Today we’d like to introduce you to Fantajia DeLisa.
Hi Fantajia, can you start by introducing yourself? We’d love to learn more about how you got to where you are today?
A powerhouse speaker, mentor, entrepreneur and Author, Fantajia DeLisa Thomas is here to help every woman she meets to feel lifted and loved through my Handmade Jewelry designs, Pep Talks and Creative Connections. I’ve been known for my magnetic presence, my dancing style and my NO BS Personality. Full of love, light and a whole lot of God, grit, and grace. I believe my life assignment is to rise with women and use my testimony to enlighten women and show them how to tap into that same power to reclaim who they were designed to be. This is a combination of my jewelry designs, dance classes, and my book. To give a back story! I live a spiritual base life in everything that I do. With that, iRocCharms Designs was birthed. Learning to meditate and control my thoughts was strengthened by creating jewelry pieces. What I used to do was take one bracelet and rub my fingers over one bead at a time, speaking my affirmations. Whatever I was working on at the time, I would speak over each bead. For an example, if I was working on forgiveness, I said the word forgive over and over and over to create a feeling of forgiving! It was so powerful for me. I just so happened to have had a pretty good eye for jewelry designs as well.
I officially started iRocCharms as a business November 2019, thought I had been making jewelry for over eight years! I just knew 2020 was going to be the year that business up and in full operation and I also had the goal to start my book process. I also became the Co-Founder to GGS, assisting to open the doors to Goddess Gift Studio. I joined forces with Lavon Watson and Sannae Hopson to create a space for women that specialized in handmade products. Goddess Gift Studio, located in on the Historic Street of Market in Inglewood. Two weeks after signing our paperwork and receiving our keys, March 2020, the world shut down. With a lot of new time on my hands and Home schooling my 1st Grader, I was pushed to organize my personal business, Create my Showroom at Goddess Gift Studio and Write my book, Pep Talk- A No BS Conversation about Boundaries, Blessings and Becoming. Now available on Amazon and Barnes and Nobles book stores. Today – iRocCharms have been purchased from people all over the United States, Goddess Gift Studio is expanding and increasing our reach and my book is available worldwide and now receiving offers to join young women organizations to speak about the importance of healing and forgiveness, along with offering iRocCharms workshops and business consulting.
Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Has it been a smooth road? Absolutely NOT! but that does not take away from all of the beauty of being present in everything thing I have accomplished. It is important to use that world; Accomplished. The reason is because obstacles and challenges bring out character. If you have stamina, willpower and God, nothing is too hard. I believe that. I will add, My accomplishments looked smooth to the naked eye because I remained in flow mode. Flow mode is the mind state of I let go of what I can not control. In flow mode, if things were too tough to figure out, I would not force it, move on to something I can control and then go back when the right time allowed.
Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
In my professional career, I hold the title of Customer Experience Director for the world’s largest car rental. I specialize in Management Development, Operations Projections and Customer Relations.
