Black Blogger Month: Yoli’s Green Living, The Queen of Green

With a mission to teach people how to live green without spending it, Yoli Ouiya puts the consciousness in health conscious

Networking in the digital space is…

Extremely important. You are whom you associate with.

The biggest lesson I learned about branding in the digital space was…

Organic growth leads to sustainable rewards.

I measure success by…

The amount of time I spend everyday doing exactly what I want to do moment to moment.

None of my success would be possible if not for…

Committing to being honest with myself and surrounding myself with people who are honest with me. I’m an artist; I have to work from inspiration.

My passion for healthy living comes from…

My grandparents, who passed away way too early from preventable conditions and diseases. I want to have healthy children and be a healthy grandparent, if the opportunity presents itself.

The biggest misconception about being green is…

That it isn’t worth the initial investment in time and expense.

The secret to making a green lifestyle easy is…

Remembering the benefits of being careful and the repercussions of being careless. Don’t be afraid to embrace seemingly small changes—going for a walk, not overeating and getting proper rest—all have long-term benefits.

In business you should never be afraid to…

Ask for what I’m worth.

If you weren’t in the digital space today I’d probably be…

Figuring out how to get into the digital space, which I love. I still review technology [trends] and design my own materials. I’ve also designed for Erykah Badu, Wu Tang, and other companies.

Next on the horizon for me is…

Finishing a series of green living books with Karama Horne of Savvy Brown Blog, as well as producing green events and expanding my podcast series.

My advice for anyone who wants to follow in my footsteps is…

Find your passion, surround yourself with honest people who will challenge your authenticity and put yourself into the world. The Internet is global. The possibilities are endless.
