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

Hi Angelica, how do you think about risk?
A lot of people didn’t have faith in me and to be honest I don’t think I even had faith in myself, yet I risked my being to open up my own business. This also happened with me not knowing anything at all about furniture and how to manage that type of store; everything I learned happened along the way. Thankfully it all turned out even better than what I imagined, so I’m happy I took that risk.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I would like to believe that what sets me apart from other furniture companies is that I personally tend to my clients and give them advice as to how to decorate their homes. I let them know the materials involved and I also make sure they receive the correct merchandise. It’s not easy though, this to me is all day . There’s always work that needs to be done from checking orders, serving to my clients, to finding new providers. And with that we constantly try to improve. What I would want everyone to know is that everyone is capable to follow their dreams and actually accomplish them as long as we put in that work. Just never stop believing in yourself even if others tell you otherwise.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
If my friend came to visit and I did have that time off we would start by going to the beach. The sounds of the waves crashing helps me think clearly and I’m able to fully be myself there. After we would find a good place to eat steak I loved going to longhorn steak house ,Next would probably go to the cinema (Cinemark is my favorite) and lastly enjoy the night by going to a club in Houston. Bottled blonde its one of my favorites, I loved to dance and spend time with family and friends

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 first like to thank a great friend of mine Steve Kennedy. He was the first one who not only believed but also motivated me. He gave me the sense of security that I didn’t see in myself. Secondly, my right hand my amazing husband Juan Prado without him the store wouldn’t have stood a chance If I didn’t have his support and encouragement, I would have never had the courage to pursue my dream. thank you babe ! Next, my family. To my mom and my sister they’re always there to listen and give me advice they always shared my post , recommended me thank you sister karla canales thank you mom , to my niece she’s there to give me ideas and helps out in the store I know one day she will have her own business she’s very talented thank you karla camacho .
