1) Tell us a little something about your business…
I launched my company Bstellar Consulting Group in 2015 to help professionals and entrepreneurs strengthen their skills in public speaking, leadership, event planning and advocacy. I am passionate about helping others turn their vision into reality and equip my clients with the tools they need to “ignite their inner essence.” I will be launching webinars and e-books to make my services more accessible to a global audience. Prior to starting my company, I was unable to find employment in my field of government relations and public policy. After sending out over 700 resumes, I was committed to creating my own job by utilizing my skills, education and experience in sales, public service, customer service and administration
2) When was your lightbulb moment?
My lightbulb moment was when I realized I was hiding my gifts from the world by keeping pomes and songs that I wrote over 20 years ago locked in a box collecting dust. In 2017 I made a commitment to myself to publish my first book, Deeper Reflections of Life: Words to Inspire the Heart and Uplift the Soul, which was released in July 2018 in honour of late mother, Winnifred Berry.
3) Three words of advice…
Never Walk Alone: True success is measured by the amount of people you help along your journey. Successful people invest in others, share their talents with the world and leave a lasting legacy. You need people with broad range of skills to build business or team. Each person in your network has something valuable to offer and can propel your level of success. Relationships are your greatest assets. Show
gratitude to the people on your team. When the doors of opportunities open, never walk alone. Bring your team with you!
