As a little girl there was no beacon as to what my future would hold. I had no aspirations of being a doctor or a teacher, let alone a CEO. I did have one thing I absolutely loved though: hair.
Like most girls, I spent tons of time doing hair whether it was my own or my friends’, and I got really good at it. But being able to style hair wasn’t something I considered a talent or passion and it certainly wasn’t what I imagined myself pursuing as a career. To me, being able to style hair was just a skill I needed to get through life.
LOOKING FOR A
Fast forward to motherhood...while my husband was pursuing his hockey career, I never dreamed of owning a business. I was content following the status quo and supporting my partner, but the universe had other plans. In 2008, after a career-ending injury, our family decided to move to the Midwest and I pursued my cosmetology license. I finally acknowledged that this skill of being able to style hair was not a common thread for all women. The clients who sat in my chair needed another solution in creating the looks they were dreaming about. I had to find a way to help them.
All in the
I tapped the natural talents of my cousin, an engineer, and we worked to make my idea a reality. What I originally thought would be an attachment for a straightener, quickly grew (along with the stack of torn apart straighteners). Our garage-fitted science experiments, turned revolutionary. By adding a twist - literally - to the design of the iron, we were able to put serious curling power in the hands of women. After piecing together the prototype, lovingly called FrankenTYME, my brother Kierre jumped at the opportunity to share this product with the world and our journey through TYME began.
Courage to CEO
When you’re little, you start to develop these “I’m not ____ enough” beliefs. The older I got, these beliefs became bigger and bigger and became an anchor that held me back. I subconsciously told myself that I wasn’t smart enough. Lucky me, I was carnival-ride-sling-shot to the position of CEO...the person who I imagined is supposed to know EVERYTHING. My lack of leadership background posed a trillion hurdles that only I could jump. After years of playing the supportive role whether that be a caring wife, friend or colleague, I had to allow myself to play the role of leading actor as CEO.
In 2017, I learned to let go of heavy beliefs that anchored me to my past and started leading TYME with a different perspective. I worked to build a small team of driven individuals who value their own time. By allowing our tight-knit team to prioritize work that is important to them, we have built an environment that is genuine, conscious, and fluid. I’m proud of each of our teammates’ dedication to advancing the confidence and everyday experience of women all over the world.
My whole life, like most women, I was convinced that hair is too difficult to maintain and a chore. I wanted to throw that idea in the trash. Having a hairstyle that looks good makes me feel confident. Having that confidence is just a small contribution in becoming the author of my life. I created the TYME Iron and the entire TYME product line to help women understand that hair CAN be effortless, long-lasting, and bring a new level of confidence to their everyday.
I want you to start being the author of your life. It may sound like a complex idea, but can be a simple change. By making little decisions that put yourself first, like taking 5 minutes for yourself in the morning while getting ready, you start to free yourself from outside expectations and open yourself to more freedom. I want that feeling of freedom for you. You are worthy.
What our customers are continually surprised with, and delighted by, is that we offer these sessions for FREE! Additionally, we pay close attention to all of our customer feedback, whether it’s in person or via social media. We want to make sure the TYME experience is one that you’re excited to share!
