We had the good fortune of connecting with Destiny LifeBeingDest and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Destiny, every day, we about how much execution matters, but we think ideas matter as well. How did you come up with the idea for your business?
I did not know when I started that I was essentially creating a business. It started off as a hobby then eventually turned into my passion. I always struggled with social anxiety so I stayed to myself a lot. But I also did not like feeling alone. So, I would watch YouTube videos. I started to watch YouTube so much that there was not any more videos to watch. That was when I decided to pick up a camera, hit record, start talking to it and upload my own videos to Youtube. I started to monetize anything and everything I could. I created a clothing brand that people also refer to as my merch. I started a podcast and I am also writing a book. Can’t forget to also post on TikTok! Once my Instagram with over 250K got deleted that was when I realized, you cannot put all your eggs in one basket. Now I diversify my presence amongst all of the social media platforms even though I started on YouTube.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I refused to listen to the ones who doubted me. I knew that my goals seemed too far out of reach for other’s because they did not know the rest of my story. They were only seeing the words on the first page. Everything I do I have a strategic plan. Not always has it been as successful as I imagined it but if that was the case then knowledge was something I gained. I share these lessons openly with my audience making myself not only relatable but also reminding everyone we are all human.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Calling the plug to pick up Going to the beach to have a picnic
Going to my house to freshen up
Go to the club if its that typa weekend
Getting cross faded then uber home safely!!
