We had the good fortune of connecting with Chari Davis and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Chari, do you have some perspective or insight you can share with us on the question of when someone should give up versus when they should keep going?
This is a question I, along with so many across the world, have been facing amid the current pandemic crisis, when so many things have been put into perspective, and the ultimate answer is: never, ever, ever give up. To give up on something is complete abandonment of hopes and dreams, of work and passion, and no one should ever surrender their hope. When times get tough, and in life, they always will at some point, its so important to prioritize the important things in your life. If you find that what you’ve been aiming or laboring for isn’t getting you where you dream of being, or isn’t bringing you the success and happiness you deserve, then take a good hard look at what it is you want, and correct course in your life to make that happen. It’s ok to change paths, to take different roads, to make a 180 in your life and choose to go a different direction, just make sure that your consistently upgrading and heading for that which your soul truly desires.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
I own and operate 3 businesses. Wolf Feather Honey Interiors is an intimately sized hospitality and residential interior design firm located in southern california which specializes in hand curated, selectively crafted environments that focus on creating meaningful spaces that tell the owner’s story, evoking emotions of nostalgia, warmth and effortless cool, with a sprinkle of eclecticism on top. Wolf Feather Honey Farm + THE INTREPID WILD is a 20 acre Farm nestled peacefully above the rolling hills of Southern California’s Temecula Wine Country. Although scoring an open reservation at this internationally recognized bohemian escape, celebrity hideout and jet set creative compound might flirt with one’s waiting skills (on average there is a 6 to 12 month waiting period to get in), it certainly is well worth the wait for it is a place unlike any other that awakens the soul, enticing the spirit of pure relaxation, wellness and artistic enlightenment, in an environment rich with natural beauty, history and love, bringing guests worlds away from the many stresses of life. The Jackson Pearl: A Gathering Place is the newest venture, this time located on the Gulf of Mexico, in an artistically driven little seaside town call Ocean Springs, Mississippi, a soft, breezy stretch just outside the city of New Orleans. Encompassing the pure magic that Wolf Feather Honey emphasizes, it is a design forward, historic warehouse wedding and special event venue, built for the sophisticated bohemians, the artists, and the original beauty seekers, providing an atmosphere the encourages uniqueness, creative inspiration and a feeling of welcomed belonging for everyone.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
First, I would prepare a 3 course home cooked meal, #TheHoneySupperClub style, with fresh ingredients from Temecula’s infamous Old Town Farmer’s Market, paired with wines locally sourced from Temecula Wine Country, set a candlelit table with flowers foraged from the farm on #theintrepidwild hilltop, where we would dine under the stars and catch up. The next day, I would take them on a wine tasting tour throughout Temecula Wine Country, enjoy Happy hour in Old Town Front Street then complete our evening by dining at one of the coolest restaurants of the area called Finch, located just down the road in Wildomar, designed by yours truly. The next morning, San Diego here we come! With our overnight bags packed, we’d head to Sand Diego’s world famous beautiful coastline, check into a VRBO to achieve a more authentic “local living” vibe and hit the beach! The next few days we’d go exploring; maybe take a ferry to Coronado or take a culinary tour of the Gaslamp District to take in some history. We’d visit Balboa Park for the museums, and maybe even a Zoo day, and surely we’d check out the street art murals of Barrio Logan, and even take a day to hike down to the tide pools at Cabrillo National Monument in Point Loma.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
The Bible and Jesus Christ.
