THE STORY

image6

As one takes passage from one stage to another on the journey of life, the confidence in one’s purpose in life and the ability to accomplish it sometimes fades away and appears bleak. Life’s challenges, disappointments, tragedies, and circumstances tend to divert us from the journey of purpose toward roads of fear, insecurity and doubt. Over ten years ago, I was set on a journey that was unimaginable, inconceivable, yet full of purpose. However, because of my life experiences I found myself on that dreadful road that restricted and constrained me and diverted me from the purposeful life. I was young, uncertain and clueless to the gifts, talents, and abilities that were innate within me because of the restricting nature of fear, insecurity, and doubt. But, along my journey, I encountered people, places, and things that began to chisel away at my walls of restriction and unfettered a woman who could declare “Free 2 Be ME”! 

As I continued on my journey of life, I realized that there were so many women, and even men, who were full of purpose, vision, ideas, designs, and innovations but were limited by the fearful, doubtful, and uncertain constraints of society, family, and even the bonds of their own minds. This experiential journey birthed an organization called “Free 2 Be ME”. Free 2 Be ME, LLC began as an organization that helped to empower women of all ages, races, and backgrounds to function in their completely designed purpose without fear, insecurity, or doubt. Later, it evolved into a business that sought to do the same through the same people, places, and things that had unlocked me into purpose.
