How would you describe yourself in one sentence?
Beautiful, passionate and intelligent being with the desire to empower others to see the same in themselves.
When did you discover your passion for entrepreneurship!
I personally come from a family of entrepreneurs. My dad started his first business when I was in middle school I spent my childhood teenage years developing and working in my parents businesses. When I went to college, I focused on school, but during my last year, I started a business. It was a clothing brand. I eventually put that business on hold to go to law school while I was in law school. I got my first official job working at a personal injury law firm. While I was super passionate about helping our clients I highly disliked the lack of control over my own life, when we go to work, we give up so much control. We’re literally brainwashed into believing that we must rely on that job to become the best version of ourselves.
The universe has a funny way of giving you exactly what you want because during the pandemic I was fired. I had a choice. I could either find another job or start a business. I’m so happy that I chose the latter I made $10,000 in my first two weeks of starting business and within the first year of me having my own law firm I now have class action lawsuits against some of America’s largest corporations, and my fir has partnered with the largest law firm in America. What’s even better I can do what I want when I want. For instance, I’m going to Jamaica next week and I decided that yesterday I just want that for everyone.
You have been in business for several years, what sets you apart from other consultants ?
Im not one to brag on myself, but that esq, stands for lawyer. Theres a ton of consultants out here that have not bene forally tained to educate on what they teach. Not only have I been trained but I have literally spent my entire life as an entrepreneaur. Fianlly, What sets me apart as an attorney and a business consultant is I don’t lead with profit in mind I lead with impact I have become successful, because I love helping people I don’t. I’m not inspired by how much money I can make or you know things that I can buy I’m inspired by transforming the lives of others. what
What can customers expect when consulting or hiring you? What do you hope they take away from their experience?
I wish that I can say that it’s always a pleasant experience but when you are working on transforming the lives of others, sometimes the experience can get a bit intense working with me is just that intense and transformative. I help people see the highest version of themselves, which is not always so fun, but it’s always transformative, and it always comes with results that are life-changing. I am very passionate so i give every part of me to my client, we dont only take a deep dive into their business but we also do some shadow work to become better in every area of our life.
What advice do you have for women who aspire to become an entrepreneur ?
The best advice that I can give it to any woman, wanting to be an entrepreneur is the same advice that I would tell my younger self I’d say, just start sis don’t be afraid you can accomplish anything that you put your mind to. You’re going to be tested along the way pass those tests Babe, on the other side of your fears is the life of your dreams, so embrace your fears embrace changes embrace growth. You’ll love yourself in the end.
Where do you hope to see your brand in the next 3-5 years?
In the next 3 to 5 years, my goal is to transform more lives than I have. I know I’ve made an impact today, but I want my impact to be greater but that being said I want to host more in person events and provide more hands-on training I’ll be launching a mentorship group within the next few weeks. I’m going to be sure to keep the price and expensive because I don’t feel that education and one’s desire to change should cost them an arm and a leg through this mentorship group. I hope to provide education, resources, tools, and a community for women to connect with each other and grow together. I hope to make several more millionaires and unleash the best version of several thousand women.
What is your definition of a Pretty Woman Who Hustles?
Wow, I’m so glad you asked before I answer this question I want to talk a little bit about my clothing brand I started my clothing brand the last year of college and I personally design T-shirts on Photoshop that said real women hustle. The reason I started this brand is because at the time the most popular shows only had to do with women being successful, and their success being tied to a man all the while I was going to be embarking on a journey to becoming an attorney, which no man can revive me. I only could do myself so the definition to me of a pretty woman who has those is a woman that Becomes the best version of herself becomes the version of herself that God intended her to be and she doesn’t allow anything to get in her way of becoming just that now I’m sure the word pretty to some people seems subjective. Beauty comes from within an any woman who loves herself enough, and is brave enough to show up as the the best version of yourself as a pretty woman who hustles.
