Your team should be smarter.

It takes a village. Find yours and rely on it!
Trust your process. Don’t seek permission for your significance or approval for your brilliance. Support your sisters and brothers.
Don’t let fear of jumping prevent you from taking the first step!
Dress for the role you want, not the role you have.
Keep everything in perspective and take good, NO great care of yourself.
Wake up every morning and remember you don’t have what it takes to be average.
Your business is built at the speed of relationships.
Always aspire to inspire… Spread love.
You can always figure out a creative solution to whatever challenge you are encountering between work and life. Sometimes you have to think outside the box!
