PWH: Besides being a coach, you are an author of an influential book entitled: "I am Her." Tell us about it? LC: "I am Her" Book is about a woman on a journey to finding "HER" (Healed, Empowered & Renewed). My book is a mini self-help guide. This guide will help awaken your awareness about yourself & others. Come ride along my journey of finding & accepting myself. I was so grateful to share a little bit of my journey with the world. I share my insecurities & imperfections. I also share my determination & hard work. If you ever lost yourself, this book is for you. I decided I love myself enough to become the best "HER" I can be. I decided to share my story to inspire others. PWH: What inspired your decision to become a coach? LC: My decision to become a Coach was a natural career path for me. I wasn't dealt a smooth hand in life. I have been used, abused, broken & mistreated. I suffered a lot of trauma & abuse during my pregnancy. My daughter suffered from mental health obstacles behind my abuse. My daughter was in my stomach she felt all my pain. As I sought help for her, she helped me start to love myself more. Loving myself more motivated me to seek help for my mental health. I wasn't able to heal before becoming a mom at 19 years old, then my 2nd daughter at age 23, from things I experienced during my childhood. But, My daughters motivated me to be a better version of myself. As I went through my levels within the transition to becoming "HER," I helped others. I was always giving to others when I had nothing to offer. I would speak in class (college)about a topic after class people would line up to talk to me. I didn't know what I was doing at the time. I would lead by example and give my honest opinion. I motivated them consistently while working on an action plan we created. As I went through college & working in the field, I learned that I'm the "help" it's a calling to serve my father's people. PWH: What are some challenges you faced when becoming an author? LC: I faced a few challenges during the process of completing my book. I was already over-worked and drained, but I refuse to let anything disturb my focus. It took a little bit longer than I anticipated due to my life duties. I'm a wife, mother of 2 daughters who deal with obstacles daily. I was working full time during the day; then, in the evenings, I would see clients. I had to build myself up as a Psychotherapist in our community. Plus, I own/run a Toys for Tots drive. On top of this, I was writing my book. I had writer's block(my mind went blank) from being exhausted. I pushed myself, I applied self-care, and I never gave up. Consistently is vital, no matter how many times you restart your mission/goal, never give up on you. PWH: What advice would you give a current coach, who wants to publish a book? LC: My advice to anyone who wants to become an author is to be persistent with your goal. I suggest setting goals with dates and timelines. Also, create a routine, set aside time for your project. Understand that things take time and patience. Journal and apply self-care so that you are in a great mental space to take breaks when needed and apply pressure when needed. "A pretty woman who hustles, in my opinion, is a woman who is limitless to trying to accomplish her goals. She is confident and beautiful inside out with a pure genuine spirit. She exudes goal-getter to the highest power. She is always working on new goals; She's always willing to help others as well. She is diligent & persistent with a humble attitude . She is a pretty woman who hustles." - Latrina Caldwell
