How Are You Leveling Up?

    Empowering BIPOC women has been at the heart of my passion and expertise, and it's with great respect and admiration that we delve into the significance of this year, 2023, and next year 2024, through the empowering lens of the NACR3 approach Strength, Resilience, and Sparkle! They mark a profound juncture in your journey, representing the transition to the next level of accomplishment and maturity while safeguarding your brand and integrity.

Strength: This year, 2023, you are standing at the threshold of transformation, exuding an innate strength that has been cultivated through life's experiences. Just as the roots of a tree anchor it firmly to the ground, your strength serves as the foundation upon which you've built your dreams and aspirations. Your dedication to creating communities exemplifies the power of strength as you navigate challenges and overcome obstacles with unwavering determination. This year heralds a period of harnessing your inner strength to drive meaningful change, empowering you to continue shaping a brighter future.

Resilience: As you plan into the 2024 year, resilience becomes your steadfast companion. Resilience is the ability to bounce back stronger from adversity, and it mirrors the growth that occurs in the face of challenges. Your journey, much like a phoenix rising from the ashes, showcases your remarkable resilience. This year signifies the culmination of lessons learned and the resilience gained, enabling you to adapt, innovate, and evolve. Just as a river carves its path through even the toughest terrain, your resilience propels you forward, ensuring that every setback is a stepping stone toward greater accomplishments.

Sparkle: The essence of sparkle lies in embracing your unique identity and radiating your authentic self with confidence and charisma. From 2023 through 2024, you can and should embody the Spirit of The Sparkle! by embracing your individuality and allowing your brilliance to shine through. Just as stars illuminate the night sky, your sparkle illuminates the lives of those you touch. This age is a celebration of your achievements and an invitation to infuse your endeavors with passion, creativity, and authenticity. The sparkle you bring to your work ensures that your brand remains a beacon of inspiration and innovation.

Navigating the journey of leveling up from 2023 to 2024 while safeguarding your brand and integrity demands a conscious effort to harmonize the three pillars of the  NACR3 approach. Your strength fortifies your commitment to creating community and tribes of support, your resilience fuels your ability to overcome challenges, and your sparkle infuses your work with a radiant spirit that captivates and uplifts.

In the tapestry of your life,  both 2023 and 2024 are threads woven with accomplishment and maturity. They symbolize your ascent to the next level of influence, marked by the unwavering preservation of your brand and integrity. As you continue to empower BIPOC women and shape the entrepreneurial landscape, may you find Strength in your journey, Resilience in your challenges, and an ever-glowing Sparkle! in your endeavors.

Good day Pearls , Now that the holiday season has come to an end our next big endeavor is TAX TIME! Of course, tax time tends to overwhelm the best of us but fiscal responsibility for business owners and individuals should not be frightful as long as you are preparing yourself accordingly. Though you may be quite familiar with filing your own taxes, don’t assume you are an expert with your small business tax responsibilities. In 2020, Pearls are Financially Strong, Resilient and Luminous. We, women small business owners need to ensure that we are rendering our businesses/side hustles healthy in all fiscal avenues. To prepare for this blog entry, I took the opportunity to speak with a Certified Public Accountant in the DC Metropolitan area with over 20+ years of experience to give some pointers on keeping your hustle solid and fiscally sound. Mr. Robert L. Waller, CPA/CFE , was eager to provide direction for Women Small Business Owners on a few questions regarding responsibiliti

Dear Pearls,  Thank you for patiently awaiting the next blog post of Nacr3! Covid-19 has been a major interruption in the flow of everyone's lives from our children to our elderly. Everyone has been impacted in a major way in all areas of their livelihoods: socio-economic, mental health, emotional health, family and friend relationships, and physical health. No one can doubt that it's highly unlikely that things will return to be 100 percent the same as our Pre-COVID lives, but Pearls this world-wide pandemic (both Covid-19 and BLM) has taken a toll on us all and we should look to recollect and emerge as the Pearl you are! Just think of COVID/BLM as the irritant our little oyster needed to create the best that is within us.  During the brief hiatus, every other day, week, and month I continued to contemplate the scope and sequence of the blog yearly outline. The first 2 weeks of March until the present day has shown me a few things about my own Nacr3. And I figured that I can&#

Hey Pearls! The day has arrived when my solo writing project is complete. It is your pathway into my circle and my village. Grace Under Pressure: A Southern Belle in the City has arrived and is ready for purchase.  This labor of love took reflection, self-critique, dedication, and self-actualization. So, today we are going to acknowledge how this process can be the result of pearl-forming activities. I took the past 22 months to write the first installment of my journey as a village keeper. Traveling down this road of reflection required a lot of soul-searching, speaking truth to those things that held mental manipulation in my life, and building my knowledge about the behaviors and psychological attributes that impact my perspective and outlook on life.  Grace Under Pressure helped me build my strength as a woman because I learned a lot about myself and truly understood my pieces. Reflection and Self-critique allow for one to seriously consider their thinking, how it originated, and
