The Great Vlogger Shania Sierra. An Interview with Shania Sierra by Jason E. Foss


                             SHANIA SIERRA

               "Great Vloggers and Bloggers are unique in their own right.  They have something to give.  They have a purpose.  They have a presence about them.  Part of their goals are to help other people in some way.  They inspire us to put ourselves out there.  Shania Sierra is one of these great Vloggers.  She let's us know what motivates her."

                                                Jason E. Foss

                               

Jason:           "What motivates you the most about being a Professional Vlogger and  Blogger?"


Shania:

                       "What motivates me the most is having a felony conviction.  I started looking into freelance writing about 7 months ago.  I wanted to make income on the side or somehow work my way into creating my own business.  I didn’t know how, so I started freelance writing, which led into my blogging and creating my own website for my blogs."

                     "That then turned into me making my YouTube videos.  I want to openly share and talk about life, and my own experiences and struggles that I’ve had to face, and things Ive been through.  I want to help others who also have a felony on their record. Because life is hard with a felony conviction."


Jason:            "You are very good at what you do and there are a lot of qualities one must have to be successful. What do you feel is the best characteristic to have in order to be successful?"


Shania:         "The best characteristics to have in my opinion is integrity, grit, loyalty, honesty, and discipline.  A strong willed person with those characteristics will always be successful because they will never stop learning, achieving, and growing."


Jason:            "Do you have any other Passion or Life Goals and if so what are they?"


Shania:

                      "I have many life goals!  My first goal is to get into school for Aesthetics, finish the program, in the mean time work a part time job.  I want to also buy a house with land, with my husband.  I want to be successful in many ways.   It’s just harder for me with the type of felony I have. But I know somewhere down the road someone will give me a break, and hire me and give me an opportunity."


Jason:             "For those that are inspired by you and would like to chase their dreams and achieve their Life Goals what advice would you give them that would help them to be successful?"


Shania:

                      "My advice would be to never give up.  I know it’s easier said then done, but it can be done.  I’ve been rejected, denied, and let go from so many places.  Because they see what’s on my record, and not me as a person, and for who I am.  I’m labeled as dangerous or a liability.

                       "Nothing sucks more than not being able to do the one thing that people come here to America to do.  To work.  Because of one stupid thing I did as a teenager.  You can’t give up.  You have to keep trying. Somewhere down the road someone will see your drive, and passion and they will gravitate towards you.  Giving up is the last thing you would ever want to do.  Trust me.  Don’t let the system win."


Jason:             "You are very motivating.  For those that would love to support you how can they do so and what is the best way for them to contact you?"


Shania:

                        "I think the best way to support me is whatever way they feel like it. If that’s messaging me and talking to me, or simply following me, I appreciate it. Anyway is fine with me, a DM on social media is fine with me."

"Fairy Gazing" An Interview with Lori Katherine by Jason E. Foss


                              Lori Katherine


                 "When people look for a great poetry book there are a few names that come to mind.  The name of one of these great Poets is Lori Katherine.  We all have a creative side to us.  The imagination is a magical thing.  Her book "Fairy Gazing" captures that magic.  She was nice enough to share with us what inspired her."

                                                 Jason E. Foss


Jason:                  "When did you start writing creatively?"

Lori:

                              "I began writing poems at a young age.  I want to say around 7 or 8 years old.  I have always loved to write, whether it was stories about ghosts or love.  I craved just sitting down with a clean piece of paper, my perfectly sharpened pencils, and just allow the words to flow.  I was always willing to share my work with my family and friends, but never confident enough to actually put that work out to complete strangers!  For many years, my family and friends would ask, “Why don’t you just write a book of poetry?”  I haven’t looked back."


Jason:               "What inspired your most recent collection of poetry, "Fairy Gazing"?"

Lori:

                           "I’ve been pushing myself to write new material for the collection and truly capture those light and airy emotions that reminded readers of Spring and hope. I want my readers to get so lost in the collection that they forget it’s just a book of poetry. I just love this collection this time around and the deeper emotions each poem touches upon. I smile every time I think about it."



Jason:              "What are you currently working on?"

Lori:

                          "Well, I am currently working on my 4th book and I’m excited to get back to the raw emotional poetry that I truly am passionate about."


Jason:                "Who has had the most significant impact on your writing and how have they supported your journey as a writer?"

