The Single Reason I Decided to Do the Big Chop and Go Natural

2014-06-04 20.02.19

The decision was made when my flat iron stopped working.

First, the side of the flat iron broke and one of the plates wouldn’t stay in. I feared burning myself because the hot plate would constantly slide out.

Then, I had to twist the cord a certain way to get the flat iron to stay on. It was difficult to use the flat iron because it would quietly turn off as I was parting sections in my hair. What took only half an hour to do now took 75-minutes. I hate spending that much time on my hair.

2014-01-12 17.16.36I had had enough…

I no longer wanted long, relaxed hair. I wanted something sexier and more authentic. In essence, I wanted to wear the natural hair that God gave me.

Ponytails became my friend…

The last time I visited my hair stylist was right before my 40th birthday in January. I can go 12-weeks in between touch-ups. So, when April rolled around and the date for my touch-up arrived, I looked at the date in the calendar with indifference.

As winter turned into spring, I wanted a fresh new look to match the fresh new season. Even the thought of visiting my stylist to get a “touch up” made me feel bored and restless.

Why I Chose THIS as the Subtitle to My Next Book

utfomd-results-subtitle

Choosing a title for a book is tough. Choosing a subtitle is tough as well. Some authors will come up with the subtitle first, then the title. Others will do the opposite.

The order in how you choose a subtitle isn’t the issue; it’s choosing one that is…

Here’s the working subtitle I used on my manuscript.

40 Fun, Fabulous & Freeing Ways To Transform Your Relationship With God’s Money

Both my copywriter and editor didn’t like it. Something about the “fabulous” part just didn’t jive for them. They also pointed out that when mentioning “God’s money,” some may think the book will be on tithing.

I was stumped. How could I come up with a winning subtitle?

First, I looked at other devotionals. Some had subtitles, some did not. So, looking at other devotionals for a template on what to do gave me mixed results.

The Bible states that…

“Listen to advice and accept discipline, and at the end you will be counted among the wise.” Proverbs 19:20

Well, what better way to choose a winning subtitle than to ask the very people who would eventually buy the devotional!

I put together a survey, then I emailed the link to my list and posted it on my fanpage…

On the survey, I listed subtitles that I was considering. I even listed a few that came in from readers who purchased my previous book. I also offered an option called Other so people could suggest their own.

Here’s how the survey results broke down…

Grow Your Business or Ministry With THIS – August 16th

Last week, a client called me out. She did so in a loving and compassion way. My client pointed out that there was something I was doing that didn’t line up with my message, personality or integrity.

My assistant responded, told me about it and I went on with my day. But later that night while in bed…

…I tossed

…I turned

…I wrestled with my conscious about this

In the morning, I sent an email apologizing about my oversight. I told my client that I believed God used her to remind me to ALWAYS operate from a place of integrity.

I mention this because my client would never have called me out had she not known my personality, my position or the soul of my business. In other words, my business would not grow and prosper if I’m not clear about what I stand for.

On this week’s Seek Him First Saturday, I’m going to share why your business or ministry is not growing (and it has nothing to do with money). I’m going to use the example of Jesus’ ministry to illustrate what’s missing from your business or ministry.
