What is your WHY?

I love people and I love to help people. I want to see them win, succeed, be great, and fulfill their purpose. In addition, I want to pass the baton of faith to the next generation. I want to set the example that if they work hard, have integrity, and depend on their faith in God, they can find their why (purpose) and persevere through life’s difficulties.

On your toughest of days, what motivates you to put one foot in front of the other?

What motivates me are my faith and family and friends who support me. Attending Bible study and church regularly helps me build and maintain my faith. There is usually a Word that is right on point with what I need and gives me the encouragement to keep going. My family and friends consistently encourage me and offer patient, gentle, and constructive criticism when needed. They often make out-of-the-blue phone calls to tell me that they see me, they love, and are proud of me. Those phone calls tend to be right when I need them.

Have you drawn inspiration from other women? Tell us about someone who has inspired you.

My mother inspires me every day. She lights up a room with her elegance and stature. Her energy draws people to her, and, at the end of their interaction, she leaves a joyous presence that makes her even more memorable. She has a heart to help others and serves her community. She exudes strength that in turn gives me strength and motivates me to grow without any barriers. She is my prayer warrior, my sounding board, my dance partner, my friend, my rider, my homie, but most importantly she is my mother.

What is the one word that perfectly explains who you are?

Risk-taker

Would you change anything about how you have handled challenges or successes thus far in your life?

I wouldn’t change a thing. I believe that nothing just happens. All the challenges, successes, and how I’ve handled them have developed my character, imparted empathy, and have given me the strength and courage to preserve through life’s difficulties. Everything that has happened my life, the bad decisions, even the things that I mislead myself to believe I should’ve or could’ve changed, have worked out for my good.

What are you most proud of?

Although I’m proud of my achievements, I can honestly say that what’s more important and what I’m most proud of is my growth, my mental fortitude, spiritual tenacity, and emotional intelligence. The deaths of loved ones, hurt from people who should have loved me, rejection, and pain, I did not let any of those challenges hinder my growth. I’ve always had this cany ability to forgive and push forward.


What is the biggest challenge you have faced and what did you learn from it?

The biggest challenge that I have faced is starting multiple businesses with little experience in each of those areas. I started my law firm, LCR Legal, in 2012, my nonprofit, The Love, Compassion, and Resolve Project in 2013, and Kalon Karisma Hair and Beauty in 2018.  It goes back to being a risk-taker. I’ve learned that no matter the challenges and fears, face the challenges head on and do it afraid. My biggest risks have created the most challenges, but they have also given the greatest rewards. “If you are not willing to risk the unusual, you will have to settle for ordinary.” Jim Rohn
