Meet ESG Success Story- Ieisha

Who is Ieisha and WHY you should be on the lookout

Ieisha got her first taste of the beauty industry at sixteen years of age. She worked at GS Aveda in Kingsway as a reception/assistant. Little did she know the part time job she landed while attending high school would turn into her dream career.

We met Ieisha when she attended Executive Spa Group. She credits Executive Spa Group with shaping her business mindset while working on her personal development. She states she found the program rewarding and loved being surrounded by powerful women that left an impact on her.

The years rolled by as they do. Ieisha explored other industries, but something always drew her back to the beauty industry. Perhaps, it was her love of beauty products and the sense of confidence they bring out in herself and other people. Or perhaps it was her entrepreneurial spirit. Either way, Ieisha decided to take a chance and follow her passion.

Did we mention the sister?

Ieisha has not always gotten along with her sister. Lucky for them that changed as they grew older! In 2018, Ieisha and her sister, Shamira, started an online lash business. They managed to invest their profits into the purchase a lash vending machine. Currently, the sisters operate a store-front shop, ISJ Beauty, at City Centre mall in Edmonton, Alberta.

ISJ Beauty is a family owned and operated company that aims to empower other small businesses by retailing their beauty lines. All lines and products are crafted to enhance natural beauty and elevate your self-care routine.

From luxurious skin care essentials to cutting-edge grooming solutions, they currently carry lines from Angel fade for their men’s line, LUVSPICK for body care, Grow Garden for hair oils, Project Potential for hair care and more.

Ieisha’s tips for budding entrepreneurs

She suggests focusing on a few key things:

“First and foremost, find your WHY and what drives you to do what you do. Would you be able to do this without being paid? If so, then this is your passion! Secondly, build a strong network of connections, mentors, and advisors who can offer support. Lastly, be open to learning, keep learning about your industry, market trends and new technologies.”


Get in touch with Ieisha

For Ieisha, it is important to give those businesses a chance to get their name out there and get all the support and guidance needed. ISJ Beauty currently offers a diverse range of products, but they are always looking for more businesses to partner with. Click the link above to contact Ieisha directly.
