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

Hi Adrian Paul, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
The thought process behind starting my own business, PRIDE BEAUTY was to prove that with hard work and passion anything is possible. Going into this I told myself whether I made one sale or hundreds of sales, I knew it was something I was going to be proud of. Being able to see my vision come to life and hearing that others love my products as much as I do is a feeling I can’t explain. Just like Selena Quintanilla said, “Always believe that the impossible is always possible.”

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
What makes my brand Pride Beauty different is that we truly believe everyone is Gorgeous, however it’s always fun to be extra!

I know what it feels like to be a minority, but with Pride Beauty we don’t have to worry about that because we are a huge family of all kinds of backgrounds, however we all share one thing in common we’re all beautiful.

One thing I’ve learned is that You are your greatest challenge. You can let the negative thoughts get to you or you can build an empire instead. YOU have the power.

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.
Coffee at Alfred for sure, Maybe go for a hike, not in Hollywood.. Malibu has a few cute Hiking spots, plus the beach is right there so we obviously have to have a picnic during lunch.
Find a cute spot in Sunset Boulevard for dinner, then grab a drink in West Hollywood and dance the night away

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I am extremely blessed to have a mom, who till this day still reminds me to follow my heart & that with God anything is possible. I owe it to my mom, she’s always been my rock and at times when I have doubted myself, she never fails to remind me that no dream is too big.
