FROM THE HEART OF THE EDITOR: WHAT MATTERS MOST So it’s clear that we have now entered the summer season. With this heated emergence, I am also reminded that we have arrived to the middle of the year. It automatically sends me into reflective mode. As a woman, I begin to assess my joy factor, my peace of mind, relationships and how much leisure time I’ve granted myself. As a business woman, I begin to assess the growth of my company, her stability, finances, her network and what lies ahead of us for the remainder of the year. There is so much that we multi-manage on a daily basis. Most of the time we are on auto-pilot going through the routines of the day because we simply know that things have to be done. We often dismiss breaks, social enjoyment, a chance to laugh at something and spending time with people that matter. The grind of life truly steals the show and takes centerstage with no intention of giving up it’s spot. Can any of you identify? It’s what I call the Stress of the Blessing. Because we are plowing the fields we rarely view our blessings as blessings. Why is that? I believe it is because blessings often feel like stress. Blessings come with much responsibility. Those on the outside peering in and observing what you do think that it is all glamor and glory. Of course, you know differently. We are on a journey of figuring out how to achieve our success, maintain a healthy life, keep our stress levels at bay and hit that next apex. In 2017, I have encountered more individuals who are silently battling these issues now more than ever; stress, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorders and more. It became urgent that I committed an issue to Stress Management within Success. It is true that to whom much is given much is required, but it is also true that if we don’t take care of self first the requirements will suffer and we will lose in the long run. Through this issue I want each of you quintessential women to reassess where you are in your lives. Rate the level of your wellness physically, mentally, socially and spiritually. Are your relationships suffering because you’re not able to give time to cultivate them? Are you treating your body with love by feeding it the right foods and providing it with sufficient exercise? Are you getting enough sleep? I could go on and on but I think you get the point. This magazine issue is dedicated to each of you who could use a reminder to remember what matters most. What matters most is you. Success is a never-ending journey; there are levels and dimensions that we will always strive for. While ambition is encouraged I want you to take the time to make sure you are thinking well, eating well and living well. Welcome to Issue 2. Fitastically Yours, LaShanna Leonard Editor-in-Chief

WOMAN TO WATCH: MPUMI NOBIVA Personal Growth, which premiered in March 2017. I also directly mentor college students internationally through a Sunday Mentorship Program that has a growing registry of young professional millennials from South Africa, the U.S., Canada, and Italy. On this platform, I host free weekly international online sessions on Growth Mindset in Academia, Public Speaking, Business Acumen, Personal Branding & sharing personal stories. All to model & foster a culture of purposedriven brands among the millennial generation! I am mentored by Ms. Winfrey, a first class graduate No one tells my story like I’m able to, so here goes . I am a 24-year-old motivational speaker, born in Zonkizizwe to a young 17-year-old mother. I was raised in abject poverty, mainly by my grandmother (and grandfather) who nurtured me after I was orphaned at the age of nine when my mother died of AIDS in 2002 and I still don't know who my father is. Today I travel globally to share my story. I'm a first class graduate of the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy in South Africa. I'm currently completing a masters degree in Strategic Communications (PR) on a Graduate Presidential Scholarship at High Point University. As an AIDS orphan of 15 years, I started a campaign in 2015 called #ShareYourStory - Inspire Courage, where I traveled out of pocket to different schools sharing stories of hope and encouragement. This advocacy was inspired by the alarming prevalence and high statistic of HIV/AIDS in South Africa. Today, I'm working on multiple projects centered around modeling leadership behavior and motivating millennials to live their truest dreams. I am host & producer of a YouTube series, Strategic

of her Leadership Academy in South Africa. I've had the privilege of introducing her to the United States of Women Summit convened by the White House. I've also recently reached a milestone in becoming the first OWLAG student to join the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy Board of Directors. Due to my increasingly extensive travels, I do most of my work through mentorship while also traveling and sharing my story. In the past 3-4 years, I've also partnered with numerous nonprofits and corporations in raising funds for causes such as education, aboriginal health care programs & aid, girl-child safety etc. This year I spoke on my biggest platform in Chicago at the Allstate Arena (18,000 people) & recently I spoke in Los Angeles at the iconic Forum Arena in April (16,000) in addition to millions of ABC home viewers. This July - August I will speak in Texas, the United Kingdom, Kenya, and Nigeria. I am thankful and hopeful and I believe that the best is still yet to come. I’m thankful for this opportunity.


