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

Hi Tyler, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
With my Dad being a business owner, I’ve always looked up to him and other people who own businesses. I’ve always loved fashion growing up and I wanted to create something that could speak for the youth, as well as the people around me. My whole purpose around my brand is that I create, in order to inspire people to chase their dreams and find their purpose. Don’t let anything hold you back and go after what you want.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
The help of my family definitely plays a big role in the success of my brand today. Also, always being willing to take advice and learn from others has also helped me make connections with people and grow my business. It definitely hasn’t been easy and I still have a long way to go, but the vision of my future and the progress that I have made so far is what keeps me going and overcoming any challenge that I face. One day, I want the world to know that Tyler Harris started his brand, Lost Roses, in hopes to inspire others to go after what they want in life and to never give up. Find your purpose and stick to it. You can either win, or learn. Nothing in life is a loss if you take the time to learn from it and take your business to the next level.

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?
I would take them to some of the most fun places, in my opinion, in Atlanta. The high museum of art, Piedmont Park, bowling, Ponce City Market, The Yard, just to name a few places.

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?
My family, close friends, and girlfriend for always supporting me. As well as anyone who has ever shown love, purchased from me, or even told someone about my brand, your support means everything to me!
