    The Sis Series: Do Your Thing, Sis

    You know that one friend who won’t let you fall off on her watch?

    She encourages you to tighten up.

    She reminds you to live as your higher self.

    She challenges your fears.

    She refuses to entertain your doubt.

    She rides for your purpose.

    She’s not afraid to check you.

    She sees you in the future.

    That friend is always there with a peptalk on the tip of her tongue.

    She only lets you cry and vent for a second because she knows every second counts when you’re in the fight for your life.

    Even though she’s tough on you sometimes, at the core of everything she says and does is this simple message:

    Do. Your. Thing. Sis.

    You know that friend.

    May we all know her and love her because she’s the one holding every dope woman down.

    If you haven’t been blessed enough to have that friend in your life, no worries.

    I got you.

    I created The Sis Series you.

    Gone are the days of competing with other women.

    No more comparison.

    No more shaming.

    No more criticism.

    No more shade.

    I have blessed to live my life free of “female issues.” I don’t brag about getting along with men better than women.

    At my lowest points in life, another woman came to pull me up.

    When I experienced my successes, another woman was shouting me out to all of her friends.

    There is nothing more powerful than a group of women joining together to secure the success of one another

    A tribe of powerful women is sexy.

    It’s necessary.

    It’s how we roll.

    Join the Do Your Thing Sis movement.

    Pick up a reminder for you and your sisters.

    Caught A Few Lessons. I Plan To Bag A Few More.

    I take my birthday month very seriously. Yes. Birthday month-not just my actual birth day.

    It took me a couple of weeks to reflect on my year, but I caught a few lessons:


    Change is not inevitable. Some things stay the same for far too long.


    You know you’re strong when you can make peace with your weaknesses.


    The people who count on you won’t mind if you count on them every now and then.

    ...Additionally, the number of people who count on you needs to be edited, often.


    Losing weight really does happen in the kitchen.


    Stick to it for as long as it takes. And sometimes it takes long.


    You don’t stop being worthy because you mess up.


    If you want better, you gotta make room for it.


    Take your losses and the wisdom that come along with you. Wise is dope.


    Nothing is given. If you want it you gotta take it.


    Apologies are overrated. I got a couple that didn’t change a thing.


    Finding things that move you is so important.


    God's Plan... I can't do this on my own.


    This next year of my life already has me shook. I'll be sure to bag more lessons to share.


    Storytelling And How I Was Almost Special Agent Nakeia. What's Your Story?

    True story:

    I was supposed to be an FBI agent. Yup. I was supposed to be special agent Nakeia, working in some department that studied criminal behavior and profiled some of the most dangerous people in the world.

    I went on to become a social worker, makeup artist, songwriter, speaker, inspirational writer, mentor, consultant, copywriter, and copywriter instead. That’s a lot. I know.

    I did revisit my plan to work in the criminal justice field. But, instead of trying to catch criminals, I worked to rehabilitate them as a Counselor in a community corrections facility.

    That’s what’s great about life. You can decide who you want to be, at any time, and go do that.

    You can decide, change your mind, and decide again.

    It seems every few chapters of my life are different. I like it that way. Keeps me poppin’. You feel me?!

    What’s your story? Who have you become? How have you decided to stay poppin’?
