What Do You Love Most About Yourself?
With Naza Holliman
Introduce yourself! Who are you?
My name is Naza Holliman. I am an adventurer, a lover of art, music and travel. I deem myself an explorer, as I explore in my travels and right here at home. I am a marketing consultant and the owner of Holliman Marketing. I am the creator and writer of Sweet P and Sky, founder of LA Mommy Blogger Tribe and founder of SPS Playdates. I am a mother and a wife!
What is one thing no one really knows about you?
I usually know more than I let on.
What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?
In business, never lead with your feelings. If you cannot take your feelings out of what you are about to say or write, wait… cool down, compose your thoughts, back them up with facts, and get back to the conversation when ready. This advice came from my husband. It has helped me on more than one occasion.
What would you say to 16 year old you?
Do your homework!
What is your greatest fear?
Losing my family members.
What message do you think every woman should hear?
There is beauty in sisterhood. Cherish each other.
What is your favorite thing about where you live?
I love living in Los Angeles because there are endless options to explore. Museums, restaurants, outdoor adventures, concerts, foodie events, theatre. It’s difficult to be bored.
What do you love most about yourself?
My favorite thing about myself it that I am fluid. I go with the flow of life. I can hold my own in any situation, as well as make any situation fun. I look for the best in life and in the people around me, and no matter what happens, I enjoy life.
What is the biggest thing you’ve learned along the way?
Pick your battles.
Why do you love to travel?
My love for travel began with my parents love for travel. We have always traveled as a family unit, and we did it often. And in our travels, I have always looked around and wondered what it would be like to live in these new- to-me places. I have always tried to see life through the eyes of the people who live there, and it has continued to fascinate me throughout my life.
Now, as an adult, I love exploring new cities, and trying new foods. I love sharing the experiences with my husband, and family.
What motivates you most?
My family and the life I want us to continue to live. I want our children to experience the world, to explore and have amazing adventures, just like their parents do. I want them to have a hunger for learning, and new experiences. My motivation in everything that I do is to continue to give them a life that is fun filled, and to teach them to have a passion for life and everything it has to offer.
How do you manage your work-life balance?
It’s not easy. My husband and I are both business owners, and we have two small kids. His business requires him to be away from home more often, which makes it more difficult for me to run mine, while taking care of our boys. But, as cliché as it is, communication is what keeps the balance. We keep a clear and concise calendar of all of the family and work events, and when emergencies arise, we work it out quickly. But children and work, that’s not the only work/life balance to be kept. We also make sure to nourish our marriage and make time for just the two of us, as often as we can.
What is your favorite meal?
Sushi and burgers
If you weren’t doing the job you have now, what would you be doing?
I would be the host of a Travel Food show. Dream job alert!
What is something on your bucket list?
Traveling to the Maldives islands, India, Denmark and Louisiana… to name a few.
What are your biggest passions?
Experiencing as much of the world as I can in my lifetime.
