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

Hi Porsha, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?

I always have been in the beauty industry and decided to take my idea and career to another level, but I wanted to be very creative with my next move. I always wanted my own cosmetic line as a makeup artist. I knew my idea had to standout amongst other lines ! A year in as a flight attendant the thought came to me as I was on break in the air on airplane mode. “Aviation themed cosmetic line” I researched day in and out, no one has done this idea and I wanted to be the first to do it.  I thought of cute aviation names that flight crew use on the day to day bases.  I was so excited when my thoughts were coming into fruition. FLY COLLECTION COSMETICS offers matte lipsticks , lipgloss, lashes, liners, and Travel Essentials ! Soon expanding as a Travel Agency !! To this day, everyday I wake up  excited and motivated to enhance my cosmetic line !buckle your seat belts and Lets take off with FLY COLLECTION COSMETICS !

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?

The back story to my career is that I received my degree in rehabilitation services, and was a teacher for two years but soon realized that it wasn’t for me ! I always wanted to be my own boss and I love to work freely without being micromanaged. I always wanted to be a Flight Attendant, but I didn’t like the process lol it’s def like a pageant and I just don’t like that type of hiring process, but I put that fear behind me. My best friend sent me a link saying the airlines were hiring so I went through the process still grieving the death of my grandmother, it was tough but I did the interview and was selected.  My life changed tremendously after that ! I’ve always wanted my own lipstick line so creating it with the “ aviation themed “ was the idea I wanted for my brand so that it could stand out.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?

Haha wow ! So must to do in Atlanta ! First we’re going to a spa to relax and get a massage because sis I love my feet rubbed and I wear heels on a daily so it’s a must ! I’ll prob plan a cute girls picnic with wine! I’m a romantic friend haha. We will check out some dope spots for brunch ! I love Milk and honey, and Breakfast at Barney’s ! The food and the drinks are bomb. We def checking out the garden room for the views and getting some bomb content while we’re there.. lets not forget we grabbing hookah ! I love Pasha Atl Lounge for nice night out with great drinks and hookah ! Of course there is sooo much more to do but that’s a cute girls weekend for me !
