My Expo is returning in April 2020. I’m super excited. My first expo was a rebirth. I call it that because I had to lose everything in order to get to where I was. I ended a business partnership, closed a venue and was basically BROKE…… Then I birthed Born Natural, Natural Hair Expo. I sold about 100 tickets but by the end of the night over 250 people showed up. I was overwhelmed. The space was pretty small but the energy and love was huge. That’s when I knew that I could do this (MY WAY)
Fast forward to 2015, 2016 Two more Expos under my belt but at a much larger scale. 19,000sf space Over 400 people and It was me, standing there looking at myself in the midst of everything that tried to tear me apart.
So here we are going on 4 years later. Now I’m currently living in Georgia and have been for 3 years. IT’S TIME FOR THE
I wanted to change the conversation. Put the phones away and actually talk to someone you don’t know. So I created A SEAT WITH DAPHNE. This has been in my mind and heart for over 6 years, and although I’ve done hundreds of events over the years it just didn’t happen. So August 24TH 2019 was the moment I’ve been waiting for. I invited my guests who didn’t know what to expect. They came and were overwhelmed with excitement and joy. They didn’t even miss their phones. What we did is still a mystery and if you want to have A SEAT WITH DAPHNE continue to follow me.
This is the perfect time to kickstart journaling. I published a Motivational Journal to help people through the year. My Journal includes Monthly quotes, a calendar and questions to ask yourself.

I never thought that I would be a Doula but 2018 took me on a journey that lead right to it. I know, I know, what is a doula anyway?
A doula is someone that supports a pregnant woman and her partner during pregnancy. Doulas are non medical professionals who are there just for you. Well I am a certified birth and postpartum doula. I am excited about this Journey.

I visited a beautiful place called Cartagena, Colombia in September and it was amazing. I explored the walled city, went paddleboarding in the ocean and took a bike ride tour through the neighborhoods. It was the most amazing experience. I had the privilege to visit the village of palenque. This is the land of the first FREED slaves in the Americas. I can’t wait to return, a week went by in a flash.
Sometimes we are faced with hurdles that are seemingly unrelated to us… in those times use that hurdle as a moment of reflection. Then figure out a new way.
