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.

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. I loved being in front of a camera where my fashion skills came out.  My goal is to be a catalog model, but if this does not work out, I would love to continue modeling as well as photoshoots."   What do you do and why do you do it? 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. I started modeling locally through a photographer friend who suggested I try out for the local fashion shows. This led me to several local runway modeling opportunities. Modeling for me is all about the presentation, the presentation of hair, makeup,

Titans of Tomorrow: Medical Professionals Creating Change

  In today's world, we've all witnessed the immeasurable importance of medical professionals in society. After a daunting year of near apocalyptic horror, with all of Earth falling prey to the treacherous pandemic, Covid-19, it's undeniable that we would not have made it through without the medical professionals in the world. We're not just talking about the doctors leading the charge in pathology, immunology and laboratory research. We're also talking about the well trained nursing staff who had to execute treatment plans for ill patients in hospitals and nursing homes. We're talking about the mental health counselors and therapists who coached people through a year of so much loss, restriction and isolation. We're talking about the administrative staff at hospitals, clinics and testing centers who kept everything afloat on the back end from patient services, insurance billing and scheduling appointments. We're talking about the janitorial staff that ke

Titans Of Tomorrow: #BlackBusinessesMatter The First Wave

  Image Credit It's no secret that people of color have been some of the greatest contributors to society in all facets of life. From the Dr. Kings and Malcom X's in the civil rights era to the Naomi Campbells and Tyra Bankses of the fashion industry to the Oprah Winfreys and Wendy Williamses of media and marketing, they have been hands down crucial to the world in every sense of the word. Yet, why are we in 2020 and still they have no peace? They've journeyed through the valleys and shadows of death to arrive at their accomplishments and successes, moving mountains and walking on waters of faith and dreams, but still have to say things like #BlackLivesMatter. Well, we recognize that people of color are not only iconic but essential. Warriors of their time, valiantly battling racism, discrimination, oppression, poverty, the black and brown prison pipeline, police brutality and more, they stand tall as true Titans of Tomorrow. This article sheds a little light on some black
