Introduce yourself and your business:
My name is Gracia Collins Rich. I am an author, journalist with Formidable Woman Magazine, freelance writer and founder of the Broken Dolls Initiative. I am from the small town of Rains, South Carolina and it is my purpose to lead women to the promises God has for them and the best versions of themselves through my writing and mentorship.
How are you using your talents to propel women forward?
I am using the talent of my writing by creating books, blogs and other writings to encourage, inspire and empower women to see who they really are. I am also using my talent of mentorship through my company, The Broken Dolls Initiative to let women know that even though we are broken, we can be made whole and the everyone deserves a second chance. Nothing is so bad that you can't come back from. There is always beauty from ashes.
What advice would you share with women that want to enter your industry?
The advice that I would give any woman that chooses this industry or any other is to always be YOURSELF. You may be encouraged by someone, you may see someone as a role model, but to truly excel in any industry, you have to be your true, authentic self.
What is next for you in 2019 & how can readers support your efforts?
This year I will release my full length novel, Sometimes I Cry, which I would describe as a complete revolution of a woman's life as she comes to grips with whom she really is. It will be available this winter at www.graciacrich.com and booksellers near you. The Broken Dolls Initiative, LLC will have events for young girls and women in the fall of the year. All will be announced at my website. There are exciting things to come.
