What is your take on spirituality?
My spirituality plays a major role in my life. I didn’t always have a spiritual connection with God and so I was in a place that wasn’t always the best place for me. It wasn’t until I realized that something was missing from my life and it couldn’t be found in people or things. I knew that I had to find a personal relationship with God and allow him to order my steps. I started seeking God more as I became older and wanted to see a change in my life. I began journaling and writing my thoughts down and writing to God to tell him what I wanted in my life. Being spiritually grounded keeps me humbled and appreciative of how far along I have come in my life.
What is your family and business?
My family means the world to me. I am married with two children a 22 year old young man and a 10 year old daughter. I am also blessed with two bonus young men ages 27 and 19 . They keep me on my toes and provide the support that I need as a wife, mother, and entrepreneur. I use to think that I could not have a successful business because I was a wife and mother. I learned how to do it all because of the support I received from my family. We make business trips a family vacation so they can experience what I do and be a part of it. It makes it much easier to have my family with me as I travel and explore new opportunities. I know how it feels to think you aren’t able to achieve everything that you set out to do, but it is attainable. Women are strong and resilient and I didn’t realize the power I had until I was reminded of what I was capable of creating.
What is your take on staying healthy to be successful?
My health is very important to me. I decided to leave my corporate job in 2018 when my health started to fail me. I would have headaches and break out in hives due to the amount of stress I was under. I stopped allowing others to dictate what my life should be and started to make changes that was best for me. I had the support of my husband to leave my job because of the effect it had on my well-being. I advocate to women the importance of mental health and wellness so they too can make the best choices for themselves. I unraveled the myth of women not being able to support a family and a successful business because it would be too stressful for us. When you have the support and tools needed to run your business, it makes life much easier for you mentally, physically and emotionally. My spirituality plays a critical part in my mental health as well. Staying connected to God and knowing he gives me strength allows me to stay healthy and focused.
