April 5, 2020

We are living in unprecedented times right now. The current crisis has hit hard and swiftly. Living in times of crisis causes stress, overwhelm, fear, and loneliness. We all need to know how to cope during a crisis. We need to understand how to care for ourselves and our loved ones when living through a crisis.

 

Coping

It is easy to forget proper coping skills and become worried, anxious, stressed, impatient, and angry. But these thoughts and behaviors do us no good as it is unsustainable to stay in ‘fear and flight mode’ all the time. We oftentimes do not know how long a crisis will last. So, our best bet is do what we can so that we can sustain.

Invest in Yourself

March 19, 2020

To build an abundant life, you must be willing to invest in yourself.

I’ve been thinking a lot about this topic as I plan and execute my goals. At different steps, I am confronted with skills that I need to learn, trainings I need to attend, lessons that I need to un-learn, and services that I need to contract out.

The more that I grow my business, the more I pivot and make changes, and the more that I dream, plan, and execute is the more that I begin to see that investing in myself is necessary to curate the life and business that I want.

Building a Healthier Relationship With Yourself

March 5, 2020

Today, I want to discuss steps to building a healthier relationship with yourself so that you can make strides towards building abundance, legacy, and wealth in your life.

 

Let’s explore these steps to building a healthier relationship with yourself…

  • First, your relationship with yourself reflects the relationship that you will have with others. When you take the time to develop a healthier relationship with yourself, you will be more in tuned with your own needs and wants.
  • Secondly, when you are clearer about what you desire and what you want, you will understand more clearly what you will and will not tolerate in your life.
  • Third, when you are clearer about who you are, your sense of time and sense of value will become more concise. You will make decisions that will serve your life goals and purpose and will become more intentional about how you spend your time.

Implementing these 5 steps to building a healthier relationship with yourself will help you build a life that is more fulfilling, peaceful, abundant, and joyful. Your stress and anxiety will be reduced, and you will find that you will begin eliminating a lot of areas that you did not realize were not fueling you or making your life easier.

A Letter to Black Women

February 20, 2020

Dear Black Women,

 

It is time to lay your burdens down. You cannot carry the weight of the world any longer. You haven’t been able to do so for a long time. Can’t you see that it is holding you back? It is quite literally killing you from the inside out.

 

Healing

I have watched scores of posts of black women on social platforms, such as the Red Table Talk and other FB groups, airing out their relationship issues instead of seeking the proper resources. When will we understand that these kinds of feedback do not help us because these are all opinions based on other people’s personal experiences? These also do not tackle the deeper issues within you. They don’t begin to address the deeply rooted traumas that you live with day in and day out.

Building Generational Wealth

February 13, 2020

Systemic issues that seek to prevent building general wealth in black families will probably always exist within this country

 

Poverty Mentality

The Black community have suffered for so long from poverty, that many of us have developed and have become attached to a poverty (scarcity) mentality. We have generations of families that have nothing to offer the next generation which serves to continue the legacy of poverty, poverty mindset, and financial dependence.

Here we are celebrating another Black History month, and many families are still in the same financial situations as the years before. Building wealth is not the only goal for black families. But, building wealth is a necessity.
