Meet Held In High Esteem

Today we’d like to introduce you to Held In High Esteem.

Thanks for sharing your story with us. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
My journey started out as a mental health counselor for four years. Every day I left work feeling like I wasn’t doing enough and wasn’t reaching enough people. I had something to say and I wanted to share it with the masses. I decided to start Held In High Esteem, as an online platform to inspire and motivate women. I started out by posting 3-4 blogs a month discussing various topics such as finances, motivation, goal setting, doing the inner work on yourself and loving yourself. Over time I’d receive multiple requests from men to make it gender inclusive because they wanted to feel inspired as well. Fast forward to today, Held In High Esteem is for all millennials. It’s about self-care and how be resilient through the everyday struggles of life. I now have a unisex clothing line and I recently published my first book.

Has it been a smooth road?
Starting a business is definitely tough, especially when it comes to marketing strategies and putting yourself out there. You have to push yourself out of your comfort zone every day, you have to remain creative, optimistic and keep going even when you’re doing things alone. Some weeks you won’t have any sells nor feel like doing anything business-related, but you have to keep going and remember the vision you originally set out for your brand. Being an entrepreneur is about taking the risk on yourself each and every day.

We’d love to hear more about your work.
I created Held In High Esteem, a lifestyle brand with the focus on self-care and resilience. I have an online blog that discusses various issues that millennials may face. I just published my first book titled ‘The Push Through Journal” which is an interactive journal designed to help readers find the confidence to push through the everyday challenges of life. It’s currently available on Amazon. I am very ecstatic to become an author and self-published at that. I think this is a great book for those who are at a turning point in their lives, ready to make the necessary changes within themselves to become mentally and emotionally stable.

Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
I love the culture of Dallas, it has it’s own authentic vibe when you really get to explore the city. I love that it’s a thriving place for young professionals and entrepreneurs. I love how Dallas always supports its’ own. I honestly can’t think of anything I don’t like about Dallas.
