Tell us more about your Journey as a Woman in Business or Ministry , What was your motivation?

My motivation was my upbringing and my son. I did not want him to ever experience what it felt like to be evicted, to be without food, or to be in a dark house without electricity. I became determined to beat the odds to break the spirit of poverty in my family. As I journeyed through life, trying to push past barriers and turn obstacles into opportunities, I discovered I couldn’t do it on my own. That’s when I turned back to my roots and recommitted my life to Christ. In Him, I discovered I can do all things through Him who strengths me. In Him I discovered who I was, and in Him I discovered He had a purpose and plan for my life.

What advice can you give other inspiring Entrepreneur?

  1. Entrepreneurship is a faith walk. You are going to need to hear from God, trust God, and obey the leading of the Holy Spirit.
  2. Believe in yourself! Find some empowering scriptures and affirmations because you are going to need them when doubt tries to creep in.
  3. Budget and invest your resources wisely, including your time. Focus on the most important things that will grow your business and outsource menial tasks that will consume your day.
  4. You will work harder than you did on your 9-5, especially while building. Do not neglect yourself. Self-care is critical. When you feel overwhelmed with stress, take some time to decompress and revitalize yourself. You will not be any good for your business or anyone else if you are not well. So take care of yourself!
