Work With Me

I am one girl with many hats, and I would be more than happy to wear one – or more – of these hats for you.


My most comfortable place is behind a microphone. Depending on how you look at it, this may also be referred to as being in front of a microphone. Either way, there will be a microphone, and I will be speaking directly into it. I can actually do this without a microphone, too. My expertise (in no particular order) are: Following your passion, Perseverance and resilience, Blogging and social media, Personal branding, African representation in the media, African and African American cultural tensions, Gender inequality in the African community, and Relationships.


I love working with brands that I love and respect, and I believe in building relationships that are mutually beneficial. Going to a conference and representing a brand that I love and respect and whose vision aligns with mine is not a feeling I can describe very easily. If you are interested in having me represent your brand at a conference/corporate event, please contact me. Send me almost anywhere, and I will go! I make a great social media correspondent, among other things.


I have hosted almost all kinds of events, from weddings to birthdays to baby and bridal showers, to church events, and to shows. I am yet to pastor a sermon or give a presidential speech. But if this is what you want me to do, I can probably do it. Very, very well.


I offer very attractive and affordable advertising options, and if your brand/message aligns with mine, I would be more than happy to work with you. Find out more about advertising.


I review books and products. However, because of my very busy schedule at this time, I am currently unable to accept any books, so a product would be a much more feasible item to review at this time. If you’re interested in having me review your product, please contact me.


Have a product/service to giveaway? Well, what are you waiting for??? Send it over! I would be happy to share it with my Sweet Potatoes. Products and services that I cannot giveaway include but are not limited to: gambling/virtual money or opportunities, toys of a sexual nature (like vibrators, dildos, etc), books or articles of media that promote lewd sexual acts, extremism, or terrorism, and books/media that speak derogatorily about God, women, and Africa. This list is by no means exhaustive.


This is a very new thing that I have started (April 2013), and so far, it’s been very rewarding. You send me an e-mail about whatever you need advice on, and I post it on my blog where I give my candid opinion on the issue and leave it open for other readers to voice their own opinions, too. Your name is completely left out (unless you state otherwise), and you’re simply referred to as “Reader” or “Sweet Potato” Check out some of my past Dear Vera posts. Also, please check out my disclosure page for my advice policies.

Thank you for reading! Please contact me if you have any questions.
