Girl, no dream is too big! I am proof of that. If you would've told me 5 years ago that my love for beauty, hair and fashion would have provided me with the opportunity to travel the world and inspire women, I wouldn't have believed you. I, like many people, have spent so many years locking my truest passions up in the prison of fear in my mind. Once I made the choice to not let my fears get the best of me, I decided to leap, soar and create this space that I use to inspire women daily. My hope is that daynabolden.com becomes a platform to remind us all to dream BIG, STOP hiding our gifts, and to GIVE ourselves permission to let our talent shine because the world needs it.
MY DEFINING MOMENT
I remember hopping off a flight after being a part of one of the biggest campaigns of my life only to have to rush home on a red-eye so that I could get my daughter to school on time, greet my husband and get to work that morning. I was exhausted, and beyond my breaking point. I have been working so hard to balance both my corporate career, and my passion that it was really starting to wear me down. As I sat at my cubicle prepping my day, I felt a surge of mixed emotions: fear, joy and excitement pour over me. I knew it was time for me to really leap and make the next step in my career. I ran to the bathroom, called my husband, holding back tears, I asked him “Do you believe in me?” He replied, “Of course, I do!” His support combined with my intuition and gut feeling was enough for me to leave my 9-to-5 corporate job and bet on myself. I put in my notice to my management team and the rest is history!
FOLLOWING PURPOSE & PASSION
While style, beauty and fashion all play an important role in my life, this journey is much more about the joys I've experienced when I decided to unleash my purpose and move towards my passion. I’ve learned my why is being a resource to you, from offering easy beauty tips to style inspiration, inspiring my friends is why I do what I do.
LOOKING TO THE FUTURE
I don’t consider myself an “influencer”, but a change agent. If I'm able to help you change or inspire even the smallest piece in your life to help you unlock your destiny, I've executed my purpose. I look forward to continuing to build this community, which I affectionally call my BOLD Tribe. I have some BIG things that I plan to unleash in 2019, and I hope you continue to join me on this ride. I am so grateful I am truly able to inspire you all to live your lives with love, passion, and style.
