Obstacles, entrepreneurship, mom life, human. These elements of one local businesswoman and author inspired a movement to help you see beauty from the inside out. Read on to see how she’s sharing the stories that helped her get to where she is today.
Life isn’t always an easy ride. There are trials, tribulations, and plenty of obstacles that we must overcome along the way.
To share the story of her life journey, Enjoli Gibbs of Chic Life wrote the book “Triggered.”
“‘Triggered’ is a self-help diary,” she explains. “It shares vignettes of my life’s experiences, how I overcame them; and gives readers journal space to allow them to overcome along with her.”
Gibbs says she was inspired to write “Triggered” in part because she wanted to share pieces of herself as she also grows her brand as an entrepreneur. “I’m also hoping that my experiences will help someone else, too,” she says.
Life itself is what has led Gibbs on the journey to writing “Triggered.”
“I experienced a few things in my single mom-young-clueless-adult life years,” says Gibbs. “I don’t believe God brought me through these experiences to be selfish with the info. The lessons I’ve learned along the way can help someone else who may find themselves in a position similar to what I went through.”
The journey of writing “Triggered” was a process Gibbs says she thoroughly enjoyed. She says her favorite part was naming the different phases of her life, including names such as “Bitter Betty” and “Worthless “Wendy.”
Gibbs says that when others read her book she hopes that they’ll take away at least a few nuggets of information and inspiration that will help them become the best versions of themselves. “The affirmations are and should be a part of how we speak to ourselves and others everyday,” she says.
And while “Triggered” was just a snippet of a few experiences that Gibbs has encountered throughout her life, she’s already in the process of writing another book. “I have a lot more to share with all of you,” she adds.
Currently, you can purchase her book on Amazon or on her website at www.getchiclife.com. “If you go to my website, you can purchase a special edition Triggered Affirmation Box,” she says. “It comes with a book, liquid lipstick color of your choice, and a compact mirror.”
