What do you do with your time?
I am a mom of an almost 3 year old and 16 month old. I run our family business Chris-earl.com, work from our home studio, and love every minute. Love spending time with my best friends and family and traveling, adventuring as often as possible.
North Hollywood, Los Angeles
Something you love about yourself?
I guess being a goof? I love to poke fun, play, and laugh as much as possible. I’m am pretty optimistic and can usually take a tough situation and turn it into something better.
Wisdom you would share with your younger self?
I used to hate that I was half African American and half Sicilian because I didn’t look like everyone else. I was very insecure, wasn’t sure where I fit and I always felt like an outsider. I now feel blessed to be different and don’t mind that I have kinky curly hair, love my skin color and thankful to be able to be a part of two totally different cultures. I finally found a way to feel confident and beautiful the way I am. I would tell my younger self to stop caring as much what everyone thought, and let go of those doubts and fears because they’re lies. To find confidence in who I really was inside, not what I looked like.
If you had a magical power, what would it be?
A value you live by?
Loving people well.
An embarrassing moment you’ve had?
When i realized grapes were raisins…a year ago.
A failed moment turned into a good thing?
I was pushed out of my job when I got pregnant with our first born and I had a really tough time with all of it. But, it allowed me to put all of my sales and business skills into my husband's furniture/ceramic business. It is now our sole source of income since I jumped 100% on board.
Where do you go to unplug and retreat?
Camping in the Sierras
Something you do for your mental health?
Get plenty of exercise, and talk to God on the reg.
