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

Hi Cee, how do you think about risk?
Risk-taking enables and encourages innovation and that’s an important part of the development of our business and products. Every time we set up we aren’t guaranteed to have people participate, shop or support our store. But in faith we put our energy and funds into creating the best space we can. And so far the risk has been worth the reward. Any failed risk we endured haven’t been negative because we learned so much that lead to greater success.

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 would say our team members, the entrepreneurs, and the community who shows up to support. FFDC is an ecosystem. It only works when we all put in our resources and show up for each other, and invest in ourselves.

These are the people that make FFDC what is is they deserve a major shoutout..
