We had the good fortune of connecting with Blanche J and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Blanche, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
Freedom! Bringing a vision to life w/o having to consider the noise of unwanted opinions. It’s not easy but the reward is indescribable!
Please tell us more about your art. We’d love to hear what sets you apart from others, what you are most proud of or excited about. How did you get to where you are today professionally. Was it easy? If not, how did you overcome the challenges? What are the lessons you’ve learned along the way. What do you want the world to know about you or your brand and story?
I’m a vocalist; I tell stories, on pitch. I’m influenced & inspired by everyday things, happening to everyday people. It’s my job to be relatable & put a song to my thoughts & yours. I’m excited to view the world around me & write/create music that expresses what I feel while viewing the world. I’m also excited to write/create w/my best friends, Chontae & Loren. We make a great team! We’ve been building the “Blanche J” brand together long enough to know that our business takes all of us being committed. We’ve overcome doubts & fears, and we realize that we’re better together. I want the world to know that the “Blanche J” brand is one of a kind. We’re genuine, kind & fair. We’re not afraid of hard work & we walk in love.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc. In your view what are some of the most fun, interesting, exciting people, places or things to check out?
In times past, we’d definitely visit a few local coffee shops & restaurants that have become some of my absolute favorites. Because of the Covid restrictions there’s honestly not a lot of places we’d visit. I don’t feel completely comfortable with going out these days. Our visit would include TONS of #DoorDash, Lol! We’d more than likely stay in, eat great take out & toast to an amazing time catching up!
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
This shoutout is dedicated to my team: Chontae Williams, Loren Webb & Teyah Scales! They all play a major part in ensuring that all things “Blanche J” are done in integrity & love.
