I am Shawntrell Hudson, an author, entrepreneur and business owner. I am 33-years-old, and a proud mother of 5 beautiful children. I was born and raised in Miami, Fl.
Even as a child, I knew that owning my own business was a goal. At the ripe age of 28, I had acquired a tax firm, Shawntrell’s Tax Services Inc. From there, I took to the necessary steps to securing a full-service daycare center that I am, currently the founder and CEO of. Little Starz Academy LLC derived from my passion I carried for young children and early childhood education.
In addition, I am also the founder of Sister2Sister Empowers, an organization where I work with women who have been victims of domestic violence or any abuse for that matter. I was inspired to start this organization because I found myself trapped in a abusive relationship at a point in my life. It wasn’t easy to go through it and make it out, but I’m thankful I did. I'm aware that every women isn’t so lucky or as brave as I was, which was the reason I decided to tell my story.
Succeeding Against All Odds

Losing her mother at an early age taught Skylar that nothing lasts forever, and to cherish those we love while we have the chance. In doing so, Skylar left herself open to be hurt. Longing to feel loved, she fell victim to failed relationship after failed relationship. Upon meeting Demarcus, she thought her love life had taken a turn for the better.
Demarcus was every woman’s dream. He was tall, dark, handsome, and wealthy. It was something about him that made the women go crazy, including Skylar.

Demarcus has a secret, and when it comes to light, it drives a wedge between the doting couple.
Still, Skylar fights to stand strong beside her man. But what happens when fighting is no longer enough? When the good no longer outweighs the bad, and the pain just becomes too much to handle? Skylar thought she could deal with the baggage that comes with loving a man like Demarcus, but after being pushed to her limit she is faced with the ultimate decision. They say love conquers all, and Skylar could feel it swallowing her whole. In the end Skylar must decide if love is really worth losing herself for.
