I have gone broke (even filed bankruptcy), been homeless and divorced but I’ve also started several successful businesses, bought my dream house, raised to 2 great kids who are contributing to society - one as an insurance professional and the other a Hollywood actor.
Now that I’m living my dream life, I have made it my life mission to help as many women as I can create the online business and life that they want and deserve AND to create that life or business in an authentic way; the way that feels right for them!
I bet you are pregnant with ideas and dreams and I can help you give birth to those dreams and and turns those ideas into a profitable business.
Now let me tell you a little more about myself, about what I’ve overcome and what I’ve achieved so that you can have a better idea of what is possible in your own life and so that you will know - without a shadow of a doubt, why I’m the person that can help you achieve your goals.
At the age of 25 I found myself in a relationship which started as a fairy tale courtship and turned into a living hell. Pregnant with my second child and with a toddler in tow, I was abandoned by my husband and had no choice but to return to my parents’ home. After the birth of my son, I got a job as a city clerical assistant. I felt like a complete failure.
Are you at a place in your life where you feel like you have failed or that it’s too late to launch your online business, go back to school, buy a house, get your finances straight, lose weight or get healthy?
Out of financial necessity (the desire to stop paying rent and buy my first house), I started my first side business - a cake baking and decorating business. This little business was so successful, I was able to save enough money to build my first home! It was a tiny 900 square foot, 3 bedroom, 2 bath home in a not so great neighborhood but it was me and my 2 children’s home and I even had a basketball goal installed on the driveway. This is when I realized that entrepreneurship is the key to building wealth.
Have you considered that the goal you want to achieve was placed in your heart and mind because this is your destiny?
I grew up pretty much with a silver spoon in my mouth. My dad was an entrepreneur who owned a radio and television repair business and my mom was an elementary school principal. Education was important to my family so right after graduating from high school, off to college I went. On the third day of my college life, I met the man who would become my first husband. This man is also the person who sexually assaulted me via a date rape. I forgave him, we both dropped out of college, he joined the military, my parents paid for a big wedding and off we went to Omaha, Nebraska and the Air Force. That marriage lasted 9 months and after great emotional abuse, I returned to my parents’ home.
Eventually, I married again but it didn’t last and even though I graduated with my Bachelor’s Degree at the age of 38, right around the time of my graduation, the little house I’d built was lost to foreclosure. I had to file bankruptcy and my car was repossessed. My two children and I were homeless. A friend allowed us to move in with her until I could get back on my feet.
Do you believe that because you have failed at something or lost a lot, that you cannot begin again?
Even though I knew in my soul that entrepreneurship was the best way to better my finances, I bought into the belief system that a good education would be my ticket to financial freedom and a better life. So not true! However, I played the societal game and after graduating from college, I began a career in higher education as a student services professional. However, I always had a side hustle. I started a ladies suit and accessories business. I also started a financially rewarding event planning firm and along the way, earned my Master’s Degree in Education.
I also published my book, Lessons Learned: While Looking for Love in All the Wrong Faces, a relationship memoir which helps women identify men they should not enter into a relationship with.
BUT … after all of these “accomplishments,” I still felt unfulfilled and like I wasn’t living my purpose.
Is that how you are feeling right now?
During my career in higher education, I realized that I loved and was good at counseling, motivating and inspiring women. This led to the realization that I could launch a profitable career as a personal coach to women so I invested in a personal coach certification. Making this decision has allowed me to serve women who are struggling to achieve goals which will make their lives better. I have been able to build an authentic life on my own terms which includes purchasing my dream 3,000 square foot home in Atlanta, GA in which I now reside.
Building a business and designing a life you love is not easy. But I’ve learned that with vision, drive and determination you can achieve your goals. I’m living proof of that. I now have a great desire to help others see they too can achieve their goals. I believe it’s never too late to begin again and to create the business and life that you want.
The most important thing I learned while trying to achieve a large goal is that you must decide what it is that you really want, set concrete goals and take specific actions steps. Once you’ve achieved that goal, cross it off your list and go the next one. This simple formula has helped me forward in creating a life and business that I love!
And … this is how I coach. I help you:
Decide what you REALLY want
Create goals to get you what you want
Design a strategy - the exact action steps you need to take to get what you want
Remember, this life of yours is not a dress rehearsal. This is the real deal. This is it. Now is the time to make it happen!
Rabbi Harold Kushner once said, “Our souls are hungry for meaning, for the sense that we have figured out how to live so that our lives matter, so we can help make a difference while we are on Earth… What frustrates us and robs our lives of joy is this absence of meaning.” Far too many of us settle for mediocrity instead of searching for real meaning and real satisfaction.
If you give me the opportunity to do so, I can help you learn how to create true freedom in your life. You will grow as an entrepreneur and as a human being. I would love to share my entrepreneurial knowledge and life experience with you. Let’s grow, build wealth together and and live authentically. You really can become the true artist on this canvas called life.
