George Washington Carver. He was a botanist and inventor, and I honor his genius and heart, because like me, his work came from a vis…Read More

  3. Pursuing Perfection Versus Embracing Excellence

    I know, it’s hard. It’s hard to be a high-achiever out to give your very best to the world and not slip into becoming driven. I understand. My entire client base is filled with brilliant, conscious, purpose-driven CEOs, executives, entrepreneurs, experts, leaders, and Ph.D.s who want to make their mark, make a difference, and make millions. But we have a problem. Most high-achievers have learn…Read More

  5. Why Resolutions Suck (and 3 Steps to Having a GREAT 2018)

    I’ll say it; New Year’s resolutions suck! #realtalk: They are counterproductive. Think about it: they’re resolutions … Things you resolve yourself to do! So let’s say you feel pressured to do something (whatever it is—gym, diet, relationships, money, etc.). So you make the resolution, and then you work toward it under duress! You do it because you think you “have” to, even if you d…Read More

  6. Out with Resolutions … in with Divine Declarations

    Keywords: Here we are, in the second full week of January. Goal setting, vision boards, and affirmations are ALL around us, and they’re all awesome! Really. They’re ALL great things to try when you’re ready for a “new you, in the new year.” I do things just a little differently. #hollaatyourgirl!! I create a three-word theme, first. For 2018, it’s Confluence. Influence. Affluence. Then…Read More

  7. What’s Your 2018 Theme?

    We are four days into 2018 … and I want to know: How’s it going for you, sis?? How are you feeling? How is your energy?   In this season of giving … have you spent any time on YOU, yet? (Be honest. #iseeyou) As Black Women, we take care of everyone and everything before we take care of ourselves. We’ll give and give and give … without ever stopping to give to ourselves. So let me ask yo…Read More

  8. The Gift of a Great Mentor

    Let’s face it: success can be lonely. One of the things I have been longing for is a peer group that could feed me and provide a safe space for me to be heard, seen, and loved. So I invested in myself by working with my scaling mentor, Lisa Cherney, and a peer group of BEAST-MODE bo$$e$! LC is woo-woo on steroids, and a marketing/growth/scaling genius. She was the one who showed me how we can do…Read More

  9. The Gift of Healing

    Wounds. We all have them. No matter your race, religion, beliefs, politics … we have all been hurt, and we all have scars. The problem is that those scars often become blocks—energetic blocks—that keep you from experiencing an abundant, happy life on your own terms, as a strong black woman. Maybe your wounds are physical—something related to your body. Maybe they’re generational—reflec…Read More

  10. Gift or Guilt: Giving as Inspiration or Obligation

    When I was living on the streets, there was one place I KNEW I could get food and clothes from: The Black Church. Mt. Calvary Star Baptist Church, to be specific. Rev. Young was the pastor.   When I joined the Coast Guard Reserves to get off the streets, Rev. Young took up a collection for me. That money covered my travel expenses, clothes, food, and other necessities during my entire Bootcamp ex…Read More
