How to turn your pain into a valuable skill.
Find what it is that you love to do and put your all into it. Create from the soul and don’t hold back and don’t be afraid to share your stories with others. Authenticity is key and those who can relate to us are more likely to come back and be loyal customers, in my case, readers.
If you dig deep and turn your pain into a valuable skill, you realise the potential that is there and the emotions that can fuel the creativity long enough for you to find your passion and purpose.

I don’t see myself dancing around playing tag with poverty as an option. Twenty years of going through is my stepping stone to become who I envision to be, living better than yesterday and building the future how I see it.
