Personal Mission Statement

My mission is to help marginalized women because I have found a gap in print material that addressed and inspired the how-to of their personal development. I am able to do this because I lived and worked in the inner city and was in their homes and stores on a weekly basis for nine years. I founded a strategic magazine called Reach UP that is distributed by organizations whose work is with disenfranchised women. Their clients, Reach UP’starget audience, love the special attention they receive when give a FREE magazine just for them with articles that speak directly to their felt needs and circumstances.
