I feel incredibly blessed to be able to do what I love everyday. I regret not following my heart when it comes to my career. Earlier in my life I taught that my career choices should be linked to money. Happiness and purpose did not rank very high for me. However, if I am being honest, I knew something was a little bit off.
Somewhere along my journey, I stumbled along the fact the happiness has to be at the center of everything I do. Whenever it is not present in a relationship or environment, it is not lasting. There is a big difference between doing what you love for the right price and being paid a high price to do what you hate.

What I have learnt through my poor career, relationships, business choices is that happiness is the most important ingredient for ultimate success to occur in any relationship or situation. I have learnt that real success can only happen where true happiness exists.
Today, I feel incredibly blessed to be able to do what I love. I am gangster about protecting my “happy zone” and mental wellness. This is the reason the ladies and I are doing this “Happiness Series. We have been doing the work in our own lives and we get it.
As I mentioned in my book, “Thirty Days To Lasting Happiness”, “Happiness Heals”. Wherever you find yourself in a bad situation in your life, focus on gratitude and on finding your way back to happiness, and see what happens.
In our upcoming podcast, we will be discussing “Does Money Make You Happy?” Can’t wait for you to hear what my queens have to say about money and happiness. We have ladies from USA, Tanzania, Caribbean and India. The queens are pulling up from around the world, to talk about what we have in common. Many of these ladies are meeting each other for the first time on the Askbasiavideopodcast. Despite our different zip codes we have had pretty much the same experiences.( It’s like we all read a “female bible or something.”) For many of us, this platform brings healing, as we strive to inspire and motivate other women around the world. You feel me⁉️ Stay tuned.
