Each obstacle carried with it valuable life lessons- which ultimately led us to a path like two roads diverged in the woods. When faced with adversity or opposition, you can bend and break or breakthrough and overcome.

As a solution, you’ll be given a financial game plan and a wealth creating strategy.
In this new read, you’ll be mentally stimulated to think about your existence on a deeper level, spiritually empowered to pull energy in your toughest moments, and you’ll be equipped to secure your financial future. Overcoming is the blueprint to your breakthrough.
Life will always happen to you and for you, but it’s up to you to continue to overcome each challenge and make the best of your existence.

By Keisha Bloise
Throughout our lives, we face challenges that present us with choices to either battle against change or push us to the next level in our growth. The tests that come with these challenges can be ugly, dark, and heartbreaking. These growing pains make it difficult to recognize the beauty surrounding and hidden within the imperfections. It’s even harder while we’re in the darkness, to have a positive mindset and trust we are being guided towards our light.
According to Keisha Bloise, otherwise known as, The Love Scientist, self-love looks different for each of us. Each one’s journey is personal, imperfectly perfect, and evolves endlessly. Imperfect Self-Love is a collection of poems, quotes, and affirmations to ignite self-love, healing, spirituality, and self-discovery towards overcoming brokenness.
Imperfect Self-Love is based on The Love Scientist’s intimate experiences to empower you to love yourself more freely.

Uplevel Your Life
By Toni Moore Esq
There is something deep within the belly of your soul that you’re responsible for manifesting on this side of heaven. Whether you call it your brilliance, id, purpose, or gift, you’re responsible for using what you have to manifest pieces of Heaven on earth. Whether you grew up from a wealthy family or in poverty, God planned and purposed for you to manifest greater things. Now the question is, will you allow more to come through you than what was given to you?
From bruised and broken pieces to blessed and bankable, Women’s Empowerment Speaker, Toni Moore, shares her unapologetic guide to pushing through the shadows of hurt, shame, and poverty to manifest her version of ‘happily ever after.’ True to her brand of being real, raw, and relatable, Toni shares a story of how someone who comes from nothing can unapologetically manifest greater no matter what.
If you’re ready to break free of the status quo, make change possible, and manifest greater on this side of Heaven, then now is the time to Uplevel.
