The thing that makes me most happy and fulfilled is waking up every day and using my gifts to serve, empower, and impact women globally. I am always thinking about ways through my personal experiences, conversations with friends, family members, mentors, and mentees on the pressing issues that are impacting their day-to-day lives, and how I can use my skills as a vehicle to alleviate those pressures.

Tony Henderson | Podcaster and Moderator

So I’ve recently been thinking A LOT about what makes me happy. I think it’s a question that a lot of people take for granted, and most probably don’t really understand what it truly means. When I first started thinking about it, a lot of what I would consider “topical responses” came to mind such as: spending time with family, a walk on the beach, or maybe a great meal. All of those things are certainly enjoyable, but is it really that *thing* that lights you up like nothing else. I certainly have my list of enjoyable things, but it wasn’t until perusing numerous hobbies that I found a very specific niche that lit me up like nothing else. Read more>>

Happiness is a state of mind and we have to strive to make ourselves happy. I was raised to learn how to entertain myself and always bring my personality into whatever I do. Happiness is accepting who you are, where you come from, how you were raised , what you have been through (struggles and successes). When you know who you are, what you stand for and believe in, you are not afraid to lose and gain friends. Friendship do not define happiness, but we need network to succeed. Read more>>

Good, genuine, and loving people make me happy. People who actively try to make the world a better place. People who speak life into others. Giving back and volunteering in the community also makes me happy. It keeps me humble as well. Seeing others smile and win makes me happy. Hyping others up and reminding them of their dopeness. I love all that. I think about it like this: life is already hard for folks, why make it harder? Read more>>
