We had the good fortune of connecting with Anthanet Smiley and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Anthanet, how do you define success?
When a Vision or A Dream Turns out well it Becomes Favorable. Success also influences your Motivation and Drive For your Passion.    

What should our readers know about your business?

I’m the proud owner and operator of Nettie Boo Pickles. I make Kool-Aid Pickles, Pineapples, Peaches, Dipped pickles, including Pickle & Pineapple favor trays. I also offer cute trendy gift ideas for your special occasions. I’m a Tastebud pleaser which sets me apart from the rest. I try to think outside the box when I’m working in the Lab. When it comes to kool-aid pickles, including when Hot Cheetos and Cotton Candy are added my treats are sure to make your Tastebuds Dance. Nettie Boo Pickles won Best Kool-Aid Pickles last October 2020 at the 3rd Annual Business Awards. This was a huge accomplishment for me that I’m thankful and very proud of. How I got to where I am today with my Business is all due to God’s Hands, timing & his Guidance. I ground myself on being professional, & staying positive about what’s meant for me & my business is meant for me.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?

I would definitely say to take them to The Best Maid Pickle Emporium it’s a nice atmosphere with a variety of different pickles & novelty items.  Sundance Square located in the heart of the historical downtown district is always a fun vibrant spot to visit. When it comes to dining I recommend Pluckers or Uncle Julios. Alley Cats is a fun spot for entertainment, and for shopping, the Grand Prairie Premium Outlet Mall would be my first choice.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?

I would like to give a Great Big Heart Warming shoutout to my Family and Friends. Thank you for believing in me and encouraging me in this endeavor. To my customers thank you for keeping Nettie Boo Pickles going and putting me on the map, it’s only the top from here. The outpour of customers referrals have given me an outlet to ship my products to other States. A big shout out to Unika Farris Ard, Djreyrey Cedra, Daphne Bell, Mattie Smiley, Asya Lee, A’Taezeana (Tootie) Lee, LaToya Pace Burns, Trecy Johnson, Roshunda McCoy, Bishop Jones, 1st Lady Jones, and my TCAP Family for all of your love & support.
