You were surfing the web and probably put in words like ‘purpose’, ‘courage,’ ‘building a successful business’ and boom, you got me!
Really? I got you.
Now that we got the formalities out of the way, I’m much better with the straight talk, eating a Snickers Bar and Beyonce bumpin’ in the background.
Who Run the World.
That’s my song. It gets me so pumped.
I wish I had a theme song when I was 10 years old instead of asking myself questions like
My stats were pretty bleak.
Grew up poor, living in South Carolina projects.
Had a crack addicted mother.
Became a teenage mother.
Tumultuous relationship with my father.
I didn’t choose this life.
This mess chose me.
Somewhere, in the midst of it all, I took the first step towards a turnaround.
Not through any hocus pocus wishing on a star type stuff or any trendy tricks that everyone with a website is trying to push down your throat.
I lived this.
I studied it.
I teach it.
I believe it.
I am living proof that what you learn here works.
While doing self work, I started talking to other women and researching what to do to live a full and happy life. But what I found in the research was shocking to my optimistic mind. Most women were in a similar boat as me:
Wow! I didn’t know everything, but
That’s what you will find here at KikiRamsey.com. A non-judgmental, inspirational and sometimes tough love environment with some practical, challenging (I know you don’t like the word ‘hard’) tools, tips, and strategies. More than just someone who thought it was a good idea to give themselves a fancy (yet fake) name that sounds good. What you get here is real.
That day my mother woke me out of bed in the middle of the night and took me to that dirty crack house and forced me to sleep on that springy, dingy couch night after night. It was life altering. At ten years old, I gathered up enough guts, enough anger to look my sweet, beautiful, loving mother in the face and think
This…this life, this thing she’s doing…won’t be me. I will be successful no matter what I have to do. And I kept that promise to myself.
After the promise, it still wasn’t easy. I was young and was dumped with a lot of responsibility. Anger and resentment soon set in and the moment I could get on with my life and ‘be grown,’ I became sexually promiscuous (clinical term for A hot mess) and was looking for love in all of the wrong places. Trying to fill a void that no one person could fill and yes I ended up pregnant. Once my son was born, I had a greater determination to fulfill my promise. And still had obstacles to overcome.
Wave your hands in the air.
Wave ‘em like you just don’t care.
Yes, you can celebrate too.
No matter the circumstance, issue, mess, drama, I got you.
Join me in the Fempreneur University community so you can get a few hundred more girlfriends who have made mistakes, made promises and then made THE decision that enough is enough.
I’m your girl Kiki Ramsey. Thanks for checking out my virtual hang out spot.
