Life & Work with Timika Lewis

Today we’d like to introduce you to Timika Lewis.

Hi Timika, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
My story is my testimony. My name is Timika, and I am the Owner of Organic Silk. Being born and raised in St. Louis, MO has been a continuous journey of many experiences. There’s so much love and creation throughout my city it makes my heart smile. I have always had a passion for putting a smile on other’s faces by creating a servicing/memorable experience. I find joy in knowing I put a smile on someone’s face by enhancing their beauty/look. This passion is what creates the energy for me to get up and love what I do. No matter what industry you are in nothing happens overnight. I am always seeking more knowledge to adhere to what I already know. I have taken many classes to obtain certifications as the journey continues. Artistry is my passion and some of my clients have hair loss deficiencies such as alopecia, hair loss from cancer, etc. I take pride being able to provide services that will help my clients walk out more confident. The encouragement I will share is you got this, keep going, and this too shall pass. No matter what industry you are in, nothing happens overnight, BUT IT CAN. 

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?
Being a serial entrepreneur is not the easiest path especially when you are the owner who is undertaking new obligations and challenges daily. While in college, I was the go-to girl to enhance your beauty. From applying makeup to doing hair, I did it all, just to put smiles on their faces. After college, I was unsure about my purpose, so I entered the corporate world. There are people out there working a nine to five with creating multiple streams of income on the side. With hopes to either quit their day job or just an ongoing hustle. The fact is knowing that anything is possible if you just start. I believe in faith without works is dead. My parents instilled in me to never fear anything but God. I can hear my father saying, “don’t fear failing because of what is not in your control”. That is why, a goal of mine, try to renew my mind every day. The most impactful thing I am learning as a business owner is to be your authentic self and allowing patience to be your best friend. As a business owner, I am doing everything because it is my vision, my baby that I have birthed, so I have no choice but to take care of it. As with any new business, there is going to be obstacles and trials, but the lessons learned is what keeps the business flourishing. I am a woman that has a proclivity to see the fruits of my labor.

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
Organic Silk is about the way nature made it. Our mission is to enhance beauty while providing a holistic experience. The concept of Organic Silk is a vision from God. I began Organic Silk with the intention of it being global one day. What we do here is offer a variety of services from permanent makeup to head spa services that are coming soon. I am most proud of myself for always putting my best foot forward. I have created such a masterpiece that I am ecstatic for this business to be passed on to my legacy one day. What sets me apart from others is using all-natural, vegan, and organic based products. Everything we do is natural.

Are there any books, apps, podcasts or blogs that help you do your best?
The book I’m currently reading is The Blessed Life by Robert Morris.
