I have always had a deep desire to help those closest to me. Growing up, I often heard the phrase, “It takes a village”. But I realized that my village was often left out of the picture for progress, and I have always wanted to change that.
As a black woman, I always felt that I had two strikes against me, especially in the corporate world. I worked for a multi-million dollar company, and built one of their most valuable assets on my own, but the stress of always having to work twice as hard to get half the recognition and success was beginning to show up in my body. I was getting sick and my body was shutting down. I found myself, a young woman, in and out of different doctor’s offices, being tested for cancer, having my heart checked… The doctors couldn’t figure out what was wrong with me, and with my symptoms showing no sign of improving, I began to fear the worst. Then, while at the cardiologist, my doctor asked me, “Do you have a stressful job?” It all started to make sense. So, on the way home, I had to ask myself: Is this really worth it? Is this job really worth sacrificing my health? The answer was and will always be: NO.
I realized that I had to make a change, and fast. I began researching entrepreneurship and women-owned companies. I saw a lot of smiling faces that did not look like me, but I realized that there is no difference between them and me. The only difference, from my point of view, was that they felt that they deserved to be there. So I asked myself: What does it look like to raise my sense of deserving and walk in my power so I can help other people? Who would I be? How would I behave?
My mentor likes to say that your quality of life depends on the quality of questions you are willing to ask yourself. Einstein has even been quoted saying that if he had a life or death problem that he had to solve within one hour, he would spend 55 minutes asking himself questions. Because once he asked himself the right question, he would easily be able to find the answer. Rainer Maria Rilke says: “Do not search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now and perhaps, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer”.
I could have easily asked myself: What medicine do I need? Or, why won’t they give me a raise? How can I get out of my job? But I asked myself a question that expanded my heart, and would require me to grow into the answer.
We are far more capable than we realize, and I want to help you discover the same things that have set me free. The things that have allowed me to say YES to myself and YES to my dreams.

I have a vision of uplifting my community because I believe in us. I believe that we are capable of living a life full of abundance. We just need to unlock the code. And guess what? You already have the key. So let’s do it together! Change has to start somewhere, and it can start right here, with you.
I know you desire great things for your life, and I know you want to make an impact in the world. So I challenge you to ask yourself, “What would I love for my life?”
Let me also ask you this: Where do you think civil rights would be if Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was more concerned about the “how” than his dream? Did he wait for his circumstances to be better to fight for change? MLK said he had a dream, not a strategy for when the time was right. Do you think Nelson Mandela would have had the strength to lead the same country that imprisoned him for 27 years if his dream wasn’t more powerful than his circumstance? Me neither.
I believe in you, and I look forward to connecting soon!
