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

Hi Kiara, why did you decide to pursue a creative path?
The reason why I chose to pursue a creative career is because I simply enjoy being creative. I have worked in jobs where I could not express my creativity and it made me become extremely negative and discouraged in life. I love being in a position where I can do what I love. It makes for a better life and makes for a better me.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
My work journey has been all over the place. Since graduating college, I went into retail, then administrative work, then into what I really love which is social media and marketing. Even if there has been some struggles along the way, it is all worth it if you keep striving for what you actually want to do in life.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
First, I would take them out to brunch at Jinky’s Cafe, then head towards the beach to lay out and chill. Then we would go towards Third Street Promenade to shop, eat, and drink. And to end the day I would take them out to a fun bar! Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I am a huge fan of podcasts and I have been listening to this particular one for a long time. Ed Mylett is an entrepreneur, public figure, podcaster and more. His podcast “Max Out” has helped me beyond words. Every motivational message that he has presented has encouraged me to take control of my life and live it the way I want to live it. I have been following his advice ever since.
