We had the good fortune of connecting with Edna Kyei-Quayson and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Edna, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
The idea to start my own business actually came from a vision God gave me. My mother is a small business owner and has been one for over 40 years now. I saw how hard she worked and the endless hours she put in and have been in awe of her work ethic and compassionate spirit for her clients. Despite that, I couldn’t see myself as an entrepreneur. Had God not prompted me to, I doubt if I would ever gone through with it. If God wills, I would like to add the component of counseling to my brand.
What should our readers know about your business?
It hasn’t been an easy walk as an entrepreneur who wants to do things from a Kingdom perspective. I have been able to overcome challenges with the help of God and by His grace, will continue to. Some of the lessons I’ve learned along the way are the world’s idea of success looks different from God’s, keep trusting in God as I work His plan, and give my best to the people that I serve. My brand’s existence is to bridge the gap between faith, relationships, and mental health, through our apparel and home goods products. Eventually, by God’s grace, I would like to add counseling as part of a service to provide.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I would like to shoutout Christina Oduro, Zeena Oduro, Yvonne Ademiluyi, and Charlene Jean-Pierre to name a few people who have been instrumental on this journey.
