thought process initially was “how could l provide quality skin care to my children” and then it developed into “how can I provide quality skin care for the community while educating about the benefits of natural ingredients” .
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
Condition Me Body Butter is an all natural skin care line providing nourishing blends from earth to skin. I have dedicated countless hours of research , used previous knowledge provided from the Medical industry, ancient healing remedies from our ancestors and my own ailments to curate recipes and formulas that provide lasting protection.
Nothing about being an entrepreneur or creative is easy. We are always doubting ourselves, worried about finances and questioning have we done enough. The best way to overcome all of our obstacles -the ones we create and the ones we are given- is to never stop. I’ve given up once during my 3 year process and when I reset , revised and restored my faith, God put me in places man cannot.
I want the world to remember or origins. I want the world to remove the thought that only “Doctor’s Know What’s Best” and remember there were ancestors that lived to be 122 years old without ever being to a “Doctor”. I want the world to remember that the earth is our source of healing, nourishment and wealth.
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?
This question is a little difficult. I rarely go out or live as much as I did growing up. I am working on smelling the roses and enjoying the sky more and more.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I have several shout outs and they all are a part of the family I have created. My children Ayanna & Rayne are the leading inspirations, my best friend Victoria Haynes was my very first investor, my husband Anthony works triple time to make sure I can focus solely on the brand, my closets friends always purchase without asking for discounts & always keep me motivated, Mariah Bailey is the ultimate motivation, & all my customers are uplifting and consistent.
