The 10,000-hour rule. Ever heard of it?

It’s the idea that the secret to mastery & success – in any field – is to practice your craft for 10,000 hour. That’s a long time. A massive commitment. The challenge of a lifetime.

Over the past 20 years, I’ve racked up over 100,000 hours of mentoring, coaching, and philanthropic service.

:I’ve launched international campaigns to raise awareness (and cash) for heart disease research.

:I’ve negotiated $2 million sponsorship deals with heads of foreign nations.

:I co-founded the first Diabetes Awareness Day in The Gambia, West Africa.

:I created the nation’s first scholarship pageant for African American women.

:I’ve secured over $300,000 in financial aid for young black scholars, artists & emerging leaders.

:I’ve received leadership & empowerment awards from The Lifetime Network, Jones New York, and was named a Goodwill Ambassador by the last living relative of Kunta Kinte.

:I’ve guided over 1,000 young women into high-powered & thrilling careers in entertainment, media, medicine, education, civic activism & beyond.

They don’t call me The Queen of Service for nothing. And ladies – I’m just getting started.

This is 2017.
For the first time in history, we’ve got an African American First Lady, a black woman on the top of FORBES Richest Women in Entertainment list, and sisters in positions of prestige & power at organizations like XEROX, Care USA, Microsoft, The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and The World Bank.

With more media attention & opportunity than ever before, it’s time to redefine what it means to be a courageous, compassionate & CONFIDENT black woman, today. We’ve got obstacles to overcome, stereotypes to smash, and trauma to release – no question about it.

It won’t be easy. But it will be worth it. So my question for YOU is:

How BIG do you want to live?

Let’s get you over the 10,000-Hour mastery mark – doing the work you were born to do.
