Shots of Serenity Episode 45

[00:00:00] Jasmine St John: Hello, my loves and welcome to Shots of Serenity, where you can find dope conversations and a peace of mind, this podcast is not meant to be a replacement for counseling or psychotherapy. I encourage each and every one of you to seek out a licensed helping professional. As you see fit, this podcast was established as a safe space to continue the conversation of mental health and all of its manifestations. Now let's get into it!

[00:00:38] Jasmine St John: Yay. I am super excited. I have another wonderful, beautiful black own business owner and you guys know how I always like, oh, I bring people on that I know or through connection. So thankfully this person is through connection. We talked like two times, and I just love her energy. I love what she's doing for our community.

[00:00:58] Jasmine St John: I feel like she's, we're already beautiful, but like, you know, making us feel more beautiful. So this black business owner is a makeup artist. Her name is Miss Lexi and I'll allow her to introduce herself.

[00:01:10] Lexi: Hi Y'all. I'm Lexi, my company is named Slayed by Lex. I am a full time makeup artist, but I also sell hair accessories, things like that.

[00:01:22] Lexi: I'm also actually branching on to a skincare line, so yeah.

[00:01:26] Jasmine St John: Yes, period. Okay, Miss Lexi. So who are you today?

[00:01:35] Lexi: Honestly, that changes every single day. Right now. I'm just.

[00:01:43] Lexi: I don't even know how to, where to start. I'm a woman where generational wealth is everything to me right now. So I'm constantly trying to grow. I'm trying to manifest, I'm trying to better myself every day, work on little habits to better myself in the future. Just constantly trying to evolve and become the best version of myself, where I can literally instill that in my kids, as well as even my parents and anybody that comes around me where, when I leave this earth, I leave a stamp on this earth.

[00:02:12] Lexi: So that's pretty much who I am today. Like I said, I'm constantly evolving every day. So you probably ask me that in the next two weeks it'll probably be , you know, better.

[00:02:23] Jasmine St John: Yes, and I freaking love that. Okay. So before we were already talking, like, oh, we don't know each other, but I love your energy because we have Pisces energy.

[00:02:30] Jasmine St John: I feel like that what you just said really just spoke to it. Like you're not some people, I don't think there's a right or wrong way of answering the question, but I don't think, especially our generation realized that we are evolving. Daily, like you don't have to be the person you are yesterday and you don't have to let the quote-unquote person, you were yesterday, determine the way you're going to go today.

[00:02:54] Jasmine St John: If it's not in a positive light. So I love your response. Because like it's woke it's woke as hell. Like, yes, you're evolving daily you don't, you ask her. If I asked you two weeks from now, you're not going to be the same person that you are sitting in front of me right now. So I love that and shout out to you for. It was just so much wokeness in all of this because you know, you didn't just stop at the next generation, but even just our parents, like, we love them. We really do, but they grew up in a different age than us. I feel like we view healing, we view evolution, we view financial freedom in a different type of space, not just, oh, I want to be a millionaire, have money, but no, just stability so I can do what I need to do for my children.

[00:03:46] Jasmine St John: So I love that. I love that. I love that. I love that. So like, what are your, like your goals?

[00:03:52] Lexi: Honestly, my goals in life, career-wise hopefully I have a daughter that can go into the industry. While I'm in the beauty industry, I think, you know, a lot of black women, we grew up kind of insecure for the simple fact is, you know, the stereotypical is, you know, the silky hair, the fire skin, and just not being told that we're beautiful, you know, constantly. I feel like I kind of grew up insecure for so long and then now I'm at that stage where I love myself. That satisfaction of doing someone's makeup and enhancing their features and not making them look different in that, you know, them loving it.

[00:04:34] Lexi: Just one of the best feelings in the world and then I just feel like the cosmetics industry and the beauty industry, that's something that doesn't die. Your image is everything. That's the first thing that's presented to yourself. So self-care in your skin and how you look and how you present yourself and your hair and things like that.

