After our wedding and dinner with family, we retreated to our honeymoon suite at the Marriott Hotel. White aromatic candles were lit, sensual aphrodisiac essences filled the air and the mood was ripe for romance. Excited about how we would move to another level of intimacy, we looked into one another’s eyes, smiled and began to kiss and hold one another tightly. I could sense that my new husband was experiencing something that would not allow our marriage to be consummated, so I suggested that we retire from our long, strenuous day and pick up where we left off at sunrise.
Weeks went by as my love tried to get himself together, and I assured him that I could wait. More than anything, I wanted intimacy. I wanted to be able to talk to my husband, and for us to work through our first challenge together.
This is the catalyst that began my search for answers regarding sexual disorders. The anger, irritation, and isolation that followed led me to the discovery of what I consider to be my life’s work. Operation “fix my marriage” introduced me to the same challenges that millions of American’s face with touch deprivation. It helped me to identify my “primary love language”, and to learn the importance of verbal and non-verbal communication in loving relationships.

Some people actually look down on the crowd funding efforts of social entrepreneurs although according to Wikipedia, in 2015, it was estimated that worldwide over US$34 billion was raised this way. Some still feel crowd funding is begging for a handout.

Back in the early 90’s when I was working in retail management, I wanted to learn from stories about successful people who looked like me. How did they overcome the obstacles of blatant racism? How did they come out of the projects and climb to the top of the success latter? How did they learn to be happy in the midst of systematic actions against them?
I heard about the book Think & Grow Rich: A Black Choice, written by Dr. Dennis Kimbro. This success guide got my attention, and the author’s last name resonated with my spirit. I thought to myself, here is a man who has interviewed thousands of successful, powerful men and women of color, and his last name sound like mine. I read Think & Grow Rich a few times so that it’s principals would really sink in. To support and encourage my management team, I gave “Think & Grow Rich” as an incentive. Once I discovered my true purpose in life, I continued to share this powerful tool with my massage therapy clients who were ready to make a shift in their lives.
