We had the good fortune of connecting with LG Bazile and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi LG, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
Initially, when I first got to college at 17 years old, I had no clue what I wanted to do career wise. It was like, I was forced to choose what I wanted to do for the rest of my life , although I was only a teenager. When I finally picked a major and started taking classes , I realized how unhappy I was and knew that was not the route I wanted to take. After getting the full college experience and even going on to get my Master’s degree, I realized there were plenty of ways to make money outside of the traditional 9-5 and I was determined to do that myself.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
My craft is something I take 100% seriously. It has evolved over the years and it has never been easy. Recently , I started a YouTube channel, which is my main focus, but I am always doing something to showcase my art is many ways. I have creatively directed a few projects/music videos. I have partnered with an Atlanta based magazine company to produce a podcast. I have have done brand ambassador work, modeling, etc.. Essentially, I have done many things to showcase my creative talent.. Although , I have faced many challenges in between. Finding your purpose is never an easy task and I’d be lying if I said , I have it all figured out. I still face obstacles everyday , from fear to doubting myself constant. but I know with God on my side I can conquer them all. I let my work speak for myself and take my brand very seriously. I take my time to make sure every thing is carefully planned out before showcasing my art to the world!
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Living in Atlanta , it’s almost impossible to get bored . If my best friend was to come into town, I’d definitely take them all around the city to all of the tourist areas. We’d probably start at TrapHouse, World Of Coke, Aquarium ,etc… also, Atlanta has sooo many food options , I wouldn’t even know where to begin. Obviously, we will end the night with a section or something at a lounge. Can’t come to ATL without experiencing the night life!
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
There are plenty of people who have helped and encouraged me throughout my journey. Outside of my family, I have a solid team behind me . My videographer ,Armani definitely has done a lot to ensure my vision comes true . I also have friends who push me to be the greatest version of myself I can be.
