[DELUX MAG] Power Couple Empowering the Community

Check out my interview on DELUXMag.com about St. Louis’s Power couple empowering the community and many more!

It’s one thing to be a couple making business moves together, but it’s another thing to be a couple and giving back to the community. Onnie Bella and LaRonn (The Tycoon) are legit goals, yet they are modest when they hear the compliment. From throwing parties for “young professionals” to living out their passion and goals of giving back to the community.

DELUX was granted the opportunity to interview this busy couple and get to know them better.

DELUXHey you two. Thanks for talking with me and congratulations on your engagement.

Onnie & LaRonn: Thank you so much! We are literally still trying to make time to soak it up. It’s still fresh and new, but we’re super busy and find new projects or community events to start planning almost weekly [laughs].

DELUX: So, let’s get started. How did you all meet?

O&L: So, it’s crazy because I ended up at a party he was throwing, I came with my friends, kicked it, and left. About a month later I get a message from him thanking me for coming out to the event and asking for my feedback on the event. I gave my feedback, which I think was super helpful and constructive [laughs], and from there he asked if I would ever come back, and I think I said something like “If you invite me and I’m free, I’ll come.” I literally meant like free as in have nothing to do, and he thought I meant like didn’t have to pay [laughs], and instantly sent his number like “I can make that happen.” A week later we were texting and the rest is history.

DELUXDo you all have power couple inspirations? Like Beyoncé and Jay-Z of course do music together and Jada & Will own a production company together.

O&L: We don’t have a power couple inspiration. We aren’t all that into idolizing stars or other people at all for that matter. If you focus on what you have without trying to compare it or make it like someone else’s journey, your free to make mistakes, learn from them, and not feel pressured to fit into a box of “how it’s supposed to be.” We’ve made our relationship our own and it just so happens we are a power couple. We do get a lot of “#goals” comments and things of that nature.

Of course, we appreciate it and we’re flattered and that’s a dope hashtag for someone to associate with us, but our hope is honestly that associating us with “#goals” means more than just that. We hope we can remind folks that love still exists, building something concrete still exists, and that it doesn’t have to look like a cookie cutter version of what you see on tv.

DELUXWhat made you so comfortable with starting a business together? Some couples wait until they’re married sometimes.

O&L: I think the fact we both had done events in some type of capacity made us feel confident about hosting events together. We also have a great balance as business partners. We both bring different things to the table when it comes to our strengths and weaknesses and we complement each other, so it makes for a great team. We didn’t even hesitate over the fact we weren’t married when we thought of going into this together. We both believed in the brand and each other, so we ran with it.

DELUXThat’s so inspiring!! You two make a great team. How did you come up with the name SAUCE for your brand?

I’M A WRITER FOR DELUX MAG!

So about two weeks ago, I was granted the opportunity to become a writer/blogger for a local magazine in St. Louis (my hometown).

It was completely random. The owner reached out to me on my Danii Gold facebook page and then the editor in chief reached out to me on Instagram. With this platform I will be about to showcase my content on a larger scale.

Check out the website below and be on the lookout for my first story. I’ll be posting on here.

Blog Challenge Day 24-30 FINALLY!

I’ve been behind guys, I’m terribly sorry.

Day 24: What attracts me, when dealing with love

  • Affection. It’s something about being held, and being kissed & touched in the right places. 

  • A sense of remembering things. I hate repeating myself about certain things, so if a guy can remember something I told him and elaborate on it, I’m attracted to that.

  • If you can make me laugh, I’m attracted to your humor.

  • A pretty smile is sooo sexy to me, if you can make me laugh an on top of that, laugh with me and show those beautiful teeth…LORD!

DAY 25: BIGGEST REGRET

I feel like I have so many, but I’ll keep it short.

  • Not blogging while in college. I could have been really big by now.

  • Not taking dance seriously in college

  • Not doing sports in high school.

  • Dealing with F*** boys!

  • Pursuing digital media sooner than now

DAY 26: HIDDEN TALET

I’m kind of good at imitations. Like E-40 (my best one), Kevin Hart, and a couple more lol. I wish I could sing, or paint, but for now, I’m only good at imitations lol.

 

DAY 27: WHATS IN MY CLOSET

I have sandals, boots, sweaters, sundresses, and UGGS in my closet. I stay in Missouri and the weather here is bipolar AF. I also have a Sombrero in my closet from Chevys lol.

DAY 28: MOST EMBARASSING MOMENT

Hmmmmm, I remember being in 7th grade at my new school. For some reason I carried around this binder with my posters from magazines Word Up and Right On. They were posters of B2k, IMX, and whoever was poppin back in 2003 lol. Well when I got out of class and was walking to my next class, i spilled out alll my posters and people was chuckling and shit and I felt soooooooooooooooo drove (STL Slang). From them on, I never carried around those posters in a binder at school again. I still don’t know why I was carrying it around at school smh.
