There is no greater crime in all of society than that against a child.
Sex trafficking is the second most profitable illegal crime in the world, generating $32 Billion annually, topped only by narcotics. A child goes missing roughly every 44 seconds in the United States alone.
Today, on the Power Project, you’ll be hearing from my friend Jodie Webb of Colors of Hope. Jodie’s story is one of restoration and redemption. She has answered God’s call for her life and is fully living a life of purpose. By God’ s grace she has been able to transform childhood trauma into a lifelong mission that stretches across international borders to fully restore survivors and further prevent these atrocities.
Not only will you be inspired and empowered by Jodie’s mission but you’ll also hear about navigating the obstacles of starting a non-profit as well as balancing a family life while pursuing a purpose.

Last year at my company's convention, I had the privilege of hearing Kristen Brown speak about The Happy Hour Effect. Since, then, we've been "friends" on social media and she was kind enough to let me interview her for the Power Project Podcast. We followed it up with an amazing meal of charbroiled oysters at Dragos and had a great evening in New Orleans.
You're going to be inspired and motivated by what she has to say. In this episode, we hear from Speaker Kristen Brown, author of The Happy Hour Effect. She is a self-proclaimed occasional know-it-all, sometimes workaholic, and frequent wine aficionado, but more importantly, my friend & mentor. Kristen uses her world-class industry expertise and research into human behavior to motivate exceptional business leaders to elevate their brand and skyrocket their performance for maximum impact on results even during change and stress. She has shared her expertise with clients around the U.S. such as Target, Women Presidents Organization, Live with Kelly, and many more. But, today, she's sharing with us her approach for overcoming obstacles, interrupting your thoughts, and taking action in your life.
You can follow her as your very own virtual accountability partner on:

I launched The Power Project vlog March 8, 2018 on International Women’s Day with the sole purpose of having a platform to spotlight women living a purpose filled life. I wanted other women to be inspired and know that they can do whatever they put their minds to. I had been working on launching the blog & podcast for 2 months.
I had never heard of Rachel Hollis until a friend told me about Girl Wash Your Face. She told me I had to check it out because the girl reminded her of me & the title is so relevant to my business. *The one where I tell people wash their faces.*
I started listening to the audible the day I ordered the book & had finished it by the time GWYF came in. I was so excited that someone else out there “got me”. She said all the things that roll around in my head. We have the exact same views on most of life. We were both raised Pentecostal. Neither of us have degrees but are still successful business owners, and we both want women to know that they were made for more!
And then, it happened. The fear crept in. The realization that someone else was already doing exactly what I was working towards terrified me. And, she was doing it on a massive scale! She beat me to it. Cue the self-doubt.
And so, the Podcast & blog we’re both put on hold. I wrote & recorded but couldn’t bring myself to publish because someone else had already done it better than I could ever imagine doing it.
How could I *compete* with Rachel?
And then, I realized, there was only one ME. I will praise Him because I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Only I can say what it is that HE wants me to say, and someone needs to hear what it is that I have to say.
There are more people in the world that need to be inspired and empowered than there are of us going out and sharing the message. The World needs More. More good. More empowerment. More inspiration. More purpose. More. Of. US.
So, whatever it is that you’re doubting yourself about, whomever you are comparing yourself with, whatever is holding you back.. SHUT IT DOWN! That is Satan's voice & that bastard is a liar!
You are fearfully and wonderfully made. Psalm 139:14.
You were Made for More!
