We had the good fortune of connecting with Deandrea Shantele and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Deandrea, what do you attribute your success to?
The most important factor behind my success and the success of my brand would be my faith in God. I’ve experienced so many challenges that could’ve literally taken me out physically, mentally and emotionally, but my faith gave me the strength I needed to keep going.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
I am an Image Consultant, Motivational Speaker, Encouragement Coach and Business Mentor who’s known as an expert on confidence, motivation and personal power. What I am most proud of, and excited about would be my full transition into being a Personal Stylist. As a Personal Stylist, I help clients create the most suitable image for them and their brand, by choosing clothes, shoes and accessories that fit their body types and individual needs as well as style advice on hair and make-up.
I have over 25 years of Business Experience in Corporate America and Entrepreneurship. With my background as an Entrepreneur, Project Manager and Trainer for major companies, I use my skills to motivate employees and individuals to take companies and businesses to the next level. Now, I am incorporating my love for fashion to help others take their personal and professional brands to the next level by changing their visual image.
Being an entrepreneur will NEVER be easy, but it will always be worth it! I can honestly say I’ve overcome the challenges by using my faith as the foundation of everything that I do. When it doesn’t make sense on paper, my faith gives me the strength to keep believing that it WILL!
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Houston is such an amazing city with so many levels to experience. Amazing food, some of the best nightlife and of course some dope shopping experiences.
So if you’ve never been to Houston some of my favorite spots are Pappadeaux, Phil & Derek’s for adult beverages and Downtown Houston is beautiful for sightseeing and hanging out. And you can’t miss on shopping at the malls and local boutiques. Make sure you’re here on a Sunday to experience Sunday Funday – there’s nothing like it!
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would like to dedicate this shoutout to my husband Hawk and my children Demarcus, Jordyn & Hailey. They are my daily motivation. They teach me more than I could ever teach them…unconditional love, tenacity and heart! ❤️
