As I reflect on my relationship with my Grandmother, I realized she taught me a lot about branding.
Branding is simply a consistent feeling, image, and experience desired from a product conveyed to the general public. Basically, you – the person/entrepreneur – are the brand. The minute someone interfaces with you, they are deciding if they should do business with your brand based on their perception of you.
My Grandma transitioned on May 11, 2012, and her warmth stays with me each day as I welcome her guidance.
This week has been emotional because you realize that life is a gift and you are given a short period of time to really make a contribution.
Bottom Line: My Grandma has prepared me for life as a PR/Brand Expert and I celebrate her each day, minute, second, hour and moment. She has influenced my passion for life, travel, fashion, food, love, education, family, money, and my hair psychosis.

Here is what we can learn from Jada Pinkett Smith on marriage — it’s challenging!
Will and Jada have been under so much speculation as it relates to the status of their marriage recently, and, the crazy tweets from their children certainly did not help the rumors. With that said, it seems that love is stronger than paparazzi haters and they are still going strong.
Thank you, Jada, for releasing the ‘Burn’ video and letting us know that through the challenges there is hope, sunshine and a rebirth.
Let me know how do you keep it going strong as we prepare to celebrate ‘Black Marriage Day?’
