 How long have you been an author and what inspired you to start writing? 

AL: “I’ve been an author for 3 years now. I’ve always been a writer. Writing has always been and in most cases still is my therapy. I used to suffer from anxiety, so writing my feelings became a form of therapy for me. “

Name 5 powerful tips aspiring authors should know before publishing their first book.

1. Don’t overthink. Write from your heart, not your head.
2. Don’t edit while writing. It can be challenging, but editing while writing can slow you down. Edit on the back end.
3. Someone is waiting on your story to be published, so don’t keep the people waiting.
4. Don’t expect support from everyone you know. Most times, support will come from complete strangers.
5. Set a goal to complete the entire process within 6 months.

In moments of adversity and setbacks, how do you build yourself back up?

AL: “Prayer and more prayer. I also remember my “why”, which is my 16 year old son. He’s always watching, so I can’t afford to let him see me quit.”

What do you think it takes to run a successful business?

AL: ” It definitely takes consistency and tough skin. Entrepreneurship isn’t for the weak. You must be mentally tough and a lifelong learner.

What’s the best piece of advice you received when you first started your business?

AL: “Never focus on the “wins” because placing too much focus on the wins can become a distraction. Distractions will cause you to lose.”

Who is a woman whom you look up to and admire?

AL: Jesseca Dupart -She has an awesome brand and a huge heart.
I admire all single mothers who are constantly striving for greatness. Those who don’t allow the circumstances of life to cause them to fold under pressure.”

What are your biggest goals for the 3rd quarter of 2019?

AL: “My goals for the 3rd quarter include: earning 6 figures, participating in more outreach activities, and traveling more.”

“If God brought me to it, He will surely bring me through it”

 What are some marketing/branding strategies that hasn’t let you down in your business?
