We had the good fortune of connecting with Naomi Melton and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Naomi, what role has risk played in your life or career?
Throughout the years, I’ve learned that there is a hierarchy in the world and in order to be at the top of that hierarchy, you are going to have to take some risks. Taking risks can be scary and there were even times where I felt defeated and discouraged but that’s a normal feeling to have, especially when your livelihood is on the line. The beauty of it all is that taking risks will, one day, pay off in a major way for you and your business. I know this to be true because it has paid off for me. I have sacrificed a lot to be in the position I’m in and I’m not done yet! I’m still taking on new (smart) risks in order to continue to grow and achieve success.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
I am a brand ambassador and influencer and I am also an Affiliate/Network Marketer. I strongly believe that my drive and hunger for success sets me apart from others. I have faced and endured every setback possible and I’m still pushing forward and achieving new goals. It has not been an easy journey and I want others to know that if you want something bad enough, you have to earn and work for it. There was a time where I was very impatient and wanted money to come in quickly without having to put much effort into getting it. I soon learned that money that comes fast, leaves even faster. So I changed my focus and started putting my energy into my long term goals. How can I build residual income with multiple streams and secure my future and not just my present? That’s the question I asked myself and through years of searching and finding my niche, I finally found something that, not only I love, but is profitable. Building my brand to where it is now has taken a lot of work and sacrifice and I want to let others know, success will not happen overnight. You have to put in the time to achieve wealth. It is possible for everyone!
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Our first stop would definitely be Market Street in the Woodlands. There’s great shopping, food, and drinks all in one area and it’s a beautiful family atmosphere. On another day, we would also go get manicures and pedicures at a private salon suite followed by an incredible massage at a local spa. One of my favorite places to unwind is the rooftop pool area at the Aloft hotel so we would definitely fit that in on our itinerary. I would take her to my favorite restaurant, Babin’s and we would also catch a movie at the iPic theater! My favorite place to shop is Nordstrom so we would take some time out there to get some retail therapy in. Saltgrass is another one of my favorite restaurants so that would have to be on the list as well. Finally, another great hangout spot would be Axel rad! They have specialty drinks, nice outdoor seating and family games! It’s the coolest place ever!
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I have to thank God for giving me the strength and courage to step out on faith and pursue a career path that some would call unconventional. I also definitely have to give credit to my amazing parents, sister, and my significant other and our awesome son for continuously encouraging me along this journey. They have all played a tremendous role with keeping me focused and determined to achieve my career goals. It is definitely because of their love, care, and affirmations that I am reaching new heights everyday.
With that being said, my sister, Chelsea Melton deserves all the recognition, exposure, and praise! She is a mom, business woman, entrepreneur, and an overall great example of what a woman should be. My shoutout definitely goes to her!
