We had the good fortune of connecting with Charlicia “Lele Baby” Sample and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Charlicia “Lele Baby”, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
My thought process behind starting my own business was wild! I just knew I wanted to be the best photographer & videographer ever. Although I wasn’t rich, I knew I needed the best gear & a set of goals. I went out and got what I needed & I never gave up.

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 am beyond creative & wear many hats! I’m set apart from others because I strive to be better than I was the day before. I compete with myself to bring out the best in myself. I’m an artist vocally with an equipped ability to play 8 instruments while being a photographer & videographer. That makes me excited because I feel that I am a different type of talented individual. I got to where I am today with no just support from those who believe in me, but hard work and dedication. Although I feel like quitting at times, I realized daily that I’ve come too far to quit! I will never quit! I learned that anything worth having is worth waiting for! I’ve waited for this moment and I know it’s only up from here! I want the world to know that this is just the beginning, I have an amazing story to tell with my creativity! Stay tuned.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
If my best friend came to visit I’d most definitely show them the best time ever! The first stop would be to a place where you could maintain a peace of mind – a beautiful view of lake with a waterfall. To me, that symbolizes beauty! Next, we would go out for food, because I’m a foodie & enjoy exploring amazing foods. We would have snow cones for drinks! They are simply the best and select view of a variety of flavors!! We would visit Atlanta; it’s an amazing city & one of my favorite places to visit. The most fun things to check out are people & great vibes. We would simply vibe out & have an amazing time!

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I would like to shout out Elishia Baines! She is an amazing friend & always pushes me to do my best even through a social media platform when I least expect it. She wears many hats just as I do! She deserves a shout out for sure!
