All this week we will be introducing you to amazing real women who have decided to Be Brave in their lives, community & careers.
Meet Yvetta Thompson
Yvetta would you give me 4 lines that tell who you are :
Yvetta Gayle-Thompson, a woman that loves the Lord, wife, mother, grandmother. I enjoy researching and sharing information to help others grow or move forward in their lives.
Tell us about your business or career:
CEO and Founder, Youthful Resources, Inc. A non-profit organization geared toward providing youth with tools and resources to help the become productive in society.
CEO, Youth Resource Coalition..7 ways to raise poised, productive, and profitable youth as they prepare for college acc adult life.
Would you give us 3 lines of brave triumph that you have experienced, overcome and encountered personally :
Being a wife and mother at age 18, there were so many things I did not know and I missed out on opportunities to prepare our children with tools and resources toward a smoother transition into adulthood. I thought I failed them.
We've learned along the way and we continue to work toward open communication and setting goals that help set our grandchildren up for success. Our children are grateful.
We've taken this to the next level by reaching out to parents and children to share available resources and teachings, through our organizations.
1 quote that you believe will encourage other women:
BELIEVE TO ACHIEVE is my motto..
My passion in life is to enjoy all of life's opportunities while sharing HOPE with others to be able to do the same. This encouraged me too.
Enjoy to the fullest!!
