Staying in with Juanita Ingram

Welcome to Linda’s Book Bag, Juanita. Thank you for agreeing to stay in with me.

Tell me, which of your books have you brought along to share this evening and why have you chosen it?


Today I brought with me my new book that just came out on April 16th. Fabulous, Faithful and Free is a straight-talking book on how to continuously feel fabulous while staying within one’s financial means, living beyond the labels and limitations that hinder one’s progress, whilst truly investing in and being faithful to oneself in order to turn dreams into reality and to become both mentally and financially free.

(Fabulous, Faithful and Free sounds like a book we could all benefit from.)

What can we expect from an evening in with Fabulous, Faithful and Free?

I take readers on a journey and help them to living a Fabulous Faithful and Free life. I go in depth about the importance of self-worth, the power of the 3 “Ps” (Positivity, Preparation and Permission), what true beauty is (energy, balance, radiance and polish), and therefore the importance of loving one’s body regardless of size and self-perceived flaws. Furthermore, I provide sound financial wisdom as well as fashion advice and tools such as: style principles to develop your unique look, savvy shopping strategies and building blocks for a flexible wardrobe.   Consequently, this book will help readers to become their elegant and best-self, whilst encouraging readers to celebrate their uniqueness, through providing tools to enhance their mind-set and outward appearance. Most importantly, it will help them to live their best life by pushing past the limiting labels placed on them by society and being free to be all that they are purposed to be without apology. The very last chapter of the book is actually a workbook that helps bring everything, all of the strategies in the book, together and provides a practical application for all that is presented in the book.  There is something in this book for everyone, whether you are picking up the pieces of a broken life, or looking to add more to your list of accomplishments, now is the time to press the reset button, eliminate disruptions and distractions, and embrace being Fabulous Faithful and Free.

(What a wonderful approach Juanita. I think your book sounds inspiring.)

I truly desire for readers to experience life to the fullest, because I know that it is possible. I want readers to live their dreams rather than just dream. I reaped the rewards of hard work, determination and self-discipline, and now I want to pass the baton on to others In this book readers will learn how to:

  • Prepare for destiny
  • Let go of past mistakes
  • Become financially stable
  • Look like a million pounds
  • Celebrate your uniqueness
  • And much more

(I have a feeling many Linda’s Book Bag readers will be very interested in your ideas.)

What else have you brought along and why did you bring it?

I brought along with me my crown and sash from the time that I competed and won the title of Ms. World International! It is a reminder for me to never second guess yourself and to never place limits on what you can achieve.

(My goodness. How exciting!)

I’ve competed and won many titles, in fact, Madame Noir acknowledged me as one of the Top 7 Black Women in Pageantry to turn Beauty into Business along with Halle Berry, Oprah Winfrey, and Vanessa Williams. I brought it to remind myself and others that it is okay to be more than just one thing in life. I wear many hats, Attorney, Author, Actress. I want others to know that if you take the limits off, you can give yourself permission to excel in all the areas of life that you are gifted in.

That’s fabulous advice. Thank you so much for staying in with me to tell me about Fabulous, Faithful and Free. You’ve been a true inspiration.
