About Me

Hey there! I’m Khila, Founder & CEO & I’d like to welcome you to The Bougie Brand.

A little bit about me — I started my entrepreneurial journey in college a few years back, when I started SHE Muse, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping women of color find themselves in college.

I hosted networking events, workshops, panels, & community service initiatives — all made for the purpose of teaching women of color how they can elevate their lives through their careers, connections, and confidence. SHE Muse was fun, and I was really making an impact in my community like I had hoped for, but I needed MONEY and if it’s one it wasn’t doing - it was that. So I decided to put profits to my passion and enroll in school to become a certified makeup artist. (Mind you - this was always during my sophomore year at college!)

Once I became certified, I used to take clients in my dorm room on campus. I also started selling lashes under my beauty brand, K’s Doll Kollection.

Enter - Khila, the serial entrepreneur.

Around this time, a lot of people caught on to what I was doing and started to express their admiration for my hustle. A lot of people also started asking me for business advice, now that I’d had experience in not-for-profits, sales, and services for clients. People started asking me to meet up around campus so they could ask me business questions.

& Then it dawned on me, I could charge for this! & Why shouldn’t I? I was giving up my time, and sharing my experience and expertise and helping people achieve real results by launching their businesses. I was doing the damn thing & deserved me coin!

Enter - the Bougie Brand, which saw massive success immediately, both in revenue and client results. I’ve helped thousands of women get their businesses started, revamped, and producing revenue.

I've also developed new product lines including the Bougie Lifestyle Planner & Thinking Of A Master Plan Notebook, the planner bundle made specifically for goal-oriented boss babes that value self care. It's sold thousands of copies within the last 2 years and has helped so many women truly manifest and makes moves toward their goals.
