What inspired you to start your business and why?: My company is a lifestyle brand and I started to encourage others, specifically black women, to live their best lives through achieving wellness. I am a counselor and a yoga teacher so I provide plenty of wellness tips, daily inspiration, yoga tutorials, and everything in between on a relatable level. I started this through my own personal journey of achieving wellness. I lost my father as a young women to suicide and I was the one that found him dead. So I suffer from various mental diagnoses but I know how to cope through them through the things I’ve learned from counseling and yoga
What does your company stand for?: Providing a wellness platform for black women
How do you create the life you want?: Through affirmations, self reflection, meditation, and journaling.
Where do you find inspiration?: I find inspiration through various meditations and bible study.
How has your business made you a better person?: My business helps me practice what I preach to the fullest. I can not be out here teaching women about wellness and loving their best lives if I am not doing it myself.
What makes you HUMAN?: I have days where I’m simply not motivated, when I’m sad, angry, and aggravated but I never shun those emotions away, I allow myself to feel them and experience them. I also am unapologetically myself so whether that means I’m bumping Cardi B on my way to my meditation class then that’s just what it is.
