2018 Emcee Monique D

CBEE3 Inspirational EMCEE – Monique DuBose

2018 Monique Dubose

We are excited to have our Inspirational Emcee Monique Dubose!

Monique Dubose could have never envisioned herself as a Master Resiliency Instructor, let alone a curriculum writer and an entrepreneur. As the owner of The Resilient You – Motivational Speaker/Teacher since January 2014 and the co-author of the United States Air Force’s official Resiliency curriculum; she is indeed all that and more!  She provides lifesaving tools to audiences to help them identify their strengths, believe in those strengths, build, and overcome challenges and conflicts.  Her message is simple:   “You” are Resilient and “You” have the power to “Bounce Back”!

She shares personal stories about being a 20 year Airman, wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, falling down, and dealing with anger, as she continues to the fight in this thing she calls LIFE.  And that is not enough for her…

Monique’s purpose is without any doubt to serve, by first being attentive to the needs of others showing empathy and making everyone she meets feel AMAZING!  She empowers her audiences to access their personal power and face whatever comes their way.

A sought-after public speaker, Monique has been the keynote presenter for Washington State Veterans Women Summit, Washington State Social Security Administration, many Washington and Oregon National Guard Family Readiness Yellow Ribbon Programs, and has trained over 9,000 active duty and reserve military personnel, military families and civilians across the United States just to name a few.  She also pioneered the Air Force’s 1st Airman Resiliency Cell located at Joint Base Lewis McChord, WA.

Monique has a list of degrees and certifications, but her love for people allows her to spend personal time towards community service.  She has volunteered over 5,000 hours as a Department of Defense (DoD) Sexual Assault Victim Advocate, Tacoma Rescue Mission, Tacoma Urban League, Hilltop Urban Gardens, Peace Community Center, and Sober Solutions Housing & Supportive Services; and because of this she is a recipient of the 2014 Presidential Volunteer Service Award.  She is the President of Jack & Jill of America, Inc. Tacoma Chapter, a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority and founder of Beyond Beauty Women’s Social Savings Club. Monique is married to James Dubose and they currently reside in Puyallup, Washington with their daughter Monee’ and her mother Carolyn Felton.

What an amazing day of putting our vision into practice! We brainstormed and figured out our areas of focus. We thoughtfully determined what is really important for us to focus on for the next 3 to 6 months.

We laughed shared stories about our lives and about the barriers we face in our experiences. Most importantly we exchanged contact information and felt like we found new sisters to connect with to reach the goals we have set for ourselves in health, wellness, wealth and peace of mind.

The room was warm, joyful, peaceful and supportive and bellies full of good food! I can’t wait for our 4th Quarter Ladies Vision Party!

So stay tuned!

CBE BRAVE

BE Brave Doll!

CBE BRAVE

I remember the moment I had signed up for a singing contest and it was being held during the half time of college basketball games. I remember the drop in my stomach and thinking to myself, WHY did I do this to myself! Why did I put myself out there to be judge not only by the actual judges but the whole University. Well truth be told a friend of mine talked me into auditioning but the truth be told I only really do what I want but either way I still had to be BRAVE.

I had to have a made up mind that I am going for it! I was going to tackle it head on and win. Yes, I actually did win it all! lol

Life often makes us want to fall back and take the most easiest route. The truth is the only way out, the only way to bring about change is to go through it. To be brave and face the challenges that create barriers from us living the highest quality of life.

Call out what is making you want to hide! Call out the fear you have! It does not have power over you when you decided that you are going to put HANDS ON IT! When you decide that you are going to HANDLE IT! Call it out today!

“I will have victory over you! I will not be afraid, I _________________________will be brave!”

Your Determination Informs Your Future!

Happy Friday Everyone!

I hope today you woke up feeling powerful, amazing and more than enough! Ready to soar in your personal awesomeness!!!

