What REALLY happened with $200K surprise investment from Marcus Lemonis and Gayle King

What REALLY happened with $200K surprise investment from Marcus Lemonis and Gayle King

Hi there,  By now, you have probably heard that GaBBY received a $200,000 surprise investment from Gayle King and Marcus Lemonis during a 100 Percent podcast interview (click here to listen to the podcast if you haven't). We emailed you about this before it was shared in Black Enterprise, People Magazine and on so many other platforms. What you don't know is what REALLY happened that day. Right after the podcast was recorded, I recorded my very raw emotions just for my reflections later, but I feel led to share it here to encourage some of you dreamers and parents of dreamers. I pray it encourages you. Click here to watch my reaction.  ...

It's bigger than you Boo

It's bigger than you Boo

So I did a thing. A statewide thing. A few months ago, I was asked by a hospital to share my story of finding my BFF of 37 years and Gabby's godmother dead in her home due to COVID-19.I'm running a business with Gabby, managing my husband's comedy career, and working a full-time job while being a wife, mother, daughter, sister, auntie, etc. The LAST THING I wanted to do was be a vaccination spokesperson or poster child. But I couldn't continue to ignore the requests, especially if something I could say would prevent someone else from experiencing the pain...

How we spent my late BFF's birthday

How we spent my late BFF's birthday

You (and every member of the Confidence Family) are amazing, rozalynn. Your encouragement and prayers were greatly appreciated as we faced the first birthday of my best friend of 37 years, classmate, maid of honor and GaBBY and Michael's godmother without her physical presence. In case this is the first email you have read about Tameka, I found her dead in her home from COVID on January 7th and have been working to properly grieve and heal from the experience and share my journey. I mentioned that we may go to the spot we celebrated all her birthdays, Texas Roadhouse....

My BFF would be 44 Thursday

My BFF would be 44 Thursday

Real talk. I've been dreading this week. Thanks for all of your encouragement and prayers since I found my best friend of 37 years, classmate, maid of honor and GaBBY and Michael's godmother dead in her home from COVID January 7. Her completely unexpected death rocked us to the core, but we know it has been our faith and the support and love of family like you that has kept us. Every March 25 or within days following, the kids and I would take Godmommy Meka to Texas Roundhouse. It was our spot. It was loud and so were we! We'd stay for...

My hair fell out in elementary school

My hair fell out in elementary school

My jaw dropped typing that, but it's true. I was (and still am) obsessed with Michael Jackson and I thought getting a Jheri Curl in my shoulder length hair would make me look like his sister Janet. SMH...  Gabby got her gift for nagging honest. In her case, it led to us inventing GaBBY Bows. In my case, it led to me convincing my mom to chemically process my thick, beautiful and growing hair.  It wasn't long before clumps of hair were in my wide tooth comb and my hair couldn't stretch to the middle of my ear.  I was in the 4th grade...
