Last month I had the pleasure of hanging out with talented Maria of The Maria Antoinette! Maria and I first “met” when she and LaQuisha of Corner Curl Girl over 3 years ago when they had a 30-day natural hair challenge. That’s the first of 2 challenges I’ve actually completed in the last few years by the way…LOL! I’ve had the chance to witness Maria’s business and following grow tremendously over the years and so happy to be able to call her a friend. Not only is she the bomb with hair and makeup, she is genuinely a nice person as well. Nothing worse than someone being pretty on the outside with a heart of stone!

There I said it.
Growing and new things scare the hell out of me!
I’ve failed miserably over the last few years while trying to grow my blog from just some “mommy hobby” into something that I can call a brand…a business!
But I never gave up. Even when the naysayers were like “You should get a real job”.
I’m a creature of habit and I finally realized something had to change and I had to start believing in myself. Screw what others think or if they don’t support me!
