HUMBLE BEGINNINGS INTERVIEW Edward Anassah, Founder
Q. What were the biggest initial hurdles and how did you overcome them?
A. My biggest hurdle was being diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009. Professionally I would have to start over. I’m not the first person this has happened to, nor will I be the last. Taking the lessons learned, I built upon that knowledge and was able to grow even more.
This faith-based media professional, empowerment speaker, and pastoral counselor, helps others overcome unproductive mindsets and see new opportunities. Her personal mission – to “enlighten, inspire and empower you” – is the tagline of her national talk radio show.
Q “Enlighten, Inspire, and Empower You.” Explain. Gladly! I believe we all have been called to a purpose in life; something we must do that brings fuller meaning.
A: When we enlighten, we give someone greater knowledge and understanding about a subject or situation. When we inspire, we fill someone with the urge or ability to do or feel something, especially something creative. When we empower, we make someone stronger and more confident in life.
