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

Hi Destinee, how has your background shaped the person you are today?
I am from Lafayette, Louisiana and I was born, raised, and currently reside here. Being from Lafayette, Southern Hospitality isn’t something you learn, it’s something you embody. Being a part of the Lafayette culture has given me the passion and motivation to give back to my local community. At a young age, I knew that I’d be successful and use my talents to give back to not only my local community, but people who need it most.

What should our readers know about your business?
Maven Marketing Agency is a full-service digital marketing agency with a passion for innovation — and helping companies flourish. We truly believe in the transformative power of marketing and its ability to simplify communications, foster connections, and elevate businesses. Through creativity and research, we take pride in earning clientele and maintaining customer satisfaction. What sets us a part from the rest of our competitors is that we strategically and carefully choose which businesses we want to work with, and ensure that we’re creating valuable partnerships through networking that will last a lifetime. Not only do we love educating our partners and future partners, but we also love learning from them as well!

The road to becoming an impactful entrepreneur is never-ending. Though I’ve had a few setbacks along the way, knowing that I’m positively impacting people and their businesses has helped me overcome any adversity or challenges.

I want the world to know that it’s okay to step out on Faith and do what it is you love to do. You don’t have to be a multi-million dollar company to be considered successful. You don’t have to have a huge team of employees or a large clientele. So long as you’re putting out QUALITY, purposeful, and passionate work – that is a greater success than you can ever imagine!

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
A few of my favorite spots in the Lafayette area include, but aren’t limited to:

Any local parks in central Lafayette! There’s a new park called Moncus Park that I’m eager to bring my dogs to!

The FOOD here is amazing! If you can’t find me at home, it’s probably because I’m visiting a local plate-lunch place here. My favorite as of now is Laura’s II.

I also really love nights at the Kart Ranch! Supper kiddy, but lots of fun things to do including go-karts, bumper boats, arcade games, and more.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I’d love to dedicate my shoutout to my fiance’, Ashley. She pushes me daily and reminds me why I’ve worked so hard and why I should continue to work hard. She is a daily reminder that I’ve been called to not only exceed my own personal goals but inspire others along the way.