[00:04:51] Lexi: I just feel, because it will never die. It's going to be always lucrative and then just waking up and thinking that that's what my life is revolved around. Just makes it so much better. So that's, I want to branch off into that, but you know, after that it be like real estate and leaving, you know, property to my kids.

[00:05:12] Lexi: That's going to be, that's the main goal just in case, you know, my business does fall through and my kid doesn't want to do that. They can have money in that way. Cause you know, real estate is the best that's going on right now. Then as far as in like me, I just feel fitness is a big thing of me.

[00:05:34] Lexi: Like what you put in your body, you know, that's what big right now for me. Then like meditating and getting my chakras in line. Just things that people don't really like push on. I feel like when you work and you are at your optimal level. You manifest at your optimal level. So that's what I constantly am working on and what I strive for every day. So, yeah.

[00:06:02] Jasmine St John: Yeah. So it's just sounds like you are continuously trying to tap into your higher self in any aspect of your life. How did you kind of decide, like, this is the way oh, well, I guess my first question is, do you feel like helping women enhance their beauty or recognize their beauty is a part of your purpose?

[00:06:24] Lexi: Yes. Oh my gosh. Yes, honestly. It kinda fell on accident. It was really just for me, but like, my mom would like do weddings and stuff like that were being wedding parties. Like, oh, can do my makeup and do this and do that. People be like, oh, that's so good. You should do that. You should do that. So that's kinda how I fell into it.

[00:06:40] Lexi: But honestly, like one day I just kind of woke up and was like a nine to five is not me. I've worked 16 jobs and I'm only 23 and I'm in supervisor. I've been this, I done worked chipotle. I done work Amazon. I know there's nothing. That's really off the table that I have worked in. I just realized like, oh, making someone a billion dollars and seeing a small check ain't it for me and I need something that's fun and that I enjoy and that I love doing every day.

[00:07:14] Lexi: I used to always beat my face every single day and I used to always be looking at makeup tutorials all day. So I seen like, if that's what my life kind of involved, I don't understand why my career shouldn't be in there. So that's kind of how I fell into it. Just like I said, seeing how it makes people feel and confidence is everything because when you have confidence and when you look good, you feel good. When you feel good, you get way more stuff done. You want to get outside the house and actually do stuff. You want to meet new people. You have more motivation to just do things and live your best life. When you feel like that, that, that shit you feel me.

[00:07:49] Jasmine St John: You can say it, like when you feel like that, bitch, you be making us feel like that bitch!

[00:07:54] Lexi: I'm like, why not? Why not be in that field?

[00:07:59] Jasmine St John: Yes. I love all of that. Okay. Like all of that, especially like the beginning. So me personally, I guess I can no longer say I don't like makeup, but I never really felt like it was for me because I am of darker skin.

[00:08:17] Jasmine St John: I felt like either they had me looking ashy or I just couldn't recognize myself. Out of the times that I've tried, I mean, try numerous people from like, you know, like prom, grad pictures. I think out of all that there's probably like one person who ever made me, like you said, just enhance my natural features.

[00:08:38] Jasmine St John: That's the person who helped me with like the picture that I have for this podcast. So to hear that there's people like you, there's people that aren't just like, okay, let me have you look like a completely different person, which works for some people, but not all the time. So yes. Thank you for being you and doing all that you do in this community.

[00:09:04] Jasmine St John: So I feel like we kind of talked about it a little bit, but what would you say in a nutshell your black owned business means to you?

[00:09:12] Lexi: It's family. Like anybody that knows me. I have a whole bunch of tattoos of my family. My sister designed my logo, my little sister. I watch anime and she's really into anime.

[00:09:21] Lexi: So that's why it's kind of anime my logo. Then you have the puffs where it's like black owned and then her face is beat, her lashes are done, like everything in my logo screams me, but just in so many different aspects. Then as far as in my bonnets and stuff like that, and my mom helped me with a lot of those ideas and just pretty much like I said, it's going to be a family business and anything that's incorporated is to benefit my family. My family is incorporated into literally everything. Even my lashes, my lash names were my sisters. My second relaunch were all my sisters names. My business is family, but it's also me authentically.

