1. What does Women's History Month mean to you?
Women’s History month is a national opportunity for the accomplishments and achievements of women to be shared and heard all over the world. There are several notable women who have made small and large contributions to make the world a better place. As a woman I’m inspired to learn and glean from women who’ve created a path for me to walk in and courageously share my story and make a positive impact in history. I salute all the women who have made history and are currently making history for us women today to exemplify. We can become our best because the Great Women in History provided us with the examples to follow in. No Voice No Power!
2. How are you using your gifts to propel women forward?
My mission as the CEO of Transformation Empowerment Solutions, Founder & Executive Director of Transformation GEMS Women’s Empowerment Center, a Non-Profit Organization that focuses on Empowering Women to Start and Accelerate Businesses by providing Mentoring, Training, Resources, Collaborative office space, conference and popup shops to test, launch and accelerate their business in the community. I use my gifts as a Transformational Strategist, Serial Entrepreneur, and She-esteem designer to catapult women to identify their gifts to create an income that empowers their family, community and create legacies. The organization has a business membership to accelerate, collaborate and promote women in business.
3. What advice would you share with readers who are hesitant to pursue their passion?
The time to pursue your dreams and discover your gifts is now! There is no perfect time, so do it afraid. It takes courage to become your best self and if you are waiting for the perfect time to start, you may not ever see the opportunity. Start where you are and begin to write down what that business or opportunity would look like if you had everything to complete it. Write down everything you need to accomplish what “YOU” see yourself as and everyday do something that moves you closer to the finish line. If you continue doing this process everyday and seek wise counsel from successful others, read books, magazines and surround yourself with others who are successful, and one day you will see yourself in the place you saw yourself at from the beginning of believing in your dream life coming to pass right before your eyes.
4. How can readers support your efforts in 2019?
I would love for the women to sign up for my free app TransformationGEMSBEU, the app has several wonderful tools right at their fingertips, daily quotes delivered right to their phone, and an opportunity for the women to promote their events, conferences and webinars. The app is located in the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store. Ladies, visit my website at www.transformationgems.com and learn about the organization, join the monthly membership site that has a ton of educational and promotional resources created especially for the woman who wants to start, grow and accelerate their business, share their resources, promote their events or maybe become an affiliate location.
5. What is your favorite inspirational quote?
I am not what happened to me. I am what I choose to become.
Do not judge. You don’t know what storm I’ve asked her to walk through. GOD
