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

Hi Taija, why did you pursue a creative career?
Growing up I’ve have always been into art and crafts. Always loving making things from Scratch I also includes baking and being in paint whenever I have free time from school I will always have a notebook and draw.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
My craft is that I make homemade products. My products are for natural and non-naturals , all types of skin textures I tend to make things that are for your skin ,for your hair , Jewelry, clothes , and hair . it’s all the same like everybody but everybody’s always gonna be the same it’s always going to be a market that everybody’s on the same thing what makes you different is having a drive behind your business that sets you apart from others no matter how many people sell it still create it

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?
My favorite spots in Atl are Taco Mac to eat or any small businesses which there are a lot . Places to have fun are bowling, fun spot , nitro zone , AMC movie theater , and ponce city market

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Starting off my business it was kind of rough but it was worth it yeah most businesses have downfalls during the beginning of their time starting but during my downfall I had a support with my mom and grandmother my brother but I’ve had to support a family also my fiancé but what gets me is while they’re pushing me to continue my business when I wanted to give up they wouldn’t allow me and I thank them for the support because everyone knows you can’t shut down a creative mind it only just comes up with more ideas
