I’ve learned there are 4 main beliefs women have about makeup:

1. It’s hard

2. It’s time-consuming

3. It’s expensive

4. It’s unnecessary

The truth is:

1. With patience and practice, you CAN learn to do your own makeup, and do it well.

2. It doesn’t have to take forever to apply.

3. You CAN do it all without paying an arm and a leg on products and lessons.

4. Lastly, it’s NOT a necessity but wearing makeup does boost confidence and esteem. It has a way of enhancing not only how you look but also how you feel about yourself.

If you are a professional woman, wearing makeup, even lightly should be a part of your presentation. It shows that you take the time to present the best version of yourself to the world.  And That’s the kind of woman people want to do business with.

Hold On Girl, Let Him Get “It” Through You

One of the ladies that purchased my new book sent me this message:

“So I’m sitting here reading and you have no idea the doors in my mind that your first chapter on fear has unlocked. Shenanigans WOMANNNN I love you so much I’m in tears!”

So often when we find ourselves facing hard seasons in our lives, we believe it’s a bad thing or because of something bad or wrong with us.  And we can even go so far as to believe that we are the only ones dealing with hard stuff.   The truth is, God could be trying to do a work through us.

One day, when I felt like I was mentally and emotionally at my lowest I heard the Holy Spirit say “If only God can get something through you”. I’ve held on to those words and since I released my book (This Is NOT My Life! 10 Steps to Overcoming Fear and Adversity) He has proven himself to be faithful! And when I receive messages like this, it just reminds me that God is using all of the pain I experienced during one of the hardest seasons of my life for a purpose greater than I could’ve ever imagined… And for that I am grateful!

Let this encourage you today, and serve as a reminder to Hold on girl! Let Him get it through you! Whatever the “it” may be in your life, let God get it through you!

For more encouragement, check out Brian Courtney Wilson’s song “A Great Work”. It has truly been an inspiration and blessing to me. It serves as a reminder of what God is doing in my life even when it doesn’t feel that way.

3 Questions Every Female Speaker Should Ask Herself Before Going On Stage

As a speaker, your visual presentation is JUST as important as your oral presentation and content! 

With the number of speakers constantly on the rise, it’s important that when you go to speak at different engagements you not only provide great content to your audience but you do so in excellence ensuring you are looking the part!

I’ve compiled 3 questions every female speaker should ask herself BEFORE going on stage to ensure she not ONLY shows up…. but, that her visual presentation is on point allowing her to make a great and lasting impression!

1. What is the environment?? Casual, Creative or Corporate?

Know your environment

Knowing your environment will give you an idea on their style of dress and that will be your clue on how you dress. The last thing you want to do is show up underdressed at a corporate function or overdressed speaking to students. If you’re unsure visit their website for clues on their dress code.

2. Who’s my audience? CEO’s, Business Professionals, Students, Children?

Know your audience

People want to know that you can relate to them so it’s IMPERATIVE that you know EXACTLY who you’re talking to. You want to show up looking like you know what you’re talking about and looking the part. When booking your engagements ask the question What type of audience will I be speaking to? Do your research to ensure you can APPEAR relatable. Remember this is ALL about LOOKING the part!!

3. Am I overdoing it with makeup and accessories?

Less is more!

The goal is to look like yourself with a little more UMPH!! Your makeup should give you an evenly smooth complexion but you also want to look polished and NATURAL. Heavy overdone makeup can give off the wrong impression and too many accessories can be flashy and SUPER distracting. So be sure to keep it light…. Literally!

Asking yourself these 3 questions will point you in the right direction to ensuring you are presenting your entire self at your best!
