What is your current labor of love? Are you currently working on a new project or assignment that you would like to share with our membership?
My labor of love is my non-profit, WOW Legacy Group and our Fall into Fabulous empowerment program. Our mission is to empower, educate, inspire and transform the lives of women facing life adversity. Our 6 month empowerment program has a direct focus on health & wellness, financial improvement, continuing education, professional development, community service and personal development. Once the women complete the 6 month program it culminates with our annual Fall into Fabulous luncheon. (See link) 2017 Fall into Fabulous: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kjaWlBZkFu4
This is where we highlight the transformative accomplishments of the women over the past 6 months. We also create our Pop up boutique for the women to enjoy and to shop till they drop. We collect very gently worn or new clothing, shoes, handbags, jewelry and/or accessories to give a women a complete look from head to toe, professional and casual clothing items.
In your industry arena and/or area of expertise, what are you seeing on the horizon as a not to be missed or overlooked trend, topic, challenge or opportunity?
In my area of focus, the issue of women empowerment cannot be missed, overlooked or minimized. Women have fewer opportunities for economic participation than men, less access to basic and higher education, greater health and safety risks, and less political representation.
Fall into Fabulous is giving women opportunities to reach their full potential. Empowered women and girls contribute to the health and productivity of their families, communities, and countries, creating a ripple effect that benefits everyone.
Women’s empowerment is a critical aspect of achieving gender equality. It includes increasing a woman’s sense of self-worth, her decision-making power, her access to opportunities and resources, her power and control over her own life inside and outside the home, and her ability to effect change.
You have been an inspiration to us at the Florida Spa Association…who or what is your inspiration? Would you share a personal mantra or favorite pearl of wisdom with our members?
My inspiration all of the amazing women who have been living examples of the word resilient. They have shaped my determination and drive to get back up when life unexpectedly knocks you down. My personal mantra is: “Failure is NOT an option. When life falls apart, Fall into Fabulous”!
