Life Lessons:
Camesha Gosha


*Are you happy at the moment?

I am. I’m one of those people that always looks for the silver lining.

*If you could go back and say anything to your 16 year old self now -what would it be?

My 16 year old self was full of insecurities. Being a 6’1” girl who didn’t play sports- high school was tough! I would tell the 16 year old me to be fearless!

*What’s the most important thing you’ve learned this year?

This was my first year as a SAHM. My children are 5 and 2. Making the shift from corporate life to home life/entrepreneur was not easy. My kids are first and I wedge myself in where possible. I’ve learned better goal setting and focus.

*What do you most want to achieve in the next 12 months?

In the next year, I plan to continue my mission of motivating moms to go after their dreams, I’m going to push through with a few more of my own. I’m working on my second book. It’s a joint project with my mom. I’ll also be launching my first online course and I have two e-book’s on the to do list as well.

*What’s your secret to happiness?

My secret to happiness is really focusing on all things positive. I truly believe that what we focus on grows. When we focus on positive things, we’ll begin to see more positive things surround us.

*What’s one ritual/practice that keeps you grounded?

Outside of my faith, I’d say exercise keeps me grounded. I try my best to carve out time to take care of my body. Exercising helps me clear my mind and also provides a release.

*What’s your biggest regret?

My biggest regret is not being confident in myself sooner. I know I’ve missed out on things because of self doubt and believing what other people say rather than what I know to be true.

*What bad habit would you most like to change about yourself?

I really need to do better with getting rest. As a creative, I have a million thoughts going through my head at all times. This leads to late nights and one tired mama.

*Aside from motherhood/fatherhood and marriage what are you most proud of in your life?

My word for 2014 was BOLD. I am proud that I have lived up to that and put myself out there. As someone committed to motivating moms, the responses I get that tell me I’m doing what I set out to do make me proud.

*When were you happiest?

When I take care of me, I’m a better wife and mom. When everything falls in place, my whole family is happy and so am I.

*What ten words best describe you?

Positive, Creative, Optimistic, Affectionate, Friendly, Believer, Pop culture junkie, Music lover, Undercover fashionista, Emotional
