I didn’t get a head start in life. My father sexually abused me from age 12 – 19, forced me to play the role of his wife, beat me, raped me, and even trafficked me to other men at times. I didn’t know how to handle the pain, shame, and false sense of guilt from those years of abuse. Life was, at times, almost not worth living. And, I considered ending it.
I met my husband Mack when I was 19. He was my knight in a shiny Camaro. He gave me the courage and support to escape, and I didn’t look back. I left behind the father who had abused me, and I left behind my mother who blamed me for it all. I left with a couple of pillow cases stuffed with my clothes and a determination that my past wasn’t going to hold me back. I didn’t really know how to deal with what happened to me, so I did the best I could at the time. I locked seven years of my life up behind a closed door in my heart. And then, I threw away the key. Mark Twain said, “The two greatest days in your life are the day you are born and the day you discover why.” Thirteen years after leaving home I discovered my “why” and answered God’s calling on my life when I shared my story publicly for the first time. I realized there are many women like me, ready to step into the role God created for them and ready to live an abundant life, but they’re not sure how.
Today, I speak, write, and teach leadership and life skills for women who are ready to maximize their potential and become the woman God created them to be. Through years of writing, speaking, teaching, coaching, and training, and a nearly 20 year career in leadership and management, I realized women often hold themselves back because they haven’t learned how to increase their influence, overcome self-limiting beliefs, increase self-confidence, develop leadership skills, and maximize their potential to do more, have more, and be more. Or, haven’t learned how to overcome a past hurt or a present obstacle constructively.
We don’t always know how to overcome issues like shame, self doubt, lack of self-worth, limiting beliefs, lack of confidence, or lack of influence with others. We often simply aren’t equipped to do so.
I struggled at times with all of the above and more, and that’s where my passion was ignited to help others overcome as I have.
I share powerful leadership and success principles I have learned, as well as tools of transformation to equip and empower women in all four dimensions of life: Mind, Body, Spirit, and Social Influence. Learn to:
- Maximize Your Potential in Life and Leadership
- Achieve Goals Personally and Professionally
- Develop Influence, Communication, and Leadership Skills
- Become the Woman God Created You to Be
Although I share from a woman’s perspective, men are absolutely welcome too!
