Who you see today is the product of humble beginnings in Neptune Township, NJ. Mama and Daddy, Blanche and Ermon Jones, raised me well and I live to make them proud. As a grown independent woman, I had it all - the firsts, the titles, the cash flow, the influence, the prestige, the happy home…until I didn’t. Becoming a widow, and letting go of my dear Otha, and also witnessing both of my parents' passing, within a short number of years, pulled a number on me. Transition after retirement turned into turbulence. I went from moving on up to sliding down fast; talk about being stuck and having no clue what to do, where to turn next, and who to trust. In other words, I felt overwhelmed, confused, and stuck. That WAS me. Since then, I’ve figured out my next best steps, gotten my figure together (yes, I did win Ms. Black Fit & Fine at 69...and yes, I date in my golden years), and I’ve gotten my figure$ up. Through my books, podcasts, coaching & consulting sessions, and a flourishing membership community, I am now helping millions of women do the same.
