We had the good fortune of connecting with LaKisha Mosley and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi LaKisha, have there been any changes in how you think about work-life balance?
Balance does not exist. For something to be balanced, that means everything has to be equal on all sides. With life and work, there is no way to “balance” that. I used wear myself out trying to balance everything. I never achieved it. I finally decided that I would create my own semblance of balance. As a mother, serial entrepreneur, and social change activist, I have to decide what will be a priority at that given time and that is what I would focus on. I refuse to inflict undue stress on myself trying to achieve something that really doesn’t exist.
What should our readers know about your business?
The LM Experience has evolved into the virtual powerhouse it is due to hard work and being willing to pivot when necessary. I started this company, under a different name, over 7 years ago and never thought it would have been this successful. I truly started it to just see if I could make a career out of it. I was able to take something as simple as creating an event into an experience in person and virtually. I want my client’s guests to walk away from their event having been immersed into a wonderful experience that they will continue to talk about. There have been many challenges in my business. I have had partners that didn’t work out and business processes that hurt me but I always find a way around them. God and prayer have been and always will be my source and what helps to sustain my business whether I’m doing bad or good. I’ve learned to keep my eyes on my own paper and not be concerned about what others think about me nor what they are doing.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
In this COVID climate, we probably won’t go many places. I’m very seriously about staying home or when I go out I’m masked up. Some of my favorite places are restaurants so we would only be going to eat. I love Grand Lux, Del Frisco’s and Texas Roadhouse. If they wanted to shop, we would probably go to out of the outlet malls here or the Galleria.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My children, Kaniecia and Kaylon, are the biggest reason for my success. They are my “why” and when I get weary they motivate me to keep going.
