Episode 108: Keeping It Real About Where You Are On Your Journey w/ Keyaira Boone

Dream Driving is NOT easy, yet a lot of people lie about their struggles and the challenges they experience as they journey towards success. Today’s guest  freelance Keyaira Boone IS NOT one of those people. Keyaira opens up about her childhood and adolescents years growing up in New Jersey and how her desire to be open to new opportunities  – not only surprised her and encouraged her to keep going – but led her down a media path she hasn’t looked back from. Keyaira stresses why being true to YOUR JOURNEY and yourself is key to truly finding success in your life or career. She opens up about some of the ways creatives often suffer in silence (especially when you don’t have to). She also shares her favorite tips and strategies for showing your value and being true to who you are – two of the biggest challenges many of us face on the day-to-day. Join in on the conversation on social (@dreamsindrive) and use the hashtag #dreamsindrive!
