From the moment @angiepoketo and @tedpoketo told me @poketo needed to leave the arts district til today celebrating the opening of their new flagship inside @rowdtla, it’s a project that took over a year and a half to complete. I'm extremely happy for them because I saw how hard they worked to make this happen. While I'm not happy with the reason they had to leave arts district, I won't go into details on that. Just want to say, go support them for not getting knocked down and go support small businesses. (The @garmentory pop up there is pretty worthwhile too.) Congratulations, @poketo! #poketoprojectspace

So spicy. So good. Had late lunch with @angiepoketo yesterday after the workshop. I’m learning to celebrate more and keep the good things flowing.

I did my workshop today and I was so nervous. Part of it was my negative thoughts, thinking I wasn't worthy to be there and I’d let my friends, @angiepoketo and @tedpoketo, down. Another part of it was the high expectation I have for myself, worrying I’d screw something up. As I caught myself going deeper and deeper into negativity, I quickly switched my mindset to a better place - ”you are here to serve, you are here to help others and you are here to have fun.” Instantly, I felt so much lighter and I could breathe again. Often times, it's so easy to go into a job with the mindset of ”I don't know why they hire me”, ”what if I suck” or ”I'm just here for the paycheck.” By lifting myself up and align the self with a higher purpose, I was able to fully enjoy my time there. It’s amazing what positive mindset can do. // Truly grateful that @poketo continues to believe in me and allow me to share the things I learned with others. Thank you to those who came and spend the morning with me. 🙏🏼✨

For the longest time these are the things that I put myself down with - I don’t speak perfect English, I’m an introvert, I have low self esteem, I’m too sensitive, I’m not good with human relationships... These days, those are the things that I’m working on to unbelief and to rewrite my story. The past few days seeing the friends that made time to see me, to share their ups and downs and to share their knowledge, I realized I am a valuable person. I have things to say and to share too. Going into conversations knowing my self worth, knowing I have things to contribute and not be afraid to accept valuable advices, now there’s a healthy flow of give and receive going, which makes me so pumped to do bigger things.

If each step of the stairs represents one life experience, then I’ve walked many steps already. The things I learned I hope to share and help those whom are few steps behind me. Giving back with the way I know best - If you’re on @medium, I’m there sharing tips on being all of the things I am, mom/creative/entrepreneur/introvert. Go to link in my profile and follow me. Hoping to have more meaningful discussions that’ll lift all of us to higher places. // *Beautiful stairway @thenomadhotel.

Gloomy day makes me think of a thick slice of @valerieconfctns coffee crunch cake and a hot cup of coffee. And then go back to bed.

Mom, single mom, 9-5 job mom, business owner mom, remarried mom with an 18-month old. The journey through motherhood and entrepreneurship have taught me a lot about being patience while juggling daily life and building a business at the same time. I'm still learning as I go, but if you're thinking about starting your own business or feeling stuck or having frustration from having hands full and not being able to do what you want to do... Trust me, you’ll get there. The words that keep popping into my head these days are “one step at a time.” Each day, just plan one step and eventually you’ll reach your destination. #entrepreneur #momtrepreneur

Teaching an iphoneography workshop with @poketo this weekend that’s more about creating better visuals to tell your brand’s story than about few tips on photo apps. Many brands have great products/services to offer or messages to share, by elevating the quality of visuals they can get their messages across further and faster. .
The workshop will be held @thelinehotel this Saturday. We’ll start by discussing the benefit of marketing on Instagram, steps to build the right audience, the mystery of algorithm... Then we’ll take a short break to walk around the hotel to connect and to snap photos. The second half of the workshop will focus on photo processing and steps for each app I use.
It’ll be a full morning of information because I have so much to share, especially now with the new story feature and the often frustrating algorithm. Go to the link in my profile to reserve your seat today as the workshop is sold out every time and we have some extra spots open for just few more people.

Favorite sweatshirt. Sometimes I even forgot and wore it to friends gathering or to a shoot with clients. 😅 // For those whom asked before, I custom made it with @apolis’ sweatshirt.
Raising my self love and self worth - good plate of pasta (@_the_mighty_ has been my FAVE), iced cold soda and writing down short/long term goals, things that make me valuable, and the kind of home life + work life I want for direction. So many good positive things that I can go back to whenever my mind gets clouded by negative thoughts. 💪🏼✨
Sometime last year I had a strong feeling to expand my social circle and meet more women (aka. get out of my comfort zone). I love hearing people’s stories. Everyday I walk pass many women and many of them walk pass me, so many chances to connect and to lift each other up. Now that my little one is 18 months old, the signal of my brain is probably sending out clearer messages because women have been pouring into my life like 🌊💫. Yesterday, @toyotausa invited me and a small group of women for a 10-hour day of volunteering, listening to inspiring stories, learning the history of LA and discussing things that matter at a round table dinner all in the theme of womanhood. I arrived to the event with a wall around me (because that’s what shy introvert do) to hugging everyone and made new friends. After that, I crashed my friend @luciatran’s dinner with a group of amazing female photographers and spent 2 hours talking about life and work. // The world is different now. Women are not afraid to speak up and to lift each other up, I’m so grateful that I get to witness that in this lifetime. I’m even more grateful to know that my two daughters (and many others in the world) are heading toward a brighter future. #internationalwomensday

Hop over to watch the stories @ohjoyco because I’m sharing my creative process and the things that inspire me. // @luciatran captured my seriousness when we were visiting @ohjoy at her studio (I was reading a text from my husband trying to schedule our home/work life. 😅).

Taking a day off to go update my work wardrobe. Keep talking to myself in the head, “You have enough sweatshirts, let’s not get more.” // @goop
