What does Freedom mean to you? For some it’s the ability to come and go as they please, the ability to spend money without checking their account, the ability to not work a 9-5 etc.
At one point freedom for me was working one high paying job as a nurse! But now …..,.
🌟 Freedom for me is the ability to be “me” without any worries of what others think or say. 👩🏽⚕️ Freedom is not having to punching a clock, or needing to request time off (plan in place). 💻 Freedom is the opportunity to create a business that aligns with my passion and help others succeed. 🤲🏾 Freedom is the ability to speak freely about my Creator! Are you working towards your freedom or staying comfortable in your bondage❓❓👀 Whatever freedom looks like to you, get a plan in place and start to create and live a life free from the constraints and limits you may be putting on it. Alright now it’s your turn, What does freedom mean to you sis❓❓ Hit Reply and share your thoughts!

I was just sitting here reflecting on my teenage years when I became a teen mom at 17. I went through so many emotions, thoughts, self-doubt with lots of uncertainty.
I could have let this one mistake determine the whole trajectory of my life for better or worst but I came to realize one thing…….
We all mess up. Period ‼️
So instead of beating yourself up and letting your mistakes hold you back every time you do mess up…
How about you shift the way you see your mistakes?
Either your past will keep you in a rut of guilt and shame…or you will accept it for what it is and experience the freedom to move on and enjoy the now.
I chose freedom!
I chose to not be so hard on myself and to forgive myself for my mistakes. This helped me to keep striving for success and helped me to overcome all the obstacles I faced then and up until now.
I pursued on to graduate High School, enroll and complete Nursing School, start multiple successful businesses while climbing the career ladder to a top leadership position and now helping others do the same.
What will you choose today, Freedom or Guilt?

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.
This clearly has been a difficult time for most during the last 5 months dealing with Covid-19, losses of family and friends, close ones losing jobs etc. It has truly been a trying time. Most of you know that I am a Registered Nurse by trade, still working as a leader in the hospital setting during this pandemic. I am grateful to GOD for having a job during these trying times. I could complain about having to go to work every day and possibly getting to be exposed to the virus or staying at home without an income, so I pick my battles.
A great thing occurred in the midst of the pandemic, I received a promotion to a Director role in Nursing. Look at God! One thing I know for sure is that being confident in what my gifts are and knowing my worth-what I bring to the table, attributed to me receiving this promotion.
Once you are clear about who you are, what you offer and what your gifts are, you can speak to the results you bring, cast the vision for others to see and build followers to help you to achieve it.
So, here are the three strategies you will need to know and do in order to advance to the next level in your career or business .
What Do You Offer?: The first thing you have to do is be crystal clear on what you can offer . What do you bring to the table ? I know my gift is administration and leadership. I am also a Shepherd and I help to move people in one accord, I help the lost. With these gifts I pour into others to achieve one common goal. I would recommend that you search online and take a spiritual gifts test so that you can clearly know what your gifts are and how you can apply it to your profession or business. This way you are aware of you strengths and what areas you can exceed in.
What Do You Want? : The second thing you must to be clear on is what do you want? If you want a promotion and that advancement to the next level, you have to be clear on exactly what it is that you want. This will help you to decipher from the things you do not want . Clarity is everything for the next level and for any advancement, or accomplishment. You must be certain not to muddy the waters with too much activities that will keep you busy and not productive, therefore hindering you from reaching your next level. Get Clear!!
Will You Work For It? : Finally, you have to be willing to work for it. Work hard like it depends on you but knowing that this is something you are destined for by God. You deserve it! Plus, if this opportunity was not for you how could you ever envision it. Once you can see it, you can achieve it, so you have to believe that this is for you . If God has clearly planted the vision within you then you must know that it’s within your reach, so you have to work for it and know that this is for YOU!
Think about these three things knowing your gifts , being clear about what you want , and working hard towards it and think about how you can apply these three strategies in your career or business to advance to the next level .
Stay Healthy & Safe
P.S. Would love to hear from you…. What are some topics you would like me to touch on? I’m looking forward to your response.
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.
