How do you define success?
Success is freedom. Doing what you love on your own terms allows you to live a life that is free.
What makes your company unique?
Our network works with small businesses to create content that assists in the marketing and promotion of their businesses. As companies continue to look for diverse voices, our network serves as a place businesses can go to obtain quality content creation.
Who in the industry inspires you and why?
Jamilah Lemieux. She is a black woman in media who has carved her own path and created a brand that allows her to live a life that works for her. She’s a single mom like me and the way she is able to balance motherhood with her career is inspiring. I also think she’s an amazing writer and creative.
What is a tip for success that you would provide someone in your same industry?
Be unafraid to ask and demand to be paid your worth. I’ve learned the hard way that people will try to discount your services. Don’t let anyone try to diminish your value. Even if it means walking away from a potential opportunity.
