IS THIS MIC ON CAMPAIGN SUPPORTER: PORSCHE WILLIAMS
we recently spoke with PORSCHE WILLIAMS OF THE PROTOTYPE to learn how she is amplifying her voice through her brand.
My voice deserves to be heard because....
I know I'm not alone in my journey. I know there are other parents and busy professionals out there that just want to find some balance and get some of their time back like me. I know there are other people trying to fit 36 hours into 24 hours and they could use some help. I'm here to help them!
“I decided to go after my dreams when I decided that it wasn't worth it to continue not pursuing them..”
What does finding your voice mean to you?
I'm still finding my voice...entrepreneurship tests you in ways that you wouldn't believe, it pushes you and challenges you and rewards you, in the midst of all of that my voice is changing and growing. I decided to go after my dreams when I decided that it wasn't worth it to continue not pursuing them.
Did your upbringing shape who you are today?
Yes, my upbringing drives me to follow my passion and not settle for the "stable" option, it forces me to take risks and believe in my ability to create the life I want to live.
Describe your journey? What was your defining moment?
I'm on the journey right now, it's in me, always has been, I'm just executing now! I don't know that I've reached my defining moment, but I do know the moment that allowed me to be able to take the leap. When I was presented with the choice of continuing to work and putting my son in daycare vs staying home with him, I immediately knew that I wanted the flexibility to watch him grow and that I would be able to do that as an entrepreneur.
Advice to someone in search of finding their voice in the entrepreneurial, influencer and creative space.
My advice is to block out the noise. It's good to get opinions, advice and guidance on your business, but you don't have to act on everything. Cherry-pick what's right for you and leave the rest behind. Get by yourself, think about your vision, figure out the core of what you want to do and do that!
