Today we’d like to introduce you to Ayanna Q Maston.

It’s an honor to speak with you today. Why don’t you give us some details about you and your story. How did you get to where you are today?

My vision came to me almost 10 years ago, I lost my mom to Pancreatic Cancer in 2011. I knew I needed to do more and to be involved in something meaningful to honor and remember her. I opened up a fashion boutique in her honor and after about 4 years, I decided to let it go. Even though I was satisfied in my career I felt the need to do more, this time it was more focus on helping people. I have always been interested in the holistic approach to healing. It became my focus, the meaning of whole body health. I want to help people take a natural approach to healing, whether it’s losing weight, relief from pain, looking and feeling better inside and out, an alternative approach to wellness.

That’s how DQ Holistic Health & Wellness was born! We offer services and products to help men and women achieve full body wellness.

I’m sure your success has not come easily. What challenges have you had to overcome along the way?

The challenges for me have been just the growing pains in starting a small business. Having people support your dream is a challenge in itself. I am a perfectionist and there is so much I want to do. I see it and go after it. Everything I have accomplished thus far has been because of God’s grace and his mercy. I am blessed to have a supportive husband, father and children who allow me to just be me.

Let’s talk about the work you do. What do you specialize in and why should someone work with you over the competition?

I am a certified weight loss coach and yoni steam practitioner. I have helped men and women achieve their goals to whole body health and maintain a healthy lifestyle. I am quickly establishing myself as a reliable and knowledge coach locally and nationwide with numerous success stories from clients.

What’s your best piece of advice for readers who desire to find success in their life?

Stay consistent, don’t let people talk you out of your dreams. Have faith and stay in prayer! Surround yourself with people who know more than you and are willing to mentor you and help you achieve your goals. Stay true to your purpose and believe that what God has given you is the blessings he has planned for you, and most importantly help others.

Speaking of success, what does the word mean to you?

Success means living life to the fullest with no regrets. A state of happiness in all things and fearless for what’s to come.

What’s next for you?

I will continue to grow, continue to do more and let nothing take away my peace or joy. I am not done, there is so much I want to learn, I am just getting started!
