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

Hi Indira, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
Starting your own business can be very rewarding. But it’s definitely a challenge. When I made the jump from being a corporate executive to an entrepreneur, I found my new role to be challenging but it’s also been so worth it because it enables me to make my own schedule while still doing all the things I enjoy. Here is my thought process behind starting my business… Do not quite your day job yet…
Be sure to network don’t be afraid to reach out there!
Build up your saving account/fatten up your emergency fund with at least enough cash to cover your living expenses for eight to 12 months and your business expenses for four to six months. Remember that it’s better to overestimate your costs rather than risk not saving enough to give your business a chance to work.
Write down your business plan; it is always good to put your thoughts on paper.
Finally do your research!

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?
If I had a friend visit me in Houston I’d take them to the different food places Houston has to offer, of course a Texas BBQ spot, Tex-Mex, Turkey Leg Hut, Lucille’s, Bosscat Kitchen & Libations, Grace’s and Steak48 to name a few. What I like about Houston is that we have so many food options… I’d try my best to show them a good time. For a club/night out for drinks I’d take them to KAMP, Atomic bottle, or Lost & Found to name a few black owned establishments. Maybe midtown for a different vibe to bar hop. Lastly maybe hit a gym session, horse back riding & go to the gun range, or maybe take a quick trip to ATX.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
What drives me everyday is my family and loved ones. But specially my significant other who has invested in me so that I can start my business.. My father who I have watched at a young age hustle and create a name for himself. He himself is also a entrepreneur that created his own business from the ground up. My father is someone I admire the most and the reason behind my will to create a name/business of my own. Lastly I want to give recognition to The Most High who has blessed me with this life.
