I have been to many leadership trainings over the years. Even those that I had to travel and attend alone because I truly understood the Vision.
But it isnt just about what I believe or what my vision is, but are others catching my Vision?
Are others building their dreams along side me?
Are other investing in their future?
That is what truly matters.. Seeing my team winning, investing in themselves, learning, enaging and seeing the Vision. It is the MOST satisfying, intoxicating feeling to know that I am able to help inspire and impact other women to take control of their vision!
We are here together in this room learning from THE most successful people not just in our company but in the industry. These events create all the energy you need to develop your vision to build your dream.
Are you catching you the Vision? Are you building your dream? Are you living a fulfilled life? If not, YOU CAN. Learn from those who are!
Happy Women’s Entrepreneurship Week! We would like to thank Meg Columbia-Walsh for giving such an amazing and inspirational speech about Women’s Entrepreneurship and the obstacles she overcame on her path to success.

Name something more powerful than 2 women with a laptop?
I took this last Saturday as I was walking back to my car - after a morning of sharing and selling When I Fly With Papa at the Twin Cities Book Fair. I met a lot of people there, but two women stood out to me.❤️⠀
One of them reminded me of myself 6 years ago, just beginning to illustrate. They were friends working on a children’s book together - that they dreamed up. Her eyes were bright with wonder and excited as she paused and studied the pages that I drew. 😍⠀
And it was then, it dawned on me. I used to get really bad arthritis like aches in my hands from lupus. There were many days where I struggled to use my hands. Where I cried in pain because I couldn’t write a simple note at work. And now in this season of my life I have been gifted with something so incredible and I still can overlook it.😞
I have wasted too much time underestimating what God has put inside of me. I have spent too much time negating the gifts within and caring about what I think people think of me - instead of running full speed in the direction He has already planned and perfected for me. And frankly I won’t do it anymore. Time is a gift, the ability that I have today is a gift, and I want to spend whatever time God has gifted me doing EXACTLY what I was created to do. 🙌🏾⠀
And you know what, you should too. Don’t miss your opportunity of today. Look at each day as the gift that it is and walk it out with courage, faith and humility. ❤️ Tag a friend that thinks the best of you and encourages you to live up to your best self! They are priceless!👌🏾
Shout out to the most amazing woman that I know. No one will ever understand the bond that we have and she is one of the driving forces behind my success. After my dad passed away, it was the hardest time of our lives emotionally and financially because it coincided with the 2008 recession. My mom was unemployed for almost a year. I had just graduated college and was interning at a marketing company, making shit pay. I remember the days when we would be on the phone crying and wondering how we would pay our rent. I’ll never forget only having $10 in my bank account and wondering how the hell i was going to fill up my gas and buy groceries. No one helped us and it took everything we had not to give up and feel hopeless. To this day, this motivates me because I refuse to ever live that life again or see my mom and sister suffer. What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger and I’m just getting warmed up with all I want to accomplish. This drives me, what drives you? #goaldigger#bossbabe

What negative aspects have you been creating in your life without realizing it? Thinking the worst in situations and acting “surprised” when your manifestations come true 🙄🤦🏽♀️
Pessimism can fuck your life up. (Excuse my language but like, transparency...lol)🤷🏽♀️😏
We all know a negative Nancy that’s always complaining about how terrible things are always happening to them. They can’t ever seem to catch a break or they’re always “swamped” with something. Blah blah...
And we all know someone that’s overly optimistic about even the smallest things in life. We might even see them as unrealistic or even dumb because of their optimistic nature in certain situations(I’ve had strangers look at me like this my whole life, I’m used to it idgaf I’m a Pisces/Aquarius cusper bihhh) 🤣🙌🏽🤸🏽♀️🤷🏽♀️
The personality and demeanors of these two types of people are a reflection of their ways of thinking. .
As are the circumstances they create in their lives to continue their own internal dialogue of being too swamped or too naive. .
You think that’s a coincidence? .
Be mindful of your thoughts. Be mindful of your words. I didn’t come up with this shit, Einstein said so. Literally. Lol 😏📝👑🙇🏽♀️🙏🏽💗
Find your light! ☀️ ——— This is a common phrase used on set that I want to offer to you as we head into the weekend. I want you to find your light for your best self. 💪🏻 Maybe that means a reading light to educate, a flashlight to find what is holding you back, or a spotlight to put yourself front and center for a promotion! 💡🔦🕯 What does find your light mean to you? Lmk below so we can all cheer you on!

@ashleygraham is changing the whole freakin’ world. Just two years ago she became the first size-16 model ever to land the cover of @sportsillustrated’s Swimsuit Issue. Today she appears in mainstream ads, campaigns for more plus-size models to be included in major runway shows and creates quality clothing for curvy women in a limited fashion industry. This #FierceFemale brings size acceptance into the mainstream and we love her for it. 😌 #beautybeyondsize#stylebeyondsize@si_swimsuit
Cooofffeeeee!!! 🍳☕️ a little too much champagne for my poor little head last night, feeling it this morning! .
Oh and what about this set for @zahliisleep It’s too perfect! As always I’m bronzed up with @vanit_official velocity tanning mousse! Weekend ready has never been easier!
