“I’m excited about the whole concept,” said Mimi Madison, owner of M Suites. “It always comes to me like a dream.”
Madison has been in business for herself since the 1980s and said it took great mentors to get her where she is now.
“My mentor always said that if I like what I do, I’ll do a great job,” said Madison. “That’s what I want to be for these girls.”
Madison opened M Suites during Women’s History Month to encourage women to become self-employed and expand their clientele to include a larger space.
“I’ve rented four of the rooms, all women and each has their own unique taste that they bring to the table,” she said. “It comes into play; Everyone’s personality makes it beautiful. “
It is women who empower women by providing a blueprint for what it takes to be a successful business owner.
M Suites currently offers teeth whitening, a professional makeup artist, eyelashes, hair, and wedding planning.
“The pandemic was severe,” said Vanessa Nobles of Hair Emporium. “I’m a hair clipper, so my product comes from overseas. I had issues with the pandemic and delivery. Everyone did it. Mimi brought a lot of light. I’m proud of her. “
Each suite is also COVID friendly. Every single owner has their own room so that they can offer their customers a safe and socially distant service.
“I’m so grateful for the opportunity,” said Aaliyah Powell, who has a teeth whitening business. “I came in with no customers so you feel good. I have a daughter who can watch me start my own business now. That feels great. “
Madison said that each person has been handpicked based on the services they could offer and what they want to achieve.
“I’ve been doing makeup for five years and I really like this place with Mimi,” said Pebbles, the owner of Looks by Pebbles. “I’ve made a few celebrities. I toured with K Michelle last year, it was a great experience. “
M Suites is currently looking for more women interested in starting or expanding their business. The store is located at 3007 W Cypress in Tampa. .
