Aramide Fadiora is the guest in this episode of DOZ Show. She is a business woman, author and minister who has a passion for the empowerment of women, particularly women in business and ministry. She is the Founder of Ladies Driven by Purpose, a platform designed to encourage and build women spiritually and to challenge barriers in communities. As a young child she lost the use of her legs and was unable to attend school as a result. She thought she would never walk, never get an education, and never see her dreams materialise. But then one day, by a miracle, she was walking. And now she is walking in her ‘stilettos’. Listen to Aramide Fadiora, author of the book, Walking in My Stilettos: Finding Balance in Everyday Life, and be inspired to believe and walk powerfully in your purpose. Purpose is like shoes, unique to the owner.
DiAnne Malone is the guest in this episode of DOZ Show. She is a writer and founder of Who’s That Lady Blog. She is also a published author, college professor and administrator. DiAnne first fell in love with words at the age of three and became an avid reader from that point on. Writing for her came later and she published her first poem while in middle school. Writing what she terms bad poetry led her to dismiss writing by the time she got to college. But in graduate school, she picked up writing once again and by the time she had obtained her MFA in Creative Nonfiction, she had published a few pieces of nonfiction in literary journals across the United States. She has collaborated on several book projects including, 7 Women 7 Words: A Collection of Inspirational Essays. On this project, 7 women wrote personal essays on the words: HER, SHOES, IMAGE, ANGER, HIM, HELP, SEXY. DiAnne shares with us her exciting experiences of collaborating on this book project and others and being a college professor. Listen and be inspired to live a life full of meaning.
