Success Does Not Happen By Accident – How You Can Attend Act Like A Success 2017

I am a member of the Act Like A Success Social Media Team and they provided me with compensation for this event. All thoughts and opinions expressed are mine. Two years ago I attended Steve Harvey’sΒ SOAR Retreat in Miami. When the opportunity to be part of the blogger team was presented to me, I was actually on vacation in Grenada and considered not making the trip to Miami. I am so happy I quickly came to my senses and decided…

Why You Need To Stop Waiting To START

Things have been pretty quiet on the blog these last few weeks. I planned to “come back” starting March 1st but I decided to take my own advice and stop waiting to start πŸ˜‰ Last week while searching my name on Facebook (I do this periodically), I came across a post I made almost 6 years ago when I uploaded my first YouTube video. I could not help but laugh at the video. It was very basic, but it did…

#WhenSilenceSpeaks Writing Challenge: A Different World

I entered a different world today. Today I announced my first, solo, live online training (also known as a webinar).

On February 15th, I’ll be sharing how to create an additional stream of income by…

Inspiring A New Generation: AT&T Encourages Students To Pursue STEM at #HiddenFigures Screening

“I’m so happy this story is being told. I had NO idea.” These are the exact words I uttered the first time I saw Hidden Figures (at an advanced screening) last year. I laughed, I cried and I got angry, but most of all I left the movie inspired by these amazing women who paved the way for so many. In case you have not seen it, “Hidden Figures shares the incredible untold story of Katherine G. Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan…

How I Overcame Fear, Doubt & Self-Sabotage To Achieve My Goals

Fear (and its cousins doubt & self-sabotage) are three subject areas I am very familiar with. I have been very transparent here on the blog about my struggles with my fear of failing. Fear is a normal human emotion that we all experience. In some instances, the fact that we can feel fear keeps us safe from potentially dangerous situations. In other situations, we can be so crippled by fear that we don’t even act, but instead, we choose to…
