Because of my constant battle with sickle cell anemia, keeping a stable employment record was just as challenging as keeping a stable educational record, but I maintained and let the Lord God work for me in all aspects of my life.
That's why at the ripe age of 35, I changed and challenged myself to be the ultimate me I could be. I started a professional business entered a new positive enduring relationship, and catered to my God and children more than ever. Rumors of deceased sickle cell patients dying before the age 35 made me realize just how blessed I truly was. Sure I've always knew I was blessed but now I'm able to witness just how much.
I would’ve, like most, taken my blessings with a grain of salt laid around all day receiving government assistance, claiming "I'm not worth more than  nothing because I'm an unfortunate sickly" Or always had my hand out choking the system hollering "gimme gimme", but I couldn't see that and I surely couldn't bare to see my kids growing up following the same routine. I wanted to show my children that even though some are a ill misfortune it doesn't mean you give up, no, just the opposite, you keep pushing and you achieve all goals within you hearts desire! Nothing is impossible as long as you keep God first He can do all things above and beyond anything you can imagine!

Offline Marketing


I have started a business back in jan. of this year Party Planning . I have always had WONDERFUL ideas to do things to make money or to be anything but labeled "the sickly one" as my mothers side of the family seems to have named me. Feel like Denise from the Cosby Show with my ideas though lol.

Honestly I feel a lil too old to have nothing under my belt besides my kids. Getting this business off the ground though is like wow!!! Where do I start how do I get goin' my goodness! My family has their own businesses: my brother does video my father does photography, but none of them will even tell me where to start how to start who to go to or nada jeesh I am on my lonesome doing the best I can feelin urged to give up but at the same time to keep goin. Everytime I look at my kids I'm reminded of why I'm investing my time anyway!

my famm


All my life I've liked to travel there is sooooo much more to see than stayin stuck in my city St. Petersburg, Fl, don't get me wrong, St. Pete is a beautiful place but there's a huge world out there with just as much beauty. Because of my illness though, I'm kind of confined, not knowing when or where I'll come into contact with my next Sickle Cell crisis, so, I stay close to my surroundings.

Sitting at home getting tired of my everyday routine has lad me to where I am today. I hunted, searched, and tried every school online and stay at home job I could find, with no avail. My disability income was killing my mood to have fun and enjoy life how I truly wanted. So one day, my brother had an Asian wedding in December, I had developed a beautiful bond with the wedding planner after I had told her my dreams of becoming a party planner, and traveling and making people gape with awe by the way things were put together. The wedding planner told me that planning a party is one of the most exciting yet easiest things to do, "you could do it with your eyes closed," but because of your illness, you wont be able to do it alone. Find your passion, but I believe you can do it. So all through my brothers wedding preparation she kept checking on me and assuring me that I could actually achieve the goal of becoming a party planner. She was right!

My first party was weird though, I didn't know where to start, how to start, or what exactly to do. So I had a lingerie party. It wasn't what I expected, but the ladies had fun, they loved the food and decorations and th atmosphere was just amazing! And that's when I knew...Party Planning was for me! I got my business cards made and started my research on party planning. There where lots of schools that had courses for Event & Wedding Planning but none on party planning. So I called my brother's wedding planner and she explained to me that I shouldn't want to sit there giving my money away to a school for a certificated to learn how to do something I already knew how to do. She also explained that she never went to school for wedding planning, it was in her passion.

So I got on it...I ordered books, tapped into websites, found vendors and even set myself up a free website. I was shocked when Some one from my lingerie party explained they wanted me to plan their Diva theme party for them. My turn to shine! Yesssssss! I did everything on my own, it would have been better to have the help that I needed but, I was just getting started in the business. The party was great and every one was happy and satisfied. Exactly what I wanted. After the party I found a free business 101 class in Tampa and was amazed that I had took all the right steps in starting my business just as the speaker had said. I was so proud of myself. Learning all the permits, licensing and other necessary needed paperwork has bought me where I am today. A certified party planner.

Now, I plan to expand. Hire more people to my team, market and advertise more and excel in all aspects. So if your looking for a way to earn a few dollars for part time work and have marketing, advertising and partying experience, Inbox me and let me know!
