We had the good fortune of connecting with Breanna Brooks and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Breanna, any advice for those thinking about whether to keep going or to give up?
It’s simple! You don’t! You owe it to yourself to see whatever it is in its entirety. Why put in so much work and time to give up? I would much rather keep going and see the end results rather than give up and have so many unanswered questions. You may very well get frustrated, take some losses, have some delays, denials, etc., along the way. However, something initially lit a fire in you to get started, so you owe it to yourself to keep going.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I work in healthcare on the IT side. The funny thing is this career fell into my lap ten years ago in college. What started as a student work-study job, end up carrying over to a full-blown career. It’s is not easy because this is not what I originally went to school for, but I’m a fast learner, so that has helped me a lot in my career. The lessons I’ve learned so far “always stay gracious, the best revenge is your paper” lol. In all seriousness is to be patient with me. What I want the world to know is? While I do work a corporate job, that’s just one part of me. I also have a blog that I recently launched called breanna-Nicole.com. I am a brand!!
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
If it was up to me I would host something in my home. I’m not the person that knows where all the popularity spots are. If you’re looking for a nice kickback in a small home base setting. Then I’m the right person!
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
There are so many people that deserve some recognition but I have to give the main people their flower. First and foremost is God! He has kept me, sustain me, and shown me so much favor it really just blows my mind. My husband. He’s my motivator, encourager, photographer and so much more. He see all the work I put it in, he’s my The backbone, for sure. My immediate family, they don’t always understand the blogging/content creator world lol. However, they are still willing to support and invest in me. My best friend Shahena- she is absolutely amazing. She has her own business (Rose Glow aesthetics). She still finds time to support me in so many ways. My sorority sisters – Many people don’t understand the love and bond that you have with your sorority sisters. The encouragement, support, prayers and love are endless!
