Hidden Gems: South Dallas

Every day we have a choice. We can support an up and coming podcaster, try a new family-run restaurant, join a boutique gym started by a local fitness champ or we could keep giving away our money to the handful of giants who already control so much of our commerce. Our daily decisions impact the kind world we live in; if we want a world where small businesses are growing and artists and creatives are thriving then we should support them with our time, money and attention. We’re proud to highlight inspiring creatives and entrepreneurs each week in Hidden Gems series.  Check out some of South Dallas’s gems below.

Jeffrey Wilson

Growing up, I always had the dream of playing professional basketball. At a very young age, I fell in love with the game and knew that it was something I wanted to do for the rest of my life. It wasn’t until high school that I realized there was more to life than basketball. Being surrounded by a business-oriented family, I became interested in what it would take to run my own business. Read more>>

Tamisa Hunter

In order for you to understand why I am who I am today is due to my past. I should be dead today’s bottom line. I should either be in jail, up under the jail or doing Federal time. I should be crazy right now or even continue to be in an abusive relationship but God. Read more>>

Dominique Henderson

Dominique J. Henderson, Sr. began serving the financial industry in 1998. Ever since elementary school, he knew he had a mission to help people “win with their money”.

Scott Silverii

I spent over twenty-five years in law enforcement. It was the only job I’d ever known, and after twelve years working undercover, sixteen years in SWAT, and my last five years as a city chief of police, I was called by God to retire. At fifty-years-old and only four years away from a full pension, I walked away from everything I’d known and into a season of the unknown. Read more>>

Paul Clarke

In November of 2017, Paul realized he couldn’t take another sip of cheap fire station coffee. While waiting in the ambulance for police to clear a dangerous scene at 2 am, he said to his partner “Let’s start a first responder-based coffee company!” It may have been the sleep deprivation they were experiencing but Paul and his partner came up with all four names of their original coffee varieties that very moment. Read more>>
