‘Okay, let’s be for real. Me and you, we can both have clothing stores, right? We still can hang out and go out together. Guess what? People shop at more than one store. You see makeup lines, we all have got a makeup line. When you go to Macy’s, do you not see 100 makeup brands in there. All of them right there next to each other still selling. Why do some of us feel like, ‘Oh, it’s a problem?’ I do not feel like I am in competition with anybody. The way I market my brands is going to be different than how you market your brand. Both of us, if we are both promoting each other, people are going to hit up both spots. They are going to buy from both companies,’ she explained.
It was about time someone said it!
Now we all feel a little more empowered and more confident to start hustling.
