Today we’d like to introduce you to Dajah Veney.
Hi Dajah, can you start by introducing yourself? We’d love to learn more about how you got to where you are today?
I taught myself how to do nails when I was 15. I was practicing on myself for two years just doing my nails and posting on Instagram and that’s where I gained a lot of support from in the beginning of my career and til this present day. Shortly after, I turned 18 and started working at a suite building and from 18 – me now being at the age of 21 years old, I have worked in four nail salons. I have a lot of experience from working with different races and the experience of being in salons with busy clientele. I was even working at an ALL MEN DOMINICAN BARBERSHOP. And working there, I was doing alot of men pedicures. I’m very versatile with business so I was braiding hair also from time to time.
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
No, it’s still not a smooth road. You just have to be passionate and professional about your business and that’s what I focus on. Because I’ve had bad clients before, but I never let that dictate my future with nails. Restocking on nail supplies can be a struggle itself because nail supplies are expensive so I’ll say you just have to always stay prepared and stay focus.
As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about what you do?
I am a Nail Tech and I specialize in Acrylic Fullsets and Pedicures. My business name is NailsbyDajah. I have been doing nails for six years now and I’ve worked in four different nail salons throughout my career of doing nails. I am extremely passionate about my business. I enjoy doing nails and I’m proud to see how Big my Business grew. I started with 0 followers on Instagram and only me investing in my nail business. I had a job that was only paying $100 a week so I really put my all into nails and it all worked out in the end.
What quality or characteristic do you feel is most important to your success?
I feel as though being Ambitious and Patient is the two most important characteristics you need throughout life and in business. Because without you being motivated or having ambition about your business or just within yourself, you will never be successful. You must be able to push yourself to work harder and stay determined and focused.
