ANDRIA SCHULTZ

 

I am an Entrepreneur & Film Producer with a passion for teaching Millennial’s how to Network Smart in the Entertainment Industry by interviewing Executives, Celebrities, and Professionals Behind the Scenes. My goal is to inspire people of all ages to follow their dreams and not be afraid of rejection.  

Who/What inspires you?

Honestly? I love watching the process of someone grow that I’ve helped influence. I get my energy from people’s positive energy, passion, and being surrounded by like-minded individuals. I want people to feel like they can go after their dreams no matter what struggle they may endure achieving it. There are no limits to dreaming, creating, and pursuing what your heart desires.

How has being an entrepreneur affected your life? How did it change the way you think about life?

Where to begin…I LOVE being an Entrepreneur! It has allowed me to express myself freely. I wake up every morning excited to see what is going to happen next, even when I am faced with a challenge. Challenges broaden my mind and I have zero fear of them. I believe that being an Entrepreneur has taught me to appreciate the little things in life a lot more because I have to work hard at what I want and when I achieve what I set out to do…it’s that much more rewarding. Let’s be real here! How many of us have felt good after getting something so easy? We take it for granted. It’s those moments where I am grateful to be surrounded by people that believe in the message I want to spread.  

Do you have hobbies? What are they? Is it important to take “time off” and focus on other things such as friends, family, hobbies, etc.?

Yes…YES…yes, taking time off is essential! You have to refocus and get back into alignment with yourself to make the right decisions. My hobbies include reading, dancing, working out and yoga. Each of these activities help me get energized for my long days. I also make it a habit to talk to a few family members & friends every day and talk about my day.  It helps me remember what is important in life. The business is important, but so is your mental health. Sometimes we loose sight of ourselves amidst the chaos of life, so having that support system is essential.

What is failure?

Failure does not exist. Failure is when you allow your mind to believe that you aren’t good enough or cannot achieve something. There are NO LIMITS, you are the only person who limits yourself.

What does it mean to be a Passionista?

To me, being a Passionista means being confident and never giving up. A Passionista is a dreamer, but also a DOER. We are determined and strong-willed women who will fight for our dreams and make them a reality.
