What inspired you to start your business and why?
I was inspired to create That Soup Chic after hitting a crossroad in my life. After 20 years in the music industry (Virtue), and divorced almost 8 years; I wanted something I could be proud of, but more importantly, something that I could leave for my 12-year-old daughter. I always knew I could cook but I didn’t know it would feed me.
What does your company stand for?
That Soup Chic stands for healthy BOLDNESS. I created this company out of sheer faith because I believe in eating well to be well. Raised in New Orleans by a health-conscious mother, I knew I had to share what she taught me. Healthy food that is good for you, but also tastes amazing is another staple for me.
It doesn’t have to be bland to be healthy! I want to encourage others to be bold about their health and make good choices.
How do you create the life you want?
I wrote a post over 10 years ago on MySpace... remember that social site?! I wrote “ Create what you want to be a part of” I have always done exactly that by trying my hand at everything people said I would fail at. If we put the work in, we reap the results and the benefits. Faithing it until I make it, and going after the impossible, that’s how I create the life I want. God is my source.
Where do you find inspiration?
My source of inspiration is God and my mother, Rebecca Trotter. The most faithful, kind-hearted, smartest, creative woman I know. She raised 6 children single-handedly--without a car, she cleaned houses to afford us the best education, made our clothes, got us to church every week, provided food, a roof over our heads, and lots of love. I cannot help but be inspired to become great.
How has your business made you a better person?
That Soup Chic allows me to care for people in a way that I care for my immediate family. You instantly want the best for everyone who seeks a better way of life. Eating healthy is a better way of life. I enjoy giving my all in the kitchen. It warms my heart to know I am needed, and when I am needed, it makes me want to give more and more of myself. That makes me better. I literally get goosebumps when people tell me how much they enjoy my soup. It motivates me to keep going. We all want to be better and we all can, when we feel we’re living out our purpose.
What makes you HUMAN?
What makes me human are my flaws. My mistakes. I cry, I get discouraged, I doubt, I need help and want help. I will never allow myself to not feel emotion. Emotion is what fuels creativity. Even in those times when I’m unsure of my next step or when I mess up an entire pot of soup with one wrong seasoning. Lol! I know something great will come from it.
