Exploring Life & Business with Ora Lockett of THE GR8FULL COMPANY

Today we’d like to introduce you to Ora Lockett.

Hi Ora, can you start by introducing yourself? We’d love to learn more about how you got to where you are today?
In 2019, I was pretty much exhausted by my extreme hair loss. My constant visits to the hairdresser made me even more frustrated. Therefore, with my background being in the mental health field. I decided to explore and research natural alternatives that would help to aid in my hair growth. To my surprise, I embarked on a concept known as RICE WATER! I learned how the Yao women, a culture who come from Huangluo Yao Village in China grew their hair to record lengths by this time, I was willing to give anything a try. Much to my astonishment, the product worked and I was able to grow my hair from shoulder length to mid-length within a couple of months. Needless to say, I was sold and as I shared this experience with family and friends, they too were seeing amazing results. I knew plants were essential in maintaining optimal health and beauty. Thus 26 products were formed and I haven’t look back!

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
Perhaps the biggest struggle was when the world stops in March 2020. At this time, many businesses had to pivot including ours. We went from constantly going to various shows/events to coming to a complete stop and our business took a hit. Needless to say, we were able to stay afloat due to our online presence, such as social media and word of mouth. I was also awarded a grant which helped out a great deal and led to another business called the BUILD GR8NESS NETWORK. The build gr8ness network is a site dedicated to helping businesses find funding for their business. So what seemed like a challenge in the beginning turned out to be a blessing in the end!

In terms of your work and the industry, what are some of the changes you are expecting to see over the next five to ten years?
As mentioned, I believe that society is heading towards a new trend of more health-conscious individuals. For instance, take a look at the current climate and how it affects advertisement. Many of today’s commercials are becoming more and more health-conscious. As for THE GR8FULL COMPANY in 5-10 years, I’d like to say that we had something to do with that. Our plans are to continue to make quality all-natural products but on a bigger scale. We look forward to growth and serving our communities.
