Nantucket Chamber Of Commerce Interview For Black History Month
I had the chance to be interviewed by Nantucket Chamber Of Commerce and here goes.
In honor of Black History Month, we're spotlighting #ACKChamber Black-Owned Businesses! We asked Romania from @handinhomeack a few questions, here are her answers!
❓ How would you describe your business or services?
✨ I provide a premier luxury at-home spa service to people that are willing to pay for quality and convenience. My services are therapy to some while a necessity to happiness for others.
❓ Who is the most influential black person throughout history in your life and why?
✨ I wouldn’t say just one individual, I have been influenced by numerous black women throughout my life, from my grandmother, my aunties, teachers, social media influencers, and multi-millionaire podcasters whom I have never met but have introduced me to therapy, business and so much more. Black women are very much undervalued and under looked but we are such nurturing, warm, resilient, and brilliant creatures. Let me just put that out there for “US” to hear.
❓ Why do you think it's important to support other black-owned businesses?
✨ Black women are the cornerstones and pillars of society, we do 2-3 jobs and most times jobs that men were made for. WE take care of the babies and we take care of your houses and your parents when they get old. Supporting a black business is essential because a lot of us women and black women are scared of the unknown. I remember the excitement I used to hear in my client’s voice when I spoke about starting my business endeavors and it pushed me. I dreamt about what it would be like, now I’m living my dreams. We all need support, and words of advice. I would love that for my people and for women of every race and creed.
