How did you get into what you do right now? Please tell us more about your journey.
I started my journey on social media by collaborating with a friend on YouTube in 2019. From there I worked really hard to continue my growth and later on becoming an entrepreneur.
What habits / strategies / secrets do you feel help you succeed?
Being consistent, hard working, faithful, strong and having good time management. Setting goals and having to do list has helped as well.
What is the most important factor behind your success / the success of your brand?
Staying consistent and being strong. You have to constantly be working and you have to have thick skin to handle what comes at you on the internet and from people. If it wasn’t for my faith, I think my mindset & life would be a lot different.
What has your business or career taught you? What is the most important lesson?
How did you overcome challenges professionally to get where you are today?
Having a great circle around me. My friends and family play a big role in how I handle situations and decisions I make.
How are you using different social media channels / online marketing to advertise your work?
I find working on every media you can is best. YouTube, tiktok, Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram. Do everything you can!
How do the social, economic, environmental, technological, legal, and political environments impact your business?
I think by keeping your opinions to yourself will help you succeed. You will not please everyone . Keeping your personal life off the internet is always safer and smart. It’s a tricky thing to navigate and one of the hardest.
How would you describe your customers?
Loyal, supportive & amazing.
What sets you apart from others / competitors? What are you most excited or proud of?
I try to tie my faith into everything I do. As I gotten older I’ve realized what’s most important to me and what’s not. Being authentically myself and not changing my ways or appearance to please the standers these days is what I think sets me apart. I’m most excited about my clothing line dropping.
What inspires you? What keeps you going when things get tough?
My family and always wanting to do my best. I love working and I love helping others. Even when times are tough I try to think about the bigger picture and how holding onto negativity won’t take me to the next step it will only hold me back.
Looking back, what’s one thing you wish you understood better before you ever got started?
No matter what you do or say people will not please everyone.
We all have people that have supported us through our journey either by mentorship, encouragement, or love. Who deserves some recognition or credit? And why?
Of course my friend DDG who helped start my career, my family for keeping me grounded, helping me with work and being there emotionally for me. Some friends that have pushed me out of my comfort zone and supported me no matter what, Kish, Stacks, jahkoy, jordan, karen, gady, ally, alyssa, bianca, cpdub & my cousins.
What’s your greatest fear?
I dont know.
What’s your most memorable experience?
When I walked in Miami Swim Week.
Any message for our readers?
Never wait around for anything in life. Start whatever it is just start your already ahead of the people just thinking about it. And always stay true to yourself. Never be afraid to disconnect yourself from people that don’t share the same values or hustle as you. People in your corner sometimes hold you back.
If you were to recommend a book / documentary, what would it be? and why?
The Bible & how to talk to anyone. The Bible will help you through any situation you may be facing. How to talk to anyone is a good book that helps you have better conversations with people you meet.
