Conversations with Keyeshia Rainey

Today we’d like to introduce you to Keyeshia Rainey.

Hi Keyeshia, can you start by introducing yourself? We’d love to learn more about how you got to where you are today?
Firstly, I would like to thank you guys for recognizing me as well as my brand…

I always was a creator/creative… So for as long as I can remember, I always wanted my own brand/shop/business… I’m originally from West Point, Mississippi… I relocated to Tampa, Florida literally five years ago during winter on super bowl Sunday… lol… So ironic for me… Anyway…

After about seven months, I started slowly but showly working on my brand, Chic Eccentrics… (I’m personally such a classy hippie & weirdo… So I figured why not give it that name)…

Once I received all of my business information and permits/certificates it was on!… So in memory of my great great grandmother, I launched on her birthday, January 31, 2017…

What started as just ten different apparel pieces has grown into the ultimate one stop shop… Apparel, designer consignment, accessories, jewelry, cosmetics, etc… Just so much more is in store…

The business hub of my brand is definitely loading and in the works…

I get asked so many questions and I love to help the next person so this would be a great way to help up and coming entrepreneurs such as myself… It’s been four years but there is always room for improvement…

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
It has been some journey with many different obstacles, all both good and bad… I believe in taking lessons not l’s… Anything worth having won’t come easy… So with every struggle came a beautiful lesson or result.. 1 of my biggest struggles at first was figuring out my target audience after about six months, I finally figured it out… My vibe attracted my tribe and they are still with me new consumers as well as day one Loyal Consumer…

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
My goal was to create an unconventional shop that caters to abnormal beings of the world with acquired taste in apparel, etc… Chicly designed with every eccentric in mind… And that’s exactly what I did… What sets me apart from others is a simple ingredient… Me… No one can compete with me being me… my parents always would tell me as a kid to be myself; everyone else is taken and it’s free…

Can you talk to us a bit about happiness and what makes you happy?
What makes me happy is life itself… Being able to rise in good health in today’s time is wealth itself… Now being able to walk in your light and purpose while doing so is priceless…
