{Joyous Holidays} Shape Your Legacy

by Africa
Over Thanksgiving, my step-brother said we were immortal. We’re not kids anymore, so I wasn’t really sure where he was headed with this notion. I know there was a time I thought I would live forever and could leap tall buildings in a single bound, but that isn’t today. Honestly, that hasn’t been for quite some time. I guess the hush in the room was finally too much, and he explained that we are immortal because of our children. There was a bit of nervous laughter, and then we all told stories about how awesome our kids are! After the […]

by Africa

I’ve been talking with my friend, Sue. ¬†She is about to have a baby! ¬†You would think I was having the baby because I am soooo excited!

Sue is trying to figure out if she should be a stay at home mom or not. ¬†You would not believe the myriad of things floating through her mind as she was trying to make her decision: lifestyle, perception, expenses, full-time, soccer moms, part-time, car payments, daycare, boredom, and so much more. ¬†She was in a mental whirlwind. ¬†In the video, you’ll get the rest of the skinny on her situation, and the three steps I went through with her to make a decision.

What was your big takeaway from the interview? ¬†What do you want to know more about?¬†¬†I want to read all about it in the comments below. ¬†Just a few […]

Stay Healthy Momma! Breast Cancer Awareness & More

by Africa
It’s breast cancer awareness month, and I realized it did not know what were the pressing women’s health issues. ¬†So I did a bit of research and I have a few things to report to you! ¬†Unlike my normal research delivery style, I decided to keep this as juicy as possible. ¬†If you want to check out some of the sites I reviewed for my report, I have links below the video. My major takeaway from the research was how much we can do to keep ourselves healthy. ¬†Of course, we know inherently what to do, it is the doing […]

Peaceful Awesome Life + Business Mommas Want

by Africa
Now for something completely different . . . no video. Don’t freak out! ¬†I know it’s kinda weird. ¬†Perhaps a little scary. I thought a change of pace was in order. ¬†In just a few short days, I will celebrate my one year anniversary with my husband.¬† If you’ve read my about me, you know it was a rollercoaster ride to the altar.¬† No, not a Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Rollercoaster of Love and not on one of those awesome ones at the amusement park.¬† It was an emotional rollercoaster. At times business felt that way too – a crazy […]
