This past Saturday, I attended Dr. Venus Opal Reese’s “Black Woman Millionaire Tour” stop in Los Angeles. I left my house at 4:30 am to fly to LA for the day – getting home at just after midnight.
I went because I knew that Dr. Venus had a message I needed to hear.
You may remember, that back in January, I helped Dr. Venus publish her book, “The Black Woman Millionaire: A Revolutionary Act that DEFIES Impossible”. On January 24, 2018, she took it to a multiple-category best-seller in just over 3 hours.
And since then, that book has sold THOUSANDS of physical copies (not one single “free” Kindle download since it’s not available as an eBook yet) and has touched countless lives.
Because she knew she had a message to share – and she wasn’t going to let the 30+ publishing houses who told her there was no market for her message stop her.
Let me say that again:
Over 30 publishers TOLD HER NO.
But Dr. Venus had a message to share and she would let NOTHING stand in her way.
Back to Saturday …
I’m still nursing Small Thing. So imagine my dismay when I learned from my midwife that at his age of 8 months, he’s probably consuming between 15 and 30 ounces of breastmilk a day. And I had about a tablespoon in my freezer.
TMI alert: I can totally breastfeed the baby. But a breast PUMP? Nope. No luck. Ever.
So my freezer was bare and I knew the baby would be hungry.
The easy thing was to cancel my trip. Put Kim-The-Mom first and stay home.
