My latest endeavor is GoGetHer Inc., an organization that I co-founded. Our focus is to help women who want to further their dreams, goals, and aspirations. We just had our first conference on April 21st, 2018. It was a huge success with over 150 in attendance. Major press companies like ABS News, Rolling Out, and The Hub were there to cover the event and to show what we were delivering to the women involved. I'm super excited about this particular endeavor because I believe in pouring back into the lives of others.
THE STORY:I got started because someone saw something in me that I never saw in myself. I came from nothing! But I have never allowed the hand I was dealt to be the sole determining factor in what I could become. I grew up fatherless, and at times, it felt like I was motherless. I've overcome childhood sexual assault, I moved out completely on my own when I was 16 years old, and that's just the beginning of the life I've had and the struggles I've overcome. I've lost a child, been in an abusive relationship, and the story goes on.
Growing up, I never dreamed about anything, except surviving. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever imagine that I would one day own even one company. Yet, now I own several. I never imagined that I would eventually be an author, but I am one. I literally started these businesses from the ground up. No help, no loans, just hard work, trial and error, and a refusal to give up.
I know what it’s like to have gifts and talents; to put blood, sweat, and tears into a business; to work 12, 13, and sometimes, 24 hour days trying to hustle hard and build a dream. I know what it’s like to start a business with no money, fear, no guidance, and no idea how to make it all happen, but I did it. That's why I am so passionate about helping people and its part of the reason why I co-founded GoGetHer Inc. I make it my mission to empower and inspire people throughout my life so they can maximize their potential, live a fulfilled life, and go after their dreams—fearlessly! That is my overall purpose, and that is what makes what I do special.
ACCOMPLISHMENTS / ACCOLADES / AWARDS:Proud moments....I wouldn't use the word proud more than I would say, grateful. There are many people who may have a similar story or even worse. I, however, recognized that it was nothing but the hand of God over my life. God is the reason that I have made it this far! I can't begin to wrap my mind around why He chose me, but I am so grateful that He did.
My company, Gifted Dezyns, was awarded Best Print Shop in Atlanta for 2017. GoGetHer Inc. was also listed 2nd above Amazon in the Michigan Economic Development Corporation for Growth Opportunities for women-owned businesses that are driving Flint's small business boom.
Another milestone that I am extremely grateful for is that we were able to put on our very FIRST conference, and we didn't just SELL OUT, but we went over our goal for attendees. I’m grateful that we had the opportunity to sow something positive into the lives of so many women, including monetarily.
SUCESS:Two personal things about myself; I never take no for an answer. It’s kind of a running joke among my friends; if I'm told no, I always ask, “What does that mean!” LOL. No to me is never no, it’s always just a new opportunity. The other personal thing; I am a little obsessed with quotes. I love a good inspirational quote. A good quote always seems to light a fire under me.
HEROES:I don't define success in the traditional way. Success to me is the legacy that you leave behind. The mark that you have left on someone's life. Knowing your purpose and living your life on purpose; that is true success in my opinion. In the end, people won't remember you for what you looked like, or all the money you made, but the impact of your life, how you made them feel, and how your life changed their life!
My hero is God. Cliched as it may be. My mentor’s are Oprah and Bishop T.D. Jakes; I love their spirit, tenacity, wisdom, and their ability to overcome all the odds, and in spite of the odds at times. I also admire my pastor, Dr. Lee Adams. Growing up without a father was hard for me, and to see the love that he has for his daughters amazes me. Not only that, I've never seen such an imperfect man, live and walk such a Godly life, and it is real, the way he does. In today's world, it’s sad that most pastors don't practice what they preach, but he does, and I admire that!
