Successful Role Model │ Leah Vernon

Our SRM this month is Leah Vernon, a blogger, writer, activist from the Metro Detroit area. Leah and I met a couple of years ago at Naturally Flyy Detroit (an annual natural hair meetup hosted by two sisters, Etta Fly Espy and Jennifer, check them out) where she was giving head wrap tutorials. She was confident, stylish and rocked a mean head wrap! I wanted to know her...


What habits do you feel attributed to your success?

Perseverance. I don't stop. Like ever. I may put things on hold since no one can do it all, but I pick whatever it is right back up. And, I push hard. I go that extra mile when others are giving a small percentage. I give 110% each time. I pride myself in excelling in ways that people don't expect from someone like me. I'm constantly educating myself, conjuring ways to reinvent myself or use my time more efficiently.

Motivation │Fitness and Business - Like Water Fitness

We have all the excuses in the world not to get up and get moving! Trust me, I have been there. I’m too tired, I have children and they keep me busy, I can’t find time to make it to the gym, the list of excuses can be endless…until your body doesn’t look the way it use to or your body can’t do the things it use to. Although many of these issues, excuses and situations affect your health they also affect your business too.

If you can’t put your best self forward, get up and out to network, converse with potential clients, stay focused, complete task, and create positive habits then your career, your goals, your success as an entrepreneur can be thwarted.
