My Journey

My name is Leslie White this is my first journal entry. I will tell a little bit about myself. I am a single mother raising a daughter and trying to provide her with the highest quality of life. Although this has been very hard given I currently do not have a college degree. I have recently decided to try a new venture. I was told insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expected different results. So I am going to step out of my comfort zone and try to use my natural talent to build and hopefully create something that will yield success that I have never had before. Sounds crazy when I say it because right now the only way I will obtain revenue is if I trust in God and myself. So each morning when I wake up I pray and believe that I have the ability to be successful based on my own self worth.

What I have learned that the path to success is a hard one and adversity is there to make you strong. Each day I question if I have made the right decision. I hope so my daughters future depends on it. I will post encouraging words from my heart and share stories as I go through this journey. I hope that what I present on here will be encouragement for other women who are going through hard times. I also hope that I will receive words for encouragement from other women who have traveled down the same roads. As I know I will need it. I must say I do have to really strong women in my corner my sister and my mother.Who hug me and tell me it is going to be ok and you will get through this. :)
