Welcome and Greetings My Dear Friend,
Thanks for visiting my page. I am excited that you are here. I love engaging with others and bouncing off creative ideas. I have been a serial entrepreneur for over 20 years. My passion is business and my love is people. I enjoy reading, writing, eating fine cuisine, cooking gourmet food, shopping, traveling, spending time with family and attending my boys basketball games.
You see... life hasn't always been this simple. I've been up and I've been down. But through it all, I prayed and cried and expected the best. About 12 years ago, my family and I went through the the hardest times in our lives. My husband and I were both laid off from what we thought were good jobs. As two college educated adults, we struggled to get back on our feet as the economy was headed towards a recession. We both always kept a hustle on the side, yet working full time and carrying for our young boys, we neglected to work them on a consistent basis. It wasn't until this time that we dived into our businesses of real estate and mortgage banking that 2 years later, the mortgage and real estate crisis hit. We were apart of the fall out. On the verge of losing everything we worked so hard to attain, our lives were falling apart yet again. It was at this time that I was introduced to a business that would change our lives forever. I shared it with my husband and he did not want to start another business. So I worked it by myself for years even before he would look at it. After 3 years of receiving no income and no rewards for my efforts, I heard him utter, "I told you so." That inspired me more to work hard, never give up and earn his approval with my new business. I'm happy to say that after receiving my first check, my husband was impressed. From that point on, he believed in direct sales and the opportunity it allows. We both were able to be stay at home parents for years without getting a job. It was at that point that my husband and I made the commitment to never allow a job to have that much control over our financial future.
Fast forward today, I am a small business, people development consultant who specializes in building people one obstacle at a time by showing them how to work from home and live an life without regret. I also assist with staff development and training, career consulting, HR recruitment, business development and growth, marketing, social media consulting, management and event planning for small business owners.
My strengths are my abilities to engage, reinvent, motivate and reactivate you or your group into changing how you think and work in your current and future environment.
I enjoy inspiring and motivating others through conversation. With over twenty years of solid, results producing experience in sales, management, business development and marketing, I have served well in numerous capacities of leadership and growth. My book entitled, "The Master Tip Manual to Personal Success" explains my journey and my principles which has enabled me to achieve my goals and enjoy personal and career satisfaction. It is available on Amazon and at your local bookstore.
I received my BA in business administration with a concentration in management from Clark Atlanta University and an MBA degree in business administration from Fontbonne University. I am currently pursing certification in coaching, conflict resolution as well as a PhD in advanced human behavior. I have 30 plus hours in psychology and mental health.
