Introduce yourself and tell us about your brand: My name is Kimberly "Isis" Thomas. The creator of "I Hear That Girl!" an empowerment lifestyle brand that provides positive, inspiring, and motivating content and experiences for black women.
What inspired your professional pursuits and how is your platform unique? The void of positive perspectives for women of color inspired me to create I Hear That Girl!. My platform is unique in my unapologetic outreach for black women. Everything I do, I do it for the sisters. My dedication, heart and energy is to empower and celebrate black women... Point. Blank. Period.
What is next for you in 2018? The year 2018 will be a year of steady travel across the country on my speaking tour and the birth of a new celebratory event for us by us.
What advice would you share with those interested in building a brand as a recognized influencer? My advice to them is to always know your why. If your why is not built on service, then don't even try, it will crumble. You should be the epitome of your brand. If you're inauthentic, people will notice it.
How can readers connect with you online and through social media? Readers can connect with me on all social media platforms @ihearthatgirl. My door is ALWAYS open! So say, hi!
