The African Heritage Foundation introduces you to another one of its very talented members. Here to share with you her businesses, her dreams, her aspirations and a little bit of herself in an interview with the AHF is Ms Ria Riley. We of the AHF hope that this feature proves beneficial to Ria and we ask you to look her up and give her some your business.
AHF. Tell us your name and a little about yourself. Things that you would like people to know about you.
RIA. My name is Ria Riley, I'm a budding entrepreneur. Specializing in hair braiding and make up. Another business I am developing is event planning. Originally I wanted to be a doctor, then a nurse, then a teacher but my passion has always been hair. I also speak French and will be tutoring in the upcoming home schooling system that is being created through the AHF which as you know I am a member of.
AHF. Introduce your business to us.
RIA. The names of my businesses are RIAS HAIR CREATIONS & INDULGE DE BAND . It was always my passion was into hair and nails from a very young age.
AHF. What was your inspiration in creating your businesses?
RIA. This was always my passion, I was into hair and nails from a very young age. It's only after having my son and wanting to provide for him that I took it more seriously, about 3 years ago. With the other business it's also another dream of mine, launching a t-shirt band for crop over fore day morning.
AHF. What are you presently doing to assist with the development of your business?
RIA. Right now I'm currently working with the YOUTH ENTREPRENEURSHIP SCHEME on both of my businesses.
AHF. What would you say makes your business different from the others out there?
RIA. My business differs due to the atmosphere I have created around it. I work from home and due to this, a more personal one on one, serenity filled experience is afforded my clients. It is almost like having your service done in the comfort of your own home.
AHF. How can potential clients contact you?
RIA. You can follow me on Instagram @rias_hair_creations , I'm also on facebook or whatsapp 250-0953. I live in the parish of St Phillip and work by appointments.
AHF. If you had to hang a plaque with a saying or quote in your business place for all to see, what would it be and why?
RIA. My motto is "What the mind can conceive it can achieve". I would hang that up. I think the reason is self explanatory. This is my vision and I will achieve it. Others should never doubt their abilities to manifest their dreams.
AHF. What is your ultimate goal for your business?
RIA. My ultimate goal would be to join my two businesses in the long term. I would cater for the cosmetic needs of my clients and others for various crop over events. I want to have one of the biggest if not the biggest band on the road for crop over.
