10 Things Most People Don’t Know About Me





Alright so welcome back! If you're new here, welcome! I am Theresa, my friends call me Tee so feel free to do the same. I help women who struggle with self-discipline and procrastination take action on their business & lifestyle goals so that they can have more independence and really just create the life that they want.

It's all about helping you to actualize your goals by taking action and using strategies that actually work!

Before we jump into anything I need to ask you...what happened to the goals you said you were going to achieve by the end of THIS year? Are you still pursuing them or have you given up? Are you still fired up and excited to get it done or do you feel discouraged?

If you fall under any of these categories I want to help you. We only have about 4 months left of this year and I believe that is more than enough time to get it done so I want to invite you to join the waitlist for how to turn your goals into reality. This is an online program that I will create with you. We will walk step-by-step through the process of achieving your biggest lifestyle and business goals this way you can get on with your life and move on to crushing bigger and better goals! Can I get an amen?! Alright now let's get into it!

I can bet that no matter how well you already know me there are at least 10 things you don't know about me! I thought it would be fun to share them with you and hear what your biggest surprises are so if you're ready, let's get right into it, the first one is...

I have 3 siblings

That's right. I am the second oldest amongst my 3 siblings. I have an older sister who is the BOMB! She's really supportive, loving, and just down to earth. I remember when we used to live together I would try to sneak around her room and borrow her clothes when she wasn't looking because we were almost the same size. Lol! Now, I don't have to sneak around because she gives me the clothes that don't fit or that she doesn't wear anymore which are like fancy dresses, stylish jeans, and all of these really dope swagged out stuff so I THANK GOD for an older sister LOL! I also have 2 younger brothers who are generous and loving as well. They are helpful, extremely caring and gentle. I am honored to know them and truly I feel blessed.

I don't know my dad

Now this is where things get a little deep. I have heard many stories about the nice person my dad was and how much he loved me but I have no memory of him and don't really know what he looks like. I remember once when I was about 9 years old I spoke to him on the phone and he told me I am his one in a million but I didn't understand what that meant at the time. I don't want you to feel sorry for me though because although I wasn't raised by my biological dad I did have an amazing father figure who I consider to be my dad and he was the BEST role model I could ask for!

My mom passed when I was 15

This means that by societies standards I am technically an orphan. I don't know my biological dad and my mom passed away when I was a teenager. What a terrible life, right? No. To be honest with you, I believe that having these circumstances present in my life is what helped me to understand myself better and get to know God in an intimate relationship that I probably wouldn't have been interested in if I had a different story.

I did not like reading in highschool

Lol okay, now I know that I am the personal development and goal achievement guru but I was not always this person! When I was in high school I did not enjoy reading at all! I would do it because I had to but I preferred writing and being creative. Although I got a 90 in English class which is pretty high, it's about an A/A+ in Canada I really enjoyed drama and dance class!


I won a $10 Indigo gift card in highschool

I love fish tacos

Now, if you follow me on social media and watch my live stories this one might be a little obvious lol! I absolutely LOVE fish tacos. My favorite is from Joey's Restuarant (I also like their apple pie) they have a special sauce they include with cilantro and shrimp. It's delicious! I'm getting hungry just thinking about it right now lol. Whenever I go to a Mexican restaurant or visit somewhere new if they have fish tacos on the menu it's mine!

I used to want 7 kids

I know! I was crazy right!? Lol, before I got married and had my first daughter Layah I told myself that I wanted 7 kids. Don't ask, I don't know what I was thinking lol. Yes, I still believe that it would be fun to be around 7 kids, to love and play with everyone, but with running my full-time business, having 3 kids already and other things that I have going on I don't want to make the necessary time commitment that having 7 kids requires. Plus, I know there are millions of orphans in the world so I want to love, support, and help as many as I can! Maybe this will be my non-traditional way of "adopting". More on this below, keep reading!

I want to develop orphanages

One of my big life goals is to plant orphanages around the world starting in Africa! I have actually started doing research into how much this would cost and options for the best way to do this and you would be surprised, it's not as expensive as you are probably thinking. This is something I will do because I believe that children are a gift from God and there are so many out in the world who just need a little bit of love. That's it. They just need someone to guide them and show them that anything is possible in life so I've made it my goal to start orphanages and to support the ones that are out there doing amazing things and making a difference in these kids lives.

I want to adopt

My husband and I agreed before we got married that we wanted to adopt. Now we have 3 biological kids who are natural leaders full of spunk and energy. Their totally fun to be around and I absolutely love them however, I haven't lost my desire to adopt. We might do it, we might not. For me, it depends on how my orphanage projects work out. Once these are up and running I feel like those kids will naturally become a part of my family so I might not need to actually adopt a child in the traditional sense. Let's wait and see what happens with this.

I spend less than 1 hour/week watching t.v

Call me crazy but I am very intentional about how I use my time. After I learned the principle of converting time into something beneficial I changed my relationship with time which changed how I use time. Time is meant to be converted into something useful. It can be tangible or intangible but it should add value to your life. Instead of spending hours watching t.v I invest my time in things like developing myself, connecting with my kids, developing strong relationships with my friends and people I care about, and simply enjoying my life. I take walks outside and I learn something that challenges my perspective every day. Why? Because I believe life is meant to be lived not wasted and time is the essence of life.

I am an ENFJ

For anyone who is familiar with the 16 personality types you know exactly what I'm talking about here! If not, here's a little history, the personality types test was created by Isabel Briggs Myers and her mother Katharine Briggs in the 1960s. Their theories were based on the work of psychologist Carl Jung and it helps you to build self-awareness and to strengthen relationships in your life. The test reveals that I am extroverted, intuitive, feeling, and judging which means I enjoy being social, connecting with people, and leading by example which is how I inspire others to grow. This is exactly how I run my business and it spills into how I live my life! This is because it's apart of who I am. Discovering this about myself has helped me to figure out how I can best serve the world and I believe that it will do the same for you. If you are not familiar with your personality type I highly recommend that you take the test.



Summary:

I hope you enjoyed connecting with me today and let me know the one thing that absolutely blew you out of the water! What are you surprised to know about me? I also want you to take the personality test and let me know what you discover about yourself! Until next time, your girl
