We had the good fortune of connecting with iiiYansa T. Muse and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi iiiYansa T., do you have some perspective or insight you can share with us on the question of when someone should give up versus when they should keep going?
It all boils down to how well you wish to succeed. This is a reason I encourage people going into business for themselves to choose a skill that would make them happy over a skill that will make the most money. You will naturally put more effort in to something you love, and it is Universal Law that you will manifest what you place the most of your energy into. All beginning journeys have setbacks and struggles, and that is certainly not the time to give up. THAT it the time to go in deeper, to try new ideas, and to learn from your setbacks. I cannot say when is a time to give up, because I don’t believe in giving up. It isn’t an option for me. However, if you feel burned out, frustrated, or on the verge of giving up, (these moments do happen to the best of us) slow down. Take some time to reflect, or consider changing lanes. Never, ever, give up.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
My visual, literary, and performing arts are but an extension of my divinatory services. What sets me apart? Well, I haven’t the time to list the many ways. I will say this: No two people receive the same type of reading and service from me, and I craft things to fit people’s unique mystic design. Honestly, I got to the place I am in today through faith and following my spirit, even when things didn’t make sense. It was not easy at all, but it has been an amazing journey. I overcame many challenges through patience, learning from failures, and allowing myself to enjoy the journey. Being active in your purpose contains many destinations of success. I want the world to know that I endured much to develop a body of work with integrity wisdom and creativity…and I am only beginning!

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?
Gangam Spa, Yoga House House Last Concert Cafe, Miller Outdoor Theater, Lucy’s Ethiopian Food!

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would like to dedicate this Shout-out to the memory of my Father, Samuel Sr., and the host of my ancestors for guiding my path before I was aware.
