She describes herself as a person that loves Fashion and anything that signifies beauty in its real sense. She added that she also has zero tolerance for lies and appreciates hard work.
Florence started her business in 2018 after continuous encouragement by her family and friends to take her top make up talents to the next level. Initially, sourcing for referrals and clients was a major challenge considering that Make Up Artistry is a highly competitive and saturated profession. She advices any new MUAs to focus on their passion, enhance their skills and carve a niche for themselves. With the passing of time, Florence began to get recommendations and managed to build a customer base mostly consisting of brides-to-be. After breaking into the industry proper and finding solid footing, she began to expand. She did point out that she is definitely not comfortable at her current business position because she has a vision where Floxxy Ben’s Signature will grow into a well-known franchise. She works towards this goal every single day.
Florence runs her business with a huge emphasis on building relationships with clients. For her, even if a potential client does not end up patronizing her at that point, building a relationship with the person will ensure that her brand will always be in contention whenever said potential client needs a similar service again. In the case of difficult clients, Florence told us that she enhanced her people skills to actively listen to complaints while simultaneously devising ways of resolving issues. These must be done without affecting her business standards or going against her morals. She also sees Floxxy Ben’s Signature as being unique vs other MUA brands because of the quality of service and products provided.
We asked Florence what her opinion was regarding Nigeria as a conducive business environment and she was less than impressed with the current state of things. For her, the rampant economic instability has been a challenge for growth and development of SMEs as a whole. She, however, does encourage people to be tenacious in their effort and to keep upgrading their skills. For her, that tenacity will sustain you as an entrepreneur and keep the energy burning during challenging times.
As a woman in business in Nigeria, Florence said she has not faced issues due to patriarchy in business because the make up world is heavily female dominated and there is hardly any need to interact with the male population as a whole.
That concludes the details of our sit down with Florence. We appreciate the time given for this. All the best, Florence!
