Let’s welcome Marquita Price of Pink Prestige Events.
Tell me about Pink Prestige Events and how it all came about?
I love to cook, I love to entertain. So I just combined the two. I have a passion for cooking & a passion for people. I know that food can make people feel good, relax and enjoy themselves, so I embraced that and ran with it.
When did you first realize your had a passion for cooking?
I have always cooked, even when I was younger, I found myself cooking as an escape. It’s my thing. I would watch cooking shows and try all of the recipes. It drove my parents crazy, LOL they would get tired of me trying so many different things.
Did you always know that you want to have your own business?
Never, I try to stay away from business politics, but I now know it is an necessary evil for me to become more successful.
You have been in business for a long time now, what keeps your motivated?
Helping to make people’s events a success. Also, seeing people happy and enjoying themselves, I feel good knowing that I helped them to have a good time.
What’s you favorite dish to make?
I don’t really have one, but my most requested is my Famous Peach Cobbler and a Lemon Almond Pound Cake. I do like to make mac n cheese too, its an easy one.
What’s one lesson you have learned along the way?
Loving what you do is half the battle, the rest will fall into place. Don’t quote me on that because I am an extremely positive person. People don’t understand my crazy. LOL
If you can give one piece of advice, what would it be?
One monkey don’t stop no show. In other words, don’t give up, even when you want to, press towards the mark.
