"Shoot Your Shot!
The secret to all of this is balancing the masculine and feminine energy within you.
Over time, society has done a fabulous and sadistic job at making us believe we have to be one or the other.
It's about the energy not the physical... ⠀⠀
Those if us who get stuck in the box/matrix should know that you have all the tools you need to get all that you desire. ⠀⠀
Pull from that energy what you need to get shit done.
Sometimes there is balance and sometimes there's not -- and that's okay.
You've the power to work and manipulate the energy around you.
There's nothing different from you and those you admire except that they stepped into their power and accepted their birthright!
Spend some time with YOURSELF to find out if you're exhibiting too much of one and not the other and how it may be causing blockages in your life.
As my momma says, "You ain't getting any younger." We've all heard that tomorrow's not promised, so what the fuck are we waiting for?!
Work your fucking magic!
Strategy, Sensuality, Success!
Be the bossy Bruja of your own life.
Decide on one thing you want, and take at least one step toward obtaining it today.
If you're not sure how, find a mentor. Find someone who is where you want to be and got there via a path similar to yours and ask. The worse thing that can happen is they say, "I can't help you." But guess what, you'll be no "worse" off than before your ask. ⠀⠀
Never let fear of rejection hold you back. It's a fear and a fucking curse.
and #haveAwonderful ...
#fuckyourbox I don't even want one when I die!

Have you ever wondered where exactly the women in STEM are around you?
We too. But wondering won’t get us anywhere, so let’s break the stereotypes on gender gaps. How you ask (there’s tons of ways) - [ ] Be authentic and present
- [ ] Share your ideas and participate in open source
- [ ] Stand up more and encourage younger women and girls in STEM (Tell someone about CAWSTEM)
- [ ] Don't hide your successes, celebrate accomplishment
- [ ] Take advantage of online courses - [ ] Bounce back from setbacks
- [ ] Be bold and do not let your gender define you
- [ ] Stay grounded (stay woke😜) #timesup#timesnow#connectingafricanwomeninstem#promotingafricanwomeninstem#connectingafricanwomen#womeninstem#womenintech#africaconnect
Whenever we need inspiration, we revisit this interview co-founder @daniellenewnham did with @damestephanie_ for her Female Innovators at Work book. Having arrived in England as a 5 year-old refugee fleeing Nazi Germany, Dame Stephanie went on to build a multi-million pound software company that predominantly employed mothers. Since the sale of her business, she has given many millions away to causes close to heart - information technology which is her passion and career, and autism which her son suffered from before he sadly passed at 35 from an epileptic fit.
This woman is a fighter. She overcame many different kinds of adversity, and continues to live her life in her words as someone "worth saving." A true inspiration to all (full interview on our @facebook page) 🙏🏽♥️ #womenintech#femalefounders#entrepreneur#innovator#womeninbusiness#refugee#inspiration#rolemodel

I’m having a bit of a hard time at the minute. I’ve talked about ‘never comparing yourself to other developers’ before, but I actually find this pretty hard to follow myself. I’m finding it difficult to come to terms with the fact that some developers pick up libraries / frameworks up a lot quicker than others & also some people have more time on their hands to do so.
I personally wish I had more time on my hands to cover React in more depth because I really don’t feel as though the 3 hours a day I get to invest into it is quite enough 😩
I’m about to zone out for the night & try and make some progress before I go to sleep.
I’ve had a good day in the sense that I completed a lot at work today, but I just don’t feel like I’ve ‘achieved’ much recently. I’m not sure how I can overcome this feeling, but I’m hoping I’ll figure it out over the next few weeks 😊
I’ve had a lot of recommendations to try VS Code so that’s what I’m doing this evening. I’m going to give myself a few hours to get used to it & see how I feel. I’ve been using Atom for two years now & it feels so weird changing over to a new text editor without my custom snippets & configuration.
I hope you’re all having a wonderful Tuesday / Wednesday wherever you are in the world ❣️
PS. Sorry for the bad lighting, whenever I have the main light on in my room it feels like a doctors surgery with how bright it is 😂 I find it way easier to zone in when the lighting is a lot softer for some reason?
'We are a group of women who come from different backgrounds but many of us have a common, shared experience: we were in fulfilling careers but then chose to take a career break in order to look after children. While that decision was the right one for our families, we now find ourselves left behind with the emergence of social media. So much that is different, yet so much in common.'⠀
That was a quote from one of the women in our London cohort. We wanted to share it as we know there are so many women out there who feel left behind with technology. Spending time in a group environment learning how to use modern technology can be very rewarding. Why not check out the link in our bio to find out more about our courses and register your interest if tackling your technophobia is an important goal of yours in 2018. ⠀

This was two years ago! My first book signing held at Barnes & Noble.
I was so nervous when I scheduled the meeting to discuss with management hosting my author event in their store.
And, I sure got more than what I originally anticipated. This is why I teach my clients about the "A.S.K. for more" technique.
Not only did I do a book signing, 30 minute talk about my book, and relocation to the front of the store to greet the customers as they entered BUT Barnes & Noble did all the publicity with the local media.
The moral of the story is never be afraid to ask for what you want. You never know who God has assigned to partner with your vision and destiny.

I just wanted to share my proud moment.🤗 I applied for this program because I really thought it would be great CE and also great to have a certification from Google under my belt. I applied for a scholarship, not sure of the outcome but knowing if I didn’t try, the opportunity would pass me by.
Today I got this email stating I got the scholarship I applied for and am able to start the program.😁 The big take away is, TRY. Go for that promotion, jump into a new career, start a new hobby! You’ll never know what could happen if you don’t try! 💜
