From Homeless to Helping Entrepreneurs

It took me 15 years to complete college, but…I did it!

b.w 2016 Unsung Heroing Award and Profile Picture10 years ago I was homeless, sleeping in my car and on the floors and couches of family and friends. I’m now a homeowner.

This month 8 years ago, I was walking out of divorce court and received a call that my mother had just passed. I now have spiritual mothers.

My corporate job was downsized. I’m now an 11 year small business owner.

Thanks to the goodwill of the people who saw the gift, the anointing, and the potential to BELIEVE in me and to PRAY with me that I went from a homeless, divorced, college drop out without a mother who was unsure of my future…to a hopeful, happy, heart full entrepreneur who now helps women be the BOSS in building their businesses.

I realize that when I impact ONE life, I impact generations.

Whether she’s a single-mother or a single-again woman seeking financial and economic stability through business ownership, I…we impact lives!

Her children and her children’s children will SOMEhow benefit from the work we do today.

It’s because of people like DeQuanda Sanders having a vision and building great organizations like Saving Our Children And Families, Inc. that we are doing just that.

Because of you and the work you do, we CAN and we will continue to help ONE person at-a-time and continue to have a positive impact on generations to come.

And to those who came before us, THANK YOU!

I am honored, blessed, grateful, and humbled to accept this ‘Unsung Heroine Award’, as I believe that your mission and your vision will NEVER be as important to you than the lives you impact.

Thank you.



Oh, No He Didn’t!…


YESTERDAY I posted the two pictures below for VOTES on a potential book cover design for my NEW book, ‘The Boss of Me’ [The Struggle to Success] a guide for helping women entrepreneurs build W.E.A.L.T.H and Worth in business…

A guy inboxed me the following: ‘This is only an absolute opinion. Based on statistics, experience, and my Coach being the # 1 Wealth Coach In The World [He attached 7 pictures of them together].

Re: Your Book Cover. Your picture does not, nor should not be part of your “Title”. You have to decide are you trying to sell books? Or, are you wanting people to know you have written a book. This is a professional opinion.

Stop Asking People For Directions Who Have Never Been Where You Are Going

Read below for my response and place YOUR cover vote in the comments!

#KnowYourLane #RightOfPassage




My Response…

Good for you having an opinion {and being bold enough to privately slip into my inbox to share versus following directions and posting where previously instructed, allowing the ladies the post was geared toward to comment and share on your ‘professional opinion’ sir!}.

My findings and Expertise are on being a woman.

This, along with my professional experience of 12+ years as a business owner and the U.S. Women’s Chamber of Commerce statistics show that ‘70% of women small business owners make less than $25,000’.

The women small business owners and entrepreneurs I serve find it encouraging, empowering and most importantly necessary to see someone who looks like them, wherever we choose to show up on and offline.

My book cover {this one being #8 of 8} reflects me {my picture} and my title as a Business Coach to women entrepreneurs. It not only lets women know I have a NEW book available for purchase to help them leverage their expertise and make more money –lifting us up out of poverty levels– but, it will also allow them to purchase {read: it will sell –with my face on it}.

Your ‘professional opinion’ mentioned not ‘asking for advice from those who’ve never been where I am or where I’m going’…

I never did. This includes any and all unsolicited advice that magically appears in my inbox –especially when not so much as a proper introduction has been made {for example: ‘Hi my name is ___, and I’m a fellow best-selling Author, admirer of your work with women, and a future investor of your product/program for the lady in my life who needs to see other women like you to stay motivated to keep going {especially when she has no one else to relate to who understands the business woman’s journey}.

Oh, and by the way — IF you’re open, first here’s my website with the link to my Amazon best-sellers. I would love to offer some advice on your cover and potentially share some of my best resources with you because I, as a man and fellow business owner support what you do and the women you’ve been designed and assigned to serve.

By the way, my website also features snapshots of me at a live event with the self-proclaimed “#1 Wealth Coach in the World” {if that means anything to you!}.

Thanks for the honor to address you and for allowing me to be a part of your online social media community. I can’t wait to buy several copies of your new {and previously written} books for the ladypreneurs in my life who I know it would help uplift!’}
