Heathyr Frances and the DAB COMPANY
Heathyr Frances is the owner of The DAB Company, a company created to enrich the self-esteem of young women, helping them to enhance their own “down and beautiful” individuality. She is also the host of The DAB Company YouTube web series, and has created various multi-media opportunities including a company blog and multiple social media outlets to support the company’s vision.
“I want to Inspire people. I want someone to look at me and say, because of you I didn’t give up.”
As a young girl Heathyr was shy, and would sometimes find herself trying to come up with the answers to life’s difficulties on her own. Eventually she did, but wished she had the courage to ask a close friend, or even a family member. A dream to be a fashion designer, at 18, Heathyr moved to Los Angeles, CA to attend the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising. Between the pressures of life and school and allowing peer pressures to influence her, Heathyr found herself living on the fast track of drugs and alcohol, unable to pay the bills. Dropping out of school, she hit rock bottom. Through supportive friends, family, and her own self-will, Heathyr kicked her drug and alcohol addiction, starting full time as a receptionist in an LA firm, and then using her entrepreneurial spirit to become a licensed spray tan technician creating and servicing her own client base. These tools gave her the strength to step out in “down and beautiful” form as the owner of The DAB Company.
The DAB Company is a summation of her many learning experiences and her efforts to help young women circumvent their challenges as they grow through life.
