I haven’t posted in quite some time, so I wanted to take a moment to catch up with my blog site followers! What have I been doing, you ask????
(1) Well, if you’ve been following my blog, you know that I had a baby in July of 2012, which means I now have a 17 month old toddler!!! Those of you who are parents know how demanding this age group can be, however I can honestly say my little girl has been the best challenge I’ve ever had to face, as she’s taught me so much about what really matters in life. It’s amazing how we adults complicate things and make life more burdensome than it was meant to be. The keys to happiness as taught by my princess: naps (proper rest), cartoons (laughter), snacks (proper nutrition), play time (working out), learning and improving new skills (work/career), and lots of hugs and kisses (love). Everything you do each day should fill your life with joy. Anything contrary should be eliminated immediately. This isn’t to say you won’t have hurdles or unhappy moments (temper tantrums), however it is to say that even in your darkest moments, you remember the light that exists within.
(2) In February 2013, I received my LLC status from the state. In March 2013, I completed my training as a Certified Professional Life Coach. In April 2013, I officially launched my life coaching practice, Infinite Fortitude LLC. Since then, I have been promoting my business and establishing my brand. I’ve met some wonderful people along the way and I’m excited for all that is in store as I continue to build. Take a moment to visit my website and if you or someone you know is looking for personal and/or professional development, as I’d love to partner with you and become your Life Coach! www.infinitefortitude.com
(3) In June 2013 I became an independent partner of Traci Lynn Fashion Jewelry. Yes, I have 2 businesses. 🙂 Years ago, I had a successful jewelry business and opted to begin again because I loved the connection I made with the women with whom I crossed paths. And I looove jewelry! I’m also a firm believer that we should never only have one stream of income. If you or someone you know is looking for some fabulous jewelry to add to your collection, you’re interested in earning free jewelry, or you’ve always wanted to own your own business, visit my website to learn more! www.tracilynnjewelry.net/shanikaw
(4) I became a blogger for Pull Magazine, a publication for emerging leaders. So yes, I have been writing (just not as often for this blog)! To peruse my pieces in addition to the writing of others, visit the website! www.pullmag.com
As you can probably tell, my life is pretty much baby and business! 🙂
While I’m not here as often as I would like, I appreciate you for taking the time to follow this blog and I would love to remain connected to each and every one of you! As such, please feel free to “like” my page on Facebook, as I offer daily empowerment, motivation, and inspiration there. www.facebook.com/infinitelyshanika
Also, I was given the AMAZING opportunity to interview with Vanessa Bell Calloway, a very talented actress who’s work I’ve always enjoyed. She has a blog talk radio show entitled, “That’s so Very Vanessa” and the show on which I am a guest will air this Sunday, December 29th at 6pm EST. Take a moment to listen, as we will be discussing tips on how to stick to those New Year’s resolutions! http://www.blogtalkradio.com/vanessabellcalloway
So, those are the things that have been consuming my time. What have you been up to?
