It’s no secret that hobbies and passions outside of a full time job can turn into careers, but at what point do you make the decision to REALLY focus on your said hobby? Well, if you don’t know the answer to that question you should have been in attendance at the 2nd Annual Ignite Your Influence Conference. Created by Charlotte Influencer Majesty Acheampong (@bornmajestic), it was a space intended for influencers and content creators come together, network, and learn from individuals in this growing industry.
Held on last Sunday, from 10am-3pm. Attendees heard from Kish Burries (@kishmykurls), Lola Akinkuowo (@lola.akw), Valerie Eguavoen (@valerieeguavoen), Brittany Hennessy (@mrsbrittanyhennessey), & Mattie James (themattiejames). They all gave insight on the highs and lows of influencing as women of color.
As I am re-entering this space, I’m learning about all the tools and traits that are necessary to have a successful platform. I am not going to lie…it’s going to be tough for me, but I know that the struggle is only temporary and the reward will be greater. I just hope that you all will take the ride with me and give me support!
Please enjoy photos from the event! :)
I received so many compliments on my outfit! I can probably count on one hand the amount of times I’ve worn it, but I never got a chance to photograph it. This robe is by Caroline Constas and from the Fall 2018 collection. Unfortunately the robe isn’t available anymore, but there is a dress in the same print and material available here. I also linked my shoes and a pre-owned turquoise version of the robe!
