Commitment to Helping Others Makes This Rags to Riches Story Even Better

San Diego, CA: Standing in long lines in the freezing cold weather to get a ration of food seemed normal as a child growing up in Romania. But, Izabela Hamilton knew she wanted more. From a young age, Izabela Hamilton was told that America is a place where people go to make something of themselves. Izabela believed in this image of America and worked hard to make this ‘land of opportunity’ her reality. When she received her visa to go to America, it was one of the happiest of her life! She knew her life would never be the same, and wanted to make things better for her family as well.

“I made the decision that I will live in America and nothing could stop me,” said Hamilton. “Funny thing is about wishes when you make them, they come true. I was able to get into a program, go to the embassy, and be granted a visa for America. What a win that was! I felt like my life would completely change and it did. Was it easy? Far from it!”

Success was anything but easy. Hamilton worked hard – sometimes in excess of 60 hours per week – to earn enough money to support herself and send some home to support her family. Of this experience, she says, “All I thought of every day was that I wanted them to never have to worry about money again. I didn’t care how much I had to work as long as they were happy.

Oftentimes I fell asleep crying due to exhaustion, and loneliness, but I knew that I couldn’t give up at the first sign of hardship. I was set up to succeed and that’s all I saw.”

  Failure was not an option. She dreamed of helping one million people achieve financial freedom by working at a business that they own. So, with a laptop and the dream – she founded Rankbell

– an Amazon ranking company that helps sellers grow their business. Like most entrepreneurs, she didn’t start out making much. But, Rankbell has since helped thousands of sellers – some of whom started with profits as low as $100 per month – grow their businesses into 7, 8, and sometimes even 9 figures. The company is also on track to achieve Hamilton’s original goal of helping one million Amazon sellers grow their businesses by the year 2030. Rankbell was also recently voted as the leading expert in their industry.

Established in 2015, the ranking service provides sellers with a variety of services to help increase Amazon rankings, boost sales, and maximize profits. Though more services are added as the need arises, they currently specialize in assisting with product launches, content marketing, PPC management, listing and optimization, video and image services, and social media.

How Berite Labelle Is Translating Her International Modelling Career Into Acting Through Passion and Self-Care

mm

Published

on

Moldovan-born beauty Berite Labelle has shed her chrysalis to emerge as an actor and writer.

For several years, Berite has deconstructed, redefined, and developed her modeling skills into techniques fit for an A-list actor.

The path from the catwalk to the film set is a walk of fame mastered by Hollywood legends including Grace Kelly, Nicole Kidman, and Noémie Lenoir. Naomi Campbell successfully transitioned to the small screen as an actor and performed brilliant comedy roles spoofing herself with perfect timing and delivery. Former model and Emmy Award winner Tyra Banks turned to acting and hosted her eponymous chat show. She also birthed an industry from her modeling career and today has a net worth of $90million.

Passion First

Berite’s passion for communication is at the core of her acting and writing ambitions. She aims for both movies and the stage.

Already established as a successful model in Europe, Berite’s vertical performance started in 2019 when she participated in the World Championship of Performing Arts competition in Long Beach, California. She entered the Spoken Model category and claimed first place. Propelled by her competitive success, she went on to study acting at the New York Film Academy on a partial scholarship. She also competed in dramatics and comic monologues performances in Los Angeles.

During her modeling career, she showcased luxury brands including La Perla and France’s Aubade lingerie house at The Four Seasons Hotel – Geneva, and luxury jeweler Faberge. She also walked the runway for Tiffany’s fashion week in Paris and represented hair giant Toni & Guy.

“At the same time as modeling, I joined a small theatrical company in Switzerland. I decided that it was my mission to become an actor. As well as working with the theatre company, I set about teaching myself English. Communication is key in acting, and the more languages you can communicate in, the better.”

Emotional Intelligence

Berite has acted in music videos and is working on a project where she serves two different roles of important historical women: the last Egyptian Ptolemaic queen Cleopatra and the Victorian English writer Mary Wollstonecraft. Berite is also writing scripts. 

“I love communicating in different languages, as shown by competing in California. Today my overarching professional desire is about expression and interchange. I am inspired to communicate as an actor on a deep emotional level. To tell a story non-verbally,” says Berite. 

“Acting demands a high level of emotional intelligence that is outward-facing and creative, but you also need to be able to run a business. As an entrepreneur, I am the founder and CEO of my entertainment company – Berite Labelle.”

It is hardly surprising that Berite pivoted toward acting. Adaptation and learning new cultures are hallmarks of her childhood. Born in the tiny former Soviet country of Moldova in Eastern Europe, Berite traveled the world with her Chadian father, who worked for the United Nations. Constant traveling meant new schools, cultures, and languages. Berite thrived until her father died when she was 14 years old. Her family decided to send the teenager to school in Paris, where she fell into bad company.

It took three years for the young woman to determine that she was the only person empowered to change her life. It was an epiphany that changed the course of her life, and she walked away from the shady side of teenage years. At 17 years old, Berite enrolled in a diploma course studying commerce to set a positive direction. As part of her education, she landed an internship with the exclusive Swiss watchmaker and jeweler -Bucherer est 1880. During this time, the young woman understood that her way forward was to become a model. She immersed herself in a sophisticated and creative life.

Dream Big

It was not the first time Berite considered modeling as a career. As a child, a colleague of her father predicted the little girl would become a model. The prophecy triggered Bertie’s lifelong love of fashion, and the little girl’s favorite entertainment was watching Fashion TV. She also took up ballet, which helped her modeling career bloom.

To this day, the entrepreneur continues to dance as both a way to express her creative energy, de-stress, and maintain her physical form. She has also performed in music videos. 

Indeed, a successful modeling career requires strict discipline and self-care – two covenants are a must for a career as an actor.

“It is essential to stay in shape, so I still dance, and I also enjoy going hiking, and I practice yoga. Drinking plenty of water is great for your skin, and I have a routine for sleeping and looking after myself,” Berite explains. 

“Selfcare is as much of a priority as self-love. When you develop your routine and perform it faithfully, you learn how to love yourself and properly care for yourself. Confidence is important in the world of entertainment. To take good care of others and to love them authentically, you must feel good about yourself. It helps if you never forget about your own needs and feelings,” she says.

Self Care

Berite is a great believer in reading for pleasure as self-care; “reading scripts, books and work-related material counts as self-care.”

Given that Berite is often exploring another person’s character, working on mastering accents, or running her business, she likes to check out of her dynamic workspace through meditation. She has also discovered a rich vein of joy by continuing her education with online acting courses with Acting Center in Los Angeles.

The final thread of Berite’s self-care regime is twice weekly hair and face masks, which she believes are well-earned breaks from a fully engaged life.
