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!
Allow Possibility To Feed Your Soul!
I stopped waiting for the “Light at the end of the Tunnel” and lit it MYSELF!
You did NOT wake up today to be Mediocre!
BE the game changer!
Make your passion your Paycheck!
“I’m on a mission to build an EMPIRE and leave a LEGACY”
A flower does not think of competing with the flower next to it. It just BLOOMS.
Be THANKFUL for what you have. Be fearless in what you want!
BE the Game Changer!
The Best Investment: YOURSELF!
Motivation gets you started. HABIT keeps you going.
“I LOVE my Boss.” (P.S. – I work for myself!)
If you wait until you’re “READY”, you’ll be waiting the rest of your life!
Just Do You!
You had a purpose before anyone had an opinion!
Once in a while, honey, blow your OWN mind!
Don’t be afraid, be inspired! God gave us talents and He wants us to use them.
#GirlBoss : She knew the power of her mind and she programmed it for success!
Don’t downgrade your dream just to fit your reality. Upgrade your conviction to match your destiny!
