Back in the day when I was 18, I had my oldest son. My Aunt made it so difficult to live with😂😂😂 God rest her soul. Anyway, I had made it up in my mind we got to go! 😂😂😂😂
You know when your young hunny, and I had a child! You couldn’t tell me nothing. So someone told me about this little house behind a house. I talked to the couple on Pinehurst off Grandriver in The D! We agreed on rent and we moved. I was in church strong. I had just graduated from a vocational school and got my GED. So of course we had recruits come and talk about their colleges. Well I ended up at An Historical Black college in Detroit named, Lewis College of Business! On Meyers. It’s closed now but the experience was great! We had the honorable Donald Veils as a choir director and even pledged as a Delta, but ok that’s another story!😂😂😂😂
Ok so I graduated in May with my Ged, single mom, College didn’t start till September. What Am I gone do for money. I applied for Welfare I had to, I needed to feed my son. But even that took 30 days. Different people did help us from the church, my son’s Godmom, one of my sisters was always there, my Dad.etc….
So I always used to watch my sister’s when I was younger cook some good food and sale Dinners in the apartment complex we stayed in for money.
I used to want to help so bad so I could learn so I would watch what they did
So one day I was at church and a sista named Tanya F. Was in this group. I was young. She took a liking to me and stepped in like a big sista to me. Talk to me, feed me & my son. So I was over her house with her kids and we were all in her din. She had cooked and one of her daughter’s wouldn’t eat. She was saying she didn’t like something her mom had cooked right. Tanya said I be so tired, working, running around taking care of my Husband & my kids is a job by itself. Then God stepped in! An Ideal popped into my head.
Your gifts and talents will make room for you. I didn’t get scared, I didn’t hide my talents but I stepped out on faith! I said why don’t you let me cook for you. Tell you what. I can cook your dinner for you while I’m at home. Or at least let me cook your meats and you can do your own sides. Give me 5 or 10.00 if you don’t have it I will still cook for you because you are good to me and my son. She agreed. I would season and slow cook her meat in the oven. By the time they came to pick up the meat. It would be falling off the bones.😂😂😂😂That! Was my 1st side job! I was meant to be a Boss! You can be to! Just be creative & consistent!
