I have a confession to make. I’m completely obsessed with reading personal development books. When I say obsessed, I mean constantly reading and implementing the wisdom that I gain from the books I read.
My obsession began when I started listening to one of my mentors, Jim Rohn. In one of his videos, he talked about getting a free library card and reading personal development books. Once I finished listening to his video, I jumped in my car and was off to the nearest library. This was the beginning of my obsession.
Five years later and after reading over 300 books, I can honestly say that my obsession has grown ever since. On average, I enjoy reading at least five books a month. These books consist of self-care, finances, personal growth, relationships, marriage, leadership, and spirituality.
Excited to be traveling to Charlotte,NY in March to appear on WBTV where I’ll be doing my Happiness segment!

We live in a society filled with clutter, noise, and distractions. I’ve recently been putting together my new one year project “Work-life integration” where I’ve been recording my journal entires for the purpose of creating an informative book. These journal entires will focus on life lessons that I learn as an entrepreneur, wife, woman, and interviews with key influencers in the areas of personal growth, relationships, and spirituality.
This project will focus on the struggles of maintaining work-life integration and the helpful strategies and tools that we can all use to live a more meaningful and successful life.
Too often than not, people sacrifice their relationship with their spouse in hopes of having a successful career. Or, how about sacrificing their self-care because of their demanding work schedule.
For 2015, I’m on a mission of finding out what it really takes to have a successful business, marriage, while nourishing your soul.
I absolutely love reading personal growth books. Do you?
If you don’t, I will share the major benefits of reading and implementing the wisdom from the books you read.
Five years ago, I experienced a traumatic situation where I was sexually molested and exploited. I made the commitment to view my adversity as a learning experience and grow into a stronger and wiser woman. I became a lover of lifelong learning.
At the age of 19, I started down the path of personal growth. The very first personal development product that I started listening to was Personal Power by Tony Robbins. This product completely changed how I viewed myself and life. The biggest lesson that I learned from Tony is the fact that you are in control of your life. You can either allow others and situations to hold you back or you can continue to push forward, even in the face of challenges. You have the power to be your personal best.
What is your definition of success?
It’s been about five years since my adversity of being sexually molested and exploited. It’s interesting to look back and see how much I’ve experienced since then.
Being a motivational speaker, self-help author, and personal development coach, I’ve realized just how passionate I am about empowering others to overcome their own adversity and start designing a meaningful life.
Throughout my personal growth journey, I’ve studied from some of the well known leaders in the personal development industry. Some of my mentors include, Tony Robbins, Zig Ziglar, Brian Tracy, and Jim Rohn. These mentors have inspired me to reach my fullest potential.
