It feels a little vain to write about myself but with the new year upon us and over a thousand views in my first two months writing this blog, I thought I should at least give you a glimpse of the woman behind the blog.
Let’s start with the good stuff. People always want to know about your personal life first so I won’t torture you with all of the boring stuff, yet.
I am a single mom of a fantastic and extremely energetic four-year old little boy. I have never been married (blog coming soon on that) and can’t say that I honestly see Mr. Right in the near future. I have dated enough Mr. Wrongs and Mr. Not Quite-Rights to realize that it isn’t always them and its not always me. Relationships are a two way street but both people have to be driving in the same direction.
Sometimes I think I’m kind of lame but then I get a night on the town and realize I still know how to have fun. My Christian and Cool segment chronicles my journey from Party Girl to Christian Leader. Some people think this transition happens over night but I am finding that it is a process, it is filled with struggles and slip ups and you can’t be ashamed to admit your mistakes and ask questions. I am also finding that more people identify with what I am going through than I originally thought.
I love to blog because it’s cheaper than therapy and I get a lot of stuff off my chest while hearing other people’s thoughts. I try not to take things too seriously. I’ve learned it’s best to let go and let God.
I only feel the need to include this because I am sure there are some people that wonder what makes me think I am qualified to write all of this “stuff.” I am blessed beyond measure to be involved with some awesome organizations that constantly provide me with challenges and opportunities. I prefer to live on the good side and make the best of any situation ~ then I come over here, switch up some names and blog about it (LOL).
I’m a Business Consultant by day and Blogger by night. Gotta pay the bills. I specialize in helping small business owners through seminars and one on one consultations in addition to faciliting seminars and workshops on job sites. My varied experiences allow me to present on a multitude of subjects. The best moments are when you can see a light bulb go off in someone’s head because you have said something that really ressonates with them.

Connect with me
I prefer to build a network filled with people that want to have a mutually beneficial relationship so if you connect with me, don’t be surprised if I call on you to be a speaker, provide some insight or to help one of my clients. As I often tell my son, “Sharing is caring.”
I’m one of those people that will stand up in church and testify that I haven’t always been this focused. God brought me through many a storm and I still go through them but I have the spiritual maturity to praise Him before, during and after the storm.
I am sooo grateful to all of the readers that visit this site, whether you leave a comment or not. I read other blogger’s sites and I am in awe at their creative content and writing skills so it makes it even more special to know that my topics are of interest to you.
Don’t ever hesitate to contact me ~ firstname.lastname@example.org ~ if I can be of assistance to you or your organization.
Hope this satisfied your curiosity or peaked it enough to make you want to come back more often :)
Check back next Wednesday, it could be all about YOU!!
