Today I am SUPER excited as I add new clients to my fashion list! I gotta say, that when you are working on your business, brick by brick building it up, it is HELLA WORK! Because I am self taught in all of my skills and work history in fashion and I am not main stream – and somewhat of an introvert, (laughing) – it took me YEARS to start to uncover the resources and information necessary to succeed as a startup, entrepreneur or small business. Out of ALL of the challenges I have faced in this entire experience.. online marketing and networking really have been the most challenging for me.

One of the things I have learned is to NEVER blend in. Always stand out, in a productive and creative  way of course. Apply a similar strategy, like when you are going for a job – you don’t want to blend in, because you will then likely be categorized “like everyone else”. In whatever it is that you want to do or that you’re doing now, DON’T FOLLOW THE CROWD, LEAD THE CROWD. But I must give God the glory, because truly I am building, slowly but surely – HARD WORK DOES PAY OFF, EVEN EVENTUALLY!

I took a moment to work on some new pics for my indie models. Those girls are FANTASTIC! I appreciate them so much. It adds so much value when people believe in you and work with you – even when you’re starting small, ESPECIALLY when you’re starting small.

I have had conversations with many people who work independently and who work for themselves. It’s like music to my ears. There’s NOTHING like working independently and for yourself, doing what you LOVE. It no longer is work. It is a career path or a career choice indeed!

Shout out to ALL of you who said Yes to me, when you could have politely passed me by. Every engagement, every sign up, every constructive interaction, I Thank You for. I continue to upgrade and optimize my content, products and services – EXCLUSIVELY because of You. (Smiling)

In the laws of business nowadays, I have learned that it is extremely important to find your network, that group of supporters and engaging persons. I’m glad that I’m starting to find you all. My plan is to continue to develop new and engaging content for you to enjoy. And of course – as always, contact me with questions, concerns and feedback – anytime. I can be reached simply by joining this blog and “reply to this post” OR you can reach out by major my social media channels. Shout out to ALL of you who support what I do, who respect what I do and who LOVE what I do. You play a major role in my continuous inspiration and dedication and you FUEL my ambition and motivation!!

I appreciate EVERY SINGLE one of you. MUAH!

A Warm Shout Out to all of my friends and support systems nationwide and international. Every kind word, every following, every share, every like, all assistance and every word of positivity is truly a blessing to me.

Enjoy this new set of fashion photography of my girls.. Fashion Prodigies 1 and 2… Stay tuned, more PHOTO FIYAH coming soon to a hood near you, LMAO!
