We are honored to have her on as our first guest. She has taught us so much over the years and we are so excited to share her knowledge with YOU! We hope you enjoy our conversation! 

After 6+ years of brand marketing experience in the beauty industry Jakiya bid farewell to the corporate rat race in 2016 to pursue her dream of traveling the world.

From there, she started her own consulting & media company that thrives off of her unique gift of highly-engaged storytelling growing hundreds of personal brands and dozens of companies with her fresh & proven branding strategies and techniques.
