The Full Story
When I published my first blog in 2008, I had no idea I'd be here today. Back then there was no such thing as Instagram, YouTube was just in its startup stages, and the words influencer and marketing were never used in the same sentence. But a LOT has changed since then!
Fortunately for me, I've been able to stay at the forefront of social media and move seamlessly from one focus area to the next while preserving my authenticity and my love for helping women.
If someone would have told me my little o'l hair blog would pave the way for me to become the CMO of my own company (Brown Sugar Vacations), a travel vlogger, award-winning marketing expert and speaker, commercial model, author, star in an Emmy considered docuseries, and an OG natural hair YouTuber – I would have literally rolled on the floor laughing.
After all, my real passion is my family. I take great pride in my roles of wife and mom and no matter what Google says about me, my family supersedes all of it.
Don't get me wrong, I'm über proud of what I've been able to build and extremely grateful for the space I have to continue to pour into others and Nspire them in some way.
With that said, I'm thankful for you and do not take for granted the time you've taken out of your day to read my story, watch my videos, read my blogs, or scroll through my social media. I'm excited about what this next chapter holds–not just for me, but for you, too. It has been quite the journey yet there is still so much more to my story that will be written.
If you feel compelled to do so, I invite you to subscribe to my YouTube channel and follow me on Instagram. If you do, drop a 🦄 in the comments of my last post to let me know!
