Today we’d like to introduce you to Briona Adams & Bryson Pleasant.
It’s an honor to speak with you today. Why don’t you give us some details about you and your story. How did you get to where you are today?
I am Briona Adams, CEO & Founder of Impact Creatively Design Co and the Co-CEO & Founder of Happy Nugget Hair Care alongside my 6-month old son, Bryson Pleasant. My story is very simple, I found out I was pregnant in December 2019 and was instantly excited. As a serial entrepreneur my business had always been my baby and now I was having an actual baby! As I went through my pregnancy, I was like most first time moms. I wanted to pick out the right things in my registry and have the right products for my baby. I strolled the lines of Target, Walmart, and many other stores looking for hair care products for my son. As a Black woman it was important to me that we took care of his hair and skin. After all those trips and research I realized something, there aren’t many all natural hair products out there for young Black babies that contained healthy ingredients. So my mission began, and after quite a bit of research, testing, and developing Happy Nugget was born!
I’m sure your success has not come easily. What challenges have you had to overcome along the way?
In developing Happy Nugget there were a TON of challenges! We had to go through trials and tests of products, researching each ingredient and it’s safety for children, I went through company name challenges, it was ALOT to say the least. For me the challenges still come, but in order to overcome any challenge I had a mission in mind to see this entire business through. My son Bryson (6mo) serves as my inspiration. To know that I am building him something that can support each of his dreams and hopes is a constant motivation to keep going no matter how hard it gets.
Let’s talk about the work you do. What do you specialize in and why should someone work with you over the competition?
Our products are all natural hair care products designed to not only clean and condition their hair and scalp, but to promote healthy long term hair with Black children in mind. Each product is designed as a very potent and rich formula so a little goes a long way! By specifically choosing a pump bottle we make it easy to make it through the hair shampooing, conditioning, and styling process. We offer 3 shampoo & conditioner sets (Newborn Nugget, Toddler Nugget, and Curly Nugget), as well as the Happy Nugget Styling Spray and Happy Nugget Detangle Spray. Every recipe includes all natural ingredients that are sulfate, paraben, and SLS free to ensure they will nourish and condition children’s hair while also throughly cleaning it. I can admit I use the Happy Nuggets products on my adult hair and I love them!
What’s your best piece of advice for readers who desire to find success in their life?
Honestly if you desire to find success in your life you have to have a goal and mission in mind. For me before my son it was to create a life that I could be self sufficient and be able to build wealth. After having my son I had an entirely new outlook on life because becoming a mom will transform you into someone you never knew you could be. My success is no longer about me, it’s about my son’s success. My goals have changed to create a life for him I never had and to inspire him to be exactly who he wants to be no holds barred! He can be anything in this world and it’s my mission to make sure that happens. That will be my success story!
Speaking of success, what does the word mean to you?
To me success means you have met a goal. It’s often an ongoing goal that may change over time, but success happens in small bite sized goals that you accomplish regularly. Sometimes success can mean making it out of bed that day, other days it’s $100K in sales, it varies and that’s okay. Success happens and I don’t want anyone to feel like they aren’t successful because of what others define it as. Your success is YOURS! Take hold of it and make it your very own.
What’s next for you?
We are super excited to launch Happy Nugget this Spring! We are in the final stages of developing our products and we cannot WAIT for our customers to receive them! We have spent over a year developing this company and to see it almost ready for the public is an amazing feeling! It’s nerves, excitement, suspense, sooo many words! 2021 will be the birth of another baby for my baby!
