About Us

 

The last name combination may have been a coincidence, but the idea of Living Rich™ came from simply playing the hand they had been dealt. A mother who faced things many would consider a set-back, but never allowing that to stop her. A daughter who witnessed many of their hardships, but this mature young lady helped her mother see the good in every situation. Driven by the highs and lows in life, they decided to create a brand without limits but much purpose. Living Rich™ is Sharia Livingston & Sha’Miah Richardson.

It wasn’t until Sharia became a mother that she really got a taste of the real world. Having her daughter so young, she didn’t get to live the life that most of the kids did her age. At the age of seventeen she had to quickly fall into the role of being a mother, while still learning how to be a young woman herself. Going to parties, movies, and just kickin it came to a halt. Although it changed her whole world it wasn’t the end of it. For her it was a new beginning. Despite the criticism she received and how many people doubted her, she used that as motivation to keep pushing and prove them wrong. Sharia was making her own rules, setting new standards, and she refused to live with the stereotype of a typical "teen mom". Instead of staying in a lane directed to her, she was too busy creating her own.

Growing up Sharia was always a tomboy, it wasn’t until her early 20’s that she started to embrace her “girly” side a little more. Give her a nice fit t-shirt, jeans, a pair of pumps or tennis shoes, and she was straight. She knew how to make a little go a long way, so she would always shop smart. At the time, she couldn’t afford some of the clothes she wanted to buy but just like her life, she knew her outfit was going to be whatever she made it to be. Paired with the right thing and the confidence to match who could possibly tell her what her outfit was worth! Sharia was defining her Rich and didn’t even realize it at the time. A few more years of growing, maturing, and raising Sha’Miah…the pieces started to fall in place.

Sha’Miah, she’s the driving force behind all Sharia’s hard work. When things would be rough for them it never showed through her. She was always a happy and understanding kid. In her eyes everything was always going to be ok. Sha’Miah was the reason her mother found the good in every tough situation they faced. Being the only child and alongside her mother through their entire journey, you can imagine the type of work ethic she’s obtained. Still growing, making mistakes, and learning like most kids, Sha’Miah continues to strive to not only make her mother proud, but also make a powerful impact on someone else. Learning every day to choose purpose over popularity…instead of following the trends she’s determined to set them. It was the growth that they’ve experienced together that inspired them to begin defining their own Rich…
