She’s Got That Girl Boss Hustle

“Little Girls With Dreams Become Girls With Vision”

          I’ve always been a dreamer, dreaming the extraordinary, dreaming about things so grand they seem unbelievable to some and flat out crazy to others. I’m a fierce go-getter and not easily discouraged. I believe in the power of my dreams and know, for a fact, that if I can believe it…..I WILL see it!

          My husband surprised me with tickets to see Misty Copeland perform with the American Ballet Theatre at the Metropolitan Opera House in New York City last month (que my happy dance!)!!!! He knows how much I admire Misty as an AMAZING ballet dancer, the very first African American principle dancer for the American Ballet Theatre!! Her performance in Don Quixote was nothing short of amazing and I’m so blessed to have been able to see her do what she was born to do. Misty Copeland is the definition of a #GirlBoss!  While we were in NYC, one of my fave get-a-way spots because of the lively energy of the city, I had an idea for an impromptu photo shoot right outside our hotel, a block away from Times Square………… and with my Hubby as the photographer 🙂


           Y’all know I’m about lifting others as I climb and I think it’s important that women entrepreneurs share stories of our journey, inspiration and encouragement along the way! Its the reason for this blog – to share inspiration, motivation and encouragement on a regular basis to those looking for inspiration while following their dreams.

          I’m big on inspirational quotes because they are simple enough to memorize quickly. When I need a bit of inspiration and encouragement in my life, they are easy to recall, but pack a powerful punch! So, here are some pearls of inspiration for the #GirlBosses , #BossLadies , & #WomenOnTheMove !

God never gives you a dream that matches your budget. He’s not checking your bank account. He’s checking your FAITH!

Motivational Quotes Worksheet

                    Yes, it’s the weekend! It’s also the last day of January 2014! Did this month fly by as quickly for you as it did for me? Many of you probably made New Year’s Resolutions that have already fallen by the way-side. A lot of times this happens because we loose the motivation to stick with the resolutions. To help you out, I am sharing a page from my Success Kit Workbook (part of my new Empowerment Speaker Series!!!!!!!).

                    In the words of Zig Ziglar, “People Say that Motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily!”

                Take some time this weekend to refuel yourself with some inspirational quotes to help you keep pressing forward with your goals. Do an internet search of great inspirational quotes and write them down on the worksheet. Hang it up on your Fridge, Bathroom Mirror, in your office, etc and read it often. You’ll be surprised at how many of these you begin to memorize. Use them to motivate yourself when your determination starts to fade. Enjoy and have a great weekend!
