What do you do and why do you do it? 

This is a very broad question. I do a lot of things. I think we all wear many hats. In terms of what really matters, I do what I do in every area of my life to make a difference, to inspire, to heal and to create lifelong relationships. I use every area of my life as a platform to spread positivity. 

How does what you do benefit others?  

I want to touch every person's life I come in contact with. I intend on making a lasting impression on anyone. I think we all go through challenging times and my story is a story of strength, resilience and growth. If I can relate to my guests, co-workers, friends, family and be an example of the support they need then I think they have benefited knowing they are not alone. 

Describe your career journey and how it led you to where you are now. 

I've been at the top, bottom and everywhere in between. As a VP running a $20 million manufacturing company to being reduced to furniture sales and then everywhere I've been since then is humbling to say the least. I'd like to think that we are innately good people. I also believe that a lot of us lose our way. We either get stuck, go backward or grow and break past those chains holding us back. I am not currently still in sales with CareerBuilder as well as a Podcast host and a skincare beauty line owner. I think my career journey has proven that I am capable of anything.


Where do you see yourself 5 years from now? 

Honestly, I have no idea. I have goals, dreams, and manifesting daily what I want to happen. I'd still like to be a Mom. I would love to be known as a woman that inspires and provides a platform for people to share their story and be supported. I am a woman of God, I go where he wants me to go. I will continue to follow my heart; good, bad,  or indifferent. Only God knows where I am going.
 
If you could have one superpower to help you further your purpose, what would it be and why? How would you use it? 

I have thought about this question a lot. I even asked family & friends what they thought. Ultimately It's what I think. I used to think the physical power would be important, but now I believe the emotional power is the most important. If I could help heal a person's heart so that they can find their organic, true happiness would be the most powerful superpower of all. If you think about people in history that have gone bad, it's because they aren't ok. They are unhappy, they are disturbed, they are hurting. Let me take away your pain. Let me help you heal. YOU are loved. We all deserve to shine our brightest. That's the superpower I want and how I would use it.

Anthony Amos: Artist and Creator

"I fell in love with drawing at 4-years-old. My mom introduced me to drawing as a creative outlet. Around 10, my grandmother enrolled me in art classes at the Art Institute of Chicago. I got into customizing shoes at 13 because my family couldn't afford to buy fresh kicks but twice a year. It was embarrassing, I hated waiting to be fresh. On a random day, I painted a pair of all-white Air Forces and they were a hit the next day at school. Art kept money in my pockets as a teenager." What do you do and why? I’m a visual artist and sneaker customizer. I create because it's a passion. How does what you do benefit others? My work helps people to define and express themselves in color & style. I also help my clients energize their workspace or homes with dynamic artwork.  Describe your career journey and how it led you to where you are now. I made the decision to be a career artist after I was laid off from a good job. During this time

Eliza Cole: Future Supermodel Extraordinaire

"My name is Eliza Cole, I am 20 years old from South Carolina, a true Southern Belle. I am a full-time cosmetologist with dreams and aspirations to be a full-time model. I competed in several local pageants as well as my high school pageant. When I was a Senior in high school, I was a Senior Model Rep for a local photographer. This is when the modeling bug hit me.

Currently, I am a Cosmetologist assistant and makeup artist. My plan is to one day be a full-time model, doing hair and makeup on the side.

Modeling for me is all about the presentation, the presentation of hair, makeup,

  What do you do and why do you do it? My name is Mia Ross. The career I have chosen has been Modeling, I chose modeling because I absolutely love fashion. Creating art with my body is the ultimate self expression for me.  How does what you do benefit others?   Modeling helps others by providing a vision. It provides a fantasy for other to see themselves in a different light. My career is also great for creative expression. There are no creative limits in fashion. Describe your career journey and how it led you to where you are now. My career has been nothing short of a roller coaster. There have been many ups and downs but isn’t that the fun of roller coaster anyway? I have worked to find who I truly am through modeling. I have been denied more times then I would like to count but that’s what has made me the determined person I am now. I have shown myself I don’t take no for an answer. My journey has also shown me I have a drive to help others, this drive has lead me into being a fitn
