Mrs. Cynthia Felix Pierre
A native of Miami, FL and a first generation Haitian American, Cynthia Felix Pierre has never been the standard, normal or average professional. She has a combined passion for hair and Accounting. In her recent published book, Where Beauty Demands Structure, she knew this beauty business book would serve a great purpose in a time such as this. There's a significant number of her millennial counterparts in the beauty industry starting businesses wholeheartedly and they are not aware of many components. Cynthia had a passion for beauty and hair from the age of nine years old and committed to doing friends and relatives hair starting at eleven years old. At the age of fifteen she joined the Institute of Young Entrepreneurs at the Carrie P. Meek Educational Center of Miami-Dade College. She later won business plan competitions that would afford her the opportunity to travel to Milwaukee, WI and Dallas, TX to compete with other high schoolers around the United States. At the age of 16, Cynthia understood the impact of having a business plan that was detailed because it served as a road-map and also provided potential investors an idea of whether the business would be profitable and generate returns. Fast forward to 2011, Cynthia graduated from Florida State University with her degree in Accounting and Finance. One month prior to graduation she was not sure exactly what she wanted to do with her degree because her GPA was not appealing in the eyes of Big Four Firms. She took a leap of faith and interviewed for a Finance position in Beijing, China. After being selected for the opportunity she went to Beijing for two months. She later returned to the United States where she worked as an Escrow Analyst for a small firm and within two years she went into the government sector where she was hired as a Tax Auditor. She truly enjoyed the work and tax claims she worked through, but after three years she left her agency to focus on her studies and eventually started her salon consulting company.
