We had the good fortune of connecting with Cachia Lewis and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Cachia, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?

The thought process behind my brand came to me one night as I lay in silence listening to my inner voice and Transparency Lifestyle is what was created. I was already speaking and writing about my life experiences and how they impacted my life with God as my center on my social media pages so the transition was not difficult. The purpose behind my brand is to not only be transparent so that I can learn about myself and become a better me but also to show others how to become transparent in their life for the main goal of becoming free by healing the trauma that is created by circumstances. As I began to look into the best way to be transparent about my life I researched blogging and was drawn to capturing my experience in one place. This gives me the ability to be able to reach a broader dynamic of people and to express myself in a way that allows me to become free in areas of my life and eventually fulfill why I was created!

What should our readers know about your business?
My brand was created out of a need for me to be transparent with myself. Once I became transparent about the circumstances that surrounded me then my life started to change. I help people by being transparent about my journey to impact others on their journey. I have received appreciation and great feedback on how my blog and speaking events have helped others to become transparent and touch on issues that are affecting their life. What sets my brand apart from others is that I am a good listener and also provide a seasoned perspective on life and how to overcome issues. I am excited about the new initiatives in my business such as upcoming interviews with others about transparency in their life and business as well as transparency lifestyle products that will be focused on showing you how to be expressive, transparent, and focus on issues that may be hindering your life. The ups and downs of business can take a toll on you especially if you don’t have a foundation; what has kept me grounded is my faith, family, and support, even with all of that it was not easy and took a lot of perseverance and time. I’ve learned along the way not to rush the process as it relates to business because it is ever-changing. What I want the world to know about my brand is that it is life-changing and geared towards helping others in their self-growth.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
The places that I would take a visiting friend during a week-long trip would be exciting and breathtaking. The following week-long itinerary would include:

– Breakfast during the week would be at Snooze Eatery and Matt’s Big Breakfast where you can find fluffy pancakes and waffles flavored with the best topping with a side of completely browned hash browns
– Lunch during the week would be at AZ Veganos Tacos, Postino’s and The Bluewater Grill where the atmosphere is relaxed and the food is great
– Dinner during the week would be at Phoenix City Grill, Barrios Pizzeria and North Italia which offers amazing food and atmosphere.
– A Morning Hot Air Balloon ride over Phoenix that gives a spectacular view of the Sonoran Desert and includes a champagne breakfast while we float over the clouds take in the panoramic views.
– Apache Trail and Dolly Steamboat Tour through the Canyon Lake and then a tour on the Apache Trail through the Sonora Desert
– Sedona guided day trip to explore the famous Red Rocks, nearby towns, trails and attractions
– Sea Life Aquarium to immerse ourselves in the world of undersea creatures, fish, rays, sharks and more…

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I have worked with a lot of mentors that have helped me to build my brand to the point that it is now by providing me with tips, marketing ideas, and social media hacks. One person in particular who I can say was there for me in the beginning of this journey when I was just getting started and helped me to take my brand to the next level would be Que Johnson of 529 Management LLC.
