What we are familiar with we cease to see.

I’ve driven down the same highway for well over 10 years on the way home. Yet the other day I saw a house that I had never seen on that very route, that was so beautiful. How on earth had I missed it?

A friend of mine had an entire life change. We’d lost touch..which really means we lost the opportunity to create memories. Although she is much wiser at the present… there are some fabulous  things about her that were there before. How on earth had I missed it?

His legs are a little bow. So much more distinct now than ever before. Did it occur over time… How on earth had I missed it?

This woman is so powerful, influential, focused and strategic. And she had been in my life for so long. How on earth had I missed it?

She has worked tirelessly, and intentionally,  lovingly and sacrificial for the family for so many years. How on earth had I miss it?

I really had a great opportunity right before my eyes. How on earth had I missed it?

I really didn’t realize that you were hurting so bad. How on earth had I missed it?

YOU are important!

wpid-wp-1407000670549.jpegYour unique purpose is important! With all the things you are responsible for one would think you have enough going on to experience fulfillment.  Yet a yearning for something may still be present. You were created with a purpose, specific and unique to you. Your life journey is comprised of a series of events intended to connect you to your purpose. Clarity on your purpose will be your unique driving force in your daily life. It will connect all the intricate details to your journey. Connection to your purpose will improve your relationships and your outlook on life. It is the very thread to your being. When I notice people who have not yet connected to their purpose, I detect a restlessness and uncertainty in the way they go about life. This is definitely not a strike against them. Just an inner yearning called to make them aware of the imbalance that occurs when they are not fulfilling their purpose. A still small urgency to redirect path…to purpose. Today, take some time to focus on YOU. Just a few extra minutes for yourself. A nice stroll, tub bath instead of shower, a ride out in the car. Take a few extra minutes to consider YOU today. One of the greatest ways of connecting to your purpose is through reflecting. I know, everybody needs you, however, figuring out YOU is the best way to completely and wholly offer your best to those people and things you care about and love. Your unique individual purpose is important!

How you handle it makes all the difference

Making right decisions when things don’t always go my way is a lesson I have been reminded of often in life and in my business endeavors. On Saturday, at the moment that I prepared a local event, “A vision For Your Life and Business, that did not transpire, I was reminded that “how I handle it makes all the difference.”

Upon arrival to the venue for the class, I and the staff hired to help set up for the event , were unable to get in the building.   AHHHH! No one was available to let us in!  After 30 minutes of contemplating several things.(which was now 30 minutes before the class participants would begin arriving) “Did they get the date wrong, (they are normally prompt and on time when I’ve used them in the past), Is everything okay with the staff assigned to let us in?” Anything could have happened! “What about those that are participating, who have rearranged their day and looking to get unstuck? (some driving a distance to attend), OH MY, I made an administrative decision. I didn’t know if any one was going to be available at all to let us in. No one was returning my call,  I CANCELLED my class. I called, emailed and contacted everyone attending . That was a hard pill to swallow. I feel strongly about delivering what I say and I value people’s time.

I could have very easily gotten extremely upset with the person in charge of letting us in the building, the money  I had spent on marketing materials with date specific information, just a number of things!  At that point, I realized there wasn’t much that I could do about the situation that had already occurred. I actually decided not to even go over extreme details on how they will compensate me for the error until today. I got in my vehicle, went home, grabbed a bag and went to visit a friend for the weekend. We had a great time!

Yes, I was extremely disappointed. I did not want to disappoint anyone. I was looking forward to sharing and building with my followers and others interested in coming to class.

I share this to remind you that  life happens , inclusive of things that our beyond our control and how we handle it will make all the difference.

The grace that occurred during that time is one that will bring even more value to the class on the reschedule date. I found out moments after, although the class is for everyone, my class qualified as CE(continued education) credits for licensed cosmetologist.  I am even more excited about rescheduling the class. What a blessing in disguise!

Things happen.. beyond our control. It’s a part of life. You just pick up the pieces and keep moving. Hit the restart button and do it again. #Growth.

