Reason for starting
I left an abusive marriage of 21 years with five children – one of whom has cerebral palsy. I wanted to be the voice for the voiceless and show women through my example what was possible for them.

Biggest Success
Hearing the testimonials of women who got inspired after hearing me share my journey of overcoming adversity and giving hope. The Possibilities Conference is a HUGE success where women enjoy a day of joy and transformation.

What is your top challenge and how have you addressed it?
No money resources – and feeling alone as a solopreneur. I just continued coaching, making more products, doing free talks, teaching myself the business. I connected with great women. I went to a ton of networking functions so i wouldn’t feel alone. I held my vision close to me

Who is your most important role model?
Historically .. I love Mary (mother of Jesus) In today’s times.. it’s all the women that have overcome adversity and built amazing businesses helping more women do the same
