Tell us a bit about yourself! How did you get started with your current career path/business journey?My career started out working for Fortune 500 companies, Toshiba and Canon, working in the Consumer Electronics space. When comparing how far we have come with technology, you can say I most definitely have seen the trends change. What has not changed is; how we use technology. As it is still a integral part of our success, no matter if building a business or a personal brand.
How are you overcoming challenges during the pandemic as a business owner?
In 2018 I strategically added a digital agency to my repertoire of business services. I have worked in a traditional business model of exchanging time for money with my branding agency. I knew in order to make a bigger impact, I need to have a bigger footprint, the only way to successfully achieve this was to go digital. I took the avenue of digital course creation.
During the start of the quarantine in my home in NYC, I had already written 3 courses that I was planning to slowly release. In 105-days of “lock down”, I revamped my business plan and pushed up my launch dates for the courses, which have to do with mindset, launching your own online course and my signature program is ‘How To Build Your Brand in 30-Days”.
As many have been reassessing their own businesses, or making the leap into entrepreneurship, I found the demand to be high with others wanting to launch their business but not knowing where to begin. I give them the step by step blueprint on how, while offering multiple touchpoints to monetize swiftly. For those wanting to launch their own courses, I also offer a course creation offering. By adding these services during the climate we are living in, I am able to guide more women towards creating their own financial freedom in an uncertain time.
What behavior or personality trait do you most attribute your success to, and why?
I am often told I am tenacious and FEARLESS when it comes to pursuing my passions and building my business.
I was blessed by two loving parents who instilled a strong work ethic and me and taught me that I could have anything I wanted if I worked for it. I have never forgotten the sacrifices they made for me, and I work smart and work hard to accomplish the vision I have for my life. Everything I do is to create my family legacy.
I recently lost my Father amidst this quarantine and everything I do now, has so much more meaning when it comes to building legacy brands.
