My life has been a journey of self-discovery and learning how to reclaim my personal power. I'm an entrepreneur at heart. Almost twenty-five years ago I started my first business at age nineteen, on credit, with no business experience, and no plan. Along the way I had to file business bankruptcy, was confined to prison in both my mind and body, lost all my material possessions, and had to rebuild my life and business from scratch. Fast-forward to today I am President & CEO of iSuccess Consulting, Inc. a boutique business consulting firm and I have built several successful businesses in the technology, consulting, construction, and marketing industry.
life has thrown me some curve balls
Can you have it all? It depends on who you ask and their definition of all. If you would have asked me this question a few years ago my heart would have said yes even though my reality said no. I found myself married with two little kids, running a business, and almost at the brink of divorce. On the outside and through the lens of social media I had the perfect life. I lived in a nice house, drove a nice car, and owned my own business. Little did people know that things where unraveling at the seams and I was at low point in my life questioning my purpose and wanting to walk away from it all.
Oftentimes we put so much pressure on ourselves to be a superwoman. We feel like we have to be everything to everybody and live up to the expectations of others. We are working so hard to fulfill some dream that we had long ago, even if it no longer aligns with the purpose God has for our lives. We've gotten older and wiser and some of the beliefs and dreams that we once had we've outgrown. Life happens, disappointments occur, and people hurt you. Through my experiences life has taught me that in order for you to have it all you must first re-define what all means. Today for me, all is not about the big house, fancy car, and designer clothes. It is about peace of mind and walking in my purpose. A.L.L. - Authenticity, Love, and LIfe.
My passion and purpose in life is to help women learn how to Have it All based on what all means to you. For me all is being a woman of God pursuing her purpose, a submissive and loving wife, a nurturing mother, and a successful business woman all at the same time. Can I get an AMEN? While we are at it can we burn the Super Woman Cape because having it together and being picture perfect all the time is so highly overated?
Finally, a place where you can just be you. No expectations, no judgment, and no pretenses. A place where you can let your hair down, relax, and be amongst like-minded girlfriends. Everyone isn't coming to you to solve their problems. We are all supporting and encouraging each other with no jealousy. We are each discovering our own purpose and walking in our own lane. We get you and accept you for who you are. Join me weekly as I pour out my heart with business and life strategies to help you on your journey of learning how to Have It All.
design your business around your life
Are you living your life as a carbon copy of someone else? Is it time for you to be an original version of yourself and stop competing with other people? Are you ready to finally stop comparing yourself with others? Remember, you don’t need someone else’s approval of you. Approve of yourself and validate yourself. Run your own race. Stay in your lane. Oprah once said, “The minute I stopped trying to be like Barbara Walters, I found my own authentic voice.” READ FULL POST.
5 steps to building an authentic brand
Defining your brand is like taking off all of your make-up and standing bare-faced in the mirror to get to the true essence of who you are and identify what makes you unique and relevant. If you understand your strengths, skills, passions, and values, you can use this information to separate yourself from all of the noise and really stand out. Personal branding is very powerful because it sends a clear, consistent message about who you are and what you have to offer. READ FULL POST.
are you stuc in the perfectionist trap?
OK I admit it; I’m guilty of getting stuck in the “perfectionist trap” occassionally. Are you a planner? Well I am. I like to have a to-do list and know exactly how something is going to turn out. I will come up with a big vision and immediately develop a strategy. Often I get stuck because I am over-analyzing the “how” versus taking one step and realizing that the complete plan of action will be revealed. Don’t always over-analyze something and don’t take action. READ FULL POST.
I love to watch or listen to videos to learn and receive inspiration that propels me to my next level of growth. As we get to know each other you will learn that I am very passionate about teaching and sharing my knowledge and expertise. Depending on the day you might hear me talking about "What a pair of Gucci boots taught me" to the next day giving my summary of a great T. D. Jakes sermon that I just watched. In either case you can expect to hear a positive message that gives you at least one nugget or AHA moment (I love you Oprah) that will proivde you with a little insight for the day. You can expect authenticity, honesty, and love.

T. Renee has an amazing ability to problem solve.The biggest fear we had before working with T. Renee was that we weren't going to get results. Instead, things have changed in ways we couldn’t have imagined. Our revenues have increased by 15%; our staff is operating more efficiently and we are working less. Our entire team feels empowered. T. Renee has a true gift for pulling out the best in people. She is very firm, but kind. You will not regret working with T. Renee. She is a true gem and worth every bit of what she charges. It is one of the best investments you will ever make.
I loved T. Renee’s step-by-step method for showing me how to set realistic and achievable goals for my business. I am very cautious when it comes to investing money into training and coaching programs. However after reading T. Renee’s blog post and watching her online training videos I decided to sign-up for one of our coaching programs. Within our first two sessions T. Renee' helped me map out my entire bsiness for the year. She helped me identify income opportunities, create a product funnel and sales process. She is on speed-dial It's great to know that I have someone like her on my team.
My favorite part of working with T. Renee’ is how she breaks information down into a conversational fashion. Before working with T. Renee' I was in the beginning phase of learning how to structure my business, deciding which services to offer, and knowing who my target audience should be. Since working with her I have gained clarity, narrowed my focus, and know how to invest my time and energy. I am more focused on operating in areas that I enjoy and am passionate about. I highly recommend T. Renee' for clarity, strategy, and accountability. She pushes you to your full potential.
Prior to working with T. Renee I felt very stuck. I knew I needed better organization and a more professional feel however I did not know how to achieve that. Now I feel like I actually have steps to take and know a direction for my business. I became very clear on my big WHY and what I am meant to share with the world. What I like most about working with T. Renee is her positive attitude, encouraging ways, and the break down to business basics. For the first time I truly feel I have a honest blueprint for what I want my business to look like now and in the future. I would highly recommend working with her.
T. Renee' provides so much value to her clients that are lost in their business and lacking specific direction/guidance. She provides 100% clarity every step of the way. T. Renee is truly a business strategist. She helped me experience many light bulb moments. Prior to working with T. Renee I felt other coaches didn’t understand my challenges in being a wife, mother and entrepreneur. I had tons of ideas with no place to start. Her coaching has helped me gain clarity and shape my ideas into a plan that I can implement. Without this knowledge I would still be stuck in the cycle of trying to determine where and how to start.

Prior to working with T. Renee’ I was at a point of complete frustration. I am a go-getter and don’t believe in quitting anything but was at the end of my rope with writing my first book. I felt like I was all out of ideas and had said everything I needed to say. The questions that T. Renee’ asked me unlocked my creativity and pushed me to delve more into my topic. She also taught me that I needed to tell my personal story in order for readers to relate and emotionally connect with me. After each session I had a renewed sense of energy, creativity and momentum. I walked away with a ton of ideas and tools to push myself.
