We had the good fortune of connecting with Erica King and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Erica, what do you want people to remember about you?
I would like my legacy to be about me creating opportunities for other women, especially minority women. I want people to remember me through my daughters, the way I inspire them to be business women and future leaders. Women who give back, and look back to help the next women. I want to be know for being a loyal wife, a proud mother, and a courageous business women!

What should our readers know about your business?
KEE Essential Beauty is a E-Commerce beauty brand that specializes in natural/ vegan cosmetics. What sets us apart from the other brands is our plant base formulas that’s easy on the skin. We promote and stand by our clean cosmetics pledge. Starting a business is never easy, there are good days and a lot of bad days but I had to learn to be patient with my self, and celebrate the small wins. Appreciate every step that was taken that has brought me where I am now. I’ve learned some tough lessons throughout my journey, like TRUST and LOYALTY, even family meme era not supporting me but i couldn’t allow the dos trust in others and the lack of support from the people close to me deter me from my goal. I have to push through as there is no plan B. This must work! We are a mother/ daughter trio and we are working hard everyday to bring top quality cosmetics to the world. It don’t matter what race, gender, ethnicity we have the products so you can look and feel your best.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
When my friends come in town, I love to show them the art district, all the local flare of Houston fine artist. We would eat at the famous Turkey Leg Hut and then wine down at Erma Rose Winery.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Yes, I would not be here today if it wasn’t for my amazing husband Fabian King, and my good friend Deidre Cross who pushed me to be great! Also the host of other folks that started with me in the early days like Esprit Hunter.
