Pretty & Powerful: Naddious Early

Naddious Early, 38yrs old, Owner of The Place

Q: How did you start within the profession you’re currently in & how long have you been in it?

I started my profession, because I was tired of looking and spending my money on other Venues. I have been in business since February 4, 2019.

Q: What has been the hardest part of what you do, that you make look Pretty easy?

The hardest part for me being in this profession is, getting out and speaking with the public about The Place. I’m more quiet and laid back, so speaking in public was out of my comfort zone. What keeps me thriving, is constantly gaining customers & I haven't had my grand opening. :)

Q: What has been your biggest achievement thus far, that you’re most proud of?

My biggest achievement is seeing, that I’m really doing this!! I prayed for this and the Lord answered my prayers!

Q: What would you say makes you Pretty & Powerful? What do most call on you for? (your superpower)

What’s make me Pretty & Powerful is, being able to fulfill people’s needs. Most call on me to see if The Place is available for their needs. Hearing them say, we really don’t have anything like this around here to hold an event. The warmness they feel when they walk into The Place.

Q. What advice would you give to someone that may be aspiring to enter into the profession or industry you’re in?

My advice to anyone that would like to become a business owner….. Pray first!! Ask the Lord to guide you in whatever you may desire. If it’s meant for you, it will happen. You have to have Passion and a Vision!! Put all your ideas on paper. Make sure this is what you want for the right reasons. Money can’t be the Main reason. It’s good, but your business won’t last if it’s not your Passion or your Calling!!

Q: On a transparent level, name a moment when you almost gave up on your success journey, but found the momentum & power to move forward?

I never really had the desire to give up. I almost lost patience in the location I’m currently at. I started looking at this building in January of this year. I felt I was getting the run around about the building. I prayed and claimed it, and WALA…. I’m HERE!!!

Q. What projects are you working on; that you can share & where do you see yourself in the next 3-5 years?

I’m currently working on a lot right now. I’m working on bringing vendors out to show their Magic, hosting a Trap & Paint, Back to School Giveaway and my Thanksgiving Dinner, serving the community. In 3-5 years I see myself with a thriving business and looking forward to opening The Place 2!!

Q: In closing what Powerful profound message would you leave to other fellow Pretty & Powerful females climbing the ladder to success?

Keep climbing ladies… Don’t allow anyone or anything keep you from GOING UP!!
