What’s the “Why” behind your business?
I wanted to create something but more encourage others to fulfill their passion.
What is one major obstacle you had to overcome to become the woman you are today?
Not worrying about what others think and just doing what makes me happy.
How will people benefit from an experience with you?
You will experience a genuine and kind person.
How do you manage being a mom and/or wife and a thriving entrepreneur?
I am blessed to have a great support system. I am not a mom yet but if there is one thing I know about moms and women, in general, is that we multitask. There is nothing we can’t get done.
Any advice for those who are struggling with being a mom and/or wife and a thriving entrepreneur?
Everything does not have to get done at once. Just start and do a little every day you will see the results.
Any advice for those who feel like they are stuck?
Just do something! No matter how small it’ll motivate you to the next thing then the next thing and before you know it you are on the way to where you want to be.
Have you ever had to deal with negative people since becoming an entrepreneur? If so, how did you handle them?
I am very sensitive to all opinions. Yes, I’ve dealt with negativity and sometimes its what I perceive as negative…you have to try to block it out. Everyone will have their opinions but you’ve got to stay true to yourself.
Any advice for those who want to become an entrepreneur?
Find something that is missing and GO for it!

I see myself running a multi-million dollar empire with my products in very well known stores.
If you could give your 18-year-old self advice, what would it be?
It’s okay to think big. Anything is possible, so go for it!
Who inspires you and why?
Oprah inspires me to live my best life and live my life with intention.
