These days, especially in the world of social media, it seems that it’s hard to miss a day when you don’t see or hear someone expressing how women should support each other more. I love to see women spreading messages that encourage us to work and win together so I’m not complaining at all, but I will say that I think “support” needs to be more clearly defined.

2018: The Excitement... The Fear

After the year I've had, I am totally and completely excited about the possibilities that 2018 will bring. I have accomplished things that I never imagined I would. I have completed goals far quicker than I estimated. Even with the natural ups and downs and growing pains I experienced, I can say that I have truly been living a blessed and purposeful life. Even though I am excited about 2018, I can also admit that I am scared as hell. For the first time since becoming an entrepreneur, I am feeling real fear. I am not talking the nerves I feel before getting on stage to speak or the anxiety I feel when planning an event. I am talking fear,...
