If you could define 2018 in one hashtag, meme, or emoji it would be…..: Alignment

If you had to describe 2018 by using one celebrity it would be…..: Cardi B

Sexiest Person of 2018: N/A

What motivated you the most in 2018: On a business side, I was able to expand from what I know and take my business relationships to the next level – whether that was as an agent or traveling for my one-on-one sessions. On a personal side, paying off my credit card debt (Laughs).

What is the most valuable lesson you learned in 2018: You cannot force or rush anything. Let things be because no matter what you do or don’t do, what’s meant for you will always be there.

What would you consider to be your biggest achievement of 2018: Booking Lil Wayne as the headliner for Float Fest in San Marcos, TX (August 2018) and 2 Chainz and Ludacris for the 2018 NBA Finals.

What did you actually get better at in 2018: I broke a lot of bad patterns and got on a routine. There’s still a lot more to go, but the progress from 2018 alone makes me want to get better in all areas of my life ASAP.

What is something that you wish you did in 2018: I wish I listened to my gut and took more risks and leaps of faith. Faith is a hard thing – You know what you’re supposed to do and you know you’ll be okay, but sometimes taking that risk is hard. There were a few decisions I ended up making later in the year, but wish I made them when it became a thought in the beginning of the year. It would’ve saved me a lot of time and energy.

How did you #Trump something in 2018: I put myself first for once. I spent a lot of my life putting others first, which isn’t a bad thing, but it is when you’re putting yourself last.

Favorite guilty pleasure of 2018: Shopping

What annoyed you the most in 2018: People (Laughs). 

Funniest thing you saw in 2018: I spent a part of my day looking at memes (Laughs), I couldn’t pick the funniest one. 

Best concert or sporting event you attended in 2018: Lil Wayne float festival and NBA Finals 2018 – Both completely biased as I made those things happen, but that’s why it was the best. Both were huge milestones in my career.

Most Shocking Moment of 2018: In early November I was thinking about how I want to get back on-camera and need to update my website, reel and media deck, clean up socials, etc., and start reaching out to different networks outside of my niche, hip-hop. I never got around to it, and at the end of November a network reached out to me because they came across my website. I did the screen test and we are shooting in January! 

If you could leave one thing behind in 2018, it would be…..: My credit card debt! I’m almost done!

If you could leave one person behind in 2018, it would have to be…..: Already did that (Laughs). No need for names.

Favorite purchase you made in 2018: My Mom’s first Louis Vuitton bag. My mom is the most selfless person I know and she legit never asks for anything. She’s always wanted an LV bag, so I surprised her with the one she wanted on Thanksgiving. Her exact reaction, “why did you get me this? I’m not ready for this yet.” It was amazing.

Favorite meal you had in 2018: I love food, couldn’t pick just one meal (Laughs). 

Best book you read in 2018: The Wait by Devon Franklin & Meagan Good

Favorite movie or series to “Netflix and Chill” to in 2018: I’m weird and re-watch series. One of my favorite movies this year though was “A Simple Favor.”

Favorite TV Show of 2018: I binged watched Law & Order: SVU, always love How To Get Away With Murder but the new show that’s been my favorite as of the last month is Mom.

Favorite Album of 2018: Too many to pick from. 

Favorite Music Video of 2018: Don’t have one. 

Favorite Clothing Brand of 2018: Zara

Favorite Website of 2018: Pinterest – I know that’s not a website but I went on there a lot this year for new recipes. 

Favorite Technology of 2018: My phone. 

Favorite Social Media of 2018: Instagram

What are you most looking forward to in 2019: I am at the most peace and happiness I have ever been. I am aligned. 2019 is going to have all the opportunities that were meant for me because I worked to put myself in the position to receive those blessings. 

Why should we lookout for you in 2019: Not only am I at my most peace and happiness I have ever been, but also the most driven and focused. I spent a lot of the third quarter organizing and starting the conversations for projects in 2019. I’m taking interviews and inspirational videos to a whole different level. I’m expanding my brand. 2019 is going to be my setup year, but 2020 is going to be the year for sure. 

Make one prediction for 2019: It’s going to be a great year for everyone. 

Why will 2019 be the best year of your life: I’ve set boundaries. I’ve set goals. I’ve set standards. Nothing or no one is getting in my way. 

Any Words of Wisdom heading into 2019: Align yourself to receive the blessings God has for you. They’re there, you just need to put yourself in a position to receive them.
