Hello! My name is Tance Hughes and I am an entrepreneur based in Vidalia, Louisiana. Our company, Southern Designs, was started when I was 17 years old. Our team has grown the company to almost $4 million in revenue in 2016 and was named to the Inc. 5000 at #558! We are the 9th fastest growing company in Louisiana, in a town of only 4,299 residents. I was recently named to the Forbes 30 Under 30 as well.

I am starting to share videos and posts about how we are trying to make a difference in one of America’s many stagnant small communities. So many young entrepreneurs today are forced to look for jobs in larger cities as urbanization continues to grow rapidly. We want to offer those who are looking to live their life in a small, rural community the opportunity and ability to do so!