Lori:

                           "Super question! I would have to say that my family and my friends have had a tremendous impact on my writing and what I write about. All of them have given me their opinions on my poems, advice, suggestions and have been a great audience."

Jason:              "What three pieces of advice would you give a new writer?"

Lori:

                         "My advice to them would be to never doubt yourself.  You CAN do this!  Surround yourself with a wonderful support system and try not to compare yourself to other poets.  Develop your own style and just write what makes you happy!"

Jason:                  " What three things do you do to support other authors?"

Lori:

                             "Three things I do to show my support towards other authors are helping to promote their work by liking and retweeting their posts, commenting on their posts, and purchasing their books."


                                        CLOSING

              "Lori was inspired by creating a poetry book that gives her Readers a feeling of spring and hope.  Light and airy emotions.  My favorite thing about Lori is that she loves her collection of poetry.  That's Passion.  That's when you know that someone writes from the heart.  If you want to enjoy a collection of poems that capture the magic of emotions with the perfect touch of hope, click on the link below and experience "Fairy Gazing".

"Babygirl Let's Talk" by Kiara Mata An Interview with Kiara Mata by Jason E. Foss


                               KIARA MATA

           "Great Leaders care about people.  They strive to make others around them better.  They look past themselves.  I enjoy looking for this kind of person to find out what motivates them.  Kiara Mata is one of these Great Leaders.  She let us know what motivates her."

                                       - Jason E. Foss


Jason:           "You are an inspiration to a lot of people. A lot of women are looking forward to your book coming out. Even guys look forward to buying it because it's about empowering women without bashing men. What is your motivation?"


Kiara:

                     "My motivation behind “Babygirl Let’s Talk” is to remind women how powerful, how beautiful and how necessary they are to this world. As a woman, especially in the 21st century, I think it’s easy to get caught up and forget your worth because you’re constantly trying to prove it to others, whether it’s in a romantic relationship, at the office or even to your own family. Women wear so many hats, from mother to daughter, to employee or boss, or wife. I’ve forgotten my worth in relationships and settled for less than what I know I deserve, so I want to help other women not fall into that. I want to be their cheerleader, their motivator, and their reminder that they are worth more than diamonds or rubies."


Jason:           "You are very good at what you do and there are a lot of qualities one must have to be successful. What do you feel is the best characteristic to have in order to be successful?"


Kiara:

                     "I think the most important quality you need to be successful is grit. People will doubt you, question you, judge you and completely misunderstand you on your journey to becoming whoever and whatever God’s called you to be. For me, grit means having a dream worth fighting for, thick skin against the naysayers and most importantly, a relentless work ethic. "


                 

Jason:           "Do you have any other Passion or Life Goals and if so what are they?"



Kiara:   

                     "I love to spend time with my family. Besides traveling and being able to impact others globally, a personal goal of mine is to show my family the American Dream. My grandparents emigrated to New York when they were 20 years old, I want to show them they didn’t leave their country, their culture and language just to struggle to get by and pay the bills. I want to show them the dream." I also want to help people realize they can live that same dream too. I want them to know they don’t have settle or give up on their hopes of becoming whoever they’d like."

                 


Jason:         "For those that are inspired by you and would like to chase their dreams and achieve their Life Goals what advice would you give them that would help them to be successful?"




Kiara:

                       "I think everyone has their own path in life, but relationships are something we all have in common. People are a blessing to us. Nothing is coincidental, we cross paths for a reason, whether it’s for a season or lifetime. Learn from the people God’s placed in your life, even the ones that try your patience, they’re there for your good too even when it doesn’t feel like it."


Jason:          "You are very motivating. For those that would love to support you how can they do so and what is the best way for them to contact you?"

                          MEMBER OF SWAYZ

                                 
                "Great Singers don't just use their voice to make music.  There is more to it than that.  It means something to them.  The Feelings and Emotions that their songs create touch the lives of people all over the world.  The way we feel with our emotions they are able to capture it and lay it down on a track.  You sing their chorus and you can almost picture the person the song reminds you of.  Whether it's your first love or your last love, your wife, or if your single and there's someone you haven't approached yet that you want to date, they can make a song that you can relate to.  Singing is a gift that can make people smile, fall in love, and sometimes get people to fall in love again.  S Paris is one of these Great Singers.  He let's us know what motivates him"

"A Great Leader That's Making A Difference." An Interview with Staci Radican by Jason E. Foss


                             STACI RADICAN

               "Great Leaders don't always follow someone else's path. They make their own. Their desire to grow is not a stage in their life. It's not even a phase they are going through. It's who they are. They are committed to making themselves better. And most importantly, they are committed to their Team. They teach their team that obstacles are not a road block. It's simply a challenge that they will get through together. Staci Radican is one of these great leaders. She let us know what motivates her."

