Considering publishing your book?

You’ve finally completed your book. Congratulations! I know that process was long, tedious, and maybe a bit frustrating. But, you did it! Now what? Are you looking to publish your book? I hired a Book Coach when I completed mine because I had no idea where to begin. Yes, I reached out to our BFF Google to research but it still seemed daunting to me. Here’s one of the first pieces of advice she gave me. You ready? Decide what platform works best for you as far as publishing goes. Do you want a Traditional Publishing Company or do you want to Self-Publish? I personally chose to Self-Publish. But, I wanted to give you the rundown she gave me that helped me come to that decision. Click here to get the full 411 on Traditional Publishing vs Self-Publishing.

Tryals and Trybulations: Meet The Author A’Driana LaFaye

Thank you Zeta J! You’ve been amazing!

Earlier this year I had the chance of meeting A’Driana via social media. She later expressed interest in self-publishing a book. Later I became her book coach and here we are today. She is now a self-published author releasing her first book “Tryals and Trybulations” available on Amazon.

Get to know A’Driana LaFaye

Tell us a little bit about yourself and background.
Sure! My name is Teria Taylor, but my readers know me as A’Driana LaFaye. I’ve been an avid reader all my life. I believe that’s what sparked my interest to write!

A Healthier Me Update

Hi Guys! I don’t know if you recall my post from last month, but I wanted to provide you with an update. So, I am still going active with the fitness club I mentioned previously. Since I’ve started this club, I lost 6 pounds. After going on a 5-day cruise (and falling all the way off), I gained 3 pounds back but am back on the plan and already lost 2 pounds within 2 days. Lord, I thank you again for showing me where I’m supposed to be to get my temple back to where you want it to be! I can’t wait to go to the doctor soon so I can update on my A1C levels as well. Keep believing that you can do it! Once you SHOW UP, it will be done because God sees you’re putting in the work.


Many of you know my weight loss journey with my up and down weight and inconsistencies. Transparent moment: The Lord has been working on me and revealed to me that I need to be more consistent in my posts and get past my own insecurities so that I may be able to help someone else. So, here goes. Recently, I was having lunch with some close friends of mine, one of whom shared with me their weight loss journey. I became excited, not only because I could see a difference in their weight loss, but also because they were super excited about the Fitness Club they joined that got them to their results. I mentioned to my friend for her to pass their information along to me so I could check it out; which she did. Here’s how God works. I saw an infomercial on Instagram for another workout program and was like “yeah, I’m going to do that one” and paid for it the next day. The day after that, I was tagged in a Facebook post for this Fitness Club. The creator of the Club was Live just talking about why they started this ministry and what it means to them and all the members. I felt her speaking to me during that broadcast so I went right ahead and signed up for that Club and discontinued the other. When I tell you that God puts people in your life and in your path to elevate you! I have not lost an incredible amount of weight but it is manageable for a lifestyle change as well as weight loss that I know can be maintained to continue to drop. Lord, thank you for the people that you put in our circle to make us better and give us a testimony to give you the glory! Thanks for listening guys!


Recap: The Posh Girls Club Takeover #eCodeAtl At God Is Dope

Very inspiring! I hope to attend the next event!

img_4160-2It’s been a minute since I attended a women’s empowerment event. After being in the presence of some amazing women yesterday, I left with excitement. And woke up this morning ready to take my business and life to the next level.

The event was hosted by founder, Tori Torres of The Posh Girls Club.

#eCodeAtl was held at God Is Dope located in the heart of Downtown Atlanta from 12pm to 4pm. We enjoyed delicious bites from AppetizeAtl. The PGC socialites and diamonds flew in from Canada and Florida to name a few.

The speakers provided a wealth of information for us to utilize and apply to our business immediately.
