We had the good fortune of connecting with Brooklyn Janielle Miller and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Brooklyn Janielle, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
Risks can make or break a career, but without those risks you may never know your full potential. Starting my business has been a gamble from the start. When I decided to finally go out on my own and become a booth renting stylist, in November 2019, I had zero clientele. Somehow, I knew everything would work out and by taking that leap of faith, I am now a Owner of my own brand, Beauty by Brook Jani.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
During this last year, I’ve expanded my brand into a product line called Brook Jani’s Choice. I pride myself in being a natural hair care specialist, serving all hair types. I have a specific interest in curly and kinky hair textures. As a developing business owner, I’m extremely humbled by all the support I receive. I’m so excited to announce I have recently moved into my very own salon suite! I’m proud of the growth I see in myself every day, The sky’s the limit. Working hard and not comparing my journey to anyone else’s is essential. There are no handouts when being an entrepreneur but if you work hard, and stick to your script, you will achieve your goals. I thrive to make every client feel special when they sit in my chair. Every client receives my professional opinion and I make sure I have given them all the education they need to maintain their style. I coach my clients on preserving healthy hair at home, along with product recommendations that fit their individual lifestyles and hair needs. The ultimate goal is healthy hair for everyone. I truly want the best for all my clients! Whatever the hair goals, let’s achieve them together.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
My itinerary for a friend from out of town would definitely go something like this! My favorite restaurants and places! Definitely San Diego gems! Monday: Snooze eatery breakfast + Balboa Park Botanical Building Tuesday: La Jolla coves + Chiquitas Mexican restaurant for dinner Wednesday: Day at Sea World or the Zoo Thursday: Boardwalk at Mission Beach + Crab Pub for dinner Friday: Sunset Cliffs + Javier’s Mexican restaurant for dinner Saturday : Birch Aquarium + Surf & Soul for lunch + PB or Downtown nightlife

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I want to recognize my sister, Danielle. She has believed in me from the start. Not many people know this, but she pushed me to start cosmetology school. She is my constant motivator and I hope she knows how much I appreciate everything she does. Without her, I wouldn’t be as successful as I have been thus far. Thank you so much sister! I am extremely blessed to have such a supportive family. My Mom and Dad, Dana and Joel have always gone above and beyond for me. I love you all so much, your support doesn’t go unnoticed! Thank you for always believing in me.
