We had the good fortune of connecting with Maria Dix and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Maria, what role has risk played in your life or career?
Life is about taking risks, that’s how you succeed and learn lesson. So definitely risks play a big role in my life because if I don’t try, I’’ll never know what could’ve been.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Atlanta is such a beautiful city I love, so I would definitely suggest a morning walk at Betline. A trail surrounded by art, restaurants, and coffee places to hang out. Then lunch at Ponce City market, this place has home and clothing stores and the best noodle restaurant and an amazing bar and game area at the roof with a beautiful view of the city. Finally an evening walk or scooter ride at Piedmont park, the pettiest urban park in the city.

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?
My family is my biggest support and my friends and the community I have built through social networks are my motivation to create and inspire others.
