The favorite part of my job as an editor is interacting with the women we serve!

essence-dating-boot-campFor the June issue with the sexy brothers of Empire on the cover, I had a blast designing our dating boot camp alongside Steve Harvey.


We selected three teachers for an incredible adventure. After morning coaching sessions, they received makeovers with the Perfect Hair International team and then had an evening of mingling with eligible bachelors.

What made the experience even sweeter was that Steve Harvey had been someone I admired for his business, hustle and heart!

And in December I put his pic on my vision board to help me stay motivated, expand my business and hopefully work together one day. The next month I was invited to a meeting with his team at the job – a few hours before it took place. Dressing up even when you dont know where you are going that day has always paid off for me. Two months later he and I were in a room talking. God is good. Write the vision, Make it plain!
