A born and raised Georgia peach with nothing more than a passion for helping others succeed, I stumbled upon my own entrepreneurial-self in 2016. Just two years ago, I begged God to give me a mission for my tedious life. At the time, everyone around me appeared to have something to focus on… a passion… a dream… goals. I was working an 8-5 job that I loved, but I just knew that somehow and in some way, the Lord had bigger plans for my life.
My soul wasn’t settled and I spent most of 2015 seeking to discover those bigger plans. Ask and you shall receive, right? I woke up one morning and started pouring my heart into my keyboard. I have always enjoyed writing letters, but this writing was different than anything I had ever done.
I decided a long time ago that I would let the Lord lead my steps and He has opened amazing doors for me along the way; I just never anticipated what was coming. Almost ten months later, I have a blog, lead a Womenpreneur’s Meet Up in Nashville, and I am in the process of launching my own online consulting business.
