Introduce yourself and profession to our readers: I am an actress turned Entrepreneur, Mentor, and Growth Junkie. I am the owner of the store My Fantasy Co. & The Fantasy Lash EyeLash Extensions. Also, I am the Founder of FANTASY LIFE, a mentoring and business leadership Organization that support Queens to become independent and successful in their act of utilizing our network. My goal is to inspire women across the globe to start and run their own business. Most importantly, to help them turn their FANTASY into reality by conquering their dreams while embracing their inner-happiness at the same time.
When The Fantasy Lash & My Fantasy Co was thought of, I realized how hard it was to get immediate help. The business coaching and mentoring programs that were available at the time were out of the budget. Paying over $700 a month for business coaching was out of the question. I felt lost, hopeless. I Didn't know how to do my website, get contacts that were needed, what steps were needed and so on. From then on, I was determined to do my very best to make sure no one ever experiences the emotional damage, the stress, and lack of hope I have experienced when trying to better myself. We at FANTASY LIFE focuses on building bonds and supporting the ideal #FANTASYgal.
What inspired you to pursue this area of interest?
My niece and Self Happiness inspires me "To do better, to be better." I realized I have someone looking up to me. I decided living every day with no purpose affects the life I can give to both my family and myself. After coming home from work continuously unhappy and drained, I realized I was affecting those around me. I was handicap due to fear; fear of change, fear of failure, and fear of trying something new. Instead of living up to my full potential, I did the easy thing and quit modeling, acting, and volunteering.
I was going the safe route of working for a small guaranteed check. This is not how life is to be lived, living paycheck to paycheck, not being able to afford for the next check to be "Short" too bad friendships that were physically emotionally draining. "IT WAS TIME FOR A CHANGE." I picked up my phone, checked some flights, and I relocated to China all in hopes of finding myself. That big move, lack of negative social media influence, and a drastic improvement of self-confidence helped me to grow closer to GOD. From there I developed a long needed spiritual relationship that completely changed my outlook on life.
