“If your dreams do not scare you, they are not big enough.” ―  Ellen Johnson Sirleaf

Now, As you know, my campaign goal on Kickstarter was not reached last October, But that does not mean this is the end of the road! I read that quote recently and fell in love because it made total sense, I had this pretty big and scary idea when I first started that kickstarter and my goal was extremely high because I envisioned all of these beautiful things happening if my campaign was successful. Unfortunately I was not able to send out those baskets filled with essentials, goodies and books for Christmas but I know that everything happens for a reason. 

I'm extremely grateful for everyone's continued support since I first began this journey! I've met so many wonderful people and have been introduced to some amazing programs that I look forward to working with. But going forward my focus will be only on the essentials, which means getting that manuscript published because I know that sharing my voice will help many people for years to come. If you have a story you would like to share I'd love to hear it HERE:

Thank you again to everyone who has been beside me along this journey until then! check out my blog to stay in the loop.
