Introduce yourself and tell us about what inspired your professional pursuits:
Hello everyone my name is Atia Sherrod, I'm the owner and founder of #Lovethyself™. I started #Lovethyself™ because of my passed failed relationships and marriage. I dealt with men and people who seemed to suck the life out of me and in turn with me trying to be there for others I ended up falling out of love with myself, which is a huge no no! I never thought I would start my own business, I wanted to be a singer/ songwriter but my road of life had its own detour! One day I was in the movie theater with my now ex husband and I had made a post to let women know that just because you see the next woman traveling, she has expensive this, expensive that don't look at your life like you FAILED because you didn't. I received so many compliments and thank you's and not even realizing at the end of the post I put "#Lovethyself." It seemed like me reading those messages a light went off and from there I started grinding! I recently hosted a women's empowerment event with the lovely MinaSayWhat! from Power99fm as well as motivational speaker Ayana Iman! After the event was over people couldn't believe it was my first event and from there I haven't stopped!
What advice would you share with ladies interested in a similar pursuit?
The best advice I would give women all around the globe would be to love yourself unconditionally, never let no man nor woman belittle you and have you believing you're not amazing because you are!
What is next for you in 2017?
Hmm... what's next for #Lovethyself™? Well we will be hosting more empowerment events to teach women how to build their brands by networking and marketing and closing deals! We're looking to start traveling to different states to bring the love so hopefully we'll see you in your state soon!
