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

Hi Ajani, do you have some perspective or insight you can share with us on the question of when someone should give up versus when they should keep going?
I learned a good answer to this question recently just recently. If you have the feeling of giving up, all you had was a wish or hope. But if you have a desire, you will go through and see your product or service to the end.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
I run a publishing company, but I mainly just write books. I love to just get the ideas flowing from my head on to paper and share my ideas with the world. Something that makes me different from other authors is the fact that I’m a 14-year-old writer doing big things in the world. Currently, I’m in a great position in my business. I’m in the process of writing a new book and selling my first chapter book. GEMS. It wasn’t too hard to complete the writing process . All I had to do was stay really dedicated to finishing the book. In life, all you have to do is stay persistent and your desire will come to reality.

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.
A fun place in Katy that cones to mind for me is Top golf. I may not be very good at golfing, but its really fun to just go out and take a few swings at the ball to see how far it goes. Plus I think the food there is pretty good. If I had to take a friend to go eat, I would probably go to menchies. There selection of frozen yogurt is huge along with an array of different toppings.

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 think my parents were a huge driving force in my becoming an author. My mom helped pushed me to my limits, bettering myself, while my dad helped walk me through the process of writing and publishing a book. I would also like to thank my writing coach today who still helps me create excellent stories to this very day.
