Introduce yourself and profession to our readers:
Hello All! My name is Darnica Gordon and I’m the Owner & Editor of Christ It Up Magazine.
What inspired you to pursue this area of interest?
I’ve actually always loved magazines, but never in a lifetime would I have thought I would actually run one. God basically showed me this is what He wanted me to do. At first, I thought it was a vision for me to pass on to my husband, but God said no, no.
What advice would you share with those interested in a similar pursuit?
Don’t be discouraged. It is hard getting past the basic information the internet provides. A lot of other magazine companies don’t want to help in fear of competition. And it makes it a little more difficult when you have no background in the area. (Raises hand)
Discuss a professional challenge and how you overcame it:
One of the professional challenges I face is providing a quality product with a small budget. I use low budget tools that allow for my product to showcase at the quality it deserves.
What is next for your brand/business in 2016?
Making it to 2017! No, on a serious note, to expand our horizons. I would love to be more accessible for our readers i.e., in stores, beauty salons, etc.
