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

Hi Lila, how do you think about risk?
I believe risk is………. “You Taking A Chance On You!”

My entire life is based off of risks. In my career I had to make a decision to choose me.
Before starting my business I was working a job for 2 1/2 years and literally going nowhere fast! I was unhappy and unfulfilled. But at the time it was bringing in a steady pay check, but I knew I was worth more. I juggled with the idea of starting my own company for months. I consulted other entrepreneurs, my mentor and even prayed about it.

When it was all said and done I realized, I just had to do it…….JUST JUMP!

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
Lily’s Life Juice uses 100% Raw Ingredients. We pride ourselves on using substance that’s created directly from the earth. Many people believe that healthy has to be nasty and unappealing but through our products healthy is enjoyable, tasty & fun!

This business was birthed in a time that the world was in pure chaos and uncertainty was on the horizon.
Lily’s Life Juice was Est. 08/2020 were the importance of health was a tremendous factor.
We reached out to our community and they reached back.

Running a business has its challenges like anything else in life. Like the saying says, “Anything worth having is worth fighting for.” We’ve had to persevere through every obstacle and challenge. We’ve learned to never give up and hold the vision.
The only way your dream fails is if you give up……..And we are no where near quitting!!!

We’ve learned that a business is just like your baby, you have to grow it. Spend time with it, love it, take care of it in ways that no one else will or it’ll wither and die out. If you put in the effort and hard work your business will grow and blossom into the vision that you hold in your heart.

We are honored to be able to serve our community and endeavor to serve the world!

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
First and foremost we would hit the gym for a great workout! Once that’s over we would replenish ourselves with Breakfast & Brunch at Grace’s in Houston. I love seeing the sites so I would give a tour around the Houston area so that they could see all the wonderful pieces of art that lye hidden in the city. Have lunch at a taco resturant in the museum district. Head over to Space City Rock Climbing for a little adventure and end the night with some fine dining at Vic & Anthony’s.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
#1 God gets all the Glory!!! Shoutout to Jesus because without Him I am nothing!

I am so thankful for the unconditional love & support of my mentor/pastor Prophetess Charmaine Holman who I confide in greatly. Without your guidence this road would be difficult to travel.

I’m beyond greatful for my children because they are my reason. They have kept me going when I wanted to give in.

I’m so blessed to have an amazing family that supports me and believes in me.

Thank You All!
