We had the good fortune of connecting with Kayla McGlory and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Kayla, what’s the most important thing you’ve done for your children?
R & B Charcuterie was founded off the strength of I want to leave a legacy for my children.
R stands for Roman, 1.5 years old + B is for Brody, 3 years old.
Both of my parents are extremely hard working people who’ve built a comfortable life working in Corporate America.
I can never recall my parents doing anything but working diligently my entire childhood, I applaud both of them for that. Corporate America just started caring about work life balance, paid paternity leave etc..so I can’t imagine how ruthless things were back then.
Mothering 2 boys had me thinking, what will my kids remember about my morals, my dreams/hobbies, what I supported/stood for all while growing up under my roof.
I want to display to my boys that there is nothing too far out of reach, no matter what it looks like. I get up religiously and give my 9-5 my all, dedicate my time to pouring into our home + of course lay a brick or two each day to Build up my small business.
The legacy I hope to leave my boys isn’t based around wealth; our legacy is centered around character.
I want them to believe in themselves way earlier in life than I did. I want them to truly believe they can make something out of nothing because they witnessed it up close and personal from their Mamma.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
R & B Charcuterie is built off love and dedication. Each board is unique to its order. I love my clients! I’ve had the honor to provide luxury grazing to some of the dopest women! No celebration is complete without charcuterie.
When I face a creative block I just take a step back and remember why I started to begin with. Then everything starts flowing and I look up 30 minutes later like wow, this really turned out beautiful. But mentally I zone out, it’s so natural to me but also so new to me. This is about my legacy, it’s infinite, I’ll continue to sprint this marathon no matter what.
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?
That’s hard for me because I’m naturally a homebody. I’d probably wine and dine at a restaurant called Testa Barra but that would be the extent of sight seeing.
I prefer to entertain or be entertained in a home setting.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
R&B Charcuterie wouldn’t be here without Roman & Brody, if that’s not the definition of recognition I don’t know what is. Their initials are my brand. Children have a real way of showing you who you are meant to be. My boys ignite a fire in me every day to hustle and but still be present at the same time.
