If you boiled life down to one philosophy that brings meaning and adds value to your life no matter what circumstances you face, what is that philosophy for you?

I have taught my daughters that they are precious and uncut diamonds who deserves nothing but the best, so live life to its fullest by stepping out in faith to transform your dreams into reality. Bottom line, this is my philosophy in life!

What are one or two keys to success for you? 

The two keys to success for me have been (1) stepping out in faith and (2) believing in God's promise that he will supply all of my needs and desires based on his Word.

What is one of the biggest mistakes you've made and what did you learn from it?

I launched a business without proper planning, sufficient clients to sustain a salary, and hiring employees too soon. What I learned was it takes time to launch a business. I also learned you must consistenly invest in building and serving your clientele.

What is your best advice for people who want to SHOW UP AND SHINE? In other words, what would you say to help people live into their bigger story?

Put your trust in God and keep him factored in your equation of success. Additionally, stand strong in your faith and believe in yourself.


Question: Letrise shared a lot about her faith. In what do you place your faith and how does this help you show up and shine in life and work?
