When I started JustMyMemphis, I wanted to give others something I thought I did not have. What was that? A voice to be heard, a voice to share what I was really going through, a voice to ask for the help I didn’t know I needed. I knew what pain looked like, because I had seen it and felt it so many times within myself. I also had a chance to see small business people start and fail. People that were trying to build something great, but just not having the knowledge or tools needed to execute with success.
Then there was the moment a surgeon said to get my mother’s affairs in order because she only had three months to live. How was I going to tell her she had only three months to live? But I learned a lesson from all of these experiences, life is about choices. No matter the situation you are faced with, you have a choice as to how you will deal with it.
So I want to invite you to share your story. Take the worst things that life as thrown at you and turn it into something amazing. Share how you overcame divorce, the loss of a loved one, prison, a battle with health issues, or how you overcame financial hardships. Your Words have Power for You and Others!
