If you’re anything like the women in the Mocha Girls Pit Stop community, you’ve always been a dreamer. You envisioned yourself achieving extraordinary goals. You created vision boards with luxurious homes, expensive cars, and career paths that allowed you to spend more time with the people you love.

But then life happened. Financial obligations made it impossible for you to invest in yourself and your business. Tragedy struck and threw you off your game. Life continued to throw shade on your situation, making it nearly impossible for you to see the sun.

If This Sounds Like You, You’re Not Alone!

If you’re a woman of color seeking inspiration, healing from past hurts, and a supportive online community to help you achieve your goals, you’re in the right place!

The mission of this blog is to empower you to refuel on motivation and ignite your life. I help striving women of color, make peace with their pasts and pursue their goals, all while becoming their best selves.

I struggled to keep pushing COUNTLESS times over the course of my journey. I know what it’s like to have big dreams and goals but lack the resources and connections to make them come true.

I know what it’s like to struggle financially and have more month than money and more debt than savings. I know what it’s like to be insecure, hopeless, and angry with the world because of my circumstances.

I almost didn’t launch my blog, Mocha Girls Pit Stop because I lacked confidence, direction, and had no clue what I was doing.

I was afraid to make a mistake. I was petrified of being viewed as a failure.

But I didn’t give up.

Mocha Girls Pit Stop

The women in our community, are just like you! They have dreams, goals, passions, uncertainties, insecurities, but nevertheless, they are all women on a mission.  These women are college students, young professionals, entrepreneurs, mothers, grandmothers, aunties, and the list goes on and on.

My desire to empower women to achieve their goals and become their best selves, was birthed from a place of hurt and pain.  Despite the obstacles I faced, I was able to overcome, and I find great joy in sharing my stories of triumph and failure, in order to empower other Mocha Girls to actualize their potential.

Do you have to be a Black Woman?

Short answer: No. 🙂
Long answer: When you think about the black woman in a historical sense, we were positioned to be the work horse. With our bodies and our labor, we funded other people’s dreams. We’ve been told that we are the lowest form of human being on the planet, and we’ve been treated as such.

The media, advertisements, mainstream companies, and product offerings, perpetuated the myth that black women are less than beautiful. Our beautiful brown skin was underrepresented in history, media, the cosmetic industry, lingerie collections, and Barbie Doll options, just to name a few.

The content here may be useful for women from all different backgrounds, and that’s amazing! But I would be dishonest if I didn’t note that this blog is geared toward empowering my black and brown sisters specifically.

A pit stop is an essential element of any racer’s success. Racing vehicles stop in the pits for refueling, repairs, adjustments, and overall restoration. Black and brown women desperately need a safe place to be vulnerable, celebrated, and encouraged… and this, is that space.

My hope is that Mocha Girls Pit Stop can be your pit stop wherever you may be on this journey called life.

Your Secret Inspirer,
