I’m a bit sassy. My momma could tell you this first hand. She often tells the story of my 5-year-old self putting my hands on my hips, shaking my head to declare, “You’re not the boss of me!” Of course she is though, as my momma is my most cherished confidant. Along with my Nana, who’s cooking could put any top chef out of business.
I grew up in the country surrounded by corn fields, and attended school in a small town of only 500. My graduation class was just a mere 26 students. I was that girl in school that liked to challenge the status quo of what was “acceptable” to wear. I didn’t mind the odd looks. I enjoy the spotlight, as I jump at any chance to speak in front of crowds, sharing my entrepreneurial journey and the A T avenue story.
I do my best work late at night or extremely early in the morning. Small, hole-in-the-wall coffee shops are my weakness. Coffee is my Achilles heal. I adore wearing hats, too many bracelets on my wrists, and my dress collection is almost pitiful. I need a self-help book on how to stop buying dresses. And shoes. I could eat soup for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
My introduction to the world of entrepreneurship started with a class named CEO (Creating Entrepreneurial Opportunities). An unconventional class that taught young high school students the ins and outs of not only owning your own business, but also how to think like an entrepreneur, how to see opportunity every where you turn.
I believe that every single person can live their dream. It will take work (a lot of Starbucks), ambition, building relationships, getting out of your own way, and making life happen. The purpose of this blog is to encourage you to chase after what you want. Inspire. Motivate. Grow.
