This week I had a ball interviewing my guest, Lorna Reid. Lorna is an amazing woman with an invigorating passion for life that began when she was a little girl. In this interview, Lorna shares her perspective as an African-American woman with over 30 years of experience as an Information Technology professional in corporate America. We talk about the movie, Hidden Figures, the struggles she’s faced as a single teen mom while pursuing a higher education, climbing the corporate ladder and what inspired her to start a side business.
Lorna is honest about her life experiences, lessons learned and how all of this helped her become the vibrant woman she is today. She shares how she manages to “work hard and play hard” with a busy lifestyle as well as her plans to grow her side business.
If you’re looking for a book to help you with forgiveness and growth in other areas of your life, Lorna suggests that you read Iyanla Vanzant’s book, Tapping the Power Within: Introduction to Self-Empowerment for Black Women.
As we closed our conversation, Lorna shared three of her daily affirmations as her parting words of wisdom:
- I choose to be happy because it’s good for my health.
- I am at home in my body; all is well.
- Life supports me in every possible way.
