What is Your Purpose?

In times of economic hardship or the overall "the economy is bad" cloud, it is so easy to lose sight of the vision we have for our business. All over America people are feeling a "profit" crunch. However, it is imperative that remain focused and continue to implement strategies for businesss growth. Do not become personally deflated by the "bad economy" syndrome. In other words don't use this as the excuse for all your business woes. Ask yourself, How can I stand in my power and take back my… Continue

What Does Daddy Do?

I am ranting about Dads today....

Mom's generally have most of the responsibility with children. Even if mom works full or part-time, they are expected to do everything. Even when father's are in the home, mother's do most of the work.

Mothers manage every aspect of their child or children's lives. There are some Dad's who do these things too. So why is to special and amazing when a man does these thing but just responsibility when a woman does it?

Not every woman may… Continue

"Only by pride cometh contention; but with the well advised is wisdom."

Proverbs 13:10

Pride is a deadly weapon that has been used by the enemy to destroy the lives of many people. It occurs when we begin to think more highly of ourselves than we should. We start believing the false notion that we should get special attention or treatment because of who we are and what we have accomplished.

The Word of God tells us that pride only breeds…

Essence of Motown Literary Jam LOCATION HAS CHANGED!

The Riverside Hotel is no longer where our Friday and Saturday (November 7th and 8th) events will take place. Due to sponsorship being very low this conference year and not enough PAID registration taking place prior to the event, we could not afford to pay for that space.

WCCCD NEW Northwest campus has graciously given us the space we need in order to facilitate the conference.

Great day! BBWO...

Today I'm going to share with you some awesome information on how to find the best lip color.

The ideal neutral lip color is like the perfect pair of jeans; it is a basic that you can dress up or down, and it will always look great on you.

Put it in neutral. The most versatile lipstick you can win is a shade that’s just a bit brighter than your natural lip color. It will even out and define your lips the way a subtle coat of mascara… Continue

Make some cash and have a BLAST doing it!

I am looking to add on several more healthy hair consultants. (NO prior experience necessary, I will provide you with training). The ONLY qualifying factor is you need to want healthy hair and have the desire to educate other sisters on the way of having it through games, workshops and FUN!!! My hair care parties are NOT your average home party. During our parties we teach the importance of maintaining moisture and protein balance, and how to do this, the "good" ingredeints and "bad"… Continue

The Only Thing I Cannot Do For You Is Get Your Coffee!

You keep hearing me say I am "The first step towards organizing your business and becoming stress free" that's my slogan, but after pondering it for some time I have decided that those words are a very vague description of what I do. So I decided to be more detailed, and have changed my slogan to "The Only Thing I Cannot Do For You Is Get Your Coffee." and here is why....

I can assist any type of business owner. No kidding.


Not only can I create… Continue

This is very sound advice, but unless you have nothing, you have to take the plunge. Go through your house, and tag all your items. Take an inventory of every single piece, except for food, clothing, computers, electronic, etc. The average person will buy 2-3 different sets of furniture during their lifetime, between 10-15 cars, and 2-3 homes. We have a client who retired at the age of 42 with a net worth of 1.3 million. When she first came to us, 7 years ago, her net worth was $130,000. She… Continue

How would you like to start your child out with $46,800 by the time they get to college. $50 a week for 18 years even with 0 interest comes to $46,800. We recently recommended to one of our family members to start buying 1 piece of Tiffany silver in any particular pattern, every week without fell. That's $1500 this year which should be approximately $120,000 when his daughter is 18. Now just imagine all the sodas, movies, toys, cell phone bills,… Continue

Changing Colors

Ok, I noticed it has been a LONG time since my first post.

Lot's of things happening, but the thing that drives this post was my quest to change the presentation of this site to something I could bear to look at. The pink thing was KILLING me! No seriously: it was!

I was never a "pink" girl. I was always a "purple" girl. I liked intense earthy colors,--in flowers, in clothing, in men, in everything! Throughout life, I have found that when i stray from what makes me… Continue
