NEWBERRY — Nancy Williamson helps clients get on track for business success in Newberry County, even if it means getting her hair braided.
When small business owners need assistance with publicizing their business or getting organized, Williamson helps them since she is a certified business adviser with the Newberry Small Business Development Center.
Just recently, Williamson stepped out of her comfort zone to help a client who has an African hair braiding company.
“I have a French-speaking African hair braiding client that I worked with to help her get started last year – Celine Diona - who owns Beautiful African Hair Braiding LLC. She wanted a white woman on her website,” said Williamson, who decided to do it because she just wants to help her clients.
Williamson said that Diona braided her hair recently taking seven and a half hours. While she patiently waited, she helped Diona out with her website updates.
Williamson said that where Diona is from — West Africa — everyone braids their hair and it’s not limited to the color of the skin.
