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

Hi Brittany, how do you think about risk?
I look at risks differently now than I did when I was younger. As a young adult I was careless without thinking it through, which made taking them seem like more of a gamble. Now I have a strategy for when it works out and a backup plan just in case it doesn’t. So I win no matter what the outcome is!

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.
Of course there were challenges. There’s still some. Being in the business of marketing brands, it’s always tough marketing your own brand. I struggle with social media content and getting followers.

I love jewelry because it can tell a lot about a person wearing it without speaking a word. I love to tell a story through accessories. What sets me apart is my jewels are hand picked like flowers of a garden.

My goal is to reach more women by empowering them through jewelry that can make them feel like a million bucks without spending it!

I recently just celebrated 1 year in business and what I’ve learned so far is that posting 2-3 times a day on social media is critical!

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?
Houston has so many hot spots! Definitely need to check out the local community restaurants like The Breakfast Klub, Turkey Leg Hut and Taste Bar + Kitchen. Buffalo Soldiers Museum and a historical tour of 3rd ward to check out Beyoncé home. Get some dope pics for the gram at Gerald D. Hines Waterwall and the rooftop view from Post Houston. Catch a happy hour or late night vibe there!

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?
My #1 fan and best supporter of my business Jerri McInnis. Get you a friend who will speak volumes about you when you aren’t in the room full of people. She motivates me as she has several businesses. This phenomenal woman will fix others crown before putting hers on!
