Confetti or not, here we come

Who doesn’t love Confetti? This week’s blog post is going to be another short, yet impactful one! Do you remember that little book of quotes I told you about? Well, I pulled it out again today to find another good one: “I’ve decided that the stuff falling through the cracks is confetti and I’m throwing a…

What’s Your Benchmark?

Can I trust you with a secret? Okay good. I figured, but I wanted to be sure: I don’t always feel inspired, motivated or encouraged. Some days I’m busy, tired, and just want to kick back and mind my business. I know, shocking right? “But Vannesia, you have a motivational blog…” Yeah I know. But…

Competition, Concession, Collaboration

Gather ’round, it’s story telling time! Once upon a time, in a land far far away, there was a movie called Hustle and Flow. Starring Terrence Howard, Taraji P. Henson, Anthony Anderson and others, it was the story of a brothel-keeper / street pharmacist who parlayed his entrepreneurial skills and knack for rap stylings into…

Let’s Change This Statistic

Let’s Change This Statistic Every once in a while, I’m compelled to give you a blog post that’s just short, sweet, and to the point. Today is one of those times. Here’s a statistic I read recently and was compelled to share: 92 Percent of People Don’t Achieve Their Goals. Let’s help grow that 8%. Whether…

Bug or Windshield?

A couple of weeks ago, I was in Gulf Shores, Alabama and walked into the cutest shop attached to a restaurant.

What’s Your Sign?

No, that blog title wasn’t a pick up line, but it is the topic of this week’s blog post! Let me tell you what I did a couple of weeks ago that completely caught me off guard. I was driving along, minding my own business, and I took the wrong exit. Look, now I know…

A Word From Dr. Suess

Today’s message is short and sweet – but just as impactful. This week, be encouraged to remain authentic and genuine in your workplace and relationships with others. Here’s a bit of encouragement to do so from one of my favorite Doctors (other than my sister), Dr. Seuss :   Today you are you! That is…

Less Dimetapp and More Robitussin

Now, all through February, my blogger friends have been bringing the FIRE with their guest blog posts. How do I know that? Because ya’ll have told me! I get the emails and comments…and so do they. So, thanks for showing them how the #MOXIE tribe gets down! If you remember, Mariah Cole kicked it off…

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…
