We’ve Only Just Begun


Live Finesse originally launched in July 2016 but like any brand, had its share of difficulties. A relaunch occurred in July 2018. The owner & creator, Essence Sylvia Smith began to find her passion. This allowed her to fulfill her purpose and it’s been non stop ever sense.

You are cordially invited to celebrate our anniversary with us. The owner, Essence Sylvia Smith loves celebrations. Throughout this journey of entrepreneurship she has learned the importance of celebrating “small wins” and “humble beginnings”. This years celebration is themed: “We’ve only just begun...” This is to signify that this is just the beginning of Live Finesse LLC. and The Hot Girls Girls Podcast. There’s so much more in store!

Please join us and help celebrate this milestone

Cheers to more years of finessing !
