What does your typical day look like?
Alarm goes off. Walk my dog Yogi. Read Bible and pray on my balcony facing the ocean. Eat breakfast and caffein-ate. Handle matters within MADSTUDIOS. Follow up with Creative Chicks In Business Team. Talk to Mom. Answer emails. Post on IG. Work out. Answer more emails. Work on music project. Cook and feed husband. Walk Yogi. Watch Netflix series and spend time with husband (currently Designated Survivor). Sleep & repeat :)
What motivates you?
The fact that I still have breath in my lungs is the clearest indication that God's not done with me yet. Knowing that I have a ton of people that depend on me inspires and motivates me to be a better version of myself.
What is the best advice you were given?
The best advice I was given was not to be so hard on myself. It's okay to have expectations and personal goals but it's important to remember to have grace for yourself.
What is your definition of success?
You never succeed unless you've learned through failure. Success to me is being happy and content with where you're at. Enjoy the process.
What do you want to achieve in the upcoming year personally & professionally ?
I have set a goal to release a music project as I haven't released any music material in over 5 years. My EP "M.I.A." will be released in the beginning of 2019. I've also set out to seek funding for my company MADSTUDIOS to add key features and fundamental resources to the platform. We're also looking to expand our team this year. Aside from all of this, I want to take more vacations to travel with my husband and read more books.
How do you want to use you're strength to give back to the community?
Coaching, mentoring, sharing my story , and loving on my community.
What is the biggest challenge you have in your business?
Why did you decide to join The Emery?
It's always great to be surrounded by women of like mindedness. It's empowering to meet new friends who are on a similar journey and looking to collaborate and make each other better.
