We had the good fortune of connecting with Roneka Eccleston and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Roneka, what’s the most difficult decision you’ve ever had to make?
The Most Difficult Decision I Ever Had To Make Was When I Had To Learn How To Live Without My Grandma When She Passed Away. She Was My Everything We Had A Beautiful Bond She Died When I Was Eleven Years Old And It Was The Most Devastating Time Of My Life. Her Death Made Me Realize To Cherish The Most Valuable Things And Know When To Let Them Go Because Valuable Things And People Don’t Last Forever. Her Death Helped Me Built Up My Character, Strength I Know If I Can Get Through Her Death Day By Day I Can Get Through AnyThing That Try’s To Break Me.
I’m Mostly Excited About Doing Something I’ve Always Wanted To Do Since I Was A Kid I’ve Always Had An Luxurious Mindset From The Exotic Cars To The Upscale Condos & Homes & Mansions & Beautiful Yachts I’ve Always Knew I’ll Surround Myself Around Things I Loved As A Kid. I’m Also Excited About Networking And Meeting New People Hearing There Story And Being Motivated By Each And Every Advice They Give Me.
I Got To Where Im At Today By Not Giving Up On Those Slow Days When I Didn’t Receive No Bookings To Even When I Received Maybe 1-2 Bookings A Week And Staying Humble When I Received 10-15 Bookings A Week.I Looked Into Ways To Improve My Brand To Make It Better I Wrote Down Notes Of Business Strategies That I Didn’t Achieve And Made Each One A Task For Each Month. It Wasn’t Easy But It Motivated Me To Keep Going Keep Being Consistent And Keep Pushing Day In And Day Out.I Overcame My Challenges By Just Staying Focus And Being Patient I’ve Always Kept In Mind Everything I Do Its Bigger Than Me I Have A Niece / A Little Sister And Little Cousins I Want To Be A Motivation To And Show Them Hard-Work & Dedication Can Make Their Dreams Come True. I Know The Road To A Luxury Lifestyle Not Easy Its All About Game Planing And Sticking To The Game Plan.I Know The More Work I Put In It Will Lead To Progressing And Achieving My Goal.
I’ve Learned In Order To Be Successful And Have A Successful Business “I Have To Be An Student Before I Can Be An Teacher” I Learned To Listen Before Speaking I Learned Growth I Learned How To Transition From A Younger Girl Business Mindset Into A Women Business Mindset I’ve Learned How To Control My Anger And Be More Calmer And Become More Professional And Stay True To Me And What I Stand For.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I Would Definitely Go To Wynwood And Go To Brick House For A Nice Cool Vibes. Also A Night Club Called Take One That’s Located In The Biscayne/Liberty City Area For Some Good Music And A Nice Time . If She Would Like To Hear Caribbean Music And Eat Caribbean Food I’ll Definitely Take Her To Runway Or Dunkanoo They Both Are Located In The Wynwood Area As Well. It’s A lot Fun/Diverse Places Here.
