A UNIQUE GUIDE TO ENTREPRENEURSHIP THAT EMBRACES A NON-TRADITIONAL PATH TO SUCCESS.

Create Something is the inspiring journey of first-generation entrepreneur Lilly Benitez, who tells her story of creating something out of nothing, intertwining two journeys - a road trip from Dallas, TX to Central America in the late 90s, and the creation of her small business in 2015. In her book, Lilly shares the valuable lessons she learned during her childhood trip that parallel her journey of starting Blade Craft Barber Academy.

THE BLOX SEASON 4

Lilly completed a competition docu-series, The Blox, for startups as a Judge. It aired on Wednesday, October 5, 2022 and is Directed & Produced by Reality Show star Weston Bergmann. Lilly is the good news of Deep Ellum in that her barber academy creates jobs, as well as increases business to the Dallas area, and because of her success was asked to be a judge on a reality show about entrepreneurship! 

“Lilly’s advice. Mentoring anyone is hard. But mentoring this many people, doing this many things – is quasi-impossible.  Lilly did it. Lilly did it her way, while still remaining in the confines of our system. She managed to drop at least one nugget to each person she met, and they’re all appreciative.” Weston Bergmann -actor, and serial entrepreneur. Watch Season 4 Here!
