LET ME SHINE: NIKKI-THE BEAUTIFUL BRAIN OF NIKKI’S MARINADE

Welcome back to another great chit chat with our beautiful guest here. I’ve met this young woman a few weeks back at my first ” bloggers’ meetup“. We’ve talked for a while and I can assure you that she’s a leader and a go-getter. She doesn’t sleep on her dreams and that right there got me motivated. Today, i have the honor to have her here to share her story. Let’s get started:

Can you tell our readers about yourself?
 – I go by the name of Nikki and i’m the owner and founder of “Nikki’s Marinade“. I’m the first Haitian American generation . I consider myself as a big dreamer , hard-worker , and most of all i’m very very passionate about my products.
What was your greatest failure and what did you learn from that?
– One of my great failures was letting people stop me from starting my business back in 2008. Some friends and family members would tell me that everyone makes their own Epis/marinade and no one would be interested in my products. I call them dream killers and I actually listen to them until last year I decided to take a leap of faith.

Who has impacted you the most in life? 
-My mother. Through everything that went  in life,  she never gave up and she’s always pushing forward ’til these days.
What is your greatest achievement in life?
 – One of my greatest achievements was to face my fears all the time by  stating  that it  can  no longer control me. A lot of times, we don’t act upon whatever because of fear and miss out on a lot of opportunities.
What do you do in your spare time?
-I love going out to the beach. It helps me relax and come up with new ideas.
You’re well known in the community as a community leader. How do you feel about that?
 -Great! In life, it’s not always about taking but is what you can offer to others to enrich their lives.

What/ who has inspired you to follow this path?
-GOD. I always knew I was going to be rich one day but I didn’t know how and the older I got the more restless I become. One day during my devotional prayer,  GOD dropped the idea in my spirit. It took faith to bring it forth, and GOD bringing the right people on my path to keep it going.
How do you motivate yourself?
-Whenever I feel giving up, I start thinking about where I came from until now and the vision God had given me. That’s what keeps me going.
What do you find the most frustrating aspect of being a ( Business Owner)
Not getting support from the people  I thought would be there for me such as:  friends, family, acquaintances, etc….

-Describe yourself in one word and why? 
Ambitious. I started my business with little to no money and believe within myself that one day I will have the capability to supply jobs to others.

Any advice for our young people out there?
-Believe in yourself, and in the gifts that GOD gave you. Stop trying to imitate others just because they’re successful. Find your own path and what GOD has planned for you to do then  you will be successful and happy.
