We had the good fortune of connecting with Kimberly Lewis and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Kimberly, how do you think about risk?
This is a great question! There’s absolutely no way you can be an entrepreneur if you’re not willing to take risks. You win some and lose some, but the key is to keep going. I’ve had to make several adjustments with my business throughout the years and there have been times where I had to put things completely on hold. Nevertheless, I made up in my mind that no matter what it takes, I won’t quit.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Holy Kiss Cosmetics is not just lipstick; it’s evangelism. We’ve been through a great deal of ups and downs, mainly because of my personal battles with depression and other major events that took place in my life. The lipstick is a line with a purpose. As a survivor of a suicide attempt and person who battled with low self esteem, I wanted to create a positive brand that spoke life into those that came in contact with it. Each tube is named after something that reminds women of who we are and what we should speak over our lives. When I finally realized how valuable my life was, I began to speak life and encourage others to do so.
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?
A few of my personal favorites are; Cheesecake Factory, The Melting Pot, Grand Lux and Blend Bar! Those are definitely worth checking out! 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 dedicate this series to my mother, Linda Sterling. She has always stood by my side, good, bad and ugly. It’s something about having someone in your life that never gives up on you, even in those moments that you want to give up on yourself. I thank God for blessing me with the best mother on Earth!
