Being a woman in business I’ve experienced many challenges. Heck, being an African American woman in business is even more challenging.
Having a dream to own my on company where I create empowering and inspiring content and events for women is no easy task. Especially when the content is not about one specific race of women, but its about all women.
It’s about bring a diverse group of women from all walks of life together to bond, share, encourage and empower one another through our stories, our journeys and life lesson’s.
I learned as a young girl from my mom and dad, to believe life holds no limitations on me. I was never told I couldn’t or wouldn’t be able to achieve anything in life due to me be a female or a woman of color. Instead, my parents told me I was special and whatever I wanted to do, seek God and all would be provided to me.
I’m a firm believer in NO LIMITATIONS. I tell people and women all the time…its not easy to be a woman. We give so much of ourselves to our family, friends, work, community and the things we’re passionate about. Sometimes we give to the point that we forget to take care of the most important person, ourselves.
So, if we can juggle life the way we do, there is no limit to what we can achieve when we set our minds to it and support one another.
As I set out to televise the WTS awards show, everyone thought, yeah right. It was hard to get people to take me serious. One, there has never been a televised awards show for women in Dallas. Two, I was told no one, not even Oprah has ever pulled women from multiple races and backgrounds on one stage for one night to honor and celebrate one another. Saying it would be a challenge is an understatement.
I listened to everyone’s commitments, took it for what it was worth and pressed on. For over a year in half of planning this event I reminded myself there are NO LIMITS to what I can do. Even when raising the capital to pull this show off was almost obsolete. I operated as if I had all I needed.
Just this week, I was told we are over budget and needed another 25K to 30K. Who tells someone a week before a show you need that much in additional funding? Well, I didn’t let that stress me, or stop the show. I got busy coming up with what is needed. I also said cut what’s not needed and move forward.
Again, NO LIMITATIONS. Of course I wish things would run smoothly and I could close my eyes and everything would be done, but its not the current situation today. Perhaps tomorrow, the next day or in the future. Either way, I won’t stop and I won’t limit what I can or can’t do.
I know I do nothing alone. I’m blessed to have an amazing support team, support system and people who believe in me. It is my faith, and the support of others that keeps me going when there is nothing left to give.
Whatever you desire, dream or want to accomplish, tell yourself there are NO LIMITS!
