Nationwide  Despite the pandemic, Katrina Wilson, founder of Creme Brulee has been proclaimed as "recession-proof" and is moving forward to develop her multicultural salon in downtown Detroit.

After receiving nearly $600k in funding including grants and loans to launch her multicultural salon, Creme Brulee, last year, she was eager to hit the ground running. That all came to a screeching halt when coronavirus hit the scene. Restrictions imposed by the government made it difficult to get things done.

However, Katrina is refusing to give up on her dream. She comments, “Creme Brulee has been a dream of mine for 10 years, and for the last 2 years, it has truly been a very challenging journey. I was told no 23 times before I received a yes. I was able to overcome every adversity faced through three simple words: prayer, preparation, and patience. God selected me for this role because I possess certain knowledge, skills, and character traits that will enable me to lead others on a journey of continuous improvement and success.”

Do you Suffer From Itchy And Embarrassing Skin Patches Or Blotches?

You May Have A Condition Known As Tinea Versicolor.

  Clear Up Your Blotchy Skin With New Cream Proven To Help Get Rid Of Skin Patches Caused By Tinea Versicolor

Discover how Mizell Mais, a mother of three and entrepreneur, developed a skin creme to overcome blemishes and spots from the fugus that causes Tinea Versicolor. In her early thirties, she developed a spotty rash that covered more than 40% of her body, including her face.

Being dark-skinned, the rash was much lighter than her natural complexion, and the itchy spots were flaky and dry. The rash is called Tinea Versicolor. It's caused by an overgrowth of fungus that naturally occurs on human skin, and is most prevalent in humid or tropical climates.  To learn more about how she created her VanishClear Sulfur Cream to clear up spotty skin caused by Tinea Versicolor Click Here

She continues, "Early in my entrepreneurial career, I made the decision to uphold high standards of performance, dedication, and loyalty to the people I serve. I also welcomed challenges which allowed me to be proactive and use my resources wisely. I was not afraid to fail. Along the way, I’ve learned some quite interesting lessons, but 2020 taught me the most valuable. It taught me to continuously seek opportunities despite whatever circumstances I am in."

"Understanding my life’s purpose and the legacy I must leave helped me demonstrate honesty, compassion, integrity, respect, and sensitivity towards every lender that denied my application. I never took business; personal, which allowed me to look at every rejection letter and persevere,” she adds.

A Groundbreaking Ceremony is Taking Place to Celebrate

Katrina’s resilience and determination have kept her business dreams alive while many other businesses have gone away permanently. Not only has she been able to acquire an additional $200K in funding for the salon, but build-out of the interior has also commenced. To celebrate, the team is hosting a “Groundbreaking Ceremony” on January 28, 2021. The salon grand opening is scheduled for early Spring 2021.

The future home of Creme Brulee Detroit will be at 6406 Woodward Avenue, Detroit, MI 48202.
