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

Hi Alexia, what is the most important factor behind your success?
The most important factor behind my success has been motivation, consistency and passion. Motivation is what makes me feel invincible and keeps me driving the business. Consistency is what keeps me focused and dedicated to my goals. Being consistent has not been an easy journey as it required long term commitment, sustained efforts, sleepless nights and a lot of discipline. To me consistency is the difference between success and failure and being consistent can catapult you to the next level where you live out your wildest dreams. For any entrepreneur out there who wants to achieve maximum success consistency is KEY. Last, but not least success has come from my passion for design. I believe that not everyone really gets what passion is. Passion is far from a hobby its engrained in your body and soul. For me, when you are really happy doing something and you do not think twice about it, that is something your truly passionate about. When you have that level of obsession for something you add hard work and devotion to that mixture and WALLAH you will never have to work a day in your life.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
AYEE is an experience it is a brand that unlike others gives you a “feeling”. When we enter a home we are more than designers we are artists. organizers, and supporters of your vision. I am most proud of the expansion of brand and how much we have grown throughout the years. I am excited that our designs are surpassing our wildest dreams and we are being given the chance to showcase the talent and originality AYEE brings to the table. Getting to where we are today was not by far an easy journey, it was all a learning experience. When I think of how I got here I immediately want to say “It just happened” but it didn’t. Where I am today is not the result of coincidence but, rather divine timing and well earned raw hard work. It took many failures, Long hours, sleepless nights and pushing myself to never give up to finally reach that “sweet spot”. I overcame many challenges by staying positive and always keeping my mind and heart wide open to new experiences and new ways of reaching the same goals. I obtained growth from new prospectives, and I had to open myself up to everything I am capable of achieving and forget fear of failure and from there it was history. I want the world to know that AYEE empowers all clients to be bold, expressive and free. I have always wanted my clients to know that you can still have luxury designs on YOUR budget its all about QUALITY.

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?
If my bestfriend was visiting the area I would want to show them all the rich art Atlanta has to offer. I would plan lunch at le colonial where the designs are conversational and cuisine is immaculate. I would drink and hang out on the belt line where you get to connect with people, neighborhoods and try all sorts of creative dinning. Atlanta is a major center for all sorts of art contemporary, public and urban. The spaces you can find here are iconic we would definitely check out the botanical garden, private galleries and street art.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I have to recognize my Clients and My team. Without them I have no business and without their consistent efforts I would not be where I am today. To me, building relationships with people are EVERYTHING. People may forget what you sell or what your latest commercial or promotion looks like but, they will never forget how you make them feel and how they are treated. It is so important to me that each of my clients feel comfortable opening up their most sacred place on earth to me. Your home is your sanctuary and I feel blessed that people trust me enough to bring their visions to life and make their homes into what they have dreamed of. The loyalty of my clients has allowed me to build unimaginable connections and continue to grow AYEE. A business is only as good as its customers and employees, and my team has allowed me to thrive. They break their backs for the brand everyday with every project and I cannot thank them enough. They put heart and soul into everything they do and really understand my vision for the brand and share my passion for AYEE. My team has stood by me through the ups and downs and dedicated themselves to the overall success of the business. Their in it for the long haul and all I can say is “We made it”!
