Old Lady Gang A Southern Eatery in Atlanta, GA #KandiBurruss

Real Housewives of Atlanta Kandi Burruss – Tucker and husband Todd Tucker came together on an idea to share some home Southern recipes. I love their family traditional recipes and how each member of the family has their own recipe on the menu.

The cornbread muffins with Kandi’s homemade honey icing and syrup. I tried to get the recipes but you know how that goes. I walked away with no recipe.

I ordered the Old Lady Gang House Salad. This chicken is on point I need the recipe for that too. It was really good and my waiter made sure I was I was good and if he was too busy I made sure I asked with no problem.

Some of the credit goes to Aunt Joyce mother of Kandi, Aunt Bertha, and Aunt Nora who is the “Old Lady Gang” are the ones who taught Kandi to throw down in the kitchen. The Old Lady Gang is located right in the city’s Historic + Art District which is the Castleberry Hill neighborhood in Atlanta, GA

If you watched Bravo TV’s Real Housewives of Atlanta you would have seen the introduction of OLG.

When you in Atlanta, GA make sure you stop by and show love. It’s not that intimidating you might be nervous for a bit but then once you warm up everyone is so laid back and respectful. All photos are my own.

Personal Branding For The Image Impaired

I’M WITH THE BRAND 

Never be afraid of your flaws that just might be the one thing we identify with. What is Angelina Jolie known for? You’re right you guess it. Her lips. The one thing I love about Madonna she never fixed her gap. Stop trying to buy perfect and use your signature part as part of your brand. (not so much Lebron James he fixed his hairline) We will definitely accept it, especially if we don’t have a choice.

I’M SERIOUS ABOUT MY BUSINESS 

Show your local clients how serious you are about your business they are more likely to take you seriously when awards, diplomas, and certificates are displayed. If you are worried about people stealing plaques or any other collectible vintage items chances are you have the wrong clients. Display your professional images. Your office is not a place for the things your grandparents gave you. Think about upgrading to one more bedroom or maybe you can turn the guest room into the home office. Make it very clear that people are not coming to lounge around. (sidenote) Some people are unorganized and easily distracted when everything is all in one when it comes to working from home. I been seeing a lot of influencers and entrepreneurs say they are ready for their physical office.

I’M ACTIVE ON SOCIAL MEDIA 

What’s is your Social Media language? Are you the influence you destined to be? Figure out a way that people can interact with you if you’re not gonna reply to every question. Create a hashtag whether it’s for asking you something or just sending tweets your way. #Ask(your name) or create something unique where only your tribe and community can associate with. The hashtag you create can be found by anyone on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. Think of something unique that can be associated with only your brand.

I’M PROFESSIONAL 

Always remain professional when it comes to your brand I know you see people out here doing the most and branding themselves in a way they shouldn’t by following the crowd. Don’t make someone’s lifestyle your priority unless you want to offer them Branding Strategies. Know what your brand does and what it doesn’t please keep that in mind when it comes to sharing and promoting other people’s content. Stay real and true to yourself and your brand.
