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

Hi CeCe, have there been any changes in how you think about work-life balance?
Hello, Owner Of Clueless Boutique , Cece B, Some call me Rell. I find that with the right company, it’s pretty simple to balance life and work. When I enjoy what I do, it doesn’t feel like a work. am always sure that when at home, my family gets my attention first. I take time on my off days to run my business, focus on ads and marketing, and new business strategies. I take time on the weekends to do things for myself and ensure that I regenerate before the work week begins. My life of course changes day by day, I find that using my journal to schedule daily activities helps me keep my balance.

What should our readers know about your business?
The name of my boutique clueless is most definitely inspired by the movie ,and character ‘Cher ‘. I loved how confident she was in her own fashion. Clueless Boutique also allows its community to always feels confident and included. We cater to anyone who has an affinity for fashion. Regardless of shape, personal style, or gender. Everyday Business is not easy! You have to stay on the new trends, videos, ideas. So to get were I am today , there are a lot of late nights ;staying up to talk to vendors, creating content after homework with the kids etc. Keep pushing hard. Use your journal to mark down important dates , stay organized , give your self time to actually produce quality over quantity .
The most valuable lesson I learned over time is to always believe in yourself! It is extremely easy to talk your self out of something, but you can never talk yourself into it!!! Speak positive over everything you touch or think of! And if you actually want to do it! You must Water it to watch is grow!
What I want the world to know about my business ;Is that we are just getting started there will be more to come from Clueless Boutique in the fashion industry.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I live in Atlanta baby! HAHA , there is always something to do and see. Because I am a mother and wife , I hang outside mostly on the weekend with my husband and children. Some of the spots we choose to catch on date nights are, suite Food Lounge rooftop, a great place to catch crab legs and hookah on a Wednesday. Escobar’s ,or The Blaq Haus for a brunch.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would like to credit my success to my mother inlaw. Lateasha Blackwell of Kay-las Boutique , When I first started dating her son back in 2011 she dreamed of owning her on business, buy 2012 she was running her own clothing website. She always expressed to me, that I too could run my own business and to just give it a shot. Well in the fall of 2018 Lateasha purchased my first load of sweat suits. I felt so over whelmed! Who am I going to sell to, what should I do after this. She answered so many question along the way , stills helps me to this day with everyday hacks and tricks. and it is too her that I owe the success of my business for inspiring me to begin something I would have never dreamed of.
