Exploring Life & Business with MarKeda Gray of Allure Body Essentials

Today we’d like to introduce you to MarKeda Gray. 

Hi MarKeda, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
When I had my daughter 12 years ago. She was diagnosed with eczema. For many years I struggled to find a healthier alternative to use on her outside of the steroids that were prescribed to her. I started mixing ingredients and stumbled upon a mixture that actually worked. I shared the cream with friends and family as well. Allure Body Essentials was born. 

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back, would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
Entrepreneurship has been a rough journey. There are many ups and downs on the way to success. One of my biggest struggles has been staying consistent. When things are not looking so good, I tend to shut down and kinda put things on the back burner. However, I have put that mindset to the side, and I am more focused than ever. Allure Body Essentials will be successful and a household name. 

We’ve been impressed with Allure Body Essentials, but for folks who might not be as familiar, what can you share with them about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
My company specializes in natural skincare products they are free of harsh chemicals. They provide nourishment and promote healing. All products are safe to use on all skin types. 

Is there anyone you’d like to thank or give credit to?
I have participated in Spring GR. They really helped me get down to the basics of my business to figure out what exactly works for me.
