We had the good fortune of connecting with Miesha Weaver and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Miesha, do you have any habits that you feel contribute to your effectiveness?
I feel every vision starts in your mind and should be transferred on paper. One of my favorite scriptures is Habakkuk 2:2. Write the vision, and make it plain on tablets, that he who reads it may run.” When it is written down and then implemented, those we lead can ‘run’ with it and we will see it succeed. Once I wrote my vision down, I created a list of things I needed to do and gave myself a timeline to accomplish each one. Believe in yourself, take the necessary action, and work on it everyday! Treat your customers the same way you would want to be treated: be on time, be considerate, and smile!
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I released my first book Mother’s Day of 2020, it’s my story of how I became a single mother and chose to win with the hand that was dealt to me. Single mothers are often portrayed as stuggle stories, but I wanted to change the narrative and show others that single moms are educated, business owners, home owners, and raise their children to strive for the best life has to offer regardless of the circumstance. “If I had allowed my disappointments, delays, and disadvantages to take precedent over my destiny, desires and dreams, then I would have been defeated a long time ago. Never allow your present dilema to co-sign your future.” ~MW~
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I would take my best friend to The Woodlands, we could kayak along the waterway, eat at one of the many great restaurants, catch a concert at the Pavillion.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
This shoutout is dedicated to everyone who was counted out! I believe in you, hard times don’t last but tough people do. Don’t allow your current circumstance to determine your future. Secondly, my biggest motivators: my children. Thank you for pushing me to be a better woman each and everyday, for holding me accountable, cheering me on when I want to quit, and for picking me up when I fall.
