Today we’d like to introduce you to Brittany James.
Hi Brittany, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
Well, when I was a kid, I wanted to create bathing suits for women. As I got older, I wanted to be a pharmacist because of what I seen in the streets. I just wanted to do it legally, with that mindset, I knew I wouldn’t get anywhere because success as we all know is a mindset, FIRST! So after I attended University of Maryland Eastern Shore, I came home and pursued an associate’s degree in criminal justice. Still was not satisfied and knew I was destined for greater, I finally dug into my passion which is helping others! I’m good at that part! So I went on to become a nurse and I excelled in being a great Nurse from Baltimore to Northern California. STILL, I’d wake up everyday wanting more and I knew I would be great with my entrepreneurial skills so I decided to become a licensed Bartender. Wearing many hats, I still had hunger and I also stopped and thought I wanted my city of Baltimore to use their “Better Judgement” which also are my initials “BJ”. as I stand today, I make clothing for women, men, and kids and working on digger into a bigger project which are African American Girls – Dive into my stories and Stay Tuned!
Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
No! Nothing worth it comes easy and I ran into many road bumps from establishing my business with Maryland state on paper to vendors to losing sleep because my thoughts and ideas wouldn’t allow me to rest to using my own funds to marketing and finding my target audience! Stressful but good stress, I must say.
We’ve been impressed with Better Judgement Brand, but for folks who might not be as familiar, what can you share with them about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
The name of my Business is Better Judgement Brand – simply for those who like comfort and style combined but also as a reminder – the owner promotes “Judgement” a lot of us in society to especially since the pandemic have resorted to not using that and I want everyone to know no matter what, you’ll always thrive using it…I specialize in women, men and kids clothing as well as a kids African American Hair Book which will be dropping shortly. What sets me apart is I want us all to eat and win. I’m not in this for competition and my ambition is unmatched. I’m proud to have found my target audience and for the fact that I produce quality material compared to Nike, Adidas and other comfort stylish brands. If you were hesitant about purchasing, come check the material out!
Let’s talk about our city – what do you love? What do you not love?
I like that Baltimore has been very hungry during the pandemic; however we HAVE TO SUPPORT ONE ANOTHER!
