I’m a writer, speaker, encourager, copywriter, and consultant. I help aspiring women embrace their personal stories and use it to become better in life and connect more in business. Growing up with teenage parents (literally,) being raised by my grandmom, and living in the hood with little to no income, created an eventful childhood.
Growing up with teenage parents (literally,) being raised by my grandmom, and living in the hood with little to no income, created an eventful childhood. I grew up fast, experienced things earlier than I should have, and had to work my way through some traumatic circumstances before understanding this: Circumstances don’t make you, they show you who really are.”
My story isn’t pretty. Working through it got ugly at times. But, my story has been my greatest gift.
I’ve used it for my good and I share it, and teach you to embrace and use yours, so that you can be inspired and empowered to create a dope life and business.
THIS SPACE AND MY WORK IS DEDICATED TO THE
the WOMAN WHO IS STRONG
BECAUSE SHE HAS TO BE AND NOT BECAUSE SHE WANTS TO BE. TO THE EXPERIENCED WOMAN WHO HAS BEEN THROUGH SOME THINGS AND HAS A STORY TO
TELL. TO THE
WHO WANTS TO CREATE A
BRAND MESSAGE THAT MEANS
SOMETHING AND MAKES
The Nakeia Inspired Shop is where you will find products created to serve as tangible peptalks.
Each product was designed to remind you, and the people who see you rocking your keychain, wearing your shirt, sipping from your mug, and sporting your snap back not to settle in life, love, or business.
Wear it. Live it. Share it.
Write the words your people need to hear. Or, let me write them for you. Don’t shrink your story, your voice, your personality, your humor, or your point of view because you want to sound “professional” or fit into your industry. Use it. Tell your real story, in your real voice, to connect, relate, capture, and make money. You have an audience that loves to hear from you every day, let’s give them what they want.
Nothing happens to you. It happens for you, through you, and because of you. Learn how to use the story of your life (even the stuff you hate) to become the person you were created to be. Don’t be defined by your story, be great because of it. Don’t settle for the story other people like to tell about you, create the story you want to be known for.
I think 2019 may be my biggest year of growth in at least a decade. Seems fitting since we have just entered a new decade. And although I am just as hype as everyone else, I have spent the last few days resting after and emotionally exhausting year. I have healed. I have released. I […]
During this time of year everyone’s talking about resolutions, hosting vision board parties, and sharing their goals. Don’t believe the hype! According to Inc.com, researchers say about 60 percent of us make New Year’s resolutions but only about 8 percent are successful in achieving them. And even after years of not achieving a single resolution, […]
I have battled depression since I was 9 years old. I didn’t know that until a few years ago. I knew I was moody. I knew I was often sad. I knew there were times when all I wanted to do was sleep (but couldn’t.) I knew I would overeat when I felt emotional. I […]

Join me, every week, on Don’t Settle The Podcast. A podcast that will remind you of those deep conversations you have with your best friend, those real-talk sessions you wish you could have with your therapist, those awkward chats (you avoid) with your spiritual leader, and those things you will never admit to because… well, it’s embracing.
The Don’t Settle Podcast is where we will chat about what’s good, what’s not, and what will be when we choose not to settle. You in? Come through…
