VEU Magazine had the opportunity to speak with William about his new book and his upcoming business ventures

What are some of keys to success that you used to come from the bottom to where you are now?

I had total  belief in myself and I knew that I was meant for something greater than my circumstances. It’s a feeling so deep within you and it drives you never to give up. I held on to that feeling no matter how hard things were at the time. I knew I had a message that could inspire people, transform my life and transform the lives of others.. I never lost sight of that. This is why I can honestly say I spoke my way to success.

Words of advice for anyone struggling right now, especially during these times now

No matter how hard things may seem, you must never give up. You have a gift within you that the world needs and it’s up to you to tap into that gift.. If you don’t know what that gift is use this time to focus on finding it. We all have something we do that is easy to us and extraordinary to everyone else. So, take this time to really look at yourself and your life. Determine what you want to accomplish and go after it. Never stop thinking or dreaming big.

You’re always working on a new project. What can we expect next from you ?

I’m working on several new major projects, but I am incredibly proud of my first book being released October 4th called “The Best Gifts Come From The Bottom” . It’s really special to me because I know it’s going to help educate, inspire, and empower people to transform their lives. It’s not just a story about how I spoke my way from homelessness to being the top motivational speaker in the world. They will learn the what and the why too. Also this book is not just for aspiring speakers or people looking for motivation. This book really has something for anybody that wants to tap into their full potential. This is why everyone needs to get a copy because i’ll be sharing some things in there that will help you take your life to the next level. Aside from that I have a clothing line, several motivational speaking albums in the works and I’m in talks for movie deals as well. There’s a lot going on over at Will Smiles LLC.

Deck is using all the available platforms for inspiring young women. She has overcome many challenges in her life like scoliosis and bullying. Deck is an inspiration for all young women. Aside from that, she just launched her own sneaker company, and is the first women athlete to achieve this feat.

Deck new sneaker company is TRONUS and it has already received an amazing response. WFLA has done years of planning for this moment. Santia has already represented many shoe brands in the past. She has been the brand ambassador of various amazing shoe brands. Santia has finally achieved her goal of owning a sneaker company. Her team has brought on Jamine Sills. Jamine Sills is an amazing footwear designer and he is now working as a creative consultant for Santia Deck. The project got delayed as Santia wanted some non-negotiable things in her shoe. She wanted her shoes to be both fashion-forward and unique. The shoe should have a lightweight feel. She wanted a shoe that her fans can collect and show off. Deck wanted to make sure that her first attempt is successful. Thus, she and her team spent a lot of time learning about the shoe industry. Their project has evolved into a big shoe empire now.

Deck has been teasing TRONUS to her fans. She has already uploaded many original concepts on her social media accounts. The fans were flooding with her requests before even she launched the official website. Thus, her shoes were already hit. TRONUS is now offering free registration to their users.  You can get VIP access on TRONUS. This will ensure that you will get priority. Thus, you can buy the shoes before they are available on the general website. There are also many other perks that TRONUS is offering to the VIP members. TRONUS has gained 10 times the VIP members that they have first anticipated. They had a rough figure in their mind after they saw the response of fans on the Santia Instagram page. However, fans have completely blown away that figure. The team is worried now as they think that their entire first limited edition shoe will be sold to VIP members only. They won’t have enough shoes for the general public. The best thing about this is that they have still advertised their product. Thus, Deck is very happy with these initial numbers. Multiple resellers now want to sell these shoes. One reseller is even ready to buy the entire stock of TRONUS. However, Deck and her team have already declined this offer. They know the value of their brand.

There are many other business-savvy women like Rihanna and Serena Williams that have already collaborated with big brands. They are already working with big brands like Puma and Nike. Santia Deck is also trying to expand their brand in the same direction. They want to build a big brand. Deck also wants to compete with these big players.
