Introduce Yourself/Tell About Yourself: Hello. My name is Janae Marie. I am the author of 5 books and I also have an online boutique shop called Janae’s Closet. As well as a blog called The Scoop. I have been writing since the age of 13. I published my first book at 25 and four came after.
I have two degrees, one in Media Arts and another in Broadcast Journalism. I was born in Detroit, Michigan. But now I reside in California. I love to entertain and inspire people to do great things.
What Inspires You Every day? : My daughter inspires me. The fact that I want to be able to provide her with the best life possible. Plus knowing that I’m not where I want to be yet. I’m always striving for more.
What is some words of wisdom you live by?: Don’t think just do. Meaning, stop overthinking it. So many times we doubt our abilities to take on tasks that will better our lives because we let self-doubt get in the way. Then we regret what we didn’t do. So, just do whatever it is you want to do. Be hopeful. Yet smart and practical.
What is your ultimate goal in life? : My ultimate goal in life is to be happy. No. Honestly, so many people are not happy. Of course, I want success and achievements. But all of that means nothing without happiness.
How have you been during the pandemic and how has it affected you? : It’s made me more cautious. Yet, I’ve been resourceful. I’ve found other alternatives to make money. I’ve been staying safe and listening to protocols. But I’ve certainly seen how this has taken over people whether for the good or the bad.
What is a message you would like to give others? : Whatever it is you want to do. Go ahead and do it. Stop waiting for people to save you. Support you. Invest in you. Do it yourself! You only live once! YOLO! So do what makes you happy. Go after your goals, dreams, and ambitions. Be smart about it. But go after it. Live with no regrets.
