Hidden Gems: Meet Sarah Harris of Afro Empire Company

Today we’d like to introduce you to Sarah Harris.

Hi Sarah, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
As a woman of faith, I have always kept a special place for God in my heart, no matter what my life circumstances looked like. Praying helps me get through my toughest times. This is what has kept me uplifted & motivated. Growing up, I was raised by a single mom doing all that she could to provide for our family, I was never a stranger to the struggle. As I got older, I realized how different I was from the rest of the world. Breaking free from society & bringing generational wealth into my family became one of my top priorities. My purpose in this world is to help others reach their full potential. Knowing this is the main reason why I established Afro Empire Company as an organic personal wellness and beauty business. On May 15th, 2020 I came to the conclusion that it was my time to share my gift with the world. I started by creating an online store and writing my mission statement which is to offer the best quality personal health and beauty items. I also spread awareness on loving and taking care of yourself spiritually, physically, mentally, and emotionally.

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?
Some struggles that I faced along the way included me finding and building up the strength to keep my business up and running. When I published my online store, I had a good number of orders coming in from those who supported me. After a while, my number of customers started to fade away and my website traffic went down. Many times I had felt discouraged because no one was buying products or supporting my business anymore. I felt like giving up because of that and it made me feel unworthy. I had to understand that nothing in life is going to be a smooth ride, especially in the entrepreneurship world. There are people who will watch you instead of support which made me feel weird inside. I couldn’t let the eyes of other people make me feel uncomfortable like I wasn’t capable of being successful. I began to build myself and my brand up even more and ventured out into the pop-up shop scene to get my business more known around the world.

Great, so let’s talk business. Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?

What makes you happy?
Loving myself and helping other people to succeed makes me happy. When I put myself first and make sure that I am well taken care of brings me to a certain kind of joy that I can not put into words. Self-love is like none other. Also, seeing others succeed in life brings happiness to me because I want to see people reach their goals and win in life.
