Unstoppable: Female Entrepreneur – Katrina Aborisade

I posted something recently about amplifying  the yes in ones life. Too often we talk ourselves out of greatness because we are so busy listening to that inward voice of doubt. Since launching  Janet Michelle, I have come into contact with some of the most amazing women. Women that aren’t afraid to pursue their dreams and passions. Women that have taken life by the horns and are riding the heck out of it. It is, If I must say, totally dope. Even greater, is the ability to bring these stories…

Friends and family poured in to wish Marla well on her new journey.   Marla’s decision made me think about many others that…

It’s not impossible, in most cases you have to shift…

Married to the Job

Are you so married to your job to the point that you are short changing yourself professionally?  I asked myself that question after being on my job for eight years with restricted progress.   I loved what I did, but I realized that my opportunities for increased growth were limited. I also realized that my job no longer fit my talent and skills.  The thought of leaving used to leave me paralyzed. Initially, I made up every excuse to stay. I belonged to a wonderful organization. I was able to obtain…
