What Inspired your start in entrepreneurship? 

I wanted to be my own boss, but also not be limited or boxed into what someone else thought was best for me. Being an entrepreneur allows me to have free range and space to be my best self.

What obstacles have you had to overcome to get where you are today? 

I have to overcome disappointment, heartache, two brain surgeries, and get out of my own way. Life happens every day, however, how I responded and continue to respond determines my future.

What message of hope do you have for upcoming entrepreneurs?

You can have anything you want in this world, you just have to be steadfast in the process! Create a routine to keep yourself grounded and mentally at peace and nothing can stop you. Also, find your tribe. You only need 2-3 people to hold you accountable and they can continue to help you push forward.

What are your top 3 go-to songs for motivation to keep going after your goals?  

Oh, my top 3 songs to keep me motivated 

Silk Sonic – Leave The Door Open

2k17 by Sada Baby ( ahah don’t judge me this song keeps me hyped)

Love Thing by Spice Girls

What is your definition of a pretty woman who hustles

A pretty woman who hustles is selfless, fearless, and untouchable. She embodies grace and isn’t moved by the naysayers, haters, confused, or worried. She understands her assignment, and never loses sight! I am a Pretty Woman Who Hustles!
