If you could use five words to describe yourself, what would they be?
Consistency, Confident, Transparency, Durable, and Progression
When did you develop your passion and interest in entrepreneurship?
I never had a passion for entrepreneurship, to be honest with you, or any interest. I had bills that needed to be paid and another job had fired me. I was scared, stressed, and pressed for cash and I only had a few weeks. Like a photo, I developed in the dark, the darkest moments and times of my life are what pushed me to progress into the woman I am today. It’s so inspiring today to look at me and see the finished product but once upon a time, it was just straight desperation. I’m passionate about my sanity peace and happiness and I feel like what interested me was the authority over my life and the situations I got myself into being able to get myself out of.
What inspired the Wealthy College Kid brand?
I couldn’t think of a name to save my life, so I ended up looking in the mirror and trying to describe what I am Vs what I was basically at the time I was a broke college kid and I didn’t want to be rich because the word rich just seems short term to me. Wealth seemed like a lifetime difference in income so I described future me as a wealthy college kid.
You have navigated the workforce and entered entrepreneurship while staying true to yourself. What has been the biggest challenge thus far in your entrepreneurship journey?
Honestly maintaining social skills it’s easy for me to get consumed with texting and typing rather than using my words to communicate in real life. I’ve always struggled using my words to express my emotions my feelings in real life because I’m spending so much time online. And understanding money management and taxes making sure I do everything by the book and correctly.
What did your years in the workforce teach you about entrepreneurship and running your own business?
My workforce was serving captain and coke to beg for 20$ tips before happy hour ended, to be frank with you. But what it did teach me was presentation I’m very camera friendly and well-spoken on camera and in interviews, I think that played a part.
What tips do you have for aspiring entrepreneurs looking to start their own companies?
Consistency is the best tip because you can outlast the competition you can learn so much from trying everything possible and putting as much as you can in with your time before you ever must spend money.
What would you say is the key to longevity in entrepreneurship?
Consistency and the pure drive of having a work ethic.
What is your definition of a Pretty Woman Who Hustles?
