It’s #nationalbossday and I absolutely have to express how grateful I am for the bosses that guided and taught me: Regina, Jen, Talina, Sequoia, Philithea, Corey, Will, and Flor. I started working at Subway at the age of 15 and seven part time jobs, one business degree, two multi-level marketing “sign three people up under you to waive your monthly membership fee and become a leader that earns (at least) an extra $500 a month,” opportunities, and one full time director of marketing position later... I’m a full time influencer, getting paid to post content on YouTube and Instagram, and work with brands I love and personally use!
Now that I work for myself I’m my own makeup artist, at home hairstylist (in between my appointments with @touchedbytj_ ), personal shopper, stylist, camera woman, photographer (even though my photographer @mo_storyteller thinks the pictures I take myself are blurry lol), writer, executive producer, editor, stunt double, personal assistant, and travel agent! I am blessed to live for a living and take care of myself 100% by myself doing what started out as just a hobby.
If you are living life on your terms, whether that’s living in the space of your dreams, driving your dream car, married to the love of your life, raising a family, traveling, getting your degree, going to work everyday to provide for yourself, going to therapy to heal, or taking small steps everyday to put yourself in a better position — you’re a boss. Don’t compare yourself or where you are to anyone else, okay?
