I lament how EARLY my child gets up, yet I can’t say I don’t love our extra time together.
Lately she’s taken to asking what I have planned for my day.
What will you work on, Mama, when I’m at school?
Quite frankly, even as I detail specifics of writing I plan to do and calls I have, I’ve always assumed she’s not listening.
Until she started “following up” with me at pick up.
How was your call with Roni, Mama? Did you get writing work finished?
The above only served to reenforce a notion I already lived:
No matter what work I take on it must be work I’m proud of.
No matter the brand partnership it has to be one which I could look my child in the eye, explain and feel good about doing.

Reason #1 why I turn down most brand alliances.
From diet pills to foods *Id* never eat so why ask you to try!? stuff.
The other morning my daughter presented me with the drawing above.
It’s you and Venus Williams, Mama. I told my class you were helping her now.
Again I was surprised (eight never appears to listen) and AGAIN I was thankful (this is a partnership I’m proud of).
Part of my new adventure is helping Venus organize her team.
I’ve worked with Venus for a while already and more than anything Ive noticed her focus on these ideas:
Do Your Best.
Don’t Try to Be Perfect.
Embrace Positive Change.
Venus is all about the what you can when you can.
She’s for being the best *you* that you can be—-and that’s an EleVen.
The fact her apparel ROCKS, WICKS, FITS GREAT and is SUPER-COMFY is merely the icing on the gluten free protein cake.
- How do you do strive for your best yet stay true to the #wycwyc mindset?
- Are you interested in being an EleVen and joining our Team?
