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

Hi Kayla, looking back, what do you think was the most difficult decision you’ve had to make?
The most difficult decision i’ve ever had to make was sticking to what i know/ being complacent or taking a risk and moving to expand my brand

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 think what sets my brand apart from others is the way i Present my new styles, i like to display my new style of frames through a showcase event but not just a fashion show but a networking event for not only my brand but for others to expand their brand as well and for models to showcase their talent. I love to be able to give people networking opportunities to meet new people and also make money while doing it, it makes me feel trustworthy of being a creator when people reach out and want to be apart of networking opportunities created by me… its not easy putting together events some challenges I’ve endured is venue issues, stress, being overwhelmed or having little to no help to over come them i just take a deep breath and do as much as i can day by day until the event date arrives.. lessons I’ve learned along the way is everybody cannot come and that is OKAY you have to be okay with others not being on the same page as you or not expecting them to see your vision or taking their business as serious as you take yours, be okay with it and move on the VISION is yours and not everyone has to be apart.

Any great local spots you’d like to shoutout?
Hmmm i would take my bff to the spa castle in Dallas just so we both can clear our minds, we all go through things and life/ business can get over whelming but the sound of waterfalls, fresh air and peace will help us clear our heads and prepare our mind for the next move/ business idea we both have in mind.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
1st and foremost God is who i wanna dedicate my shoutout to because he has brought me soo far and just keeps working even in the times i get discouraged he sends me the right people at the right time the right resources at the the right time and so forth …. also Keona Blunt who is my forever mentor she is more than amazing she is apart of an organization called girl code out in Atlanta Georgia, i think its so important for young entrepreneurs to have mentorship
