I Am Woman
Tell us about Yourself
I am the CreatHER and Chief Empowerment Officer of The Art of Single: Confessions of a Single Sista, a blog for single women. Through my blog, I use my own personal experiences as a way to fulfill my passions of helping women heal, as well as getting them to recognize their greatness that's inside.
When Lifes Give You Lemons
How would you turn a negative situation into something positive?
Have you ever seen the meme that goes, "Falls down the stairs. Me: Wow I got down those stairs fast!"? That pretty much describes my outlook on life and negative situations. Instead of focusing on what went wrong, I always look at what went right.
What and/or Who inspired you to follow your dream?
Honestly, I was tired of seeing women, particularly single women broken and in pain. I've been broken more times than I care to count, and just wanted to create a space to show them that they aren't alone.
Keeping Up With the Bosses
Tell us about Your Business
The Art of Single's mission is: changing the narrative of singleness and inspiring women to live their best lives, through one confession at a time. The goal behind the space is to speak to the whole woman, and not just the ones who are seeking companionship. I don't teach women how to become wives, or encourage them to be content in their singleness, but rather how to make the best out their single seasons. I want to show women that the love they desire isn't found in their future spouses, but rather within themselves.
What advice would you give to an upcoming Entrepreneur?
Being that I'm an up and coming entrepreneur, I'm still learning everyday. But one thing I will say is just be true to your passion, recognize your purpose, and always remember that there is someone out there who needs what you have to offer. Those key points will keep you motivated when times get rough and you feel like you want to quit.

What's your definition of Women Empowerment?
My definition of women empowerment is taking everything you have learned and pouring it into the next sister that comes along. Understanding you're a leader, and that your success determines how others will rise behind you. And lastly, operating in your most authentic self, because it is the greatest teacher one will ever have.

What advice can you give yourself?
Never be afraid to ask for help. Honor your spirit, and walk away from anything that no longer resonates with it. Remain humble. Take risks. Explore new opportunities. Live. Your. Life.
