Q. If you could give your past self some advice, what would you tell yourself?
I would tell her to not give up. It’s never too late to start over — ever! To surround yourself with people who will encourage you not to give up. The key to success and growth lies in self-motivation and a focused approach toward your personal and professional goals. I have always learned from my mentors to believe that the world doesn’t need us to think smaller, but rather to dream bigger, be bolder, and determine what makes our dreams come true.
Q. What is your number one business goal to accomplish this year?
I am passionate about developing and leading growth and scaling opportunities aligned with our long-term goals. My goal is to help my team at Okoko Cosmétiques with their professional growth and recognizing their full potential. I want to help them take responsibility and grasp the freedom and confidence to make their own decisions. I want to help my company grow to new heights and secure benefits and security for my team members and partners alike.
Q. What is your favourite thing about what you do in your career and why?
I love exploring new avenues for personal and professional growth, connecting with new people in the skincare industry, and playing with numbers. It gives me great pleasure to connect and build my network. I like to learn the ins and outs of the industry in order to overcome new challenges.
Q. Do you have a mantra or phrase you live by? What is it?
A dream does not become a reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination, and hard work. A career takes the highway when motivation is in the driver’s seat.
Q. What keeps you motivated on a daily basis?
I have always been motivated by the desire to meet a deadline. Setting and reaching deadlines gives me such a sense of accomplishment. I love creating an organized schedule for completing a task and achieving my goals on time. For example, when I ran a fundraising event last year, I set multiple deadlines for a variety of tasks leading up to the event. Achieving each milestone motivated me to keep working and helped me ensure that the event ran smoothly. I’m motivated by mining data. Give me a spreadsheet and questions, and I will determine the numbers. In my current position, I prepare the monthly analytics report around sales. The data from these reports helps drive and determine how the company charts its next steps and form sales goals for the following months. Being able to provide that essential information is extremely motivating.
Q. What is your number one priority when it comes to your career and daily work?
I am driven by results. I thrive when I have a concrete goal and the time to develop a strong strategy.
