Hey guys! In this episode of The Bigger Dreams Podcast: Episode 004, I sit with Desiree Verdejo owner of the luxury beauty boutique, Vivrant Beauty. Before opening the boutique, Desiree was a lawyer working on billion dollar deals. She has always had a love for beauty products and after her experience shopping in high end beauty boutiques and neighborhood beauty supply stores she set out on a journey to combine the two vastly different experiences and fill the void in her home of Harlem, New York.

The Bigger Dreams Podcast: Episode 004 with
Desiree is a Harlem native whose ties to her neighborhood have brought her to fill a void in the beauty industry that women of color have been experiencing for years. She has carefully curated a space with hair and beauty products that she believes in and is passionate about. Desiree wanted to add to the richness of her changing neighborhood by adding her own solution to the vastly different experiences a women has while shopping at a “beauty supply store” and a luxury skincare counter in department stores like Saks. She wanted to meld these experiences and in turn has created the first storefront of its kind in Harlem.
Though Desiree has always been fascinated with products and packaging she started her career after college as a lawyer and worked in that field until 2 weeks before her store opened.
In this episode, Desiree gives her unique perspective on opening a brick and mortar store, how Harlem has shaped her and everything to do with corporate life to entrepreneurship.
