One of the things I like about this is that it defies any category as it relates to black women brown, women, white women, young women, older women, will all find some reflection at the masterclass of themselves. Don't come if you're a woman full of excuses, because this will leave you with no excuse. You've got the burning and you got the anointing, but you don't have the structure, and so many many times you're locked out twenty you'd end up wandering in the wilderness. For forty years, when you got to the promised land in a year, had you had an opportunity to sit with somebody who did it and they showed you how to avoid some of the pitfalls and the delays that are set by there are some of us at all ages who don't have time to make mistakes? Very few of us will ever get an opportunity to sit in the room with somebody who's, a master, the piano teacher just a little bit more. The second tree was pollinated by wasp.
It was pollinated by wars. Finally, loss. Is the thing that connects what happened to you to what? The mix it was pollinated was yeah.

Some really ask of you was stung. Because, whatever stung you got to you fruit, your possibilities. This matter must to get to them up possibilities. Because a lose hope and if I lose hope. Whilst life.
That means that whatever become is less than what was intended. Part of my bitterness is. In the back of my mind, I wonder what I would have been I've been through what I went through And my success that feels successful because. You stole, have you ever been stopped. I remember the has gone down the path of the road behind the house and garden business or something.
