Conversations with Tiara Dashield-Hughes

Today we’d like to introduce you to Tiara Dashield-Hughes.

Hi Tiara, can you start by introducing yourself? We’d love to learn more about how you got to where you are today?
Greetings everyone, My name is Tiara Dashield-Hughes I am the owner of Holistically Be L.L.C and the creator of Titi’s Goddess Bars. I was born in Salisbury, MD, and raised in Baltimore, MD. I am 32 years old and a mother. I started my business in 2020 when the pandemic first started. I have always had an interest in holistic healing and natural medicine. My son was more of a reason that I turned to home remedies.

I started my business of selling Immune boosting teas and facial masks. Things went very slow with those products. One day I thought about how certain soaps are very sensitive to my skin and how they didn’t necessarily have the moisturizing effect that I wanted. I decided to start making soaps.

I started off word of mouth in North Carolina and then started my L.L.C. I recently relocated back to Baltimore, MD, and I currently sell soaps online. My soaps are all-natural and very much beneficial.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
When the pandemic first began it was very difficult. Starting the business itself was difficult because I had issues with promoting it. Learning how to step out of my comfort zone to sell was extremely difficult as well because I had to learn how to deliver and sell the product.

I also became very discouraged at one point and that was because things started off slow but I had to learn that when doing business as far as selling it takes time. It will pay off in due time.

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
I am currently a life coach. I work with individuals who have intellectual disabilities. My job description consists of outings with my clients into different communities to have more of social life and teaching them independence.

My clients are adults.

My clients being enthused and happy makes me want to come to work. I enjoy helping my clients. I am very nurturing and caring so my job fits me perfectly. I treat people how I would like to be treated. I treat my clients like they are family because I would want someone to do the same for me.

Is there a quality that you most attribute to your success?
Motivation is the most important characteristic of my success. I feel motivation is most important because without motivation nothing will get done. You have to want it. There has to be a purpose and that purpose is what MOTIVATION is.
