Meet LaKissha Williams of #SocialKhaos Marketing

Today we’d like to introduce you to LaKissha Williams.

Thanks for sharing your story with us LaKissha. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I was born in Fairfax, VA but eventually raised in a small town in East TN (Johnson City). After graduating high school, I decided I wanted to pursue a career in Fashion Merchandising. I attended college for a few years, but that journey slowed down due to wanting to “live my best life”. By the time I turned 30, life took a different path. I was working in IT (who would’ve known) and raising three kids. I put my dreams of fashion on hold to focus on my family because that’s what Moms do…. don’t they?

After working in IT for about seven years and being my inner circle’s “tech support”, I decided to change my focus from fashion to computers. I honestly had no idea what my direct focus would be, but I knew I wanted to showcase my creative side along with my techie side. I did some research and decided to enroll at Full Sail University. During my time at Full Sail, I studied Web Design and graduated in 2016 with a certification in Media Communications. If anyone knows about Media Communications, it is such a broad area. I had to try and figure out how I was going to use this certification and do something that I loved.

Over the years, I pushed so many of my friends to pursue their dreams. I wanted to see everyone win! We all have a purpose, but we don’t all know how to get to the top. I knew I wanted to help others grow their brand, but how. I also knew being in TN wasn’t going to get me to the level I wanted, so I packed up and moved my family to Atlanta.

After being in Atlanta for four years and still working in IT, I decided to step out on faith. I took an internship working with a local startup where I was introduced to so many different areas of the entertainment industry. After a few months in the internship, I got pushed into what would eventually lead me into the direction of where I am today. I started to focus on marketing. I had no idea where to start. I had the little bit of schooling but never worked in that particular area. It was scary to start a new career after being in the same one for 15 years, but I knew I wanted change. I started taking on small projects for friends. I created websites, managed social media pages, and much more. I was told over and over again that I had what it takes to be huge in the industry. The passion, the drive, the focus. I finally realized what my calling was. I could be creative, use my tech skills, and help others. And in a nutshell, that is how I ended up starting #SocialKhaos Marketing in 2019.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
When I decided to start #SocialKhaos, I didn’t know if it was the right thing to do. I had a lot of doubts like many others do. I’ve worked in corporate America all my life and now I am starting a business in an industry I am not familiar with. In a city that I have only lived in for five years.

Atlanta is saturated with digital/social media marketers, website designers, and PR specialists. It makes it easy to give up because there is so much competition. We have to motivate ourselves to keep pushing. My focus is on making sure I stand out, I want my clients to know that I am there for them in every step of the process, not just marketing. I am continuously reaching out to small businesses, networking, and focusing on how I want to make myself and my business unforgettable.
