I enjoy helping women, mamas, & visionaries to reset and realign their lives, and build a foundation that sets the standard & that creates an overall holistic balance and vitality for the 8 pillars of life. I provide products & services to help with Her’ healing journey.
What inspire you to start your business?
I've always been a serial entrepreneur but being in the healthcare industry for 14+ years then having to stop due to my own health challenges. I had to pivot and go through my own healing transition, which led me to create a safe space for other mothers, who are often busy and feeling burned out to heal, build, grow & dominate. I believe we are stronger together. So why not heal together?
Looking at where you are now what would you tell your younger self?
Stop Worrying. It always works out in the end. Stay persistent, your vibe attracts your tribe so consistently work on self-mastery to become your highest self.
What is the biggest challenge you face being a woman in business?
I don't see any challenge women can't overcome. We all face diverse challenges and during that stretch, an environment is created for growth. I see a challenge as an opportunity to grow.
What advice would you give an aspiring female entrepreneur who are just starting their journey?
Fail forward fast. Don't get stuck on a lost opportunity or a failed project that doesn't go your way. Become the creator, take your time, and enjoy the process. There are lessons there.
What do you wish more people knew about YOU?
I am a work in progress just like you. I will always be reinventing myself.
In what ways do you believe woman can uplift and empower each other?
Healing together, supporting each other, showing up for one another
How do you maintain self care while running a business?
Having a morning routine is important to me. Being able to rise up before everyone. Time with God, taking my quality supplements, workingout, and taking a breath as often as I need to. Self-care to me is keeping my mind body & environment at peace.
Is there anything else you would like to share about your journey to experience?
I am a masterpiece and work in progress at the same time
