We had the good fortune of connecting with Eustacia Cobb and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Eustacia, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
At the time I was working for a well known local business in St Peters Missouri and I thought to myself, I can do this. I had worked as soon as I was old enough to do so but I didn’t pursue either of my dream careers. I was making what I thought was good money but with that being said I knew that was only my cut. So I was definitely driven by bringing in more money.
What should our readers know about your business?
Like New is something I stand behind. We transform people’s lives. They trust that we are here for them in ways that others would see as vulnerability. It took me over a year to get things going back in 2007. I’ve lost relationships, friends and clients along the way. However, the knowledge and respect that I’ve gained was worth it! Now in 2020 we’re a household name in Houston. It’s not about my story anymore, it’s the people’s testimony!!!
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
First thing we would do is drop the top on the Mustang and I’d give them a tour with the wind blowing through our hair. The big city lights of downtown is my go to on the first day. Pappasitos is a must have. Home of fajitas and margaritas! Rock N Sandwiches Foodtruck in Midtown for Italian sandwiches and dressed fries. Little Woodrows also in Midtown. They have a patio bar with TVs and local beers and IPAs on tap. We would have to check out of the largest mall in houston, the Galleria, and right next to it is the man made waterfall.
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?
Collectively I have not one but many people to thank for constantly being supportive. My clients that are like family to me have guided me, put me in touch with all the right people and uplifted me when I needed it the most. My good friend Telisha Wagner convinced me to keep my business going when I relocated to Houston. I’ve been blessed.
