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

Hi Sammie, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
My first thought process was that I did not naturally fit in the 9-5pm work routine because I am at the core hugely creative.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I am Currently the lead Pastor of Vision Los Angeles the Chief Operations officer for United Progressive Pentecostal Church the VP Of Marketing for iElevate+ TV Network | Media Group

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?
If my best friend came to Los Angeles to visit me the first stop would be “Stuff I Eat” by LAX airport in Inglewood, CA. It is one of the best vegan restaurants in Southern California. Then we will take a drive to the beach under the blue skies, warm weather and palms with the drop top down living life to its fullest. We would have to go to Venice Beach, have lunch on Rodeo Drive overlooking the major luxury fashion brands and the posh car dealerships. The Hollywood walk of fame would be a must to find some of our favorite celebrities star. And of course shopping at the outlets, malls and the fashion district in downtown Atlanta

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?
Vision Los Angeles Partners in Southern California Bishop O.C. Allen and the Vision Family for the support and believing in me and my Dad and family
