Albert Einstein once said:
“The woman who follows the crowd will usually go no further than the crowd. The woman who walks alone is likely to find herself in places no one has ever been before.”
And honestly, I used to believe in this quote wholeheartedly until I became a mother, entrepreneur, and influencer. It was then that I realized (1) nothing can be done alone, everything takes a team (2) being a digital content creator + sharing life’s experiences, you have no control over your following, and (3) there’s ALWAYS going to be a crowd that you can’t escape.
Therefore, I now believe in the following notion:
“Leadership is about making others better as a result of your presence and making sure that IMPACT lasts in your absence.”
In the beginning 2017 I had an extreme wake up call! I decided that I would begin to post “inspirational” messages as well as “blogging tips” to my youtube channel. Well what I didn’t expect was the outpour of messages from people who began seeking mentorship from me as a result.
In my mind I’m thinking:
“ME, a mentor? I’m just trying to keep it together for my daughter most of the time!”
But what I failed to realize was that God was preparing me to take my brand in a direction that even I didn’t expect!
To really LEAD!
Soon after, I moved to Atlanta, GA with my daughter and completely left my shell! Comfortability no longer existed! And it was at that time, that I realized I wanted to FULLY shift the focus of my brand.
Kmwexclusive.com is an entertainment/lifestyle online publication that gave me a start. But being “Kierra M” is my legacy! As soon as I realized this, I began to understand the shift! Kmwexclusive will ALWAYS be around! But you can’t complain about today’s youth when your not doing anything to make a difference. We must keep in mind that not EVERYONE has the same support system, if any as you do.
What are you doing to LEAD?
So while I’m keeping kmexclusive.com the brand, God has led my heart to embellish “Kierra M,” the mother, daughter, sibling, friend, auntie, cousin, and ULTIMATE BIG SISTER; by taking the word “Clique” and giving it a new meaning.
C L I Q U E
: a small group of people, with shared interests or other features in common, who spend time together and do not readily allow others to join them.
Such a horrible undertone attached!
Here’s the thing….. the undertone doesn’t have to be horrible!
Girl groups are inevitable! There’s simply people you connect with, and others you don’t. It’s apart of LIFE!!!!! But you do have control over which group and/or “cliques” you decide to associate with. And if you’re going to be apart of a “clique” make sure that you’re one of the friends who LEADS it in the right direction. Believe it or not, once your friends see you leading…. they’ll either remain your friends and begin to lead as well, or drop off! And it they “drop off,” they aren’t meant to be in your circle anyway.
My goal is create cliques FILLED with leaders, no stragglers!
I’m living proof that it’s POSSIBLE! All it takes is a small investment called:
