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

Hi Phyllis, what’s the most important lesson your business/career has taught you?
To stay focused and to make sure you are following the vision that is designed for you and your business. When confusion comes, step back and revisit the blueprint on why you started in the first place. The grass always seems to be greener on the other side ,but it’s only an illusion to stay focused on your vision and not to think about what others are doing. Business growth takes time , you have to allow yourself to grow and understand what works for you and your business.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Yes I am the owner and license stylist of PKS Signature Salo and the Ceo of U’Balance Hair Care System. I help women to come up with a system that will work for them through their busy lifestyles. I want the world to know me as Passionate, Innovator, and Ambitious and God fearing.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Phoenix, Arizona would be the place to go. We would have dinner at this seafood place called Pappadeaux after dinner maybe we could check out a jazz bar that offer live music and have a few non-alcoholic beverage since I am not a drinker or smoker. Since we are going to be there for the next few days we will check out the Aquarium and maybe we can squeeze in another small tour Phoenix Art Museum. And later on grab lunch at Chompie’s and try one of their famous hot pastrami sandwich.
