While managing commercial real estate properties that her family-owned, Shani, was presented with an opportunity to change the course of her life, Shani’s friend asked her to be the main model in his photography school project, and although she agreed to do so, she didn’t expect anything to come from it. Shani shared these photos on her Facebook page, the only form of social media she used. After her photos unexpectedly blew up on Facebook, Shani realized just how powerful social media could be when used as a tool to market herself. She decided to begin shooting as a model full time and leveraged all that social media had to offer, expanding her presence across multiple platforms. The launch of her Instagram came with a plethora of growth opportunities, as she found herself captivating a worldwide audience with her content.

Mindset- A determined and positive mindset are traits that will help you succeed in every aspect of life. No matter how successful you become, there will always be challenges along your journey. It’s important always to plan, keep a positive mindset, and never give up. Shani stated:

“Of course not every day is going to be a walk in the park, but pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and never give up, and you will accomplish anything you set your mind to.”

Network- It’s important to strategically leverage your connections to build a team of diverse individuals who will motivate and complement each other’s strengths and weaknesses.
