Who are you and what do you do in 30 words or less?
My name is Carla J. Curtis. I’m a child of God, mother, grandmother, author, encourager, motivator, motivational speaker, counselor intern and entrepreneur.
How do you remain empowered as an entrepreneur?
Praying, meditating, networking with others and always reminding myself that there is always something to be learned. I also seek the services of a coach. In addition, I ensure that self-care is a top priority.
How do you remain equipped as an entrepreneur, where/how do you fuel your growth?
I believe in lifelong learning. Therefore, I attend seminars, workshops and conferences, read business magazines and books and seek the services of a coach.
Where does your inspiration come from?
My inspiration comes from God, praying, meditating and being surrounded by and interacting with positive people from all walks of life.
What is your “WHY” — why do you do what you do?
I do what I do because I know that God has blessed me with specific gifts to inspire and motivate others through various mediums. Also, I am and have always been passionate about inspiring and giving hope to others as well as helping people reach their personal and professional goals. Overall, I want each person that I come in contact with whether personally or professionally to walk away from the conversation feeling as though they have been enthused to reach their fullest potential and that they feel valued.
What is your #1 tip for other entrepreneurs?
Be true to yourself, absorb as much information as you can, and if there isn’t a lane for what you are doing, don’t be afraid to create one.
