We had the good fortune of connecting with Janelle “J’Nelle” Richardson and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Janelle, what is the most important factor behind your success?
An important factor behind my success and brand is consistency with my being a positive impact to those that come in my presence. My goal and purpose in life is to make others feel good about themselves and their vision.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
As an entrepreneur, I’m a singer/songwriter/founder of teen girl organization called She Got Vision/Vocal coach. I’m proud of myself for not quitting on what God has called me to do. I’ve dealt with much adversity when being an entrepreneur. I’ve had moments of wanting to give up, but I knew my purpose was bigger than me. That’s what keeps me going. I want the world to know that I want to build my legacy and to inspire many who comes my way.

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 very adventurous, and in Tampa, there’s so much to do. I’d take them to Curtis Hixon, Busch Gardens, Adventure Island, Dali Museum, Kayaking, Mom and pop restaurants, including restaurants like Rose Bar and 7th and Grove because Tampa is known for good food. I’d also take them to different beaches as well. There’s so much, but this should be good.

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?
I would like to shoutout my mentors and parents for always pushing me through times of adversity and trials. They are extremely vital to my success and mental state.
