Meet marketer/networker Calicia Holmes
Updated: May 12
Tell us any and everything that you want us to know about you as a person (personality, fun facts, upbringing, etc.)?
My name is Calicia. I am a 34 year old marketing strategist from Fayette, MS. I grew up in a very small community off the Natchez Trace called Cannonsburg. I was raised in a very unique household. My mom was a Jehovah's Witness and I too practiced for most of my life. My dad was a non believer but has since converted to the organization. I graduated high school a year early and attended the best HBCU in the world, Alcorn State University. Where I received my associates and bachelors degree in nursing. Shortly after starting college I became a mother and a wife by age 18. My marriage lasted about 8 years. It became very toxic and my kid's dad and I realized that we were not meant to be together and eventually we went our separate ways.
I have three phenomenal kids of my own (two boys and one super awesome daughter). I am currently dating the most amazing man in the world and he is the source of 99% of my motivation and drive to be great.
What Makes You Unique?
My ability to see the good in just about any situation has to be a super power. I am always trying to make right the wrongs and build up those in need.
What is your definition of confidence? Would you consider yourself confident? Tell us why.
My definition of confidence is simply not being afraid to walk in your destiny and live your truth. I do think that I am confident because I dance to the beat of my own drum. No ones opinion effects how I choose to live my everyday life.
Do you remember a time when you weren't confident? If yes, share with us an experience and how you felt doing that experience.
During the transition of my marriage and many days still I feel very discouraged because i occasionally lack the drive to push myself where I need to be. Im not confident in appearance a lot of the times I see me and I see basic average and that can sometimes damp my spirit as well.
What Is Your Brand All About?
My brand is effective marketing and networking. It was birth from a need to create an avenue and place for small businesses to reach out for tips and tools on how to pivot their businesses. Since starting it has be rebranded and is still growing . The ultimate goal of he brand is to just be a gateway to success for those who choose to allow my partner and me to help.
What makes you and your brand a great match? What makes you stand out?
My genuineness is what drives people to me. Money is always beneficial when running a business and as long as you have the personality to sell yourself. The money will never be an issue.
What's the biggest lesson that you've learned from having your brand?
The biggest lesson I have learned is that there is always room for your purpose. No matter how many people are doing what you do it doesn't mean that you can't succeed. Every brand and experience is different.
What can we look forward to seeing in the future dealing with your brand?
You can look forward to collaborations with brand like Hello Black Man and hopefully seeing a global expansion.
How do you stay motivated?
I stay motivated through adjustments and rest. It is imperative to be adaptable.
Name three things you can’t live without.
My Man, my man, my man
What words of advice would you give to our audience concerning staying positive in today's times?
You choose your destiny. You choose your attitude. If you embark upon each race with a positive outlook, you'll cross a positive finish line.
What's the hardest decision you ever had to make?
I had to decide to choose peace. It can be hard to think of self in a selfish world but without being whole you cant effectively serve others. So i take time out to find me and believe that i can be anything.
