Networking is an essential part of building your business, brand, and wealth no matter what industry you are in, a major part of our success is dependent on the networking that we do.
I have been modeling for 13 years. At this point of my life I would not consider modeling my career, however I have a passion for the art modeling and it will always be a part of everything that I do. Modeling has introduced me to individuals that have opened doors to other opportunities I may not have been exposed to otherwise. Modeling has conditioned me to be great in all aspects of my life. I'm a full time real estate agent, and a tutor and mentor with Goodshepherd Services alternative high school programs catering to high school juniors and seniors, not to mention I have not shied away from my bartender and promotional skills, I have worked in all industries for over 5 years. No matter what you do in life, you have to enjoy what you do, the money and success will follow, there is always a way to bring all your passions and interest together it took me some time but I have done that.
Apart from modeling I have also been exposed to other areas in this industry that include, back stage staffing at fashion shows, styling, hosting, and retail distribution. To have the ability to express my talents in a variety of ways is blessing, I love the creative aspect and the endless possibilities there are to explore.
Much of my experience as a model lies in runway, promotional modeling and print. I would like to explore more opportunities focusing print, FIT, and spokes modeling, however not limiting myself to these genres of the industry.
The best advice i give myself
"Its not to late to accomplish every dream or goal that I want to accomplish, I have not missed my window of opportunity"
The best opportunities come when we least expect it, however we must never give up on our dreams.
