Strategic Legacy Building in 2024!

Happy New Year, Pearls!

It is great to be back at the regularly scheduled events. So let's get into it. 

As an urban-based education administrator and passionate advocate for inclusive learning, I understand the power of creating spaces that foster success for BIPOC students. Today, I want to redirect my and your focus to my other dynamic group within our community: Black women mom-preneurs. These incredible individuals embody Strength, Resilience, and Sparkle!—the core elements of the NACR3 Effect. Here's a strategic guide on how you, Pearl, can build your legacy in 2024.

Strength
  • Define Your Purpose: Begin by identifying your passion and purpose. What legacy do you want to leave for your children and the community? This clarity will be the driving force behind your journey.
  • Prioritize Self-Care: Balancing motherhood and entrepreneurship requires self-care. Nurture your well-being to maintain the energy and enthusiasm needed for sustainable success. Remember, taking care of yourself is an investment in your legacy.
  • Continuous Learning: Stay informed and continuously seek opportunities for learning and growth. Attend workshops, webinars, and conferences to stay updated on industry trends and enhance your skills.
  • Leverage Your Strengths: Recognize and harness your unique strengths. As a mom-preneur, you possess a wealth of skills gained from both motherhood and entrepreneurship. Use these strengths to your advantage in every aspect of your business.
Resilience
  • Cultivate Resilience: Entrepreneurship is a journey filled with highs and lows. Develop a resilient mindset to navigate challenges. Embrace setbacks as opportunities for growth, and learn from each experience to emerge stronger.
  • Strategic Networking: Surround yourself with a supportive network. Connect with other mom-preneurs, mentors, and professionals who share your values. Collaborate and exchange insights to expand your knowledge base and business opportunities.
  • Passing on Wisdom: Share your journey and insights with others, especially aspiring mom-preneurs. Act as a mentor or resource, contributing to the growth and success of future generations.
Sparkle!
  • Incorporate Sparkle into Branding: Your brand should reflect the essence of who you are. Infuse sparkle into your branding—something distinctive that sets you apart. Let your sparkle shine, whether it's a signature style, a unique product, or a memorable customer experience.
  • Legacy Planning: Strategically plan for the future. Consider how your business and impact will endure over time. This may involve succession planning, community initiatives, or educational programs that align with your legacy goals.
  • Celebrate Achievements: Acknowledge and celebrate your achievements, no matter how small. Reflect on your progress and use these moments to motivate you.

This year, Nacr3 is looking to increase its impact and village, so be on the lookout for a more interactive platform. Building a legacy as a Black woman mom-preneur is multifaceted and requires intentional focus. Strategical legacy building requires you to be purposeful about your efforts and the intended outcomes. Even if you are at the starting line, let's get ready to go for your dreams. You and I can create a lasting impact beyond your immediate sphere by embracing the NACR3 Effect—Strength, Resilience, and Sparkle!

PEARLs and TAXES

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

Keep On, Keeping On!

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

Pearls, Pods, Purpose

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&#
