Welcome to the official launch of my first blog! Whoop whoop! 🙌🏽
Before we go any further, “lettuce“ make sure this blog is appropriate for you. If the way I used the word “lettuce” just irked your soul; Bye Felicia!
Disclaimer: This blog is not for the perfectionist, grammar police, or cynical mindsets. This is an evolving blog and continuous improvements will be made over time. This blog is for the fearful and the fearless individuals that want to break free from their current reality and create a new one or need a boost to just keep going. Whether you’re someone that needs inspiration to begin a new life or on the edge of jumping into one you’ve had in mimd for quite sometime, and you’re just not sure how yet… You’re at the right place. 😀
Who am I and what makes me credible enough to write this blog?
My name is Bionca Smith and I’ve been through BS, and turned it into a garden! 😂
The reason why I am launching this blog is that I want to help millions of families around the world understand HOW they can completely define and design their own definition of success and conquer obstacles along the way. Every person has a story and I’m a firm believer and living proof that we do not have to stay victims. We can choose to become victorious and use the bricks thrown on us to build our dreams and take us to higher places.
I have inspired thousands of people to make some shifts in life to achieve healing, freedom and happiness.
Many of you may know me as the inspirational Single mom you discovered in one of several popular magazines, podcasts, on TV, or YouTube. I am truly honored that my story has found you because you are my dream come true. Yes...YOU! When I was a little girl, I had a challenging upbringing, and I always said that one day I wanted to inspire thousands of people to get through stuff. Then when I became a young adult, I was faced with various hardships that prepared me and made me the strong and successful woman that I’m known as today.
I pushed through all of my fears and tears not just for me but for you too! My goals have unfolded before my eyes and I am literally living my dream life. Helping people create their dream life also means I’m serving and truly living out my purpose! Welcome to my world! 🙏🏽
I am an influential speaker, life coach, content creator and soon to be author and philanthropist.
Becoming Known Online: My Story
When I left corporate, dropped everything, and started traveling the world full-time with my then 7-year old son in 2017, I never intended to start a travel blog. I merely desired to start writing a book, travel, homeschool my son, and mind my business taking a few pictures here and there. As I shared my photos online, thousands of people began requesting a blog and a YouTube channel that I didn’t have. It was only after living in a few countries within nine months of traveling and thousands of people continuously asking me to share my journey online when I then finally caved in and started a YouTube channel.
Don’t get me wrong, I always wanted to start a YouTube channel, but I kept putting it off with excuses. I knew absolutely nothing about filming myself or editing videos and I feared that someone would judge me if I made a mistake. Sound familiar?
Even though I am a public speaker, I never felt comfortable and confident speaking impromptu in front of a camera unless a real person was interviewing me. It just seemed really weird to be talking to myself. I know many of you are reading this and are shocked! I imagine you’re wondering;
