Meal Prep Business Owner Prepares Plate of Food by Cleaning the Edge of the Plate

A 5 minute read.

It’s one thing to have chef-made meal prep delivered to your door. It’s another to also be radiating health and joy as you navigate the paths of fitness and entrepreneurship. My life embodies both.

Harvesting wisdom from those who’ve walked in our paths is essential for growth. Throughout life, we’ve had mentors, our favorite high school teachers, sports coaches, and senior colleagues. All who have lit the way, sharing knowledge and turning obstacles into stepping stones and complexities into clear skies.

That is my hope with starting this blog.

If you’re living in this wide-open world of fitness (physical or mental), starting or building a business, or all around just living ya best, dopest life, This blog is for YOU.

Let me share a bit of my back story and get you caught up.

My Journey to Meals of Dopeness (Spoiler: It hasn’t been simple)

Just over 10 years ago, I moved to Washington DC.

During this time, I learned the ins and outs of marketing and communication (my first, and last, official big girl job outta college). I was kicked to the curb 9 months in due to budget cuts. I was shook. But, little did I know, this would plant the seed for my first business that same weekend!

  • Ya girl was hustling. I went back to barbering, waitressed my way through the DC brunch and fine dining scene, was a host for a high-profile online magazine, and taught soka dance classes all around the country #whatdontshedo
  • I took a leap and pursued my passion for fitness. I became a certified personal trainer, and began putting the work in full-time at a gym. I was changing the lives and shifting the mindsets of DMV professionals.

  • A moment of clarity shattered my past life. I quit my job and launched my own fitness coaching business and meal prep service. Mind you, this was all while competing professionally and successfully in bodybuilding as a Bikini Competitor. 

Despite the trials and tribulations I faced, in 4 years, my meal prep service, Meals of Dopeness, became a 6-figure business.
