Community Highlights: Meet Lucretia O’Neal of Black Rose Rock

Today we’d like to introduce you to Lucretia O’Neal.

Hi Lucretia, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
It started in 2018, I was doing plus-size modeling, which was something I always had a love for. I needed to find some clothing for a photoshoot and was falling short on finding the perfect pieces. Then a light went off. Why don’t you open your own boutique and include the plus-size fashion you were looking for. After that, I went full force. I took a class, I researched, I traveled, all to make sure I was giving it my all. Now, three years later and through the ups and downs, we are still here.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
It has not been easy but learning a lot along the way. Managing to work and running a business has been the biggest struggle. This industry is more about people seeing you and liking you. This means social media nowadays play a huge factor but when you are a small business there is just not enough time in the day.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your business?
My team and I help women of all sizes find clothing that will help them feel beautiful on the inside and look gorgeous on the outside. We encourage women to walk into every room with their heads held high and owning it with confidence.
