We had the good fortune of connecting with Davita Ramnarine and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Davita, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
After many years of employment in the business world, I reached crossroad where I was able to focus on my passion. I had my family’s support financially and morally which boosted my confidence and I was blessed to be able to realize this dream of having a business and doing what I love.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I’ve had a long career in the legal field which was more of a repetitive activity. Starting a new business comes with it’s own unique challenges and hurdles. Building a business organically requires proper research, talent, finance, dedication, planning and execution while being able to adapt as new learning comes with time and experience. While it’s a small business, it’s a brand that has been very well managed and withstood the challenges of online and an expanding competitive market . It’s also been successful despite the recent pandemic obstacles that has destroyed many small businesses.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
My favorite relaxation and out on the town takes me to special places that offers a relaxing atmosphere. Showing a best friend a great time is like revealing your secrets and exposing your special and most treasured moments. Miami has always been quick getaway for one night stays and a whole different experience to Palm Beach. My favorite hangouts are Seaspice, Kiki’s on the water, the lounge at the W on South Beach among other great places at Mary Brickell. A good Moscow Mule or a chilled glass of Sancerre changes the mood. On the local scene, Palm Beach Island has several spots such as Buccan or the Meat Market with great moods and friendly people.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I’d like to dedicate this to my family and a very dear friend who grew up in the business. These were the inspiring people that supported me and still does after all these years. We all have talents, but being able to channel it into something that is rewarding in many ways is quite a privilege.