[00:10:10] Jasmine St John: You know, I just, I love you and I was trying not to say it, but I love you. Like, I just love all of it. Like, wow. Like, wow. Shout out to you and all that you're doing wishing you prosperity in everything that you do because it's just, it's so genuine and so authentic. I think that's maybe kind of this topic kind of came up a lot in other parts of this series, that from the pandemic, it was like, okay, how can I just make a business just to say, I have a business and not really tapping into how this business can, you know, create wealth for you and generations to come, but how does it fit into your purpose? How does it fit into who you are? So that way, that love can also pour into it because I don't think people really realize how important energy is. So if you're coming here with a mindset of just, I'm just trying to get this money.

[00:11:05] Jasmine St John: I don't really care about this person. That pours out into your work that pours out into your customer service. I've never been a customer, but I can only just, right. Like, I can only just assume this energy that you're giving now is poured out into all of your clients. So it really gives a holistic, beautiful experience.

[00:11:28] Jasmine St John: So yes. How would you say, like your work experience looks like? Cause I know, I don't think we mentioned it, but you're a traveling makeup artists. So how does that look?

[00:11:40] Lexi: Honestly, right, right now I work with bodybuilders and bikini models. So I do their makeup and that's completely different than my usual.

[00:11:48] Lexi: I kind of started this in April. So pretty much my weekends are pretty much filled where I'm constantly going to Tampa or Georgia or like next weekend is gonna be Nashville. Well, this weekend actually Nashville. So that's fun. It gets a chance to like kind of network as well as meet different people in different cities.

[00:12:08] Lexi: It's tiring. It's exhausting, but it's fun. Like, I just feel like why not do makeup and travel while doing it? Like, I don't know. It's weird for the simple fact is it's like the type of makeup I do is different from my norm. I'm usually more natural beats. I like that. But, for these types of shows, you know, they want glam, they want glitter, they wanna, you know, kind of look like a different person kind of.

[00:12:37] Lexi: So it is, it puts me in a way where I have to expand and try new things does take me out of my comfort zone. So it allows me to try new things and expand my craft because I don't do it on me. But, so that's, that's pretty fun, but it is fun to actually come back into my city. When now I'm currently in Charlotte, but I was in Tallahassee for a while and I'm currently, I'm actually from Miami.

[00:13:02] Lexi: So it's just like going to my city and doing those natural beats is fun as well. So I mean, I kind of have like, but best of both worlds, so yeah.

[00:13:15] Jasmine St John: So can you kind of speak to how you kind of got where you are, like makeup for bodybuilders? Like how, how does one go from just doing local makeup for those listening that are interested to become traveling and traveling in a certain niche?

[00:13:30] Lexi: Actually that kind of just fell into my lap. God, you know, I'm like, God, I kind of just want to travel when I want to do makeup. Literally. That's what I told God. It's funny because like maybe not even like three weeks or two weeks before I got hit up from my boss. Well, she's my friend, I was practicing timing on my makeup and I knocked it down to like 45 minutes per face. It actually what got me into the door because she was looking for people that can do makeup for like under an hour. She followed me on Instagram and she, you know, actually I was out of town in Charlotte and I was on my way to Atlanta and then I was supposed to be going back to Tallahassee and then Miami, but she hit me up and was like, Hey, um, I have, you know, an opportunity.

[00:14:15] Lexi: Do you want to do the Charlotte Cup? There is different kind of makeup as bodybuilders. In my head, I was just like, I'm just up for the networking and just the experience. It was just supposed to be a one-time thing. I kind of killed it she said, and it kind of was okay, let's do another show, another show. Now I'm like full on to their team, but it literally fell into my lap and that's God. So I'll just tell anybody really just work on what you do, because you don't know what God is doing in the background. So if, as long as your stuff is aligned and you're doing what you have to do, God will set you up into the place that you need to be.

[00:14:49] Lexi: Just do what you gotta do and trust God, literally.

