Looking back on moving to Seattle from the Philippines when she was only 7 years old, Wonderful Morrison says she is incredibly grateful for the way life's path was laid out for her. Her challenges sharpened her natural curiosity in getting to know people and their stories.
And her guiding star has always been her faith.
Today as a business strategist and leadership coach, LeadHer Academy founder & CEO Wonderful says divine intervention has lead her to where she is today.
"My current business actually found me, and it found me during a time that my family was hit with a painful betrayal," says Wonderful. "A trusted person, whom I loved very much, stole our family business during a difficult time. I was deeply wounded and had no plans of starting another business at all. But it came to me in the form of an email. A friend asked if I would mind a phone conversation or coffee date to pick my brain about her business."
This coffee date lit a spark within Wonderful to become a business strategist. She found that she loved talking about strategy and solutions. She loved the planning, goal setting and systemizing her business process. But nothing lit her up more than hearing about her friend's success when she implemented what they worked on together that day.
Wonderful found that her natural listening skills served her well when mixed with her years of knowledge, experience and expertise as a highly successful business owner. Since launching her business, she now uplifts female entrepreneurs around the world and leads an online community that continues to grow.
As she looks forward into 2022, some of her upcoming projects include a book on leadership for female entrepreneurs and a podcast to continue to grow her visibility.
"My biggest piece of advice is to seek mentorship from both those who have built a successful business and those who are successful in your industry," Wonderful says. "And never cease to invest in your personal growth."
All all the things Wonderful hopes to pass down through is her legacy is her bravery, mental toughness, grit, unconditional love and gratitude.
"There are many paths to success, but your character will prove to be the main ingredient in how you give and serve the world," she says. "I lead women entrepreneurs to their success by guiding them to step fully into their power and use their gifts and talents. The world will be transformed, simply because they showed up."
"Of all of Maja's beautiful necklaces (GOD, FAITH, HOPE, LIVE, KIND and HAPPY), the one that speaks to me the most is GOD," says Wonderful. "Because without Him, I am nothing."
