Entrepreneur Spotlight: Whitney Jackson
"Before enrolling in the Business Entrepreneurship Academy, I had no prior knowledge of entrepreneurship or business. During the 10 week course I learned essential information about organizing and operating a business."
Not everyone dreams of being an entrepreneur at a young age, but sometimes it’s through passions discovered later in life that they realize the enormous opportunity of owning a business.
Although she always knew she was a natural leader, Whitney Jackson never considered becoming a full time entrepreneur until last year when she realized that she had special gifts to offer through her own creative ventures.
Whitney’s company, Hair Works Hair Care was founded after she realized the harmful effects of toxic, chemical-laced hair products. “These products,” she says, “often lead to hair loss, scalp conditions and increased risks of developing cancer.” Hair Works Hair Care is a solution to chemical-laced hair products, offering 100% natural hair care solutions designed specifically for textured hair care needs.
These premium, plant-based products naturally nourish, hydrate and stimulate healthy hair and scalp. Currently, Whitney offers a Stimulating Oil, along with a Rich Moisture Mango Leave-In Conditioner.
Whitney credits LAUNCH CHA as being an integral part of her company’s launch. She says, “Before enrolling in the Business Entrepreneurship Academy, I had no prior knowledge of entrepreneurship or business. During the 10 week course I learned essential information about organizing and operating a business. My instructors TJ and Dee were amazingly supportive and brilliant at assisting in cultivating ideas. I have had a great experience with LAUNCH and would highly recommend its programs.”
As she continues to build her company, Whitney’s goal is to establish Hair Works Hair Care as a world-class hair care product manufacturing company whose products are listed among the top 10 textured hair care brands in the United States, becoming not only a leading provider of natural hair care solutions for textured hair needs, but also an educator to individuals about the harmful effects of chemical-laced hair products.
