Doing research in preparing for a presentation I'll deliver to small business owners (hair salons) in the black community I'd discover an interesting fact. Did you know the common black garden ant lives to 15 years and the colony queen can live 30 !!

What a great story! The first time you ragged on SOH with you language was seriously bad. Like a light switch you went from a crazy lady to a sophisticated one in seconds. I scratched my head trying to figure you out. After the stories of you family and you upbringing the sun light starting shining through. Your parents did a great job and seem you built on it ever since.
You do rock! Go Keyanna go!

Key: congrats on your successful presentation & solid vision.
When I used to present on business issues I would ask “What’s the #1 objective of a well run business?” Answers were usually profit, customer service, quality......

Correct answer: survival

Key ... I always knew you were one smart, dynamic woman. I am impressed and completely understand your interest in your field. You go, girl!
.... and your lead-in works!

I look at it like profit, customer service, differentiation, innovation, paying taxes.... are all prerequisites to survival.

Business tend to think too short term. Making a large profit by ripping off customers is a great example of short term strategy.

Very nice! I have no connection to that industry beyond my bimonthly or so basic haircut, but you made me want to learn more. I guess there's Art in pretty much everything, and that is the key to your passion. The stuff you sell, which drives your margins up, is also what makes the results you get possible.

Onward and upward, Key...we'll all be able to say we knew you before you got rich and famous :).

I bet it seems like 100 dog years.
It’s got to be a boring existence.

If you’re researching for a presentation to salon owners and you came across info like that, I’d be real interested in knowing what kind of salon services your company provides! 😂

Good timing, keyanna. I am trying to shorten the life span of a thousand ant critters in my house and your telling me stuff like that!

A bit of valuable and incredible trivia! Love it!

If they get into my house, their life expectancy declines sharply.

I gotta ask: is this apart of your presentation?
Didn’t know that little fact!

I’m glad you said this. I was trying to figure out what black salon owners and black ants had in common. I came up with “black” which I was pretty sure was the wrong way to go. Lol
