We had the good fortune of connecting with Krystal Turpeau-Ricks and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Krystal, do you have any habits that you feel contribute to your effectiveness?
Consistency has contributed to my success. Staying focused and not comparing myself to other brands. Sending frequent emails to costumers/potential customers, utilizing social media for customer engagement, and never stopping engagement regarding my business.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
What sets me apart from others, I would say is my Faith. I stand firm on what God says and I believe it. We were not placed on earth to exist, we were placed here to LIVE! God says “trust in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart.” Graceful Couture is my desire and with the right effort I will receive overflow! This mindset has gotten me where I am today with my business. Has it been easy ? No. Has it been worth it? Definitely. I’ve overcome challenges by not taking no for an answer and by continuing to push harder. I’ve learned and been able to physically view that with God 1st ALL things are possible. I want the world to know every business starts off small but it depends on you and what your willing to accept or what you are going to determine for destiny! Graceful Couture will see you at the top!

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 someone has a friend visiting town they should definitely take them to The Turkey Leg Hut, Taste Bar, and Phil and Derek’s for good food, music, and good vibes! A few good hangout spots(evening/ late night) would be Kamp, Atomic Bottle, and Seaside Lounge. Downtown Houston also has lots of art murals including George Floyd and Selina.
