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

Hi Olivia Davis, what is the most important factor behind your success?

We had our first event in October 2021 and as far as the success, we are nowhere near where we plan to be but I believe we’re doing the right things. The biggest factor with our success is creating a QUALITY experience. We want to make sure people are comfortable and having a good time at all our events. It’s the worst feeling when you go out and feel like you wasted your time and money. We’re building our brand with family energy, where people can come, and be themselves! We’re not here to judge. we’ll act a fool with you.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
Olivia: We both graduated from Arizona State University. We’re currently holding down our 9-5 while building Survival. It just comes down to being accountable and following through with what you want.

Daniela: Biggest thing whether it’s professional or business is staying consistent, even when it gets hard. Not giving up.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Olivia: I’d take them to a Survival event mos def! I hit Poetic soul for live music and spoken word for sure. I love Asian food so I’d definitely go to Thai Bistro downtown. I might take them on a lil road trip up north.

Daniela: Eat at Zen Thai or Sugar Jam, hit up a creek in Sedona, or go tubing at Salt River. And take them to a Survival event.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Daniela: GOD! I would like to thank God because without him all our events could not be possible. We’re able to throw events we think are cool, have people come have fun, and sell out. It’s a blessing so shoutout to God.
