Small Business Counseling Client Spotlight: Rayshone Oliver of Weave N Luxury, LLC

Friday, September 14, 2018

Rayshone Oliver received assistance from YNDC’s Small Business Development Program for her company Weave N Luxury, LLC, an online wig and hair extension marketplace.

Rayshone has been a licensed cosmetologist since 2002 but decided to start selling wigs when her daughter was diagnosed with trichotillomania, a disorder characterized by an irresistible urge to pull out one’s own hair. Rayshone discovered firsthand the confidence and empowerment wigs can provide for regular women. Rayshone also maintains a YouTube channel #BeUtify in order to promote her business and share her knowledge and experiences with a wider audience. She had first learned of the Small Business Development Program by being involved in the community and participating in volunteer opportunities with YNDC and was able to resolve financial challenges impacting her business through one-on-one financial counseling sessions. The Small Business Development Program, funded by the Burton D. Morgan Foundation and the Ohio CDC Association, is designed to help entrepreneurs in the Mahoning Valley reach their business goals with financial counseling. Both established and aspiring business owners can access free financial counseling to assist with resolving credit issues, reaching financial goals, and preparing to seek business financing.
