I’m currently teaching Confidence K.I.C.K. as a LifeTeam at my local church and I’m loving every minute of it! I’ve taught this class for college freshman and even online but this class is different. This class is more intimate. Because of the small setting, I am able to gain more engagement and through this, I can see first hand when someone has an aha moment, revelation or becomes excited from the learnings.
I make my courses very interactive, which is a way to push them out of their comfort zones. One of the great things from this type of teaching is seeing the reactions and receiving the feedback in the end of how comfortable they’ve become because of this form of teaching.
Confidence, is the best make-up one could wear and it’s something that we ALL possess. Most just have not tapped into it. 🙂
Once you realize you’ve possessed this all along and then decide to tap into it is always a great outcome. Try it out and see!
If you need some assistance along the way, reach out to me and receive a FREE consultation where I will share how I can help you tap into this type of confidence in order to go after the dreams God has for you!
Say it with your action!
One of the most powerful and motivational acts one can do is be a person who lives what they speak. A person who shows love through action, show trust through action, belief through action and being obedient to the direction and order God has for them through action.
You never know who you are inspiring through what you DO, not just what you say you are doing or what you will do. In the words of Nike, “just do it!”
First day of a new month! What are your plans for February??

Modest is the new sexy!
The bare-it-all is truly over-rated and although there is greatness in the woman who is comfortable in her own skin, there is equal greatness in those that can show sexiness without the need to bare it all.
Did you know there was such a thing? Let me share how to do that.
Sexy is shown though:
3. The Hair – How you wear your hair can be sexy as well and it will not require you to be barely there either.
4. Create it with Color – All black dress with a pop of red, wearing all red or maybe even wearing the royal color purple can showcase sexiness.
5. Own YOUR style. when you confidently wear whatever your choose, sexiness can equate to it simply because you believe you are. Below are some modest fashionistas (1. Anam Shahid 2. Nadira Abdul Quddus) that have great style and can also be considered sexy.
What are some ways you showcase sexiness without baring it all?
I’m a big advocate of personal development which = self investment. One of the ways I invest in myself is listening to other inspiring and kick ass boss babes that have started from the bottom now they here! Women who struggled and still made it inspire me to keep pushing.
Below are my Top 5 Female Podcasts that will positively affect your life, business and even relationships! Be sure to share who you listen to that keeps you motivated.
Myliek is the founder of CurlBOX and has transparently shared her story. She speaks openly on how she started before she was completely ready without even having enough packaging… literally sending product in basic brown boxes. She speaks on her fall with a DUI while starting her company and how she rose to being one of the best in the game right now! Her authenticity is what I love about her! One of my favorite podcasts of hers is one that was posted just recently entitled “Maintaining Momentum”. Give it a listen and be sure to follow her work.
Courtney’s gift is to give to other female entrepreneurs. She focus on helping business owners like myself, unlock the full potential to think & grow into our purpose. She shares openly about the unsuccessful launch of her business back in 2009 and talks candidly about the steps she took to succeed and how you can do the same thing. Click her pic below to follow her podcast. One of my favorites is entitled “Do You Boo: Defining Your Own Success vs. Learning from the Best”
Another fabulous and open book entrepreneur! Sophia is the founder of Nasty Gal but literally came from rags to riches by personal poor choices. She dropped out of school and found herself dumpster diving, hitchhiking and stealing prior to finding her purpose and creating Nasty Gal. She recently launched #GirlBoss Podcast late 2015 and I’m already loving her interviews and candid conversations.
This inspiring lady is all about encouraging you to live with “value-based intention.” Her podcast has over 2 million downloads and is true boss babe status! “The Lively Show is designed to uplift, inspire, and help you add a little extra intention to your everyday.” From topics of wellness to career and business, Jess Lively covers it all. One of my favorite interviews is with Nicole Balch that gives business advice. Be sure to check out more by clicking her photo below.
Koereyelle “Confessions of a Werkaholic” podcast series interviews various boss babes around the US sharing their learnings. Not only is this a great addition to my podcast listening pleasures, her “Mindset Mondays” are equally informative. So this one is not really a podcast but must not go unmentioned. Koereyelle offers weekly “Mindset Mondays” conference calls and shares her personal advice, learnings and motivation for savvy ladies everywhere. Sign up to get a part of the action here! The one I received this past Monday entitled “Pray then Prepare” was phenomenal. Don’t miss out on her great advice.

So we are on Day 4 of #LiveIntentionally and since the focus of January is Wellness, I’ve broken each week down for digestible chunks that set you up for success in completing!
This week is all about Mental Health and today we are talking about how igniting your sense of smell increases positive mental health. Did you know there are over 200 versus in the bible that speak on the use of oils and fragrant incense? And I say… if it’s healing and greatness in the bible… than it’s something of a necessity for you and I!