How you handle it makes all the difference!

Too Tired to dream again?


Is your normal routine causing you to miss out on life!

There are certain things that must be done daily, just to maintain. But often, in the mist of it all, you can forget to live!

Whether its work, home, spouse or children, life’s responsibilities can keep you pretty busy. Before you know it, 5-10 years have gone by and you forgot to live. You can be bombarded with responsibilities, that you continue to do, because you don’t want to disappoint others or because you signed up for it (5 years ago). Pay attention to what you have committed to that is no longer serving purpose in your life for where you are now.
No one wants to have regrets about all the things they wanted to do and never took the time to incorporate into their busy schedules. You can get so caught up in your routine that you forget to dream or imagine life being any different.
Don’t get caught in the bondage of normalcy. Normalcy can fool you into thinking that “this is what you will be doing for the rest of your life”. That this is all that life has to offer you for rest of your life. It’s time you started investing in yourself!

Life has so much more to offer.
I remember a time in my life where I  was just going through the motions. Not embracing anything new , just trying to support what I was already responsible for. Now that I have clarity, I get a surge of exhaustion just thinking about it.  I started reflecting and realized that some of the things in my routine were no longer important to where I was at the time, nor where I was headed. I began using my imagination and vowing to LIVE life, not just exist. One huge thing I did, I took a class in Florida that changed my life!  It was obvious that my vision was cloudy. I  then devised a system for my life to GET UNSTUCK. I knew I needed to invest in myself.

Guess what? This system I devised works for any one willing to apply it to their lives. Homemakers, hairstylist, small business owners, aspiring entrepreneurs. The principles in this system just work. I’ve taught this system before at a leadership conference for business owners, clergymen and everyday people looking for their next level, I have now turned the system into an upgraded class and made it relevant for RIGHT NOW. The world is forever changes and it’s important that we can adjust and change as well. Old systems don’t always work in new seasons.

I’ll be incorporating this system as a bonus in my upcoming MIND YOUR BUSINESS POWER CLASS this October. This will help you jump-start your new year. Success is merely planned results.

Did this year look too much like last year for you?  Make a conscious decision to invest in YOURSELF. An investment that always pays you back!

Save the date for my next upcoming class. It’s never to late for a fresh start in life and business! October 25, 2015 at the Holiday Inn Express in Greenville, NC!

Don’t just go through the motions. Began dreaming again. Live your best life.

Invest in yourself.

Your Best Life!

This is a letter written in love… to you. I care about your life.

I’ve been through that phase in life where most of my conversation was about the things that I want, and what I dreamed of, what I hope to do, when I get the money. But when I really, really got serious, I made some sacrifices in my life. I stop saying I couldn’t afford certain things that I knew I needed to move forward. I took a good look at my finances, how I was living my life and what I was doing with my time . Getting serious was not an option anymore. Deciding to make some decisions about what was most important was no longer a thought… but a definitive choice.

I went without cable for years because I realize that there was not much to cable  that was going to move me to my next place in life.

Yes, no cable. You have to make some decisions, not excuses.

I saved close to 1200 dollars a year with no cable. I had more time and money to invest in the things that were important to my future. Because I made that sacrifice,  I found the ROKU system which allowed me to stream television programs with no monthly fee!  My sacrifice led to another solution! 

I’ve learned that the things I sacrifice for the good of my life and family ALWAYS lead to greater.  Those years of struggle were disheartening to know that I needed something to help me move forward, under $100 dollars, and couldn’t get it. The clothes in my closet, that last elaborate meal at a restaurant, that last social party I attended, non of that was moving me to higher heights.

Whenever you set your mind and your actions in the right direction you will be able to move forward with grace and the things you truly need are made available. What you give up for the good of a greater life will only be for a season. You have to see past your right now and find some sound direction for where you are going. You will not sacrifice forever, but you could be doing the same thing you are doing now forever… if you don’t get serious.

