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

Hi Tiffaney, what’s your definition for success?
I’ll start with what I don’t define success as, which is monetary gain without fulfillment. Many very successful people have various definitions of success. The three that I relate most to are: “Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it,” quoted by Maya Angelou. Next is that “Success is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm,” by Winston Churchill. Lastly, Michelle Obama wrote about Former President Obama, “For Barack, success isn’t about how much money you make. It’s about the difference you make in people’s lives.” To me, success is a mix of all three of these very powerful and impactful quotes. I became a bartender as a way to serve people while celebrating very special events. Nonetheless, my aspirations in life are a lot more complex than simply bartending and business ownership. I am pro volunteer/charity work and I view the time that I spend preparing food boxes or cleaning up after an event as success. For me, being able to genuinely do for and/or give back to others is the most important form of success because it provides me with an abundance of fulfillment and happiness that I feel would have been otherwise unattainable.

What should our readers know about your business?
The aspect of Pour’fect Bartending that I am the most proud of is that though it is currently a small business, the number of inquiries that I receive have exceeded my expectations. The thing that sets Pour’fect apart from other full-service mobile bartending companies is that we treat every customer as family so whether we are hired for a wedding, party, or dinner we thrive to consistently provide a personalized and professional service/experience. However, this does not come without its challenges and when they arise we think and work through them while remaining positive and knowing that we are one step closer to reaching our desired levels of success. I would like the world to know that we are here to serve in all capacities and that being apart of your events and celebrations is an honor.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Food & Drinks – STK – Ruth Chris Steakhouse – Juicy Crab (Fayetteville, GA) – BQE Restaurant & Lounge (Brunch) Nightlife | Hangout – Escobar – Boogalou Restaurant & Lounge – Sivas (Hookah & Drinks) Things to do | Places to go – Skyview Atlanta (Ferris Wheel) – The Battery Atlanta (Shopping +) – Ponce City Market

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would like to shoutout my amazing mom, Ursula. When I decided that I wanted to become a bartender, not only did she enroll me into bartending school at 18 but she has always been my biggest supporter, advocate, and teammate. When I become overwhelmed with orders or my ideas aren’t as clear as I’d like, she jumps in and helps without hesitation. I would just like her to know that I would not be the woman or professional that I am today without her love and guidance.
