BUSINESS / ORGANIZATION:
Ms. Pink's WorldConyers, Georgia
ABOUT THE BUSINESS / ORGANIZATION:I specialize in Growth, Authenticity and putting the Mom back in Mompreneur. As Thee Melanin MOMpreneur, I assist the Melanin Mom with reconnecting with the woman inside of them; because they are more than just a mom; so that they can use their #MelaninMagic to create and live their dreams lives TODAY not if or when tomorrow happens. Through my signature Growth Coaching Moms are able to unpack their ish; those emotional, mental and spiritual bags that keep them stuck; and manifest their true desires in their personal and entrepreneurial endeavors while living in and on purpose.
I combine what I learned along my journey, with what I've learned in studying and research with what God blessed me with to truly be the change agent that my clients need, to uncover the answers they need to live their lives in and on purpose.
THE STORY:For so many years I used my gifts and talents to excel on my job, focused my passions in serving others through philanthropic endeavors, and attempted to walk in my purpose as a budding minister in Church. And then everyday I attempted to be the best Mom I could as a Single Mom. I worked for the County of Los Angeles as a clerk and moved up the ladder to becoming a Secretary III within 6 years, because I had to feed my children and those were my skills. I created a non-profit and simultaneously built a ministry and life coaching business focused on single moms, because my passion was to help others just like me heal so that they could let go and live. I was constantly in a state of frustration, overwhelm and just a general feeling of not being enough. I struggled to make money in my business, to secure grants and funding for my non-profit and my career kept me barely over broke even though I kept getting promotion after promotion. I had written 2 Amazon Best-Sellers and still didn't feel like I was making a difference or accomplishing much of anything.
After years of trying to make it all work, I got help! With the assistance of a master life coach trainer, spiritual coach, business coach and my now husband I eventually learned how to use my gifts and talents to walk in my purpose assisting those who I am most passionate about. This was the big Ah-Ha moment for me and what propelled me to where I am today. The first time I had a client sign a contract I was like why was I resisting this for so long. It wasn't the money it was the fact that I was finally able to serve other women in such a way that they truly saw a need for me and the value I offered their lives. Since then my clients have blessed me with telling me over and over again how much I am challenging them to grow, how much the growth continues to happen well after our sessions are over. And that's not just from my life coaching clients but also from my branding clients.
ACCOMPLISHMENTS / ACCOLADES / AWARDS:My proudest moments are when I have clients come back again, again and again and when they refer me to others. The moments that make my heart flutter are when my children want to go after their passions, when they tell their teachers about my business or books. The biggest moments have been reaching consistent success in my business over and over again.
ROADBLOCKS AND CHALLENGES:The biggest struggles have been overcoming what "they" say because my life looks nothing like how they want it to look. It's hard for everyone to move past how something looks today to see the vision for how great the future is destined to be. Most people believe in go to school, get a job, get married, have kids and then live, so when your life doesn't follow that path they believe that success and happiness are not attainable and you should just settle for whatever you can get. I just couldn't subscribe to these thoughts. Deep down I knew I was made for something unique, something truly special and although I veered off the path a time or two maybe even three of four I just had to keep going after my dreams.
When I learned to block out the outside noise, and the internal noise they stirred up and just focus on me I was able to overcome every struggle and roadblock put in my path.
ADVICE:The best advice, honestly it was a challenge, I ever received that took a while to sink in but once I did it truly changed everything was "When are you going to see the greatness we all see? When you are going to realize how dope JPink really is?" It was the question that woke me up and every time I question if I'm right for something I think back to that moment.
