1 | Tell me about your company… What does your company do?
I am a beautiful daughter of the King as a grateful believer and I walk alongside women in moments of brokenness to turn hardship into building blocks for healing using community, vision, and positive affirmations to embrace the truth of their self worth.
2 | How long have you been in business or developing your brand?
I have been developing my brand from the moment my heart experienced extreme brokenness, shame and guilt going through the beginning stages of a divorce, over two years ago. I am currently in the final stages to launch my blog, publish my book and share my mentorship program to women all over the world.
3 | What are some challenges you have faced being an entrepreneur?
The biggest challenges I have faced as an entrepreneur is the healing process of my heart after a hurtful life transition and transforming my heart to believe of my worthiness.
4 | How much has social media impacted your business?
Social media has provided me with incredible tools to build my personal development, connect with women who share the same vision and pour into others who are hurting, even if they are across the world.
5 | What makes you unique to other professionals in your space?
The beautiful opportunity about creating my own brand is no one, anywhere, has MY story and the ability to share it like I can.
6 | What advice can you give to your fellow millennial entrepreneurs?
To my fellow female millennial entrepreneurs out there; choose joy, advocate freedom, be bold and crown up because when we discover the truth in our self worth we are unstoppable.
7 | Bossfidence is all about finding your bliss and building your confidence, how did you know that you needed to branch out from your comfort zone?
I knew I needed to branch out and be bold when I realized how suffocating the expectations of our society can be when facing struggle and big life transitions. Our society does a good job of encouraging women to be completely independent but we were made for community. Not having the people and/or resources to build a healthy community when facing hardship can lead to living in a broken state with cycles of guilt/shame or anger/bitterness. I knew I needed to share my story as well as simple steps to encourage choosing joy, acknowledging blessings and surrounding oneself with truth. I created these healthy habits with consistent and intentional actions among a community willing to invest in my heart, call me on my fluff and shed light during times of darkness. I am able to share this with others to create healing and a true sense of self worth to become obsessively grateful and unstoppable.
8 | Who is your biggest influencer or inspiration?
My biggest influence in my inner circle is Amanda Larson who dominates life by motivating others to take back the life they meant to live and helping them find their inner badass to earn the success they desire. I have had the blessing of being able to call her my best friend, jam sister and serious boss babe for Metro’s Other Women- Scottsdale AND Beyond the Berry. I will forever be grateful for having her in my life and her patience, grace and serious come-to-Jesus moments when I was a hot mess.
