What inspired you to launch the 'Inner Beauty Reigns' brand?
We can’t avoid trials and conflict as we experience this life. Inner Beauty Reigns was inspired by the realization that we are not defined by those trials, but instead are molded into something better as we embrace and live out each lesson. As we gain wisdom and understanding, we must allow the best version of ourselves to reign, from the inside out.
What top 3 messages do you share with women regarding self confidence?
Confidence is first rooted in knowing your creator. The more in tune you are with God, the more you will be in tune with yourself. Secondly, confidence can’t be feigned. Either you have it or you don’t. Be intentional about developing your level of confidence. Lastly, confidence is about owning who you are and what you do! Be unapologetic about who God created you to be!
What is next for you in 2019?
We have The Courage To Walk Away: 30 Day Devotional which will be released in January. Look for announcements for monthly events in metro Atlanta to help women get in engaged in activities involving self-care, community service and personal development workshops.
