She Has a Story for Everything
Next, in her spare time, she began to brainstorm ideas for her own products. How could she invent something even better than the hair and skincare products that she was currently selling? She kept working and trying to figure out how to make a better shampoo. Not long after, she met a man. Soon, they were married and she had another daughter. With a growing family and more financial resources, they moved to Denver, Colorado. Now that she was in a new town, she reinvented herself.

Her new husband helped. He had a knack for advertising and promotion, and soon the two of them had their own line of hair products. After that, she hit the streets and was no longer selling just a product. She was selling something she had put her heart and soul into.

It was something that was working and personally helping her. Soon, she was teaching the other women in the community how to groom and style their own hair. She taught them what to avoid and saved many from the harsh chemicals that resulted in the hair loss and pain that had plagued them.

She held down the fort at home so that Sarah and her husband could travel around the southeastern US to find places to expand further. A few years later, the family relocated to Pittsburgh.
There, they opened a beauty parlor and salon, and a college to train new team members. The couple also created a new salon in Indianapolis and another in New York City. They began building or acquiring houses, factories, salons, labs, and schools to train a large group of salespeople. She was leading a movement. By this time, her company employed thousands of women as sales agents. And they created jobs for over 20, women.
