Today we’d like to introduce you to Ashlee Miller.
Ashlee, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
Born and raised in Arizona, Ashlee Miller has been in the beauty makeup industry for 14 years. She loves makeup and marketing. With her entrepreneurial spirit, she launched Ashlee Miller Artistry in 2010. After experiencing hardship, she made the leap and opened up a bridal boutiques and salon in early 2016. January of 2108, Ashlee was able to fulfill a lifelong dream of starting her own makeup line called, “Ashlee Miller”.
She calls herself a Mompreneur, she is a proud single mommy of 3 amazing little boys who absolutely rock her work, when she is not “ Mommin”, she fills her spare time with her passion in the world of beauty and makeup.
This extroverted-introvert is an avid member of the community. She expressed combining her two passions together is extremely rewarding and fills her cup.
When she is not working, she loves a getaway with her boys to some beach somewhere and entertaining her friends with her hidden hula hoop skills.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
My life… has been quit the journey. I have experienced so much heartache and disappointment. There were moments I thought this can’t be real life. I fought and persevered through it all. I became a mother at 23, I adopted my oldest Kameron by the time I was 25. I’ve had a series of failed relationships, failed businesses. Moments of wanting to throw my hands in the air and give up.
Then there was that moment that I realized I could take all my negative energy and turn it into a guiding light not just for myself but for all that surround me. I want to inspire, educate and empower my children, my friends, family, piers, even complete strangers. I want to leave a legacy for my boys!
Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Ashlee Miller Artistry – what should we know?
Ashlee Miller Artistry began in 2010 as a single makeup artist taking any gig/job I could get. I specialized in weddings and slowly began to build my reputation in the wedding industry. Then, Ashlee met Amber.
Ashlee Miller & Amber Lane started their love affair for the beauty industry together in 2012. These two ladies had a strong passion and knew they couldn’t accomplish this single-handedly. They wanted to create an beauty empire. May of 2016, they opened a small bridal boutique and have been rapidly growing since. They now have a talented team of artist and stylist working side by side with them. Something Beautiful Bridal Boutique and Salon offers a variety of services, gel nails, spray tanning, full service cut & color, makeup, beauty classes, hair extensions, on site bridal services.
I believe the biggest accomplishment is having a positive reputation in the wedding industry for almost a decade. Launching my very own cosmetic line and having the passion I have for my business that is unparalleled, I couldn’t imagine my life without art.
Is there a characteristic or quality that you feel is essential to success?
I truly believe that my success is based solely from the passion I have to inspire, educate and empower those around me.
