What keeps you going when things get tough in your business?
I am a woman of God with strong faith. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. When things get tough in my business I pray to God. I ask God for wisdom, understanding, discernment, knowledge, and clear vision. My why keeps me going when things get tough. People lose their way when they lose their why. A woman who walks in purpose doesn't have to chase people or opportunities. Her light causes people and opportunities to pursue her. Never settle for less than God's best for your life! There is nothing I am more passionate about than empowering the next generation.
