Daily Inspiration: Meet Daprice Daily

Today we’d like to introduce you to Daprice Daily.

Hi Daprice, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
I started my business in 2018, as far as looking for and speaking to vendors in Asia. Then I began the lengthy and costly process of personally ordering and wearing bundles, lashes, and clothes from these vendors before deciding on a few to get my inventory from.

After growing very tired of working five 12-hour shifts a week and not being able to dedicate as much time as I would have liked to be a mother, I took the plunge! I had $64 left out of my paycheck and I used That to order 8 pairs of lashes and pay for the express shipping from china.

I prayed that ANYONE would purchase them as long as I at least made that $64 back I knew that I could start my business. I posted them on my personal Facebook page, friends and family instantly began sharing them and I had my first sale for a customer in Las Vegas, Nevada! She bought all 8 pairs of lashes for $12 each and paid an additional $10 for shipping. Due to the shares, new customers began to show interest and since I had the confirmation that I should start my business I began selling eyelash strip extensions. I posted my entire catalog on Facebook and over 20 people were willing to preorder their lashes since I was Scared to get a large inventory immediately.

I fulfilled their orders and they had raving reviews, which gave me the confidence to get my first large order. I ordered over 200 pairs of eyelashes and decided to do a sale to fully launch my business. I sold EVERY PAIR for $5 individually in that one-day sale, I also charged for delivery. So I made Over $1000 in one day. That’s when I decided To fully venture off into entrepreneurship. Even with working 12 hours at an above minimum wage job I didn’t even make $300 a day, but I made over $1000 for myself from the comfort of my own home.

I researched how to legalize my business, got my LLC and other important documents, and fully opened “Primium Hair Co”. My business has evolved since then, and I rebranded to “Primium Beautique”. I also sell human hair bundles and stylish outfits. On top of that, I’ve continued my passion for braiding hair, so my business also features hair services of box braids and soft locs. Finally, I completed the package with my most recent and most successful product “Primium Hair Growth” serum that’s safe for use on people of all ages with any hair type, and each bottle features a picture of real results from using it on my own son.

Thanks to this business, I’ve made a substantial amount of money, gotten to spend irreplaceable time with my children making memories, and established business credit giving me access to things I couldn’t imagine before. there is way more in store for the “primium” brand in the near future as well!

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
The biggest struggle for my business was when Covid first hit. A lot of our inventory came from china and the shut down over there slowed the shipping down drastically and some factories even stopped production.

Thousands of dollars and over a year of testing and research seemed to have gone to waste at one point because there was no way to get my inventory.
