Tell everyone a little bit about you and your business
A little about me...I hate telling people about myself, lol. I never know exactly what to say. I am blessed beyond measure with amazing talents but I never want to sound like I'm bragging. I hold several different positions for volunteer work. I am the President of the Virginia Chapter of Sistas Inspiring Sistas, I am the Chairperson of the Alberta Special Events Committee for the Town of Alberta, Virginia and I am the Team Captain of The Royal Steppers a Relay for Life team for the American Cancer Society.
Professionally I am the CEO and Head Event Planner of Royalti Inc., a party and event planning company. I am also the Founder and President of She's Royal Radio, a platform designed to spotlight the issues that affect the black community. I also work as a Group Home Counselor for adults with intellectual disabilities. I am a self-proclaimed "World's Greatest Auntie" to 2 beautiful nieces and 4 handsome nephews! I am middle child of two amazing parents. I'm the sister of two and a friend to many. I love life, chocolate and chasing success!! For this interview I would like to tell everyone about She's Royal Radio.
She's Royal Radio is an online radio show that was created to spotlight issues that affect the black community. I feel that we (as African Kings & Queens) have strayed from our throne and in order to get back on track we need to dissect the issues that's keeping us off track.
How long have you been doing your business?
She's Royal Radio launched on Tuesday, March 4 2014 but this has been a dream of mine for years. Approximately 2 years ago I was a guest on a radio show and shared with the host how I wanted to create my own show. At that moment I didn't know what direction I wanted to take the show but over the years it slowly came together. When the vision was given to me I ran with it! She's Royal Radio will air every other Tuesday night at 9:30 PM on www.blogtalkradio.com/shesroyalradio.
What inspired you to start your business?
Life inspired me to start She's Royal Radio. As I stated earlier I am an auntie to 6 ranging in ages of 2-16. The younger generation has so much to deal with and good role models are scarce. We (the black community) need to step up to the plate and redirect our princes & princesses back to the throne. My generation needs to become aware of the issues that affect us as well.
What are some of your favorite things so that potential clients/listeners/supporters can get to know more about you?
Some of my favorite things...chocolate, infomercials and love! lol. I can be bribed with anything chocolate but the best thing to bribe me with is chocolate cake or brownies, lol. Yes I love infomercials. Not exactly sure why, but I love watching them. Cooking & exercise infomercials are my favorites to watch. And love...I believe the world needs more love. Selfishness is high in today's society, so I enjoy spreading love. :)
What are your plans as far as your business in the future?
My future plans for She's Royal Radio is to take this movement from the airwaves to the "streets". A wide variety of topics will be discussed on She's Royal Radio and I plan to do more than just discuss. For example, we will discuss finances in the black community. I want to offer classes and workshops to help us learn to manage our finances and how "keeping up with the Jones" should not be a priority. I want to do many workshops, classes and events to better ourselves. I also want to start a mentoring program and do more with the youth worldwide.
What do you hope to accomplish with your business?
I hope to accomplish the plan that God has laid out before me. I hope to change people’s lives. I hope to make a difference in this world regardless of how big or small. I hope to give someone "the sign" that they have been waiting for to follow the plan that God has for them.
Is there anything in particular that you specialize in for your business to target a certain clientele?
There is nothing particular that I specialize in for She's Royal Radio. My target audience is the black community but I want everyone to listen and participate in events that I host. I'm only targeting the black community because that's what I know. I can only speak on what I know. However if I can help any other cultures, I'm willing! :)
Is there anything else you would like to share for potential clients about your motivation and inspiration in your everyday life?
I would like to encourage everyone to follow what’s in your heart. It's in your heart for a reason...do not ignore it! The road leading to your destination will NOT be easy but you CAN do it!! Stay the course. If there is anything I can do to help you, motivate you or encourage you do not hesitate to contact me and I'm serious about that!
