What makes you feel most authentically you?
When I'm creating there's a point where I get really in the flow. I forget my environment, forget my problems and worries, and really just connect with my inner self.
What does being authentic mean to you?
Authenticity isn't something that can be taught, it's just doing you. Doing what makes you happy, what motivates you, without feeling apologetic.
What are you proud to support?
I am proud to support all of the strong entrepreneurs that decided to leave from their 9-5's and go all in on their dreams. Going all in on your dreams can be scary, but of all the small business owners I've worked with, they always tell me that it was worth it and that they are finally able to build their own wealth.
What are you proud to rebel against?
Everyone working in cannabis right now is a rebel in one way or another, but I like to think my personal rebellion is against the establishment, colonizers, and society its self.
What is your favorite quirk about yourself?
I am super weird and dorky and people always told me my whole life, but I am finally comfortable with being that part of myself all the time.
Why is it so important for women to support other women?
Women are such beautiful, complex, warm, divine beings. When we share our energy with each other, in turn we will become more powerful. Only women can understand the journey that women are going through and to have half of society as a safety net? That's something.
What does the Lady Jays Lifestyle mean to you?
A Lady Jays lifestyle is sexy and boss. We can get it done right, and with some style thrown in.
