Kendra Tillman wants you to know you are stronger than you think. Yes you mama, with the work to be done at home and in the office. With dinner to be made and bills to be paid. She sees women doing the calling God has put in front of them and she is their cheerleader.
A mom of three herself, Kendra recently took a huge leap and quit her full-time job to pursue her dream of being a full-time entrepreneur. She made this move before it made sense on paper. But her husband was supportive and the change hasn’t looked exactly as she thought it would, but that’s what a step of faith is, one where the results aren’t guaranteed.
In this episode we hear some about this recent decision, her annual event she puts on for women and teen girls in the Phoenix area titled, you guessed it, You Are Stronger Than You Think, and starting a local chapter of Black Girls Run. In our discussion on StrengthsFinder as a tool to know yourself and others better, we discover that all three of us, Krista, Alex and Kendra, share a top strength: Belief. Which explains a lot about Kendra’s decision to take a risk in order to live as she believes God is calling her.
A woman of courage and tenacity you won’t want to miss this episode with Kendra Tillman.

[…] About 5 months ago I received an invitation to be apart of a year long mastermind experience, The Open Door Sisterhood. Part of the experience involved attending an in person 4 day long retreat. The retreat was a few weeks ago. Because of the small group setting, I was able to connect heart to heart with some amazing women. God affirmed my vision and purpose through this experience. I walked away from that 4 days with greater clarity and more energy to move forward. That retreat experience deserves it’s own post. I will go into more detail about my big takeaways from the weekend in a later post. For now… listen to my conversation with Krista + Alex, the founders of the Open Door Sisterhood. It was recorded prior to our retreat for The Open Door Sisterhood Podcast. […]
