 Were you a dreamer growing up? What kinds of dreams did you have?
I was a big dreamer. I actually was very smart in math and science and won lots of science fairs for a robot I built to help people with respiratory diseases in the 7th grade.
I thought that I would have a great career related to those subjects at the time. I also dreamed of traveling the world and helping people to be happy.
What made you decide to be what you have chosen as a profession today? Who were some of your earliest influences?
My hearts desire is to use my gifts to help people be FREE mentally, spiritually, physically and financially. I personally have overcame depression, low self-esteem, abuse, limiting beliefs and a poverty mentality through the grace of God. I also have family members who I care for that have battled with abuse, mental health issues, depression to the point of hospitalization and suicide attempts. I get excited about the results I see in my personal and business life through diligently working everyday towards becoming the highest version of myself. I want to show others how to do the same, let people know that they are not alone and that they are great no matter how dysfunctional their past has been I have a burning desire to see people break through this bondage and I hate to see people in despair and falling away from God's purpose in there lives.
How hard was it breaking into the business?
We hear stories all the time of people who try for years and never make it, and then other stories of overnight "in the right place at the right time" sensations. Which one do you think there's more of? Those who pay their dues, or opportunity meeting preparation?
I definitely believe that preparation is key. Embracing the process with faith and action is required in my book period. Most of the time when things come too fast they don't last. It is better to take years to build on a strong foundation based on character and purpose. IT IS SOMETHING ABOUT HAVING A WHY that is bigger than yourself, fame or fortune. Also, I view every challenge prepares me to emotionally handle the next level of my life.
How do you maintain your integrity in an otherwise very competitive and sometimes unscrupulous industry, as business at times can be cut throat?
Stay rooted in my faith. I read the bible, pray & meditate daily to make sure I am true to the highest version of myself. I also believe in Karma so I treat others how I want to be treated and if I make a mistake that is brought to my attention then I am quick to apologize and rectify misunderstandings.
