q & a.

Q:  Who would portray you in the movie version of your life? Feature film, straight to DVD, or Lifetime Movie?
A:  Shanola Hampton, feature film.

Q:  What one thing would your friends and family be surprised to learn about you?
A:  I cry at the end of Undercover Boss, something about paying it forward gets me ever time. I'm not really a crier, so they'll be shocked!

Q:  If your beauty routine had to be condensed, what three products make the cut?
A:  I don't like beauty products on my face daily, except for vitamin E + Nivea Creme; I prefer a natural look. Yet, when I want to take it up a notch these three items are a must: Benefit They're Real! Mascara, M.A.C. Eye Kohl, and M.A.C. Chai Lipglass.

Q:  Are you the woman your ten year old self wanted to be?
A:  I've actually retained quite a bit of the ten year old's dreams, I'm an artist, bibliophile and I am still writing. The nine children and the husband have yet to be attained, but I'm elated that they're on hold--especially the nine children--I may get to one child, after the husband of course!

Q:  What is your alter ego's name? Describe her in one word.
A:  Lioness. Fire.

Q:  Food, water, and _____? What else do you need to survive?
A:  Creativity.

Q:  Would you rather have no regrets or no fears?
A:  No Fears. I believe that you learn more from failure than you can learn from success, failure leads to mastery. If you learn from it, you will eventually find the best practices. If you are fearful, you cannot do anything. 

Q:  What's your definition of dime? 
A:  This term is so nostalgic; I would define a perfect ten as a woman who sees herself as whole. 

Q:  What words do you live by? 
A:  Faith without works is dead. – James 2:14-26
