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

Hi Javi, what is the most important factor behind your success?
the most important factor is support. without support, my business wouldn’t be a business. i wouldn’t have sales or site traffic at all. also, keeping faith in my business. on the days or even weeks where i have no sales, i have to keep going and keep believing in my brand. there is no giving up.

What should our readers know about your business?
so i own a lash company, The Don Lash Co.. my brand and aesthetic is me completely. i got to where i am with no help at all and it was & wasn’t easy. that’s what im proud of; to be able to say i did this all on my own. i overcame each challenge by learning new things and personally unlearning some bad habits such as my indecisiveness (still a challenge though lol). what i want the world to know about my brand and story is everything is authentic. top tier lashes and customer service.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
its sooo many new places opening up in the city, i would honestly be trying new things with them. but my favorite restaurant is pappadeaux so that’s a definite food spot to hit up. as of recently my favorite nightlife spot has been Culture (lgbt nightclub). and i would try other nightlife places i haven’t been to yet too.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
my family and close friends. they refuse to let me give up on what i want and they’re always there just being supportive of everything and every idea.
