Meet Toni Ann Johnson
I met Toni Ann several years ago through Antioch University, Los Angeles's MFA program. Her talent as a writer, her striking beauty, her sense of humor, her infectious laugh,and her willingness to reach out and connect to others are all things I admire about her. She was one of the first people to jump on board in support of Compliment, and I am so grateful for that. Though we haven't seen each other face-to-face in a few years, Toni Ann's friendship is very special and I'm so happy to introduce her to you as the first woman I interviewed for my new Compliment Soul-Care Series. When you read her interview, below, I think you'll understand why she's the first! Thank you, Toni Ann, for being so sweet and for believing in changing the world for good.
YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL INSIDE AND OUT.

About the Compliment Soul-Care Series
Compliment's mission is to help women feel beautiful on the outside (with lovely, hand-crafted jewelry) AND on the inside (through words of affirmation.) We women have a tendency to compete, compare, and believe in scarcity (as in, "if you get yours, there's not enough for me." Think about it-- youth, slimness, money, men, success.)
We say that's BS. Instead, we want to work together and believe in abundance: that there is enough love and joy for all of us. How do we spread that? By loving others, of course.
But that's impossible if we are on empty.
That's where the Compliment Soul-Care Series comes in. Once a month you will receive in your email a little inspiration on how other women, just like you, who are doing wonderful things for this world, are taking care of their own souls.
The hope is that you might put some of these ideas into practice for yourself, that we all grow together, and that we experience the true joy by edifying and building up one another. Enjoy!
