“As an entrepreneur I feel like I’ve had to find out so much of it on my own through just learning the hard way.” - Cris LaNiese

“I just bet on myself. In Atlanta one thing that challenged me the most is that its so many other people out here doing what you’re doing that you have to make sure that you’re standing out.” - Cris LaNiese

Energy…

“Our end goal is only to fuel the next big thing because if you give something else the energy you would give yourself, people appreciate it.” - Cris LaNiese

The Team, Artpocalypseatlanta… 

“Everything that we do, we constantly have to clear our intensions prior to doing it. It’s super important to make sure that you and your team are on the same page because it’s so easy to get distracted.” - Cris LaNiese

Reinvesting…

“Being an entrepreneur is so difficult, it looks cool because everyone on instagram says they’re an entrepreneur. All of the money we make from Artpocalypse literally goes to the next project. We work to fund our projects. Honestly I wouldn’t have it any other way because I’m at my happiest.” - Cris LaNiese

“You don’t want what everyone else wants. I have no real worldly needs. I don’t care about any of that. It’s like your mindset is so different that either the people around you can respect it or they think that you’re crazy." - Cris LaNiese

I'm De La True, peace.
