Embracing The Detours: When God Takes You On The Scenic Route

Embracing the Detours: When God takes you on the scenic route through life. This one sentence could possibly sum up my whole life, thus far. While this post isn’t about my life story, this phrase has pretty much been the story of my life for the first quarter of 2017. Last week I did a #PassTheScope/Facebook LIVE video titled, “When The SOAR is Slow“. It was partly my first quarter in review, as I reflected on the first three months…

Making A Difference Through The Gift of Light #GiveBrighter

I lived with my maternal grandparents from birth until I was about 8 years old. They lived in a small, rural village and for part of time that I lived there, there were no electrical lines which meant we didn’t have access to electricity. When the sun went down it was extremely dark and as a child growing up in Grenada, I remember being scared of the dark. When I got home from school I knew I had to get…

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…

I Have Fallen Hard For This Wig – Chantel Lace Front Edge

So I think I may be falling for wigs. No surprise there, right? As you already know *doing* my hair is not at the top of my priority list these days. The days of me spending hours twisting and curlingΒ and doing all amazing the things that you can possibly do with your natural hair (on a regular basis)Β are few and far between. Of course, that does not mean that I don’t want fabulous hair days so I still take care…

#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). I’ve been a guest on a webinar before but I’ve never done one completely on my own. I’m excited to share on a topic that I get numerous questions about, and one that I’ve had almost 2 years of experience (trials, errors, and successes) with. On February 15th, I’ll be sharing how to create an additional stream of income by…
