Today we’d like to introduce you to Aria “The Bawse”.
It’s an honor to speak with you today. Why don’t you give us some details about you and your story. How did you get to where you are today?
I am a mother of a beautiful girl named Leilani Yvette and she truly is a huge part of my world. Before her, I was just getting through life, because of her, I have now found my purpose in life. I have a four year degree in psychology from New Jersey City University. I gave birth to my daughter on a Thursday and I was back in school on Monday. Resiliency is a part of my make up it’s one of the tools that I possess that has got me to where I am today. What got me where I am today is not believing what other people think about me, honestly, not even caring what other people think about me. What got me where I am today is staying focused on the end goal which is living a life by design and not by default. I knew I was special & I was not set on being average. It was a long journey to get here, but my goodness the views from the top are breathtaking. Never give up, believe in yourself, trust in HIM and work hard EVERYDAY! Because no one is gonna hand success to you… you have to want it, work hard for it and make the decision! Like my mentor the great Johnny Wimbrey said in his book building a millionaire mindset, you have to participate in your own rescue and that’s what I did.
I’m sure your success has not come easily. What challenges have you had to overcome along the way?
This success in no way was easy, I literally fought so hard for this.. I would not allow myself to become a statistic. I’ve experienced homelessness in shelters, bouncing house to house and also living in my car. I just kept a positive mindset & truly believed in myself even when it was hard to do. I’ve experienced domestic violence, my life was threatened multiple times and I was even choked out unconscious. I had to put me first & leave, I could not get caught up in playing with my life… I knew I had purpose & a daughter looking up to me. I’ve experienced attempting to take my own life… and soon after realizing I have so much more purpose here on earth… it took me one time.. (which I can honestly say it was one of the lowest points of my life) for me to pick myself up and be my own best friend… that day… I found myself. I realized it was for me to love me not anyone else… and that’s what I did. I experienced low Self-esteem because of my dark skin, because of my full lips etc. Later, I Realize these are things that make me unique and these other things that make me beautiful and once I learn to embrace and except myself I was able to walk in my true beauty. Stay tuned to my book dropping In the new year 2022.
Let’s talk about the work you do. What do you specialize in and why should someone work with you over the competition?
I specialize in a number of areas, I am an international Model & Lifestyle influencer I’ve been on billboards, interviewed by some of the best, walked in New York fashion week and more. What sets me A part is that is my hunger, I’m willing to take constructive criticism, I practice and perfect my craft. I will never get comfortable and I will constantly evolve in my craft and continue to work on personal development. I repurpose clothing that it collecting dust in your closet or you’ve had it for so long but you just can’t let it go. We will style it something completely different. I can make thigh high boots, two piece sets, pajama sets and more. I connect with the customer, I have a quick turn around and I truly care. I am A branding and marketing strategist here I help brands find themselves and establish a relationship with their audience. I help with the algorithm of their Instagram page; As a paid content creator on the social media platform Instagram I can help brands on their journey to paid work. I give free tips & free audits. Lastly, I am a true businesswoman, I have been in the top 10% of my company for the last nine months and helped other people do the same. We send out QR code’s from anywhere in the world & create residual income. I do this part time and was able to retire from a 9-5 @ 24.
What’s your best piece of advice for readers who desire to find success in their life?
The best advice I can give is remember to be grateful for what you currently have… I constantly remind myself to love myself where I’m at and that’s so important on your journey towards success. An easy way to identify which direction you want to move in is understanding your strength. For example, if it’s easy for you to motivate others and they are drawn to you for advice you may want to look into being a motivational speaker, a social media influencer, counselor etc. and act on. Figure out how YOU will impact the world and how YOU want to be remembered and what YOU want to be remembered for. Truly understand that everything we went through and currently go through is not for us it’s for someone else. I understand my purpose and that’s why I get up everyday and give life all I got. Because when I wake up anytime I do I understand the message, I still have work to do. I feel OBLIGATED to do my part and impact the world, once you figure out just how you are gonna do that, and act, success will follow. That’s what I live by and that’s what drives me.
Speaking of success, what does the word mean to you?
Personally, the definition of success was taught to me by Earl Nightingale in the strangest secret. He said “Success is the progressive realization of a worth ideal.” And to me that made so much sense… only once I decided to be an international model, business women, author etc. and actively acted on that ideal the success started pouring in. Success to me looks like financial freedom, a daughter that’s proud of me, a me that’s proud of me and money being set to the side for my future grands and great grands. Success means the breaking of generational curses, self love and proper self care. Success means legacy, creating core values and proper standards. Success means to me being the example that anything is possible with faith, hard work, consistency and a lucrative environment to grow and flourish.
Furthermore, “Success is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal” I stand by that.
What’s next for you?
There is so much I’m working on between the launching on my book and my daughter’s book, I’m also launching my clothing brand in 2022. I plan on modeling for companies like Puma, Nike, Adidas, Savage x Fenty, Milano di Rouge and more! I plan to take on even bigger clients helping them scale their brands with social media branding and marketing. As a paid content creator it’s so possible to monetize ANY social media platform and I’m here to serve, give the tools and necessary guidance. As far as my Business goes I plan to help 2000 people get into business for themselves and get them on the right side of money. The business model and compensation plan is like no other, not to mention the personal development. Before going into business I only knew about residual bills.. I never knew about residual income, liquid money and more. If you are ready for a side business that could possibly be the change you are looking for connect with me. I’ve been given multiple talents which means I have multiple audiences to impact and I accept that gracefully. Stay tuned and tap in if you haven’t already.
