Simone Randle and Tammie Sykes, the founders of Dion Michaels, have made history as the first women of color to launch a simple results-driven skincare line that is exclusively for men of all ethnicities. They created this line to tackle the top skin challenges that were impacting the men in their lives – from razor burns to dry beards. They quickly realized that these challenges played a significant role in confidence too.
Dion Michaels is a convenient subscription-based skincare line that provides men with two simple products, a grooming cream, and a skin balm. The skin care line not only improves and protects men’s skin but also boosts their confidence.
“We feel that the male population in the skincare industry is an underserved market,” said Randle. “Men want an effective product and they want a simple regimen.”
Meet Kimberly Jordan, the founder of Kimmy’s Greetings who is now capitalizing on her talent to create unique gift ideas for others. What began as a hobby in 2008 is now a very successful business that has produced more than 50,000 handcrafted custom greeting cards, memory books, scrapbooks, etc.
Her company’s mission is to establish new and unique greeting cards that offer style and heartfelt messages. When she started 13 years ago, it quickly went from being a hobby to becoming a part-time business, and ultimately, has now become a full-time enterprise.
Kimberly’s first interaction with greeting cards began when she was a little girl. Her mother would have her sign the holiday cards before mailing them. Kimberly said she was inspired to pursue creating cards by her stepmother after she saw a floral arrangement that Kimberly had made and how she set her dinner table.
