Introduce yourself and profession to our readers:
My name is Yvonne Coleman-Burney, am the
owner and Editor-in-Chief of both our magazine issues. But there is no brand without my team. They are the driving force and glue, each one holding us together and moving us to our destiny. We are an online digital and print publication. Our magazines are very different each one serving their own purpose in hopes to bring change and make a difference in our movement for inspiring and bringing forth some type of positive change. Designer Original Magazine is just for the creative designer of the world. Designers of all types; accessories, fashion and home improvement. We search for designers worldwide to bring you the creative talent of some of the best kept and unknown designers of the world. The Boss Mann - is just for men and the women who love them. It is a source of fashion, lifestyle, health, art, books and more. We hope to show the awesomeness of men that are making a difference and have it together so that we can help to motivate and encourage the younger generation of men coming up to be all that they can be.
What inspired your pursuits?
I worked as a hair stylist in my younger years and always had a passion for fashion and beauty. I basically worked in the medical field most of my life to support my family. But as time went on I felt something missing in myself and felt like I had to pursue my dream. With prayer and lot of determination to do something in the industry, eventually God opened those doors and through a lot of hard work, trials and lot of stumbling blocks here we are. Having a background of fashion, beauty and graphics along with photography it just seemed to be the ideal fit for me and my creativity. The goal is to share that knowledge and help others down their own path of creative pursuits.
What advice would you have for those interested in a similar pursuit?
I would tell them to research first, its really good to see what you are getting into, and if you know without a shadow of a doubt that it is something you can do all day and all night with no pay? Then go for it, you are most likely operating in your gifts and talents that you were given. It is nothing better than doing the thing you love and making some type of difference in someone else's life. What do you have to lose? "Nothing beats a failure but a try."
What is next for your business/brand in 2016?
To continue to be the best we can be and bring our viewers the best quality magazines as we strive to be a catalyst for others to achieve their own dreams and goals. We have some really awesome issues that are coming to close out the year 2016. But we plan on making so much noise in 2017 that you won't even need to turn around you will just simply smile and say "Wow that must be D.O.M."
