In this series I ask some of my most beautiful, creative, wealthy, entrepreneur "girl crushes" how they create a life where they are cherished, appreciated and paid top dollar for their genius in their respective areas of talent and mastery.
The #iAmHer360 series is an affirmation and celebration that the beauty, brilliance and benevolence in other women is also within us as well as having compassion for aspects of ourselves that give us the experience of various levels of pain, fear and isolation.
At the end of the day, the health and consciousness of the planet lies in the health and consciousness of the si"star" hood, how we care for ourselves and each other. I'm committed to the idea that women set the standard to be cherished, appreciated and paid top dollar for their power and genius.
Diana Ross, Aunties & Haters

Working With Ms. Ross
"Larger-than-life figure who is down-to-earth, fabulous, patient and regular.
At the end of the day, people are people, it's the way others treat them that makes them seem like their different, unapproachable and untouchable."
Wisdom For My Daughter
"I'd tell my daughter to be a thinker, be your own unique person,
don't subscribe to what everyone else is doing.
Be confident. Be educated. Be fierce. Don't be like the rest."
"People judge you by the way that you look.
Always carry yourself in a way understanding that others are always
going to be looking at you and they're going form a perception of you."
"Always dress for the job you want, not for the job you have.
Perception . . . persona is everything . . .
it's all about what you project."
"Make positive declarations over your life everyday.
Make a list of what you want to see change and improve in your life.
Everyday recite these declarations and soon it'll start manifesting itself."
Who Everyone Needs In Their Life
"Everyone needs someone in their life that's going to tell them the truth.
Align yourself with someone who's going to be authentically real with you."
"Everyone has an opinion and everybody's not going to like you and
everybody's not going to hate you. It's just how life is."
"If you're down and out, first of all you've got to believe that you are not what people say you are. You've got to believe in yourself. You have to know that. When somebody tells you something that makes you feel a certain way, "consider the source."
Girl Stop Lookin' Like An Auntie
"In this day and age there's no reason for anyone to be fat and ugly.
You can look like a celebrity, on a budget. When you look better you feel better."
"I see a whole lot of women out here lookin' like aunties.
You don't have to look like an auntie, I mean look at Diana Ross,
Diahann Carroll, Tina Turner, Sophia Loren, Sheryl Lee Ralph."
"You don't have to look like an auntie but you have to be willing to be
uncomfortable to get the change . . . most people that are mediocre,
that are average, that are not disciplined will not endure
that part that it takes, that separates you from the rest."
Thanks for reading and listening.
