Welcome to the October 2016 issue of Queen Size Magazine. Month after month I pray on what it is that I want to put out to my readers. So this month I would like to share something with you. Sometimes people feel like what they are doing is for all for nothing, and I often have to remind people of their WHY; why did you embark on your journey to begin with? Your WHY MUST be strong enough to get you through those days when you want to give up; this is what that we tell people all the time.


Today, this is something that I needed to preach to myself. Running a magazine on a monthly basis is HARD work, especially when you have a 9-5ish job, two kids, a mom to care for and a shitload of other responsibilities. For the most part I LOVE what I do. But then there are those days when it seems like everything begins to work against you.


At 7pm, the night before the magazine was scheduled to be released I looked it over and just was not happy with it. Instead of compromising my brand and lowering the standards I set for myself when it comes to the magazine, I started all over and worked all morning until I was happy.


The moral of this story is to never give up on what you love, or yourself.


I'd like to thank Gwen DeVoe for agreeing to grace our cover and share a little bit about who she is outside of Full Figured Fashion Week.


Thank you to all of my writers and photographers that stay devoted. And lastly, thank you to everyone that continues to support Queen Size Magazine.
