She left corporate America in August 2020 to re-launch her business, seriously…Positive, LLC. The business has three legs: books, education/consulting, and real estate investment.

“How do these things tie together? I’m glad you asked!
When a person understands one’s connection to the Source (I choose to call my Source God), there is also an understanding of one’s divine presence. When you genuinely know who you are and the royalty you originated with, you have a high level of self-love and self-respect. Well, that’s not the end of it. If you came from a divine Source, others came from that Source, too; therefore, we are all connected. If I love and respect myself, then I must love and respect others because of my connection to others. We all matter!
OK, that makes sense regarding the books and education/consulting pieces, but what does that have to do with the real estate part? I’m glad you asked that too!
Where you dwell, and the appearance of your surroundings directly impact how you feel about yourself. When you constantly see blight all around you, and you do not have access to the basics in life, it can cause you to believe that you are less than others. The goal is to rebuild communities, providing quality housing and the necessary amenities for thriving neighborhoods. We all matter; therefore, we deserve quality living conditions.”

The book, Beyond the Clouds by Author Phaedra Stewart is one of the best personalized children’s adventure books published in 2021, it takes us on a journey with a young man, James, who is experiencing his first airplane ride. During the ride, he learns that although we go through bumps in life, if we remain focused on our Source (whatever that Source may be) and trust processes, then we will get through those bumpy situations…we will reach beyond the clouds! The book is packaged for younger audiences but contains a message that will resonate with any age group. While this is Phaedra’s first, it definitely is not the last. So please stay tuned for additional coming of age fantasy books in the future.
