The Hype Magazine recently sat down to pull back the veil on Bella Rose’s many accomplishments as a Black woman, and find out what’s behind her success journey:
How has the Entrepreneur journey been so far?
Bella Rose: My entrepreneur journey has been interesting and surprising, I have enjoyed most of it.
What have been some obstacles as a business owner?
Bella Rose: There are new obstacles daily as a business owner, but the biggest obstacle is to get people to recognize that our brand has elevated and there are protocols to follow.
What is it about running a business that brings you the most joy?
Bella Rose: I get the most joy running my business when I see the growth that I have only dreamed of. It’s really a dream come true.
Please tell us about your products?
Bella Rose: Bella Rose Passion Products are all-natural and known to heal dry skin, eczema, and more skin irritations. We noticed a difference in our skin using our mixture of butters and oils that help increase elasticity and also gave our skin a healthy glow.
What type of feedback do you receive from clients?
Bella Rose: We enjoy the customers posting their results, and reviews on social media but the best feedback is when we see one of our supporters and they tell us how much our products have helped them or someone they purchased it for in a major way. Seeing the results blows my mind all the time.
You are a New Jersey native, what brought you to Atlanta?
Bella Rose: We moved to Atlanta because I was visiting for an event while I was 5 months pregnant. We stayed with a friend and I was so comfortable. I went home and told my husband we’re moving to Atlanta and he agreed so when our baby was 2 months old we relocated with nothing but the money in our bank account.
Bella Rose Passion Cosmetics has been featured on Starz’s hit TV show Power, The Real House Wives of Atlanta, and more. How did these amazing opportunities come about?
Bella Rose: I had a publicist that helped get our products featured with a few of The Housewives, and Love & Hip Hop cast but I would also research certain people and look for their contact information and send emails.
I would also meet so many actresses at events and they would love the products and post on their social media about the results.
That is what caught the attention of the Steve Harvey producers and they requested us to have an entire segment on the show.
Let’s chat about Walmart and Target.com. Congratulations on this epic accomplishment of having your products in their stores. What can consumers expect to see from Bella Rose Passion?
Bella Rose: Bella Rose Passion is just getting started with retail, I did a vision board to map my goals and take my time for the challenge.
We have been submitting with Target for 3 years and when we finally got the acceptance, it was unbelievable.
We are focusing on getting more SKUs into retail and also pursuing getting into stores around the world.
Please tell us about your partnership with the Brain Aneurysm Foundation?
Bella Rose: We partnered with Brain Aneurysm of Atlanta in Emory because my mother had a brain aneurysm in 2013. We almost lost her and I wanted to educate myself more about aneurysms so I can know how to care for her and possibly myself if anything was to happen.
When I contacted the Atlanta Brain Aneurysm and told them my story they were so supportive and offered me so much education. I was able to share that education with others and also honor my mother for becoming a survivor.
What else are you currently working on?
Bella Rose: I am currently only focused on getting our products into as many Target stores as possible.
Any Bella Rose Passion Spring time recommendations, or sales you would like to share with us?
Bella Rose: We recommend our Lemon Turmeric collection for the spring and summer months as our skin is going to be in the sun a lot more.
Our ingredients assist and aid with sunburn and has healthy antioxidants that the skin needs.
Also, please hit your Target.com app and show your support by searching Bella Rose Passion.
What advice would you have for aspiring entrepreneurs?
Bella Rose: I advise aspiring entrepreneurs to have patience and a marketing budget.
