Meet Allana Rollerson of Pin’D Up Energy

Pin’D Up Energy was bred from the unfortunate social injustices that have been occurring in the USA. As a black mom, we’re dealt a different hand, from a completely different deck. It’s rewarding and scary, joyous, yet full of anxiety…these pins were created by a single #BlackBoyMom wanting the world to know how proud she is to be blessed with her baby boy.

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
This journey has been challenging due to my hectic schedule and being a one woman army. I’m a full-time mother, employee, and now, entrepreneur. The reward of building a business for my son is worth every sleepless night!

We’ve been impressed with Pin’D Up Energy LLC, but for folks who might not be as familiar, what can you share with them about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Pin’D Up Energy is a brand of #BlackExpressive enamel pins, designed with US in mind. These pins are designed by me and my four years old son. We wanted to use our creativity to bring awareness to the various aspects of our culture. We’re most proud of that! What better way to create generational wealth than to include him in the decisions being made? We’ve begun a series of events that creates a platform for local black businesses to network and build together. The success of our businesses is a community effort.

What has been the most important lesson you’ve learned along your journey?
Take the time to invest in yourself just as much as your business. When you’re at your best, you’d be surprised what you can do. I pray as hard as I work. I have to take days off. I have to slow down sometimes and pay attention to my surroundings, in this industry and others as well. Beautiful things come from patience and perseverance. Never underestimate yourself and continue to press toward the mark. Your outcome is only as great as your effort.

    What an inspiring story. It’s great to see young Black women in pursuit of innovative entrepreneurial pathways. Wealth and opportunity will not come to you and fall in your lap. You must be a go-getter and with faith and motivation blaze trails and make things happen. Clearly this young Lady sees that. Vision and foresight; we need more of that! Kudos and I pray continued success in your endeavor. Prayerfully her business will be supported by more people, but purposely by Blacks now that more of us should know about her business. Purchase a pin for your child or grandchild! Whatever you do, purchase and support!
