It's not everyday that you meet somebody who "gets" you. I mean really understands you without a whole lot of explaining. From day one Kishshana Palmer got me. Kishshana Palmer is this week feature in a new series of bloghsow posts about my amazing women friends.
A little bit about the series. When I began this BlogShow endeavor I did it with the intention of showing lifes possibilities by being possible, What I now call living purposefully on purpose. Simply exercising my skill sets in one place for my own benefit. While exploring all of what could be done and how my life could fit neatly inside, it became apparent to me that I was already living the kind of life I thought I needed to construct in order to film a decent blogshow..
Eurila Cave is up to her neck in amazing women (amazing people period). The women in my life expand my world and show me how huge it is and how far you can go by just believing in yourself. Glenda the Good Witch (the Lena Horne version ya'll) sang it best; "Believe whatcha feel and know you're right". That all you have to do. Everyday one of my amazing women friends proves to me exactly this.
#ExploringAmazingWomen I hope will enlighten you to the authenticity of your visions and encourage you to pursue them. Each of us has a valuable contribution to make. Through this series you will meet 6 women making theirs.
Thank you so much for watching (and Reading) #ExploringEurila The BlogShow, I totally appreciate it.

NAME: Kishshana Palmer
Define your purpose:: I am passionate about helping non-profit leaders and entrepreneurs come up with bright ideas that will propel their mission. It's simple for me. I help non-profit professionals grow - through exciting training and coaching. I help organizations grow through strategy development and board training. And I help entrepreneurs figure out how to connect with charities who need them and make money while doing it. I see myself as a teacher a helper. a leader. focused. passionate.
What or Who inspired your present path?: My daughter. She's the reason I get up every day. I didn't start this life wanting to be a solo mama. I was married and thought I would be a trailing spouse. My career was necessary but didn't drive me. But working for myself allows me to be present for her in a way that nothing else could.
Have you ever thought you were better suited for something else?: Yes - being a teacher (although that's what I do now every day) and being a HR professional or Trainer for a Luxury brand. I know that's specific but that's my love of people, and my love of fashion in one!
Fear plagues everyone, what do you when you are afraid of a challenge? : I face it head on. But first I procrastinate - then I get my life and I pray. Then I face it.
Where did you grow up?: Queens NY baby! Born and raised. 1st Generation American - so I'm Jamaican from my head to my toes.
Top five songs on your playlist right now: chile.
24 Karat Magic - bruno mars
penthouse floor - John legend feat. chance
Overload - John Legend featuring Miguel

What are some of the "Must Haves" you must have to start your day? : Prayer and devotion first thing in the am. A hot shower. Music. Every day. Otherwise I am not my best self.
