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

Hi Destiny, can you share the most important lesson you’ve learned over the course of your career?
The most important Lesson that my business has taught me is to always stay resilient no matter what. Early on in my career when things weren’t working out the way I had hoped I always had to stay resilient and keep pushing forward no matter what, I wasn’t always getting booked every weekend like I am today. I’ve had to stick with it through the good times and the bad and it has helped to have my husband side by side walking this path with me and always motivating me and our son to be our inspiration. If there is one thing I have learned in this business is that things are not always going to go your way but you have to be adaptable, Have open communication and be able to make tough decisions when needed.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
This journey definitely has not been easy but that’s what I love most about this journey. My business has taught me is to always stay resilient no matter what. Early on in my career when things weren’t working out the way I had hoped I always had to stay resilient and keep pushing forward no matter what, I wasn’t always getting booked every weekend like I am today. I’ve had to stick with it through the good times and the bad and it has helped to have my husband side by side walking this path with me and always motivating me and our son to be our inspiration. If there is one thing I have learned in this business is that things are not always going to go your way but you have to be adaptable, have open communication and be able to make tough decisions when needed. I want the world to know you can do anything you put your mind to! Just keep pushing forward and never give up

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
We would start with downtown LA Have lunch at Grand Central market Eggslut is one of my fave, go walk around LA live check out the staple center grab drinks and dinner at A rooftop. Would definitely wanna check out a dodger game and take a visit to Sofi stadium if possible to catch a Rams game. We definitely want to hit the beaches like Venice and Santa Monica Malibu is always great. Definitely would wanna take them down sunset and have lunch in West Hollywood. Girls night out at the Abbey would be great. Hiking in Griffith Park And taking a visit to the Hollywood sign. If possible catch a show at the Hollywood bowl. Take them to see the stars in Hollywood walk of fame. Would also need to take them to my favorite taco spot before they leave Los Angeles.

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 would love to dedicate it to my son Sebastian Nunez. I love you more then life itself and you motivate me and inspire me every single day to be a better mommy, person, business owner and more. I love you so much
