Through her business, Salon Pink, she has been part of the Ignite Mentor Network as a mentor since its inception in 2019.

“Kidist is passionate about the ways mentorship supports the success of entrepreneurial leaders. She knows from experience that the journey of an entrepreneur is challenging. There are setbacks along the way and she enjoys encouraging entrepreneurs, reminding them that failing is part of the road to success.

We look forward to enacting her insights and leveraging her energy."

“The importance of creating a corporate-like structure in a small business provides scalability, longevity, and sustainability long term.
