We had the good fortune of connecting with Christina Scott and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Christina, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
Believe it or not my thought process behind starting my own business came from a few different aspects of my life. Number one being my mom! I watched my mom from a young age be her own boss and overcome every obstacle that was in her way. Number two, the entertainment industry. I watched from a young age how the entertainment industry drives the culture and how you can change the world with your creativity. Number Three, Sean “Diddy” Combs. I have been looking up to Diddy for as long as I can remember. I want to be the female Diddy. Hard work, dedication, black excellence, respect, power, love and the people, those are the driving forces behind building a successful business in my eyes and those are the driving forces of my life!
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
My name is Christina “Chris” Scott. I am the CEO of Purple Unicorn Productions. Purple Unicorn Productions specializes in podcast and content creating. Purple Unicorn Productions was started by myself & @Lexyl3x in 2020 during the pandemic. The first project under Purple Unicorn is The Girl’s Chat Podcast (available everywhere now)! The Girl’s Chat Podcast is an idea Lexy and I brought to life based off her friendship of over 10 years with her home girls. The Girl’s Chat is a conversation between different women sharing their experiences and opinion on popular topics that anyone can relate to. Was it easy to just start the company? Nothing worthwhile is easy! Like any other company we have had our shares of up and down moments but how you recover from it is the better question. This is all a learning experience when your starting from scratch. With every episode we try to perfect it to make it a better quality that our viewers and listeners can appreciate and enjoy. We’re consistently doing research and seeing what and how we can pick up and change key aspects to make our show more marketable so we can attract businesses. Some of the lessons we’ve learned along the way is staying consistent, determined and don’t let other people’s success measure your success. Everything happens in its own timing! For everyone reading this I want you to know that Purple Unicorn Productions is a black owned business started by two women who’s creativity go beyond expectations. We are just getting started but soon you’ll see our podcasts and content everywhere you go.
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?
I’m usually a homebody but when my friends come to town I definitely make sure they have fun and eat!!!!! It wouldn’t be a great vacation if you didn’t go to the beach while your here! If you really want a taste of the Florida life we can rent a boat and have a yacht day! I’m not too much of a party girl but I can take you out to eat, so we’d would have to check out some of my favorite spots like Rickey’s Sport Bar and Grill in Pembroke Pines, Mauro’s pizza in Hollywood, Hook and Reel in Pines just to name a few. We can also have a chill game night at the Airbnb or hangout in Wynwood and check out the arts. However, before you go we have to check out the new Guitar Hotel at the Hard Rock Casino and play a few slot machines.
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?
All of this wouldn’t be possible without my partner Alexis “LexyL3x” Floyd. She is an amazing soul that I can always count on and she helps me stay on my p’s and q’s. If it wasn’t for the drive that we both have for creating content this company would not exist. I also want to shoutout my mom and my siblings for always inspiring, supporting and motivating me in anything I want to do! I love y’all!!
