We had the good fortune of connecting with Cache Castelow and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Cache, how do you define success?
Everyone defines success differently right? For myself, I define success as being present in your accomplishments. Understanding there’s life outside of just being, “content”. I like to look back to see how far I’ve come in my professional, personal and private life, the overshadow of goals I’ve reached and successfully feeding my mind, body, spirit and soul. I also define success as learning the essence of a, “balance-lifestyle” while also striving for the next. In one scale, I can define success by completing all my weekly goals at the end of the week and on another scale I can find success by successfully creating a business development with an outside vendor. I have always liked the idea of being utterly successful. I got my first job at 14 years old, and from there I just loved the idea of moving up in the corporate ladder and creating my own.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
Absolutely! “GoalGetIt: Vision Workshops” is a non-profit founded in 2018, a creative space for women and children to set goals. receive inspiration and network with other Goal-Getters. So far we’ve had over 5 successful workshops specifically, Vision Board Workshops. I’m in the process of added additional workshops to the roster which I am so excited about! This workshop will involve the importance of gratitude, the workshop will be titled, “G-for Gratitude” I’ve been wanting to do this workshop for a while, I’m still in the lab cooking up so finish touches. I can’t wait until I start rolling out this new workshop! Honestly, I got here with faith, oh and I have a long way to go. My goal is to make, “GoalGetIt: Vision Workshops” a household name, I would love to do more in the community, partner with other educational and service base non-profits. The main goal here is to enrich the community, I love empowering the next woman and kid to strive for their next in life, and to goal get their blessings! Other than faith, I would have to say having ambition. I’m an ambitious woman, I like to get things done and execute my vision. I whole heartedly know my service and facilitating my workshops inspire others, encouraging the attendees to accomplish their goals or even just to get their wheels spinning directing their minds in the right direction. I believe we all need that, “Amen corner” or the homegirl to cheer you on, and I love being that for others through my workshops. One of the biggest lessons, I learned along the way is to take in my, “now” so when I get to my “next”, I’ll not only be prepared but I’ll fully feel deserving and appreciative because ultimately I know how far I’ve came.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Yasss! I actually do have a cousin of mine that comes to visit me from Detroit, MI often, she’s my travel buddy. I know covid-19 dismissed most of our plans but for the most part, her and I are both adventurous every time we travel. So she’s in town and the first place we have to stop will be breakfast at: The Breakfast Club (CityScape) after it may be time for an intense well needed facial at: Dee’s Gifted Hands Spa Boutique (ask for Daija) after we are going to want to do some type of outdoor activity: Horseback riding (Ponderosa Stables Inc) later that evening we are going to want some sushi and drinks at: Kabuki (westgate)
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 shout out my Pastor Charity Craig, her ministry “Turn 180 Church” truly helps build me spiritually. I consider her a, “Purpose Partner”. I appreciate the time, treasure, and talent she devotes to God and her congregation. Particularly, she’s encourages me to take a, “Leap Of Faith”. She’s appreciated!
