Happy Black Business Month! Please introduce yourself and business.
LR Wilson a CEO, Empowerment Lifestyle Coach, Motivational Speaker, Blogger, Author, Plus Size Model, Ghostwriter, Lead Media Correspondent, and Columnist for Pretty Women Hustle Magazine as well as part of the core team. Her most important roles of all are mother and NaNa.
She was a teenage mother and gave birth to her first child, a daughter, at 16 years old. The marriage following the birth of her daughter dissipated less than two years later. She went on to marry again at age 27 and out of the union three sons were born. Some 20+ years later, she found herself back in front of a judge as the second marriage dissolved. Prior to the official divorce, she suffered from depression, suicidal ideation, drug, and alcohol abuse to cope with the pain.
Through it all, she was able to find herself again! In 2020 she became the proud owner of LR WILSON CONSULTING LLC where she is an Empowerment Lifestyle Coach and Motivational Speaker. LR WILSON CONSULTING LLC offers Empowerment Life Coaching Services for Coachees in their personal and professional lives with a focus on goal setting. Goal setting is done through Empowerment Blueprinting which is a unique concept offered exclusively at LR WILSON CONSULTING LLC.
She is the founder and creator of S.H.E.E. (Sisters Healing Evolving and Empowered) which is a group on Facebook. Out of this group, she published her first book the S.H.E.E. JOURNAL in 2019 which is a journal of affirmations instilling self-love in every reader.
In 2020, she launched the Empowerment Planner with monthly goal sheets and
Empowerment Coaching Worksheets. Yes Girl Yes! Goodie Boxes hit the ground in 2021. Goodie boxes have unique products to EMPOWER each consumer. Every other month a different themed box of goodies arrives. Yes Girl Yes!! was featured on Cora Jakes Coleman Showcase and Off The Wire.
LR WILSON is no stranger to the media spotlight. She appeared as a Speaker on Soul Circle Bootcamp in 2020. Followed by appearances on the Real Talk Podcast with T. Holmes and The Chronicles of Doing Too Much with Angel Riley in 2021.
In addition, she released two Ebooks "How To Live An Empowered Life Guide" and "My Anxiety Workbook". In August 2021, she released the "Gratitude Journal - 31 Days of Gratefulness" through Amazon.
She has successfully held two Empowerment conferences in 2018 and 2019 under the Channeling Tequila #findYOURhappy umbrella which is the name of her blog. The third and biggest Empowerment conference of all will be held July 2022!

What makes you unique in your industry?
What makes me unique in my industry is Empowerment Blueprinting that is done with every coaching client. It's unique because it's a stacking method of goals that are provided by the Coachee at which time the goals are prioritized by achievability based on time management and accountability. This process has proven time and time again to be effective with Coachees and goals are attained that they struggled with prior to starting my program.
Please share your top 3 proud accomplishments to date
First and foremost have 3 college graduates (2 of which are sons) and we all have seen the statistics on that not happening in the Black community. Not to mention having my daughter at the age of 16. As well as acquiring a Master's degree in Public Safety with a Specialization in Criminal Justice.
Second proudest moment was when I launched my coaching business during a pandemic and it survived because of my authenticity, my humanity and my drive.
Third proudest moment to date is launching my Gratitude Journal - 31 Days of Gratefulness on Amazon 08/07/2021 and meeting my goal of selling 1 journal a day each month before August was over. All of these things happened by the Grace of God and I am truly thankful for his blessings over and over again.
Any advice for other women in your industry?
The advice I have for other women in the Coaching industry is to grant other coaches who are trying to learn the business some grace. We have to help each other out so when one of us succeeds, we all succeed. Keeping all the knowledge to yourself doesn't help you, it hinders you. Women are brilliant and we can build bigger and better if we just took the time to take care of each other. Also, stay true to your brand. Stick to what you set out to do and perfect it. When you have too many pots on the stove, something is bound to burn.
What is next for you in 2021 and how can readers connect with you?
I am actively looking for business sponsors for the 2022 Empowerment Conference - S.H.E.E. Edition so for the rest of 2021 I will be working tirelessly on getting sponsors in place to promote their business internationally through sponsorship packages It doesn't matter if you are just starting out or established already. I have a sponsorship package for everyone. It's about community and we need to get back to that in order to grow. Readers can connect via the links below:
