What does women empowerment mean to you?
Women empowerment is about building the mental, physical, spiritual and financial health of women. Part of that involves destroying old patterns of belief that kept women playing small and living unfulfilled. The other part is introducing them to a new picture of themselves without any bias so that they see the beauty and potential of what it means to be woman.
What advice or words of inspiration would you like to share with someone?
My biggest piece of advice to women is always to forget what they were taught a woman should be and to refer to the contents of their own hearts and minds to determine who they truly are.
What do you want your legacy to be?
When my work is done, I see myself leaving behind a legacy of personal power, courage and elevation in mind, body and soul. I also want a big portion of that to include eradicating much of the poverty that comes from fear, as well as gender and race bias.
What inspires you?
I am inspired by watching underdogs triumph. I am inspired by success stories. And I am inspired by my grandsons.

What does self care mean to you?
It is important to constantly provide yourself with self-care which can occur in a variety of ways. Self-care to means lighting some incense. meditating and getting more in touch with my inner self. Other times, I will enjoy a nice warm bath filled with your favorite blend of flowers, oils and botanicals, incense filling the air.

In my lifetime, I have been over Lupus, Grave’s Disease and Epilepsy. I healed myself from these illnesses using self-healing techniques such as Reiki and meditation, minor shifts to her diet and intermittent fasting.

I was thrust into entrepreneurship but the moment that I solved my first major problem on my own and helped others do the same, I realized that I was always meant to be at the forefront and lead people as well as businesses.
What are the goals you most want to accomplish in your business and personally?
My current goals are getting deeper into real estate and shifting the living conditions of those who I can assist. I would love to flip homes in neighborhoods where people think they can never have nice things. I also want to make property and business ownership as well as investing a focus for blacks and women, particularly black women. Personally, I plan to travel outside this country hopefully next year when the havoc caused by the pandemic is settled.
What’s next for you in your business/brand? What can readers look forward to from you?
There is always something cooking for me. Currently, I am studying real estate from an agricultural and commercial standpoint because I would like to eventually make that a major part of my legacy and empire.
