InPOWERmeant Dream Coach™

My first public speaking engagement was at 12 years old. I remember it vividly. The feeling of having the audience entertained, captive, and inspired by my voice established a life long passion as a public speaker. I enjoy speaking and have a lot of fun doing it. As keynote speaker, facilitator, workshop leader, panel guest, or guest on radio and TV. I've learned to incorporate a balance of humor in serious topics. It is an art and I love customizing my message to your theme. I find joy in instigating, agitating, and inspiring audiences with engaging, powerful, transforming messages of hope.

 

I began writing poetry and short stories as a pre-teen, i learned at a young age paper is nonjudgmental. Those reading however may have a few more opinions. Dynamic, relatable, and raw is what many who read my books say. Author of 12 books including bestselling Moving Forward in the face of Adversity, It's Not You, It's Me, Dream BIG, Dream Catcher, and my latest release BReaThe. Be it a novel, inspirational, or poetic all of my writing journeys the reader through the message of hope and faith. You can host an Inspirational Cafe' my version of a book signing and book read with your group or bookclub more information contact direct.

 

I coined InPOWERmeant Dream Coach™ to reflect my personal coaching style of coaching. The place where dreams are manifested. What is your dream, deepest desire, divine purpose? Are you at a crossroad or roadblock and not sure what, where, or how to start? Do you know you are in-powered to accomplish your dreams?  Perhaps you are tired of the same-ol' thing. I'm not an ordinary Coach, together we work your muscle of faith and develop your gene of good success. Once and for all you will move pass your doubts and fears and experience explosive results.

You Again?… is a riveting and provoking story of one woman, Iris, and her spiritual journey to the understanding of her purpose in life. Iris never knew her father, who was killed when she was two. Her mother later told her that her father was gay. This story reveals vivid characters and experiences that reach across social and economic backgrounds. The narrative opens with Iris in a very dark, lonely and depressed place. Often torn between men and God, her life is in chaos. She characterizes these men as “Mr.’s.” Simple and obvious choices are muted with failures, fears and insecurities. “Mr. let us take on the world” wants to get married, but she was not yet over “Mr. I will do anything for you.” Tired of tired and tired of talking about tired, Iris decides to embark on a life-changing experience. She has no idea if she will find a real solution to her failed relationships,career and life, but knows that something has got to change.
