What makes you a Beyond Mom?
I’m a woman who lives well outside of the mold. Fully standing in my glow power and forging a path and example for my son to follow.
What are the parts of you that have grown and expanded since becoming a Mom?
Every part of you expands when you become a mother. My heart is fuller, my capacity for dreaming is greater, my son has made me a smarter person too. My business which was bubbling within has now grown to match the vision which was taken on it’s own shape. We’ve started a movement and it’s going to heal the world.
Can you share a collaboration/success story with another woman; what helped the collaboration become successful?
I love partnering when it’s the right fit. I had the great opportunity to launch my book wit my client and friend Rebecca Minkoff at her showroom in NYC. It was successful because we both believed in the work- my book, the message and I got incredible sponsors on board including Morgan Stanley and Fit Pregnancy. We both also spoke at Facebook together for the women’s group and that was another treat and well received by Facebook.
What relationships help you stay connected to yourself?
I’m a Taurus so we are grounded by nature. When you know who you are, you can never loose sight or tether to that internal connection. I cherish my friendships with the folks who help me grow. Prayer is a big part of my life.
Do you have a ‘Beyond’ dream that you are pursuing? If so, please share…
I am in a constant state of opening and receptivity for the dreams to anchor and grow within me. I believe that if something is yours, you don’t have to go anywhere or chase behind it, but align all of your daily action with the fulfillment of that dream and those actions, intentions, draw it near.
What wellness activity can you not live without? What is one thing you do daily that balances you?
I love walking in nature. Exploring. I don’t think I could live without yoga….It’s embedded in my veins, and etched upon my heart. It brings me ease in any situation. I’m not seeking balance in my life- but dynamic equilibrium.
How does style influence the way you stay feeling ‘Beyond’? Who is currently your favorite designer?
Style is everything. My mom says “you can have anything you want if you dress for it.” I don’t have one favorite designer- that’s like saying what’s your favorite music? I listen to different things to evoke different moods and feelings- same with clothing- not one brand can encompass my taste alone. I love different ones from Rebecca Minkoff, Tory Burch, Zac Posen, ALC, Love Shack Fancy, Alexander McQueen, I also love a good find at H&M! Thankfully I am friends with many of the designers I love so I can pull wardrobe samples when I wish.
