What Services / Products Does Your Business Provide?

I'm an author and have a book: Fuck That Cape: The Grown Woman's Guide to Putting Herself First. I've also started working with black women individually and in groups around healing their wounds.

What Values Define Your Business?

Brutal honesty, listening to my intuition, being of service, having a long-term vision, and organization.

How Long Have You Been In Business?

I started business and branding coaching three years ago, but then I realized that my business was hitting a wall because I was doing work that looked good on the outside but was empty.  I realized I didn't believe I could create a business around healing and spirituality, so I wrote the book first and earlier this year started building a healing community.

What Has Been The Toughest Part About Being In Business For Yourself?

One of the hardest parts is managing my time. I'm a full-time single mom of a son, I work a day job and I'm building my business.  I don't want to give up my dreams and I want to be a good mom. There was a lot of conflict there that's leveling out now that hes' getting older (almost 11). Another difficult part is being a one-woman-show. I'm the branding, marketing, VA, content creator, everything. That slows down my progress and I'm making peace with that, too. I'm realizing that as long as I'm being of true service, it will all work out.

What’s Your Greatest Professional Achievement? 

Writing and publishing my first book. I did it while working a full-time job and raising my son. I wanted to write a book since I was 17. I start and stop so many projects and this was the first time I saw something to the end since I graduated from college 20 years ago.

What Woman Inspires You And Why?

I have really been stanning over Layla Saad, Rachel Cargle and Catrice Jackson this year and how hard they are going for Black women and snatching racist white women's wigs.

What Will Be The Biggest Challenge For The Generation Of Black Women Behind You?

The biggest challenge will be Black women not believing financial and educational success are the same thing as being healed from their wounds and trauma. It's been so long sense we've been applauded and that can be dangerous if we don’t see the value of building a strong Spiritual life.
