We had the good fortune of connecting with Dominique Myrie and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Dominique, what role has risk played in your life or career?
I’ve always felt if there is no risk there is no reward. When you take a chance there is the potential for loss, but you also greatly increase the odds of reaching your goals. I am a firm believer in speaking things into existence with action. And when I align that mindset with taking risks I always seem to have a positive outcome. Taking risks has allowed me to start doing content and grown from 2,500 to almost 15k followers in 12 months working with household name brands.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
After becoming a mom in April 2018, my body suddenly was not as fit as it used to be. I was VERY hard on myself for not looking like I used to before the baby. It weighed on me mentally. I changed gears, and adopted the “one day at a time” mental attitude, and started working on myself; mentally, spiritually, and physically. I went back to what I knew and implemented meditation, great nutrition, weight lifting, and cardio. I knew then that I needed to share with other women all that I knew on focusing on internal and external health while feeling strong and empowered in their own skin. In a nutshell a long story longer lol, I created Beautifully Individualized. I used my athletic background and competition training to help coach women on how to start on their own fitness journey. In addition, I create an eBook guide & sea moss self-care to help to get women on track & fit the right way by putting their mental state first. Changing our mindset with altering our health habits slowly will help start new habits for healthy living. With consistency and patience, we can accomplish anything we desire one day at a time.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
If my friend was visiting the town we would have fun thought out fun. It doesn’t take much to have fun and create great memories. We would go to Proper Rose Garden for light lunch and tea with a photo opp of course. After heading over to a park where we can talk and share tips, tricks and just brainstorm on business, etc. Lastly, we could go shopping and to dinner to recap our day and walk away with action items for the next time we are in each other presence again.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
First I will say my mommy has influenced me the most growing up and now as an adult into motherhood. I’ve seen her be so strong and do all things without complaining or giving up at trying to make a way for her family. But I can’t leave out other moms I have met that are a part of my mommy circle. There are several incredible women who I have met through this social media and we have grown together. They have shared their stories with me who in turn has made an impact on me as a woman, wife, and mother.
