Welcome back to the blog! It’s “Shoutouts Saturday”! This is the time where we put the spotlight on fellow Carolina BOSS Girls in Action! These are the girls and women across the states who are putting their dreams in action and making BIG moves.
We at C.G.I.A. wanted to get to know the Goddess Rootz owner a little better, so we asked her a few questions.
How did the idea for your business come about?
♥Well I’ve always wanted to have my own business so it was always in the back of my head, but I didn’t really have the money to start on what I actually wanted to do. I was just going off one day on how tired I am of people wearing those little black Chokers that had no style or spark to them. (I’m a big fan of chokers.) So one day I was talking to my sister and all of sudden a bell rung and I was like OHHHH I should make my own chokers and sale them! And from that point on me and my sister stayed up all night and next day making a website and Etsy account and working on a logo and that’s where it all started.
What has been some of your failures and what did you learn from them?
♥My failures have actually been not planning things out before actually making moves. In the beginning when it was only just Chokers. I did not plan out anything, I just dived right in which was a big mistake because I made business cards and ended up changing my mind about the design and everything I wanted on there so I had to keep buying business cards which of course was messing with my pockets. Also not marketing enough. A BUSINESS PLAN is MAJOR key for a successful business and MARKETING is MAJOR key as well so make sure you do both. Now with this new re-launching of the site I can successfully say that everything is so much better as far as a business plan and so much more. My journey with goddessrootz has definitely taught me a lot and now I’m ready to take over the world 🙌🏽 #goddessrootzmob ISSA MOVEMENT 💓 #woman-empowerment 💓
What is the one piece of advice you would give to young entrepreneurs like yourself?
♥I would say don’t look at others success and compare it to yours. That will get you nowhere! You have to focus on your brand and what exciting new things YOU can bring that is different to this world of entrepreneurship. Be unique and be yourself and know that through hard work and dedication that your time is coming! Don’t rush it, take it day by day! And pray over your business.

We say it at the start of each new month, right?
“Okay, this time, I’m gonna do it for REAL.”
Whether we’re talking about our health, bettering our relationships, going to school…again…It’s always the same spiel. And it stays as such. Just a spiel. Not our reality. You know why? Because at the end of the day—we don’t know what we truly want.
What? That’s not true.
I want to be healthy.
I want to be happy in my love life.
I want to graduate.
Okay, but what does that actually look like?
You want to be healthy. Fine. But what does that mean? What does being healthy mean to you? What do your meals look like each day? What do you do for exercise? What size pants are you wearing once you’ve reached your goal?
You want your love life to be a happy love life? What does that mean? Do you guys dance in the middle of the kitchen in your pajamas together at midnight? Good communication? Do you two work well together? Are you a stay-at-home mom and he brings home the bacon?
You want to graduate? Okay, so for starters, did you enroll? (And yes, I’m talking to myself right here.) What classes do you need to take to get that degree? Do you stay in touch with your advisor? What outfit are you going to wear under that cap and gown? What job are you going to have after you graduate?
Let’s stop—TALKING—and DO.
Picture that thing that you want and run after it full speed!
After all this being said, it’s Work-it-out Wednesday for the blog, and my own personal goal for my health journey was to make small changes each week. The first small change? Simply walking 10 minutes a day. And of course today is the HOTTEST day that it has been in weeks. But whatever. I wrote out my plan and I’m sticking to it. I have my goals written down, and now all that is left to do is reach them!
There is nothing else on earth like a pretty colored dress with a bold pattern. I mean, that’s all you need in life, right?
Well, that, and some pumps in an equally bold color.
