We had the good fortune of connecting with Deidre Baker – Roberson and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Deidre, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
My thought process was connected to a pull in my gut and my spirit. My mind had to align because it was thinking of fearful thoughts. I actually start to speak to my mind and shift in the direction of the pull in my gut and spirit. 1. I began to do research. 2. Budget my business. 3. Create a product. 4. Market the product 5. Pray and lets see how this goes. That was my first process. 

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
My creativity is displayed in creative art form of BLING! Ordinary items hand decorated with pearls, rhinestones, crystals and glitter. My items catch the eyes of everyone! The exciting part is others response to holding and looking at the items I create. The whoooo’s and Wow’s, is what makes it so exciting. Hard work and consistency has brought me to the place I am today. The love and support of family and friends really kept me going. This business came easy, because it is something I love to do and I am full of passion about My Hand Candy LLC.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I will take my friend to Atlanta!!! We will eat at Big Daddy’s, some good Soul Food. Then we will go shopping at Lenox Mall, walk off the food. A day of relaxation at the JuJu Spa. Go to Krab Kings Seafood and dance all night at Suite 800.
