This past weekend, I had the pleasure of speaking at the Maximize Your Potential: Women of Power LA Mixer. It was truly an honor to speak alongside an amazing panel of beautiful, talented, successful, and inspiring women!
During my presentation, I discussed the importance of pursuing your passion and walking in your purpose. I also had the opportunity to share my story of being laid off from my corporate job, being involved in a near fatal car accident that left me with a shattered ankle and 6 months of being unable to walk, to finally realizing my calling as a business coach and motivational speaker.
When I leave this world, I want to be one hundred percent used up…totally empty. I don’t want to have a drop of talent, knowledge, resources, gifts, etc. that I did not share with the world…and neither should you. So START NOW. That business you want to start, start it. That book you want to write, write it. Whatever it is that you have been wanting to do, there is no better time than the present. It’s time to start walking in your purpose.
Speaking is absolutely my favorite part of my business. I love sharing my story, because it is truly one of perseverance, resilience, and a will to succeed despite any obstacle that may be thrown your way.
As I stated during the opening of my talk “If you get nothing else from hearing my story, I want this to be your takeaway: when God tells you to move (on your purpose), you MOVE.”
So, what are you waiting for? Do you feel that what you are doing right now is what you have been called to do? If not, what do you need to do in order for you to start walking in your purpose?
To Your Prosperity and Success,
Marketing Strategist | Author | Motivational Speaker
