What were your initial years of growing up like? Tell us about your life before starting your corporate journey/venture/initiative.

I had a challenging upbringing. My mom divorced my dad when I was 3. He was abusive to her and he never really cared much for me and my older sister. He was in and out of our lives. He had always wanted a son, so was disappointed when he had 2 girls. My mom worked real hard to take care of us as best she could. She loved us very much, but unfortunately grew up in a lot of negativity herself, so it was no surprise that she too believed the worst in everything. I grew up being told that true love doesn’t exist, you have to be born into wealth or be lucky to make it in this world, and that people like us just have to work hard to barely get by. Despite that, I watched a lot of Disney movies and would dream about finding my soulmate. I also watched many celebrities and dreamt of some day having  some kind of fame and making a real difference in this world. My journey into my preteens only got worse. I was very insecure and hated everything about myself. I fell into depression and ended up turning to alcohol and drugs to numb the pain. I had eating disorders and struggled with suicidal thoughts. My mom tried to get me help with therapy and medicine, but I was too rebellious and the medicine only made me worse. I fell into sex at an early age and just continued to spiral. I got into even harder drugs in my teen years and ended up becoming homeless at 16 when we got evicted from our home. I moved from place to place until God intervened and saved my life. It really was not until I became a mother at the age of 20 that I started to really change my life around. I still had many challenges and so much to learn, but I can say I have completely changed my life around, found my soulmate, and am truly thankful I made the decision to change all those years ago. There is so much more to my story than I can share here, but I do plan to write my own book someday in hopes to truly inspiring anyone who may have or be in a bad place in their life to know that no matter how bad life can be or is, you do have the power to change it around and make it into one you love and desire.

Every industry that is now a large-scale, top-notch business once started as a small idea in the minds of entrepreneurs. What was that idea or motivation that made you start your business /initiative? What motivated you within to say YES, go for it!”

When it came to me deciding to start my own business, I was in a place in my life where I got connected with a Life Coach who just blew me away. I had already worked hard to be where I was and have the life I had, but I still had no idea who I was outside of being a wife, mom, and employee. I was also very unhappy with my job. I always felt I was made for more, but never really knew what exactly I was meant to do. Once I got into the world of coaching, I learned so much about myself and transformed even further than I ever thought possible. I then felt called to share my story and help others do the same. I used to dream of being a motivational speaker and inspiring the lives of others. I felt through life coaching, I could gain the knowledge and experience to do just that. It was later on into that journey that I was led to podcasting. That has become my favorite part of the journey as I get to meet the most incredible people all over the world and give them a platform to share their stories and inspire moms everywhere. It is truly beautiful to see women coming together to support and love one another over the competitive and jealous mindset I had previously been used to. I know that listening to my intuition was the best move I could make and so here I am doing so much more than I ever imagined and I am just getting started. I can’t wait to see where this takes me. I am so glad I said YES! If you are on the fence, but feel a calling to take a leap towards something that may feel scary or seem unrealistic, I recommend you go for it anyways and trust that it will all work out exactly as it needs to when it is supposed to and you will never have regrets for trying to do something you love.

Would you like to share with our young budding women entrepreneurs the change you would like to see in the world if given an opportunity?

I would love to see more self love and self acceptance. I feel like society & government has placed so much negative pressure onto us to look, act, and believe ridiculous ideologies that promote insecurities, division, and competitiveness that ultimately divides us instead of bringing us together. I want us to teach our children and the next generation that we are amazing just the way we are and that going after a life we desire is not only possible, but that we are all worthy and deserving of it. I want to see more love and support towards one another so we all work together to find the happiness and success that is meant for us all. I want to see more kindness and compassion. I am certainly going to do all I can to spread that and help as many as I can to believe in themselves, love themselves, and know their worth.

Women are a growing force in the workplaces worldwide, standing shoulder to shoulder with their male counterparts. There are cracks in glass ceilings everywhere, with many women breaking through to carve out a space right at the top of the pyramid. What are your thoughts about women leadership today?

It is wonderful to see the growth in women leadership all over the world and I certainly enjoy being part of it. I do believe men have an amazing place in this world and am grateful for the many things they do and have taught us. I certainly would not want to have to do some of the things they do as my husband works in landscape and I am good not having to build retaining walls or even mowing my yard lol. That said, I absolutely love to see more and more women getting to rise to the top in ways I know they have not always been fairly given the chance to. We women are incredibly hard working, intelligent, capable, and worthy of so much and it is about time that we get the opportunities to showcase that in other ways than just being wives and moms. We live in amazing times with the technology and changes that are happening, and it is awesome to see the women leadership growth and know we are just getting started with that as well!

What’s the most important thing you have learned in your personal life and professional journey? What is your personal motto in life?

The most important thing I have learned in both my personal and professional journey is that it is not about the destination, it is about the journey. We put so much pressure on ourselves and others wanting things to happen right away, but the most important thing is to learn to enjoy the journey and appreciate what you have now while you work towards attracting the other blessings you are meant to have. My motto is you achieve what you believe. In other words what you believe is what you attract. That can be good or bad. That is why it is so important to recognize what you believe and change those beliefs that do not serve you into ones that do!

With your grit and determination, you are making a considerable impact, breaking through, and serving as role models for many budding entrepreneurs. What would you want to say to our young women leaders/audience reading this?

Get connected with other like minded women, get the support and help you need as this journey is not easy, but 100% worth it. Surrounding yourself with those that will encourage, support, hold you accountable, and help you to keep going no matter what is crucial to your success. We should not have to go through this alone. We are meant to grow and learn together. Find whoever lights you up and inspires you and follow them, join their programs, learn from them. Put yourself out there and be open to the opportunities that present themselves while also being true to yourself, your values, and your intuition when it comes to investing and making moves in your business. As much as we want everyone to be humble and honest, there are some who do take advantage so be mindful when making decisions for your business. Also, do not beat yourself up when you do make mistakes as those are invaluable lessons to learn from. Lastly, always remember YOU GOT THIS!
