Skitzo- When did you decide you wanted to start a career in the publishing field?
Danni- Hmmmmmm it was like 13 years ago in Florida I saw a Mag called Ozone owned by a woman and I remember thinking if she can do it I can do it to. I used to cut out pictures from other publications and glue them on construction paper and make my own make-shift magazine it was called “Real Talk although it was never published it was the beginning stages of manifestation.
Talk about the law of attraction here I am 2 yrs later, owner & editor of 2 of my own magazines. Prior to that I always wanted to be featured in someone’s Mag like “Word Up” because I had plans on being a famous rapper, and actress lol.
Skitzo- Though you started your magazine here in the United States, what drove you to shoot towards creating more of an international magazine?
Danni- Well I have a background in Real Estate which led to me becoming a commodities broker doing import/export and I realized it’s a whole world out there to explore and my dreams are bigger than America. Furthermore I love different cultures and learning to say hello in different languages. Sooo I knew if I went global I could connect people with people from around the world and bring something new and exciting to the entertainment industry.
Skitzo- Where did the name London Le Blanc come from?
Danni-Oh my goshhhhhhhhhh. It means the white London in French. However that’s not what I meant lol, I wanted an upscale name for my cosmetic line so I came up with London Le’Blanc. And as you can see I’m branding myself so I call everything I do “Le’Blanc” something.
Skitzo- How did it feel when you published your first major artist in London Le’ Blanc?
Danni- Ummmm I dunno it was crazy…all of them felt the same…like a dope accomplishment. My first major artist was a Ghanaian recording artist named Shatta Wale and he was flying high back then, and he had just won multiple awards. It was such an honor. I still love “My Eye Pon Di Money.”
Skitzo- Most people stick to a focal point in their magazines, for example modeling, acting,etc, what made you incorporate them all into your magazines?
Danni- Well because I didn’t want to get bored. And I wanted to be able to capture everyone’s attention and I was able to do just that in my other magazine. Besides, it was kind of a marketing tactic as well on my part. I figured the more people involved the bigger my network would be and it worked.
Skitzo- What advice would you give those interested in starting or following their dreams? Danni- Just do it. Think about it, get a plan together KEEP THAT SH*T TO YOURSELF, don’t tell nobody unless they are involved…and go for it. No time like the present time.
Skitzo- I understand you have two magazines out at this time, dropping both on a monthly bases. Could we be in for a treat for magazine number 3?
Danni-Yessssssssssssss sir. I actually started working with my photographer last year on this project. I’m not giving a release date or name just know the models will be smoking hottttt, and Rated R not suitable for children.
Skitzo- What do you feel have been the most important keys to your success?
Danni- Faith, patience, persistence, hard work, and I’m NOT taking no for an answer. I’m not anywhere close to where I want to be but I’m no where near where I was.
Skitzo- How many campaigns have you been involved in or help start or even started on your own?
Danni- #OperationLightsOn to raise awareness for the billions of people living without electricity. I participated in an anti bullying campaign, and now my latest one Latex Or No Sex…the STD rate is crazy.
Skitzo- What is Danielle’s goal for 2017?
Danni-To be the best Danni I can be, and to practice what I preach and continue to lead by example. Oh yeah and I’d like to make my first million this year…it would be soooooo nice right? LMAO!
