This is a site designed to provide information on a plethora of topics from health and wellness, to diet and exercise, fashion and fun, empowerment and entrepreneurship!  It is also intended to serve as a Go-to-Guide for brilliant women in business to find listings for consulting and services in various industries.  Being a woman requires a great deal of strength, poise, patience, delicacy, and confidence.  There is enough pressure with all of society's unrealistic "ideal" images portrayed on the many forms of broadcast and social media without having to worry about competing with another woman for the right to be a boss.  More than being a boss, we want to be fabulous and fierce, but also worthy and respected.  Brilliant Girls Link Up seeks to inspire women of all ages and races to first understand the power of knowing and loving yourself, and then understand the power of embracing ALL that it means to have been created a WOMAN.  We are all here for a purpose, and to figure out what your purpose is - you must first know who you are.  There is power in collaboration, and Brilliant Girls Link Up equips women of many backgrounds with the tools and insight to collaborate with like-minded women and to uplift and be uplifted by those who share so many common interests, cares, challenges, insecurities, and passions.  It takes work when you are striving to become the best version of yourself, but we must all become our best selves in order to see our best future!  We have daughters, sons, sisters, brothers, nieces, nephews, and so many others looking to us to lead - now is the time.  Lets lead with love, uplift with inspiration and encouragement, and prosper through the power of collaboration.... all we have to do is Link Up!

Brains Behind the Business...

      Born and raised in Charlotte, North Carolina - I had a strong foundation in my parents.  Loved, Raised and Guided by a God-fearing, Praying Mother and an UnApologetically Black and Proud Preacher for a Father... Sister to a Fierce and Fabulous Sister and an Intelligent and candidly Cool Brother.... and Loyal Friend/Family to some Really Dope Friends/Family - so I got the Best of Everything in Me... and Real Love all around Me.  Proud to be a tenacious South Carolina State University Bulldog (of which I was only made aware of through my participation while a student at West Charlotte High School in the Campus Connections Program founded in Charlotte, NC... special thanks to the Baucoms !).  I finished with my Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry with a minor in Biology  and then worked multiple jobs while earning a Masters in Health Administration.

      Brilliant Girls Link Up is sharing information on women's health, professional prowess; along with tips for women and young girls trying to find their way and make their mark on the world.  Letting you know what's happening in music, fashion, or in the community.  I hope people are also able to use this page to reach out to people in industries of interest to them whether it is for services or networking.

        So much of Who I Am is Attributed to the Faith I Have and the Hard Work I put In....  My Hope is that the Links here Lead Others to Happiness, Better Health, Fun Fashions, Cool Music, Bubbling Business and Back to the Page Time and Time Again!  Enjoy Brilliant Girls Link Up...!!!!!!!