[00:14:55] Jasmine St John: Literally, because like you said, like this wasn't you, well, it wasn't your plan, but just not this way. I think a lot of times people kind of just want something specific and want something that's only conducive to like their current state of mind.

[00:15:10] Jasmine St John: Part of me feels like you were possibly not thinking as big as what opportunity presented itself to you. So that's even just amazing. Like, oh, I want this and God's like, nah, just chill. Just do what you gotta do here and I got something way bigger and better planned for you. Like you said, you said you kind of killed it sis you obviously killed it, for sure that you're now on their team, which is amazing.

[00:15:35] Lexi: And their team is like, literally all our makeup artists and hairstylists are pretty much black, so that's even better where I'm with my, you know, kind and we just all thriving and feeding off of each other and just learning different experiences. So.

[00:15:52] Jasmine St John: Yes. So do you mind kind of just speaking to kind of having a tribe because a lot of people, you know, say self-made or, like a one man show and type of ordeal. I feel like you know, you kind of carry yourself, like you said, family oriented, everybody in your family is a part of your business in some type of way. You have a team that you're working with. So what's, what's that like,

[00:16:17] Lexi: I don't knock anybody that is, self-made like, Hey, that's, what's up. If you had to do it by yourself, then you got to get it done.

[00:16:26] Lexi: But if I feel like you have a supportive family, there is, there is actual, what's the word? Grace in asking for help, especially when it's to benefit everyone, support comes in all different types of ways. Whether it be an idea, whether it's just talking out ideas, whether it's money contribution. Cause a lot of people don't contribute money.

[00:16:50] Lexi: I contribute most of my money, but the support, the follows, the sharing, everything like that. So, I really wouldn't call it self-made even though a lot of the stuff I did myself, but asking my sister to do a logo, asking this, like, there's no reason why it's a billion people on this world and I'm doing anything alone.

[00:17:10] Lexi: So, and then just having a family and people to sit at a table, like at the end, when you get to that table and you're rich. You don't want to just be sitting there alone. You want to be sitting there with people that, you know, for a fact had your back, you know, that saw the vision. Even if they didn't see the vision, they know you and they, you know, were inspired by you and they supported you.

[00:17:33] Lexi: That's all the better. So I feel like there's no reason for me to get to the top alone. That's real lonely. So whoever is willing to support me and help me by all means. I'm going to take it. I was one of those people where it's very prideful where I'm going to try to save all this money and try to do it myself.

[00:17:49] Lexi: But you only going to get there slower. So, and it's more stressed. Like God put us on this world with a whole bunch of people for a reason, we all have separate gifts. Some people are good in finances. Some people are good ideas. Some people are good at executing the idea. Some people are good marketers, you know, because of their followings and how they are.

[00:18:08] Lexi: Every everybody is good at their own things. So I don't understand why everybody can't really just use all their gifts to make one big dream work, you know? So I that's how I look at it is, but, yeah.

[00:18:21] Jasmine St John: Yes. Yes. I love all of that. Like I think kind of what you're just speaking to is we always kind of ask and want to receive stuff, but if we're not putting ourselves in a place to receive, even if it is the little things like I know for awhile, like me, if someone's like, oh, let me pay for this.

[00:18:38] Jasmine St John: I'm like, no, thank you because just in the mindset of, I don't want to feel like. You can hang anything over my head, but in that same, you know, in that same breath, if the person has good intentions and you know, you know, the person, they won't do that. There's no way you can ask to receive, you know, abundance in your life, abundance in, you know, your career, your side hustle, in your mind, body and soul, and you can't take the quote-on-quote little thing.

[00:19:07] Jasmine St John: So. I love that. Okay. So let's tap into your mental health and your business. How would you say you cater to your mind, body and soul as a business owner, and you talked about meditation and all those things. So.

[00:19:20] Lexi: It's hard because, you know, I don't have a, how I say, definite source of income. You know what I'm saying?

[00:19:28] Lexi: It's not like a nine to five. I know every two weeks I'm getting paid so that not having that security is kind of tough there's weeks where it's going to be low, where there's times like I've been promising a restock and I haven't restocked on lashes. I'm so busy and money is going so many places. I'm like, oh, you know, it, it does become really stressful, but it's just like, there's no rush.

