1.    What were some obstacles that you faced in the beginning process of starting your business or career? Some obstacles I faced at the beginning of initiating my business were a lack of confidence and self-esteem and refusal to seek help.  I worked in the healthcare industry for 23 years and never even thought about running my own business. The only confidence I had was in testing body fluids for disease and drawing blood. I didn’t believe in myself, and when things didn’t go as planned, I gave up many times. I didn’t realize that everything starts and ends with me. If I don’t believe in self, my products and business, no one else would. Many days I cried as I knew I had gifts that the world needed to experience, but my self-esteem and confidence weren't aligned with my vision. It took years of self-investment, personal development and soul work to not only believe in me but believe in the gifts God gave me.
I refused to delegate work as I wanted to do everything and that resulted in fatigue and reduced energy. I declined to appoint work as in my mind that meant I was a failure when in reality; in business, no one can do everything as we all need help. When I finally removed my pride and asked for help, my business elevated as I gained clarity on precisely what I wanted to present to the Universe.
2.    What inspired you to break into your particular industry? I was inspired to break into my particular industry as my personal experiences are of sexual abuse, rape, incest, and domestic violence. In the midst of healing and sharing my story nine years ago, I realized there were millions of people who not only experienced abuse but had no idea how to heal, love and believe in themselves. I wanted people to understand the importance of pain, forgiveness, and accountability. What’s more, in pain there is purpose if we choose to remove the victim-mindset and accept that we are all creators or co-creators of our experiences. Lastly, it was important for people to know and understand that our past pain should not be the wall that blocks success yet be the building blocks to gain victory.
3.    How do you balance your personal and professional life or have you been able to find a balance? I balance my personal and professional life by staying true to myself. I am first and must remain full to give to others. I do not take clients during the early part of the day as that is my time to meditate, exercise, detox and feed my body. I keep an open line of communication with my family whether I am purposing or not. My husband and son know my purpose schedule as they respect it. With that, we schedule time for each other and even if that means moving clients around or not planning any for a particular day or two. 
4.    What is an inspirational quote that you live by? One of the inspirational quotes I live by is, pain is power that leads to passion and discovering your purpose.
5.    Who were some influential people or mentors that helped or encouraged you along the way? Dr. Anthony Gantt, Rita Stewart, James Dentley, Stephen Pierce and Marc Haygood.
6.    What are your “must-haves” to keep your career or business going strong? Some of my must-haves to keep my business going strong are confidence, patience, transparency, mental toughness, consistent content, stable relationships, my cell phone, and computer.
7. What is your definition of a BOSS? My definition of a Boss is someone who maintains accountability for their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. What’s more, a Boss understands to grow and create more wealth and abundance; we must be open to receive it. Bosses understand humility, transparency, and authenticity.