My name is Kimberly Walker the Founder & CEO of Curves Beautifully Empowered and this is Focus Friday! Our topic today is: Our Determination Informs Our Future!

The best way for me to explain is to share my story about 2014.

In 2014 I contracted a staph infection that almost took my life. It started with a pain in my shoulder that turn from nagging to raging pain. I wanted to go home and ice it or warm it. Just get me home was all I was thinking!

Got home it became worse. My legs swelled and in need for relief I asked my sister for luke warm water so I could soak my tight feet and after immersing it, my feet blister within seconds. My father said, you have an infection

To the ER I went and within 2 hours I was on the surgery table, my family not knowing what fate I would have but they are Godly people who love Jesus and they prayed for me along with my church family others who were called upon.

While in semi-unconsciousness for 8 days, I fought for my life between a dark and light. And I remember wanting to scream out and telling God that, I am not ready yet, there is so much to be done. I have so much purpose.

The 8th day I came full to consciousness and look around to see my family and close friends. Flowers and balloons.

I was also fully informed that I didn’t have insurance through my employer AND I knew I only had 2 ½ months left of employment. Oh and I was entered in to the American Beauties Plus Pageant for April! I had to decide was I going to let that moment define me or will I define this moment with determination to conquer this challenge

Four the next week I made small commitments to myself to:

  1. Regain my ability to walk and have balance.

  2. Mentally practicing my steps/turns to compete.

  3. Work on my interviewing skills.

  4. Go back to work and close out my job to the best of my ability. *Note my mom was over my employer and came to my center every day! Lol.

  5. When people showed me who they were in their speech and actions, I believed them.

  6. I kept my mindset positive and spirted with determination.

  7. I kept my daily prayer and devotion life tight to increase my strength.

These things propelled me to get on a flight with my sister friends and family to Atlanta, and compete and win a national crown.

Ms ABP Ambassador

 

My determination informs my future, it shapes my victory and my intentional action seals the deal.

Building Bridges Over Barriers – Focus Friday

focus fri

Click Here for Video!

 

 

Happy Friday!!!!

Thank you for stopping by to check out my chat about Building Bridges Over Barriers today. Unfortunately Facebook live was not working for me so you can only catch it on Periscope.

For those who are new my page, my name is Kimberly Walker and I am the CEO & Founder of Curves Beautifully Empowered. My passion and purpose is to inspire and empower people to soar into their personal awesomeness!!!! You can always find me here but also on Periscope: kimberlyjwalker, Facebook: /kimjwalker and Instagram: Kimberlywalkercbe!

So here are a few thoughts I have about creating bridges in life so you can be successful in whatever it is in life that you want to pursue.

BUILDING BRIDGES OVER BARRIERS

1. Have the right mindset! In other words, get yo mind right!!! Tell yourself “I will conquer this barrier!” everyday and any moment you feel fear and doubt creeping over your shoulder. Also make sure that you are thinking outside of the box! Yes as a matter of fact don’t stay in the box, think outside of it, go around it and flip that mofo OVER! You don’t have time to be boxed in and limited. The biggest barrier starts with your mindset.

2. Do the work! Research it! Find out who has achieved what you desire in your life. Seek out “think partners” who will stretch you beyond what you can see. Seek out mentors! And not the mentors who just want to say that they have mentees. Find a mentor who will help hold your hand at times and share resources.  And when you find these folks, make sure you align yourself with them. That means also investing in yourself and using those coins to pay for their time. Most successful folks love to share but time is also money and there has to be a balance so be ready to invest in what you seek. But most  importantly build authentic relationships in life will make you or break you.

3. Don’t stop until you get your yes. NO is temporary! No is a line that you can step over to get your yes!. NO for me equals New Options! It just an opportunity for me to figure out what else is other there. To figure out, what is missing. That is why I use vision boards to keep me focused on my goals and no matter what walls or barriers pop up I am still focused with time lines and deadlines.

Until next Friday, God Bless!!!
