Meet April Simmons of ClassandSoulCreations & SoulfullyMeant in Downtown LA

Today we’d like to introduce you to April Simmons.

April, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
At a very early age, I realized that I was gifted an inner wisdom far beyond my years. My lens of life is one of light, rich perspective and massive trust in the Universe. As I grew older, life taught me that our gifts and talents are given to us so that we can serve the world lovingly and willingly out of sheer gratitude for what we have been given. Expression, in all forms, is a tool that I have been given. It has helped to heal me during challenging times and it has healed others. The birth of my son, Jayce, has also been a huge catalyst to where I am today. He has kept my perspective of life full of strength, light, will, persistence and resilience. I truly owe him all the thanks in the world.

I have operated my first platform, SoulfullyMeant, for about five years now. The sole mission of this platform is to inspire others daily. Through written word, poetic expression, inspirational videos and original quotes, my followers have often found healing and comfort in navigating the challenges of life through my posts. I want others to understand that you can experience pain, be treaded down at one point in your life, not believe in a fulfilling ending, and still find happiness. I am simply carrying out a mission and life purpose that was bestowed upon me. I have my own personal journey of miracles and faith restored, so relating to people experiencing challenges and being able to speak life upon them is a rewarding thing. SoulfullyMeant shares inspiration about pertinent life topics and provides practical insights for others to follow. Upcoming projects also involve fulfillment workshops and one on one areas of fulfillment with others. I also write for others. This includes custom letters of expression, formal letters and special requests. My gift of words and ability to connect to others in a special way makes every custom writing order special.

ClassandSoulCreations has been one of the most amazing things that has happened to me. It started when I purchased custom items for my sons second birthday. I was in awe of the keepsake of having a custom item for my son and in such a spontaneous way, I began to teach myself how to make custom items and began posting them on social media platforms. Before I knew it, people were placing orders, sharing my items with awe, other states were asking if I shipped, people were responding to items I made with tears in their eyes, and business was increasing. My business is a perfect example of what resilience and consistency look like. It took TIME. It took PATIENCE. It took “doing things and posting things even if you felt like no one was looking”. It took trusting in the story and unfolding of your life. My business came at a divine time where I was looking to add additional streams of income into my life.

Today, I am still working hard. Some days I visit my platforms and am in surprise of all of the inspirations I have shared with others and products I have made and shipped around the world. Raising a three years old, working full time and being an Entrepreneur, I sometimes wonder ‘How?’ myself. However, I know that nothing I do and have done is solely me. It is the support of the Universe guiding me continuously knowing what I need and knowing what others need from me.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
The waiting process was challenging because you know that your content is good or your products are good but if they aren’t seen or received by the right audience, they are not immediately beneficial to anyone. Trusting that the natural momentum of growth will happen is challenging because it requires consistency at all times no matter what.

Taking a risk was challenging for my business because I had to sacrifice time and finance in order to begin creating things. With my son being the forefront of my responsibility, I would always think to myself “if nothing comes out of this, I am wasting finance that could have been used for him”… but I disciplined my mind to know and believe that what is meant for you will not pass you by.

Today, balance can still present as challenging because I am one woman business pouring into others daily while being a Mother and Giver to myself. It requires a lot of self-grounding and strategizing daily.
