This has been a whirlwind of a year emotionally. I was listening to a podcast and the speaker referred to year 2020 as the “sacred pause”. Hmmmmmm, did you pause this year?
Covid brought the entire world to a halt. Businesses, schools, employment, social life immediately came to an end. We were forced to slow down, reflect and be intentional. There was time for relationships, time for communication, time for family, time to grow your business, time to workout, time to grow spiritually and more.
I believe everyone experienced some sort of a sacred pause (even if they didn’t want to) because these past months created a lot of time and opportunity for reflection and soul searching.
What changed for you as a result of the pause?
Now what’s next? How can we bounce back and still remain productive this year?
As we close out this quarter and begin to close out 2020 there are “2” very important things that you should focus on end the year strong:
Practice gratitude daily- think about how fast the world shut down in a blink of an eye. Think about where you are now and practice gratitude. In every obstacle or situation something always comes out of it. What is it for you? Be grateful! Speak it! Write it! Share it!
Stop 🛑 procrastinating! – we lost a legendary actor “T-Challa”, “ Black Panther” actor Chadwick Boseman amongst many others lives this year. Chadwick silently battled cancer for 4 years since the Black Panther movie and continued to make movies, appearances etc. What is holding you back? What would you do if you knew you only had the next 4 years to live. What would you fight to accomplish? What relationships would you mend? What would you launch?
Practicing gratitude and constantly staying in action will not only help you to focus on what matters but will ensure you stay productive and no longer just “busy”.
Make it a safe yet fun Labor Day!
P.S. What came to light for you over these past months?? Hit Reply and comment- I would love to read your responses.
It certainly has been one heck of a year. We are currently in July with less than 6 months to go in 2020 and it has been quite eventful.
One thing I can say for sure is that the pandemic and the recent events with George Floyd and many others have really provided an opportunity for the world to be still and open our eyes to see what’s really going on around us.
The pandemic has certainly slowed me down and re-shifted my focus. It made me really think about the things that are truly important like prayer and time with family. As a front-line worker I surely had to pray for my safety and that of my family multiple times a day.
Although I was still busy with work, I actually spoke with more people over the phone, connected with folks more than ever, and had more family time. I mean the hustle and bustle stopped! 🛑
Vanity certainly went out the window for me along with many others with the closing of barbershops, beauty salons, nail salons, gyms etc. and my husband became a gourmet chef.
These enduring times really helped me to realize one thing and one thing for sure, there are a lot of things I can truly do without that I thought I needed and what I thought I didn’t need or didn’t have time for I truly did need.
What about you?
What is the one thing you learned during this pandemic?
Hit reply and share with me. I am looking forward to hearing from you.
Next week I will share more about how being clear on my gifts and talents made room for a promotion during the pandemic.
Are your emotions leading you down the wrong path and affecting your decision-making?
Do you keep questioning yourself ….”Should I start a business”, “Do I know enough people?”, “Can I be successful?”⠀
Here are three ways to help you win over your negative emotions:⠀⠀
Remember the beliefs and values you’re committed to. Know what you believe in and your values. Tap into your spiritual connection through prayer, and meditation. Use these actions as a means to reverse negative thoughts and emotions⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Stick to your committed beliefs and values and to overcome your negative emotions . Don’t steer away from your beliefs and values when your negative emotions start to kick in. Create an affirmation that you can repeat whenever negative emotions start to kick in. This can help you increase self-belief and to remain committed and consistent when overcoming negative emotions ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Surround yourself around positive people. Contact your mentor, coach or like-minded friend, or even think about changing your environment. Go for a walk, workout, yoga etc., These are a few ways you can change your state and become more positive.
Your emotions will destroy your piece of kind, cloud your judgement and your ability to make decisions, especially negative emotions.
Don’t let negative emotions define your life and business. Live life by your commitments and not your feelings!
Stay Healthy & Safe

No Excuses! 🛑⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Hi , I can remember a time when I was struggling to consistently build my side
business while working full-time.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I had every excuse, I’m tired, my family needs me, I don’t feel like it, I don’t have enough time etc. At the end of the year I realized so much time had passed and I was not a productive as I could have been.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I had to seriously reflect and make a decision. Either I would continue to make excuses or I can operate in my purpose. When I made the decision that I would no longer make excuses that was when my business changed drastically!
One thing I did to maximize productivity and consistency waste create non-negotiable time in my daily schedule just for business building. This helped me to overcome my “ I don’t have time” excuse.
What excuses are keeping you from creating and experiencing all you desire?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s time to stop making excuses and start making $cents!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I know it’s been a while since I reached out but just know that it’s all for a good cause. I am a frontline worker in the hospital 5 days a week preparing and battling this Covid-19 pandemic.
One thing I have come to realize is that God surely has a way of humbling you and making you slow down. It’s safe to say that this Pandemic has put a whole lot of things into perspective for me.
I am certainly resting more, praying more than ever, creatively spending more time with family, appreciating conversations over text messages,
staying productive and remaining grateful.
This is definitely a time to reflect on the things that matter most, re-strategize on how you can be your best and use this time to create an intentional plan to launch that dream you’ve always wanted to pursue.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Don’t rush the process….be still, grateful and intentional during these times.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s been an interesting few weeks dealing with Covid-19. It goes to show that in an instant life can change.
The question is how ready are you for a sudden change?
Do you have more than one income stream?
Have you been contemplating on starting that side hustle or dream business?
This pandemic has shown us to be grateful in all things and how important it is not to waste time. Nothing is promised !! Now more than ever is the time for you to take the leap and get started on creating your dreams to impact and change the lives of others.
I challenge you this week to get the resources you need to get that business or side hustle started.
Here are a few business you can start in a recession:
Virtual assistant- many entrepreneurs still need to leverage their time to create and impact while their virtual assistant can take care of administrative tasks to help maintain productivity
Accounting Services- businesses still need to keep their receivables and payables in tact and tracked.
Resume writing- unfortunately some companies have to lay off employees during these times and resume writing will be in high demand as people start to look for new jobs
Coaching- as more people are looking to start or expand their business they need someone who has the skill set in areas they lack in which you have experience in ie. leadership, mindset, marketing, branding etc.
Cleaning services- recession or not companies with classrooms, office spaces, conference rooms etc. need it to be cleaned regularly.
Although one may think that everyone is doing these businesses just remember that there is always enough for everyone. Don’t worry about competition, identify the one thing that can separate you from the rest.
Until Next Time,

So you did all the research, asked all the questions and contemplated for quite some time now. What is holding you back from making the decision.
Most often people are comfortable in their discomfort. They are unhappy with their current situation yet not uncomfortable enough to make a move. Fear is the main reason but think about this, is the fear of making a move greater than staying where you are year after year?
Can you imagine repeating the same struggles and unhappiness in 2021, 2022, 2023 and beyond?? What would it look like if you took a step towards your dreams and accomplished them? What would your new life look and feel like? Take a moment and imagine it today.
Every four years we add an extra day to the calendar in what is called a leap year so in essence you get an extra day. Take some time this day and think about your ideal life? What it will take to get there and what is truly stopping you? Are YOU stopping YOU?
Weigh your options, if you took the leap vs how things will be if you stayed the same.
I guarantee you the leap is well worth it!
You are worth it!
You deserve it all!
Have an amazing Leap Day!!
Until Next Time,
