Meet Devin Porter of The Devie Collection in Long Beach

Today we’d like to introduce you to Devin Porter.

Devin, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I always loved to workout. I was a collegiate athlete, earned a full athletic scholarship for softball to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. After moving back home, I got a job working in corporate America for nine years. I ended up getting laid off. While I was working, I always had a vision of starting a fitness line.

Unfortunately, I never had to the time or the money while I worked. After being let go from my job that all changed and I now had both. Fast forward to last January was the Birth of The Devie Collection.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
The hardest part for me was actually going thru the process of starting my line. Figuring out the small details before my store was up and running was very time consuming & sometimes frustrating. Especially since I had no clue where to start, I kinda just figured it out. I did a lot of research.

The Devie Collection – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
We’re a black-owned fitness wear/activewear line. Our motto is to provide premium quality activewear for the everyday athlete. We are most proud of our customer service. Our goal is to make sure all of our customers are satisfied with our products & receive them in a timely manner. What sets us apart is that we cater to all size women we offer size small up to 2X.

What is “success” or “successful” for you?
Success for our brand varies. One week we may have a goal that we set out to reach & we successfully reached out. That fact that we were chosen to be featured in your publication is one of our many successes. Eventually would love to open a showroom. That is our ultimate goal.
