Introduce yourself and profession to our readers:
I'm Niya Brown Matthews, mother of one, NFL Wife to Super Bowl Champion Eric Matthews, Best selling Author, Motivational Speaker, Real Estate Professional, Ford's Warrior in Pink Ambassador, and a 2 time Breast Cancer Survivor. Niya has been featured in Black America Web, Ebony, Rolling Out, Black Enterprise, Sophisticates Black Hair Magazine, MommyNoire, Essence Festival, and even the Wendy Williams show just to name a few.
What inspired you to pursue this area of interest?
Owner of an Atlanta Real Estate Consulting Firm, and being a Real Estate professional for 15 years, Niya Brown Matthews provides services for investors around the world with their investment portfolios. Being a Boss it felt only right to write a book encouraging fellow "Bosses" to face their life's obstacles and to find that inner strength to become a better business person, colleague and overall a better person. Niya travels to universities, schools, churches, and organizations globally speaking on her experiences not only in business but her struggle with fighting and beating breast cancer twice. Alongside her husband she's the President of the nonprofit Eric Matthews Foundation. The foundation services the community by providing free sport camps for kids, food, clothes and more to families.
What advice would you share with those interested in a similar pursuit?
Advice I would give to others would be to stay focused on your dreams no matter what. Trust the process, it may be hard to stay on track at times, but with hard work and determination it will all work for you good.
Discuss a professional challenge and how you overcame it:
A professional challenge that I faced was becoming a writer. I never saw myself as a writer, I knew I had something to say, however I never knew how to put it into a composition that would generate in a book. However, if you want to accomplish something you must first research it, master it , and just DO IT. With writing my first book The Boss in You, Niya has been on a national book tour to universities, and Barnes and Noble nationwide.
What is next for your brand/business in 2016?
Up next, Niya is writing her 2nd book which will release this winter, and she will continue to travel with Ford as an Ambassador as Ford Warrior in Pink. She's also looking forward to growing her Too Fabulous for Cancer Organization nationwide.
