We had the good fortune of connecting with Robyn Thomas and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Robyn, how has your perspective on work-life balance evolved over time?
These days with being a person, wife and mother of two boys (ages 2 & 1), balancing can become a task. I’m grateful that I am fortunate to have complete control over my schedule. To keep work life balance I had to learn discipline. In a quick cash industry it is easy to overwork thinking of the monetary reward but for sanity purposes, setting boundaries and rules for yourself and business and sticking to them is vital.

What should our readers know about your business?
Resemble Me by Robyn is a full service natural hair braidery that aids in healthy hair growth for Afro textured hair through protective braiding styles. Yes, the end result is important, however, it is not the only focus with us. We pride ourselves on properly installing protective styles that are pain free and suitable for your current hair condition, while providing protective styling tips to ensure your protective style is protecting.

I always love the end result of a style and how pleased clients are. I am most happy when clients are a step closer to embracing themselves and take pride in their crowd that stands on their head.

I’ve noticed that whenever I move with love, all that I desire comes to me. Keeping servicing fun by doing it for the love of the craft instead of for the love of money has kept me thriving and elevating. Love.

When you move with love, all desires will come!

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I am a pretty simple, laid back person. Working in the business of customer service I find myself ALWAYS talking. Services I offer can take anywhere from one hour to 24+ hours.

Definitely good food and relaxing nature would be the move.

Draft Mission Beach is always the first stop after guest(s) arrive. Great food, great drinks and an ocean view. Different times of day on different days we have to visit Sunset Cliffs. It’s a perfect place to release and just be present. I definitely have to take them to create a souvenir at The Hot Spot in Liberty Station.

Other places we’d visit are Las Americas Premium Outlet, Fashion Valley Mall, Yard House, Dirty Birds, California Pizza Kitchen and San Diego Botanic Garden just to name a few.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I’d like to shout out my husband, Quincey Thomas. It is because of him that Resemble Me by Robyn is here today. He is my biggest supporter, my sounding board, my shoulder to rest on when it’s overwhelming and every other thing I need for the time being.
