We had the good fortune of connecting with Meme Butler and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Meme, what do you want your legacy to be?
I want people to remember me as being the most hustling female that they’ve ever known. I want people to remember my drive and ambition and how I never would give up on anything I start. I want people to know that the most important quote to me is “Never stop improving”, because there is always room for growth and improvement.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
My current career position is in aviation. I am a flight attendant for a major airline and I love my job dearly! I am also working on my private pilot’s license, so that I can have another skill under my belt and possibly become a black female commercial pilot in the coming years. Although it was hard to obtain my position as a flight attendant, I did everything that I could to make sure that I got hired at my dream airline. I have learned many lessons along the way — mostly how to deal with people from other backgrounds and cultures. This job is very eye-opening and I learn something new, every time I board a flight! I like to tie my career into my brand because my brand’s message is all about following your passion and traveling the world, is truly MY passion.
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.
If my best friend was to come to my home city for a week, I would first start out with a nice brunch. I would head to buckhead, probably South City Kitchen, and have brunch with her. Next, we would go to the mall and shop a little. After that, we would find some nice bars in Buckhead to continue drinking, lol. This would more than likely go into the evening, so that we can have a fun night out. The following days we would definitely check out a few museums and historic sites in the city, and even visit some national parks and waterfalls. I would end her week with a bestie’s massage and winery visit. 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?
There are many people who deserve a shoutout in my interview! But, I would like to personally shoutout my 2 sisters, Mecca and Madison. They are so supportive of my businesses and have always been there when I needed help. A book that has helped me out a lot is Think & Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill. This is an amazing book, that I feel everyone should read!
