I love the Saints, but I am not a football fan. I like the name 'rundown' because I am a little over 'recap'. The year 2019 was certainly an engaging one for me. I managed to host networking events, attend many wonderful events held by different affinity groups, judge food events and build many connections and relationships along the way. I always say this; I am so thankful for all of the wonderful relationships I made and I look forward to nurturing them. I am also grateful to have touched so many women and introduced them to many long - lasting connections. I started with an Instagram following under 100 and built it to almost 7K, in less than 10 months. My Facebook followers and groups are in the hundreds, just under this period. I attribute it to the following and support that I received. I was able to work with some brands for partnerships and write some pretty awesome local and national blogs. Am I satisfied? Not yet, Am I thirsty? No. There's always more to be desired but I am completely grateful for all of the opportunities presented to me.
I didn't know much about this business, when I started, I thank some friends for taking me 'under their wings' and teaching me a few tricks..
I am most thankful for my husband for allowing me the opportunity to make the most of "my moment" and supporting it. Thank you to the women who attend my my events and continue to support. I hope I can be a light in your life and will also continue to support.
I just want to inspire little girls and women to do anything their hearts desire, if it feels right.
GO BIGGER! It's not a MOTTO, It's a LIFESTYLE..
Multiple studies have been conducted and it has been proven that women with strong female circles of friends tend to do better in the workforce. To shed more light on this, I have also concluded that having multiple circles of friends can be more beneficial to women. Having multiple viewpoints can help when you have to turn to your tribe for advice. One friend/colleague may not be well versed or as knowledgeable on one subject as another friend. It definitely helps to get that unsolicited (well needed) advice from my sisters. We gotta keep each other in check.
What's my purpose in life? It's simple, to continue to build and uplift women in the community and continue to grow in a higher power. At the end of the day, I want everything/everyone I touch to turn to gold. Like Lizzo says, "if i'm shining, everybody gonna shine". That's how I roll...
I look forward to raising awareness about many issues in the community and hopefully change lives. There is definitely more to life than money. I want to inspire others go after happiness over money. It will take you further. I have definitely evolved past the "one trick pony" routine and learned to wear several hats. I am still learning how to multi task at the most effective levels and I am getting better in my journey through storytelling. I come up with the best stories/blogs while driving my commute or laying in the bed. That's where the magic happens!!! Once the kids and the hubby are tucked away, I can focus on the empire I am building for us.
In looking back, I can only look forward. I am so excited about 2020 and I have lots of surprises in store. I am super-duper excited about my annual event in March 2020 and can't wait to share more.
I just wanted to give you a rundown/replay of the year 2019. The details are in the photos..
