Screen Shot 2015-11-11 at 2.08.07 AMThis week we have the empowering   Editor-in-Chief of the ever popular, Deitra Magazine. We’re actually friends in real life and she’s actually given me the opportunity to write for her magazine and through this process I’ve seen how brave, kind, and empowering woman she is. In the show you’ll learn about how she started her fashion and music magazine, how she set goals for herself, and also:

  • How blogging started her towards the goal of a print magazine.
  • Why she decided to dive right into her own magazine without finishing school.
  • How people encouraging her helped her achieve her goal when everyone was doing things differently.
  • How she learned the inDesign program where she creates her magazines.
  • How she funds her magazine and keeps it going.
  • How she found people that are now involved in the magazine.
  • How she prioritizes all her goals and working a second job.
  • and her goals for the future.
