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

Hi Briana, how do you think about risk?
No risk no reward. Simple as that. Sometimes it doesn’t work out but sometimes it does. As Momma Ru Paul says,
“And if I fly, or if I fall
Least I can say, I gave it all
And if I fly, or if I fall I’m on my way”

Other than deciding to work for yourself, what was the single most important decision you made that contributed to your success?

The most important decision I have ever made was to believe in myself. The next most important decision was to love on others well enough so they believe in themselves too.

What is the most important factor behind your success / the success of your brand?

The most important factor behind what I do is that I want to make others feel empowered. It is all about creating a confident community. When I see people in my clothes living their best lives, or they’re joyous with my art hanging in their homes I have done my job.

Alright, so let’s jump right in! 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 a person, group, organization, book, etc. that you want to dedicate your shoutout to? Who else deserves a little credit and recognition in your story?  
I am nothing without God and my mom.
