🔺"It's not about me. It was the people connected to me. So, I always had to show up with excellence. I always had to pull up my bootstraps and my faith and say, ok, you had your pity party. Get up. Brush your hair. Wipe your eyes. And, go."
🔺"What is it that you desire? We gotta know what we desire. I knew I desired to be great. I knew I desired to own my own business. I knew I desired to be a millionaire. These are the things that I desired. I just didn't know how to do it. I don't want to work an average job. I don't want to just barely get by. I don't want to just make pennies. That's not me. That's not my life, Lord. What must I do?"
🔺"God is not going to come down and give you what you need. He is always going to send people. Connect with the right people and do not miss your opportunity."
🔺"Pride gets in the way. I was all pride out. I was all cried out. I was broken. I need what it is that you have. I want to know what you did to get to where you are. Can you help me? I need what you have!"
🔺 "I knew I wanted to be successful. I knew that if they could show me or give me the path to get started, that I could make it happen."
🔺 “The hardest thing in my life was not being able to feed my children. And one of the most scariest times of my life because I faced that more than once. And I would always say to myself that one day, it won't be like this.”
🔺 "If you do the work and connect and collaborate with people, your life will change."
🔺 “We are so afraid to share where we are. I had to be brave enough to say to myself that you are not alone. When the repo man came to pick up your car. Be brave to tell someone that you need help.”
🔺 “So many women around the world are working. So many women don’t believe. So many women don’t have the courage that they need to go out and crush it. But, they have it but they don’t know they have it.”
🔺 "My belief muscle is so strong, I could literally knock down the wall."
🔺 “The person in the mirror is the person that stops you from anything that you want to become.”
🔺 “Will they overtake you or will you overtake the problem? I got knocked down plenty of times. I'm knocked down know. But I get up. I show up. And I serve.”
🔺 “It’s amazing how a tube of lipstick can literally impact the lives of women.”
Denise Wiggins is a CEO. She has started and continues to run multiple multi-million dollar businesses including Einnaf Cosmetics, a global company that empowers women with great products, but also supports an ambassador program for any woman to drive her own business. Einnaf is Denise’s grandmother’s name - Fannie - spelled backward, and it’s not the only place Denise draws inspiration. All of her organizations put community - and community building at their center, in large part, because of the lessons Denise learned from her grandmother, lessons that helped Denise pull herself out of an abusive marriage, out of homelessness with three kids, and smack dab into a life she knew she was made for. With a belief in herself so strong you will feel it beating in your own chest, and a path to success that was forged in the face of fear, pressure and adversity, Denise will tell you how she did it. How she believed. How she planned. How she surrendered. How she got up. How she gave back. How she is ready, especially now, for the hard stuff that inevitably comes.
Denise Wiggins is more than just your average businesswoman: she is a certified life coach, professional speaker, author, and CEO of multiple seven figure businesses: and she has accomplished it outside of the traditional college success track. Exploding with talent beyond the walls of academia, Denise Wiggins uses her compassion, motivating personality, common sense and keen business building skills to develop enterprises and movements that embody sustainability and endurance. Over the past decade alone, Denise has built 3 mental health companies from inception to operation, launched a cosmetic line, and founded a non-profit organization — entities flourishing with new age tools to employ , empower, and educate others.