[00:19:49] Lexi: I have to be patient with myself and that's what we're, we're in a society where everything is like, you gotta be so quick to post on social media that you're doing this and that you're getting this accomplished and everything like that. But it's like people post their accomplishments, not their failures.

[00:20:03] Lexi: So we have to stop comparing our paths and you know, our accomplishments and our, you know, our failures to other people's. I had to realize like, stop putting so much pressure on yourself. Like I'm doing it. No one else is doing it. So if I have to wait for a while to do a restock because I want to do it correctly.

[00:20:18] Lexi: I don't want to have, you know, asset and then that's what it's going to do. That's what I'm going to be so as mental health, like right now, I just feel like any toxicity, any negative things, get away from me because when you're in a negative state of mind and a toxic to state of mind, even if it's just not about finances, but just in life, you don't want to do anything you spend when you're not supposed to spend, or you, your money goes other places where it's not supposed to, or you get into a mindset where it's like, this is not for me.

[00:20:49] Lexi: You're constantly in a cycle where it's like, then you could have got farther. If you didn't constantly keep going in a circle, playing with your mind. So your mind, your peace of mind is literally the strongest and most important thing when it comes down to life, period, especially in a business because you have to be disciplined.

[00:21:07] Lexi: So I work on discipline like all year. That's my thing. So fitness is helping me with discipline, eating right. Just little things with discipline. It helps me because in business, you have to be disciplined. That is the difference between failure, because you can have the ideas and you can have the money and you can have this, but if you're not disciplined enough to do what you need to do and do the little things that other people aren't willing to do, you will fail.

[00:21:32] Lexi: So, I just feel like being in that clear head space and taking breaks and taking time out to actually enjoy life in doubt, don't just make everything about business. It does, it does help because that clear mind actually helps with creative influences and creative flows and juices and things like that.

[00:21:51] Lexi: So, meditating. I stretch every, every morning I drink black coffee and I stretch and meditate for at least 20 minutes. Before I look at my phone before I do anything, I set the tone for my day. I think that it's very important for everybody to do if, even if you're waking up 20 or 30 minutes earlier before you go to work or anything like that, because it just, it just makes it, it makes a difference. So.

[00:22:15] Jasmine St John: Yes on that. Like I been, I can completely relate to all that you're saying, because so many things. One tapping into, you know, if internally you're not. You know, working towards again, your higher self and that doesn't look like everyone else. It doesn't look quote unquote purpose. It just looks intentional.

[00:22:36] Jasmine St John: It just looks like you said discipline. If you're not kind of just like cultivating that everything else is kinda gonna fall to the wayside. Like once you start, you know, catering to your mind, your body, and soul everything else really just does come, like flowing and I have a whole episode about routines.

[00:22:55] Jasmine St John: Routines really changed my life. Like you said in the morning, if I don't do my yoga, like I'm not looking at my phone, I'm actually trying to figure out how to get like an alarm. That's not my phone anymore. But like as soon as my alarm goes off doing my yoga and I cannot start my day without it because you feel different.

[00:23:13] Jasmine St John: You feel weird. But like you said, setting those intentions for how you want and desire the day to be it's, it's a game changer. Like if you're just getting up, going in a rush, your mind, your body's literally, you're going to be, fast-paced going in a rush. But if you're taking an additional 20 minutes of the day is it's not going to kill you, an hour is not even going to give you a 20 minutes of, like you said, just doing anything. That'll kind of ground yourself and then going out into the world, can't nobody really stress you out. If they quote, unquote stress you out, it's like, you understand that it's just, it's temporary. You, like you said, you're thinking of better ways to kind of solve the problem, find the solution and you continue to keep on pushing.

[00:23:59] Jasmine St John: So I really love that you said that because I feel like I say this so much on my podcast and I know certain people like are just like, I don't have time for that. It's like, you, like, you can't not have time to set intentions because at that point, the rest of the 24 hours, ain't going to be good. So.

