How I am Living Fearlessly: My name is Princess Dorley, I am originally from Monrovia, Liberia but grew up in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I am now residing in Laurel, Maryland and I am loving it. Living in the DMV (Washington DC, Maryland, Virginia) area and away from my family has taught me so much about myself. I have become more independent, self-reliant and a problem solver.
About a year ago, I developed the idea to start my own eyelash extension company. Some may ask, why eyelashes? My love for eyelashes began during my junior year of high school when my friend at the time introduced me to individual lash extension installation. Looking in the mirror for the first time after I received my first lash installation, I was amazed! It accentuated my already wide and bold eyes and made me look beautiful, even without adding makeup. It was then I discovered my love for eyelash extensions.
Fast forward to 2016, I’d become an expert in installing lash extensions on myself, friends and family and I loved it. While sitting in my room conversing with my roommate, I suggested to her the idea of starting my own eyelash company. Being aware of how much of a lash fanatic I am, she immediately began to encourage the idea. The idea of starting my own eyelash company made me overly joyous. For almost a month, I started to strategize on what kind of eyelashes I wanted, photo shoots, websites, sales opportunities and registering the business. I even came up with a business name “NubiLash”. I noted all my great ideas and saved it onto my laptop.
Name (NubiLash) was inspired by the Sudanese Tribe, Nubia. I decided on this because of my love and admiration for the people of Nubia and their captivating beauty and strength.
Then a month pass, then two months passed, three months and I had done nothing to execute this great business venture. I had not even registered the business. Friends and family began to acquire about the status of “NubiLash” and all I could say was I’m working on it. Fear of the unknown was preventing me from moving forward and accomplishing my dream. I had such great ideas and passion for NubiLash but the fear of failure was hindering me.
About five months later I was meditating and praying about my life and while praying I received a revelation. I began to hear “Just Do It!! don’t worry about what if, what could happen or what didn’t happen. Just Do It!!” At this point, I felt free of my fears and worries and I did just as was reviled to me.
In June of 2016, I registered NubiLash LLC, located an eyelash extension manufacturer, developed a logo, eyelash designs, packaging ideas and all that is necessary when creating a company. Today NubiLash is an independent lash company, we have a website, www.nubilash.com, filled with different lash designs, photos, and information.
Today the idea of starting my own lash company has become a reality, I can see and hold my lashes in my hands and I must say that is an amazing feeling. All of this was possible because I made the decision to live FEARLESSLY!
I want to live out my biggest, most unrealistic and outrageous dreams. I am motivated to succeed because I want to help the family members who are currently residing in Liberia at a large skill. I want to make a difference in the world and be the change I want to see. I have decided to live FEARLESSLY and not allow fear to prevent me from accomplishing my dreams.
