What do you do for a living?
I am the CEO of Regina Robinson Enterprises LLC
As a multi-award-winning international author and publisher, I am a Midwife for authors. I show women how to “Re-Shape their Story” into a Message to create a Movement that’s connected to their Mission allowing them to unapologetically Write Their Book, Speak on Stages and WOW the world with their Story! I inspire women to be unstoppable by empowering them to show up, own their greatness, and be unapologetic about who they are as they increase their credibility, visibility, and confidence as an author and speaker.
As an award winning international transformational speaker, my confidence, style, and message exemplify why I am a thought-leader for women who are determined to own their confidence. As an award-winning international transformational speaker, I spread my message worldwide by inspiring my audience through laughter and practical principles that empower women to take immediate action in their lives, businesses, and careers. My message is powerful and impactful; churches, women’s conferences, organizations, and corporations continue requesting me for Keynotes, Break-out Sessions, Panels, and workshops.
As Thee Inner Confidence Curator, I champion the women’s movement Unstoppable Woman #onthemove. A movement for women of faith who are ready to move from stagnant to unstoppable in their quest to fulfill their purpose in the marketplace. I am determined to redefine what it means to be an Unstoppable Woman of Faith. Through my books and messages I unapologetically empower, equip and motivate women to unlock their inner confidence, show up, own their greatness, and be unapologetic about who they are as women of God.
As an multi-award winning author, I realize that the power and impact from the stage is lost if the audience has nothing they can take with them. My books Fearlessly Strutting In Your Confidence and Unstoppable Woman Prayer – Praise – Purpose allows you through self-work, self-assessment, and commitment to become the best version of you. The books will ignite your fire to fall in love with who you are at your core and value yourself in spite of your faults, failures and disappointments.
I am the CEO of Suited 4 Success LLC. As America’s #1 College Admissions Advocatefor over fifteen years, I have been providing education, strategies, and accountability to empower high school and college students to connect their vision to a future plan of action that will make a global impact from an innovative perspective. I pride on providing my families with step-by-step guidance in identifying resources to choose the college that is the right fit socially, academically, and financially. For the last fifteen years, we have supported students in attending college without going into DEBT by helping them to earn over $25 million dollars in scholarships and grants.
Was there a career setback you faced which you later realized was an advantage?
Twelve years ago, starting out as a new entrepreneur, I didn’t have anyone to tell me it was not going to be easy. I quickly realized running a business-required resilience. There were times when I made money and there were times I didn’t make any money. I realized in order to grow I needed the support of coaches who created the blueprint for the road to success I desired to travel. I believe my success, as a coach is a result of my willingness to invest in my business and myself through mentorship and coaching.
I had to be willing to stay the course! My journey was not always easy; however, it was worth it once I crossed the finish line. I understood that every time I crossed the finish line it was the starting point of my next level. My business continues to celebrate full-time success twelve years later, because I understand that my success is not measured by what’s around me it’s a result of my willingness to do the work God has called me to do.
I encourage every entrepreneur to never stop being a life-long learner that is the true formula for success.
What dream did you have while growing up?
While I was dreaming of becoming a teacher, which by the way I fulfilled; God was dreaming bigger for me.
How do you get to prepare a content before presenting a speech?
When preparing to speak I take time to understand the expectations of the host. I pray seeking God’s direction and then I began writing my notes. Once I have completed my notes, I read them aloud. I make the necessary changes and continue reading my notes aloud several times before recording myself speaking my notes. I am a strong believer that preparation is key.
How do you separate your feelings and emotions from difficult decisions?
Idon’t allow fear to paralyze me. I don’tcompare the confidence of my decisions to the circumstances around me.
I surround myself with an inner circle of people who support me in making decisions that will propel me spiritually, mentally, physically, and emotionally.
Do you think Authors struggle to sell their books; if yes, what can be done?
Ways you can sell your books…
- Speaking Engagements
- Book Clubs
- Podcast Interviews
- Sell via your website
- Going live to discuss your book (CTA)
As an author your story is not for you but so that others can be inspired to live a life they have been waiting to discover.
What was your first win that made you confident that you were doing the right thing?
College Coach…As I reflect back on all the students, I have worked with over the last fifteen years to successfully navigate from high school to college I am amazed. To see each and every one of them go from being a student who is discovering themselves to becoming young adults thriving to make an impact in the world is truly fulfilling.
Thee Inner Confidence Curator…As I reflect back on all the women I have worked with over the last seven years, I am amazed. However, nothing tops the ten amazing women I had the opportunity to mentor in my Unstoppable Woman Mentor Program. As I worked to help them unveil the hidden connection between their mind, body, and spirit; they gained clarity to take their power into their next dimension. Knowing me a girl from Asbury Park, NJ who was once in the same space as them decided to stop hiding behind my bruises and instead allow them to become my power. I thank God every day that he decided to use me as His vessel to inspire women to become the Unstoppable Woman God has destined for them to be.
What do you like doing in your spare time?
I relax and unwind by crawling up on the couch with my pink blanket binge watching my favorite shows: Food Network, Chopped, HGTV, Flip That House, Bravo and Million Dollar Listing. I also, put on my favorite gospel music and sing along, and I watch sermons or motivational videos on YouTube. I love to sing. Now, I’m not saying that I am Patti Labelle; however, I love to sing gospel songs around the house, in the shower, and in the car.
Sometimes people feel that life is not worth living. Can you tell us how you feel about your own life?
“If you would have told me seven years ago, God was going to use me to share His goodness with women around the world, I would have said not me.”
I was determined as a woman to not allow my past insecurities, low self-esteem, toxic relationships and depression define my life. In my darkest moment, I allowed God to shine the light on me as I moved from a space of being broken to unbreakable. My transformation into the unstoppable woman, mother, businesswoman and leader I am today took confidence, belief, faith, dedication and spiritual growth. I am passionate about utilizing my experiences and influence to support every woman I encounter to become the ultimate version of themselves.
My life’s affirmation is Jeremiah 29:11…” For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
I am determined to redefine what it means to be an Unstoppable Woman of faith.
In what ways are people from your industry making a difference in the world?
I believe the willingness of women coaches to openly share their testimony allows other women to embrace that their journey won’t be perfect and will require sacrifices as they break the mold, raise the bar, and create their own rules.
In 2019, I launched the movement Unstoppable Woman on the move. The movement is a ministry for women of faith in the marketplace to unlock their gifts, embrace their calling and own their kingdom purpose. Since its conception the Unstoppable Woman movement has inspired and impacted the lives of women around the world to ignite healing, transformation and wholeness within.
When a woman discovers who she is in God, she is unstoppable!