Did you know smelling flowers before going to sleep can lead to more positive dreams? How fascinating right?! It’s been stated that “research is increasingly showing, smells can impact on almost everything, from dreams and emotions, driving, stress and gambling, to pain, concentration, memory and romance.”
Essential Oils are a must have for me! From needing relaxation to a morning pick me up, essential oils do the trick. Below is a list of some essential oils and benefits for your mental health.
“Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb that yields seed, and the fruit tree that yields fruit according to its kind, whose seed is in itself, on the earth”; and it was so. And the earth brought forth grass, the herb that yields seed according to its kind, and the tree that yields fruit, whose seed is in itself according to its kind. Genesis 1:11-12
|Lavender||relaxing, circulation, meditative.|
|Angelica||anorexia, relieving hopelessness.|
|Basil||fatigue, general nerve tonic, anti-depressant, soporific, confusion, melancholy, mental clarity and concentration, reduces anxiety. (careful use prevents over-stimulation).|
|Bay||anti-hysteric, sedative, hypotensive|
|Bergamot||sedative for anxiety and antidepressant, stimulates appetite.|
|Chamomile(Roman)||calming, hyperactivity, good for use with children.|
|Clary Sage||sedative and nervine for insomnia, paranoia, panic, and hysteria.|
|Everlasting||grounding increases dream activity.|
|Juniper||apathy, paranoia, confusion, anxiety, nervous trembling and paralysis, diuretic|
To be effective, it’s best to use these essential oils in it’s purest forms. Don’t settle for the synthetic or adulterated oils as they may be more cost friendly but will not have the same effects. If you suffer with nervous tension or anxiety attacking your mental health, try mixing these oils for a home remedy:
This blend will relax the nervous system, ease tension, and bring emotional equilibrium.
· 10 drops Lavender
· 10 drops Petitgrain
· 4 drops Roman Chamomile
This blend will profoundly relax the individual, induce sleep, and bring calm to an active mind that is preventing the correct emotional balance and total relaxation.
· 10 drops Lavender
· 10 drops Basil
· 3 drops Neroli
Get out there and ignite your sense of smell. Whether it’s with stopping to literally smell some flowers to stop anxiety, sniff some citrus to relax as it increases levels of the stress-related hormone norepinephrine, or take a wiff of coffee for a morning or mid-day pick me up (without the need to consume), smells can increase positive mental health and even heal the sick so take advantage.
Remember what the word says “Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord.” James 5:14(NKJV)
Share what scents awaken you, relax you, or just make you feel so damn happy in the comments below.
Day 3 of How to #LiveIntentionally for the year of 2k16!
As January focus is all about Wellness and the first week is about Mental Health. As stated before, breaking it down in bit size chunks allows us to be successful in learning to #LiveIntentionally
Did you know “foods that sustain – rather than spike – blood sugar levels keep your energy and vitality going throughout the day. Avoid “empty” calories from foods that contain refined sugars (like soda or desserts) and choose snacks with lean proteins and healthy fats (like avocado, nuts, or fish). ”
When we are focussing on mental health, kicking the sugar and increasing sustainability foods like lean proteins, grains, fruits and leafy greens will boost brain power, reduce anxiety, assist with insomnia and even reduce depression.
If you are an on the go fashionista, workaholic, or even travel for work, there are many great options to eat healthy on the go. Check out greatist for more tips on how to incorporate eating well in a busy life.
Remember, if you start your day off with healthy eating, it will be easier to sustain throughout the day. And if you plan out your meals for the week, it would be even easier to grab and go!
The above recipe is found on guuky and it’s great!
This recipe is super easy and packed with tasty ingredients vital for healthy looking skin. Make them the night before and have a quick, healthy breakfast on go.
OVERNIGHT BREAKFAST – Oatmeal Creations
* 1 container (6 oz) greek yogurt, any flavor
* 1/4 cup uncooked old-fashioned or quick-cooking oats
* 1/4 cup fruit (see ideas below)
Instructions: In container with tight-fitting cover, mix yogurt and uncooked oats. Stir in desired fruit. Cover; refrigerate at least 8 hours but no longer than 3 days before eating.
Fruit suggestions (1/4 cup):
raspberries, mandarin orange segments, pineapple pieces, diced kiwifruit, blueberries, sliced grapes.
But remember this… “So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” 1 Cor. 10:31 as well as
“Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own” 1 Cor. 6.19
Focusing on #Wellness for the month of January as a way for us to live intentional!
As stated in previous post, this week is all about Mental Health! Yesterday we focused on the importance of breathing… today is about meditation. And before you say, “ain’t no body got time for that” I will rebut saying “YES YOU DO!”
