We had the good fortune of connecting with Tierra Long and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Tierra, how has your background shaped the person you are today?
I was born in Salisbury, North Carolina. Salisbury is a small town in North Carolina most people call “Old People’s Town”. There is fairly few opportunity here especially for people looking to do more than what society offers. Living in Salisbury, North Carolina gave me two options. I can either settle or I can chase my dreams. It has definitely taught me to be humble! No matter how successful I become I always remember where I came from.
What should our readers know about your business?
I am a multi business owner. I own a fashion brand called The Doll Factory Luxury Fashion Boutique which is a clothing boutique specialize for women ages 18 through 40. The Doll Factory Boutique sets us apart from other competitors because of our High Quality, High Fashion trends, and Unique Pieces. I also own a Real estate investment firm “Long Realty LLC”. I created this company after becoming a Real Estate Investor and realized this is my calling! Investing to build wealth for generations! Both of these businesses started with an idea and a detailed business plan. Being a successful entrepreneur is not easy and requires hard work however the hard work will pay off! I’ve overcame obstacles of not having support and not having the proper education in order To run a successful business so it is very important to take the time to research find your target audience and adjust as many times as you need to to find out what works for you. I’ve learned that ambition, dedication, customer service and consistency will take you a long way! I want people to know that if I can be successful you Can too, just put in the work and everything else will fall into place!
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.
If my friends were coming into town and coming to visit me I would definitely take them to Charlotte. Charlotte is a big city and there are many things and places you can go to have fun. I would definitely go to a strip where there would be a variety of different things we could check out as far as restaurants lounges, clubs,events, and more. I love the epic center in Charlotte because it looks like an outside mall that has everything all in one place!
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Support and mentorship has given me that extra push in my life and with my Businesses! My support system includes my family and friends, many late nights watching motivational YouTube videos and audio books of successful people and Millionaires. One of my favorite inspirational, powerful and Motivational book to read is “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill.
I would like to thank Avnah Davis Long for referring me to Shoutout Atlanta!
