with a bachelor’s degree in Design Studies & Electronic Media. From leaving University I worked as a Graphic designer for a year then transitioned to a freelance designer thus becoming my own boss.
Cancer broke my world
At the same time, my mom was going through breast cancer for the 2nd time. I planned to start my greeting card business. The idea appeared after creating a black greeting card for her for mother's day. However, my mom lost the battle to breast cancer and it tore me apart. I couldn't pursue my greeting card business any longer, so I walked away from my passion, not knowing what I would do next.
Life threw me a curve ball
Seeing a gap in the Black hair care industry market where I lived. I jumped in & opened the 1st Black hair & beauty store in my town. I had entered this new business without knowledge of the industry and yet grew a successful business over 4 years. After that, I went back to pursue my greeting card business. I was stronger, wiser now & I had my 1st child to put through school.
My greeting card business opened more opportunities than I would ever imagined
This was the business that helped me find one of my online natural talents. With 14 years of online experience, back in the day when I had no Facebook or Twitter to help market my business online. This is how I fell in love with SEO, affiliate marketing & traffic generation. I learned everything I could & continue to do so. The online world is consistently evolving, & I need to know how my businesses need to change to stay current.
I shocked myself & my competitors
Within 6 months of launching my business, I overtook my competitors on the first page of Google & other search engines. My competitors were online 3 years before my business even existed. I saw them in the media, & getting interviews, while my business silently took prime location on Google 1st pages. This is when I saw the power of online marketing from an affiliate marketing perspective. The knowledge and experience. I learned was invaluable, now I never stop learning, and I've passed this on to my boys. Knowledge is power, it opens our minds and many doors.

My skills & experience has allowed me to help many business owners, from different industries and with different problems. I also have a natural ability in listening to people's skill sets, hobby or experience and help them monetize it. I seem to be the go-to person for solutions & I'm happy to serve, it's part of my DNA. I am truly honored to be able to help people build a blessed life. While I also continue to create a beautiful blessed life for my children, thanks to my God-given gifts.
