It's a lifestyle
You have one life to live. So, you might as well live it being purposely yourself. Life will challenge your view on how you see you. It will make you believe that you aren’t good enough and that you should conform to something that isn’t you. Don’t believe it. You can overcome those views by getting to know yourself. Know that it isn’t an overnight process, but a life long journey. Embrace who you are by being Purposely You! 💫
Meet The Founder 👋🏽
Get to know the Founder & CEO of Purposely You, Racquel John.
Hey everyone, Thank you so much for visiting!
My name is Racquel John, the Founder & CEO of Purposely You. I’m a painter, actor, and writer. Growing up, I was a pretty creative kid. Every weekend my brothers and I would create shows and perform then for our parents whether we were reenacting a scene from our favorite movie or creating something from scratch. It was never a dull moment in our house. It’s funny. I used to say that acting came out of nowhere for me, but in reality, the interest was there since I was young.
However, I never imagined that I would develop a deep passion for writing. I struggled academically in school, so that discouraged me in many ways. But, I did have a passion for helping and teaching people. When I was a kid, I would set up mock classrooms and pretend to be teaching my baby brothers something. Once again, the pathways of our passions and careers can be revealed by our childhood. Writing for Purposely You has become a significant part of my life’s work. It is my life’s work. My purpose led me to write, and writing led me to my purpose, which was the birth of Purposely You. I continue to follow the steps of where my purpose takes me, and I hope to help you do the same. 😁

We are dedicated to helping women get to know themselves. With knowing yourself, you will have the foundation you need to be Purposely You.
Purposely You was founded and created back in 2016, while the founder, Racquel John, was searching for what she stood for. Before that discovery, she was writing on her fashion blog but later realized that something was missing. Conversing with family and friends about self-awareness and life, somewhere within the conversations, she found herself talking about how people should be authentic to themselves. But the only way to be true to yourself is through knowing your purpose.
To build a new perspective in women so they know that they can be purposely themselves, and never have to compromise to be where they want to be.