Contrary to popular believe, you can have an effective meditation moment in as little as 60 seconds… that’s only 1 minute of your time!
The above video showcase how you can meditate in literally a minute. Meditation is a great tool to use throughout your entire day. While at work, before starting your day or even when you are ready to go to sleep are all great times to take a moment to mediate.
As a personal testimony, mediation has helped me with creativity, to release stress and to be able to overcome some of my biggest obstacles. if it helped a workaholic, control freak like me, I know you can benefit from it as well!
Be sure to try it out today and share your experience below
Happy January 4th everyone!!
As stated in the previous post, each month for 2016 will have a specific focus in order to #LiveIntentionally ! This month is all about wellness.
For January week 1 – It’s all about Mental Wellness
Mental Wellness is defined as “a state of well-being in which the individual realizes his or her own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to his or her community.”
With this definition, I will share tips each day this week that will help reduce the stresses of life and will help you work productively.
Today is all about breathing
Breathing is one of the quickest easiest ways to relax, release stress and gain clarity to become more productive.
“Slow, deep breaths can help lower blood pressure and heart rate . For the fancy noses out there, try pranayama breathing, a yogic method that involves breathing through one nostril at a time to relieve anxiety. The technique’s supposed to work the same way as acupuncture, balancing the mind and body (and possibly eliminating the need for a tissue).”
Try this today and share your experience. Remember, every tip ties back to Living Intentionally. When we take the time to just breathe, we give ourselves to enjoy more things in the moment. We open ourselves up to give our best selves and because of this, we will do things with intent that will cause our lives to blossom!
Breathing opens yourself to God’s blessings.
Job 33:4“The Spirit of God has made me, And the breath of the Almighty gives me life.”
Recognize the breath God has given you and live intently, on purpose and on fire for what HE has for your life!
Many Blessings to you and yours for the year of 2016 and beyond!!
It’s a New Year and another opportunity for you to live out your purpose! Being transparent, 2015 definitely had many more valleys than mountains but To God be the glory as it ALL works for the good of HIM!
This year, I have decided to live with intention and I want you to join me on this journey.
Each month I will focus on one specific area to live with intention. I believe if we take the opportunity to enjoy the moments, find purpose in it all and truly live with intention, we will find accomplish many more goals and truly live our best lives!
This is the opportunity to build a circle of accountability while being encouraged along the way with great tips from none other than Coach K!
Here are the focus for each month:
JANUARY – Wellness
FEBRUARY – Confidence
MARCH – Organization
APRIL – Clarity
MAY – Growth
JUNE – Self
JULY – Family
AUGUST – Learning
SEPTEMBER – Reflection
OCTOBER – Breathe
NOVEMBER – Giving
DECEMBER – Him
Take a minute or five or thirty and think about those things in 2015 you didn’t get the opportunity to finish or those things you wish you could do differently. Then, recognize since you are still living, you have the opportunity to turn them into real goals for 2016. Write them down, give a rough time frame, and begin to take action steps all while surrendering to Jesus, letting Him lead you. Let’s prayerfully take action and live intentionally. We can do this together with laser focus and I’m here to help encourage along the way with a specific focus each month.
So to kick it off… please be sure to join me starting January 4th to get tips and encouragement from me for Wellness! Let’s live with intention each and every step of 2016!
Be on the look out! Much more to come!!!
Get ready to #LiveIntentionally
Today is the last Monday of 2015 and 2016 will be here in a few days! During this time many of us are planning our New Year Resolutions.
Many await the New Year to change those bad habits or embark on something new. The number one resolution is always to lose weight, get healthy and in shape and by February or March, those resolutions die. Even I have fallen into this resolution on more than one occasion. But this, I will follow through with anything I set out. This year I plan to live a year of intention!
I plan to live on purpose and every goal I set will be done with intention. I don’t want to make resolutions that are a repeat from previous years and never completed. I do believe when living with intention those goals do come true because it’s not a fad… there is accountability attached and the goals are broken down into bit size chunks that make them more obtainable! Will you join me in living with intention?
Share what your list of intentions are for this new year and I dare you to go further with sharing what you are doing TODAY to ensure your goals come to past. Remember, you must start where you are. Rome wasn’t built in a day! But with dedication, accountability and INTENTION, your goals will be completed!
Are you in need of a coach that will help you get there? Well, look no further. I’m transparent… I’ve been where you are and I’ve overcome. I’ve coached many that are living a life with intention and I would love to coach you too!
What are your goals for the upcoming year?
While doing weekly planning, I start by completing these questions:
I know you make look at my list and question why I do it this way. Well, I’ve recognized as an extreme organizational control freak, creating long to do lists do not always reap positive results. I’ve learned by shortening the list to the top three gives the opportunity to fulfill giving my best and give me the opportunity to stop, smell the flowers, have small celebrations and actually live and grow through the process versus just doing.
