The hand we are dealt in life is beyond our control. The choices that we make is what truly makes the difference. Life is not always easy, but you need to believe that the journey is always worth it. Yes, there will be tough times; yes, there will be depressing times; yes, there will be times when you feel like you do not have the energy to make it anymore. But how you respond to those unpleasant times will set you apart from everyone else.

I know that growing up fatherless or motherless is not ideal for any child or any family; however, that is something that is beyond our control. Your focus needs to be on things that you do have control over. The only person you have control over is yourself. Trust me, I know the emotional trauma you endured growing up in a single parent home. It was not always an easy task for me, either, but through it all, I overcame the struggles. After the storm clears up, the sun is there, shining with such passion. God is with you every step of the way, through the good and the bad. So, I want every boy and girl, every man and woman to know that you are not alone. Success is on the other side of the struggles and obstacles.

Look at me - just a small-town girl from Greenville, SC, with big-city dreams. I have a bachelor's degree in administration and management. Also, I am the business owner of KidzFusion, which is a mobile kids’ fitness company. These are just a couple of my accomplishments and trust me, my journey is far from over. I know it may sound a bit cliché, but it is the truth. I overcame so much on my journey and accomplished so many things along the way. My vision has always been clear. Now, I want to give you advice from my perspective and experiences. To show you that you are not alone. To give you a support system within me and to guide you in whichever way I possibly can do so. Your blessing is at the top of that steep hill you must climb!

I was born to become a successful entrepreneur. My passion for others shines in every aspect of my life. Growing up in Greenville, South Carolina, I developed a deep love for people that translates into a protective instinct to help others on all levels. Whether I am giving advice, being a listening ear, volunteering my time to my community, or just being there for my loved ones as well as strangers I come across who needs my help and support. Driven and ambitious is something I have always been since my childhood years. I have always been naturally gifted to be self-motivated. I strived to have the grades it would take to obtain a top-level college education, and my decision to major in business was part of my master plan to own multiple businesses. I graduated from the University of South Carolina Upstate with a BS in Business Administration and Management. My first business venture was KidzFusion, a mobile kids’ fitness program that I launched in 2014.

My book, Fatherless Success, will allow me to help others who suffered from similar hardships of life due to the lack of a parent, whether a father or mother, being absent growing up. Now my story can help me empower others; and continue to be a mentor to not only children, but adults as well. I look forward to being your support system, and showing you that you are not alone in your process of healing and overcoming adversity in life.
