1. {7-Fig Strategy} w.o.w.

    My agents scheduled a call with a BIG publishing house for my book deal. w.o.w. #thisisreallyhappening I have been in a quiet panic for a while now. The day I found out about the call, I felt the panic washing over me. And then I heard me talk to me in an inner voice I have NEVER used. I said to my self, my survival, my fear, my insecurities, my worthlessness, “I REFUSE to doubt God.” It was a…Read More

  2. (Strategy) I didn’t realize this… until now…

    My Nanna came to be with Lisa and me over the weekend. We even met up with my very first champion, Scott. It was his vision for my life that supported me to trust God and become a Black businesswoman. This weekend was full circle. I realized, while enveloped in love and support, that I was healing. I realize that I am in mourning. The old dream has died. The old me has completed the task. For year…Read More

  3. {Strategy} Dear Beloved…

    I love you. I know you have been hurt since they said no… I know you have been scared since the election. I know you want to do your very best, but feel inadequate. I know you feel guilty because you couldn’t make things work for everyone. I know your trust is low and you’re afraid of being disappointed.   I know that on a deep level you feel hopeless. I know you are scared you can’t have…Read More

  4. {Strategy} Worth or Worthy: Which runs YOU?

    My agents are sending my book proposal to editors starting this week.   Lisa and I will fly out to meet with editors in NYC mid-February. The book will be sold by the end of February.   I consider myself a strong black woman. Not “strong” in the made-of-steel kind of way. But strong in the sense of creating a Black business from nothing by my pain.   Yet after talking with my agents, I felt…Read More

  5. (Strategy) Hearing whispers from God…

    Whew!   2017 has started and I already feel like I am runnin’—in a good way!   I fell ill at the end of 2016. It gave me time to reflect and to hear whispers from God.   This is what I heard: s.l.o.w. d.o.w.n.   So I have.   I had created these vision boards for 2017 and they are coming true! In slowing down, I am taking care of myself: We hire our very 1st full-time IN PERSON staff membe…Read More

  6. {Strategy} The politics of race & cash…  

    I did my State of The Union Address for Black Women Entrepreneurs. We reached over 600,000 people, had over 66 shares and 10,000 views in less than 24 hours. Can we say “Black Power?” I revealed something I am doing with my company in 2017 to make sure every sister—who wants to—can learn how to bring in cash starting exactly where you are! Here is the live stream. It runs 52 minutes. If yo…Read More

  7. {Strategy} Dying to live…

    A lot can happen in a week. I am back from the hospital and am resting. Lisa has been great with me. In the midst of ALL of this we have had a bunch of business breakdowns, turn over, and just expansion. All this change is forcing me to let go. Forcing me to surrender. Forcing me to get help instead of going it alone. As Black Women, the biggest block to our growth and success is getting help and …Read More

  8. {Strategy} Please don’t…

    Holidays can be hard—stirring up old memories of old wounds. Family wounds. Lisa’s family came to town and I felt good about making her mom laugh and connecting with one of her sisters. Lisa comes from a family of love. It’s not perfect, but the default is love. My family was not that. My birth mother would have aborted me if she could have. I was raised knowing she wished I had never been b…Read More

  9. {Strategy} YOU should be doing this…

    Lisa and I are with other Sister Millionaires masterminding 2017 at the STUNNING Grand Velas in Mexico! After we finish working, Lisa and I will stay here for our winter quarter vacation. Have you ever said, “I want to travel the world, discover different cultures, and meet new people”? Good. That’s exactly what I am doing, and you should too. You can combine business with pleasure. In fact,…Read More

  10. {Strategy} #1 Secret to KEEPING High-End Clients…

    Needless to say, I love my tribe. I specifically thank God for my Black Women Millionaires Mastermind members. These women (and some brothers who love us) highly invest in themselves to work with me directly for one to three years. As a practice, I look for ways to overgive. I am always looking at how I can wow my clients who have trusted me with their dreams. So for our December Revenue Retreat, …Read More
