In her own words -
"For many years I had been pondering, “What am I supposed to do with my life?” The answer came at 4:30 a.m. on July 25, 2017, the reassuring voice of God whispered to me, “Do the cakes first!”
When you think of cakes the first thing that comes to mind is a delicious sweet treat. While I do make the best cakes on Earth, CAKES became my manifesto.
Silver Spoon Desserts was born in August 2017. I prepared my business plan and started baking! Everything lined up with my calling. Giant doors began to open.
My grandson asked me “Mom, why are you baking so many cakes?” I answered “Because it’s the way out! Success came my way. I entered and won three business plan pitch competitions from $2,500, then $10,000, and finally $25,000. Winning the prizes boosted my confidence and set me on a blazing path of success.
I am on a mission to transform, enrich, and empower the lives of women -especially single mothers. We are transforming the “silver spoon” from a symbol of privilege to a symbol of inspiration, prosperity and freedom for all!
Because life is the richest, most delicious cake on Earth. Then imagine the magic. Add your own silver spoon, especially when there are none to be found. The big “aha”: you create the spoon, the opportunity, the promise, the hope. The silver spoon is inside you. It always has been.
It took Courage to see the silver spoon. I had to create courage when courage is scarce. The courage to create, to make a difference, to lend a hand to those in need, to believe when no one else around me believed. Courage meant having faith in myself. This was the only way up and out.
Then I took massive Action. I connected with people. I shared my vision and dreams. I lived my values and let the world see them every moment and with every decision I make. I never stopped taking action. I made plans and executed them. You see, I was no longer dreaming, I was doing.
I brought Kindness with me. Kindness comes from love — love for what I do and the people I am doing it for. Kindness is light in a world sometimes dark.
I put 100% Effort behind everything I do. I am all in for my family, my employees, and for every single mother on planet Earth that needs a way up and out. I am my own best advocate. This is my remarkable responsibility.
Lastly, I accepted all my current and future Success with grace. I am humble, grateful, and generous in sharing of all that I have achieved.
Because life tastes good!"
