1. What exactly are you into? What is your business all about?
I am really into being myself at the moment and allowing all of me to fully express on the daily.
I have two businesses. One is named Goddess Detox, which is a self-love inspired company that provides products to physically, spiritually and emotionally detox.
The other is named #SelfishBabe – a lifestyle and personal development brand where women learn how to selfishly and authentically love themselves.
2. Please, can our readers get to know you?
Yes, here is some information on me: I consider myself a self-love manifestor helping woman globally learn to love themselves selfishly and authentically including myself.
I am 26 years old. I am a passionate, chill and spiritual woman. I enjoy deep conversations on spirituality, manifesting and making dreams happen.
I love watching anime as one of my MUST self-care to do’s. I also enjoy taking spiritual herbal baths, listening to the Nujubes and Alina Baraz Pandora Stations. I am Jamaican. I love to travel internationally as this reminds me of the abundance in the world.I am very determined.
I enjoy strong and connected female sisterhood. I love alternative rock bands like Paramore and Pvris. I love foreign films because it doesn’t always end as a happy ending. Writing in my journal and podcasting are ways I enjoy expressing myself. I know my ancestors, God, Universe and spirit guides support me. The love I have for them is infinite.
3. What inspired you to get started?
Why Did I Get Started?
I originally got started in business to raise money for a study abroad trip to Tanzania. After I came back, I continued the business and I found a feminine herbal product that worked during the time I was deep into a book named Sacred Woman by Queen Afua. I was learning about crystal healing, womb work, affirmations and decided to focus on women.
I was in my second year of grad school and started to sell the Goddess Vaginal Detox Pearls. I learned about social media promotion and from there I got more people to know about my product and gained a following. But I wasn’t just advertising a product, I also promoted affirmations daily because affirmations are what helped me through some rough times.

SOUND ON ??The Shit You Say About Yourself Matters @selfishbabes #SelfishTalk Podcast #17. If you havent listened to it yet check it out on my free self love app called selfishbabe and Apple Podcasts. I was really feeling that first affirmation: My Magic Is Sooo Damn Good ?? ahh yess.
After selling products on Goddess Detox I saw that having a self-love product wasn’t enough for women to really embody what it means to love themselves. I thought about having one easy access way to learn how to love yourself and hence the app was born. Originally it was supposed to be a learning hub.
Now women really enjoy the notifications they get to their phone daily and that makes me happy. These notifications now impact their day for the better as well as boost their self-esteem.
4. What is your educational background?
I went to Florida State University and received my Bachelor’s in Psychology and African American Studies and then attended Florida Agricultural & Mechanical University and received my Master’s in Community Psychology.
5. What are your motivations?
My motivations are my future family for generational wealth, my freedom and my ancestors.
6. What advice do you have for other people who want to do this same thing?
My advice is, “make sure you have a reason why you are doing it, a bigger purpose and then to just do it.”

Stop sleeping on yourself. Ive been getting messages on what advice I would give people wanting to start their own brand or business. Honestly the BEST advice I can give to you to to just fucking start. Literally start with something. Do an action that shows you want to grow your business or brand. To those that are HELLA QUICK TO COME UP WITH AN EXCUSE LIKE : WELL I DONT HAVE ANY MONEY ??? GURL GOOGLE.COM is free. You looking at instagram right now so im sure you have access to the internet. If not get a library card until you can get a laptop. Also work a 9-5 or whatever kind of job you need so that you can invest part of what youre paid into youre business. So just stop stalling and waiting for people to give you advice. Just do it Research is free. I say this with love. I just know a lot of people will continue to not do anything but wait. And thats sad. If you really want it you gotta put some action behind your words.
7. Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years?
Hmm, I’ll be 31. I see myself as a widely recognized speaker and author who runs 3 companies lol but who is very happy in all aspects of her life.
8. Any present or future projects?
Right now just building both #SelfishBabe and Goddess Detox up to the T.
9. What is the biggest challenge you’ve experienced in your business as a person of color?
Honestly, I wouldn’t even call this a challenge but I would have liked to see more women of color showing that they make millions in sales in their business. I am seeing this now and it keeps me motivated and happy. Like yea, I can do it too.

13. As a person of color, what advice will you give someone starting their own business or career?
My advice would be to know what you want to sell, have a bigger meaning/purpose for it other than the service or product and then start doing it. It doesn’t have to be perfect to get out there. I would also say to use Instagram marketing through social influencers to your advantage.
