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

Hi Daniel, what’s your definition for success?
Success can be defined as the achievement of a desired goal or outcome. It is the result of consistent effort, dedication, and hard work towards a specific objective. Success is not limited to financial wealth or career accomplishments; it can also refer to personal growth, happiness, and fulfillment.

It is essential to look at how you’re doing better than yesterday because success is not an overnight achievement, but rather a continuous process. By focusing on improving yourself each day, you can gradually move closer to your goals and achieve greater success. Small daily improvements, such as learning a new skill or making a positive change in your habits, can lead to significant progress over time.

Moreover, comparing your progress to yourself, rather than others, can provide a more accurate and fulfilling measure of success. Every individual has unique strengths, weaknesses, and circumstances, and comparing oneself to others can lead to feelings of inadequacy or insecurity. Therefore, the most important measure of success is personal growth and improvement, as well as the satisfaction and fulfillment that come with achieving one’s goals.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
“Menace to Society” is a unique business that sets itself apart from others through its bold and edgy brand image. The business offers a range of products and services that cater to those who are not afraid to stand out from the crowd and express themselves in unconventional ways.

What I am most proud of is the gradual growth of the business, despite the fact that it has not yet achieved major success. This growth is a testament to the hard work, dedication, and unfailing determination that has been put into the business. From trial and error to learning from feedback, I have been able to improve and refine the business model, making it more efficient and effective.

The support of friends has also been a key factor in the growth of the business. Their encouragement and belief in the business have helped me stay motivated and focused on my goals. Without their support, it would have been much harder to overcome the challenges and setbacks that come with running a business.

Along the way, I have learned several valuable lessons. One of the most important is the importance of perseverance and determination. Starting a business is never easy, and there will always be obstacles to overcome. However, with a strong belief in the business and the willingness to put in the effort, success can be achieved.

In conclusion, “Menace to Society” is a business that is gradually getting to where it needs to be through hard work, dedication, and support from friends. It sets itself apart from others through its unique brand image, and I am proud of the growth that has been achieved so far. I want the world to know that “Menace to Society” is a brand that celebrates individuality and encourages people to express themselves in their own unique way.

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.
If my best friend were to be visiting Houston, I’d be more than happy to help them plan an itinerary for their visit to Houston! I already have some great ideas already.

To start, I would definitely recommend taking them out to eat at a local Korean BBQ restaurant. Houston has some fantastic Korean BBQ places, and it would be a great way to introduce them to the local cuisine. Some great options include “Bon Kbbq” or “Gen Korean BBQ House.”

After lunch, a great way to see the city would be to rent some go-karts from “Glyders.” They offer a unique way to explore downtown Houston while having a lot of fun.

In the evenings, doesn’t have to be on that specific day but we could go bar hopping on the weekends in the “Washington Ave” area downtown Houston. This area has a great selection of bars, restaurants, and nightlife venues to choose from, such as “Bottled Blonde” or “Clutch Bar.” The options are endless.

If my best friend is interested in museums, a great option would be “The Houston Museum of Natural Science,” which is free on Thursdays. This museum offers a wide range of exhibits, including a planetarium and a butterfly exhibit.

As a boba lover, I’d love for my best friend to try my favorite spots. “Xing fu Tang” is a great choice for some of the best brown sugar boba in Houston. You could also check out “The Teahouse Tapioca & Tea” or “Gong Cha” for more boba options.

Lastly, I’m a huge fan of the Houston nightlife, I could take them to some of Houston’s popular clubs, such as “Clé Houston” or “O2 lounge.”

Overall, Houston has a lot to offer, and i can’t summarize the endless activities we’d embark on.
