I now thrive off of challenges. (Tell me what I can’t do, please!)
I now love to see others win. (One team, one dream.)
I now find more value in collaborating than competing. (I call it collabetition).
I now understand that everyone has a story and a unique definition of greatness.
I now truly believe I grew up blessed to be a blessing to others. (#GREATful)
I spend a lot of time connecting with others — I used to have the mindset of doing everything on my own, but once I learned to reach out to others, learn from their lessons, delegate responsibility, build teams, and improve efficiency - my personal brand started to take form.
It was a process, a long, ugly, frustrating process, but I learned to enjoy it.
Now we’re here, 2018, I’ve relocated to Dallas, published my first branding workbook, hosted CreativelyLIT fundraisers across the country with the Too Fly Foundation, hosted our second conference and awarded thousands of dollars in scholarships with The Black Burdell. I’m coaching countless entrepreneurs and creatives on building their brands, and I’m inspiring greatness through The Be Great Brand — it’s actually, very lit.
The truth is that I had to do these things first:
Understand the difference between doing your job and fulfilling your purpose (shout out to Hov).
Know your worth, add tax, and never devalue your brand.
Put yourself in an environment to win, with a winning team.
Find your niche: innovate, integrate, elevate.
