“I used to think procrastinating was a good thing. But when I was pregnant with my third child, I was at a photo shoot when the contractions started. I kept working, I said, just one more photo and then I’ll go.

Now I don’t procrastinate.” – Rakia Reynolds is the founder and CEO of SkaiBlueMedia and the mother of three children.
