That Girl Was Me!
Convinced there was more meaning to life than her successful corporate career could offer, she took the plunge, jumped head first without a parachute, towards a life on her own terms -- only to find it was not quite what she expected. But on that journey, she found her Spark and hence, Spark Her Blaze was founded. This site is devoted to empowering women with the lessons she learned so that every woman can SPARK HER BLAZE!
That Girl WAS me, but no more! Through trial and much error, I developed a system that empowers you by adopting purposeful mindsets, purposeful priorities and purposeful pursuits.
This page is for women who may have lost her way in the busy of her life. She may not recognize the woman reflecting back at her in the mirror. She may feel unfulfilled in her role at home or at work. She knows there's more to life, but not sure how to get it.

* To Shift from a Busy Life to a Purposeful One

She has been a tremendous blessing to my life and I am so much better for knowing her."
"Najah is a powerful woman of faith I can always depend on for honest, thoughtful, unbiased feedback and support. She writes with a sense of grace that empowers people of all backgrounds.

She has a gift of seeing in others what they can’t always see in themselves. She holds me accountable to myself!"

You Are Seen! Accomplishment vs. Acknowledgment and Why Understanding the Difference Matters.
For many years I sought recognition for accomplishments that I had already cemented. I had already started the hard thing, pushed through the hard middle, and ran across the finish line, but no one was there at the end jumping up and down cheering for me.
