What’s your wave (hustle)?:
Event curator & fashion executive.
The first time I discovered my passion was......
The first time I discovered my passion was when I failed. Normally when I fail at something I figure it’s not for me, I lose interest, and I move on. But this time I was excited to learn more and try again.....my passion wouldn’t let me quit.
My biggest influence......
My biggest influence is my peers, I’m most inspired by what’s going on around me.
What/who inspires you to do what you do?
My two daughters inspire me to be creative, being an example of someone who does something they love for a living is a huge thing for me. Wanting them to see it first hand that you don’t have to hate your job.
Who do you hope to inspire?
Hopefully I inspire them but I also aim to inspire young creatives to be business minded and independent.
What are you creating right now?
Right now I’m using all of my business experience to build out my agency focusing on content curation and a few other secret projects.
What do you have coming up down the road?
Down the road I just want to create with friends. In today’s climate you can make money doing anything and being able to think big, take risks, and enjoy the process with my friends is all I could dream of.
Where can we find/see/learn more about your work?
You can follow me on Instagram @Rio_Hairston to be updated on all of my projects
What message do you want to share to inspire others?
Enjoy the journey.....we always look back to times when things were simple and pure in life and we will one day look back at where we are now. Enjoy now!
