We had the good fortune of connecting with Kaitelynne Bell and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Kaitelynne, how did you come up with the idea for your business?
I alway loved makeup as a little girl I remember watching my grandmother do her makeup everyday and wishing i was old enough to do mine .So when i got of age to start doing my makeup I literally stayed up all night just watching YouTube videos of girls doing there makeup and the next day practicing on myself.So i knew makeup was my passion and my Great Granny (Nanny) is my biggest inspiration my grandmother had her on Beauty business and I just loved hear stories about her journey and having her on business doing what she loved . So when i was taking the first baby steps in staring my business i just remember knowing what i want to sell and how i want to become a MUA but i couldn’t come up with a name and i was seating in my Great grandmother living room 3months pregnant and she keep telling me if the baby a girl you need to name her Viola and the name just stayed with me. I did some research on the name and it was also Great Grandmother middle name i just felt like God was leading me and guiding me to my purpose in life and he still is to this day .
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
What i’m most proud of in my business is the Growth process.When I decided to start my business I was going threw so much,I had just found out I was pregnant I was unemployed and I wasn’t really in the head space I want to be in.So when starting i didn’t know how to begin or even start But with the help of my mother she help me write down a business plan and even help me buy products so now looking forward im soo proud of my progress i learned so many thing with starting my business and im just grateful and blessed,Yes there somedays i think “what did i get myself into” but at the end of it all I know what God has for me and I know his plans for me so i let his will be done!
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I love love love taste Bar there food is perfect literally the Best restaurant in Houston.If you decide to go out to eat there please try there chicken and waffles I promise you want regret it. I also love to shop at the Galleria .The Galleria is the place to be there’s so many stores to choice from in the Galleria, even when i dont want to spend money i go to window show and just look around see what the hottest new things. But when i want some peace and quiet or even just want to spend some time with my daughter i love going to memorial Herman park just seeing different face and having little picnics is just as much fun as going out .
