Dr. Seyi Oteri-Tsague

I worked with a Podiatry group for a while and then my husband and I decided to go ahead and get an office space and open up a clinic. We are now serving the Richmond, Texas and surrounding areas. I want to be able to give back to the community and serve all populations, especially the geriatric population who are at high risks for mobility issues as age and health other factors accumulate. Read more>>

Waffles’N’Cream evolved in October 2017 through the inspiration of my first son Nathen. it was a beautiful Saturday morning, my family and I gathered for breakfast, I asked my son Nathen “what would you like to eat?” He answered “mummy can I please have waffles and ice cream?” so, I leaned towards the counter in shock because the combination of hot waffles and ice cream was far from the norm. Read more>>

I’ve always had a love affair with shoes. I always wanted to wear shoes that nobody else had, so I always bought outlier styles. That fueled my desire to start a business. Fashion is popular, but style comes from the individual. Keeping that in mind, I incorporate both into the inventory. Shoes that are trendy, as well as some styles that are different from the “norm,” however the “norm” is defined. Read more>>

Started back in 2016, at a house party that I was at with my friend Greg. He was actually DJing the party he started getting a little too lit so I asked him “ hey, I can take over for you so you can go have fun and enjoy the scenery!” so as I got on the turntables, I have never been on one before other than the video game “DJ Hero” which was funny. Read more>>

I’m a business analyst by profession. Shortly after I had my first son, I quickly had to rearrange my schedule and that also meant lesser time for my regular hair pampering sessions which I greatly loved! I’ve always loved styling my hair as-is without any extensions and love braids. When I do use extensions, I typically use clip-ins just to add volume to my hair. Read more>>

I’ve always been interested in women’s issues but as I joined the business world, I saw that some of the assumptions I had weren’t totally true. That there wasn’t as much progress as I had thought there was. I started asking why and what can I do about it. My philosophy is if you’re not part of the solution, you’re part of the problem. So, how can I take my strengths and use them to create change? Read more>>

Today, I am a fashion buyer, founder and CEO of When & Where, an online boutique catering to millennial movers and shakers (entrepreneurs, professionals) with clothing that works from the boardroom to happy hour. However, my path to fashion was a circuitous one. While I always had a passion for style and clothing, I steered away from pursuing it as a full-time profession. Read more>>

When I look back, I’ve always taken photos. As early as middle school. I have the embarrassing photos to prove it. Haha Back then it was film cameras. Then that changed into the evolution of smartphones. I took pictures all the time. My friends would tell me that I had a really good eye for things so I just decided one day to learn more. Read more>>

I’ve always been around hair. My Great Grandmother was a hairstylist, and then my mother was a stylist for over 20 years. I never went to the salon because my mom did my hair at home, but sometimes she would bring clients home and id always watch. As I got older, I started doing my hair, before I was 10, like I did my own ponytails and barrettes. Read more>>
