1. What is the name of your business and can you tell us a little bit more about it?
Sociva Studios! We are a creative marketing agency that serves brands in fashion, beauty and wellness. I offer branding, social media management, web design, graphic design & more!
My business name “Sociva Studios” once evolved from “Digital Diva.” I decided to change it after growing out of my old name and wanting a new name that was oh-so-chic and felt like something bigger than just myself. I was inspired by designer fashion brands and names like Sephora and Aveda. I was driving one day thinking hard about a new name and knew I wanted to create something of my own. I thought about what I offer and wanting to still inherit a part of my old name. “Social & Diva" came to mind, I put them together and that’s how I created “Sociva.” So-She-Vuh.
2. What has been your biggest win as an entrepreneur thus far?
Definitely the incredible women I’ve been able to meet and work with along this journey. I get to be inspired by my clients every day and I learn from them as much as they learn from me. From boss-moms to boss-babes, they are hard working warriors I’m grateful to be inspired by every single day. (shoutout to the Dames, this includes you!) They really have grown to be friends and family and I'm grateful to be a small part of helping them build their dreams.
3. Where do you find daily motivation and inspiration?
My family! I come from a family of incredibly hard workers. As a 1st gen baby and the rainbow sheep of the family, I want to make them proud.
4. What is the best piece of advice you have received and who was it from?
“What if you woke up tomorrow with only the things you thanked God for yesterday?” From this, I remember to be grateful and thank God for every single thing in my life. From the roof over my head, to my job that I love and most importantly for the loved ones around me, I make sure to write my gratitude for it all at the beginning of each day.
5. What is your morning routine?
“Alexa, play Soul Coffee Playlist,” light some candles, 20 min yoga flow, shower, get ready, pick up a coffee (my favorite part of my morning!), come back home, make breakfast, sit in my workspace, write in my journal, check all social accounts, take my morning calls and then get myself to the office for the rest of the day!
6. What is your favorite podcast?
The Goal Digger Podcast by Jenna Kutcher. Changed. My. Life.
7. Something that most people wouldn’t know about you:
I’m an organized freak! Everything in my life needs be organized from the events on my calendar to the food in my pantry, the sticky notes at my desk, my every day bag, the jewelry in my jewelry box, the tampons under my sink! Everything in my home has a place and as soon as I’m done organizing everything, I find new (and better) ways to organize it all again!
8. If you could go back to when you started your company what would you say to yourself?
Be patient. Be confident. You’re brilliant so trust your f***ing gut.
