Today we’d like to introduce you to Bria McGhee.
Hi Bria, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
Hi! My name is Bria McGhee and I’m 23 years old. I was born and raised in Moncks Corner, SC. I have a small business named B.Minkz and we sell mink lashes so here’s a little backstory on how it came about. Back in 2020, my best friend Shardé came to me about selling makeup with her, and at first, I didn’t want to do it for many reasons.
Eventually, I agreed to do it with her because why not take that step out on a leap of faith and do something I haven’t done before. We did it for a couple of months then realized it wasn’t for us.
Doing that did give me some business ideas of my own that I could do, and that’s when I decided to start a lash business. I spent hours watching YouTube videos on how to find a good vendor, and all the essentials I’ll need to achieve this.
Honestly, it didn’t take me long to get everything together. When it comes to my business I do everything myself and I love it. Everything worked out in the end with trial and error of course.
We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
Anything you do in life you’re going to face a lot of obstacles so no this hasn’t been a smooth road. Starting/having a business isn’t easy at all. Some days you may not have sales and other days you will.
I’m still new to the business world so I’m learning important things every day, and one really important thing I’ve learned is you have to be very consistent and promote! There has been plenty of times when I started to get unmotivated and started to lose sight of why I started my business in the first place.
When you start to feel like that it’s always good to make sure you have a good support system. People who truly believe in you and your business, or anything you do in life. I’m beyond grateful that I have that. It’s this one person who was really there for me since I started selling lashes.
They gave me so much good business advice and words of encouragement. They also were hard on me but they helped me and for that, I’ll be forever grateful for them. It’s hard nowadays to find people like that, people that care so when you find someone like that make sure you cherish them.
Thanks – so what else should our readers know about B.Minkz?
B.Minkz was founded in May of 2021. We are known for our great quality 3d and 25mm mink lashes. As of right now, we offer nine different lashes ranging from long, short, dramatic/fluffy, and natural lashes.
Also, offer a B.Minkz lash bundle box where you can choose three different lashes of your choice, and with those lashes, you’ll get a spoolie, stainless-steel tweezers, satin scrunchie, lipgloss, and lash glue. What sets B.Minkz apart is the quality of the lashes.
They’re comfortable to wear for a long period of time because of the thick flexible lash band. Since we’ve been in business we have shipped out of state to Queens, New York. If you are looking for great quality lashes that will give you that extra confidence, B.Minkz is for you.
Come get your Minkz by Bee!
What were you like growing up?
Growing up, I was very shy and quiet and to this day I’m still shy.
Being shy has held me back from a lot of things. Missed out on plenty of opportunities. Starting my business forces me to get out of my comfort zone, and that’s something I needed.
My senior of high school is when I got into makeup so I do have an interest in that. Makeup is very therapeutic to me and makeup and lashes go hand to hand.
