What Is Your Work Style?

Happy Monday!

This week we’re taking a deeper look into 4 different types of work styles.

Are you a Planner, a Task Queen, a Stylist or a Visualizer?

All of these work styles are valid and useful, but they all have tendencies that can keep you from being as productive as you can possibly be. Join me here on the blog Tuesday-Friday for insight into each work style and how to use them to build your team and maximize production.

To join my email list engineered specifically toward Introverts for guidance on finding your voice and becoming a better communicator email and enter Introvert Email List in the subject line.

The Biggest Secrets to Communicating as an Introvert

For those of us who are Introverts, a need to feel safe and prepared is always present for us to show up as our best selves for important conversations.

With the purpose of conversation being to exchange ideas and information, how can we effectively do that if we are feeling overwhelmed or anxious about what to say, how to get noticed or how to

keep our palms from sweating during the process!

Perhaps you are like me and crave interactions that aren’t forced and provide freedom for you to show up as your true, authentic self.

Maybe you long for genuine connections that will hold space for you, your voice and your ideas.

If this sounds like you, you’re definitely in the right place!

I’ve prepared a resource filled with solutions to help you become a valued contributor in any conversation.

Most people understand that effective communication is an essential component for being noticed and taken seriously when it truly counts.

I am here to help you achieve this by equipping you with a guide that will show you:

  1. How to use silence as your power tool

  2. How to show up better prepared for the conversation

  3. How to increase the value of your voice

  4. How to freely express your personality and lean into the conversation by leveraging your strengths

These tips are my go-to for showing up ready for the conversation!

Grab your free resource right here for free:

And if you happen to be an Introvert, an advocate of an Introvert or someone who simply wants to gain tips for effective communication, complete the contact form below to be added to a special email list dedicated to these types of resources.

Let’s Socialize!

I’m in my Rejuvenate Season at Origins of Peace! To celebrate we are taking time to relax, relate, release and eat!
Social Wellness is my top priority right now. I’ve created an event entitled Socialize to help you become a better friend while giving yourself the love and care that you need to thrive.
Details for the event and a link to purchase tickets are below.

Don’t Miss this!

As an added bonus for my email subscribers only, everyone who purchases a ticket will be entered for a chance to win a ticket to Jade Novah’s Moon Pisces Tour happening on September 9th in Charlotte, NC. You can listen to some of her music here.


Your tribe should contain all the essential elements similar to a good, nutritious, well-thought-out Charcuterie Board!
You need a little sweet, a little spicy, a whole lotta savory and quite a bit of substance!
So that’s what we’re doing! We’re creating Vegan Charcuterie Boards while discussing the methods for building and maintaining friendships.
✨I know you might be skeptical about joining a group of strangers to chop it up (the veggies & the convo). My solution for that is to provide a safe space for you to share and learn.
I also promise to take care of all my Introvert friends. Truth be told, I’m an Introvert too. The activities that I have planned for you are crafted with you in mind. I promise to make it an enjoyable experience.
✨Right now, I’m preparing the guest list. If you want in, DM me and I’ll send you the next steps to secure your spot.
This event is happening in the Charlotte NC Metro area, or you can provide the location and I will travel to you! Group Sessions are welcomed and encouraged!


#socialwellness #originsofpeace


The tentative date for this event is September 10th in the Charlotte, Metro area.

Making HerStory Everday!

March is the month for celebrating women and all of our accomplishments. Either past or present, international or domestic, large scale or small, your contributions to history are important, necessary and they deserve to be celebrated.

Always remember the opinions and judgements of others belong to them. Never allow those opinions to keep you from expressing your intelligence, your creativity and your freedom to be exactly who you desire to be.

Now my question to you is, “what do you want to accomplish and what’s your plan to get there?

How will you muster up the confidence to show up for yourself and to take the necessary risks to live a life that you love?

The Law of Navigation is often used by leaders to ensure their team is well prepared for success. I like to use this law when I tackle any type of personal endeavor.

The Law of Navigation says, “A Leader is one who sees more than others see, who sees farther than others see and who sees before others do.”  In short, this means you need to approach your dreams from a 365-degree view and then zoom in on the details. Open your eyes, your heart and your mind to envision the journey and all that you will need to make it a reality.

So, what is that you want to accomplish and how do you need to prepare for it. What’s your goal and what milestones do you need to accomplish in order to get there?

Let’s talk about your vision. For the month of March, you can grab one of my quick hit strategy sessions for 50% off. You’ll have 60 minutes to run your idea by a neutral party and brainstorm different ways to make it a reality. Now is your time to make a plan and act on.

What side of women’s history do you want to be on?

Keep dreaming. believing & manifesting!

Oh yeah, if you’re near Charlotte, NC today stop by The Coco Drip from 12p-3p. The location is 1824 Statesville Blvd. Ste. 105, Charlotte, NC.

I’ll have a variety of Planters, Sunglasses, Headwraps and Earrings for your shopping pleasure!

Happy Women’s History Month!
