Skin Bar VII is the dream brought to life by Kim Jones. The business will be part of Detroit’s historic Avenue of Fashions business district near W Seven Mile Rd and Livernois Ave. Kim is a specialist for bringing the best out of skin care. For years Jones has worked in salons and even barbershops providing her dynamic service. Recently Kim was rewarded with a Motor City Match grant to build out her space. This is her story and vision for Skin Bar VII.
This is my hood, my hood is going to love me, the neighborhood is going to love me, a lot of people in this neighborhood has seen me grow up here, so when you see someone grow up in the younger years, you see them ride a bike down the street, and then they build a business and it’s a successful business, you are drawn to support them, so I got overwhelming support from the neighborhood already before me when I reopened.
My name is Seven and I am the owner of Skin Bar VII
Skin Bar VII is Detroit premier skin care facility. We are at 18951 Livernois between 7 mile and clear reader ,skin care is overall helping with this, I have been into skin care my entire life, I have been doing…,I have over 18 years’ experience in this industry and its one of the key to life very, very much neglected
The motor city match process was serious, it was really really serious but it made a better professional, a better business woman and it made a better leader it really captured what I did, it solidified my business and took it to the professional level because things that you dint think was important are very intricate in the success of your business, so make sure once you get up there, you stay up there.
“Alright, what would you say to somebody watching this right now and has a business and is thinking about motor city match, what advice do you have?”
What I would say to them for one is, follow directions, every single solitary thing that they ask for or application you need to provide it and don’t go scimpy on it, take your time, you need a thorough business plan, you need those financials, you need to do your research, so don’t get discouraged by all the paper work because all the paperwork is very much necessary not just to win from motor city match but overall make you a better business person and to make sure that your business is able to withstand the economy and grow.
Detroit is all good, you know am the expert, I am the guru and they come to me for advice aah I have the results driven, practice and they are happy with the results so I get a lot of love from Detroit. I preferred Motor City Match because I knew that I could win, I was determined to… I was determined to win, because I had a dream, I had a goal and I had a vision and I wanted to do whatever it took if they were to make that happen. I chose this location because this where I grew up back, I grew a couple of streets over, I went to Hamilton Elementary school, I went to Mumford High school. This is home for me , I wanted to contribute to the whole world of bringing me to my community and bringing a business like myself brings back, brings back class, it brings a healthy career for this neighborhood and I have tons of great things I want to bring to this community.