Jason:             “What motivated you to become an Organizational Leader?”


Staci:

                      “My first job as an organizational leader was not a result of intention, but rather a passion to help the customer and a desire to demonstrate my capabilities to Management.  Those traits combined with leaders who fostered a learning environment by honest, open and respectful communication fueled my sales performance. My initiative to learn and the subsequent request of additional responsibilities resulted in a promotion to Assistant Manager within three months of my being hired.”

                         “Ten months later, a move to the  Midwest  brought about my second assistant manager position with a much larger clothing retailer.  At the onset of this job, my thought was that working for a bigger company would offer greater opportunities to achieve success in an industry in which I was becoming fascinated.  However, the actuality was not as I had hoped.”

                           “I felt the leaders in this organization fostered a hostile work environment which led to poor customer service, poor productivity and massive employee turnover. Having the opportunity to observe upper managements’ communication style and what I perceived as lack of clarity and vision led me to second guess my dream of becoming a leader in this industry. It also caused me to find another job. My manager’s terse, negative response to my notice became the turning point to my becoming an intentional organizational leader.”

                            “Although my experience with this company wasn’t what I expected, I learned much about employee and customer relations and the need to build committed teams.

In my following job, I would become a store manager within 2 years and subsequently recruited by a larger chain with higher volume sales.  The opportunity to work with leaders who promoted learning, intensive training, honest, open respectful
communication and  accountability not only fueled my motivation but, shaped my leadership skills and earned me a promotion to the Training Manager for our Region.
Within three years I was again promoted to the position of District Manager
supervising up to 16 stores in multiple cities and states.”

Jason:                       “One of my favorite things about you is your selfless ways.  You help others and don't speak of it.  When I reached out you were volunteering for the Frontline Foundation making Tuna Salad for the Homeless.”


Staci:

                                 “Thank you.....I believe volunteerism is a wonderful way of giving back to the community.”


Jason: “What do you feel is the most important characteristic for a Leader to have?”


Staci:

                                  “I believe integrity and strong moral convictions are the most important characteristics a leader can possess.”


Jason:                     “You are an inspiration to a lot of people.  What advice would you give to someone that is chasing their dreams and trying to be successful?”


Staci:

                                    “My recommendation is to find employment with companies that foster a learning environment while having a solid framework of standards and rules by which to gauge performance.  Additionally, a platform to raise the benchmark with an array of incentives should be offered.”

“It’s also important for an individual to use a style of leadership that helps identify areas of opportunities for personal growth.  Understanding and identifying personality traits and leadership styles teach the necessity of exercising “situational” abilities which leads to competent, confidant, motivated individuals.  These people develop the ability to deliver brand excellence without constant a managerial presence.”

                   “I want to support this by mentioning the countless awards my teams received in retail and education. They achieved awards for top sales performance, best loss prevention, and brand excellence presentation. They were recognized for maintaining budget and cost performance. My teams were often selected to be a part of company change roll-outs and to assist in the development and implementation of new training tools and brand expectation standards.”



Jason:               “What is your favorite thing about being an Organizational Leader?”


Staci:

                     “My favorite part of being an organizational leader was learning that the skills I acquired and now teach are actually life skills which can be implemented in every area of an individual’s life.  My acquired skills led to my gaining the courage to live abroad and thrive in a foreign culture.”

                      “I would later use these same skills to gain employment as the Director/Organizational Leader in the educational system where I had the honor and privilege to positively impact numerous students and their families.”
                                             

                                    CLOSING


                       “Staci Radican was motivated by her passion to help the customer and her desire to demonstrate her capabilities to Management. When she worked in a hostile work environment she moved on. She knows her worth. She knows what she wants. She also inspires us to never settle. I love the way she takes pride in her team's success and she thrives off of making people better. Staci Radican is a great leader that doesn't just see her team as a whole but she finds strength in each Individual and puts them in a position to be successful."
