Brooke: Hi there – My name is Brooke Simmons. I am a mother, sister, daughter, professional, and community leader.
With all those titles you can imagine life has quite the upper hand. If it’s not one thing, it’s another… And before you know it weeks, months or even years have gone by and that one thing on the to do list or simple activity you have been meaning to get to still hasn’t happened!
Recently, I’ve decided to reject the failing notion that we are simply living in a time-starved society and that’s the way things are— that our role is to just juggle as best we can and “make the most of it!”
My new pathway is to leverage the philosophy of intentional living in order to raise my own awareness of how I spend my time and getting focused on making the most of it.
Joining this show I seek to join a rich dialogue of self-discovery and growth. Through sharing my journey with you all, I hope to shed light on the process of becoming your best self by uncovering and examining key strategies and challenges along the way.
I also believe in adventure– as all adventures promise the excitement of the unknown and learning. So if you’re curious to see where we are headed and open to new learnings; I encourage you to jump on board.

La’Shawn: My name… La’Shawn Danielle Martinez. In an effort to define my essence without labels, I will say… I am not just a single mother of two beautiful boys. I am not just an educator with a passion for learning and helping the youth and the community. I am not just a sister, daughter, cousin, aunt, or friend. I am not just another educated Afro-Latina woman with over three decades of experience to share. I am more than that… I am a queen trying to build my kingdom. I am love, exuding the power of its magnitude through my dance called life. A dance choreographed only to be changed and now has a rhythmic flow, trying to get in sync with the timing of the Divine. I am light…with a power so great I cannot even fathom its capabilities and possibilities…yet. And so here I am, a beautifully, blessed work in progress, attempting to shine my light so that others can continue to see theirs.
LaVonne: “You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection”
Tara aka ‘Bunz’ aka ‘Fearless Unicorn of Love & Joy’: I’m a single mother of three. I have had my share of ups, downs and in between, in life. I couldn’t be where I am today without the love from God, my family, and friends.
For years I’ve had this idea/need to have a group of women come together to empower one another through this thing we call ‘LIFE’. To help encourage one another to live life to its fullest. For me, it all started when I realized one day, to be honest there were many days, where I found myself feeling as if… I’m not moving! I’m not growing! I’m not happy!
I came to discover, I have been avoiding my destiny and was living life by default. Letting the chips fall where they may. Thinking the worst while hoping for the best. I had a victim mindset and life style. Powerless and lost. I stayed running from my truth for a really really really long time. And I’ve been doing it with a smile on my face and telling others and myself everything is fine. I’ve been telling others and myself what I thought, wanted to be heard. Enough is enough, I want to be FEARLESS. Simply put I just want to be honest with myself and others.
So here we are – A Woman’s Journey which is designed to move that thought and yearning for truth into action. I would love to go through this journey with you. I need your help! I want your help! I also want to help you! Will you join me on this quest to discover one’s true self?
