Today we’d like to introduce you to Kyra Mitchell Lewis.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Kyra. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I have more than 20+ years of experience in corporate America in the marketing industry. I love the industry and what I do every day, but I’ve always been very entrepreneurial and have dreamed of building something of my own that allows me to give back to others. Over the past 8+ years of my career, I’d found myself overwhelmed and imbalanced. In 2019, I started a personal journey of therapy and really being intentional in my journey to live a more balanced life. As I started to make changes in my life, I realized how many other women were struggling with the same issues I was and when I would talk about my journey, many women would share how they wanted to also find better balance, but with the daily pressures of personal and professional life, many didn’t feel like they had the time to prioritize themselves and take that first step in their journey. Starting Glow Up, Gyrl is my way to connect with women and connect women to each other and resources that allow them a safe space to grow, evolve and obtain that balance and purposeful living we all desire.
Has it been a smooth road?
Not at all! It’s extremely hard to create a successful business in today’s society. Everyone is a creator. Everyone is an influencer. People have short attention spans and we live in a digital world where people are often looking for instant gratification. I launched this business in March right at the begining of the Coronavirus pandemic I’ve had to be agile and pivot quickly from my original launch plans. I went from planning a physical on-site event to launching a podcast and blog, which still allows me the space and opportunity to make those connections with women and continue to build the Glow Up, Gyrl community. Of course, it isn’t an ideal situation, but I believe everything happens for a reason and I just want to be an available resource for women to achieve and/or maintain balance and purposeful living even during these uncertain times.
We’d love to hear more about Glow Up, Gyrl.
Glow Up, Gyrl is a community for women on a mission to live a balanced and purpose-filled life. We create curated content and events that provide a safe space for women to gather, learn and share as they work towards becoming their BEST self and truly GLOWING UP! I’m proud to be able to create a community for women to truly be able to speak freely about how they are feeling about various events in their lives. We connect women to not only professionals but to other women who have experienced or are experiencing the same thing. I also offer brand and marketing services to women entrepreneurs including brand development, website development and marketing strategy.
Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
I love that there are so many creative and entrepreneurial people here in this city. I think people here aren’t afraid to take risks and pursue their dreams. I also believe people in Atlanta fail fast and do not quit. The people, culture and opportunities are endless here. I am very blessed to call Atlanta home.
