In over 100 episodes of Happy Black Woman Rosetta has never spoken with a guest about the topic she’s covering today: The power of a beautiful and peaceful home. Her guest today is Glenda Vance, a woman who has walked a very difficult journey of her own to come out on the other side with a dream and vision of helping women create their own beautiful peaceful place where they and their families can thrive. Join Rosetta for this great conversation to learn how you can create your own peaceful haven in your own home.
Your home can be a place of beauty and peace and solace for your family
Even if you don’t feel you are woman who is good at decorating or matching colors, Glenda Vance says you can learn how to make your home a peaceful place that invigorates and refreshes you and your family. In this conversation, Rosetta takes a deep dive into Glenda’s personal experience and asks her for very relevant and practical ways that black women today can transform their homes into the place of peace that they want and need them to be.
Decluttering is powerful. You can’t get organized without removing the things you don’t need
One of the very first steps Glenda Vance recommends for creating a beautiful and peaceful home is to declutter. She says that you can’t get organized and beautify your home until you remove the things that you don’t need, the things that no longer serve you. It’s a difficult process but one that is essential for the beautification of your living space. Find out how Glenda recommends you get started decluttering your own home, on this episode of Happy Black Woman.
Order is heaven’s first law. An orderly home allows us to live a more heavenly life
Somewhere in her past, Glenda Vance was told that order is Heaven’s first law. To her, that means living an orderly life is a reflection of how things are in heaven. The resulting beauty and harmony that comes from that kind of living it directly reflected in the decor and organization of the home. That idea was very curious for Rosetta so she asked many questions about how it is true and what it means for the way we decorate our homes. You’ll enjoy hearing Glenda’s answers on this episode.
Nothing will happen in your life if you don’t pursue something
Each episode, Rosetta asks her guests what they would recommend to a black woman who is just starting out on her entrepreneurial journey. When she asked her guest this week, Glenda Vance, Glenda said nothing will happen in your life if you don’t pursue something. For Glenda, it was the dream of having a business that is oriented around something she loves. And she wanted that business to truly be a help to other women. She has it now and is demonstrating that anyone can come back from even the hardest setbacks to handle if they’re willing to move forward. You’ll enjoy Glenda’s story, so be sure you listen.
