What Can I Do for You?
It took me years to arrive at all this greatness you see before you today!
Here's what you need to know...the skinny version!
I spent 20+ combined years between a traditional and common law marriage experiencing domestic violence ranging from mental, physical, financial and psychological (emotional/verbal). During that time, I also was the victim of a sexual assault during a military deployment.
And, Why do you need to know this?
Because, I kicked Ass and stopped being a victim and transformed into a Survivor. I realized to successfully live my life, to live my dreams as a business owner and to positively affect my community...I had to comprehend "one" really important thing...
It's OK to Tell My Story!
By understanding it was OK, it allowed me to Kickass and leap head first out of shame, guilt and all that other self-loathing "Hot Ass Mess", and I became the best version of my self with increased self-awareness.
After I realized this secret...the world began to open up for me.
But, more importantly...
God helped to me to realize that I had a mission...telling the story from the victim, survivor and business angles to better assist in the war on domestic violence.
I then found out, the battle field of entrepreneurship as an abuse survivor and business owner was just as tough but, not unattainable!
To be prepared...to fight this evil beast of abuse...you need the inside scoop!
This why I'm giving you everything I got when I perform a guest speak...you will receive my upcoming FREE Booklet...
