About Me

 

1

I was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois, one of two siblings of which I was first. My mom and dad have transitioned in 2006 and 2007 respectively leaving me, my sister and niece to hold down the family legacy.

I began my entrepreneurial career at the age of seven selling lemonade to neighbors and passersby. Something about having my own money felt good and I could buy my own toys.  I graduated to selling other things like rocks I collected at the beach and painted for “door stops”. I did pretty well paving the way to earn more down the road.  For a kid that felt good.

In high school my interests were sports, swimming, and music.  I was varsity cheerleader as a freshman and co-captain all four years.  I continued on to be a cheerleader into my third year of college.  Well, after years of rah-rah sis boom bah I realized cheer leading would not be the career for me.

Fast-forward….the positions I held as an adult in the corporate arena ranged from Administrative Assistant, Pharmacy Lead Tech, Property Manager, Accountant and currently Auditor.  I was laid off twice in my life, once in 2003 and again in 2010.  During the last lay-off  I experienced an aha, light bulb moment.  Having a “J.O.B.” is not security!  By the grace of God, I was back to work in 2011 and have been employed in a government position since then.  But….

Enough is enough I have had it! I am an avid reader, attend seminars, conferences and heard way too many times that “due to the economy, you better have your own HOME BASED-BUSINESS”.  Darn, there goes those lights again. Instead of refuting the “brilliant” signs, signals and tugs in my spirit I listened.  Set and determined to do something different to get different results.

I have an “A-type” personality and lots of energy! My goal is to channel the energy in positive directions to the abyss of being in unfulfilled nine to five position feeling like a caged bird.  My purpose is to discover what I really should be doing and do it!  I know the benefits of abundance will surely follow.
