We had the good fortune of connecting with The Pooses Kourtney, Markeitha, Danyel and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi The Pooses, where are your from? We’d love to hear about how your background has played a role in who you are today?
If you didn’t know there are three of us. All of us come from very different backgrounds but pretty much the same upbringing. Baby Poos is a military brat that lived in various states and countries. Goofy Poos and Stingy Poos are both from the east side of Atlanta. Being that we all grew up in single parent homes, our mothers raised and taught us how to be strong black women. We’d like to believe our mothers gave us the knowledge to be independent go getters. They have impacted us from childhood to adults. We are who we are because of them.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
Three women not being ashamed of who we are and the rawness of our conversation is what sets us apart from others. What excites us is continuing to stick to our mission statement, which is empowering women to feel comfortable with themselves, and we remain true to one another. Is being one of The Pooses easy? Again, Hell NO!, we still bump heads professionally and personally because we are two husbands and a wife. LOL! Its hard having three very strong minds come to one common ground sometimes. At this point we run on a 2 out of 3 vote and that has helped us make quicker and more rational decisions. Our podcast has opened us up to us, if that makes sense. We are still learning how to communicate effectively with one another but we have come a long way. The world needs to know PoosTalk supports everyone we just advocate for the women.
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?
Eat and Party! Its crazy because we always plan week long extravaganzas for our birthdays, so here is what we did one year. This is for Atlanta! Monday_ Fogo De Chao Night: Tongue and Groove, or Magic City Tuesday – Los Arcos (stone mountain) Night: Anywhere in the city $2 Tuesday Wednesday – LIPs (Atlanta, Drag show) Night: MJQ Thursday- Stars and Strikes (bowling) Night: Dudleys if you want to get ratchet Food trucks all night Friday- Pick a random restaurant Night: Opera Night Club or District for the rave Saturday: Day parties all through the city depending on the weekend or a festival Night: Compound Atlanta/ Central Station after hours Sunday: Cascade and Boogaloo for the day party Night: depends if we have the energy
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
The people who have supported since day one, what we call the Pooses and Petes, they deserve all the recognition. Its not one particular person we want to point out, but the day ones as a whole.
