Dave Lukas Chats with Niajae Wallace
148: Don’t Dull Your Shine – How to Live a True Life of Abundance with Niajae Wallace
This week’s Misfit Entrepreneur is Niajae Wallace. Niajae has an amazing story that I don’t want to spoil for you. But, let’s just say she started out with nothing and by age 19 had started her first business and the success grew from there.
She had so much success that she was able to free herself to work when and how she wanted and now travels the world teaching people what it truly means to live an abundant life.
This is going to be an interesting and possibly controversial episode, because we are not only going to talk about how to create your own abundant life, but we are going to discuss some major topics on what truly holds people back, especially in inner city and underprivileged areas. Niajae and I both have strong feelings about how to best help these areas and they are built on principles tested throughout time. I knew when we connected on this level and were able to discuss these topics, I had to have her on the show and share her wisdom with you.
The Abundance Hack Podcast
Niajae was born in the Bronx to a single mom. Her dad didn’t know if she was his. As she says, she has the typical inner city single mom story where people expect her to have the stereotype of “daddy issues” and multiple kids by different fathers, government assistance, etc. But that is not the case. Niajae looked at her life and said, “This will not be my story…”
She buckled down and found a different mindset than those around her. She spent more time in the library while others were running the streets. She also found a mentor at SCORE which led to her starting her first business at 19. She learned a lot and 5 years later opened another business which she grew and was able to sell. This allowed her to transition to be fully remote and travel the world working where, when, and how she wants.
She now focuses on teaching people how to shift out of the mindset of not falling victim to their circumstances and their upbringing. She helps them re-write and live their story.

About a year ago, I signed my family and I up for Clear. It was one of the greatest things I’ve ever done to make traveling easier for us. Clear is simple, with the tap of your fingers, you go right through security to help you get to your gate faster. Man is this great with a little one in tow!
I can’t count how many times Clear has saved me in helping me to get to my gate on time. With Clear, you are your ID, so you go right to the front of the line and get through security without messing around with your drivers license, ID or anything else. And it’s not just airports, Clear helps you get through security easier at stadiums for sporting events, concerts, and a host of other events. And if you have a family, you can add up to 3 members at a discounted rate…and my favorite, kids under 18 are FREE when traveling with a Clear member.
CLEAR is the absolute BEST way to get through airport security. It works great with Pre-Check too!
Clear is giving all you Misfits two months of CLEAR for FREE. Go to www.ClearMe.com/Misfit and get started today!
