Did you know that business, finance & health have one thing in common…you guessed it YOU!!! Your overall health IS EXTREMELY important when it comes to business and finance.

With the confirmation that Kim Fields will not return to The Real Housewives of Atlanta (I must say it is a lost for them), we believe that Kim will not miss a beat after this show. After, just one season of ratchetness, cattiness and unwarranted competitiveness with other cast members that led to disrespectful antics…her light still shines bright. Here are 5 reasons we feel that Kim Fields is the Ultimate Real Housewife.
Kim Fields has had a long standing career in acting starting at the age of 5. Kim got her big break playing
Tootie on Different Strokes and later reprising that role on The Facts of Life in the early 80's. After the show ended, Kim later went to Pepperdine University and later started her own production company.
Kim later landed one of her biggest roles on television as Regine Hunter on the hit 90's show, Living Single with celebrity actresses like Queen Latifah and Kim Coles. Kim's character may have help rid the world of "wearing wigs are taboo" as she always changed her look.
Kim Fields was bound to get the acting bug as it runs in her family. Kim has had the pleasure
of working long side her mother, Chip Fields and her sister, Alexis is also in the entertainment
Kim resurfaced back on the scene with one season on The Real Housewives of Atlanta and discovered
being a reality star is not her cup of tea but that she is a true actress and entertainment and is holding her
own on the dance competition show, ABC's Dancing with the Stars; becoming one of the shows favorites to see.
Kim has proven that family and being a present mother and wife is first choice to her.
Kim is now married to actor, Christopher Morgan with two sons, Sebastian Alexander Morgan and
her second child, Quincy Morgan. Kim has proven that you can have a well-respect career, have strong
family values and stay true to yourself.

Do not solely rely on technology to track your finances rather it be business or personal. Create a love relationship with your finances, stay in the know about what is going on with your financial affairs. How you handle your money spills into how you handle other affairs in your life.

Hello beautiful KINGS and QUEENS! It’s that time again!!! Think About It Thursday!
Let’s do a recap of the last two weeks…
I hope you have become a little more comfortable with saving your coins! Are you seeing any progress with your change jar? If not, don’t get discouraged! Our first week we also discussed mind mapping. Have you gotten the opportunity to put your business and finance plans on paper? If not, you may really want to consider doing so, as it will help you stay focused on what you need to do to get where you want to be.
Last week we talked about our credit report and credit score. I hope you took some time out of your busy schedule to pull your free credit report so you can get a start on making sure your credit report and score are up to par. If you haven’t done so, it’s not too late! It is important to do this annually to ensure your creditworthiness is being portrayed accurately to potential lenders.
This week I want you to think about limitations. What limitations are you putting on your business and finances? We are always so quick to tell the universe we are not capable of accomplishing our goals. However, In retrospect what we should be doing is speaking those things that we feel we can not accomplish into existence.
This week I challenge you…you always know I have a challenge!
I challenge you to stop limiting yourself. Stop limiting your business success, stop limiting you ability to manage your finances and most importantly stop limiting your ability to be GREAT! Instead of saying I can’t say I can. Even though present situations and circumstances may have a slight strain on what you are trying to accomplish, don’t give into the negativity.
I challenge you to tell yourself everyday you are (I am) a successful business owner! You are (I am) debt free! You are (I am) capable of managing my finances in a manner that will lead me to financial freedom! Make a conscious effort to transform your mind from speaking defeat over your life to speaking victory!
As I always say we must start by taking baby steps my KINGS and QUEENS…baby steps!
Until we meet again!