[00:24:17] Jasmine St John: You know, I was for sure on that mindset too, like, okay an extra 10 minutes, 15 minutes of sleep would really make a difference, but no it won't do you getting up, like you getting up starting your day. That is what that's, what makes the difference.

[00:24:33] Lexi: When I go back to doing meditation, I think lists are good. Like creating a list. I have a gratitude journal, but I also have like a regular journal where I put into this is what I'm going to do for the next day and me being able to check off the things that I'm doing, shows that I'm productive. It also shows accountability like, dang, I ain't get to check this off.

[00:24:55] Lexi: Dang like, or when you decide to sleep in and you realize you have a checklist from yesterday and you realize you did absolutely nothing, it, it literally shows you like you could have did this. There's no reason why you couldn't do this. That accountability does make a huge difference. Having things in your mind, we tend to forget, we have a lot of things going on and just seeing it clear if you have a board or a journal, have things on my phone for like just being organized, it creates an organizing mind in your head.

[00:25:26] Lexi: Well organize mindset. That plays a huge role in a lot of things as well. So I would say that is also important.

[00:25:35] Lexi: Yes, heavy

[00:25:36] Jasmine St John: on planning. You know what? We're going to get like side note. We're are here. Okay. Sis like literally my journal, I like have boxes and it's like yoga, meditate, morning routine and checking it off.

[00:25:49] Jasmine St John: Even, like you said, like when you look back and it's like, dang, sus, well, why didn't you do this? It's like, not being hard on yourself and being mean, but it's just giving yourself grace. It's like, okay. So I didn't do that yesterday. I need to make sure I get back on track tomorrow or I fell off for two days, you know it's okay. Life happens. Let's get back on top of it tomorrow, instead of I used to be in the mindset of like, oh, next Monday, or I'll do it on Monday. I'll do it Sunday. It's like, no tomorrow. Why wait a couple of days, and you can do it tomorrow. So I love that. I really hope those that are listening can take that away.

[00:26:27] Jasmine St John: Just really just planning, planning will change your life. Because like I said, it's accountability. You can flip back through the couple of days and it's like, hmm. I realized like I haven't journaled. I haven't read in a long time. Let me get back to it. Like you said, our life is fast paced when you're juggling so many things.

[00:26:43] Jasmine St John: When you're traveling, when you're handling a business, handling school, all these things, of course, things are gonna, you know, kind of slip and living life in general is, you know, a little stressful. So all of those things you need to kind of hold yourself accountable. So yes, for that. All right. Well, Miss Lexi, do you have any advice for any business owners in general and or specifically makeup artists?

[00:27:10] Lexi: Slow progress is better than no progress. Another thing is for business owners, don't compare somebody else's level 12 to your level 2, don't do it. Also, be true to yourself. Think about your customers. It's not all about the money, because as fast as you can grow as fast as you can flop, and be humble because God will show you who is God.

[00:27:41] Lexi: Like I said, we all have a starting point. Understand that you're at that starting point, do not knock other people's businesses down. It's enough money in this world for everybody to be able to make money. You think about your customers in everything that you do. Customer service is what will get you farther and as for makeup artists be authentic to yourself. You don't have to do makeup like everyone else. You don't have to use high-end products like everyone else, you don't have to use cheap products like everyone else. It's too much.

[00:28:12] Lexi: God made you unique for a reason and how somebody else may do makeup and have thousands and thousands of followers is probably not how somebody that likes their face natural and things like that would like their face. So be authentic to yourself and your true customers will come to you. Another thing is at, oh, it's a lot of it's a lot of money in this world it's so much money.

[00:28:37] Lexi: Everybody can make money. So don't ever think that you supporting another business will take from. Not at all. I never think of damn, if I support another makeup artist, that's taking away from me. Not at all because you are you. I am me. So what I can do and how I do it, you can't do it like me and that's how I see.

