2020 triggered a plethora of successes and areas of opportunities for many of us. My goal is always to ensure you that you aren’t alone. The focus is on progress and not perfection. As long as you are moving forward that is what counts. There are those of us who move swiftly because it is an urgency and there are those of us who are moving slower, but perpetually. Just KEEP GOING FORWARD and measure your progress and the health of the progress. The word of God tells us that the race is not given to the swift, but the one who endures until the end. I believe that. I will say I do not want to be left behind though. Haha! I am extremely grateful for the circle of positive and goal oriented souls that I am privileged to work with, live with, do ministry with and so forth.
May 2016, I resigned from my position as a professional school counselor with Shelby County Schools and that has been the best life move ever because that career was a thief of joy for countless reasons. I have since been building a financial services organization with the best in the industry targeting financial independence within the middle income market. The need remains there, the excitement is exhilarating, educating about principles that are uncommon in the community around me is life changing for myself and other families and I am purposed and blessed to be a part of this crusade that releases those from their current financial circumstances into a world of freedom and financial peace.
2020 for many of us dealt a hand of loss, depression and stress, which is so unfortunate. Undoubtedly, the reason why our theme for New Year’s Eve church service is RESET. Know that you are not alone. I know it seems like sometimes the walls are enclosing, there’s more despair than hope, calamity all around, injustices seem unbearable and no relief in sight. My advice, plan your work, work your plan, use your resources, ask for help until you get what you need, and don’t stop praying.
Beneath are my strengths and areas of opportunities for 2020. Though there be areas of opportunities, I am thankful for a year of progress. 2021, I will work on my turn around time being swifter, my persistence and perseverance, attend more Broadway productions (once Covid permits), attend art and trunk shows (once Covid permits), study more history, work in my foundation, volunteer more with my church, live in the moment, love unapologetically and laugh until my stomach aches.
