Discover How “Ronnie” Turned an Obstacle Into a Business


Back in October 2014, while attending Chef Nadege Fleurimond’s recipe book release party, I was introduce to Garonne the founder of Ronnie’s Scalp Oil. I was fascinated by her determination to start her company. In just a few months she contacted me to say the products were ready. Ronnie is an inspiration to and brings back hope for those fighting alopecia. Her passion and dedication reminded me of this quote by Idowu Koyenikan “Mountains are only a problem when they are bigger than you. You should develop yourself so much that become bigger than the mountains you face”. Find out more about this smart Haitian woman in Business and her products below.

Garonne and the Inspiration behind Ronnie’s Scalp Oil

My name is Garonne Decossard aka Ronnie. I hold a position in the corporate world and also manage my business in the evenings and weekends. I have always been attracted to ways of healing the body naturally. When I started to lose my hair, I followed doctor’s orders and saw minimal improvement. As a result, I went on a mission to find a way to treat my scalp with natural remedies.

Through my research and trials, I create a hair oil that has helped me, my family and many of my friends dealing with hair loss. I was able to create a formula that smells delicious yet was able to improve the condition of my hair and scalp. After much prodding from my loved ones, I decided to make it available for sale to the public. “Ronnie’s Scalp Oil” entered the market in January 2015.


Lessons Learned While Building Her Brand

I honestly did not face any challenges launching the company, I just had to take the plunge. The challenge is in keeping the company growing while holding a full time job and having other personal obligations. That’s the challenge and I am determined to overcome it!

I learned that having a schedule, rhythm to work on to-dos is important. People will only be as excited about your business as you are, so make it your all and the world will take it seriously!

Garonne’s Advice for Other Entrepreneurs

Do not shoot for perfection, start and figure things out as you go. Do not sacrifice service and quality, but don’t worry about having one word misspelled, or people picking apart your work. Remember, you had to think of everything to launch, so be easy on yourself and focus on your goal. Share what you intend to do with some key contacts and they will connect you to the right companies, and people.
