Tekisha Harvey shares the financial, and emotional steps she took to arrive at life of travel, high-value consulting, and living on her own terms.


Insights: Here’s what Tekisha shared:


  • Dealing with the “itch”, the vague  feeling that you have more in store than you currently see
  • The steps Tekisha took to maintain financial discipline and reach a large savings goal 
  • How to build your own entrepreneurial journey, whether you’re starting a business or side hustle
  • The power of networking to achieve your vision
  • Learning to define success on your own terms


Memorable Quote: “My definition of success is no longer the things. It is “Do I feel like I’m growing or expanding, yes or naw?’.”


The Homework: Take some time today to 3 these three simple things:

  1. Imagine that you had to create a vision board within 5 minutes. Name at least 3 items that you would put on that board.
  2. Spend 5 writing down all of the excuses or obstacles that would get in your way.
  3. Now destroy the paper you wrote the excuses on. Find one way to get closer to something on your vision board (even if it’s just researching the ideas for 5 minutes on Google).
