We had the good fortune of connecting with Rhonda Adams and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Rhonda, can you share a quote or affirmation with us?
My favorite quote is “Be The Change You Desire” it simply means what you desire to change you must become the example. I desire to change my ways from being negative to now being more positive. Therefore I set the tone I start my day with prayer and throughout the day I encourage others to find the positivity in everything. What I like about this quote it can be used in all situations of life. Parents, business owners, children, all leaders and coaches etc. can “Be The Change You Desire” parents can change the way parent to their children. Children can set positive behaviors representing their homes when they attend schools, sporting events or around their peers. The business owners, leaders, and coaches can instill value and build up self esteem, self respect and confidence to all that look up to them.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I am a motivational speaker it’s challenging getting bookings constantly, but I have the faith they are coming. It’s challenging at times sharing my story to room full of strangers, but I understand it’s my purpose and others need encouragement to change the way they view themselves and having the confidence things will get better. I am learning don’t expect the people you know to jump to support you. I have to keep praying, pushing and believing things are going to work out and my work will impact a mass number of people. I want the world to know that Rhonda A.~TheVoice is the CEO of the “EyeToldYou” Movement which means changing your vision of oneself from a negative mindset to a positive mindset. I want others to know I’m not afraid of my past. I have events that bring reality affairs alive on stage (plays). I am a survivor of two suicide attempts, depression, mental weakness, abuse from being in the wrong relationships and having abandonment issues. If I can change you can change and become healed from your brokenness. I want the world to know it doesn’t matter who else is doing it they not doing like you. Never lose your Faith and “Be The Change You Desire”

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I first want shoutout God for saving me from myself. I tried to kill myself twice, but God’s Grace and mercy has me here pursuing my dreams. I want to shoutout my significant other (Travers) my daughter (Kyran) and son (Onik) they are my reasons why quitting is not an option. They are my motivation. My mother (Idell) who always say keep praying God will guide your steps. My sisters Cameron and Danica who attends every event I have and supports me and my vision. I want to also shoutout Pastor Simeon Moultrie (The Brook, Columbia S.C. ) and Pastor Michael Todd (Transformation Church Tulsa, Oklahoma)the way they deliver the word inspired me to obey my calling and walk in my purpose. In my pastor Mike Todd voice it’s not crazy until happen. So right now I’m operating in crazy faith. Lastly shoutout to Taylor Simone for nominating me I’m forever grateful.