Years ago I totaled my SUV, at which time I had a huge decision to make. I hadn’t had a new car in years and the new car smell was calling my name. Do I get a new car and a new monthly payment, or do I get something that I can pay for in cash and use the money that I would use on a car payment , for things that were more important, to sow into my destiny and quality of life? I chose the latter.

I see people all the time with financial trouble for small things, unable to do things that take them to greater and I know if they start with what they have, make sacrifices and decisions, they would not have to turn down opportunities for greater because they can’t afford it. I know how it feels. I was once there. But once I got serious, decided that I was comfortable with who I was, didn’t need to impress anyone, I made the best decisions for my life.

What is really going on? The part that we feel no one knows, the parts that no one sees but YOU.

You  can get so caught up in your normal routine, your normal struggle and miss moments and opportunities because you are investing in the wrong things. Wrong investing, not just with your money, but also with your time. Is it enhancing where you want to go and what you need to get there?

What you spend your time and your money on is important to your future. If you are struggling  with your vision for your life/ business, that new pair of shoes or a new outfit, that is really more about impressing someone else other than yourself, will not benefit you more than what you could invest your money/time in that would take you to the destination in which you desire. Instead, could you spend that money on a class or event that will help increase your knowledge to increase your income or grow your business?

I say this with love:

You have to sit down and get really, really serious with yourself,  your finances, and your time. Is what you are investing in worth more than the type of life you ultimately want to live? Could you sacrifice something today that will get you closer to your destination,  your purpose, your vision, your dreams, and your goals?

The people you see who lifestyle you admire, whether it’s their business, marriage, family life or personal life, all made sacrifices to obtain those things or relationships. Success requires sacrifice and choices. When you get serious, you will  evaluate how you are spending your time. Some of the time  you spend watching TV is actually time you could spend investing in your business.(taking a class, reading about your class, developing personal self-improvement) Some of the time that you spend at every local  party or event is time that you can spend on your future. It does not mean that you will go without those things forever, but until you get to your destination, you need to get serious and make some sacrifices and some decisions. Figure out what your life or business is lacking , what would you like your life to look like? What’s needed, what is going to get you to your destination? Figure that out and DO THAT.  You don’t want to have regrets later in life because we weren’t willing to have a few years, months or days of delayed gratification! It will save you some tears and frustration in the long wrong. It’s only for a season!

With Love,

From My experience to yours!

PIP “Preparation is Powerful”

If someone offered you $10,000 dollars to tell them about the business you wanted to start and show them at least a first-year plan for it, today, could you do it?

Many people do things at night like ironing clothes, packing lunch, maybe even making lists to prepare for the next day.

Some start in January saving money for the Christmas items they want to buy friends and loved ones for the upcoming year.  They do all of those things because they have a level of faith. They believe that tomorrow and Christmas are coming. But, how much preparation do you make for that balanced abundant life that you visualize?

Where is your faith for that?

The dream of debt freedom, a new home, a new career, a new business, anticipation of marriage, a restored marriage, or an awesome family life? Are you preparing to receive those things or just talking about it as if it will magically just happen? If you’re thinking that it will just happen in due time, I’m sorry, but you are wrong. Maybe you don’t fully believe that they are possible,   or that you even deserve them. It is possible and you do deserve it. Surely,  if you believed you would be making preparation.
Thinking of starting a new business? Have you done your research on the cost, location, or how to get started?

It will always be just a dream until you start.

What are you waiting on?

Believing for debt freedom? Change your thinking about how and what you spend your money on.

Many daily choices you make that you are not conscious of are affecting your financial freedom.

Believing for a new home?

Take your family out to look at new homes. Establish a vision for what you want. Prepare a budget based on what you need in a home and what you can afford. Set goals towards saving for it. Start now!

If a door opened that connected to your vision and dreams for your life, would you be prepared to walk through the door?

What are you doing to prepare for your future?

No more dreaming without action.

You would be surprised at the resources available for your dreams once you begin to prepare to make them happen.


PIP..Preparation is Powerful!

Prepare for the things you expect…that’s half the battle! #Iseeyourgreatness
