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

Hi Stacie, what role has risk played in your life or career?
In Life We Take Risk… It’s like betting In Vegas its a 50/50 Chance ! The risk I took with my latest venture was by far the best one yet so many opportunities I’m still so excited about it all.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
I’ve always been creative in my own way I love to create my own Vibes !! I’ve worked very hard to be where I am today, I own and operate Toddler Tings ! Paint.Play.Create also Fresh Finesse Flowers both have been a complete blessing it’s never easy it’s really hard work very long days, very long hours you definitely have to create the balance in it all and I usually find the time to do that when I host Mommy Club by Stacie H. I embrace Moms from all walks of life we choose a Friday and we just kick it..LOL

Every road you travel will have challenges the key is to stay steady, stay focused on the prize I’ve had many setbacks health wise almost made me want to give both business up but that wouldn’t be me so I look at setbacks as apart of the plan and in every season there is a reason I Pray, I Let Go & Let GOD !!!

Both my brands represent me I’ve always loved children I have 3 of my own so it was nothing to launch a business 15 years ago as it relates to motherhood and being hands on .. My flower power came during the pandemic and it has been an amazing journey so far I just wrapped up LA Fashion Week the experience was very liberating it truly reminded me of how hard work pays off !! I Mean to see my brand on a big screen it was so surreal, I was just speechless and so thankful all at the same time LOL

In today’s world, you really just have to focus on You and Just Do You !! Never mind the naysayers just live your full potential make sure passion is your purpose and your really dedicated to living the life you’ve always dreamed while making your health and mental wellness a priority

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.
Well being that I’m a Inglewood,Ca native we definitely would cruise by SoFi Stadium…Lol it’s amazing to see how the city of champions really have come to life !! It’s a new chic boutique hotel called Lum on century and prairie def a Vibe !! Then there’s some great spots locally that I love to drop in occasionally along downtown market street like Emmas Snack Shop, The Wood Urban Kitchen, Martin’s Cocina y Cantina,The Nile Bar, I mean it’s so many more to add to the list I would recommend taking a trip to my city!! Some of the most fun, interesting and exciting things to check out would be adventures you’ve never done before like random thrift shopping, or a pop up picnic in the park a nice museum or even a flower garden stroll, I love a vibe like that let’s just get in the car and go let’s create a random bucket list and enjoy life I’m realizing that fun doesn’t always have to be planned sometimes its better when you just Do !! I Love Random Days & Mini Vacays
