“The Power Of Persistence”

“My recent shoot with actress Ajiona Alexus reminded me of the power of persistence”

Actress Ajiona Alexus (Empire, 13 Reasons Why)

As an entrepreneur and artist, I am no stranger to the dreaded “creative slump”. Many times, during these phases, I have doubted my commitment to myself and to my craft. Recently while shooting with actress Ajiona Alexus I was reminded that persistence is the key to accomplishing anything worth wild. Throughout my time as a stylist and media host, I have realized that continuous growth is essential to building longevity in any profession. That said, the way that we continue to grow is to be persistent in our attempts to chase our dreams.

Of course, there will be moments where we feel like giving up or taking a break from our passions! That’s ok! Sometimes we need to take a step back to refresh our perspective, restrategize our plans, and even reinvent ourselves before we can move forward. The bigger point, however, is that we continue to give our dreams our maximum efforts in order to prepare us for the major moments that are sure to come. I guess the old saying is true…if at first you don’t succeed try try again!


Hang in there, friends!
