Sometimes it’s helpful. Often it’s frustrating.
The training I offer is designed to do the opposite. It’s designed to solve “the same old problems,” in a completely NEW way.
It’s always helpful. It’s never frustrating. And…it will transform both your life and your business forever, because that is what happens when faith, business, and fun intersect.
On this site, you’ll learn how to communicate your value with ease and integrity so that attracting ideal clients to your business happens naturally. You’ll learn how to market your business without getting overwhelmed by all the tools, tactics, and technology available to you. And most importantly, you’ll get the hype-free truth on what it takes to build a business by leveraging the web so that you can create your own success blueprint (instead of being sold someone else’s).
Basically, I want you to get RESULTS. Results like the ones I’ve delivered for clients who have escaped the brink of business failure, or have added $30,000 a year in revenue with digital products, or have moved from 5 million to 8 million dollars in revenue in just 3 years.
Annnnd, just to help you keep your head on straight, (because let’s be real, entrepreneurship ain’t easy) I’ll often share Divine-inspired wisdom, topped with a dash of inspiration, and sprinkled with a whole lot of fun for daily living as an entrepreneur.
Ultimately, these insights will help you find an entirely new way of reaching your maximum potential in your business and your life.
I hope you’ll enjoy what you find here as much as I enjoy creating it for you.
So, What’s My Story?
Five years ago while sitting in my frigid office surrounded by accordion folders bursting with legal documents, a small little voice from the inner most part of me whispered, “You were made for more than this.”
And what started as a gentle nudge towards a call for more, turned into raging plea to BE and DO more.
It wasn’t that I felt as though I was better than the work I was doing. It wasn’t that practicing law wasn’t profitable, respectable, or challenging enough to be a worthwhile pursuit.
It was exactly that – it just wasn’t what I was meant to do.
No matter how hard I tried, my life as a lawyer only felt like I was settling for less than my best self had to offer the world.
If it hadn’t been for my unyielding belief that God had more for me – that God Himself was “calling” me to more – I don’t know that I would have made it through that period of my life without losing all hope that I would one day do work that I was truly meant to do.
I was scared. I was unsure. I was ill-prepared. And then, I was laid off.
The way I saw it, opportunity had landed in my lap. God had made a way out, and I knew that if I failed to seize the opportunity to live out my purpose, it might have passed me by for good.
It was the scariest step I ever took, and it transformed my life instantly. And despite the onset of a deep recession (not to mention being new to full-time self-employment), I made just as much money serving my clients in my brand new healthcare marketing business as I did practicing law – in less than a year.
It was liberating, empowering, and it helped me recognize the potential for “what could be” in my life.
I had wanted to pursue entrepreneurship for years before I actually took action. But I couldn’t see the path, I didn’t know where to start, and I wasn’t sure how I’d do it. So I didn’t – until opportunity struck and I harnessed the power of entrepreneurship by leveraging the Web.
But my journey has not been without intense labor and times of difficulty. I faced fear, doubt, instability, and uncertainty. At times, I still do. We all do. That stuff just comes with the decision to live out the dreams of your life by Faith. It comes with the decision to step into your greatness.
Then, a few years into growing my healthcare marketing business something shifted. I discovered that my desire was not to serve healthcare professionals alone, but to serve people who were a bit more like me. People who are, what I call, Radical Entrepreneurs (hence the name of my business and this site).
Now, I’m blessed to spend every day helping entrepreneurs achieve radical success in their business and I couldn’t be happier.
Fun Facts You May Fancy
Well…I’m a mutt. Born of a Jamaican father & American-Swedish mother, I’ve got the best of both worlds – so I believe.
I’m a licensed attorney and member of the Florida bar. Prior to practicing law, I served as an Executive Marketing Director for a software company in Dallas, Texas.
I’ve lived all over the world, I’ve backpacked Europe on my own, and I’ve learned a lot of things in life through trial and error. But it’s those experiences, coupled with Divine guidance, that enables me to help others so effectively, and it’s an incredible privilege to do so.
So there you have it. I’m a fitness enthusiast, a passionate equestrian, a snowboarding fanatic, a world traveler, an undercover tree-hugger, a die-hard philanthropist, a lover of laughter, an unconventional follower of Christ, a mother, and a wife.
Welcome to my little corner of the “Internets” and thank you for stopping by.
