Member Spotlight: Terrence Hickman
“Quality time to me is most important. It helps your child learn who you are and also gives you time to learn who they are.”
What do you do and what led you to this career?
Currently work in Beverly Hills in fashion. Prior to relocating to California, I studied Retailing at Michigan State University. This field is ideal for me because I’ve always been into fashion and good with people. This field was a no brainer for me.
What is the name and age of your kids?
Dakota Joyce age 6 and Liberty Cruz age 3.
What is the most rewarding aspect of being a father?
The most rewarding to me are the simple things. Coming home from work and both my little girls running and screaming “daddy’s home”, gets me every time.
And what is the most challenging?
The most challenging is raising my children away from family. My family is from Michigan and my wife’s family is back in D.C. I think having our parents and family closer would make things a little easier.
What has been your greatest career achievement thus far?
Building a strong client base in Beverly Hills and having loyal clients that have become more like family.
What is your best advice for someone new to your industry?
To always be yourself and genuine. Clients can always tell when you’re being robotic and not real!
What is your best advice for a new dad?
Take it one day at a time and spend as much time as possible with your child. Quality time to me is most important. It helps your child learn who you are and also gives you time to learn who they are.
What is your current favorite activity with your kids
You can always find us hanging out at Century City Mall! If we aren’t in the kids play area or the Disney Store, find us at Tocaya Organica or Smitten having ice cream!
