My personal brand which holds my podcast, youtube channel, books and more – is where I help women become more clear on their purpose in order for them to build profitable 6-figure brands and monetize their expertise.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Honestly, retired lol. I’ll be 32 in 5 years that means I’ve worked 11 hard years as an entrepreneur by this point, I need to see the fruits of my labor. Hiring employees so I can just have my companies has always been the goal. But of course, me being me I can’t retire, retire – but I’d love to travel the world with my wife and kids, being a public speaker and best-selling author. All while making some life- long investments for my legacy.
Discuss a challenge you’ve encountered as an entrepreneur and how you overcame it.
Saying no was a big challenge and negotiating your price. Sometimes you are scared to ask your price because you may think its too much. But if that’s what your value is and your worth then ASK. When people ask well can we negotiate this price the answer is NO your price is your price. People don’t go into the Louis Vuitton store asking for price negotiation.
What’s next for Milan?
Ah so much, I am expanding my cooking brand – if you know me you know I love cooking! I’ve revamped so many aspects of all of my brands. It is honestly a sit back and wait and see type of thing because there’s so much about to happen! I know that I am so close to everything that God has in store for me – It is grind season.
