OLIVIA ANTHONY

TA: What’s your current hustle?

JA: My current hustle is House of Olivia Anthony. In essence its more like a piece of me, it’s like my baby. I birthed it and from that idea it has grown in to so much more then I ever thought it would be. It’s actually more like I'm hustling for HOA. 

TA: Describe the difference between your 9-5 and your 5-grind?

JA: Well currently I'm working for myself, id describe it more like a 24 hour business. There isn’t one hour where I'm not thinking, doing or talking about my brand so work never stops. That’s very different from working a 9 to 5 because you are working for someone else and making their dream come true. 

TA: Who gave you the most memorable career advice? 

JA: From the top of my head probably my Dad, he is always dropping gems on me. Probably that laziness will kill you and that in fact the hardest thing is getting up and getting what you want. 

TA: Has what you’re doing now been a life-long interest? 

JA: Well growing up my passion was Dance but Fashion was always in my life. It actually wasn't until during college when I went to LA for a summer that I thought, “this is what I want to do for the rest of my life.” 

TA: Did you ever think you wouldn't make it to this point in your career? What kept you going?

JA: Yes when I first moved to New York City I remember thinking how much longer can I take this? God brought me through and just knowing that if I can make it here I can make it anywhere. 

TA: If you could tell your younger self one thing about work ethic, what would it be?

JA: 

TA: What has been your favorite “project,” so far? 

JA: I feel like I have had many but probably my very first Project in college when I launched my website. I was really memorable to me and is still till this day my favorite because me and my friends did it all by ourselves, and it was the beginning of everything. 

TA: Who are your 3 “must-follows” on Instagram? 

JA: I-d magazine, my sister and probably The Shade Room ....so sad lol 

TA: How would your inner circle describe your hustle?

JA: Very Creative, Filled with Originality, outside the box go getters whom are extremely supportive. 

 Closing statements...

JA: LIV UR Life !! Stay in your lane, keep going and you’ll definitely get to the finish line. whatever is for you is for you no matter what !!
