Not done yet guys!!!
I am SO stoked right now to announce Carmen Devault as DOUBLE emerald today!
I loved this girl from afar for almost a year, then we got to meet last month in person FINALLY and I fell even more in love with her! She is so beautiful from the inside out. She is following her soul and taking risks, and it is PAYING OFF!
I am so proud of her! Watching her team grow has been such an amazing thing. She is a GREAT leader and an tremendous friend. She encourages ME to push play and eat right! I am so thankful for her smile in my life. That sweet Kentucky voice and glowing spirit is something I will forever be grateful for.

Please join me in congratulating CARMEN in reaching double emerald rank!

I may be in Africa, but that sure is NOT gonna stop me from celebrating this AMAZING soul right here. I am SO proud of Julie!!! She has rank advanced her business to EMERALD today!!!

For those of you that don't know what that means... it means that not only is she changing her life, and the lives of others, but she is now mentoring others to do the same!

This girl is CONSISTENT and she leads by example, and is such a bright light on our team. She is so great at GIVING to those who follow. She teaches live yoga and meditation on facebook and encourages others to MOVE and get healthy.

If you need help getting back on track, Julie is your girl! PROUD OF YOU JULIE!!!

Please help me celebrate this amazing beauty today!!

"The world has enough beautiful mountains and meadows, spectacular skies and serene lakes. It has enough lush forests, flowered fields, and sandy beaches. It has plenty of stars and the promise of a new sunrise and sunset every day. What the world needs more of is people to appreciate and enjoy it." Michael Josephson

"OMG you are going to Africa! I hear they kill the men and rape the Women there!"

"NO! Don't got to Africa!!! Isn't that where Isis attacked that mall?"

"You are insane to go to Africa! It is so UNSAFE!"

"Get ready, you won't be able to have any ice in Africa!!!"

"What if you get Malaria from the mosquitos?"

"Did you get all of your shots? I mean... what if you get ebola?

These are just a few of some of the things that were said to me before I left on this glorious trip.

Did you know that right now the U.S. is on several countries "DO NOT TRAVEL to" lists if you are a colored male... because of the news sharing about them being shot... do you think the U.S. isn't safe?

STOP! And if you can't stop, then at least STOP projecting YOUR fears onto me. This trip has been such a blessing. The people are so kind and loving. I feel 100% safe at all times. They are so civilized in the urban areas and have everything we have, from coffee houses, to malls. If you are letting the news dictate your life, then you are sadly missing out. This world is a HUGE place! Bad things happen every day EVERYWHERE!

The way I see it, the more you feed your fear, the more you stand still. Living in a bubble does nothing for me. This is just the beginning for us. We LOVE travel, learning about different cultures, beliefs, traditions. So get used to it, or kindly unfollow.

Please peeps.. I don't want to hear about your fears. Please and thank you.

On that note, we leave tomorrow for Safari and won't have internet that we know of for a few days. I am fine. I am safe. I am having the time of my life.

Africa can't stop the momentum of my team and I LOVE it!
Penny is AMAZING. She has been on this journey with me for a while and just started mentoring others on their journey last month and BAM! She is so inspiring and encouraging and approachable. She has lived every step of this journey and that is helping others to see they can do it too! Just 2 weeks ago I was announcing her as an emerald and now today... SO excited to announce her as a double emerald today!

Penny, you are my bestie and my person, but you are now seeing how much YOU are affecting the wellness of those around you and I cannot be more proud. I am excited to see you soar so fast and even more excited to see what is ahead. I have no doubts you will be walking that stage at summit next year!!

EVERYONE... please join me in congratulating Penny today!!!

"As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words but to live by them." John F. Kennedy

We were so blessed to get to visit this Masai home in Enoosaen Kenya. This family took us in, made us tea and Chapati, told us "Karibu (welcome!) and said "because you have come, God has visited us today!"

We met their 17 year old son Collins who had to drop out of school because he did not have the school fees ( $260 per term) to finish high school. This is so common here. Something we take advantage of so much in the states. One of the families traveling with us paid his fees so he could go back. Hunger is not the issue here. It is lack of JOBS. This land is so lush and has so much opportunity if businesses would come here.. it would provide income that would allow families to send their kids to school for an education. The government does not provide school after elementary... and families don't have income so then... it is a vicious cycle.

When you know better, you do better. I will be blogging about how you can help support the villagers here soon on my blog, when I get back to the states and have better internet connection. It can be as simple as helping with tuition.

These people loved and accepted us as their own family and deserve all the opportunities available to them. Most just want a job. Let's get some businesses to open up here!!!

"Do it now! can affect every phase of your life. It can help you do the things you should do but don't feel like doing. It can keep you from procrastinating when an unpleasant duty faces you. But it can also help you do those things that you want to do. It helps you seize those precious moments that, if lost, may never be retrieved." ~Napoleon Hill

I had the opportunity to teach to these lovely souls while having a panoramic view of the Masai countryside. It is an experience I will never forget, and will treasure forever.

Whatever is calling your soul... please don't wait. First of all enjoy today. NOW, matters most. Then take steps to do all that your heart desires. I promise you, if that desire is there, it CAN be achieved, it just takes consistent daily steps. If a 43 year old cancer survivor can do it... why can't you???

The day has finally arrived!
We leave tonight for Kenya Africa!!!
Over a year ago my childhood friend Heidi and I made plans to make this safari happen. We wrote out what we wanted to do and started taking action.

Here we are! Our dreams have come to fruition and I could not be more excited. We are going to the elephant orphanage, a Giraffe park, a bead cooperative, hiking up a crater to view lava flow, visiting and staying in a traditional kenyan home and experiencing a traditional family dinner, visiting a local school and community, dancing and celebrating with locals, learning about how to help the communities , yoga on safari... and so much more.

This trip was made possible for me and several on my team because we took chances. We didn't sit and make plans and continue to sit. We made plans, and took action, and I could not be more thrilled. My wish for you is that you take action towards those big dreams. And if you don't have the means to make it happen, lets talk. :)

So be prepared for elephant spam :)
I will be documenting the trip via snapchat and instagram stories.
