Today we’d like to introduce you to Aria The Bawse.
It’s an honor to speak with you today. Why don’t you give us some details about you and your story. How did you get to where you are today?
How I got to where I am today is by having willpower. When I say willpower I mean having that strength to fight. Having the strength to continue to get up no matter how many times I’ve been knocked down (homelessness, abuse, trauma, deception etc). I reach points were I have so much fight that it sickens me to take those rest days. Then, God insists and eventually sits me down like the bell in between a professional fight.
As I have grown so much closer to God and my spirituality the fighter in me has reached new levels. Not only is it fight, if I can sneak another in it would be belief. See, when you believe, when you put faith over fear you become unstoppable. I learned fear is false evidence appearing real and I remind myself of that daily. So if I focus on having faith and it is the opposite of fear I then start to live in my truth, abundance finds me easily and attract all things positive.
I’m sure your success has not come easily. What challenges have you had to overcome along the way?
Some changes I had to overcome along the way was being okay with change. Not getting sucked into the victim mentality. An example, I’ve experienced homelessness and things were indeed different. So many changes occurred in just a few hours literally.. inside one big obstacle that was sent to destroy my faith. Instead of crying everyday (I did cry some days but no more than 5 to 10 minutes) and beating myself up I asked myself real questions “what choices did I make to lead me here? What steps can I make so this doesn’t happen again? What do I have right now that I can be grateful for?“.
Changing my mindset and going from negative to positive I was able to grow my platform from about 9.8k to a little under 14k in a month and a half organically while in the shelter. I had brands dropping off product to the friendly’s around the corner from the Salvation Army I stayed at. I built my fan base and grew so in love myself. I started to embrace the change, actually, so much I started to excel there. I was gifted things and given extra classes etc. for my exceptional behavior.
Change is okay, if you allow it to be. I didn’t look at it as it’s happening to me, I looked at it like it’s happening for me. It’s happening for me so I can have a testimonial to tell the people I was sent here to impact.
Let’s talk about the work you do. What do you specialize in and why should someone work with you over the competition?
I specialize in a few things from social media content creation and idea mapping, I am a motivational speaker, writer both plays/scripts as well as music, day trade and event plan.
What separates me is that I actually enjoy what I do. To help a brand reach more of their targeted audience through tasty content, tasty posture structure and confidence/belief in themselves and vision just makes my day. I could say the same for artist and actors it brings me the same satisfaction. I have written a series that will be airing on many of the mainstream channels and apps we know today and seeing the actors bring the lines to life is so beautiful. I write music as well and sometimes it’s real things these musicians have gone through and I connect with them on an empathetic level to get the lyrics out.
If I can be honest when it comes to trading I have the best mentorship ever and I have to give credit where it’s due, best thing about me is I’m the plug too.
Lastly, when I plan my events so much thought, time and energy goes behind it. Between the models, glam team etc. we build a family. What separates me is, no one will care more than I do as well as get the job done the way that I do. What way is that? The Bawse way!
What’s your best piece of advice for readers who desire to find success in their life?
My best piece of advice for my butterflies out their looking to achieve success is this, be clear on what you want. When I say “be clear on what you want” I mean as the great Earl Nightingale says “success is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal”. Example, If you want to be the best mother and actively work towards that doing things like cleaning, taking care of the kids etc. you are indeed successful.
Get clear on the things you say you want and work towards it everyday for more than one reason. First one is you can’t just look at a stove and say “give me fire” you have to actually make some steps to getting it up and going and eventually, lit. Another is if you stop in the middle you slow down the process. Keep progressing. You might have had one more step left to get the stove going but you got lazy, you let life knock you out the game etc. now, you may never experience heat and what a tragedy, you were so close. Get clear!
At times we have no idea that we are doing all the things needed to SUCCESSFULLY light the stove or we do and still stop, that’s called blocking our own blessings or self-sabotage. A little bit a day is better than nothing for those juggling more than one thing. Just do what’s necessary to light the stove, your future self will thank you, trust me. Get clear!
Speaking of success, what does the word mean to you?
Success to me is like the great Earl Nightingale said “success is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal”. I just constantly tap into my mentorship, myself and God. I Stay in alignment with my worthy ideal and make it my business to progress everyday towards it. And that’s all I need to get me through to the next day.
