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

Hi Stephanie, how does your business help the community?
My business has embarked on a new social impact journey by forming “Our Sole Purpose” Our Sole Purpose is a non-profit organization that aims to redefine the purpose of giving back. It’s A new style of giving back to fulfilll a greater purpose.

The Our Sole Purpose Foundation is an organization with a primary goal of global philanthropy. Our utmost focus is to fuel our culture in emerging market countries with the knowledge and resources to strive in education, business, finance, health and social empowerment. Utilizing a worldwide community of supporters, we strategically invest in vital organizations that work to empower our culture.

We are foot soldiers for the culture, giving a new style to giving back.

My brand and its extensions is focused on more than a savory brand positioning recipe. We’re also focused on community and sustainability. And how the two support one another. I created my brand as a shared global community for Creative entrepreneurs and innovators. My ultimate goal is to work with others around the world to transform the media industry and create a more sustainable and diverse operations. My team and I have accomplished a lot with our brand restructure during the height of the global pandemic.We have garnered the support of many notables and executives. I’m excited about what is to come.

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.
Now this one lol! I love a good chill spot with a great aesthetic. I’m trying to eat healthier these days but for starters each morning we would go to Gocha’s Breakfast Bar. Get some exercise in at The Loft. I would make sure we attended whatever dope events were happening. Lunch and dinner is such an indecisive time because there are so many great black-owned places. Escobar Seafood is a go to definitely.

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 that deserve a shout out. The biggest one is to my spiritual mentors, Apostle Marvin Smith and Dr. Cindy Trimm. They guided me spiritually in ways only God could design. Because of this type of mentorship I was able to stay grounded and push forward in purpose.
