We had the good fortune of connecting with Tiffanie Smith and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Tiffanie, how do you think about risk?
Risk taking has played a major role in the path of my life and overall career! A lot of individuals are afraid of taking risks for many reasons. However I feel risk taking is imperative if you want to fulfill your full true potential in life. I am a great example. July of last year was when I decided to take a leap of faith and start my marketing business – Tiffanie Mishelle & Co, LLC. Before then, I was working in the corporate world in the marketing field. I was not happy, felt like I was settling, living check to check along with getting passed over for a promotion. I moved on to what I thought was a “higher” position at another company until the pandemic hit, where I was then laid off and unemployed. During this time, the thought of launching a business entered my mind. It was something I had always wanted to do but was a huge “risk,” which is why it remained an idea. I decided to take that risk and ultimately doing so has led me to my success now. Your dreams are never too far away if you go after them.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?

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?
I would like to shout out my longtime boyfriend Jeremy Johnson! He has been my number 1 supporter in pushing me to start my business while motivating and inspiring me to keep going!
