See Why BOSS Keisha McCotry Is A Women Of Power

A lot of words come to mind when you think about what personifies a Woman of Power. Give her confidence, charisma, strength with a teaspoon of personality and there you have it, a Woman of Power. For me, I feel a Woman of Power is much deeper than that definition.  As we go through this wonderful journey we call life, we all experience so many emotions. We feel love, hurt, happiness, pain and many others. As a true Woman of Power you must take every experience in life as a lesson, don’t play victim and spend more time learning and growing from your experiences. Only at that time, will you be able to fully grow as a woman and step into your future.  A Woman of Power is a woman that never stops dreaming and will do everything in her power to make sure those dreams come true. The best way for me to accurately express what I am saying is by telling my own story and why I feel I am a Woman of Power.

I was born in a very small town in Mississippi. Even at a very early age, I always knew that I wanted to be an entrepreneur and I wanted to truly experience life. Two weeks after graduating from Mississippi State University with a degree in Communications, I moved to Atlanta, GA with no job prospects at all. All I had was a pocket full of dreams that was ready to dominate my life. Within my 10 years of living in Atlanta, I started my own company called Prominence Marketing Group. I had the opportunity to work on several national entertainment projects and garner a well respected brand for myself. I also achieved a Masters of Business Administration & a Masters of Human Resource Management degree. Although I did accomplish a lot, I still did not feel complete. I honestly felt like I was settling and not really reaching my true potential. I woke up one day and said it is time for me to leave Atlanta and two days later I left. 

As I drove down the interstate all I could do was smile because I knew God was leading me to the next stage of my journey. I had no clue what was next for me, all I had was that same pocket full of dreams, and I knew those dreams would lead the way. Currently I live in New York City, the city where dreams do and can come true. I feel motivated more so now than ever and I stay 100% dedicated on making sure I live each day to the fullest and never settling with any aspect of my life. This is what makes me a Woman of Power. I am truly blessed to have some very successful people in my life that I can honestly say are my friends. They encourage, support and nurture all of my dreams and aspirations.  I encourage everyone that is reading this to NEVER STOP DREAMING and go after your true destiny. It awaits you.
