Lessons To Other Mompreneurs

Redd asked Hylton what advice she’d like to impart on other moms who want to start their own thing, but don’t know where to begin. For Hylton, throughout her life, she’s taken the time to periodically sit down and write out her goals. She writes down who she is and where she is now, where she wants to be, and what steps need to be taken to go from point A to point B. She’s brutally honest with herself, and has had to acknowledge when some of her current habits aren’t in line with her goals.

Always work on yourself, too, says Hylton. “When you work on yourself, you’re working on your business.” You also improve your relationships with everyone in your life when you work on yourself, says Hylton. And you start to recognize who around you is not working on themselves, and perhaps make less space for them.

More than anything, it really does take a village. You need both mentors and sponsors, says Hylton. Mentors can coach you but sponsors – like her uncle – are plugged into the communities you work in and wants to find you opportunities.

Hylton also shared how special it has been to instill confidence in her children. She’s shown them that “Their future is in their hands and they can design their own life.”
