When did you start your blog/business?
The A Random’s Life lifestyle blog started in 2011 but rebranded in 2015.
What triggered you to pursue your dreams and begin creating the life you want?
So many people have testimonies that they never share. But God lets LIFE happen to us so that we may encourage one another to get through the rough times. I felt I had a lot of stories that could help someone along their journey.
What do you enjoy most about living life on your own terms?
I have peace and joy doing what I am called to do. It’s a good feeling knowing that someone will benefit from me walking in purpose.
How are you living out your purpose?
God gives us all talents and gifts. One of mine is being able to provide encouragement and motivation to others through stories. I know that this is what I am supposed to be doing because it feels good and I enjoy it.
Describe an a-ha moment.
A Random’s Life started because of a situation in which I shared some information I shouldn’t have. I was so convicted I wrote a story about it which is titled, “Was it something I said?...Yup!” Fortunately, I was able to repair the friendship and felt compelled to continue sharing stories about my life lessons.
What does being free mean to you?
It means living on your own terms and allowing God to use you how He sees fit.
What has been your biggest challenge pursuing your purpose?
Fear was my biggest hurdle. I had to push forward through the fear knowing that God is with me.
What does your ideal day look like?
Well, I am a magazine editor full time, but I take some time in the morning and evening to devote to A Random’s Life. Prayerfully, the A Random’s Life brand will evolve allowing me to devote all my time into building the brand.
What’s one thing that you want people to know about you or your business?
I am passionate about helping women and men succeed in life. All of the testimonies, stories and podcasts mean a lot to me and I take helping others seriously.
How do you stay encouraged?
I stay motivated by reading God’s word, prayer and reciting affirmations.
What are you most proud of?
The fact that I pushed past my fears and trusted God. It’s not always as easy it seems, but God has never failed me.
How do you support other women?
I am an advocate for the empowerment of women, and I love attending events and spreading the word about other’s business ventures.
What is your favorite affirmation or quote?
I am more than good enough and I get better everyday. This affirmation encourages me to go the extra mile.
What’s your favorite book?
Well, the bible is a wealth of knowledge. LOL But if I had to choose one it would probably be The Coldest Winter Ever by Sistah Souljah. I read this book years ago and it was very eye opening.
What exciting things do you have planned for 2015?
Right now, I am just working on perfecting A Random’s Life’s content and building audience engagement. We will see what 2015 will bring!
