We had the good fortune of connecting with Breauna Nichole and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Breauna, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking.
I think taking risks is a huge part of going to the next level. It may not feel like it at the time. We may not realize it; taking risks is simply making decisions. Connecting with people and establishing new relationships are taking risks. The beauty is no one is perfect and every one is on their own journey. We get the opportunity to figure this out together. Denzel Washington says to “fail big” and “take risks professionally.” Anytime he auditioned earlier on in his career, he was taking a risk. In humble beginnings, he didn’t know if he was going to get the part. I think taking risks is the only way you will learn the outcome or the purpose for yourself. In DeVon Franklin’s book, Produced by Faith, he talks about being told not to go to Hollywood. “That’s Sodom and Gomorrah.” Where would he be and others that he’s impacting along his journey, if he didn’t take the leap of faith? There came a point for me when I said, I’m going to find out for myself. Seeking God and trusting Him in the process allows you to grow and develop while He leads you to the next step.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
One thing that sets us apart is being ourselves. Working on being the best you as possible because no one can be just like you. Recently, I’m encouraged about us coming together and taking a stand for injustice. I’m still walking out the story that God has already written. Pursing the journey is not always easy. Once you make a decision about what you’re doing, the obstacles become smaller because you’re in the pursuit of the assignment. I am not perfect, but I am progressing. It’s encouraging to know no matter where we are, we still have opportunities to be better and do more for others.
Any great local spots you’d like to shoutout?
I enjoy going to Klyde Warren Park Downtown Dallas. They always have fun things going on, food trucks, and it’s a good time being with people you love. When my sister was moving to LA, we went to the Reunion Tower to celebrate and it’s exciting rotating in the tower while viewing all of downtown Dallas. It was a good time thinking and imagining!
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I literally could go on for days about who has helped me along the way. There are so many people and even my failures have helped me along the way. Connecting with local business leaders has been a driving force. When you learn from your failures, they become lessons learned. My father taught me to be like a sponge. Everything I watch, read, and listen to, I’m soaking up the good so I can in return pour back into someone else.
