I know many of you are getting ready to drive the boat at an HBCU Homecoming or sitting back and enjoying your Friday night. Either way, it’s the weekend and I know you have something planned.
I wanted to check in with you. I haven’t said much since I released my #1 Kindle Amazon Best-Seller, Girl, Keep Going: Healing is now in Session. Honestly, a lot of good has happened since and I’m tryna manage my brand expansion. I mean, I can barely keep up. I’m excited and feel a sense of freedom that I have been yearning for, since I became a full-time freelancer in 2016 but I am tired as hell.
When I released my book, I had no real expectation as far as ranking. My main concern is that women found it easy to read, useful, and familiar. So when I was alerted that not only did the self-help book rank but was number one (for 2 weeks) I was shocked. I mean, I was overjoyed and speechless (which doesn’t happen often). At the same time, my consulting services were being utilized more than ever. I had so much going on at one time that I honestly wasn’t prepared for.
I had a plan but my plan wasn’t big enough, if that makes sense. I knew I had to host events surrounding my book and other thangs but I had no idea I would do a full out tour, press run, and everythang else in-between. It’s like the Universe decided that this would be a plentiful harvest. The most plentiful yet and it was my time to be rewarded.
Which brings me to my next point–expanding my business. As many know, I do a lot as it relates to the communications field. From content to SEO, I do everythang and instead of downplaying my talents, as previously, I am using them to propel me forward. Now, I have a full digital marking firm that I’m currently building. But that means I have to hire people and what not.
It’s crazy how life happens. I’ve been doing this since 2012 and finally thangs are coming full circle. Seven years of perseverance and I am finally getting what’s mine. Lawd, knows I have paid my dues. A lifestyle of freedom, financial security, pleasure, peace, relevancy, and affluence, as well as influence is definitely alive and well in my life. I love it!
So that’s what I’ve been up to. I’ve been trying to catch up with the Universe. I was prepared but not for what God had for me, lmaooo! I mean, I did the best I could and he blew my mind though. I’ll share all deets soon enough but I’m happy, healthy, and healing.
My official book tour kicks off in Dec and I’m announcing deets next week. I’m so damn excited because there’s so much in store…sooo much! EEEEKKK!
Eventually comes eventually…
