Priscilla Williams: Chasing Dreams, Inspiring Women
Hope for Women is excited to feature a few amazing women from The BOSS Network who are leaving their marks in tremendous ways and empowering women to be their best. This week, Hope caught up with Priscilla Williams, who shares how she uses her platform to help others pursue their dreams.HOPE: What is your profession?
Priscilla: I am registered nurse with a certified oncology background. I currently work for one of the largest pharmacies in the nation. I am also the founder of Priscilla Q. Williams, Inc., which is a health, wellness and empowerment company. I am an author, speaker and health expert.
I recently started a new group called Healthy Women Lead, which is geared toward women leaders who are ready to make health and fitness a priority. My goal is to develop women to become more confident, powerful and fit.
HOPE: What accomplishments have you made during your time in this field?
Priscilla: I have had the honor and privilege to be able to speak on many of stages and host my own radio show, “The Priscilla Williams Show.” I have been featured in both local and national publications, along with multiple television interviews. The most exciting thing I have been able to accomplish is helping women change their lives through my coaching programs and live events. I have hosted a number of women's conferences and leadership events to motivate women to the next levels in their lives.
HOPE: What is one of the most important keys to your success?
Priscilla: One of the most important keys to my success is allowing God to direct me and be in full control of my business.
HOPE: What are some of the obstacles and challenges you have faced? What helped you to overcome them?
Priscilla: One of the hardest challenges I've had to face was not showing my full potential because of what I thought others would say or think. This was a real struggle for me because I didn't think I had what it took to really be successful. This resulted in me undercharging, downplaying my accomplishments, playing small and dimming my light. I was able to overcome this obstacle by having a great support system, which includes my wonderful husband, who always believes in me. Whenever I think I can't do something, he tells me how great I am and tells me that I can do anything. The other part of that support system includes my coach, Monique Caradine. Monique has been a great mentor, leader and friend to me. She helps cultivate the vision for me and catapult me to the next level in my business and life.
HOPE: How would you encourage other women who are seeking to take the next step in their career endeavors?
Priscilla: I would encourage women to stay committed, no matter what—to keep the vision in front of them and never let the vision die, no matter how they feel. It is very important to keep the right people around you, those people who see the greatness in you and push you higher. Moving to the next level in your career requires that you perfect your craft. The success you want does not happen overnight. There are many times you will hear the answer, “No,” or spend many nights crying. The question is: How committed are you? You have to push past the doubt, disappointment and discouragement to get the life you have always dreamed of. It is so worth it. I promise!
