Logan Kelly is a unisex brand based in East Orange New Jersey. We caught up with Logan Kelly’s founder, Keenyah Logan, to learn about the brand’s growth since its beginnings in 2017. Check out highlights of our Q & A session:
What is one of your favorite things about running your company?
Being an entrepreneur is amazing. One of my favorite things about it is being able to have creative control of the whole company.
What is a challenge that you face in running your company?
One of my biggest challenges is time management. As some entrepreneurs, I work a 9-5, so being able to get back to business can sometimes sometimes be a lot of work.
If you had to describe being an entrepreneur in three words, what words would you choose?
Resilient. Persistent. Ambitious.
Who has had the most influence on your growth as an entrepreneur and why?
I feel that what motivates me to continue to build my company is people that tell me I inspire them and just wanting to be better than the last thing that I did. It’s a constant challenge and I love that.
As far as growth goes, I would have to give it to my friends. My friends have helped me grow as a person and as a business owner.
Do you think that you face additional obstacles as a black entrepreneur? Why or why not?
Well listen, I’m a black female entrepreneur and think that if I think about obstacles then I’ll face them. But if I remove them from my space I don’t even have to think about them because honestly, being black and being a woman and running a business is so exciting to me and I’m sure it’s exciting to other people, so I don’t really think about it. I don’t think I’ll run into too many obstacles, but we’ll cross that bridge when we get there.
Be you. Love you. Show the world you…stay lifted.
