We had the good fortune of connecting with Maia Berry and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Maia, what is the most important factor behind your success?
The most important factor behind the success of my brand is the fact that it is built on pouring positivity & confidence into the lives of brown girls worldwide. Shop Choco Girls is more than just a t shirt brand. Its a safe place for black girls. They can openly say what and how they feel without being judged or looked down upon and that’s why my brand is successful. It’s about the positive impact that I continuously have on the lives of girls worldwide. A lot of brands measure their success by the amount of sales they make, but my results and success is measured on how I positively impact the lives of others.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
What sets Shop Choco Girls apart from other brands is the fact that we are purpose-focused and purpose-driven. It’s a t shirt brand, but the statements made are bold and loud. I think the one thing that has brought me thus far in business is consistency. It is far from easy, especially when things don’t go as planned or don’t work out in your favor. But, you have to stay consistent regardless of any obstacles that you face. One of the biggest lessons that I’ve learned along the way is that everything happens according to God’s divine timing. You just do your part and let God do the rest. What I’d like the world to know about my brand is that we’re only going to grow and get bigger and better. Longevity is key.
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?
I would say that Starlight Drive In Movie & Shaking Crab in Mcdonough are probably my favorite places.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I would like to dedicate this shoutout to all of the girls who support me. If you shop, comment, like, or interact with my brand in anyway possible, Thank you.
