How I went from corporate burnout to running a ministry, business & community programs I love, now helping thousands do the same
Building any ministry or business takes hard work and perseverance just like a marriage.
But building a ministry or business you love and that doesn’t feel like work takes a whole lot more.
This is my Journey
I was working tirelessly covering over 300 cases in addition to the Chief Attorney’s media-sensitive cases praying to find something else, something more fulfilling when I was T-boned in a car accident leaving an agency training on my day off. I remember God telling me to go back to school & I did.
I was a remarried wife, mother of 5, disabled, Master’s degree student but with determination and support I finished and started a small private practice & ministry after going through a long transition with myself.
Business was great it was founded with the focus of a great purpose, had a mission, a vision & values. I also finished the Doctorate program. Yeah, I did it, I was able to serve in a major way built on a Godly foundation for my business and was about to become a Ph.D. grad. It was also my 1st year of almost making it into the 7 figures club. The Ministry, Private Practice and small Private school this was the start of an empire.
This was a year where I added multiple streams of revenue, we also grew rapidly, and entered into the 7 figures club. I also ventured into product creation and started a Spa product & Hair extension line, in addition to the ministry, private practice, small private school but also started to lose sight of our foundational principles which was prayer & obedience.
Things still growing but never let your heart to serve, lead you into the ground (mentally, emotionally, physically & financially). It seemed like things were great, we hit another 7 figures that year. I started venturing into coaching, I actually hired a coach who advised me to make some changes in my business, that should have been in place from the beginning for business and personal protection.
Early that year we were already into 6 figures from the multiple streams of revenue. Just about to implement the final phase of protecting my business structure and revamping employee procedures **BOOM** an employee had committed fraud 2 years prior, which I made an agreement to close my private practice turn mental health community center. I was crushed, devastated, felt like a failure. Back to praying, discernment & obedience.
I felt sorry for myself, I felt like I lost everything, but I didn’t. I had to refocus on the positive things, get back to the Godly foundations for my coaching practice and other business ventures. I had to get clear and aligned in my businesses. I needed a Purpose, an Aim, a Map, to Profit and to Score= PAMPS.
I was focused, having fun teaching women entrepreneurs and coaches how to get clear, how to align and monetize the purposeful business. I also consulted with Mental Health professional on credentialing, compliance & billing for starting and or maintaining a successful practice without negative impact. I also helped churches, ministries, and non-profits expand into adding multiple streams of revenue.
After having some success, I still wasn’t feeling fulfilled and my baby girl became really sick. During the journey of coping with a chronically ill child, God made things even more clearer to me. I dived deep into what made me successful and fulfilled.I helped my husband to shift his mindset and applied the processes that made me so successful.
I now help Kingdom driven entrepreneurs to start and increase their influence, income and impact using ministry, business and community programs, so they can feel fulfilled in their call, purpose and passion. I now get to serve in a major way in many areas where I am blessed to have educational and or real life experience and training.
