MW: When and why did you start it?

MW: What are some of your future goals?
CeCe: I am working towards having my own beauty salon.
MW: Who and what inspires you?
CeCe: Positive people inspire me. People who love what they do and are excited about doing what needs to be done to get the job done inspire me.
MW: What do you love most about owning your own business?
