We have the good fortune of connecting with so many bright, accomplished folks from a variety of industries and we often ask them to tell us what they feel has been the most important factor behind their success. We’ve shared some highlights below.

Cynthia gund | Online fitness influencer

I would say the most important factor behind any successful business is consistency. When someone decides to start a business or brand, the beginning will be very discouraging but that’s because the foundation of something is always slow in order to make the perfect finish. At first when I started my online content, I wasn’t getting a lot of views or attention, the content that I was creating was poor because I wasn’t putting my mind into it but because I had my vision on where I was going and how I wanted to impact my field I stayed consistent.

Our culture and what we put out in the world! (Our heart) We preach that everything we do is PA’ MI GENTE which translated means – For My People. We strongly believe in taking care of others without judgement. My family comes from services of hospitality and care taking. We love on people no matter your “story.” We get to help each other out.

Bree Iman Clarke | Founder & Creative Director of The Plant Project

I always say, Success is never owned, it is rented and rent is due everyday. I do not believe that I have reached the pinnacle of my success-which is why I say this. There are many factors that come in play when you are speaking about success. To some it may be about the amount of money you are making. To others about the notoriety. Some the time. I believe the most important factor behind success especially mine is knowing, it is a journey. A journey that will have highs and lows. A journey that many times in order to appreciate your highs you must experience lows to learn from them. To grow from them. Read more>>

Michelle Konieczny | Owner of Rust & Rose Photography

Being authentic to myself and my brand. My vibe is lifestyle, connection, sunlight, sunsets, and a little moody. I always get the Christmas card shots, but I spend a lot of time making sure I capture those authentic true self/true connection shots to cherish for years to come. Read more>>

Becca Roses | Mindset & Business Mentor

Authenticity. I have always been committed to sharing the real me and leading with my heart. I truly believe when we show up as our authentic selves, we give others around us permission to do the same. When people come first before the outcome, you attract others that want you to succeed and you truly want to help others succeed. It’s a win-win. When we are truly living in alignment with who we really are, it starts to inspire authenticity and confidence all around us. Read more>>

Nina Sonier | Owner & CEO of Nina Paul’s Beauty Garden

I’m actually a shy person so I use to express myself through beautiful things. I absolutely love everything about the beauty industry. In my opinion makeup is a very skillful talent. I think what sets me apart is I go that extra mile for my clients. Especially my brides. It takes a lot of self discipline to progress in any craft. So to still be doing make and hair successfully after 10 years speaks volumes to me. It’s encouraging and motivating. It wasn’t easy and with things and new techniques constantly being introduced you have to be willing to invest in yourself, learn, and be open minded to things. I want the world to know I’m just getting started. Stay tuned…. Read more>>
