What inspired you to become a CEO?
Before you can ever spark change, you have to believe in the work you do an the difference you can make.
We have chosen our line of work because we believe in the power of Love. We believe that being good at what we do, and doing good while we do it, is both a gift and honor. We can’t think of anything more gratifying than celebrating Love.
If you could share business advice with yourself 10 years ago, what would you say?
Do not wait on anyone to solidify your place in the world.. Believe in your own ability and root for yourself. Do not allow fear to take over..
One of my favorite quotes: What if I fail? Oh darling, what if you fly!
With this being the month of love, how do you feel self-love affects our entrepreneur journey?
Self~love is taught..
We often forget about ourselves. With our day to day, being pulled in multiple directions can take a toll on your mental strength.
You must be intentional and carve out time for yourself.
Put yourself on the calendar as you do everything else.
You need to recharge your mind, body & soul so that you can be the best at what you do!
I absolutely love when I get a mani & pedi. As simple as that maybe, I enjoy tuning the world out and jammin to my music.
What is next for you in 2020?
Elegant Affairs by Dione will be hosting All Things Wedding Experience 2020 on 3/22/20
Tickets on sale on eventbrite. As you know, most brides who attend The large Bridal Expos, are unable to afford the vendors. Their purpose is to get inspiration and hopefully win something for free. I decided to close the gap and bring affordable wedding vendors and brides who can afford them in one place. This is not your typical expo, this will be an experience.
⭐️Giveaways every 15 min
⭐️Swag bag giveaway
I will be launching my online Bridal Boutique the same day!
All thing Wedding Experience was birth out of the need to help local small business owners in the wedding industry showcase their talents and book more Brides. At Elegant Affairs by Dione, we believe so much in giving back to the community, a portion of the proceeds will go to Embracing Arms, A Therapeutic group home for girls in Jonesboro, GA. Embracing Arms programs are designed to encourage positive change and growth through a series of educational, recreational, treatment and support services in a warm, loving, and therapeutic environment.
