We had the good fortune of connecting with Kristal and Tanisha and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Kristal and, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
When we decided to start our podcast She Laughs, we felt there wasn’t enough transparency in the faith community. Our thought was that more Believers and Non-Believers needed a more accurate depiction of what a faith-based journey looked like while we were in the process of discovering it ourselves. We wanted to dispel the myth that Believers only lean on the knowledge of Christ through out elders. It’s important that each person gain a personal encounter and develop it from there.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
We feel that our transparency and vulnerability are what set us apart. Religion is a topic many do feel comfortable discussing so that can make them closed off. We’ve seen the impact of the topics we discuss and how honest we are about them, through the interaction with our followers. We get lots of comments and DM’s about how our openness has helped others feel emboldened to speak their truth as well.
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?
We don’t go out much. We throw gatherings with friends we like to call Kickbacks. For food we use our sister’s company SW Austin Caters. She handles not only the food but also the cakes! She does some of the decorating as well. Our brother is responsible for the vibes, thats Avian “DJ Good Guy Fresh” Day. If we decide to go out we like going to Cigaros of Georgia for a few drinks and enjoy some cigars. We also enjoy the atmosphere at Top Golf. Oh and Monterrey Roswell has bangin Birria tacos! 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?
