The honest answer is nowhere. The even more honest answer is at home and at work. This entrepreneur life is hard and there are times when enough just isn’t enough. I have been diligently working on building my seven streams of income, but the streams are just drops right now. I have missed blogging conferences and other opportunities because honestly I have been working on and growing my businesses and my brand.
No don’t think I am making any apologies, because I am not. I have to do what I gotta do, no matter what so that is what I have been doing. I have been trying to be diligent in positing on Social Media and was even able to parlay my social media expertise into a social media management opportunity. Its all coming together but I have to remind myself often that this life is a marathon not a 50 yard dash.
So if I miss some events, if I miss calls and don’t return them for days understand that I am working on building my empire. For me that is brick by brick, nail by nail, screw by screw. It is hard work and labor intensive but it is what I want and what is right for me. I am learning to work smarter not harder and I see the empire coming together, little by little, step by step, victory by victory.
If you haven’t already stop by drsharice.org and subscribe to my blog there and see where I will be headed next on my way to empire building. You may want to keep checking the coming events section because the way my work life is set up for the next few days I may be a little delayed in updating.
I miss you guys and will do my best to post more and update more often. Until next time.
This past Sunday May 20, 2018, I had the pleasure of being the panel moderator at the Mommy & Mimosas event hosted by Nisha Hopkins, of Pretty in Power Coaching Agency and the Mogul Mom Society. The day was filled with sisterhood, a dynamic panel, good food, vendors and of course mimosas. The women were able to share, ask questions engage each other and learn from one another.
The panel included women who were entrepreneurs, authors, professionals all of them moms. The panelist and guest were able to engage a variety of topics and questions from dating as a single mom, to how to support your partner while you both chase your dreams. There were also moms in attendance who has lost children, and they too opened up and shared their stories as well.
The event started with speaker Raven Kay founder of She Who Wins Movement. The panel included Keyonda Pyles, from the blog arealurbanmom.com, Kenyetta Watkins of Just Like You Inc., a mentoring program for teen parents and high school students. Shenita Hurt, author of Divorced, Now What? and founder of ReNewHer LLC., Dominique Williams, author and empowerment speaker and of course the visionary and host Nisha Hopkins.
Nisha did a fantastic job of celebrating moms but also creating an atmosphere of sisterhood and an environment conducive to support, encouragement and growth. Even though I am not a mom, I could still relate to the issues and struggles that many of the women faced. The conversation flowed, the mimosas flowed and at times the tears flowed. It was an amazing day and a get demonstration of how African American women can come together, support, uplift and encourage each other. Nisha’s next mommy event coming October 2018.
