 My mom is my biggest and only influencer in my career choice. If she did not bring it up, I probably would have never considered applying for the fire department. I owe a lot to her.
Mom, I know I tell you, but let me take this opportunity to say a big “THANK YOU!”
My advice to others would be to align yourselves with pioneers in the industry you are striving for and learn it, even if you need to self-teach yourself. Never be too prideful to ask questions and be humble enough to accept that what you thought was right for you, sometimes isn’t. Sometimes our plans are not God’s plans. I do believe there is something out here for everyone, but it has got to be a good fit and not forced. Remember, in order to succeed in what you do, make sure you love it.
As I stated earlier, my mom is the reason I am who I am today, but I also want to give credit to a great partner and husband, as well. With working in a field that is very competitive, on occasion bias and very scrupulous, I just know that I maintain myself by answering to a higher power. Only God can judge me. He sees everything! It’s not always easy, but that itself is enough for me to maintain my integrity and morals.
“Be yourself...Everyone else is already
Look at me – I am a little girl from Brooklyn who is now a woman living in Atlanta and proudly holding the title of Battalion Chief. Yes, we can! I’m a Powerhouse, because I’m literally a Superwoman. I balance my marriage, my children, my demanding and sometimes stressful career as a Battalion Chief. I have a gym, an online program, trucking company and I also flip houses. Listen, my life is on the go, all day, every day. I balance it all. I’m successful with my endeavors, because they are all things I love to do. I make sure to mentor and give back to my community.
Again, I can do all things with the Most-High Jehovah, my loving and supportive husband and my children! I want my children to see their mom doing major things and to know there are no limits, unless you set those limitations for yourself.
Far from being done, you can expect to see my husband I continuing to excel in the fitness industry. Rl28 is our online program, along with Gee Bryant and Joseline Hernandez. We have numerous products being released to aid in helping others achieve their personal fitness goals. You can also except to see me flipping more houses and possibly franchising our gym.
The possibilities are endless!
