How We Met
When Shani Curry- St. Vil took the stage, I abducted my neighbor's pen and I pulled my notebook in close.
With every bullet point, I attempted to capture the words that escaped her mouth.
*waves hand from back pew*
I know that's right.
Shani took me to church!
While I was surrounded by dozens of women, it felt as if she was speaking directly to me. Her wisdom reverberated so loudly inside my ears that it pierced straight through my heart. I was convicted.
My relationship with money is a game I can't seem to win, but Shani has the cheat codes.
We first met at Tips and Tea: a conference for women in business. We were two of three featured speakers for the event and the only two to show up. It was fate.
When she walked into the room, all eyes wandered her way. That must be Shani.
"Wow! Honey is beat,OK!" I whispered to my friends.
She wore a beautiful white dress. The vintage ensemble hugged every curve and her hair was whipped at just the right point. Honey looked regal. Her makeup was just the icing on a well stacked cake.

Shani, you are too dope for words.
