Readers will find Lakesha’s straightforward approach to personal development and self-help empowering. Her transparent storytelling of personal wins and losses weaved together with her ability to laugh at herself and others lands Lakesha in a lot of uncomfortable though welcomed situations. These situations lend themselves to what she calls #lifelessons. She’s pushes the envelope on who’s responsible for what in life. Encouraging or inciting, she doesn’t have a preference if it gets them what they want out of life, those around her to “do better, be better”.
She can often be heard saying “Blow it Up, it’s a chance to do it better.” She is authentic in her transparency, sharing her experiences because she understands the power of the connection others feel when they see those they admire or admonish become human. She believes it’s easier to reach people if they can feel you. Forever the student she advises, “No lessons can be taught unless the teacher is learning along with the students.”
Her introspective nature briefly encouraged her study of psychology at the University of Missouri St. Louis. However, her desire to empower people ultimately lead to her study politics focusing on public policy administration.
She has taking every experience, failure, win, diss, praise, and opportunity to create a life she loves. A life that allows her to empower entrepreneurs through her work at a non profit organization, while supporting her family business and raising “the boy and the girl”.
