I had the pleasure of recently meeting Monique in the summer of 2017. She gave off such a positive vibe & with her years of experience I was excited to get to know her. Plus we have the same last name so I knew she was a superwoman. Monique finds her inspiration in a few ways. First, she is inspired by courageous women who go after their dreams despite their fears, and anyone who is an over comer- someone who has excelled despite their circumstances. Also, she finds inspiration through individuals who use their gifts to serve others. Finally, her faith is a big inspiration to her and keeps her going every day, Amen!

Taking a walk #InHerShoes, an average day for Monique, we see that she is an entrepreneur, mother, and wife- three areas she gives of herself every day. Once she gets her family out the door, she usually begins her day journaling or writing. She keeps a gratitude journal and writes down three things she is grateful for each day. Then she carves out time to organize her family life, schedule or participate in meetings, and work on her business throughout the day. She typically works until her kids are out of school for the day, but has many days she works in the evenings. As an entrepreneur, she has flexibility to be available for her family any time she desires. #Goals
Monique has lived in five states throughout her life, four of these moves due to corporate relocation's. This career coach enjoys decorating and finds excitement in redecorating with each move she makes. At one point she even had a blog that focused on DIY projects and family lifestyle. I might need to collaborate with her on my 1st home buying & decor. She probably can give me pointers & save me a lot of money. #AlwaysTheGoal
Monique empowerment feet always needs the perfect shoes to wear in her endeavors. So we asked, "Which shoe is a reflection of you on Barcode Glam & why"? She answers "Black Cadence " She loves the peep toe on this sleek looking, somewhat classic shoe. As she ages, she likes to think of herself as classic in terms of having wisdom, but is still young at heart. Along with this, black is a color that can be worn with many things. Black is & will forever be sexy.
