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

Hi Rakeisha, why did you decide to pursue a creative path?
As a boutique owner and the host of a podcast, I’m able to tap into my artistic nature. I believe it’s so invigorating to think and act outside of the box. With my boutique customers I adore the time spent with them creating new images for themselves, assisting them in embracing new fashions, and creatively that fills me up along with the process of shopping for inventory. As for my podcast, I’m able to let my comedic and over the top nature flow freely and entertain my listeners.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I consider myself to be a creative. I’m the host of a podcast , The Libra Lounge with Keisha, and I’m also the owner of Sassy Class Boutique. Breaking into both industries is tough. There are so many avenues to sell clothes and in regards to the podcast you are literally competing with celebrity podcasters and anyone with an iPhone who post a video and it goes viral. I’m passionate about making people better after being around me than they did before. I take pleasure in assisting my boutique customers in finding clothes that compliment them and make them feel sassy. My podcast is about me saying the things that many others wish they could say.

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?
Houston and its surrounding areas are amazingly filled with the arts, phenomenal dining, shopping, sports, and culture. I would entertain a friend by going to The Houston Museum of Fine Art. They have fantastic exhibits including Van Gogh exhort which is currently running. For lunch, we would zip right on over to Kenny and Ziggy’s and walk off some of those lunch calories by shopping at The Galleria. I would end the day by with a show in the Theater district

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Hands down my #1 supporter is my husband James. His dedication has given me the wings to pursue all my dreams.
