“It’s easy to fear failure, but much harder to keep faith that everything will fall through how it should.To me, fear is a choice. You always have two options: faith or fear. I choose faith because knowing that my life has so much purpose means I can never go wrong, and allows me to face my fears head on.” These wise words are from Kareesha Carter Maldonado, also known as K. Maldonado, a multi-faceted wife, mother, and girl boss taking multiple industries by the storm.
They say that courage is not the absence of fear but acknowledging fear and still doing it anyway. K. Maldonado’s experiences can be compared to how diamonds are made, with extreme pressure. Growing up, she witnessed her mom being sent to jail at a young age, which led her to live a life raised by her grandmother. A few years later, she decided to move out and get that freedom she longed for. So, at the age of 17, she started to make a living for herself.
With her well being and freedom as significant drivers for her to be the best in her work, K. Maldonado explored multiple industries and held on to her dream of becoming a lady boss. With her wit, perseverance, and positive mindset, she established her own business in the beauty industry, specifically in hair products.
Aside from managing her own company, she knew that everyone needs to see the reality of starting a business: it is not as easy as it seems. With all these articles and posts on social media about getting rich fast schemes and other people promising instant success within an unrealistic time frame, people need to know the good, the bad, and the ugly parts of being an entrepreneur.
- Maldonado harnesses her experiences and struggles before she was able to make $100,000 monthly despite this pandemic in her speeches, coaching sessions, and hosting a podcast. Lady Boss is the podcast wherein she imparts nuggets of wisdom on how one can be successful in any field of choice.
One of the main points she puts in the spotlight is starting, taking the first step forward. According to K. Maldonado, it is the most challenging move to make as it needs a healthy mindset. However, the journey doesn’t stop there. One must keep nourishing that mindset, learning and growing, with every experience and lessons packed in it, to get to a particular goal.
By applying the lessons, she teaches and shares, K. Maldonado is one of the people who turned this pandemic into a profit. As a living testament to all her teachings, she continues to bloom like a magnolia in may and expands her reach like grassroots.
Indeed, this lady boss is not stopping from making her dreams into a reality and helping others simultaneously. Making others feel good about themselves motivates K. Maldonado to be her better self each day. Hence, she continuously works on new products and projects. Next year, she plans to release an eBook to widen her audience to help more.
