Why I’m Always Going to Practice Public Relations

There are a lot of functions in the world of Public Relations, but the part I love the most is using my gift of writing to tell stories. Along my PR journey, I have been blessed with the opportunity to work and walk with she-warriors; women who have lived through depression, bullying, rape, abortion, physical and sexual abuse, homelessness and poverty and being held at gun point. I have literally shed tears over their heart breaking stories and I can not fathom the thought of having to live through any one of those experiences; where many of these women have …

Don’t Get It Twisted: I’m Not Who You Think I Am

I always gain perspective when I meet and speak to women who look like they have it all together, but are suffering and struggling and facing daily challenges we don’t even know about. There are people in this world who assume that because you drive a nice car, wear nice clothes, are married with kids and work a 6-figure job that you have it all together and that you’re living the fabulous life. But in a lot of cases, nothing could be farther from the truth and I am no stranger to this phenomenon. Research even shows that greater job …

Ugly Sandra is the side of me that thinks she is actually better than some people: better educated, better employed, better family, better friends. Or the side of me that can date a guy for months and when I get bored I slowly but surely pull away. Or the side of me that is selfish or sees (physical) ugliness in others. Don’t get …

Success Is Born In Your Morning Routine

If you’re struggling to succeed and move beyond your current position in life, but find yourself stuck, perhaps there is one place you haven’t looked and that’s in your morning routine.
