Articles by Mari: Conquering Self-Doubt When Creating
“Soft hearts break easily, but their strength lies in choosing to love and love well.” – Mari

Mari, thank you for joining us today at VQS. What core values do you believe are necessary for success?
Knowing your purpose, doing your job with with intention and a lot of heart, remaining honest and genuine always, consistency, persistence, taking responsibility, showing up for yourself and others…. these are some super important ones that I believe are necessary for success.
Success can mean different things to different people, but for me the most valuable form of success is when I’ve practiced the values I’ve mentioned and as a result made lasting friendships or created deep connections with others through my craft, or find that I’ve impacted or influenced someone in a positive way. The ultimate goal is to leave a legacy, that you’ve been kind, had good work ethic and changed someone’s life even in a small way. It sounds dramatic, but that kind of success tops other forms of success like fame and money.
What future opportunities would you like to be involved with?
I’m really open to any opportunities that I feel are right and fitting. As of right now, I’m performing wherever I get the chance to. I’m also collaborating or just singing with other artists I admire and love.
