When a Chicago Southsider Goes North

I needed a drastic change, so I took the plunge of moving from the Southside (Chatham) to the Northside in March. Boy, do I now have mixed feelings about it. Originally I was hanging out a lot further north and I thought I got acclimated to it. But finally moving up to the away I realized the Northside life carries a very different culture and vibe.

Cruising the Cayman with The Goal Group

Traveling with a dynamic group of women who could possibly be members of your tribe, sounds like a dream. That’s exactly what I did when when I joined The Goal Group’s trip to cruise to the Grand Cayman/Jamaica. I originally heard about this trip via the instagram of Baje Fletcher (@missbaje) who is an author and life coach. I decided I needed a vacation, to and to see Jamaica so I was all in! read more

Book Review: Law of Attraction

The Law of Attraction is more than just a book, it’s a concept spoken highly of from various successful sources and something the aspiring in my opinion NEED to know. The actual Law of Attraction concept can be defined as “speaking things into existence” or the idea that people can attract the things they desire based on their own state of being. Being a self-acclaimed “feeler” and energy queen, I naturally had to read Michael J. Losier’s book with various tools and gems for success and give an opinion on such.

Bye-Bye Quarter Life Crisis? Thoughts on Age at 26.

How cute are we at Oakbrook Polo Grounds? Check out my friend Saras blog

Over my birthday, I was chatting with my friend about how we used to feel about the age of 25 when we were 18. It seems we had a lot of thoughts in common back then. We set these goals back then to be in careers we loved, places we loved, and with people we loved. We used to look at the age of 25 when we were 18 and think, “Oh gosh that’s old”. We used to look at 25 year old men and say, “Way too old for me!”, and now we are looking at 25-year-old men like “Way to immature”. This conversation became the realization of how vicious age misconception is to us young women. I couldn’t quite put my finger on whether I was really “old”? What is a realistic timeline for the things I desire? Suddenly I realized a few things about myself at this age. read more

Real Estate Wealth Expo: Helping or Hoodwinking?


I had the pleasure of seeing a host of celebrity speakers this Sunday in Chicagoland. Millionaires and billionaires of various fields,  some I never even heard of.  Before the event I recall telling a few people about it only to get told it’d be a scam and that they just want to sell you things. Fortunately my bank account determined all I was buying was a ticket, so I wouldn’t be at a particular loss. Then I got to thinking about how I am always seeking positivity and motivation via books, seminars, and videos to get me going through my projects, yet here I am the rich aunt who is STILL without her millions and growing booklist of self-help books wondering, does-self help really help? What qualifies as self-investment? read more
