I always knew I was different. Not better. Different. I’m the coolest most confident socially awkward inappropriate person you’ll ever meet. I never really fit in, and I honestly stopped trying.
I was introduced to the PPPL Clothing (Peculiar People Clothing)in my (ongoing) research of the new Nashville social (media) scene. Peculiar is one of those words that stands out because it just isn’t use that often. And, being raised in the Souther Church scene, my head echoed of the cadence of the pastor quoting this verse:
(Now I know there are so many iterations of the bible so the KING JAMES VERSION states this):
“But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light”
Imagine after ever comma was a deep inhale and a body rock in the rhythmic style mimicking the ancestors.
But that verse though!! Now I’m not religious AT ALL….but baby I know that creator of mine, whatever it may be, made me perfect, splendid and amazing….unlike anybody else, with something special inside me that purposefully contributes to this thing called life.
Now if you feel me, Go ahead and let that shout in your spirit out. I’ll wait.
Being a brand ambassador I get to choose my partners and I love wearing a tee that represents who I am, walking in my purpose, peculiar and all because guess what — I’m NOT like anybody else…..and neither are you.

Q: What aspect of your business are you most passionate about?
I am passionate about my business functioning in its purpose.
Q: What business advice would you give other emerging business owners?
There is no one key that is going to guarantee success as a business owner and don’t let anyone fool you into thinking different. It takes time, dedication, maturity and much more. But above all my immediate advice would be..make sure you know that what you are pursuing is actually a part of God’s plan for your life, adopt a lifestyle of constantly gaining knowledge, and make a stand to not dwell on your mistakes! When you make mistakes, and you
But above all my immediate advice would be..make sure you know that what you are pursuing is actually a part of God’s plan for your life, adopt a lifestyle of constantly gaining knowledge, and make a stand to not dwell on your mistakes! When you make mistakes, and you will, learn and immediately move forward.
Dwelling on your past instead of perceiving your future will keep you stagnant..TRUST ME!
Q: What is your mantra or your “words to live by?”
I would say my “mantra” would be the founding scripture for my company which is 1 Peter 2:9 “You are a Royal priesthood, a chosen generation, a peculiar people, called out of darkness into God’s marvelous light!”
For me, that scripture helps me to keep things in perspective. No matter how many times I mess up, no matter how hard it gets, no matter the circumstances. I was chosen for this, I will not fail!
