Inside the Hustle: Unknown Opportunities


I am out here hustlin’, literally. So things have really been evolving for me since I got back to NC. Not only did I start my meal prepping business (which I’ll talk about another time), but I had the opportunity to shoot a campaign for the Just In Case On the Go Bag!

I had so much fun and of course the perks of modeling and representing a company are the best. All this came about because I stay authentic to who I am and my energy attracts the necessary people in my life. Not to mention, my great sense of style; wink wink.

The take away from this is, to be who you are and treat people with kindness. Be authentic and never switch it up to blend in. Stand out and the opportunities will come.

Stay HUSTLIN’,

This Week’s Goal: Build a Portfolio

I had a portfolio a while ago. It was horrible. At least, it was horrible to me. It was – I don’t know – too simple. Too lacking. Too something of what I didn’t want. But I feel I need a portfolio. I feel like I can offer more than I am and I have so much to give and do and that I’m not harnessing my best self in the world out there.

Now, Elle and I have been talking a bit as to what I would call myself title-wise. I wouldn’t limit myself to my job and I do so many odd jobs as it is, it’s hard to neatly fit it in a box and present it to strangers.

Ideally, I want my portfolio to be a digital landscape of my work and potential. And I want it to garner me freelance projects. But finding my scope is a little more challenging than I realize. So, I thought I would display myself on a webpage and see what comes to me in the building process. I’ve already purchased the domain name and email account, so I can at least present a sense of professionalism, when contacted.

Listen, I’m not working this hard for puppies and rainbows. I’m on a mission. And it needs to show.
