We had the good fortune of connecting with Alencia Knight and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Alencia, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
Wow, this is such a interesting question. I honestly enjoyed seeing the full picture after working on mini projects for my kids parties. My guests who came encouraged me to consider it and get paid for it. Little did I know how much money was required to put into a business. Finally it clicked and I accepted my first paid event for a 1st birthday and I had a ball and to see my client happy made me realize I could get paid to do something else besides nursing that brought me joy.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
K Fab Creations is luxury event planning and design company. We specialize in collaborating with our clients and their vision to curate a eye appealing experience for our clients and their guests. What we are most proud of is that we have built a amazing rapport with our clients that allows them to include us in all of their milestone events in their life. Most of all our clients are word of mouth which we love to hear. The event industry is billion dollar industry and it is constantly evolving which will always keep you on your toes. This business is no easy walk in the park by a long shot but I can say that my faith in God has definitely been my source of strength. Also my family, friends and my mentor have helped me navigate all the uncharted waters.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
My favorite part of the city is probably the Ponce market so we would start there then have a little fun at the skyline. We would probably have dinner at 5 Church restaurant then go have drinks at the Garden Room.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I want to give a shoutout to my family especially my awesome husband who has been so supportive and always creating a space for me to go after it all. Also to my family, cousins and friends who have pushed me to go for it from way back when K Fab was just a thought. A huge thank you to my mentor Morneque Ramos of Sugar City Designs based in Miami, who spent countless time grooming me to be a better business woman and to fully appreciate my worth.
