Empower. Uplift. Build. Encourage.

The best gift I’ve ever given myself was harnessing the power of writing my own story and not allowing others to write it for me. Daily, I am inspired to write my life’s script and master being a ‘perpetual autobiographer.’ It allows me to realize my most fulfilling life.

Motivational Talks

Time Out for Hoping

In the times we are in, we can no longer hope for the future. We must be the hope for the future. Let me show you how!

You Write Your Own Story

Someone will always try to tell you what you can and cannot do based on stereotypes, body size, education level, upbringing, zip code, age, but you control your destiny. You have the pen, and you must never relinquish it. You write your own story. Let me show you how to be a perpetual autobiographer too!

Are You Ready to Move to the Next Level?

Many people say they want to move to the next level in their lives, but how many people are actually ready to make the move? In order to move to the next level, you must have a plan. You must have confidence. You must have a vision. You must have commitment. I can help you get to the next level!

Courage is not Common. But, Neither are You.

I no longer call folks in leadership positions leaders simply because they have a title. To be a leader, you must have courage. In my journey over the last few years, I’ve learned that courage is not common–even among elected and public officials, our so-called “leaders”. I am here to help you tap into your courage. You are fearless. Never let anyone tell you otherwise.

No Regrets. Life must be lived.

We’ve all heard YOLO, but do we actually live it? Whether you believe in the afterlife or eternal life, you must embrace it. So many of us never live out our full potential because of fear. Fear should never hold you back. Fear should be your impetus to live your best life and achieve all that God has ordained for you. If you were to die, how many of your dreams would be buried with you?

Now is your time!

You will hear it all (if you haven’t already): “You are too young. Too old. Too poor. You need to wait your turn! You don’t have the experience.” Let me tell you: It is your time! Justice cannot wait. Your solutions cannot wait. We need your ideas now. You are not our future leader, you are a leader now. Take your rightful place.

You Matter.

You are not just one person. You are not just anything. You are vital. You are important. Dr. Seuss said, “To the world you may be one person; but to one person you may be the world.” Let me show you how to remember this every day and live out this principle to achieve your goals and fulfill your destiny.