[00:28:58] Lexi: So if something. Example, someone's in Charlotte and I'm in Tallahassee at the time, or I'm in Charlotte and they're in Tallahassee at the time. I see a makeup artist that is great there, there is no reason why, or if I'm not available, there's no reason why I can't throw it. You know, throw another makeup artist, their way.

[00:29:16] Lexi: It's not taking away from my business at all. So I feel like we are all, able to benefit off of each other. What you give is what you receive. So I just, I just feel like, like I said, just be authentic to yourself, put God first, take, take care of your customers. Stay humble and there is no, and there's just no way that you won't fail.

[00:29:45] Lexi: There's no way you won't fail and like I said, sometimes it takes people five years. Sometimes it may take people two years. It doesn't matter as long as you get to your goal. That's all that matters cause everybody's timestamp on this earth is so different. It's if you don't know, so somebody may have 70 years to live and that's why they needed to get there quicker.

[00:30:04] Lexi: You do not know your path, so don't rush it. Yeah. Cause don't oh, cause you'll ask for something that you're not ready for and that's why some people fail. So just that.

[00:30:16] Jasmine St John: Intuition, the Pisces is like glowing from you. Like in my head. I'm like, you sure you don't want to be, a counselor.

[00:30:24] Jasmine St John: Oh my gosh. Okay. This was amazing. Is there anything that we can look out for within your business that you don't mind discussing?

[00:30:35] Lexi: Oh, I have so many new projects. I have no idea. But a lot, I think I'm going to kind of switch up things. I was kind of afraid to switch up things for a little minute. I went to sell hair for a long time, but I feel like the hair business is kind of a lot right now and that's not my passion. I'm not saying that you can't sell hair because a lot of people sell hair, that's just really not my passion. I do my own hair. Yeah, but it's just like, so I'm kind of more going into self care and what I love. So I'm kind of switching up things. Of course, I still be selling lashes and doing makeup, but like I said, the skincare line and things like that, I'm kind of pushing towards because that's just more of me rather than trying to see what everybody else wants. I feel like I will attract the right customers in my way, and it can allow me to be a little bit more creative that way. So yeah, y'all look out for that. There's going to be little knickknacks and little tips and tricks and classes coming up too. So y'all stay tuned and y'all go follow, please.

[00:31:31] Jasmine St John: I love that for you, that was the next thing I was going to say. You can go ahead and plug your handles. I'm going to also put them in the show notes. When I post on Instagram, I'll tag you as well, but you can say it for those that are more audio.

[00:31:43] Lexi: So y'all can follow me on Instagram at slayyedbylexx. My personal page is actually so_sexxylexxy. I'm very active on that page. Just to keep my life more separate. I also have a YouTube channel livin life with lexx. That I'm actually starting to be more active on there. So there's a couple of videos on there, but that is going to kind of be all over the place with makeup and hair and cooking and family it's literally living life with me. So nothing is off the table on that channel. Snapchat, I'm not really active on Snapchat like that, but I'm getting back active on Snapchat and that is at Lexi_loveme.

[00:32:40] Jasmine St John: Thank you love. You have so much light about you. Keep it going, keep pushing and don't let anyone dim that light because you are that girl!

[00:32:53] Jasmine St John: Alrighty, y'all. Oh my God. That was the finale of this series. I'm so, so, so, so grateful for all of the entrepreneurs that took their time out to talk to me, to talk to you guys and, you know, spread their knowledge and, you know, I'm so excited for next week to get back to the regular schedule program. I really love you guys really hope all is well.

[00:33:22] Jasmine St John: Can't wait to talk to you guys. Of course, it's time for the quote of the week. So this quote is from like the wealth profile on Instagram. I feel like I've seen, I've heard the saying elsewhere. So I don't know who to give its credit to, but you know, whoever you are, if this is from you.

[00:33:42] Jasmine St John: So the quote says, once you realize the power of your tongue, you won't say just anything. When you realize the power of your thoughts, you won't entertain just anything. And once you realize the power of your presence, you won't be just anything. So I'm gonna leave you out on that note because you guys know I have time to rant next week. Thank you guys again to all my beautiful entrepreneurs.
