Two Crucial Steps To Close The Year Out Strong!

Happy Labor Day!

Summer is coming to an end.

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:

  1. 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!
  2. 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!

The One Thing I Learned During This Pandemic.

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.

Stay Healthy & Safe

Have You Picked Your One Word?

Have you Pick your ONE Word?

Of course with every new year there are resolutions, goals, vision boards etc., but one thing I make sure to establish each year along with all the others is my ONE word.


Your ONE word will help to give you clarity and help you to focus on your overall being. It sets the tone for the year, your path and your results. Your ONE word helps to determine how you want to show up for the year.


Last year my word was consistency and with this I saw my non- profit grow in a direction I never imagined because I was consistent with what I wanted to manifest with it.


I was also consistent because not only did I hire a coach but she held me accountable to be more consistent on social media, blogging my email list and more.


This year my ONE word is “ Implementation”. I learned a lot this year and refuse to be in the info gathering stage so my goal is massive implementation of all that I have learned in order to see massive results.


What is your ONE word for 2020?
Have you picked one ☝🏾?


Share your ONE word with me.


Share this message with a friend and hold each other accountable to your ONE word!

Until Next time,

Why You Should Stop Chasing Success ?

I have reached a point in my life where I no longer climb success mountains. I’m not chasing titles or statuses. I’m more focused on being significant and living a fulfilled life.

I spent the majority of my life chasing what success is or what others think it should be and still was running in circles. My whole reasoning behind a lot of my decisions was to prove to others I was successful, worthy, popular, etc. I was focused on climbing the ladder of success as well by chasing titles.

The problem is, once you achieve it, you stand around looking for what’s next. You see, when success isn’t based on your own desires, fulfillment’s and happiness, as you achieve them you still feel empty and the feeling never lasts.
When you understand that success is short lived, you change your focus from chasing success to chasing things of significance.

So for me, I no longer measure my success against others, chase titles, and tie my self-worth to my accomplishments. I clearly understand what I bring to the table, my value, who I belong to and therefore have nothing to prove.

So listen….you don’t have to prove yourself to others, chase success, try to do the next best thing, or be any and everything to everyone.
Self reflect, understand your gifts, your value and just BE YOU! Your gifts and value will open doors for you that you would have never imagined.

Happy Holidays! 🎄
Until Next Time,

Does Work Life Balance Really Exist??

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Welcome to September ‼️

As we end of this quarter and start to embrace the holidays, New Year, family and career obligations, business and goal setting, the question that constantly comes up is “Does Work Life balance truly exist ❓❓”

We all have the same 24 hours in a day. The truth is how much of it are you spending doing what fulfills you.

When you are running 🏃🏽‍♀️ around chasing priorities you:

1. Don’t get much accomplished ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

2. Feel more overwhelmed and  frustrated

  3. Beat up on yourself for not getting things done.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The one thing you should understand is that everything your juggling is important. The problem is, when you juggle too many things what ultimately happens is that you start to drop a ball or two as you keep adding more priorities.

The goal is to stop juggling and start managing your tasks.

No more will your tasks manage you!!

Here are 2 simple steps to managing tasks and achieving a sense of fulfillment.

1. Set priorities and rank them in order of importance.

2. Identify what needs to be done immediately, within the next 7 days and what can wait a bit.⠀⠀

3. Use a calendar to schedule and map out your priorities that need to be accomplished that week and month. Make sure that the times you set are are non-negotiable.⠀⠀

4. Highlight, check-off and celebrate each small win you accomplish. These small wins ultimately leads to big goals and you will feel a sense of accomplishment. ⠀⠀⠀

These steps can help to ensure that you focus on completing the most pertinent tasks, as opposed to placing your time and attention on tasks that can wait.

Prioritize your task list this week and see how much you will get accomplished!

Until Next Time

Is Sisterhood Crucial For Success?

Behind every successful woman is a sister friend or circle that support  and pushes her to be her best. Oprah has Gail, Kelly Rowland & Beyonce,  La La & Kim Kardashian to name  few. Either way they all have their sister circle.

As an introvert I love keeping to myself so sisterhood is foreign to me. I keep a handful of people close to me.

I would prefer to sit in a corner listening to my favorite book or just sit quietly at a function observing before networking or jumping into anything. I love keeping to myself.  Let me know if i am by myself with this one.Don’t get me wrong, I love to have fun and party  but when I’m in a comfortable setting. 

I am starting to believe that this whole introvert thing is a means to accept the term and remain comfortable? This i will address another day but overtime I learned that this is not the way to grow and succeed. 

When women come together to support and empower other women, something magical happens. You need quality relationships, accountability and people that will keep you in check. You need that sisterhood that will force you out of the corner and out of your comfort zone. Those sisters that will ask you “Why haven’t you started that thing yet?” Sisters that listen to you, accept you as you are, see you as who you are becoming, don’t hold you back or get jealous of you, support you in your mission, and celebrate you. Your sisterhood should empower you.

 Heck Women Understand Women!

Oftentimes with entrepreneurship, it can get a bit lonely especially when former friends are not on the same journey as you. It is always great to have like minds and folks of different experiences able to pour into you and guide you available to you.
So all my introverted ladies that’s stepping outside their comfort zones to network, build relationships, businesses, tribes and pour into others reach out and  send a text to your tribe letting them know how much you appreciate them.

For those that are searching for a tribe there are 2 things you can do:

1. Search Facebook Groups with similar interests and join them. Comment, make connections, friend requests and contribute to the group.


2. Create a tribe of your own. I am certain that there are many women out there looking for a tribe, start your own.

If we truly expect to rise to the levels of success we want, we must come together.
