We had the good fortune of connecting with Alana Higginbotham and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Alana, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
I’ve been an entrepreneur in some way since I was a teen. Working for myself and creating my own business always made since to me. For this platform my initial thought process was “How can I make money from home, even when I’m asleep and enjoy it?”. That the moment I realized that packaging up the advice I’d be helping so many others with needed to be an ebook. From there the eBook quickly turned into a hard copy and that what I built my entire platform on.What should our readers know about your business?
The thing that sets me apart from others the most is me and my string willingness to be me. The real me. I have created my own space by being open and transparent about my own life and how I am a student of my work. That’s what makes me the best teacher of this platform. That is what I’m most proud of. I’m excited about how so many people can personally identify with my words and my wisdom. I can say something that seems like old hat for me and it will resonate so profoundly with others. It’s exciting to hear about how people have taken my words, applied them and are living free because of it. Arriving where I am today in my business has been simple in theory and treacherous all at once. My business is about self discovery and self creation as it pertains to what your life looks like. That means I have to do all the same things I encourage others to do. Then do it again and again and truly be a great student of this work. Working on myself and the willingness to be imperfect and transparent about it all is how my business is so successful. It was a beautiful, challenging, rewarding, nerve racking, peaceful journey to this place. I’ve overcome challenges by a revelation I came to years ago. That revelation, I was made to stand out and I WILL arrive where my desires want to take me. It may not look like it at times but I definitely will arrive. Through this journey I’ve learned that I am in total control of how my life ends up. I may not control the actions of other but I certainly control how I respond and how I exist with and around them. My life is where it is because of my not allowing others actions to command my next move. I want the world to know that no matter where they are or what they currently have they can create a life they enjoy right now with what they already have. That is story and my brand.Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My parents and grandparents. John and Paulette René and Vincent and Orelia René, respectfully.
