We had the good fortune of connecting with Kia Shuler and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Kia, as a parent, what do you feel is the most meaningful thing you’ve done for them?
the most important thing I’ve done as a parent in terms of the impact on my child is I’ve shown her great work ethics. My daughter has always seen me work and has always heard me be very verbal about not wanting to work for someone else for the entirety of my life. I’ve allowed my daughter to be extremely hands on in every process of me becoming an entrepreneur and building my brand. I want her to see that working for someone else’s dream is a full time job but working on your own dreams is a lifestyle. I work from the time I wake up until I go to sleep everyday. I rarely have down time because there is always something I can be doing to expand my brands. There is always something new I can be learning. Everything I learn I want to be able to pass down to her. She sees the hours I put in and she’ll tell me “Momma I’m so proud of you ! I’m so happy that you’re doing what you love and you’re working for yourself “ and that alone pushes me to never want to stop because I know she’s watching me and I know if she sees me get it out the mud and make lemonade outta lemons her mindset will be different. Her work ethics will be impeccable and excuses will be non existent. Everything I do my daughter is in mind and I want to instill in her that she can do whatever it is she is passionate about in life as long as she is a persistent success will follow.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
What sets me apart from others is my message. One of my slogans is “We have merchandise for sale but the message is free”. I have a fitness brand as well as a streetwear brand and both I just want to instill in people that anything is possible. With persistence comes success! The road to success is a bumpy one often a lonely one as well but God never puts on us more than we can bear and people need to take those words to heart. My strength comes solely from my faith in God. I truly believe if I’m doing what I need to do on my end that he will never let me fall and in those times he has it was only so I could learn and get up stronger. God doesn’t answer prayers he matches energy! In times when I’m not doing right by myself or others he’s humbled me and I had to go through a lot of pain ,depression and misery in those times. In times when I’m locked in and I’m moving accordingly he’s blessed me beyond my wildest imagination. My street wear brand is called “NOFEATUREZ” and my objective is to spread love & self empowerment to remind people that they are Godly! That they have the power within themselves to be and achieve whatever is desired because there are no limitations to what we can achieve. The only limitations are those we put on yourself. I want to remind people that failure is only a reality once you’ve accepted it. We are here for a reason ! We all have a purpose! If you’re waiting for the “perfect time” , that time might outweigh you. The perfect time is now to show up for yourself ! You don’t need NO FEATUREZ! You just have to Tap into the God In You and your possibilities for success will be endless because you were created In the imagine of God, so put some respect on ya GodBody. That’s what I would want the world to know my brand for.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I enjoy the energy of my friends so I always would choose to be inside over going out. Good food , good drinks and great vibes

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I would like to shoutout God first and foremost because without his grace and forgiveness I wouldn’t be here. I want to thank my Mother and Daughter who have always been my biggest support system. I want to thank my friends for always supporting any dream I’ve ever had. I want to thank friends like Diasha Saunders & D Weathers for always pushing me outside of my comfort zone and allowing me to see their work ethics. I want to thank the people who have been mentoring me who I’ve never met but play a huge role in my growth. Les Brown, David Shans, Donni Wiggins, The Find Guru, Napoleon Hill for his life changing literature Think and Grow Rich. To name a few
