What gets you out of bed every day?
I am super in love with the fact that I get to inspire others to step into their power every single day. It drives me so deeply to know that I can touch one person's life every single day. That to me, that's success.
Why St. Pete?
Everyone wants to be in Tampa Bay. There's so much innovation happening here. From restaurants to businesses to millennial communities to the ONE building. This is the place to be, it's thriving and there's so much excitement.
What is one habit that you keep?
Meditation. I make it a point to meditate every single day. It centers me and sets an intention for the day and allows me to be one with that particular day.
who are some people that influence you?
Brene Brown. I love her message, I love her raw and realness. I lover her vulnerability talks. In particular, one thing that really touched me especially in the space that I'm in is that she said wholeheartedness is about engaging with the world from a place of worthiness. And that really touched me. Being a wholehearted person to me means not allowing other people's opinions to stop you from doing what you want to do and make the impact that you want to make.
What is one piece of insight - a book, methodology, practice - that you would share with our readers?
Daring Greatly was a huge impact on me - to be an authentic leader and to tap into leadership skills. I think that book is great for entrepreneurs or anybody looking to capitalize on leadership skills.
What is one thing you wish you knew about your work 3 years ago?
I wish I didn't care so much what everyone thought. Stepping out as an entrepreneur, a lot of people don't understand that. They don't get not making any money while you're hustling to make money or to start something that you're passionate about or that is purpose driven. I wish I knew back then not to let other people's opinions hinder my growth.
My good friend and business partner and I are launching a business called The Social Diet, I'm an influencer in the social media space. We're really creating blueprints and templates for other entrepreneurs or influencers to have a tangible item to learn how to tell their story, learn how to be on video, learn how to get their message to the world in the way that they want to and grow a following that knows, likes, and trusts them.
