Mommynoire: How did you get to where you are now in your life and career?
Neffi Walker: Patience and listening to my gut always served me well in all of my life choices. I would like to think that I have always possessed an editors eye towards style. I made a serious decision this year to move forward with it as a new business profession and career.
Mommynoire: What were some of the challenges and triumphs that you encountered?
Neffi Walker: I have always been the main obstacle for my personal progression. Sometimes doubting my worth in a situation or over thinking a task until I tired myself out! I had to sit with myself, clear my clutter and make adjustments. Once I really realized how much personal power I possessed and HOW I could implement it in my life, things changed and became more blissful.
Mommynoire: What’s the best advice you’ve been given through the years?
Neffi Walker: The best advice I ever received was from my best friend and godmother of my youngest child, Alison Threadgill. She said, “be patient with yourself and allow yourself time – you deserve time to yourself .” Those are words I live by. I realize that I cannot help anyone if I am depleted from helping everyone else.
Mommynoire: What advice do you like to give to women that are looking to craft a career they love?
Neffi Walker: Be consistent with your craft and create the proper business foundation. Hire a lawyer in your field and obtain the proper paper work. Seek advice for how to best handle your finances. It is beautiful to act on your creativity, but the proper foundation must be set to watch it come to fruition.
