I Am Woman
Tell us about Yourself
I have been told I am a fighter because of having Sickle Cell Disease. I am a go-getter. If I want something in life, I am going to work hard to get it. I am also passionate at what I was blessed with which is writing. As an author of several books and a blogger, I find passion while doing it. I am also determined. Whatever goals I set for myself, I strive hard and motivate myself to reach my goals in life. Nothing shall stop me from dreaming.
When Life Gives You Lemons
How would you turn a negative situation into something positive?
By encouragement and meditating. I hate dealing with negativity of all sorts, so I dismiss the situation on a positive note and just speak positive thoughts to myself to cover my soul, heart and body for the negative energy.
What and/or Who inspired you to follow your dream?
Honestly my parents are the ones who inspired me to follow my dreams. I started writing at a very early age of nine and since then I knew God had blessed me with a special gift. Being published has been nothing but blessings to see my name on a product I have created.
Keeping Up With the Bosses
Tell us about Your Business
As an author of six books, I like to inspire, encourage and motivate through each one of my books, whether it's poetry, urban Christian, my children's books or fiction, I want people to take away a powerful message. My other business is Lil' Woman on a Mission Writing Service, LLC which basically provides writing and planning services for non-profits, small businesses, small charities, authors, bloggers and new writers. I created this business to give back to people who need writing tools to bring a little bit more creation in their business. I coach and consultant individuals to get a little creative when reaching their targeted audience.
What advice would you give to an upcoming Entrepreneur?
