Who inspires you?
There are many women who have inspired me at different times of my life. I’m grateful for them all.
What do you hope to inspire in other women?
A sense of self-worth and the courage to follow their dreams. And most importantly, embracing what makes you unique as a person.
Is there an example you can share of how another woman has lifted you up?
Absolutely! I have a group of close friends in a text group chat and we constantly cheer one another on daily/weekly. We share stories of triumph and help resolve issues in any way that we can. It’s a sisterhood of support.
How has confidence played a role in your life?
Having confidence in myself propelled me to push through doors I never had imagined myself walking through. Lack thereof can be extremely toxic and prevent you from reaching your highest potential. Thankfully, I’ve overcome many of my insecurities.
What's the best part of your job? As an entrepreneur, it’s the freedom to choose what I want to focus my energy on each day and motivating others to live their best lives. I love to see others shine!
What are you most proud of? Walking away from my 9-5 job and successfully providing for my son as a full-time entrepreneur.
What has been the most useful advice you've received?
Always maintain control of your time and finances. Time is precious and time is money. Don’t waste it.
What is your motto or mantra? “There’s room for us all to win.” And “If it doesn’t make you feel fabulous, let it go!”
What are you most excited for next?
Creating my own talent management company to highlight the amazing talents and gifts of other women. Additionally, creating my own music project soon.
