Joi Tuffy is the founder of TuffyOils, which are organic hair oils who’s main intention is rapid hair growth.
Who inspired you to start the Tuffy Oils brand?
TuffyOils main inspiration is my partner, for one he gave me the motivation to even start TuffyOils, and Tuffy is his name, I wouldn’t be an entrepreneur without him. TuffyOils are organic oils who’s main intention is rapid hair growth & clear skin. I want to change the way everyone in the world hair grows, and break that stereotype that black people's hair doesn’t grow fast because I have literally been hearing that my whole life. People use TuffyOils and have told me it made them more confident, that’s another inspiration on why I’m doing this.
As a self starter, what would you say are 3 key elements to making sure you don't get overwhelmed?
To be genuine, for the past 2 years being overwhelmed feels normal. It shouldn’t be this way but when you have a product or service and it’s in high demand, getting help by one other person, it can be very overwhelming! I’m grateful for sure though. Me being overwhelmed in the beginning always leaves me self determined, more inspired and ambitious in the end.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
In 5 years, I see TuffyOils being sold in beauty supply stores and used in all 50 states, that is my goal.
Please tell us a quote that applies to your life at this time in your life.
When I first started TuffyOils, my partner quoted Ryan Allis to keep me motivated, and I will always live by this quote “ Have the end in mind and every day make sure you're working towards it”. This quote alone keeps me going daily, it reminds me on why I started Tuffyoils and why I’ll never quit!
