Live The Life You Want. You Are The Creator Of Your Destiny.
As a recording artist, model, entrepreneur, and champion of philanthropy Stefani has successfully taken control of her own career after a stint with a record label proved not to be as satisfying as one would think. Starting from scratch, Stefani has formed her own indie production company that includes: music, multi-media content (food web series, podcast), a family food brand, and initiative close to her heart….. motivational speaking series ‘Follow Your Feet”– through which Stefani encourages and motivates young people to follow their dreams.
Women Fitness is #CelebratingWomen this International Women’s Day, with a new story of an inspirational woman going out every day. Lets check out the next one of the influential and motivational recording artist Stefani Vara.
What according to you is the purpose of your life?
The purpose of my life is to use my story to inspire others to follow and create a destiny that they’re happy and passionate within their own realm.
What makes your life story so different?
I think my life story is so different because I don’t fit neatly into one particular box. I do it all. I have created a non-traditional fulfilling path by venturing into many creative avenues as an entrepreneur. I decided to step out on faith and leave a record label, resulting in me starting my own multi-media production company (music, podcast and web content). I also started a family business selling our family salsa, Comida Caliente Salsa.
I don’t give up! I live my life by saying “Let’s make it work “ instead of it won’t work.
What encouraged and motivated you to move along the road of philanthropy?
Dealing with the loss of my grandmother a few years ago, I was really sad and struggled with what I wanted to do with my career and life. I stepped away from music and wanted to find out what else motivated me. I decided that whatever I was going to do I needed to do it with purpose. A year later, I found that spark in my heart again and decided I would focus on my motivational speaking movement and help others find passion using “my voice”.
I recorded “I Do It All” and my latest single “Get Up” (which I consider anthems) because both songs speak about doing everything with a brave face and making things happen no matter the obstacles. Through this part of my life, I have found the true meaning of success which is finding purpose in your journey and being able to change a life through your story. It’s an amazing feeling.
Tell us about your motivational speaking series ‘Follow Your Feet”.
As a professional footwear model, I started the hashtag Follow My Feet to describe my travels music, modeling, and all my adventures as an entrepreneur on social media. From that, I decided to use “Follow My Feet’ as a platform to speak to young people, women, and people of color about creating their own paths in life, and finding their true passion. I give them my ten steps to creating a destiny they will love. Along with my new music, motivational speaking is very rewarding because I’m all about giving back, inspiring and hopefully changing someone’s life. My motto is “If I can reach and help at least one person then I have done my job”. I plan to continue speaking and creating ways to help others.
This International Women’s Day, what advice would you like to give to the women out there?
Create your own definition of success…You define it! Success will come in all sizes during your journey. Whether the success is small or large, remember to cherish and celebrate it all. Appreciate the struggles and learn from them. Be brave, strong, focused and always cherish those who believe in you no matter what.
