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

Hi Trell, what do you attribute your success to?
The most important factor behind my success and brand is keeping myself motivated and away from negativity. It is very hard to make sure that you do not get tangled up in the world with how it is revolved but have to think for yourself and make sure that you are making the right decisions.

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?
Getting to the point where I am today was not easy at all. Sometimes when I stop to look back at all the things I have went through, lost, gain, and had to do sometimes I have to shed a tear. Living in South Carolina it is not the easiest place to network due to most crafts are judged by who you know and not how business is ran and quality. Because of that it motivated e to get in my avenue and and push even harder to stand out form the rest by being consistent with doing what I need to do. Everyone sees the fame but does not know what was sacrificed to get to where I am today from the long nights, early mornings, the losses, freebies, hard work, etc.. If I had to do this all over again I would do it the same way because the biggest thing I learned from this journey is stay consistent and stay prayed up.

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?
Hanging out for me consist of going to a nice bar where it is not to crowed but also can meet like minded people. My favorite bar to go to is Vista Union that is located in the Vista in Columbia SC. If family and friends was down even though it is a about a 2 hour drive I would recommend that we ride to Charlotte to have a great time (party), and Charleston to have a nice relaxing time..

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I will like to dedicate my story to my dad and brother. My dad (Johnny Martin) taught me the real definition of hard work. Even as a young kid he always made sure that we worked and did not quit when things got rough. My brother Jermont Coleman always showed me the definition of even when everything starts to spiral downwards you have to keep working and pushing to see the success that is behind the obstacles.
