I was a cashier at Best Buy. It was very, very good training for how to interact with a wide variety of people.
I have so many different things going on with two different teams, so being able to go into one platform and see all of my projects from Womanish and my actual 9 to 5 job would be really fantastic.
So, I have actually had a really rough year. I lost one of my best friends and different things like that, in the midst of trying to build Womanish. At first, I didn’t even want to do this anymore. Whenever I’m having a bad day or I feel myself getting sad, I take a sec to recognize it. I’m like, “Okay, Dionna. You’re feeling sad right now. You can stay sad and not be able to move on, or you can say that it’s okay to feel sad, and then think of something new that will make you feel happy.” That’s my thought process, and it works for me.
Try to be the better you, every single day. I think that there’s been so many times where I messed up or I did something wrong, whether it was with Womanish or in my career. You’re just like, “Oh, I suck,” or whatever, but it’s okay! You will fail, you will always make mistakes, but it’s just about trying to be better than who you were yesterday. If you didn’t get anything on your checklist done yesterday, just be like, “Okay.” Analyze, “Why didn’t I do this?” Because for me, a lot of the time it was that I didn’t write it down or that I was on Instagram too long. Just seeing why you failed and improving upon that the next day will really take you further.
I actually want to found a bank franchise.
