Please introduce yourself and business to our readers:
My name is Lee Whetstone. I am a purpose and brand coach, mompreneur, and the founder and EIC of award winning magazine Leading with Lee.
What was the inspiration behind creating "Leading with Lee" Magazine:
I'm from Brooklyn, NY and noticed that some neighborhoods lacked career and entrepreneurship resources. I wanted to give back by creating a platform where aspiring creatives had the opportunity to expose themselves to personal and professional development through our content and exclusive interviews. I also wanted to support black small business owners and artists by promoting and marketing their businesses on my platform to increase their brand visibility. As a result, we have featured businesses and brands from the United States to Nigeria! Our guest features landed new leads, clients, speaking engagements, and other media recognition after featuring with us. Our readers also receive a plethora of great content and resources.
Share a bit about your own purpose journey, and how you gained the courage to pursue your passions:
My purpose journey was one heck of a journey lol. I always seeked happiness and validation from the jobs I had, relationships, and friendships. I had to take a step back to ask myself, what am I here for? What makes me happy? How do I find peace? I started to meditate, cut loose toxic relationships, jobs, and situations. I also developed new habits and got intentional about where I wanted to be in life. Once I realized what I was here for, things started to change for the better.
