Evolving Beauty--The Book | The Tour | The Series By PT
I am still floating on air from last Tuesday's release of my debut book, "Evolving Beauty--The Business of Beauty in A NEW AGE." This book is the culmination of over a decade of beauty experience segmented by insider strategies of smart/modern marketing and communication, coupled with a digital overlay. Tactics to navigate A NEW AGE OF BEAUTY--an era in history like never before. Digital Beauty (robust E-Tailers & Social Media) the Multi-Culturally explosive landscape and the Beauty Breakthrough Theorem, a proprietary algorithm designed as a decision making tool in A NEW AGE OF BEAUTY.
But what made me most happy was being able to look into the eyes of passionate Entrepreneurs and ambitious Intrepreneurs on an authentic, soul level. The intention of this book is being realized. I'm able to help small businesses become big business and big businesses become legacies. I'm connecting with people on a LIFE + LEGACY level, bigger than I ever dreamed.
Clearly I was passionate about something. And the audience was engaged. LOL

The outreach of love and support shared for this book has been mind-blowing. I am so grateful for it all the love. First, Lisa Price Founder of Carol's Daughter, a former employer and colleague was gracious enough to write the foreword. Then, some of the best-in-the-business beauty influencers shared pre-praise for the book. Trail Blazers like @JodiePatterson, Co-Founder of DooBop and Founder of Georgia Beauty Products, @AfroBella, the God-Mother of Brown Blogging & Founder of Afrobella.com, @AngelaBLogan, FilmMaker, Digital Strategist for Uptown Brands and @LipsticksnCurls,@SumetraReed and @NaturallyTash all shared their love for "my book" - awe inspiring. I was honored to partner with some amazing brands: Curls Understood (the official tour blogger and subscription box), Sheen Magazine (official print media partner), Strength of Nature (International Hair Company).
Last week, I was in Detroit for the first stop on the 3-City Book Tour (see 2016 Tour Schedule on this site). The event was hosted by Janae Mason, a Beauty Influencer and Vlogger known as @Nae2Curly, held at House of Pure Vin, a new eclectic and chic wine shop, Co-Owned by Regina Gaines. A fellow AUC Alumni. I was also supported by another AUC brother, DeRone Buffington, Community Activist in Detroit. The guests were treated to a tasting journey by Master Sommelier, Claudia Tyagi (1 of only 23 in the US). I sold over 50 books in the first three days, an impressive start. I've garnered some meritorious media, but more importantly I've been able to connect and engage with women in the beauty industry. The ability to speak with them about their pains and progress, their passions and goals, it's priceless. The entrepreneurial paths are inspiring. The conversations, authentic. The expression in their eyes, ambition and dedication--ridiculous goodness. I haven't had this type of interaction with others so quickly and deeply since...well never.
And so, I am over-the-moon happy about the body of work I created and thrilled my intention for the book is being received as intended and then some. I want to help small brands become big brands, and big brands become legacy brands. As much as the intention is aligned, I am also grateful for the unexpected. The surprise ah-ha moments and the lessons discovered while speaking with beauty brand owners and beauty influencers. It's a deeper and more powerful connection with people than I ever imagined.
With this discovery, our next tour stop is May 2nd at BarTaco in Atlanta, Ga at 6pm. We're excited to present a twist in the tour format with a panel discussion. Some of the best in the business share-- BEAUTY IN A NEW AGE. We're looking forward to the start of our Evolving Beauty Series in Atlanta.
