After years of research, she pursued a dream she was passionate about . . . Life Coaching! After being inspired by her own unexpected challenges and experiences, she realized her journey was necessary to fulfill her purpose of inspiring, and educating others.

In 2014 Dequonna went through a life crisis when she lost everything (job, marriage, money, and faith) having to move in with her parents and raise her two children on a small savings, she had little hope to fulfilling any dream.

Dequonna's passion for coaching was initially sparked when she witnessed life coach, Tony Gaskins Jr. on a reality TV show in 2014. The work he did with his client was the same work Dequonna found joy in when encouraging and inspiring others. She never knew exactly what to call it until that moment.

In 2015, Dequonna began putting her life back together with the help of a great support system. Empowering others was the real hero, she always felt complete when posting her inspiration on social media or giving advice to someone dealing with adversity. She knew she had a calling on her life and it came in the form of wisdom.

Dequonna spent a lot of time in prayer and following inspirational speakers. Constantly listening to Tony Gaskins Jr., Zig Zegler, Iyanla Vanzant, and her spiritual confidant which happen to be her Dad" who had beat the odds and turned his life around. She realized it was time to stop running and embrace her passion for inspiring on a higher level. Dequonna started a blog and within 3 months of blogging, Dequonna had over 14,000 views. Fans writing daily to thank her for the encouragement. She researched being a life coach, and accepted the calling.
