B.A.D. Launch Week Day 1: Why I became an entrepreneur

As I sit here pondering my speech for the Milwaukee Business Divas last meet and greet for 2015, I think about why I started as an entrepreneur. My initial WHY was for my children; to be available for them always!

I think about how my son was sick and I had quit two jobs to be with him and help him get healthy. He became my partner in my first business, C.K.Q. Distributors, which was renamed, C.K.Q. Gifts. After a few months of many doctor appointments, I reluctantly went back into the work force. I didn't know then that I shouldn't have; God was setting me up for something that was major, and I was missing it. Fast forward to 2015, my son is healed in JESUS NAME, and will be in the high school graduating class of 2016.

The purpose of being in business for myself was, basically, to call my own shots. There is something so fulfilling to making your own mistakes, AND, achieving success. The trials I had that took me over the edge were immense; people told me I couldn't do it. They told me it wasn't logical. They told me it just wasn't something others wanted to see or do.


I was an
Event planner
Travel agent
Direct Sales consultant
and more!!

I found my niche in helping other women, by being what I know to be; an ENCOURAGER. I am a motivator. I am a supporter. I am the epitome of IRON SHARPENS IRON.

As Coach Dana, I push you to the edge. I don't push you over because it's up to you to jump out on faith. If everyone is crossing the bridge the bridge may fall, break or collapse, but hey everyone is doing it. Yet, I'm the one that tells you if you step off this cliff, God will either carry you, or teach you how to fly.

As B.A.D. Billionaire Dana, I teach you how to look at and eventually use your resources to get to the billionaire status it starts with being challenged and being the boss. I will never tell you to reinvent the wheel; I will teach you to visualize that wheel on a luxury vehicle.

As B.A.D. Queen Dana, I show you how to apply who you are in life to whom you need to be in business and in ministry. I show you that it is not about what others think, but what you know; it isn't about the number, at first, its about standing at the edge of that cliff allowing God to take the lead. Someone said to me recently everyone needs a mentor or a guide; I am that guide that rest is up to you.

God bless you!

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. 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.
