What motivated and inspired you to start your own business?
Well I knew I wanted MORE for my life and I wanted to be in a state of free creation. I wanted to be an artist and be a woman who could change the world – and I knew that I would be one step closer to creating that IF I had my own business. So I started my own LLC in 2012 and haven’t looked back!
