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

Hi Obie, alright, let’s jump in with a deep one – what’s you’re definition for success?
For me, getting up every morning loving what I do is success.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
Fashion has always been a part of my life. My mother was a seamstress. Growing up, she would make my brothers and I clothing. She would buy the fabric, cut the garments and sew them herself. I think that’s where my love for fashion comes from. I also want to inspire people and I think that’s where my influencer career kicks in. I like sharing what I wear, my fitness lifestyle, travel plans, the things I do ect… That’s the part that excites me the most. Social media allows us to share our stories and at the same time inspire others.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I will definitely take them to the Griffith Observatory, City Walk, LA Live, the beach, Six Flags and Disneyland. As far as food, in & out burger, the pier, the local mom and pop shops for sure and why not Beverly Hills has great restaurants too.

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 feel like my older siblings have a played a significant role of where I’m at today. They’re definitely my mentors; and I always go to them when I need some solid experience advice.
