“You can only become truly accomplished at something you LOVE. Don’t make money your goal. Instead, pursue the things you love doing and then do them so well that people can’t take their eyes off of you.”

-Maya Angelou

Hard work DOES pay off

Its been a while since I updated my site, and I’m here to tell you that I have been busy. My husband and I have been in work mode to accomplish our goal of becoming a nonprofit charitable organization. For the past 3 months we were working on this lengthy and very detailed application, and was tested multiple times. I had to make a business trip back to my hometown where most of my relatives didn’t want to see me because of my mini but not finish segments interviews of my past. A potential partner bag out of the project and was only my husband and I left on the board.

At that time, so much was going on. I’ve wondered why were people so upset with me and why did our partner decided to go his own ways after almost completing our tax-exempt status. So much was going on in my tiny head, that I got a little discourage. Then I looked back on my life and seen how far I came. From sleeping in my car, to becoming my OWN boss, I have no right to be down and feeling helpless. With that small prep talk I gave myself, I then realize who was important. The family members that didn’t speak to me, indecisive business partner, or my family and I.

Of course there are going to be family members, that don’t want to agree with you on YOUR vision. Of course there will strangers that will not get the concept of your dream and I’m here to tell you that is fine. Say what now Mariah? Yes it is perfectly fine, because at the end of the day, the path that you are headed down is the path GOD has specifically planned out for you. Trust me you will get discourage, but what you do after that is what really counts. Turn that discouragement into motivation. I did it and guess what, I’m am the Vice-President of my own company!

I know people that have goals and dreams that they will like to accomplish, but don’t have the support to keep moving along. Be your own cheerleader! I want to hear from you guys. Tell me a time where you were on that path to success, and someone hop off, or you didn’t have that support group. I want you to tell me what motivated you to keep moving forward.

*Don’t give up is the motto and ALWAYS remember to beboldstandbackup!*


EVERYONE falls down at some point in their life, but failure is just life trying to move us in another direction. The KEY is to learn from EVERY mistake because every experience and encounter are there to teach you and force you into being more of WHO you are!”



” FAITH IS, that it is not always in your hands or things don’t always GO the way you planned, but you have faith that there is a plan for you and you must follow your heart and believe in YOURSELF no matter what!”

– Martina McBride


This quote hits home for me. Just dealing with my current situation, where I have no other choice but to have faith in myself and in everything I believe in. When others around you, don’t really believe in what you do, it can sometimes have you reconsider what you are trying to accomplish in life. But that faith you feel deep down, that’s telling you, that you are doing the right thing, believe it! Trust me. I know that feeling when you not sure because everything around you is fallen down. I know that feeling of being uncertain about where to go next. The only thing you can do at that moment is to listen to your heart. And to be honest, that should be the ONLY thing you do when you are at this point in your life. Trust and have faith that things will get better and before you know it, you will finally SEE that with just a little faith, that things have gotten better!
