Meet Breana Cotton | Author & Publisher
What’s a quote that fuels your passion?
A quote that fuels my passion is, Philipians 4:13. It is a scripture I've loved and lived by since I was a little girl. I truly believe that I can do anything I set my mind to with guidance from God.
Breana, your Humble Takeover is your story. Tell the family where you started and how you got to where you are today.
“Growing up as a teenager I felt like everyone around me was toxic, which they were. I would become very depressed as a kid and I felt like no one understood me or had open ears to how I felt. Now as an adult I'm learning to forgive and understand that the way people treat you is a reflection of themselves and what they are dealing with internally, such as childhood trauma & etc. I then began to write all of my problems down in a journal because I needed an outlet to get all of my anger out. As I wrote in my journal more and more I was blessed with the idea of publishing my own personal book. I contacted someone who was also published in the local area for help on how to become self published and the response I received was not the response I expected. It was no response at all, just a read message. I didn't take it personally, I just made it my business to one day have an entire empire that pushes out authors, no matter the age, that needs the guidance in publishing and getting their story out to others just like I did.”
Which chapter in your story inspired your current venture?
“My goal during my current venture is to help writers, who struggle with organizing their work, print and publish their writings into book form.”
What keeps you Humble through your success and failure in Life?
“What keeps me humble through my success and failures in life is understanding that everything in life happens for a reason. Not only looking at a loss as a huge “L” but also treating it as a win because there is a lesson in that failure that will equip me to win next time. I've also learned to be very humble when I do receive those wins because it can all leave at any moment.”
What advice would you offer our family who is writing their own story?
“A strong piece of advice I would offer is to always show up as your authentic self. I'm only saying this because this is something I had to learn and understand for myself. The life that is set out for you is already done, you just have to walk into it.”
We’d love to hear more stories, please suggest 5 other persons writing their own story and Conquering the World.
