For nearly ten years, I was homeless, sleeping on relative's floor and couches, living in a shelter, and a few nights on the streets. It was one of the toughest seasons of my life. I've overcome homelessness and poverty by changing my mindset, having a budget, and saving more than I spend.
I was the "rich girl" growing up. I've had a designer wardrobe, unlimited funds, cars, jewelry, and no wisdom with any of it. I had allowed my heart to control my choices. I thought I had found my "soulmate." But with a few bad decisions and my accounts in the negative, he ran away. I have gained wisdom, discovered my purpose, rebuilt my life, and living my life for Jesus Christ.
I am not a coach. I am not a credit repair service. I am a young, black woman with a desire to help others not repeat the mistakes I've made and restore, rebuild, and renew their mindset and finances.
I'm no longer willing to financially support "friends" and family to have someone tell me they love me. I love myself and Jesus' love, and that means EVERYTHING TO ME!
Him over them.
I'll be celebrating my 39th birthday on December 2nd. My blog and podcast will also launch on those days.
I'll be sharing resources, money tips, interviews, and answering questions that I am asked on this remarkable journey.
I have no complaints or regrets. All of it was necessary to get me where I needed to be and the woman I am today and the woman I will become.
There's strength in the struggle. There's power in your purpose. -Brooks
