Esperance, mummy dearest!!

                                                                          My mum is the inspiration and motivation behind my Entrepreneurial spirit - Francine B

 

This Mother’s Day we decided to interview the lovely lady behind Queenfidence Cosmetics, Francine B to find out a little more about her personal life. We hope you are encouraged as you learn a little bit about her relationship with her mom this Mother's Day.

1. Not a lot of people know this but you named one of your  lipsticks, Esperance after your own mother. What led you to do that?

Francine B: My mum is the inspiration and motivation behind my Entrepreneurial spirit. When naming the lipstick I wanted something that would somewhat reflect  her strength, boldness and fearless spirit. That’s why I named one of our bold lipsticks from the first collection Esperance.

2. What do you admire most about your mom?

Francine B: Omg!! I admire her a lot. Everything about her is phenomenal. She has unconditional love for everyone around her, especially for my dad. She is hardworking and very confident in who she is. I admire her love for God and how prayerful she is.  I admire so many things about her and I can’t name them all. But I am who I am today because of her.

3. Can you briefly describe your relationship with your mom?

Francine B:  We are really close. I call her my prayer warrior. Whenever I have things that are stressing me, she is always there to pray for me.

4. What are some of the things your mother has taught you?

Francine B: My mom taught me how to be a prayerful woman and to trust in God. She taught me to be independent, to work hard for what I want and to be confident in myself. She loves to dress up. I remember her telling us growing up that “ Whenever you go outside, dress like you’re going to meet the queen” she said, “It doesn’t matter if you’re going to the grocery store, dress your best all the time”. She is definitely my role model and someone I admire a lot.

5. So lastly what are your plans for this Mother’s Day?

Francine B: Every Mother’s Day, my sisters and I take her out. I’m planning on also getting her a present.

Thank you, Francine, for giving us a glimpse of your relationship with your mother. She is truly an inspiring woman. This Mother’s Day we encourage you to take time to show appreciation to all the amazing mothers out there!!

Mama was my greatest teacher, a teacher of compassion, love and fearlessness. If love is sweet as a flower, then my mother is that sweet flower of love
