Tammy Reese: What motivated you to become an entrepreneur?

Betty Ceus: My entrepreneurial journey began very early on at the age of 23. I attribute my entrepreneurial mindset to my Caribbean mother, who wasn’t afraid to step outside of the box.

As a young girl, I’d watched her buy and sell wholesale goods to both local and regional eager buyers. Her courage led me to become confident in myself, and so it was inevitable for me to follow and explore entrepreneurship.

Tammy Reese: How has the experience been for Natural Bunch Kids Hair Care's current partnership & collaboration with Nicklaus Children’s Hospital of Miami?

Betty Ceus: The current partnership & collaboration experience with Nicklaus Children’s Hospital of Miami have been truly rewarding. As more support and awareness are shed on our efforts, Natural Bunch Kids Hair Care will continue to be an additional resource not only for Nicklaus Children’s Hospital but for other hospitals throughout the country.

Tammy Reese: What feedback do you get from the kids and parents?

Betty Ceus: Natural Bunch Kids has the best supporters, we are parent approved and more importantly kids approved.

As we are tagged in `videos, the excitement of each child when receiving their product bunch lets us know we are more than mere bottles, it is an experience and good vibe felt before even putting the products to the test.

Our parents are equally excited, they trust NBK with their children's hair to deliver what is promised.

Tammy Reese: Who has inspired you during the pandemic?

Betty Ceus: Despite some disappointments, I have been inspired by us as a people during this pandemic for the outpour of encouragement and support for our frontline workers.

Tammy Reese: What are some other humanitarian efforts you have been involved in?

Betty Ceus: In 2010 the people of Port-au-Prince Haiti experienced a 7.0 earthquake catastrophe, my humanitarian instincts went into action with donations.

Basic grooming essentials were needed and so Natural Bunch Kids Cares immediately partnered with the non-profit organization EDEYO Foundation to help distribute the Natural Bunch Kids grooming products in the communities most affected to the children in need.

Tammy Reese: What are you looking forward to this year?

Betty Ceus: This year brings in new hope, and a much-needed brighter & lighter energy and so we are looking forward to reconnecting with our supporters, our NBKids via small group events, as well as preparing for many retail partnership opportunities.

Tammy Reese: What advice would you have for anyone who wants to become an entrepreneur?

Betty Ceus: Being an entrepreneur requires several hats, It is a mind, body, and spirit-led connection.

Being an entrepreneur also comes with many sacrifices, you must be a student, ask a lot of questions for understanding, and know it's ok to fail forward.

The learning process begins there, fails at the smallest level but don't give up, always get up and try again this will be your test to reaching success.
