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

Hi Chereen, what role has risk played in your life or career?
I once was told success is on the other side of fear. Whenever taking a risk I tell myself this may be successful or it won’t be but I won’t know unless I take it. I took a risk starting my career and I don’t regret it I have good days and bad days but every day I get up I give it my all and keep going.

What should our readers know about your business?
I always wanted to have my own business. I do work a full time job but wanted something to fall back on in case something should ever happened. I always get compliments on my shoes. So I thought to myself why not open a shoe store and that’s exactly what I did. I love picking out shoes of different styles and I also wanted to make sure it was affordable. Of course nothing good comes easy I had some set backs in the beginning but it was all worth it. At times I thought about giving up but I wanted to show my kids you can do whatever you put your mind too if mommy can do this you can accomplish anything.

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?
We’d definitely hang on the beach I love the water and probably check out a seafood spot for food also bowling and catch a movie.
