Let me tell you a story...
It was the end of 2016 when Kimmie Robinson approached me about starting a podcast on her network. Her exact words were, "You have an anointed ministry that must be heard." What was amazing was I had just wrote in my journal that I wanted to start my own radio show in 2017. We agreed that I'd start the show January 2017 but when January came, I was no where to be found.
I purposely avoided Kimmie's Facebook messages, texts and phone calls.
I knew in my heart I was supposed to do the show but I was afraid because I had never hosted a radio show before. I kept thinking, "What if the show flops?" I didn't want to let Kimmie down. In addition to that I really wasn't clear about how to design the show. I knew nothing about podcasting. I did not have a professional microphone. I didn't have a huge following. I didn't have money to pay guests. I didn't have a studio. What was I going to talk about for 30 whole minutes? I didn't want to take on another responsibility and not stay committed. I was already running Dare to Dream solo which was and still is exhausting and I honestly didn't know if I could handle adding more to my plate.
Nevertheless, I kept praying. I asked God for the concept, the vision and the name of the show. And God delivered. So in March 2017 I launched the "From Powerless to Powerful" show and winged it. My vision for the show was to use everyday people to empower & encourage other every day people with testimonials of overcoming. My soul's calling is to teach so I knew I wanted to through in a few teaching series.
Now here I am a whole year later with an hour long show! The show is growing, my following is growing, and my guest list is taller. I am proud that I didn't allow all of my excuses stop me from starting.
