We had the good fortune of connecting with Maria Cruz Watkins Bizzell and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Maria, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
The thought process behind Tiny Intentions came from my own destruction. Out of my own chaos came my creation. In the midst of my pain and turmoil I was able to find ways to transmute that hurt energy into something healing and beautiful. It allowed me to create a world of possibilities for others to heal along with me. A tiny thought became the force for what will be my biggest intention for humanity, which is to heal it.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I am working towards healing a world while healing my own. The only way to achieve collective healing is by doing the work on our selves. It’ starts with our tiny intentions every single day until it becomes something bigger than we could’ve possibly imagined. My creation brings abundance of love, peace, success and all that belongs to those who are ready to receive. I am set apart because there is only one of ME.

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.
With my love for my creating comes my love for food. One of my favorite place in town is Stone Bowl House located just out of the city. If you are looking for an authentic Korean comfort meal this is the place to receive it. After dinner we would definitely hit up tongue and groove for some Salsa and drinks. This place never fails to entertain me especially on Latin night, which is every Wednesday (FYI). Following days we would visit many natural trails over at Stone Mountain and Arabia Mountain. Georgia is full of adventures and there’s just so many wonderful spots to even name.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I am grateful for everyone who has believed in me throughout the process of my growth. Einstein said thank you 100 times a day and that is something worth living up to.
