Life and Work with P’etra Elise

Today we’d like to introduce you to P’Etra Elise.

So, before we jump into specific questions, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I am a results driven, family oriented, Southern Belle who has always believed in “creating your own table”. I began my career creating my table with PEtra Elise TV ,pursuing my dreams as a Entertainment Host. This platform led me to interviewing Hollywood’s biggest names (Oprah Winfrey, Tyler Perry, Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg, Will Smith, etc). Today, as I continue to strive for greatness in the entertainment industry, I am also moving into the world of entrepreneurship. My first business venture will launch Jan 2020, Recherché. Recherché is an e-boutique that offers affordable, sophisticated, ready to wear pieces for the modern woman. The recherché woman is graceful, sexy, confident, and professional. To keep up with Recherché follow @recherchestylez on Instagram and Facebook.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
My journey has not been a smooth road and I am grateful for that. If anybody has had a smooth road… that’s what I’d be more afraid of. Challenges and obstacles during your journey builds character. Without setbacks, you’ll never know what you’re truly made of. Some struggles have included receiving more “No’s” then receiving “Yes’s”. Other struggles consist of breakups & financial setbacks, but nothing was enough for me to give up, which is the key to it all. I’ve always looked at life through a different lens understanding that each “No” is getting me closer to that “Yes”.

My advice to anyone starting their journey would be to believe in yourself, do not get distracted, follow your instincts, and pray about every single move you make.

What do you specialize in? What are you most proud of? What sets you apart from others?
I specialize interviewing celebrities at press junkets, red carpet events, and one on one interviews.

I am most proud that my brand is a representation of me. I am a woman of God who’s brand reflects integrity, wisdom, and growth in every way.

My personality, experiences, and understanding of life sets me apart from others. Every interview and everything I do I strive to be a light for people to live a better life tomorrow than they did yesterday.

Often it feels as if the media, by and large, is only focused on the obstacles faced by women, but we feel it’s important to also look for the opportunities. In your view, are there opportunities that you see that women are particularly well-positioned for?
Interesting question…There are more women, and women of color, creating their own opportunities than ever before. This is a time for more women to step up and take control of their dreams/aspirations in life.

I also can only speak from the lens of the journey I’m on. For instance, I won’t say that as a nurse a person is well-positioned for an opportunity, because that may not be the case. It may seem like he/she is but when you’re working in a structured field where a man dominates, you may never get to the position you really want. Versus as an Entrepreneur you’re creating your own opportunities and your own rules so the sky is the limit. You get out of it what you’re putting in.
