On Wednesday afternoon, we embarked on a lovely journey from Texas to California. I was one of the three finalists nominated for The Mom Entrepreneur of the Year award, presented at the SUCCESS Summit and Expo by Today’s Innovative Woman magazine.
The drive was amazing – and amazingly long, too. We went through beautiful mountains in Arizona and New Mexico, admiring the beauty of God’s creations. The road trip with no stops is 24 hours! It is a literal reminder that no matter how long or hard the journey, God blesses us along the way and gets us safe to our destination.
The South Bay Marriott was wonderful. Next time, I’ll be sure to try to get in the hot tub before 11pm LOL or at least put on my bathing suit after I’ve verified that I can get in. I love hot tubs…what can I say?
The SUCCESS Summit was a magnificent event. The speakers were highly motivational world-class trainers, not only full of wisdom, but care, concern, and heart. It was my second time attending, but certainly not the last. I think every woman who is in business must invest in herself and attend this type of event.
That Friday’s SUCCESS Summit will forever be in my heart! Elisha and Elyssa decided to be a part of the event and I felt so proud that they want to follow on mom’s footsteps. They networked, took notes, learned lots, and exchanged insights with powerful, successful, purposeful women of diverse ages, backgrounds, and walks of life.
More importantly, they got to see their mom receive an award. They have witnessed my dedication, my sacrifice, and my faith in action on the field… Now they start to see the harvest. They now understand that: SUCCESS is an overnight manifestation of many nights of relentless effort.
I am beyond grateful to God and to all the wonderful people who contribute to my happiness and success and who influence my life and my children’s lives. Thank you for helping me become The Mom Entrepreneur of the Year! I WON I WON I WON I WON! [happy celebration dance!]
I feel really honored to have been chosen as the Mom Entrepreneur of the Year. It’s truly a testimony that through vision, faith, preparation, diligence, and discipline, you can achieve your dreams and you can accomplish what may seem impossible. Yes, you… You’re Pure GREATNESS and God has plans to prosper you.
It may take a while for you to reap what you’ve sown. Others may not understand why you work so hard on something that is now invisible, but don’t dismay… if God gave you a vision, He will give you the provision… and it will be more than you could imagine.
I just want to thank you for all your support and your encouragement. I am humbled and so grateful for you!
