We had the good fortune of connecting with Chiron Beavers and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Chiron, looking back, what do you think was the most difficult decision you’ve had to make?
The most difficult decision that I ever had to make was trusting myself. I had made decisions in the past that were unsuccessful in business. Not only trusting myself; but having the confidence that I could own a successful business. I had to trust that the God-given gifts and talents that I possess, were my purpose. And I had to believe wholeheartedly in those gifts. After gaining that mindset; I then knew that I had to go hard, with no limits to obtain success.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
I got to this place of success and balance in business through a lot of self-educating, networking and seeking mentorship from other successful entrepreneurs. I have had to constantly push myself and adhere to may long days and nights. It definitely hasn’t been easy. It has taken me 10 years to find my stride. And to have consistency in my business practices and operations. I overcame my challenges in business by prayer, seeking knowledge and aligning myself with a circle of successful entrepreneurs. I also realized that I had to push passed any sources that interfered with my focus and determination. This is the 5th year of the FABSNetwork and I am so excited about my new location in Orlando, Florida; which launched in December of 2020. I will be launching my Charlotte, NC location in the Spring of this year. My vision is to have a location in every major city in the country. And it looks like God has heard my call. One of the biggest lessons that I learned in business is to not be concerned with what people thought or said in my business decisions. I saw that I could not allow what others thought about me or their opinions to change or sway what I felt what right for my company. I want the world to know that a little girl from Southwest Atlanta overcame circumstances that many hadn’t survived. I want to be known as a giver. A person that lives to bless others with inspiring them with my story and helping women entrepreneurs to obtain success. The FABSNetwork was created to uplift, inspire, empower and serve women of color in their aspirations for success as woman and as an entrepreneur. That’s a huge part of my legacy.
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 bestie were coming into my city; the beautiful heart of Atlanta I would have a host of things to see and do. I would make sure that we go to downtown Atlanta and see the marvelous skyline. We have to visit Centennial Park, the Aquarium, The Coke Museum, Civil Rights Museum, The Fox Theatre, Get some wings at Dugans, the Football Hall Of Fame, Botanical Gardens Piedmont Park, The Skywheel and then head over to Auburn Avenue for some delicious soul food and visit the King Center. We have to take a swing by the infamous AU Center and all of the historic landmarks and eateries. By the time the week ends, my bestie will have been officially christened as a true Atlantan. Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
God deserves ALL of the credit for where I am today in life and in business. Next, My father (Arthur Beavers) and his beautiful wife (Jackie Beavers) whom I affectionately know and love as my Mom; for never giving up on me. For their prayers, support and grace in some major detours in my life. My 5 sons Jay, Jordan, Aaron, JaQuan and Devin, deserve a shout out for loving me through it all. Lastly, Joyce O’Neal for warring in the spirit with and for me.
