BOSS Spotlight Feature: Dorothy Williams

Dorothy Williams, a mother, wife, entrepreneur, and the founder of Cre’A’s love Butter!
Cre'A's Love Butter is an all-natural, homemade brand that’s made with Love, Passion, and Organic Ingredients that are meant to moisturize the skin and enhance the beauty you already possess. 

What were some obstacles that you faced in the beginning process of starting your business or career? The first obstacle was letting go of self-doubt so that I could actually start the business. The second was not knowing how to actually “Run” my business. Timing was an obstacle at the beginning because I had to literally learn the basics. Lastly, Patience. My business was growing so fast that I had to take a step back. Companies wanted my product in their stores but I couldn’t because of legal reasons. Turning down money was a very tough thing to do.

What inspired you to break into your particular industry?
I was known as “Lady Bug” because I had a little dry spot on this little round fat face as a teen. Once I had to become conscious of my health, I realized that it was not only the food I ate but also the chemicals that I was putting on my skin. My family would ask me to make it for free so my husband, Andre suggested that I sell it and three years later, here we are!

How do you balance your personal life and professional life or have you been able to find balance?
Despite all that I’ve been through in this short life, I’ve always found balance. Being a young parent, I cooked, cleaned, and yelled at the same time. I put the husband to bed and got back to it. Sometimes I include personal in small details of professional, and when I am overwhelmed, I have three options, meditate, write, or wine and dine myself.

What is an inspirational quote that you live by?
“My mission in life is not to merely survive, but to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.” Maya Angelou

Who were some influential people or mentors that helped or encouraged you along the way?
My mother, children, husband, Maya Angelou, my God-mother Mrs. Cameron, and my three sisters, Martha, Francyne, and Carmel.

What are your “must haves” to keep your career or business going strong?
First, Self- love. Self is where you’ll find what it is you love and is passionate about. Second, Knowledge. Know everything there is to know about what it is you do so that you create or enhance what’s already out there.

What is your definition of a BOSS?
A person that wakes up knowing that life is separate from the grind, and stick to the plan. A person that will remove all nouns that causes them to sway from the plan.

Provide us with two words that describe you?
Creative expert.
