What inspired you to choose this word, TENACIOUS?
It blends well with all three roles that I serve: business owner, wife, and mother. I need to be tenacious with my business. Not every day is a success and I need to keep on going regardless of what might be bringing me down. When it’s late and I need to get one last thing done. I also know that I will succeed and my tenacity to do so will see me through. I need to be tenacious in my marriage. I need to work at it and make sure that I am supporting my husband in the ways that he has supported me. Even when we have a bad day I need to be tenacious in holding on to the love and commitment we have to each other. As a mother I need to be tenacious both with and for my children. I need to advocate for them when they need advocating. I also need to know that they will eventually become adults and it’s my responsibility to make sure that do that. I need to make sure that they know everyday they are loved fiercely.
