Mona Scott Young & Yandy Smith Give Back!

I had the pleasure of attending Everything Girls Love Workshop. Everything Girls love is founded and owned by Love and Hip Hop's Yandy Smith Harris who is also co-producer of the LHH Franchise with Mona Scott Young.
This weekend was empowering, encouraging and enlightening. I met a ton of amazing women both established and upcoming. Friday was an introduction to most of the panelist. This workshop was Passion + Purpose= Profits the panelist were Tiara Williams, Monique Rodriguez owner of Mielle Organics, Tamika Mallory, Lucinda Cross, Tashera Simmons, Bershan Shaw and Precious Avorkliyah-Evans. 
I noticed that most of the panelist hardships similar to my own. Most of these successful, determined, women came from homes that were destroyed by drug use. I never tell my story because my family is so "private" but, my story is my story and you can't sugar coat the ugly truth.

The life stories from most of the day 2 panelist were similar or just as crazy. I used to feel like my life negatives were holding me back and that I would be further if my parents were supportive, or had not been on drugs.  Recently, I've been feeling that I am who I am because of it. I've persevered because of it. I've had an entrepreneurial way of thinking since the age of 7, from Lemonade Stands to newspaper routes and babysitting. I can and will become who God created me to be and build a multimillion dollar ideas will come to fruition just as I have built my brand from the ground up. What I took from this weekend is these people have built million dollar companies and growing with the same background as I or just as bad, 'if they did it' I can do it and I will.
