I wake every day expecting to learn a new life lesson, to venture into a new or different experience. Some days I am pleasantly surprised. Other days I repeat angrily, sorrowfully to myself, “I am not prepared for this day! I wish I had known this 10 years ago, 5 years ago, a year ago, hell any day(s) ago… just before today.” Life never stops and the lessons won’t either. For the purpose of making your life a little easier this blog is filled with all the things that I know now that I wish I knew earlier in life. So… Take My Foolish Advice on life, college, parenting, family, finances, relationships, natural hair for eczema suffers, maneuvering in corporate arenas, professionalism, networking and much, much more. Let’s see if we can build our own village to make this thing called life a little less complex, shall we!
My name is Amy Walker; I am the author of the 2012 book series and blog “Take My Foolish Advice”. I was born to parents that emigrated from Kingston, Jamaica to Brooklyn, New York. I now reside in Florida, the sunshine state, with my 7-year-old son who is a freaking genius and plotting to take over the world. Right beside his mother!
