How I overcame fear PLUS bonus Natural Hair, Beauty & Wellness Expo Ticket Giveaway

Three years ago I decided to plan the largest event I’d ever planned.  It would be an event for women of color to convene, support, love and share positive energy with one another.  I had fear and doubts that it wouldn’t go according to plan.  Because why would overcoming my own self fear and doubt go off without a hitch?!

I assumed the worst of everything…only a few women would show up and the many amazing businesses who invested their time and money to participate (many of which traveled from out of state) would have an unsuccessful day of sales.

Faith and determination helped me push through, choosing to overcome fear and focus on my goal.  Like myself women with natural hair needed to know how to properly care for and maintain her natural hair (because YouTube tutorials simply were NOT enough), best skincare techniques, wellness resources and to shop black own products and businesses.  

I did it.  With over 200 women in attendance the only thing I actually underestimated was how much energy I would have at the end of the evening.  I was exhausted.

Fast forward 2 1/2 years in about two months, the Brown Skin Women Natural Hair, Beauty & Wellness Expo is happening again.  Featuring an amazing vendor mall, workshops, raffles and much more.  The smiles, the love, the education, the inspiration, the black beauty all under one roof.

So here’s to overcoming fear, focusing on our goal and being power goal digging women.

Oh, and about the ticket giveaway :).  I’m giving away a pair of VIP tickets to one lucky winner.
