  • A Reminder To Stay In Integrity With Yourself/Your Faith So That You Aren't Attaching Your Name To Opportunities That May Not Be For You.

    Something recently happened on my end that was an excellent reminder for me to do what I believe is right/stay in integrity with my morals and faith and I absolutely had to share it here on the show. I had the opportunity to work with a brand that MANY influencers partner with but Iturned it down because it didn't sit right in my spirit. It ended up being the right decision even though on the front end it seemed like I missed out on a great opportunity.

    Listen for more deets and use this episode as a reminder to use your discernment when possible, even if it means not moving forward with any type of opportunity.

    Hey, hey! This week's episode is a little different! After saying for some time now that I'd be doing BGSC videos on Youtube, I've recorded my first real video. This process is absolutely not comfortable for me but I want to show you that it's possible to follow your purpose even when it feels scary to put yourself out there.

    In this weeks episode, which is audio from the YT video, I'm reintroducing myself, sharing my thoughts on how money does NOT motivate me as I walk in my purpose, and how there are times that even though on the outside appearances can be one thing, on the inside they can be COMPLETELY different.
