Introduce yourself and profession to our readers:
Blessings!! My name is Lizann M. Destin and I am a Brand Manager, and a full time entrepreneur. I own a health and wellness company called Fitness As A Lifestyle, LLC. I manage my client’s brands, making sure the brand is where it needs to be for what they want out of their businesses/brand. I make sure its organized and I create opportunities for my clients, all while making sure they are positioned properly in every way. From marketing to organization.
What inspired you to pursue this area of interest?
I am a Navy vet, ex federal employee, Clark Atlanta graduate in Mass Comm, I got my then dream opportunity, working for a news station right after college. I mention all of that to say that I wasn't fulfilled and my ultimate dream was being an entrepreneur. Communications and business have always been passions of mine. I wanted to be happy and truly take a chance in life. Leaving corporate America was by far one of the biggest risk I've taken! This area of interest chose me, and I've been making sure to do right by the path God put me on. I live for it!
What advice would you share with those interested in a similar pursuit?
Take any fear you have and throw it away! Take risk and just make sure that you love what you’re doing. Don't worry about obstacles they will be there always and research, research!!
Discuss a professional challenge and how you overcame it:
The financial part of my journey has always been a challenge. Coming from knowing where my income was coming from and that it was coming every two weeks! To never knowing when that next big pay day is coming. Lol but you know one thing, God always provides! Prayer has helped me in so many ways, and when you truly believe in what you do, people will take notice of your hard work and the money will be there. I pray, I meditate, I grind, I believe and I do it all over again!
What is next for your brand/business in 2016?
Revealing the brains behind the operation! I will showcase more of what I do for my clients, building a website primarily on my brand management services. I am also adding a new element to my business providing personal assistant services as well. All while continuing to help my clients reach new heights.
