What makes your world turn?
My friendships with other women, and my relationships with my animals. Both so important in exercising my womanhood. My relationship with the women in my life who offer support and perspective is absolutely invaluable. My relationship with my animals fulfills my nurturing side which is really the essence of who I am. Giving to beings who are pure and deserve every ounce of love I have to give makes me feel whole.
Your most insecure moment in life and how you tackled it?
My recent split and subsequent divorce has been the most difficult experience of my life. It was an emotional and often times physically abusive relationship, and It was hard not to succumb to the criticisms and fall prey to the actions of my partner at the time. I’m now on my journey of healing and realizing that no one can stop me from doing what I love and being my best self, except me.
A pivotal moment in your life so far?
Advice to women trying to make a make it in this world?
As a small business owner - I would say to dream big but create small attainable goals for yourself each month or even just each year. Success isn’t a numbers game, for me anyway, it’s reaching those finish lines I’ve set for myself and doing it with grace and absolute style.
What is the best and worst thing about being female?
It’s almost as if the best and the worst thing are one. The consistent doubt that I’ve experienced across the board in work environments that I am really anything other than the face and body I’ve been given. We as women are faced with the idea that we are incapable of most things, and if not incapable than at least inferior to a male counterpart. I am smart, strong, kind, nurturing and also capable of anything a man is.
What makes that the best thing?
If you were given the power to successfully change 1 thing in the world, what would it be? (PS we know you can do this,you have the power)
