Sooo, what now???

I haven’t written a blog in over a month and to be quite honest, I haven’t felt inspired to. Partly because I was busy promoting my book and partly because I was just not all that interested in sharing. It’s been a wild 6 weeks since…

PURPOSEFUL AF

Two days prior, I’d presented at The Daytime Emmys. Miss Vivica A. Fox and I handed the award for Outstanding Morning Program to the team from Good Morning America. It was one of the coolest experiences and proudest moments…
