I started writing to heal after losing my sister to cancer last year. I decided to share my thoughts as I realized I might be able to help someone else. The response I have received has been heartwarming.

Thank you for supporting my journey thus far by taking the time to read, write comments, and share my posts. You have inspired me to continue to do what I love.
Six years ago, when I worked in public accounting, I thought about writing a book.
I put together the outline, but I decided not to move forward with the idea.
I believe that the timing and topic were not right. However, last year, the thought crossed my mind again.

I felt in my heart that I needed to put my book in the universe, and do my part to increase financial literacy in my community. That’s when I decided to embark on a journey to write my first book.
I had no idea where to start. I fought the voices in my head telling me I was not an author, and I started anyways. I did the research, I put in the time, and I invested in myself. When the pandemic began, I didn’t stop; I kept going.
Eight months later, this idea I had in my head is finally coming together.
My book, Dream of Legacy, Raising Strong, and Financially Secure Black Kids, is available for preorder in the Dream of Legacy Store NOW (more coming soon).
Do you have an idea that scares you? Don’t let the fear of failure stop you.
Don’t give up on it. It is best to try and fail than to live with regrets. GO FOR IT. If you believe in a Higher Power as I do, put your best foot forward, and let things unfold.
