Beautiful & powerful at any age
ACTRESS-TURNED-ENTREPRENEUR AND OWNER OF STYLED TIMELESS PRODUCTIONS
Tell us about your career. I’ve known since I was very young that I wanted to be in the media and film industry – I’m a born entertainer. I’ve merged my natural creativity with media and spirituality, and it works exactly as
I wanted it to. I’m currently hosting an online show called Conversations We Never Had, which deals with spiritual matters.
What does this new career offer that your previous one didn’t? Working on the pre-production for the show forced me to play roles I’d never played before, which was an eyeopening experience. In my previous career, I felt as if I was stagnating. Now I’m growing continually.
How does your new career fulfil you? I’ve only been in it for four months, but my soul feels complete and in tune with the universe. I feel supported and guided by God and I’m inspired to help others find their life’s purpose. People who are unhappy can’t give love. I want to help them find meaning in their work and lives, as well as an opportunity to create. That’s how joy comes to us.
What are your long-term plans? I see myself filming 13 seasons, each of which will take six months (including pre- and post-production) to put together. So that will keep me busy for the next six-and-a-half years. I’d also like to meet Oprah Winfrey and tell her how she helped me find my calling.
What advice can you offer those wanting to change career paths? It’s important that they know exactly why they want to transition. It’s a gamble, but with enough research and proper planning, everything should work.
What does success mean to you? Finding fulfilment and happiness.
What was the best book you ever read? Yesterday, I Cried by Iyanla Vanzant [Touchstone].
