I’ve been experiencing a lot of exposure as of late. Between my TEDx Talk and the publishing of my book “Financially Irresponsible”, I’ve had multiple people reach out or pick up my story. From local podcasters to IHeart Radio and Black Enterprise Magazine, the word is getting out.
What strikes me most however is when individual people write me to let me know how my work has impacted them, or come to me sincerely looking for advice. I think at the heart of what I do, THIS is the goal. To make a difference and inspire people to create change in themselves.
Recently, a woman wrote me letting me know her situation and asked me for help. She had shared that she had read an article about me and wanted to make a change. The reason this is so impactful is that most people are too fearful or too proud to begin to utter the words help.
I poured as much as I could into my response.
Surely the mini essay I wrote won’t change her situation, but I believe the gesture to be enough to give encouragement and a place to start. I also became inspired.
I want more people to write me and share with me not only their struggles and inquiries, but their successes and wins! I would like to invite anyone reading this to head on over to my website and send me a message via the contact us form, or send me a DM on my various social media handles. One thing i’ve learned is that if you don’t know it, someone else probably doesn’t either!
Thanks for your time.
