What's your business, and who are your customers?
I help single women attract healthy love and married ones maintain passion and communication. I serve as an intensive intervention between you and the relationship goals.
Whether male or female, our Life's Moments clients are both in search of obtaining happiness and love—their desire to have us help them in achieving their romantic goals. This is significantly due to our commitment to getting our clients their desired results. As a result, we attract women and men ready to take the journey of love with their life partners.
Tell us about yourself
Becoming a relationship coach was birth out of my fumbles in life. I made many mistakes in my relationship, which led to a divorce. However, I believe that those experiences have helped me become a better coach. I got married at the age of twenty-one, despite some red flags. I thought I could make it work, but unfortunately, my red flag became my reality when my husband was imprisoned just thirty days after we said, "I do." He was sentenced to seven years for selling drugs. This was the beginning of my emotional rollercoaster, which took me through many dark places.
Due to my emotional immaturity, I missed the signs of loneliness and the need for companionship due to my husband's absence. The abandonment of my partnership led to my infidelity, which resulted in our divorce. Through all of this, I learned some valuable lessons about relationships. So much so that after 22 years of marriage with my current husband, we have been able to navigate the trials of marriage and come out victorious. And now, I want to help other women avoid the fumbles I made in my life. I understand what it is like to be in a relationship and go through the ups and downs. I have experienced first-hand how difficult it can be. I also understand how important it is to have someone to talk to who can help you navigate these challenges.
As a coach, I am here to help you overcome these challenges. I will provide the tools and resources you need to create a happy and healthy relationship. I will also support you every step of the way. If you want guidance and support in your relationship, I encourage you to reach out to me. I have healed from my relationship, and I learned from those experiences. I want to help others avoid making the same mistakes that I did.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
There is no feeling like witnessing my clients' transformation first-hand and sharing their journey. As a business owner, I have had the privilege of helping people change their lives for the better, which is my biggest accomplishment.
Nothing is more gratifying than seeing someone reach their goals and achieve their dreams. It is an honor to be part of that process and help others realize their potential. I am grateful for the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others, and I will continue to strive to help as many people as possible.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
Being a business owner is not easy. You have to wear many hats and juggle many balls. You are responsible for the well-being of your employees and your customers. You have to make tough decisions and take risks. But one of the hardest things about being a business owner is realizing that not everyone who says they want help is ready to accept help.
Just because someone asks for your advice or assistance doesn't mean they are prepared to listen to what you have to say and take action. Sometimes people just want you to tell them what they want to hear. This can be frustrating as a business owner, especially when you see the pitfalls ahead, resulting in another heartbreak.
However, you must discern when someone is genuinely ready to listen and change and when they are just looking for reaffirmation. Otherwise, you'll waste your time and energy on people who will never change.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Have a clear purpose for your business – know what you want to achieve and why you're doing it. This will help you stay focused when things get tough.
- Be consistent in your efforts – establish a routine and stick to it. This will help you achieve your goals over time.
- Patiently put in the hard work – success doesn't come overnight, so be prepared to work hard for years before seeing any actual results.
- Celebrate your wins – no matter how small they may seem, recognize and enjoy every accomplishment along the way.
Is there anything else you'd like to share?
God created each of us with a specific purpose in mind. Unfortunately, many people go through life without ever discovering what that purpose is. As a result, they never truly learn to love themselves. However, I believe that self-love is the key to living a fulfilling life. Once we discover our God-given purpose, we can begin to see ourselves in a new light. We realize that we are valuable and worthy of love. This newfound self-love then gives us the courage to pursue our dreams and live out our God-given destiny.
When we live according to God's plan for our lives, we can't help but feel fulfilled. After all, it is only when we do what we were created to do that we can feel at peace and truly content. So if you're searching for a fulfilling life, look no further than God's plan for your life. Start by discovering self-love and let it lead you to your destiny.
