This pandemic has definitely woken me up from the spell that had come over while working my six-figure paying job this past year. Once again, I had fallen off the entrepreneurial wagon because “they” dangled some cash in front of me, told me how special I was, and sucked me back into corporate America. I knew getting a job again would be a trap, but I did it anyway because I was so tired of the financial rollercoaster I was on as a business owner. My main goals were to get a steady income while I get out of the debt that I created the year prior while working for myself. This way, I can go back in business for myself with more leverage.
Long story short, the COV-19 pandemic hit.Read More…
As a small business owner, I use QuickBooks Online because it’s an affordable option to send, track and get paid on my client invoices online.
One of my favorite features of QuickBooks Online is getting my money deposited in my bank account within 24 business hours of receiving payment. I also love that I can offer my customers the opportunity to pay by check to avoid credit card processing fees.Read More…
Most employers that I worked for benefited from me successfully starting up and running their companies, divisions, and projects within their organization. In return for my efforts, these employers have gone on to be much more successful, and I simply just continued to earn my good steady salary and a few employee-of-the-month awards. To many people, that probably doesn’t seem so bad. And I did not have an issue an employee per se because it afforded me some of the luxuries I enjoy still enjoy in life, but my aim is to be free to earn a living without feeling like I am being taken advantage of or limited.Read More…
15 Lessons I Learned In 2018 That Will Help Shape Me In 2019 and Beyond

1 Corinthians 3:6-9
6 I planted the seed in your hearts, and Apollos watered it, but it was God who made it grow. 7 It’s not important who does the planting, or who does the watering. What’s important is that God makes the seed grow. 8 The one who plants and the one who waters work together with the same purpose. And both will be rewarded for their own hard work.9 For we are both God’s workers. And you are God’s field. You are God’s building.
Today was my teenage daughter’s 8th grade prom! I am so proud of how wonderfully my daughter is growing up. Excelling in school, pleasant, talented, beautiful inside and out, independent, respectful for the most part (hey, she is still a teenager) and the list goes on. What more can a mom ask for? She is definitely a blessing in my life and I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE my baby, turned young lady, to pieces!!!
I have a burning desire to succeed! Even though I am already successful in my own right, my instincts tell me so much more opportunity is coming my way…and real soon! Thank God for continuing to bless me daily. I am not sure where I will end up, but I am exactly who God made me be today.Read More…
If you think you are beaten, you are; If you think you dare not, you don’t; If you like to win, but you think you can’t, It is almost certain you won’t. If you think you’ll lose you’ve lost, For out of the world we find Success begins with a fellow’s will – It’s all in the state of mind. If you think you are outclassed, you are – You’ve got to think high to rise. You’ve got to be sure of yourself before You can ever win a prize. Life’s battles don’t always go To the stronger or faster man; But soon or late the man who wins Is the man who thinks he can.

Finally! I am starting to not be so uptight about my natural hair and what I am do with it. I am letting it down!
It has been seven months since I have completely stopped straightening my natural hair with blow drying and flat ironing. Ever since, my style has pretty much been exactly the same – wearing it in a banana clip! But now since my hair is growing back, it’s time to change up my look again, like I normally do every so often.

30 day fitness challenges…here I come!!
I am really embarrassed to admit that I ended up taking four months off from working out after going H.A.M. in the gym for four months straight and no more than 1-2 days off per week. The GREAT news is I’m flawless and “I WOKE UP LIKE THIS” anyway! Okay no…just kidding…well no not really because I have great genes (LOL). But the great news is really that I am getting back on my health and fitness game! 🙂Read More…
