January 7, 2015 – How To Create An Effective Vision Board @motivationmama Denise J. Hart, the Revenue Reinvention Strategist, is the CEO of the Momentum Institute for Women. However, this wasn’t always the case. She used to be a quitter. She was unfocused, bitter, afraid and clueless. A “C” average high school student, she dropped out of college the first time she went and she didn’t return until she was 24 years old. She finally graduated from undergrad when she was 32 and she once considered suicide.
But, thank God her story doesn’t end there. She shifted from a welfare identity to a Worth and Wealth reality. She runs two successful heart-centered businesses. She thrives on helping women entrepreneurs create winning revenue strategies for more impact, more clients and a lot more money. She holds a Master’s Degree from Sarah Lawrence College and she’s a tenured professor at Howard University. Denise is thrilled to be living her life with purpose, passion and unlimited possibility! Her greatest joy is to serve others with the highest level of value as they transform their life and business. For more info, visit www.reinventionissexy.com
