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

Hi Miriam, can you share a quote or affirmation with us?
My personal favorite affirmation is I choose Joy. It is extremely important to me because life will always present challenges and obstacles however our success is determined by our attitude in these moments and our outlook. If we make the choice to find the good and not let problems break us we can and will succeed. I choose joy!

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I absolutely love seeing children excited and intrigued especially when it comes to learning and self acceptance. I am most proud that my children’s book ABC I Love Me & coloring book bring smiles to the faces of children all over the world. Black and brown children deserve to see main charecters that look like them in the books that they read.

My dedication and work ethic as a self published Author is what makes my brand unique. Although I am considered an Indie Author I am blessed with tremendous success. I am grateful to everyone who has purchased my books and supported my journey. Although being an entrepreneur is challenging and requires a lot of intrinsic motivation, resourcefulness and perseverance in order to be succeed I encourage anyone reading this who wants to be an entrepreneur to take the leap of faith and get started. There is no time like the present.

I want the world to know that Miriam Muhammad CEO of ABC I Love Me LLC is sincere and passionate about her mission to help instill self love and an appreciation for books in black and brown children across the globe. Miriam Muhammad chooses joy and encourages others to do the same.

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.
If my girls are coming to town we are going to brunch at Le Petit Marche, then walk it off on the belt line while enjoying the murals and taking a ton of selfies along the way then off to get pampered at Celestial Spa on cascade rd and we would end the night with elegant carribien cuisine at Negril ATL. The rest of their visit would include visits to peidmont park, the GA aquarium to name a few.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I want to dedicate this shout out to my mother Sharrieffah Muhammad who passed away in September of 2020. She is my motivation and inspiration. Although she is physically absent I carry her positive energy, wisdom, Strength and humor with me daily. I would also like to dedicate this to my family and friends who have not only been vital to my success in business but in every aspect of my life. It truly takes a village and I unashamedly celebrate mine. I am truly grateful for my team.
