Flawed and all, we think this chat with Mrs. Wilson might help you on your journey to finding the tools needed to accomplishing your personal goals and staying confident no matter what.
HSM: What was it like growing up in Houston?
Evelyn: I grew up in Hiarm Clark located in Southwest Houston. I was a different little girl, but, I always just dove for the top. I was always heavyset but that didn't stop my ambition to be active in music, being a singer and in the color guard. I went to Michael E. DeBakey High School for Health Professionals and furthered my education at Xavier University (Biology Major). My dad was a music minister, so the church has always been a part of my life. I attribute my spiritual foundation to knowing I can accomplish all things in my life through both good and bad that has taken me to where I am today.
HSM: When did your transformation begin?
Evelyn: My transformation started, really, when I went to Alcorn State University in Mississippi, but, before then it was triggered between middle school and high school. I felt like the transformation kept evolving. My dad decided to drive me down to Alcorn State where I was able to audition for the music program. People I didn’t know knew me. They saw me as a young lady just being myself. In 2005, I pledged Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated. I became a worship leader at a church in New Jersey where I taught choir for 10 years and had a non-profit organization called The Epic Movement Fine Arts where we held summer camps. Two years ago, I was in the midst of another transformation journey (365 Fit) mentally, spiritually and physically. It triggered what I’m doing now. I lost over 100 pounds.
HSM: What brought you to New York?
Evelyn: My husband got a new job there. So many things have happened since. I wrote a vision board in 2016 with New York on it and I had no idea this was gonna happen on it. That’s really what I’m all about now. Those dreams and gifts you have on your heart, if you are intentionally tapping into some of those things, they'll flourish.
HSM: What is the No Ceiling Network? What does it stands for?
It's about brand coaching and strategies for business owners. In March, I was actually laid off my job. I began to host “The God Moment” consulting at least once a week and then I gave birth to the “God Flow” where I ask clients questions like, "What do you want in your life right now?" It could be peace. "Why is this not happening?" It could be a relationship, their work, entrepreneurship, etc. It’s good to know your goal so you can work towards it. It's like troubleshooting for life.
HSM: Do you have any forthcoming projects you are working on for 2019?
Evelyn: On the music side, I have The Sunday Brunch Unplugged in Houston, TX on January 20, 2019 (every 3rd Sunday) and I'm hoping to branch the series to New York (in March). I'm also working on writing a devotional & journal. I also have a Facebook forum called The Break Out Sisterhood Group. For over 570 women, a group is a safe place filled with agape love, accountability, ladies who pray together, worship together, study God’s word together and break out of negative cycles together while replacing them with positive habits.
Catch Evelyn discuss the importance of understanding how healing is apart of the process and more at 'See. Plan Pray.'- Vision Board event.
Starting January 11, 2019, those who are ready for a breakthrough and to get aligned with their purpose can join Evelyn for 3 nights of coaching, an exclusive interactive group that fuels empowerment with others via Facebook, Godflow Calendar and a surprise gift.
