I pray that everyone is good health and with a peace of mind... Well, as we draw closer to the end of the first quarter of the year, I want to take a moment of reflection and growth... As many of you may already know this, but on January
18, 2012 I lost my older brother Xavier McNish, to heartfailure. He was only 34 years old. And he left behind his only daughter that is 13 yearsold. This has been a real hard time for me and my family. Everyone says that peopledeal with death in different ways, and I must say I felt like I was going crazy. Starting myNew Year off with so much hurt and pain, is nothing easy to deal with.I am a firm believer in God and He has carried me through this storm like a butterfly. Iam so grateful for His grace and mercy. I truly appreciate my true friends and family, thatprayed for me, and my strength. I am a true believer in God and Family First andeverything else comes later.Out of all of that I Thank God that I was able to turn things around, and with mybrothers strenght in me I am such a stronger woman. I truly believe anything is possibleonly if you BELEIVE!Image Consulting & Designs by Amy has been growing and taking on new foundheights. The blessing are just pouring in! As you will read below, for the month of Marchwe have just progressed so much, it is hard to keep up. So Exciting!I have added three new members to the team, Malcom Barrnett, is my Assistant, DianePringle, Lead Fashion Intern, and Candance Woods, Image Consulting Intern. My teamis AMAZING! They work hard to ensure that my name is represented very well! I trulyappreciate them. If you see them with me out and about, make sure you say Hello!One thing I have learned about life, when add new people to your team you have to letsome people go! Some clients are NOT for you so you have to LET THEM GO! Somepartners are NOT for you, so you have to LET THEM GO! God will bless you with 10more NEW ones, trust me I am a living testimony! I had too many "Constituents, andComrades" in my life! But its okay because I am truly BLESSED with "Confidants"...So, I leave you with this encouraging statement from TD Jakes:" 3 basic types of people that you will interact with if you are a child of destiny! Becareful who you share your dream with"...1) Confidants. You have very few of them. They are for you. They are in for the longhaul. You will never inherit your kingdom until you have a confidant. They will confrontyou. If you have two or three of these relationships in your life you are a blessedperson.2) Constituents. They are for what you are for. As long as you are for what they are forthey will walk and labor with you ... but they are not for you ... but what you are for. Youcould mistake your constituents for your confidants.3) Comrades. They are against what you are against. They will team up with you to helpfight a greater enemy. They will only be with you until the victory is accomplished.PLEASE CHECK OUT THIS VIDEO CLIP: 3 Types Of People In Your Life - T.D.
