Women’s month is over but I want to make women’s celebration a year round thing here on the blog. I am so excited to launch my brand new “I AM GREATNESS” weekly feature. I will be showcasing a FEARLESS woman in business each and every WEEK!! The first feature will go live, TOMORROW but thought I’ll feature myself today and answer the standard questions. Check them out and come back tomorrow for the first FEARLESS woman!!
1- Can you tell my readers a little bit about yourself ? -Well, as most of you already know I’m Cindy, best known as PRIIINCESSS, apart from running this blog I am a Blogger’s Coach as well as the face of owner of online clothing, PRIIINCESSS CLOTHING. And on a personal level I was born and raised in Haiti and currently based out of Atlanta, Ga. Yes, I am one of those overly passionate people.
2- What’s a normal day like for you? -A normal day for me consisted of knocking out blog posts, early morning blog photoshoots, lots of time on social media promoting blog posts, working on client sites and FaceTime meetings.
3- What inspired you to start your business/blog? -Well I’ve always been in love with fashion and since I was already taking photos of what I wear to share on my Facebook so finding out I could create a site to share my looks and all of the things I love, I was all IN. I’ve actually been blogging on and off since 2012.
4- What are some of the challenges you face as a woman in business? – I wouldn’t say challenges but more like doubts and non-sayers. I guess some people would look a me and think as a woman I won’t make it far but it don’t bother me because I’m the one putting in the actual work. I can and will reach ALL of my dreams and goals.
5- Running a business is not easy how do you stay motivated? -Running a business is definitely not easy so I stay motivated by always remember my why and focus on the end result. At the end of the day I have a pretty good idea of where I’m heading so I focus on that.
6-What are three things that no one told you about being an entrepreneur?
– How to deal with angry/rude customers/clients…
– No one told me that podcast could literally transform my life AND business…
-I wish someone told me about EMAIL MARKETING when I launched my 1st business.
7- What advice would you give to your much younger self?-– Girl sit down, stop trying to do 100 things at ONCE. Focus on one thing at time. And please, please find your niche and learn as much as you can about your industry. Leaders are learners.
8-What’s Next For you and your business?— I have a lot of amazing things in the works for both the store and this blog. I will be covering a lot of out of town events, expand Blog 101, but my main focus is growing my traffic and secure sponsorships.
9- What are some of your favorite inspirational quotes?
Some of my favorite inspirational quotes are
*“Light yourself on fire with passion and people will come from miles to watch you burn.”
*”All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.”
10-Any words of advice for aspiring entrepreneurs?— Listen, regardless how hard it gets keep going. Focus on the work, when you feel like you can’t go anymore is when you should go even harder. Remember your why.
Finish this sentence; I am greatness because, well God makes no mistake and he definitely made me this way for a reason. Bold & Fearless.
As always, thank you sooooo much for hanging with ME, here’s to bettering ourselves, being great and doing GREAT THINGS!!! #IAMGREATNESS
