This weekend I had the pleasure of being interviewed by a woman who I recently connected with (shout out to Sage Da Coach from Outside the Box!). She asked me what I had learned this year from God. I instantly knew, I learned that I need others. I have been so wired to be self-reliant and independent, and a lot of times I need to be, but I am learning that I don’t need to be all the time. There are times I simply will not be able to do things all on my own, and I will need help.

I feel like I been waiting on Jesus FOREVA to bring this man. (Where he at Jesus??) But aside from that, just in general, God has typically used waiting in my story. Even stuff I thought was a “suddenly” was more like a, “suddenly this appeared after I had been waiting all this time”! LOL.

I know my mom was a little discouraged by that, but God has taught me an entrepreneur does not just look at the… Continue reading God Wants Isaac
She walked into our very professional business meeting, one kid on her hip, the other, hand-in-hand. I was sitting attentively listening as the speaker effortlessly communicated the vast array of financial services we would be providing to our clients. My trusty Mac at my feet, just in case I got the urge to type out… Continue reading Super Moms
