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

Hi Victoria, how do you think about risk?
Anything you do for your business or ministry is a risk. Just getting something started is a risk, but you have to believe in yourself enough to take those risks. I’m not afraid to take chances because I’m confident in myself and the calling that God has placed on my life. I never look at my mistakes as failures but as opportunities to learn what not to do and continue to grow.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
Dare You To Love was started in late 2020 after personally enduring heartbreak through church hurt. I believe many of us experience the pain of being hurt by the church ultimately leading us to the point of disregarding the church as a whole.

I attended bible college and worked for several years at a local church just to quit in the fall of 2019. For almost a whole year I battled with this sense of knowing there was something greater out there for me and also feeling worthless for quitting my ministry position.

Every time I would get an idea for Dare You To Love I would jot it down on a sticky note and put it in a safe place but I wasn’t fully convinced that I was worthy enough to start a podcast or do anything ministry related on my own. It wasn’t August 2020 before I started the beginning preparations for a podcast.

I haven’t looked back since, I produced the entire first season on my own, looking up YouTube videos on how to edit and upload a podcast episode. This year I hired a team to help me with filming each episode and are currently wrapping up our second season. I have many more plans for the future and want to see Dare You To Love become more than just a podcast but a tool that God can use to help others all around the globe.

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 have lived in Metro Atlanta my whole life and have many spots that I enjoy.

If you are visiting Atlanta for the first time or wanting to try some new things I suggest Gu’s Dumplings at Krog Street Market, the rooftop at Ponce City Market (especially at Christmas time), Dancing Goats if you like coffee, and this is not technically in the city but I am a huge Atlanta Braves fan and love the new stadium at The Battery.

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 have two people in mind that I would dedicate my success to.

First and foremost, I want to acknowledge God and His will for my life. I know that God inspires me to do certain things for the Dare You To Love brand and podcast and it’s because of Him that I am able to produce this show.

Lastly, I would like to dedicate my success to my dad. He is a small business owner out in North Georgia called Mobile Hydraulics and I believe I get my work ethic and drive from watching him successfully run his business for the last thirty plus years. He truly inspires me to work harder and harder everyday to achieve my goals.
