Introduce yourself and profession to our readers:
Necole F. Turner is an author, publisher, business coach and empowerment speaker. She spent most of her life trying to find her place and purpose in life while working in various fields to help support and nurture her family. Her pivotal moment came when she found a passion for sharing the gift of learning. Necole eventually found that in teaching she was able to motivate and inspire students to become their best.
Necole’s motto of “the best thing that we have to offer is the gift of knowledge to all we encounter” is something that applies in her everyday life. Necole also enjoys journaling and found she could share her observations about the interaction of women with one another. Her thoughts ultimately became Reflections of the Butterfly: Affirmations for Empowerment, her first book, which empowers others to “transform” into whom they were meant to be, that BEAUTIFUL BUTTERFLY!
What inspired your pursuits?
For a long time I did not know that I was beautiful. I did not grow up hearing that from any women in my life. I was attending a church in Alabama and there was a lady there who used to greet me “Hello Beautiful” each time that she saw me. I don’t think she ever knew how much that meant to me or the impact that it had on my life. But from that day forward I promised myself that I would greet every woman with a positive affirmation such as “Hello Beautiful.” You never know what that can do for another woman to hear that being spoken to them. As a result, I wanted to bring that message of “beautiful” to every woman, much like the “Butterfly Effect”…causing a change of energy in YOUR life that it is felt around the world so another woman would want to experience it too.
What advice would you have for those interested in a similar pursuit?
One word of advice I would offer is to "be true to who you really are". In a time where we all want to assimilate or do what others are doing, remember that you are uniquely created and the journey is specifically yours.
What is next for your business/brand in 2016?
The "Butterfly Effect" is the propensity of a ENERGY system to cause a wave a change simultaneously in DIFFERENT parts of the world. . by merely flapping their wings, BUTTERFLIES can make that change. With this idea in mind, I want to introduce "THE BEAUTIFUL BUTTERFLY PROJECT", a movement to inspire and uplift our spirits, to become innovators of of style in our personal brand of life. Why not make enough POSITIVE change in YOUR life to cause OTHERS to want do the same? My goal is to have the spirit of BEAUTIFUL touch the lives of every woman of any age..no matter where they are in life. So, I am currently spreading the word through "The Beautiful Butterfly Project" to girls area schools.
