Long story short, Atiyah McDaniels is a #BOSSQUEEN under the age of 30!

With all of these accolades, you would think that Atiyah was a very extroverted person, when in all actuality she states, "I am very shy...but the thing about me is that I push myself to do things I have never done or would never do." That statement made me realize how much her and I are alike because although I am an ambivert, I also like to challenge myself to accomplish new goals and sometimes, I surprise myself and surpass those goals; nonetheless, like any other story of success, comes the back story of challenges.
This all started when Atiyah dropped out of college in 2016, deciding to bet on herself, and became a full-time entrepreneur after she launched Intense Beauté by MtrlGirl®. In just one short year, she grew the small, home-based business into a 6-
figure company with customers worldwide! Now, Atiyah being a proactive thinker, assumed that many people, specifically women, would become curious about how she started a hair extension company at such a young age, but if you ask her, she will tell you that "It is easier than you think!"
She also anticipated that these same people would want to know what comes next after launching a company, how to make that business profitable, and most importantly, how to keep a successful, lucrative momentum going? Well, out of her proactive mindset birthed Atiyah the Author, who has now published 4 Books!! Her books and online course, A Boss Academy, is a testament of how Atiyah prides herself on not only being successful for herself, but is will to help others do the same! Because of this selfless act alone, I am sure God will see to it that all the blessings continue to flow through Atiyah, her family, her businesses, and brand overall.
Despite all of her success, Atiyah has pushed through some trials and tribulations while caring for her young daughter, Nahla. Those trials began to take a toll on her mental health, altered the thoughts she had about herself, and her self-esteem was extremely challenged during that time in her life. As a result of this, Atiyah began to lose the confidence she had gained while she created her businesses from scratch, and while writing her books designed to inspire & motivate other women to be their own boss too. She eventually mustered up the strength and self- confidence needed to push through those adversities, and after realizing her strength, she was inspired to love herself more. That courageous act continues to fuel the perseverance she exhibits that has, and continues to help her heal after pushing through what was meant to break her.
Atiyah is quiet yet her presence, confidence, and business savviness, is LOUD!
She is truly a force to be reckoned with, equipped with many personal & professional gems to share, and my hope is that these amazing tips assist you in becoming the BOSS you are destined to be.
