Growing up, did you imagine being an entrepreneur? 

No, I thought I was going to be a child psychologist and actress.

In the beginning stages of developing your brand/business, what was your biggest struggle and how did you overcome it? 

My biggest struggles were knowing my worth and being confident about the value of my programs and time. Once I sold myself, I began to sell like crazy.

Do you feel like you are pursuing purpose? If so, how did you know this was your purpose?

Absolutely, this is what I was born to do. I knew it was my purpose because I was spiritually connected to my vision. No matter how many times I was tempted to do something else, I knew I would never be as happy and have so much peace if I took the detour.

What’s the best part of Mikel Life Coaching, LLC? What keeps you motivated to keep going? 

It’s where tough conversations begin & where the inner conflict ends. My motivation is having the choice to keep dreaming bigger, and my dreams are BIG.

As an entrepreneur myself, I understand sometimes personal life can get in the way of business. Have you encountered any personal hurdles that could have or did result in a business pivot? 

I have a chronic illness and dealing with a pandemic definitely caused my business to pivot in a great way. It gave me permission to pause, surrender to a new process, and reset. Basically, I gave myself and my business permission to lean into a “Do-Over.”

During these times, we’ve all had to adjust. How has the adjustment been for you and your brand? 

It’s been uncomfortable, but it has caused me to STRETCH. I actually increased my revenue in the pandemic.

What’s the most important piece of advice you could give to a young woman starting her career?

Consider becoming an entrepreneur. Work and save your money to invest in yourself for your 1st year of expenses – no loans if you don’t have to. Pay yourself first the minute you get paid. Take all the free classes you can and find a mentor who connects to your vision.

Lastly, what keeps you struttin? 

My resilience and chanel.
