Meet Cassandra Moran of Riley Brianne Hair and Makeup Design

Today we’d like to introduce you to Cassandra Moran.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Cassandra. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
It was about 4 years ago, right after I graduated from cosmetology school, when I got a job that turned into my dream career. I met Riley through a co-worker who knew she needed some help with her growing business. Over the years working next to Riley help to shape me into the artist I have become. I worked hard and stayed focused on perfecting my styling technique and by business and people skills. Less than one year ago, Riley asked me if I would like to continue on and run the business so she could pursue other dreams of hers. I couldn’t believe that I would have ever have been so lucky to take over a small business and run it as my own. Since I took over ownership I have had to push to learn all the aspects of running my own business and taking care of a team. It’s always a learning experience, but I absolutely LOVE what I do.

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?
I feel like most of my struggles are ahead of me. As I take the time to grow a develop the business I continue to hit bumps in the road that show me just how hard Riley had to work to create such a successful business. It is the beginning for me, but I am excited for all the growth in my near future.

What moment in your career do you look back most fondly on?
Without a doubt the proudest moment of my career so far would be when Riley asked me if I would take over the company she worked so hard to build. To know that my hard work allowed someone to trust me with something they worked so hard to build made me feel amazing. I knew that I would go far, but having all this so soon makes me so proud.
