WORTH.

I'll never forget the first time I offered a private coaching intensive for one of my very first clients. Oh was it fancy and decked out! I had way too much food, albeit delicious, hors d'oeuvres, champagne, chocolate, candles, a gorgeous bouquet of fancy flowers and few special gifts for her. All the things I would personally love to experience in a private coaching intensive. Not to mention the exquisite experience of holding the space, time and attention to totally focus in on her priorities and goals in her business. Power packed and priceless!

It had always been a dream of mine, to fully support a woman in business in this way, but I wasn’t sure if anyone would be willing to invest in herself to work with me, privately, all day at a 5-star hotel. I was reading an old, tired, scarcity money story of mine, believing that I and what I had to offer was not worth paying for.

But guess what happened....

She made the investment in herself and this experience because she had been looking to grow and expand and learn the value of charging her worth and earning more money. And she knew that in order for her to charge her worth, she had to change her own money story and get on with making big decisions to get big results!

And it gets better...

DEEPER

YOUR GIFTS AND DREAMS ARE THERE! BY LATISHA SCOTT Growing up I had many ideas of what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wanted to be a veterinarian, a fashion designer, a teacher and a lawyer. I recall as a child bringing stray dogs home. In grade school, I prided myself on my coloring and drawing skills. I never colored outside the lines and I could look at certain pictures and images and recreate them. Over time I found I loved drawing dresses. I would look at magazines and draw what I saw pictured. During the summer months I would play school with my brother and sister, of course, I was the teacher. As I got older I discovered I enjoyed debating and loved settling arguments amongst my friends, I enjoyed discussing challenging topics often times my teachers would say I’d be a great lawyer.

However I never pursued any of things I dreamed about becoming, I didn’t have anyone pushing me or encouraging me to strive for the very thing I felt I would be great at. Needless to say, I lost confidence in those dreams and I settled for just graduating High School. I decided that I would be successful without college. For many years as a young woman, I did pretty well without college until the day I became a mother. The day I found out I would be a mother I realized I had to strive to give my child the life my mother wasn’t

Whether healing from a post traumatic event, grief or the unresolved hurt from a failed relationship. MORE Information: Emailthemendingstationinc@gmail.com IG: @jonsheafarris FACEBOOK: Jonshea Farris TWITTER: @jonsheafarris

How did you discover your MORE? I discovered my MORE at the end of 2015 while sitting in my bedroom. It was during this time that I asked God about His purpose for my life. In turn, He placed the name of my ministry (The Mending Station Inc.) as well as the scripture Luke 4:18 in my spirit and said to me “There are so many people that are going through life broken and scarred because of things that have happened to them, and I’m going to use you and your testimony as an avenue to heal them so they can forgive, let go and live their best life NOW!” It was at that moment I discovered my purpose and began to walk in my MORE.

Who do you consider as your female mentor near or far? First, I would have to say, my mother and grandmother. Both pastors’ wives, they were my first examples in showing me what it meant to be a woman of class, prayer, and faith. In addition to these awesome examples, I have admired Dr. LaToya K. Williams (Therapist, motivational Speaker, and entrepreneur) and Yolanda Lewis (Best-selling author, WebTV Host and producer). What would you say to inspire women around the world? You are God’s masterpiece and no matter how broken you may think you are, you can always be put back together. I know that you’ve been through things that have left you battered and scarred, but God wants you to give Him the fragments of your broken heart so He can mend you and make you whole.

I had accepted where I was in life and what I was. I had abandoned my own dreams of being a musician, entrepreneur, writer, and public speaker. My children heard me sporadically talk about wanting more but they didn’t see me pushing past my own comfort zones, or putting myself in positions to bring forth the things I so badly desired. My sons’ were looking up to celebrities and outside influence for inspiration. Why? Because those people were actually living their dreams. Those individuals did not just talk about it, but they were actually living it. As a Mother, I realized it was time for me to be about it too. I wanted my children looking to me for inspiration.

A Golden Circle Hosted Event to support the Cure in Huntsville, AL Breast cancer is the 2nd largest cancer diagnosis, followed only by lung cancer. There have been over 240,000 new breast cancer cases in 2016. On average, 3% of breast cancer cases will result in death.

Although these statistics are astounding, Nurse Smith encouraged the ladies not to fear, because “We have not been given a spirit of fear but of power, love, and a sound mind (II Timothy 1:7). The statistics are provided for awareness.

According to Nurse Smith, this increased awareness is empowering women to make informed decisions about prevention, detection, and treatment. Such decision making is leading to a decrease in breast cancer-related deaths since the late 80s.

A total of three breast cancer survivors attended the brunch; two of the ladies (Vivian Harris & Andrea Brezzell) openly shared their personal breast cancer journeys and their victorious testimonies. Both ladies echoed several of Nurse Smith’s key points and also provided the following jaw-dropping preventive measures that can be implemented daily. Robin’s inspiration for the brunch came when she was suddenly awakened early one morning as she heard the words

Michelle and I acted like giggling school girls as we waited in the hallway and watched the door for La Detra White’s arrival. We planned to greet her as soon as she entered the building. Our awesome photographer Al Dixon from Shyne Studios (shyn.com) went out to bring her in.

All of a sudden, the door creaked open, sunlight filled the room, and LaDetra White emerged. The Ambush Queen. Community servant leader. Movement initiator. Small business gladiator. She was finally here.

I wanted to capture the moment when she and Michelle connected for the first time. It was beautiful. LaDetra gave her a huge hug as she said hello. She hugged Michelle like she’d known her forever. They both started talking and laughing at once. And then, she hugged me. Michelle let out a

“Wooooooh.” I knew it was going to be a good day. The photo shoot went perfectly. LaDetra looked absolutely beautiful in a colorful dress while Michelle looked fabulous in her Women of More tee shirt. Both were walking in their purpose.

La Detra shared her heart and soul with us during the interview. She told of graduating from Howard and Harvard Universities. Of incredible success as an executive in corporate America. But corporate success couldn't prevent life’s pain and disappointments. Corporate success didn’t prevent the road blocks and curves life is known to throw. She persevered. She kept going. One foot in front of the other she pushed through. Today, she’s pushing for others.

Michelle Washington and I saw the videos showcasing the amazing work La Detra White was doing. We witnessed her changing the lives of unsuspecting small business owners in big ways. We were in awe of this woman who exemplified servant leadership. She was amazing. She was a woman of MORE, and we were determined to meet her.

Mrs. LaDetra White -Community Servant Leader, Movement Initiator, and Small Business Gladiator could be coming to a business near you so be ready! LaDetra White is a Woman of MORE.

We made contact and set up a meeting. We could hardly wait to meet this amazing woman. We’d arrange a photo shoot, have a sit-down interview, and take her out to eat. The date couldn’t come soon enough.

Faux Leather There is something about the leather look that is so chic and sexy at the same time. You can create a sexy look with the modern zipper details for a night out on the town or a midi length with a turtleneck or a blouse and take this trend right to the office.

The Over the Knee Boot This is the trend that I wore last year and will definitely be rocking in fall and winter months.
