OWN IT TOUR w/ Nichole Bess (Empowerment Coach)

Naté- I am sitting here with Ms.-Hard-Work herself, Nichole Bess. How are you?
              Nichole Bess– I’m good.
Naté- Exhausted I’m sure. This is city number…?
              Nichole Bess– This is my first.
Naté- This is your first stop?
              Nichole Bess- This is my first stop.
Naté- Ok, so congratulations on an successful event. I heard a little on what inspired you, but can you tell our readers your initial inspiration?
              Nichole Bess– My initial inspiration of OWNit is my great grandmother, my grandmother, and my mother are all passed away and they all passed away with a secret, an untold truth. So one day as I sat back and thought about it and I was like “they could have never lived. What type of life is that? To have died and then something come out about what you never told.” So my mission is to make sure that women don’t die an un-lived life.
Naté- That is beautiful. I feel like women especially hold a lot in so sometimes how we’re feeling gets pushed to the back burner. So I applaud you. It’s so inspiring to see a woman finding her purpose. With organizing the tour, how did you go about picking each city? Was it a focus on region?
            Nichole Bess– I actually googled which cities had the highest number of female entrepreneurs and made the schedule based on that.
Naté- Smart business move! You have a large following. What would you tell to someone who sees you as inspiration?
           Nichole Bess– The one thing I would say is just DO IT. Just go for it. No matter what it looks like when you get there, just get there and walk in that. No one knows your purpose besides you, right? And it’s your obligation to God to get that done because He put you here for that reason.
Naté- Thank you so much for sitting with me and sharing. You are an inspiration to so many women. Continue being a business bombshell, a great mother, friend, and girl boss and congratulations on your engagement
           Nichole Bess– Thank you!

Insta Work Networking Event

Social Network, it’s not just about how many followers, likes and comments you can get. Two main reasons for these platforms are to be social and networking. At the #instaworknetworking event brought to us by Adrena- CEO of Creationz from a Dove, we did just that.
From artistry and event planning to food and Liq’Her, Paragon 7 housed all things entrepreneurial. Imagine the benefit of just being in that environment, the motivation you obtain from hearing those who struggled and still found the strength to make a dream come true.
This was an event to receive marketing advice and information on using social media to benefit your company and your brand. This event gave businesses, whether up and coming or established, a platform to essentially say I am here, please support me while also taking note that support is much more than a “like” or “share”. But the evening wasn’t all business, there were musicians, poets and storytellers to please our ears and stimulate our creativity.
For those who have a dream business or even an idea, Insta Work is the event for you. Don’t miss out next time-I am the ‘I told you so’ type.
