Description


In some way, shape, or form we all face adversity. We face times in our lives where we are forced to make a decision that will have an effect on us short term and long term.  How is one’s life going to be lived? How does one adapt? What can one do to show appreciation to others for how far he’s come? What are our motivators? How can we use our life experiences to impact others around us? So much has happened in my life at 40 that I cannot wait to share with the readers.  My goal is to engage the reader in my stories, there are ups and downs, but the attitude is constant and that’s been my biggest takeaway to date. 

They say life begins at 40. I have lived a life that I am thankful to be able to share with a widespread audience if you’ll implore me. Having felt my “aha” moment at the early age of 8 and then having to make life decisions with the support of my family at an earlier age than most.  I knew what I was brought on this earth to do and no one was going to stop me. All the ups and downs have made me stronger.  Stronger than even I could ever imagine.  My life is my own and I am proud to share it with you in hopes that our journeys cross and together we can build this dream together