I believe in all work in life we should always showcase gratitude by ,recognizing what we’ve come from, learned, grown from and proud of. I did this on a continual basis when hosting my “TGIM Monday Motivational Moment” sharing Kisha’s Life Lessons. You can check out more here:
I also believe it’s important to include personal development throughout each work week. This allows my to continue to grow. When looking for personal development I like to focus on my strengths to become a master at it versus focusing on my weaknesses. The reason for this is firstly, Focusing on the weakness isn’t always as inspiring and rarely produces outstanding results.
I believe it’s important to master your strengths because:
What are your strengths and how will you master them?
Real leaders not only recognize their strengths, they know the power in outsourcing their weaknesses. If you are not good at redesigning your website and you know that is a task that needs to be complete to take your blog to the next level… reach out to those that are the masters in that area.
Remember, you don’t have to spend a lot of money on that either. There are plenty of talented college students or freelancers waiting for the opportunity to showcase their work… take the risk and outsource your weakness. This doesn’t make you lazy… it makes you smart and a great business leader. It gives you the freedom to master and showcase your strengths and one of them is knowing when and where you need help. 🙂

REPEAT: ” I love change and easily adjust myself to new situations”
Remember, change is inevitable but growth is optional. We ALL will experience change and for some it may be a daunting task but if you speak positivity in the midst of and even before, you can prepare yourself for anything that comes your way.
It’s not about what you go through but how you choose to deal with those things you encounter.
Can you believe we have only 44 days until our new year of 2016??
So many times we wait until the new year to make a resolution or necessary changes to see different results in our lives.
But, did you know that only about 8% of those who set resolutions actually follow through with them? Speaking of your dreams without planning and action remains just a dream. No matter how great the dreams may be, action is required to make them a reality.
I want to help you change those dreams into goals and accomplish them. So I say, choose to start NOW… don’t wait until the first of the year but put action to it today. If you put action to it today, you are setting yourself up for more future success!

Check out more podcasts here: CoachK on SoundCloud.com
God’s word says “be confident that He hears us whenever we ask for anything that pleases Him. And since we know He hears us when we make our requests, we also know that He give us what we ask for.” 1 John 5:13-15
When I dive into this message, a few of things stand out to me. Three particular things are
Being confident or as the dictionary states, “certain that something will happen“… is telling us that we shouldn’t question IF He heard our prayer. BUT that we must recognize that those requests are granted when they are pleasing to God and not against His will. This is how we will know He hears us and will grant our requests.
When I’m praying about a particular situation and wondering if God hears my cry, I remember the dissection of this scripture. It’s important to not always focus on what we need for ourselves but to recognize if what we want for ourselves, lives and those around us is in God’s will and pleasing to Him.

Life Lesson 6 and 7
Continuing on sharing my 35 Life Lessons that I know to be true as I lead up to my 35th birthday during this month. Here is life lesson #3 and #4:
#4 is all about not being afraid to stand up for what you believe in. From cancer, racial profiling, domestic violence, speaking out on sexual abuse to standing up for your rights and work that you believe in… NEVER be afraid to stand up for it!
Hey there, guess what…
And as usual, I like to reflect on my past year but this year, I’m doing it a little different. I’ve decided to not only reflect on this past year but to reflect on my entire life! I call this my:
Confessions of a Confidence Coach!
Each day throughout my birth month I will share thirty-five life lessons I know to be true from my thirty-five years on this earth. I will blog about it, podcast, vblog or whatever I feel to share the message. This is my way of giving back to the masses. I’ve decided my 35th year will be the year of transparency. My hope during this process is that my life lessons will help you to reflect, share your truth or even allow you to gain an aha or piece of inspiration from my life to continue on your journey.
Here is Life Lessons #1:
Throughout my life there have been times where I’ve shined brightly, showcasing my talents and being a bodacious leader. Then there have also been times I did not. I dimmed my light so those around me could be comfortable. My lesson is… “you should never dim your light for the comfort of others.”
Each of us were given a specific gift. In Ephesians 4:1 “As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received.” This to me shares we are ALL giving a specific calling and it’s our duty to walk worthy in it no matter what others say. Never allow your light to be dimmed simply because it makes others uncomfortable. You are not living for them… your life is for HIM and that’s what matters most.
“The #bible is the #answer key to it all”
This is soooooo #true for me. No matter what the situation may be, I can ALWAYS find the answer in the B I B L E📖😘
Stay #prayedup and know #godsgotthis #nothingtohardforgod#nevergiveup #trusttheprocess #read it helps! #morningmotivation#wordsofwisdom from #CoachK #activateyourfaith #bossbabe
