“You need to be aware of what others are doing, applaud their efforts, acknowledge their successes, and encourage them in their pursuits. When we all help one another, everybody wins.” –Jim Stovall

I am so excited to talk to y’all about the new project that I have been busy working on for Reyna Lay Designs. This project was put on my heart after seeing how much negativity there is in the world, especially if you are trying to start and grow a business for yourself. Our greatest privilege is to applaud one another in our efforts, creatively, physically, and business-wise. It is a privilege to encourage each other in our pursuits by sharing our own stories and passing our wisdom to one another. This is why I decided to create The RLD Podcast. My goal for this podcast is to interview people from all different journeys of life and to allow them to share their stories with you in order to build each other up, empower us to be successful in everything we choose to do, and to inspire us on our own journey of life. I already have so many amazing people, both men and women, lined up for the first season of The RLD Podcast! We are going to tackle so many subjects all geared toward the same goal: building, empowering, inspiring.
