We had the good fortune of connecting with Nancy J. Lewis and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Nancy J., what do you attribute your success to?
The most important factor behind my success is my faith in God. As an entrepreneur, faith is necessary as you navigate the highs and lows of the entrepreneur life.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I am most excited about the fact that after 24 years of the entrepreneurial journey, I am still standing and I give God all the glory for keeping me grounded and anchored during difficult seasons on this journey. I am grateful that I have the gift of being a influencer and encourager for others. One of the things that separates me from others is my ability, wisdom and insight to pull gifts out of others that they already possess. I help them tap into more of their brilliance. A quote I often say that highlights this is, “You can’t see the frame when you are in the picture.” I am able to facilitate growth and development in others because I have a full view. Our business tag line is “Developing a Better You” which is making sure you are strong and sure in who you are from the inside out.

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?
Start off with a wonderful dinner at Ruth Chris Steakhouse followed by an intimate evening with some of our closest friends. Going to church to worship and then going to Pappadeaux to eat dinner and catching a movie. Going shopping to Tanger outlet and hanging out at a park later that day. Taking my best friend to some of the historic sites in the Atlanta area. Taking her to a restaurant with live jazz music and good food. Introducing her to some of my friends she doesn’t know and we do a movie girls night out. Taking her to Calloway Gardens & Stone Mountain. Hanging out at the pool or my deck relaxing and enjoying the good life. A night with friends at my home where we have game night.

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 mother, Vixie V. King is who is deceased was my greatest cheerleader who corrected, encouraged and instilled in me with God all things are possible. She was always there rooting for me as I navigated my career and now I know she is doing it from heaven.
