Trailblazing Single Moms Dream Vacation
Growing up, I watched my resilient single mom juggle motherhood while being an entrepreneur, holding down multiple jobs, and attending school. Determined to expose her children to a different way of life, she somehow found time to reach out for help and enroll us in programs that let us see a different way of life.
She also showed us the importance of volunteering and giving back. I was enrolled as a candy striper at Dekalb Medical Center at age 13 and was also paired with a mentor through Big Brother and Big Sister of Metro Atlanta. God would have it that my mentor Marsheila and I share the same birthday, and we are still sisters that stay in touch to this very day.
I hope I can pay it forward as I work with all women in business. However, I am always inspired in a special way when a single mother is still finding a way to keep going without the added support of a spouse. What an amazing example for children. It definitely paid off in my case.
THE DREAM GOAL
I quickly learned there's no better feeling than sharing something amazing with others and seeing the excitement in their eyes. My dream is to take a group of trailblazing single mothers with me on my dream vacation at Sir Richard Branson's Private Island, NECKER ISLAND. Why NECKER? Well, during my pause, I did a powerful assignment that forced me to find a place that would become a new dream-come-true vacation. I decided to elevate the dream and share it with others who more than likely have no idea it exists and could benefit even more from peace of mind and the power of nature at its best.
While on the island, I'd like to host a transformation workshop for the single moms and celebrate who they are while equipping them with tools to awaken their full potential on a deeper level. Can you imagine the experience of having someone pour into them with no strings attached? Just a chance to get a break and enjoy being pampered and transformed in an exotic location? The very thought of giving them an opportunity that some of them may not experience otherwise makes me smile. I am looking for supporters and sponsors to make this dream a reality.
When we inspire hope, we change the world. Imagine someone lost in an alley at midnight with no streetlights. That is a dark place. What if someone appeared with a flashlight? Everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, changes because they have a guide. No matter what direction they choose to go, they now have a glimmer of light and a hope that taking another step could lead to a different place. Believe it or not, I have had a few moments just that dark in my past, and I am sure you can relate. I want to share that light with those women who may not have anyone else rooting for them other than their children.
