What is your favorite book today?

As a very spiritual woman, I must begin my day with reading my Holy Bible. It keeps my spirit uplifted and universe (mind) covered with God’s grace and mercy.

What are you reading right now?

I am reading a fellow indie author, Sheree Franklin, out of Chicago. She wrote a nonfiction book entitled, Intuition: The Hidden Asset Everyone Should Learn to Use. In the book, Franklin shares her personal journey and stories of others who are intuitively living their greater purpose in life.

When do you do most of your reading?

As an entrepreneur you are constantly moving. With that in mind, I do most of my reading on the weekends when I have some downtime.

Favorite place to read?

A five star adult-only resort in Mexico! It’s something about relaxing on the beach and the sound of the ocean that puts me in the right state of mind.

Favorite genre?

A: I really enjoy reading nonfiction (inspirational) books! I have reached a level in life where I am constantly looking for ways to feed and nurture my universe.

What would make you not finish a book?

A: Time. There is only so many hours in a day. However, I have learned we must make time for things we truly feel are essential to our growth in life.

Early in my youth, I knew that I wanted to attend Spelman College, the famed African American women’s institution in Atlanta. The women I’d read about there reminded me a lot of the woman I admired all my life, my mother. They had a powerful presence about them and were extremely intelligent. Though she was a single mother, my mother made sure I was able to attend this esteemed institution. She left her entire world in Chicago (including family and friends), to start a new life with me in Atlanta. I mean, my mother was my biggest cheerleader.

In order for me to live the best, she made weighty sacrifices—no matter how major they may have been—so much so that she depleted her entire retirement plan so that I could not only go to Spelman, but graduate. Losing her in recent years was like losing the air you breathe. My once vibrant world felt dark and depleted. For months, all I could do was cry my sadness away. It was too painful to realize she was no longer just a phone call away. My mother was truly my favorite girl and best friend. People who I didn’t even know, knew who I was and my story because she was that proud of me. The unconditional love she showered upon me daily is what keeps me going to this very moment.



Lifestyle specialist, Maisha Wynn, gives credence to the mantra "a changed mind is a made-up mind." She heads up Live To Wynn, a Chicago-based lifestyle agency that provides aspirational and practical guidance for women and men who desire to live their lives more abundantly. As a former size 20 who now maintains a size 4 through exercise and healthy eating, Wynn knows firsthand how difficult and rewarding it can be to transform your life. She speaks around the nation and provides uplifting editorial content to various media outlets.
