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

Hi Autumn, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
I began The Comfy Rose Collection after giving birth to my daughter. I was going through postpartum depression and just trying to make sense of it all. COVID had just began and although I’ve always been a homebody, it is much harder when you CAN’T leave the house. I found that the only thing that gave me peace was taking my evening bath and looking forward to a nice set of pjs to put on. The relief that it gave me from my everyday life is what I wanted to offer to other moms. I knew The Comfy Rose Collection could provide just that.

What should our readers know about your business?
I am most proud of my consistency. I am super passionate about women, and moms especially feeling comfortable in their own skin. I believe that comfort starts at home! It is okay to show a little skin, I don’t care if it is flabby or discolored. When you love yourself, you have confidence and when you have confidence, you have respect. I love my brand and I believe that is why I’ve been able to come this far. Nothing about it has been easy but I commend myself for coming this far. Looking back, the challenges I faced seem so small compared to the women I have reached. Loving what I do makes it much easier to continue when times get hard, I have more women to reach; a world to save!

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?
I love eating so it’s kind of hard to pick one but I can definitely give my top 3 restaurants that I like to go eat and vibe at. I like Sivas Tavern, they offer good food. Their drinks are good plus they play great music and they even have hookahs. Harold’s Chicken and Ice Bar is another really cool spot, they offer all of the above but their menu is limited. Number 3 is more of a family/date ambiance but their food is always bomb, Copeland’s of New Orleans.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I owe a shoutout to my boss friend Kamiya of Amorous Savaj boutique. She was there for me through all of my questions, she often gave me advice and support to make it through. I’d like to attribute what I do know about marketing to Miya of Miya Burrus & CO. Upon beginning TCRC, she was beginning her marketing firm and led me through staying in touch with my audience. Miya also introduced me to Marketing by Monrae who has played a MAJOR part in my successes. I have taken many of her courses and even just following her on Instagram she drops gems daily and lots of motivational quotes that help when I may want to quit.
