I started The Soul of a Woman Conference in 2015 and have taken it across the country. It is a setting of normally 25 women wanting change. During this one-day conference my co-host and myself empower women to move from a place of pain to a position of promise.
For years I lived my life according to what (or whom) I thought would make me happy. I was the picture of a people pleaser and it ruled my life. The day I truly started living, standing up for myself, speaking out about what I believed in without looking over my shoulder at who was talking about me and what they thought of me, was the day my life really began and I was set free.
I make no apologies for who I am. I write and talk about my own struggles with self-esteem issues, people pleasing, putting myself last on the totem pole and all the other things that happen in real life. We all have struggles, issues as I often say, and if I can help one person, the ripple effect that I will never know of makes it worth it
