Shameka Wells is a woman on a mission. Wells is the proud owner of Millennium Home Healthcare, Nikki Nicole Virgin Hair, and S&D Tax Services. With over ten years of entrepreneurship under her belt, Wells is now pursuing her real estate license to venture off into that field.
Amazingly, her work has gone unnoticed due to most of it being self funded but that is the unique thing about Wells. As a single mother of two, she believes in being independent. The go-getter is passionate about helping other women acquire a wealth mindset, because she knows one is not truly free until they are self sufficient.
She believes this is often why many women stay in abusive relationships, and having been a victim of both verbal and physical abuse, Wells strives to assist and uplift other women in similar situations. Wells plans to be completing her hair care line, Silkk Expressions by the end of the year.

Introduce yourself and profession to our readers:
My name is Jocelyn Saunders and I am a 22 year old Virginia native and just recently became a Georgia resident. I moved to California after graduating from high school to pursue my acting degree at New York Film Academy. After, graduating with a degree in Acting for Film I had the vision to create the inspirational magazine Let's Chic Chat.
What inspired your pursuits?
While attending school in California I began battling anxiety and depression. During this dark time I realized that my relationship with God wasn't as strong as it should have been. I began talking to one of my ministers at my church back in Virginia for guidance. Those talks with him changed my life! It was during that dark time that I felt so vulnerable and hungry to know God for myself. After, graduating from NYFA I became obsessed with magazines. I would literally buy one every day and read them while talking to my mom waiting for the bus. The idea came for me to create my own online magazine but instead make it more relatable to the everyday hardworking women. I feel as though society gives so much attention and focuses solely on those celebrities who have already gained a substantial amount of success and ignore those who have yet to reach that peak, but strive to daily.

Shante' Grant is the Owner of Guilty Pleasures Boutique, a women's fashion boutique based out of Augusta, Ga. Her inspiration for pursuing a business, was the lack of exclusivity in women's clothing that she's always looked for in mall boutiques and online boutiques, but could never find. Being an independent person by nature, she decided to find what she was looking for and make it accessible to other women as well! "For anyone that is looking to branch into the fashion business, my advice for you would be to thoroughly research the market, stay on top of the latest trends, and know your customer." says Shante'.
This year her business has gone through a rebranding phase, including new additions to the company that will allow Guilty Pleasures Boutique to give shoppers the experience they desire. Connect with them online by visiting www.ishopguiltypleasures.com, follow on Instagram @ishopguiltypleasures, or like their Facebook page at Guilty Pleasures Boutique to stay informed on their latest additions!
