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

Hi Leah, Let’s talk about principles and values – what matters to you most?
What I value and what matters most to me is being my own boss. I call the shots ! I make the decisions I think are best for the business. I’m doing something that makes me happy and I dont have to work under/for someone else !

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
Im mostly excited about opening my own smoke shop. HOPEFULLY, if all goes well it will open in 2022 or sooner ! I already have a plan now im just saving and investing in myself !!

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would like to shoutout my significant other for pushing me to start this business and everytime I tried to quit he literally did not allow me too!! My mom and Sister for supporting me and treating my brand like their own !!
My uncle June for investing in me and helping me with whatever he could ! he ALWAYS ask me if i need help with anything!
And the biggest shout out to not only my hairstylist (@slayeffect_ on instagram!! The BEST IN HOUSTON!!) but my close friends (yall know who yall are lol) and the support system i have on instagram!! The people you dont know will support you wayyyy more then the ones you do !!! nd my hairstylist taylor been supporting me since we met !!! She give me key information about being a business owner that helped me along the way !
