4 years ago I was depressed, unhealthy, abusing alcohol and drugs. I had fake confidence that I somehow mustered up, but was actually extremely insecure. I was not strong enough to ignore the societal standards for Black Women, for women in general so I kept my hair straight, hated my wide nose. Focused on skinny. I started to lose faith in my dreams. I was completely messy. Swipe left and peep me 3 days into this. Used my last lil bit of money to buy that calendar book to write down my customers in. I was so hopeful and terrified at the same time. But I NEEDED something to change. So I posted that selfie and got started changing my life.
The power of one step in the right direction man. I just needed to pay my student loans. I didn’t have time for a 3rd job. So I overrode my fear and started my biz that I can do from my phone. I had no idea that that one step to help myself would literally culminate into the healthy, strong, proud Black Woman I am today. People think it’s just about some skincare. Ours is bomb diggity, but no. Something happens to you when you finally decide to take control of your life. Add being around big thinkers 24/7 who support you and tell you yes it’s possible and a transformation begins. Add a greater income so that financial stress is reduced and my gawd who knew you could feel so free! Add purpose into the mix because now you’re helping others take that first step into their greatness just like you did. Add HOPE. You’re limitless. You’re joyful. Your mind is completely upgraded and you can see how THIS is a good life. You’re not going to be able to see the whole staircase. It just doesn’t work like that. Have a lil faith and start with me. This has been such a powerful force in my life. I want to show you how it can be for your life too. But it can’t be from the bench. Get on the court. Get in the game!
