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

Hi Larekha, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
My thought process when i started my business was just like jump out here and do it , we see aspiring businesses everyday and i want to work for my self doing something i love and can call off when i want . I wanted to be my own boss

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I stand out from everyone because I’m so young. I Graduated high school at 16 and finished college with an associate degree in criminal justice at 18 . Being young around older people you have higher expectations and standards set for you . I fell off sometimes but i picked myself right back up and kept going despite the bad happening . Along the way the lessons I’ve learned is to stay focused and motivated and be around people who want to elevate and do better . Stay around people who all ways wants more from life ! I want the world to recognize from my brand that no matter how old you are whatever you put your heart and focus to you will succeed, even if this means losing friends who aren’t really genuine . Do what makes you happy ,

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
My friend and I would go to fancy restaurants in the Houston heights area , we like to ride horses in frills of land . Having fun in the house with some drinks and card games is also a nice fun thing to do with my friends . Looking around site seeing the downtown Houston area is amazing

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I want to shoutout my mom for believing in whatever i wanted to do . Never doubting me whatever plan i have if i like she loves it . But most importantly my oldest sister, Demi I watched my sister have nothing behind her name and turn it into a business and has her LLC . She Rents her cars and does air bnb. She doesn’t even know that she is the one i look up to and it made me just wake up one morning and dive into what i was interested in
