B.A.D. Launch Day 3: The Challenges in the Change

Every day I wondered about my business and how I would flourish and BE SEEN. I was worried what people would think, what they would pay and how they would share. I never considered that what I was called to do, was not contingent on people.

Challenges of Changing the Mind

Wrestling with you mind with all the ideals you have and all the things you want to do is one thing, but when you wrestle with what others think about you and this will be perceived you allow the enemy to come in and change you. The mind is a terrible thing to waste; to allow an outside source to change what is inside of you, you move away from the original idea that caused you to go in business in the first place. That was where I was over the years.

The transition from C.K.Q. to B.A.D. was being formulated in 2012 but I wasn't paying attention. I thought it was another facet of C.K.Q., but God was calling me higher in business and in ministry. When I spoke recently about the book Damia Willis, FBI, I started to realize, by Volume 5, God was changing me; that was a challenge. My initial why were my children, now my WHY and WHY not were the gifts I was given, and the being ministry driven.

Challenges of the Change of Heart

I had to leave all that I knew about what I wanted to do behind. It hurt me to do so. No, this isn't about leaving corporate America, it is about leaving the desire to have a non-profit, or some direct sales businesses behind. This is about having a heart check and being in tune to the call at hand. The call was to use my gifts, in order to fund the ministry, but using those gifts meant not doing everything I wanted, but everything given to me for the B.A.D. Brand.

Challenges of the B.A.D BRAND

What is included in the brand? Well that was a challenge! In 2012/13 I was given B.A.D Billionaires Club, B.A.D Investors, B.A.D. University (coaching/teaching), and then the books I've written that I am sharing as B.A.D Books. I now have sub services in the B.A.D Brand to help women see, build, and share to the highest extent of their being.

The challenges were in the change of heart and mind that were necessary in building this brand.

Thank you for going on this journey with me!

B.A.D.F.B.I: The Journey Continues

After one week 750 miles south of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, I boarded a Greyhound bus headed to the West Coast; Los Angeles, California. It would take me 2.5 days, uncomfortable sleep, spiritual encounters and a long walk up a steep hill, but I made it.

The trip to California was long and the bus was two hours late getting there. I traveled to Cali in the same faith walk as I did driving to Mississippi; the problem is, I was going where I knew 2, maybe 2 people. I was challenging myself as I could have easily turned back around and went home; home to Milwaukee. It was my aunt (in the pictures above) that encouraged me with a few short words: 
I am excited for you.
Ministry is not what people think it is; very different getting dressed up for Sunday service and serving meals at Thanksgiving, ministry means moving as God says. Headed to California, I met people in the bus stations during the layovers. A woman headed home to see her children after visiting her deceased sisters children for a …

B.A.D. Goals: Bounty, Aspirations and Due Diligence!

It has always been my concern to accomplish everything set before me to accomplish; sometimes it feels like a burden. Yet, consider what a burden is; it is something we take too long to do, and do not lean on God to help us accomplish.

The bible says to cast our burdens on Him; why don't we? Because some of our goals are to show people we can do it without giving God glory. God gives us an ability to accomplish MUCH, but we must acknowledge HIM IN FRONT OF OTHERS.

What does this have to do with goals?
We can't expect to receive if we don't know with whom we are receiving from; lack of spiritual connection, relationship, with the Father.

Study the book of James chapter 4 verses 2 and 3 about pride and lust.

You cannot get help with your goals, looking only to yourself and your strength to accomplish those goals. With this understanding seek ye first the kingdom of God and all else will be given to you. (Paraphrased; See Matthew 6:33)

B.A.D Goals is the blessings and anointi…

B.A.D. Leadership

Leaders learn how to lead everyday. They don't just pop up and BAM they're leaders. These exceptional people take time to learn, and in learning they build other leaders. Why is this important as a business owner or entrepreneur? You can't lead just because you've started something new; you lead by the trials, the errors, the failures, and the successes from those issues.

The B.A.D Leadership challenge starts April 1st for seven days. In those 7 days, if you join the challenge, you will see how to look at yourself, build according to God's plan, and help others do the same. This challenge isn't about being a billionaire, or a best selling author, it is about walking in the authority and integrity of both because others are watching you!

For a small investment of $1 per day you can be on your way to INCREASING YOUR LEADERSHIP QUALITIES!!

#‎BADLeadership‬ challenge starting tomorrow for 7 days.
