For so long I have felt that I had something to offer the world but I couldn't put my finger on it. Of course, I had many ideas, but nothing just felt completely right. I always had slight doubts. Well....I'm proud to inform you that I've found it. I've found my niche. I am a motivator. In other words, I love to encourage people. More specifically, I love to encourage people to be the best that they can be and define their purpose.

I didn't really like the cards I was dealt in life. I actually would have folded if I had a choice. I always felt like I was out of place. Almost like I was born in the wrong area. I felt like I was more upper or middle class, but I was in poverty. I was always trying to find strategies to get out of the hole I was born in...

Thank God that I made it out! My perspective has changed. I've learned a lot during my struggles. So, now I'm ready to help others. I want to let people know that you can win the battle in your mind. You can become who you want to be. One of the keys to success is building your confidence and self esteem. The key is believing that you can become better. You must believe in your dream, or no one else will. The hard part is that you must believe in it when it seems as if no one else does.

I started the website, More In You, because I want to encourage you to believe that there's more inside of each and every one of us. I want to help motivate you to reach your dream by building a community of people who encourage each other.

If you need some motivation...become a member of the site. If you need encouragement...become a member. If you just want to become a better you...become a member. Take a look at what others are doing to encourage themselves. You can have discussions with other people dealing with similar issues. You can watch motivational videos. You can post your favorite motivational quotes. I look forward to seeing you @!

Just believe...there's more in you.

Success Stories

How many of you are the believe it when you see it types? Great, I am too. Because of this I know that success stories encourage and motivate people. If you are like me, you want to see someone else doing what you would like to do. For me, seeing it is believing it. If she can do it, I can too. If he can do it, I know I can.

Let me tell you some of the things that I have done to let you know what I'm talking about.

Success Story
 I got pregnant at 15, but I still graduated from high school on time. In fact, I went to junior college while in high school. I also got accepted and graduated from college on time. (four years) On top of that, I got pregnant again my senior year of undergraduate school, and I still graduated on time. Now...I'm three classes away from finishing my masters degree. Oh, I didn't mention the third child that I got pregnant with in graduate school. The moral of the story is that having children cannot stop you from finishing school. If you have the drive and determination, you can do it. I did and I know that you can too.

What others perceived as the beginning of failure was actually the beginning of my success story. When I got pregnant at 15 people said I would rely on the system the rest of my life. They said my life was ruined. I guess they were wrong. I could say so much more about other areas of my life, but I will have to save some of it for my book. What did they say about you?

What's your success story? I'm organizing my first book, Just Believe: There's More in You. I would love to share your success story if you will let me. If you would rather e-mail me your success story, my e-mail address is
