I accept that.

You know what I REALLY hate? When people label you as something. Generally, especially as a black woman, I get labeled many things because people like to rely on hearsay instead of their eyes and common sense. But thats a black struggle conversation for another day.

I have birthed 11 children with #12 coming in just a couple of weeks. I am a full time unschooling homeschooler to my children, doting wife, business owner, and author. I am a mentor and a volunteer as well as a daughter and sister. These are the roles I take very seriously in my life. I never considered that I was “great” just always making the best of the hand I was dealt happily. Prior to giving birth to some of my children I was raising my niece and nephew since birth so I had 10 children before I ever had 10 children. They are back with their parents now. But do you know what label people gave me since I had 6 children? A supermom.

What tf is that? I hate that term. I would correct anyone even those who said it in a heartfelt manner, that I was no more a supermom than them or a woman with 1 child. There was nothing super about me. I just raised my children to the best of my ability, same as anyone else.

Recently I was coaching a client and she said someone called her a rockstar. She didn’t like it, it actually bothered her. I went on to tell her that she can not demean what someone else feels about her because she doesn’t yet see it in herself. I prompted her to think of what she has been through and consider that some people never Make it out of half of that. To someone she IS a rock star. Perhaps if she learned to embrace the compliments that she will start to see more of the quality of who she is and the strength in which she carries. Her being a rock star motivates someone and when she accepts that, she will walk with her head held high just like the rock star, I too believe, she is.

That is the greatest part of being a coach, I find myself taking in my own nuggets of wisdom that I oftentimes wouldn’t know were there.

Its hard to see what others see in us but sometimes we must for the greater good of ourselves. Everyone is phenomenal in their own way and when we learn to connect, genuinely connect, we will began to see a shift in a positive way.

So when you see me with a shirt on that says SuperMom, I may not feel like it on that day but I aim to. Everyday.

What’s your label?

Harpo! Who dis woman?

Never planned on having children.
I was LOVING my life, free.
Never planned on marriage (obviously because I got that shit wrong TWICE!) 🤣
NEVER wanted a house because I enjoyed being unstable. It was fun for me to hop city to city checking out scenes and meeting new people.
And an entrepreneur?!? TRASH!

SO, imagine me meeting this gentle guy swooning over me (not new 😜) and trying to make me his wife. Like EW! No sir, bye sir. 😂 Having a plethora of children, buying a home, and starting a business. Bruh. Who IS this girl?

I self sabotaged at every turn without even realizing it. My anxiety was always through the roof and my tolerance level was lower than the depths of hell, and I was okay with that.

My life was CHAOTIC!

I had to learn that the life I was living was destructive (if you want deets on that life read “self accountability” in my blogs) and that I did deserve better. But how was I suppose to do that? Transition my life of coping to a life I controlled?

Schedules and planning. This is why I know that in order to have positive affective consistency, you have to plan it out. Take control. What you put out is exactly what you get back so be intentional. Plan it out.

How do YOU get “in the mood”?

Well, I’m a morning person so It may be different for you.

First thing I do, obviously, is wash my face and brush my teeth. I take a few minutes to meditate and stretch to get my body ready. Releasing any tension is very import because I feel you get your best outcome in a relaxed state. I usually have tension in my hips, especially being pregnant so stretching is very important.

Next thing I’ll do is watch a video or look at some pictures to really get in the mood because although I am a morning person, I rarely just wake up in the mood. I still need motivation to get going sometimes, even some fresh ideas. You gotta keep it fresh right. Doing the same thing over and over again isn’t fun. Afterwards I will wake McRush so we can shower, usually me first, so we are clean and ready for the day. We usually get right to it because we get up before the children so there is that time of peach and quiet so we find our groove better.
We opt to work in tighter spaces so their is a flow but we will be expanding in a few weeks so we will have more space. I’m excited to see what that looks like for us.

Despite what some people think working with your spouse is really great especially when you know your roles and how important they are. Running our business together has been great for us, but just like anything else, setting the mood is very important to a positive and efficient workflow.

How do YOU get in the mood to work on your business?

How to work through it.

Someone asked this question on my timeline.

Her. To the recovered procrastinators, overthinkers, and inconsistent beings, what is one hack that has helped your productivity?

I replied but a wanted to share my answer because this indeed is a real thing.

I had to figure out why I was procrastinating, over thinking, and being inconsistent.
Procrastination usually meant that I didn’t want to do something, so I don’t. I hire someone or delegate it. Over thinking meant that I was looking for it to be perfect. I have to remind myself that perfection does not exist and I can always make changes layer.
Inconsistency meant I didn’t want to do it anyway. So I rather don’t or find a better way to convey what it was.

Business cannot be hectic for me. I have 11 children and my anxiety is too high. I had to learn to do what I love the way I love to do it.

The bottom line is sit with yourself and really map out your feelings like you do your life/business. There is a pattern. ❤️

Life is hard. Never think that my intent is to make it seem like mine isnt. In all of my doings and getting, the most important thing I can do for myself is learn me. This is life changing. Try it and let me know how it goes.


Do you have to pay back stimulus money?

Yes and no depending on your circumstances. I know that many people are worried about whether or not they will have to pay back the CTC (child tax credit) that they received from the IRS for the past six months. Well, the research analyst in me did some research because most of my followers are moms and I know this money helped them. I have found many variations of the same answer which is basically “No”. The only way you would have to pay the money back is if your income increased and/or dependents decreased yet you still took payment according to the income based on your 2020 tax return. But you don’t have to take my word for it. Here is a copied excerpt from the IRS.


Unlike stimulus checks, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) will reconcile any overpayments. That means, if your income improved in 2021 or if you claimed fewer dependents in the tax year than the IRS knew about, you’ll have to settle any overpayments with your 2021 tax return.

Not all families were eligible for the scaled-up portion of the credit. Single filers’ earnings couldn’t top $75,000, heads of households’ incomes couldn’t surpass $112,500, and married couples couldn’t make more than $150,000 to be eligible for the extra $1,000 or $1,600. After that, the tax break fell by $50 per every $1,000 over the income threshold.

The IRS used the most recent information it had available to determine families’ eligibility. That could’ve been your 2020 tax return, or other proactive families might have updated their income and family information through one of the agency’s online portals. Others, however, might’ve not acted, putting them at risk of losing part of their refund — or having to pay some of that money back.

Experts say families in few circumstances will have to worry about paying back those payments — whether with their tax refund or out of pocket. The credit had high income thresholds for the $2,000 base amount and the program also had a buffer by design, given that families only received half of the credit through six monthly installments. Families, however, might potentially hit a few snags if they received money for a dependent that they no longer claim.

“Long story short, with these high-phase-out thresholds of $400,000 or $200,000, it would be a very unusual scenario to have to pay back any child tax credit, as long as you still have qualifying dependents,” Steber says. Still, he adds that “there is no get out of jail free card if you get those monies and you’re not supposed to.” (end excerpt)

As always I implore you to do your own research and find out for yourself. Don’t just listen to people tell you what they think. To make responsible and accurate decisions, you must KNOW.
