An Interview with Ann Marie Bryan, Founder & CEO, Victorious By Design
I’m sure your success has not come easily. What challenges have you had to overcome along the way?
My business is a natural flow for me because I get to impart while helping others fulfill their goals. There have been many moments of happiness, excitement, and peace. However, there have been growing pains between milestones. Nevertheless, as challenges arise, I take full responsibility and stay on course. It has been an interesting journey to get where I am today. A journey, mostly, of learning to follow the footprints that God has laid out for me, of letting go of fear and wanting affirmation from others, and above all, learning to be my authentic self and to love me the good, the bad, the quirks, and all. Today, I have not arrived, but I am working the gifts that God has deposited in me and I am abiding in Him.
After getting out of my own way, I worked hard to achieve my goals and began reaping the rewards of a profitable business, and the joys of walking in purpose. I absolutely love walking in purpose and helping others connect with their purpose. Purpose brings significance, value, and stability to my life. As I walk in purpose, I recognized that I am at my best when I am helping to transform lives. It is a natural calling to encourage others to achieve personal excellence so they can live life to the fullest. Of course, there are many positives to walking in my purpose. The amazing thing is that God continues to multiply what I have surrendered to Him.