GLOBAL WELLNESS BY THIERRY MALLERET, ECONOMIST

No matter what happens with China’s economic growth and the inevitable financial crisis (whose timing is unknown), the Chinese will become increasingly health/wellness conscious. As one significant example, the sales of goods associated with health-related properties such as "organic," "non-genetically modified" and "low-fat" are rapidly growing. Last year, the sale of organic food reached 30 billion yuan (USD $4.4 billion) with the production of organic vegetables, rice, tea and fruit growing at an astonishing rate of 30+ per cent per year (in volume terms). As for personal care, Chinese consumers increasingly prefer natural products. Giants like Procter & Gamble and Unilever maintain huge market shares, but their sales are declining as healthier products such as handmade soap using natural materials and silicon-free shampoo grow in popularity.


Koereyelle DuBose CEO of The Single Wives Club What kind of business do you operate? Share with us the mission and your audience. My mission and purpose is to empower and educate women on ways to live a life that they love. I do this through a variety of empowerment projects: Confessions of a WERKaholic Podcast, WERKPraySlay Weekend, Busy at the Beach and of course my books. This year, I launched my mentoring program ( the Inner Circle) which helps women get their mind right and their money up so they can level up. Are you a full-time Entrepreneur/Business Owner? Yes!

Please introduce yourself to our global audience. Tell us your name, where you live and a few fun facts about yourself. Hello hello all the way from the A! I’m Koereyelle and I’m from the Windy City of Chicago but Atlanta has been my home for 10 years! A few fun facts: I’m the baby of my family and I’m told that I act like it, I’m a true indecisive Libra and I’d like to think of myself as a natural born leader.

What are the most enjoyable things about what you do? I love being able to share my lessons learned with the ladies who need it the most. It is so fulfilling to receive feedback on how my books or classes or events have impacted women from all over the world. The best part is being appreciated for being ME. What are some of the most stressful things that you deal with? (3 maximum) Dealing with my own expectations can be pretty stressful. I hold myself to a high standard so it can be overwhelming when things aren't going as planned.


Can you recall one of the most exciting experiences of your career? Share it with us. My full page article in Essence Magazine was very exciting! Even though I’ve done lots of interviews, this one was the most exciting because I literally manifested it. I wrote it on a goal card and brought it to life. Can you recall one of the most stressful and challenging times of your career? Share it with us. Absolutely, it was during the very beginning when I was focusing on investing in my business before the profits started rolling in. Being broke is extremely stressful. Do you identify with being stressed, battling depression or any other emotional challenge? No. I don’t identify myself with any negative labels. We are all stressed and it’s never going to stop, our only hope is to learn to cope better today than we did yesterday. One a scale of 1-10 where do you rate your overall stress factor? (Personal and Professional Life) 7 How do you handle your stress, depression etc?

Self-Care is everything! I get massages every other week, acupuncture once a month and I take time out for a “solo date” at least once a week. Meditation is also very helpful. How do you feel about conventional medications when it comes to combating mental and emotional issues? I’m not a fan of prescription drugs at all. Finding a doctor that practices Eastern and Western medicine was one of the best things I ever did. She recommends teas, herbs, meditation and even music therapy before writing a prescription. If you could share any message with our readers about living life as balanced as possible, what would you say to them? Self-care is a necessity, not a luxury and real wealth is being well. It makes no sense to spend your life slaving away in your business if you won’t be healthy (or happy) enough to enjoy it anyway. What is next for you? Up next is Busy at the Beach this August, I’m taking over 60 ladies to Cabo for some fun in the sun and then WERKPraySlay is this November! Beyond that, only God knows but I’m EXCITED to find out.

If you could share any message with our readers about living life as balanced as possible, what would you say to them? We cannot avoid having stressed periods in life or on our job, but it is always important to find a balance in what we are doing.
