When you love what you do, you’re destined to reach your highest potential — and help others achieve the same. No one knows this more than Monica Johnson. She has many passions, but the one she feels most strongly about is empowering people, particularly women and young girls. She says it is her life’s purpose, and it is what makes her sparkle and shine.
“Every woman and girl has the potential to be great in everything she sets her mind to accomplish,” Monica says, “To do this, you just have to be SMART.”
Monica has developed her own definition of SMART:
SMART has actually been in her heart for years, because she has always wanted to inspire others and be an agent of change. She sincerely believes every woman and girl has the power to be SMART, and her mission is to help bring it out.
More women and girls than ever are struggling to be perfect daughters, mothers, wives and friends. Little do they know they already have it in them to be the best, to find their life’s purpose and still be themselves. Monica knows from her own experiences that being the best means being authentic, and that every problem provides an opportunity to sparkle and shine after the dust settles.
Monica uses her engaging personality, her contagious energy and her experiences as a professional and personal coach to spur people to action, conquer their problems, pursue their dreams, and find their own sparkle and shine. She speaks the truth in love without holding anything back. And she empowers others — especially women and girls— to search within and reach their highest potential, both personally and professionally. After a session with Monica, they leave motivated and inspired to be engaged, enlightened, empowered and SMART!
