MaKeia Warren | Owner, CEO,

When I think of a quote that holds a deep-rooted meaning to me, I instantly am reminded of “You Got This!” It was something my beloved sister, MonSheldra, who passed away from Lupus in 2016, once told me as tears ran down her face, and she pleaded with me to keep going when I first started WarHaus, LLC.

My favorite quote that I have always lived by is actually a quote from Nelly 1st studio album “Country Grammar”. Never let ‘Em See you Sweat. When I was younger my older brother use to tell me this as a defense mechanism while I was in school and if I was to be made fun of or get into a lot altercation. But ironically, it helped in my adulthood too. The worse thing you can do is allow yourself to be seen bothered by those trying to tear you down. Society and especially social media only lives and feed off of negativity. If you give them that or feed into it, than you are only allowing them to win. It’s helped me through so much and has kept a lot of drama out from my life and as I build my brand and my show, it has help me take criticism and reapply it in a positive way to move me up to become stronger mentally. Which helps my brand grow and expand to hopefully becoming a household name. Read more>>
