We had the good fortune of connecting with Brit’tney Powell and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Brit’tney, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
I always had a job and some type of hustle on the side. Until one day I decided to make my hustle a legitimate business.

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?
My brand is Kay Couture. I have two storefront locations. One in Birmingham, Al and one in Montgomery,Al. It was not easy to be where I am today. There were so many obstacles that I had to overcome. A lot of people turned there nose to me and my accomplishments. I have had people Literally try to destroy me and my business but God and my determination kept me grounded. I’ve learned to keep my dreams and aspirations to myself. Everyone does not deserve an intimate relationship with you to know your inner workings. That should be between you and your prayer life. I am most proud of my brand making it into major stores such as Walmart

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 completely fell in love with the frost bistro ! Most celebrity restaurants don’t live up to the hype that they are, but the food was amazing! There wasn’t a long wait to receive food and it was hot and fresh and extremely pleasant to my taste buds!!!! Definitely the first place I would take them to visit!

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?
My children are the reason I push so hard! I want them to have the best life possible and to show them no matter what bumps in the road life may throw you, you still can make a great life for yourself
