I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
This is an extremely competitive industry and as a woman, I had to gain a certain respect and reputation in order to be taken seriously and obtain an income that would never let me go back to my 9-5. I had to truly be sure of who I was and my direct intentions when dealing with seasoned professionals in the music industry. At the same time, it was a great learning experience and led me to the success I have today. Also, something that I teach to students when speaking about entrepreneurship is financial literacy. This subject I feel is underrated when speaking to our peers about being an entrepreneur or having a creative income. Building a viable income while living out your passion is quite impossible in the beginning stages especially when you are taking classes and interning. Just like most creative entrepreneurs, I had to wear many hats before becoming a Master. I had to learn to create an income by finding a niche in my industry that supported my cause. TikTok, Instagram and YouTube influencers have truly locked in that concept, I had to learn the hard way.

What matters most to you?
Family and God, hands down. Being able to provide for my family and set up generations of wealth and prosperity is most important. I came from not an easy upcoming, my purpose is to change the script of my family’s story. I was given a gift from God that is undeniably the tools that were given to me to be the best version of Tiffany. Not only for myself but for my generation. My vision for success is being able to help not only thousands but millions of people by providing the necessities and the everyday tools to grow. I didn’t go to school for this, everything I have learned was the opportunity presented to me by God and what I take for it is how I distribute my success.
