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

Hi Wealthi, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
When I thought about starting my own business, my goal in mind was that I do not want to nor do I plan on working for the rest of my life. My thought process was that I want to be successful to the point that I can create a life where I can pack and family up and we travel at the drop of a dime just because.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
My career….. Personally, my job has not become my career yet. I am a security supervisor; I’ve been in this industry for about ten (10) years now. My people/socializing skills set me apart of others. You ever heard the saying, ” oh she doesn’t meet a stranger” , well in some cases, that’s me. Professionally, I have reached where I am by simply being respectful and standing on my beliefs. I’d be lying if I said that this journey has been easy, because it hasn’t. There were many obstacles I had to overcome. Changing my mindset is what help me to do so. I had to learn that not everything deserves a reaction, an answer or justification. Sometimes it’s best to just say okay and keep it pushing. Along the way, I’ve learned that not everyone is going to believe in you; not everyone is going to support you. These are things that you have to learn to be okay with. YOUR vision isn’t for everyone else to see or understand. Just remember your why. Why did you start this journey? Let your answer continue to be your motivation.

My Brand is just that, a reflection or should I say, representation of me. A Rich Taste was created to give people an experience they’ve never had before when it comes to desserts. After about a year in business, I expanded the experience being limited from just desserts to food as well. My hopes are that my brand grows to be known in many states ,if not worldwide.

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.
Monday- ??? Tuesday- Also known as $2.00 Tuesday. We could either go somewhere and have tacos and drinks,,, or have a few of our other friends over and I’d make a variety of tacos and have drinks.

Wednesday: Before Covid I would enjoy going to Centennial Park for Wind Down

Thursday- Before Covid, I used to attend this open mic-spoken word event at this cozy coffee shop near the midtown area, Urban Grind.

Wednesdays. It was a very chill atmosphere with live music and food.
Weekends I usually spend with family. Whether it be immediate or extended, I’m with family. Either my husband and I have our son out traveling or at a park somewhere.

Sunday-Church! I attend Springfield Baptist Church, Pastor E. Lee Sr.

I’ll be honest, I don’t really do clubs anymore, haven’t done so in a while now. I like a nice lounge or restaurant/bar, but I don’t really go out. So my best friend would already know this. Our good/great times would consists of nail / spa dates, great food, me cooking, skating, and just chilling. Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My shoutout goes to my clients/customers. However, my FIRST and BIGGEST shoutout goes to my husband, Chris! He heard my idea when I sat down to talk with him and he believed in me. He funded the start up of my business and has pushed and encouraged me the entire journey. I most definitely have to shoutout my parents, cousins, and close friends for ALWAYS supporting me.
