With a bruised ego and business reputation. Forced to start over from nothing. Coming to grips that it was time to face the root of the bad habits and poor decisions. I felt the need to reinvent myself. From the inside out. I had no idea the journey would lead to addressing issues from my teen years. This was the place where the bad habits and broken confidence was unconsciously stunting my growth. What I desired to see happen overnight became a 2 year journey. And it was in this place of reckoning “The Power of I Am 21 Day Journey to a Renewed You” was given birth. Rehabilitated from defeat, lack and brokenness. It was time to step out and share the experience of evolving from a lowly spirit into A Woman of Empowerment.
I was given a chance to redeem myself in the business world. I was given the opportunity to impact and equip Small Business Owners while working here in Houston for a local firm which catered to women business owners. The Marketing Chicks as a Business Consultant. I was able to teach those business owners what not to do. My time there revealed just how many woman were being effected by fear and struggling to live out their dreams. I knew in that moment my journey was not only for me. This became an “Us” mission. I realize now that everything that I had experienced was basically a blueprint. If I had a heart condition I would visit a cardiologist and not a dentist. This journey certified me as an expert in overcoming the low blows of life. It is now my obligation to share it with the world. Once the outer reflection of my life begin to look how I felt inwardly. I knew it was time. This book is only the beginning of The Power Series.
I now move forward with boldness and a love so pure I feel it’s contagious. I’m so glad when all else failed that I never gave up on me. And now I’m ready to teach and show others just how valuable they are. Here I was feeling entitled in my previous failed business. A Woman’s Worth Productions desiring to entertain and empower others when I myself was in need. We can’t give away something we ourselves lack. It’s like writing a check on an overdrawn account. It won’t clear. But this time around my emotional bank account is "Paid in Full". It was imperative for me to be more than just a public success and a private failure. I realize that now. And I’m excited about the movement I believe will come forth from “The Power of I Am”
What motivated you to become an indie author?
My passion for writing. Since the age of 8 I have written poems and short stories. I loved how adventurous writing allowed my personality to be. As the years past I begin to write stage plays and most recently my very first screen play. As I awaited this transition from stage to film. I thought it would be fitting to write my life lessons and pass them on to inspire others.
