What do you believe is your purpose?

 

I believe my purpose is to help others come up with dream strategies to go with the visions that they have for their lives. I also believe my purpose is to encourage millions of millennial women can create the world that they want to live in.

 

 

What lead you to finding this purpose? 

 

Reading and studying the Bible, journaling and meditation lead me to finding my purpose.

 

What are 3 virtues that you have lived ? 

 

3 virtues that I have lived by are: always turning my "impossible" into "I'm possible," never toning down my boldness for others around me and always finding a creative solution for a problem or challenge that I encounter.

 

For me, saying no or not having an answer is not good enough. In fact if you tell me that it's never going to happen or that you do not have an answer, that's going to make me work twice as hard just to prove to you that it is possible! This is truly been the fuel for my success.

 

Someone once told me, "you're doing too much." If you feel like you are being too over the top, it's time to take it up a couple more notches! So, the question is not, "am I doing too much, but am I doing ENOUGH?" That's why I choose everyday to unapologetically be bold and loud!

 

Finally, I'm not just going to have an answer, but I am going to have a creative solution. I live by this because since I was little, no matter how little I had, I always found a way to get the job done. If I don't have a camera tripod. Not a problem, find a stack of books and I'm good to go. If I don't have a teleprompter. Scribbling the script on a white piece of construction paper would have to do. No handheld mic available? I have a working 3GS iPhone that has a voice memo feature and I'm ready whenever you are. Rather I know the answer or not. My answer to everyone is "let's get to work!"

 

Describe one challenge you have face on the journey to your finding your purpose. 

 

One challenge that I have faced on the journey to finding my purpose is overthinking things. I've learned through my process that sometimes the answer is right in front of my face. I also have to remember to not overwork or undersell myself.

 

 

Please share one scripture or quote that has been an inspiration throughout your journey. 

 

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:1 [KJV]

 

GEMS for the Journey

 

Most people can see. Not everyone has vision.
