Please tell us how you reached this successful point in your career as a media professional.
Racquel: The road to success is never easy and it’s filled with failures, trials, and errors as well as lessons. It’s important for the individual and/or business to define first what success looks like for them as the definition is different for everyone. For me, my path to success has had many pivots but it ultimately made me become the woman I am today and influences how I serve humanity through my projects and businesses.
As a media professional, I had to invest in myself and invest in mentors and coaches that have shortcut my pathway to get me to where I am today in this space. I also pay homage to the women in media, especially minority woman who has opened the door for me to even be a part of this space. Women, no matter their race or background such as Barbara Walters, Oprah Winfrey, Tamron Hall, etc. I look forward to continued growth in the media space and hope to impact more businesses and lives. The Your Purpose and Business TV Show currently broadcasts every Saturday on MY TV -Connecticut and our success and mission are just beginning!

What do you like to do in your spare time?
Racquel: In my spare time, I love to relax and spend time with my family and friends. I love listening to music and exploring nature. These are the things that fuel me up and allow me to recover from working hard. This is my secret to maintaining resilience and creating harmony in my life.
Who are some people you are inspired by and why?
Racquel: First, I will say that I am inspired every day by my mother. She is a hard worker and has instilled a work ethic in me. I am inspired by how she has navigated challenges and pitfalls in her life and continues to show up as her best self. Outside of my family, I am inspired by Oprah Winfrey and how she has broken the proverbial “glass ceiling” and has paved the way and opened doors for Black females to enter media spaces. I am also inspired by Tamron Hall, how she has made pivots and risen up despite facing challenges and being pushed out of her job at a major network but has found a new space in media by having her own talk show that has won a daytime Emmy for her outstanding informative talk show in 2022. It shows her resilience and how anyone can bounce back from setbacks. There are many people in media and outside of media who continue to inspire me as I continue to learn from and invest in them and my education in this space.
What do you hope for the Your Purpose and Business legacy?
Racquel: That’s a great question. I hope that as we grow the show, I will be able to sustain this legacy by continuing to create a space and provide a platform for entrepreneurs to have an opportunity to showcase their services and products on TV. I hope that this TV show will continue to provide education to its audience and will assist and facilitate leveling the playing field for minority and underserved business owners and will continue to give them a chance to make changes in the marketplace and inspire the next generation and generations to come.
