We had the good fortune of connecting with Precious Williams and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Precious, any advice for those thinking about whether to keep going or to give up?
I’m going to keep it all the way 100 …..
How you going to give up if you never seen your mother give up? How you going to give up when you grew up in the hood? IT’S JUST NOT AN OPTION! You keep going to make yourself, your family and your community proud. You give the kids in the community something to look up to.
I came from a single parent household. My mom and our village made sure that I didn’t miss any opportunities. So in honor of my mother and my grandmother and my village I’m going to keep striving to do what they say we can’t to!
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?
I always wanted a boutique. I’ll start then quit. However, once I got laid off from my dream company I decided to become an entrepreneur. I started Preshtique & Accessories in June 2019. It has not been easy! I have definitely have endured my own trials and tribulations. No blueprint, no ment0r. My success just comes from finding my way, keeping faith, self encouragement and being fearless. Be sure to tap in with us on IG @preshtique for exclusive fashion.
In June 2021, I decided to scratch two goals off my list. That was expand my brand and start Preshtique Kennel. For the love of my little fur baby King Kash, my 2 year old Yorkie I decided to “make families happy again” with small breeds! I’m just at the point where I’m expanding! Preshtique is an upcoming brand. Make sure you follow us on IG @preshtique_kennel
My other goal was to start pouring into my own people. I want to see more African American millionaires. So I started Atl Female Hustler with my business partner CeCe. It’s a networking group! We host pop up shops every month and we’ll be putting together other events in the near future. If you have a second check us out on IG @atl_femalehustlers
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
To be honest, I’m still social distancing! The pandemic was surreal. Atlanta is growing. I have a ton of things I would like to do! The Atlanta Peach Roll and Ponce City Market looks like a whole VIBE!
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I dedicate this shoutout to my MOTHER, my late grandmother, my entire family, Big Brothers Big Sisters program, FBLA, my incredible teachers in business academy at the GREAT Booker T Washington (04 – 08) and soooo many more organizations!
Thank you for guiding & believing in me, Thanks for being that great example!
