Today, we have the pleasure of interviewing Shareka Martin, a single mother of three beautiful children, author of Five books. She enjoys her life in balance, harmony, and preaches it too.
While she is an Entrepreneur, she finds time to pursue her ambition, writing. She has recently released her latest book, “I forgive her” a memoir that tackles our society's grim reality.
How did you get into what you do right now?
Life experiences led me to where I am now.
Who are your role models?
Some of my role models are Maya Angelou and Harriet Tubman. These women show such strength and support others joining them.
Please tell us about your book.
My latest book, a memoir titled “I forgive her” tackles the stigma of society, domestic violence, that I decided to lay it out in bare for people to read and understand.
What's your most memorable experience?
I had 3, giving birth to my children.
Which social media channels work best for promoting your work?
I have just started utilizing social media channels for marketing purposes.
What's your greatest fear?
I try not to focus on fear, but I will share that my biggest fear is dying before I find and share my purpose!
Looking back, what's one thing you wish you understood better before you ever got started?
When looking back, hope is one of the main things I wish I understood how it works. I say that because somethings you can hope for, but that doesn't mean that it will change, so you need to let go!
What keeps you going when things get tough?
I press forward because I don't know how to stop, I tried giving up, just doesn't work, my kids being understanding of my journey and willing to walk it down with me without giving me resistance helps and definitely my spiritual walk, to focus on my blessings and meditation to quiet my busy mind.
Any message for our readers.
My message to the readers would be to love yourself first; self-care is so important. If you don't do this, you won't be any good for anyone else! You matter!! You are stronger than you think:)
