I’ve been on a mission to lift as many of my sisters up as I grow. It didn’t always work, each time sending me back to the drawing board. I understood support and uplifting on a higher level, and refused to let go of this vision. Not just to share inspiration but also to CREATE opportunities for my sisters to connect and grow.
The journey though, was FULL of setbacks forcing me to accept the fact that I can’t make others fall in love with my ideas, especially when compared to their own focus and potential. It’s never enough. I was discouraged earlier this year but asked God for the strength to not let go. He answered. It is to this end I share with love one of many ways the chips have fallen where they may.
I have watched Brown Skin and Goal Digging Woman, Martine, Owner of Marouge Publicity blossom and work hard for years. And decided to reach out to her earlier this year. An opportunity for her to still work on her daily passion, and join my team in a way that will (of course help me), but more importantly help her continue to reach higher heights and work towards her goals. I said all of this to say my sisters wins are my own. A mindset shift from me and mine to us and ours behind a brand that embodies sisterhood and genuine support is how it all happened.
