We had the good fortune of connecting with Keisha Williams and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Keisha, how has your background shaped the person you are today?
My name is Keisha Williams best known as “KOTR” or “Keisha On The Rocks”. I am from South Central Los Angeles, and I would say my background and upbringing definitely molded a hustler. Being from such a big busy city has always kept me motivated to get my goals accomplish for the things that I wanted living here in Los Angeles. I had a impact from my Father who worked for Department of Water & Power to strive for the BEST and always work for what you want in life, because in life it isn’t any short cuts to success. I instilled the advice my father had given to me when he was still living, and that’s what helped me to stay in 1st place in my business.
What should our readers know about your business?
I have a mobile Bartending Business in South Central LA, my business was inspired by over coming depression from losing my father back in 2016. I picked up the trade of Bartending from my most current job promotion. Once I got familiar with different tricks and techniques behind the bar and from bartending I decided to give it a shot as a hobby, and my hobby has turned into a small black owned business for the last two years!!
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
One of my all time favorite places to take anybody from my city or out of town would have to be to Tommy’s famous burger stand! You truly haven’t experienced LA until you go!
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 love to shout out all Small Businesses in LA I know what it takes to be a small business owner and true dedication that it takes for it to Excel! A special shout out I would like to personally give to would be HJB_Cream on Instagram! A young kid entrepreneur with his own Ice Cream Truck in the city of Los Angeles! He always accepts bookings for parties in LA and surrounding cities!
