She gushed on Instagram: “A big moment in my life.” So… for the first time in my entire career, I decided to invest my own money in a small business and become one third of @rehabyourhair. It doesn’t feel real.
“Growing up and investing in a small business, I never thought I’d have the chance!” “I feel like I’m writing this about someone else.”
Speaking about how the exciting opportunity to become a business partner came about, Stacey added in a statement: “A long time ago I used a small business hair care product, I just loved everything about it.” Then I brought more out of it business with and realized how clever and incredible this business was.
“When I shared it on my Instagram, the founders of the company reached out to me and told me what impact it had on them and how hard they worked to get their products to market, but as a small business it is “difficult” to be seen.
“And when they are seen, it is difficult to follow orders, etc. I started chatting with them, then met them and fell in love.” “I fell in love with their hair care collection, their work ethic, their company values and ethics and their ideas for the future.”
Stacey admitted that even though she was scared, she decided to take the plunge into an industry she had never been in before.
She continued: “Of course, without the right financial support and the right audience reach, you can only go so far. Although it felt scary to me, since it’s something I’ve never done before and I obviously knew little about it, I decided to ask her if I could invest in rehab.
“And become part of the brand myself.” And see if I can build and expand Rehab with them because I just believe in it so much.
