Strain First. Then, You Get the Juice.

Have you met my friends? I am super excited today because I get to introduce you to some of my friends! Although, I love sharing my own personal experiences with you, the MOXIE Tribe is a shared space and sometimes I wish ​you could be in on the action when my friends and I chat about various things.  They’re pretty deep and…

Don’t Flinch

You know a lot of my blogs come from real life experiences, right? Honestly, I couldn’t make this stuff up if I tried. This week, I wanted to share something with you that happened to me when I first started on my entrepreneurship endeavor. I hope it drives you to understand how incredibly unique and…

Before The Clock Strikes 12:00….⏰

Now, you know I had to post one more time in 2017! We’re going into a brand new year in a few hours, an opportunity most people take to renew their motivation and rejuvenate their tenacity. Luckily for you and I…we’ve been putting muscle behind our hustle all year long (see what I did there?)….

Your Significance Story

I don’t know about you, but this word has been coming up a lot lately: SUCCESS (It must be the approaching #NewYearNewMe epidemic) But… What does success mean? What does success look like? Is success even relevant? I attended a ceremony honoring the life and legacy of an extremely successful person last week. Someone who I esteemed very…

The Real Definition of Success

  I was sitting in an Urban League Young Professionals of Middle Tennessee meeting when one of the founding members, Mr. Markeith Braden, dropped this AMAZING quote about purpose! It resonated with me so much, that I had to put it in my weekly radio Pep Talk and share it with you all.

More Moves, Less Announcements

If you’re breathing anywhere near social media, you’ve probably heard these quotes before: “Make more moves and less announcements” “Real G’s move in silence” “Lions never lose sleep over the opinion of sheep” Now, these are all great Instagram Proverbs – I’ve been quoted saying some myself. However, what do you do when you find…

If You Want a Lawn Full of Opportunities, You Have to Water Your Own Grass

This blog post was originally written for BAUCEmag.com and published on August 2, 2016. A republication appeared on ThoughtCatalog.com on January 17, 2017. We’ve all heard the slogan, “The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence”. It typically implies that the circumstances of your neighbor (friend, co-worker, relative) seem better than…

Stay True

Hey Friends! Every once in a while, I have to pull a blog out of the archives. I write all my blogs with the intention to help others, but I’ve learned that they also serve as a public diary entry for me. Sometimes I look back on them when I’m having a rough day and need to hype…

Like A Fine Wine🍷

What if I told you that everything you’ve experienced in your life was 100% necessary for you – would you believe it? My birthday is tomorrow (I’m accepting all gifts, greetings, lunches, dinners, cakes, clothes and money without shame – let me know if you need to know my sizes!). Birthdays always breed a time…

Read Your Own Receipts

  I’m all for speaking life and encouraging others, and that includes dishing out some good ol’ fashion TOUGH love. However, it starts at home first. It’s very easy to point out what other people aren’t doing. But, here’s the reality – you can’t control anyone but yourself. Now, this is not a new phenomenon, but I have to remind myself of…
