We had the good fortune of connecting with Latasha Baker and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Latasha, what is the most important factor behind your success?
I would say honesty, trust, and respect! I treat all my clients the same way I would want to be treated if I was receiving this service somewhere. It builds a rapport between you and your client knowing that they can trust you to be honest with them and it not being all about the financial gain.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I am a certified permanent makeup artist specializing in eyebrow makeup. I believe what sets me apart from the others is that I take my time, I am always looking for ways to evolve and learn more, and I treat every client how I would like to be treated. It’s not always easy because as a new business owner you always find things you can change to make it easier for you and your clients. For me, I’m sure to put policies into place that I am able to stand by. My work speaks for itself and while I do believe that there may be more challenges to come I hope that they are minimal. I’ve learned that you can’t lax your policies for people. Say what you mean and mean what you say. It doesn’t make you mean or rude. It’s business!
I want the world to know that my brand is built by me and that everyday is a new opportunity for me to learn more and become better! I will always strive to give my clients the 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.
I would definitely make sure to include a nice home cooked meal but also to try out some of the local food establishments in the area.
I like older and mature crowds with nice music and enjoyable atmospheres so brunch spots with live music would be awesome and on top of the list. I’m also a homebody and feel that I can have the most fun at my home lol. The most fun and exciting times are things that are unplanned. Traveling to places you have never been and seeing things that aren’t what you wouldn’t normally see are the most exciting.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I would like to dedicate my shoutout to my husband, children, and my family! Since before my business came into fruition I was blessed to have big time supporters pushing me to do whatever I set my mind to and give 100% at all times. My children make me want to never give up, my husband along with my mother and sister encourage me, my in laws support me! I am truly blessed beyond measure.
