Do you have a mantra or phrase you live by?
“With imagination comes great power-let it be your guide.” This is a sentence that sticks in my mind… and is what I always inscribe at my ‘Happy Hippos Have Healthy Hips, book signings to children. Anything and everything starts with a dream. As children, we’re often told to get our heads out of the clouds and stop daydreaming. I say, dream BIG instead. Everything in this world that you can see, that was built, designed, and created started with one thing… a DREAM.
So, keep dreaming and take action, and you will achieve your wildest dreams.
What keeps you motivated on a daily basis?
As an entrepreneur with many businesses, they all motivate me for different reasons. Of course, as we all are, I’m motivated to succeed to provide for my family and have all the “options” in the world for my children, however, what truly lights my fire is helping others to succeed. When I get to legitimately help someone in some way, I feel completely fulfilled. I love sharing information, guiding others to achieve their dreams, and help you share your true authentic voice propels me forward.
Staying motivated as an entrepreneur must be instilled in our blood. One cannot be an entrepreneur without being pulled to over-achieve. We’re constantly in competition with ourselves. I’m always motivating myself to be more and do more. I must stay in motion to keep on track. Success and achievement propel me forward; seeing results and helping others succeed is what single handily motivates me like no other. I chose to go back to business consulting on the side while running my own businesses, because I missed the look on my client’s faces when their businesses started to fly, or when helping them build something totally new from scratch to help feed their children started to succeed. As entrepreneurs, often we don’t get a pat on the back, so this is what I absolutely love doing for others. Being an actual supportive boss babe is why we started MPOWRN Apparel – to remind women how strong you are, and to keep empowering yourself and others.
If you could give your past self some advice, what would you tell yourself?
I would tell her that she’ll be alright; to keep her head up and know that what she’s going through isn’t happening to her, it’s happening for her. That when she’s older, all her life trauma will find purpose and she’ll be even stronger because of it.
What is your number one business goal to accomplish this year?
Great question! To be honest, I have many many many little goals, and my biggest goal is to sell the license of my patent to the largest hanger manufacturer in the world and be on the front of Forbes Magazine. Dream BIG… then go even BIGGER.
What do you have going on that you’d like to share?
Thanks for asking. We’re excited to have recently launched Halo Hangers, the first ever Patented Hoodie Hangers and are in the process of meeting with investors to take our company to the next level. Halo Hangers was invented for hang drying hooded garments; jackets, coats, hoodies, even bras, and are also space saving in the closet.
