We had the good fortune of connecting with Tiffany Henderson and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Tiffany, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
The determination to have my own business was inevitable to me growing up and obtaining something I could past on to my children drove me even more to start my own business.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
Dakine&Min3 Skincare started as a side hustle created from a concern I had for my child’s eczema ridden skin and facing an end of use of steroid enhanced creams. It took research and family and friends to encourage me to push to make it a profitable business. I joined a program called Thrive to enhance my knowledge of a business and what it would take to be successful.
Being a business owner is not for the weak is what I tell people but it is the most rewarding experience fails and wins in all. The best thing I’ve learned on this entrepreneurial journey is that there are no small wins when you have given big efforts.
As Dakine&Min3 Skincare grows Im am excited about all the new whipped and dripped products I will be introducing based off of the great feedback from customers. Dakine&Min3 Skincare is an inexpensive luxury body care line encouraging self care and being a baddie on a budget.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
My go to place when family and friends visit I take them to visit the Garden of the Gods to get a view of how beautiful Colorado is. My place to eat and grab a drink is COATI in downtown Colorado Springs and for a nice hangout and chill Club Tilt is my go to.
The best people I have ever been around are the people that are creating better lives and building up the youth in the community of Southern Colorado.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
