1. (Strategy) When the world say YES…

    Can I tell you a secret?   I am “no” waiting to happen.   Because I am worried that the world will say “no” to my dreams, I play it safe.   Case in point.   For the 2016 Black Women Millionaires Blueprint 10-City Tour, I didn’t know if anyone would come. So to hedge my bets and be fiscally responsible, Team Defy Impossible and I decided on 50 seats per event, so if it failed, it woul…Read More

  2. 7-Figure Sister Strategy: Practice Builds Profits!

    When Lisa and I were in Cambodia last year, we donated time to a dental clinic for kids. It was a deep time of reflection. I unplugged from my business and social media for 14 days. It was there that I decided I need a “physical spirituality.” I have been working on myself for over 2 decades and wanted a way to feel God and take care of my body. I decided to take an 8-week intensive Hot Yoga T…Read More

  4. I’m so sorry…

    I feel so foolish right now. I had planned on launching all of my New Year “newness,” and NONE of it’s ready. I feel embarrassed—like I spoke too soon. The truth is, I needed to upgrade my current videos, photos, images, and brand BEFORE launching the “newness,” and I didn’t account for the time it would take to get 4 different teams to coordinate.   It’s coming, but it’s behind…Read More

  5. Having Power REQUIRES Giving Up Control

    As you may know, my mother-in-law has been ailing.   So much so that I had to put my wife on a plane to tend to her mom, who’s 91.   Lisa, my wife, was gone for two weeks. She’s home now (yay!) and we are headed to Cambodia for a much-needed vacation and quality time together. I took her to a Mavs game to make her laugh and to lighten up. It worked, and the Mavs CRUSHED the Lakers!#letsgomav…Read More

      I love God and I love my wife. I am a Black Gay Woman Millionaire who is fully self-expressed. I had a situation that hurt me.   I hadn’t felt this type of heartbreak in years.

I actually was trying to hire someone else to start writing my ez…Read More

  8. How to STOP the Past from Sabotaging Profits

      This was a hard one. It hurt me. And the moment this happened, all the old tapes and survival strategies that are designed to keep me safe kicked in. When I get thrown to the past, my reactions are HUGE and visceral. The degree I am emotionally invested in someone—be it a team member, a client, peer, or even family—is the degree to which the betrayal breaks my heart. This one took me all th…Read More

  9. Lean into the P.A.I.N.: the Streets to 7-Figure Success

    I received this question on Facebook and thought it would be important for you to know how I got off the streets. “One question for you: Once you had experienced all your shit (you went through so much), what shifted in you, that changed you?” What changed in me was that I started to see myself as not my body or my circumstances. My 9th grade math teacher treated me different from everyone els…Read More
