What made you want to become an entrepreneur?

My pain became my passion, I love coaching and mentoring leaders & wives.

What has been your greatest challenge as an entrepreneur?

Separating the ministry from the market place.

What would the Deidra of today tell the 21-year-old Deidra?

Get that education without breaks, stay fit and keep your circle small.

What direction do you feel that we as women in business can do to continue to trailblaze for the next generation of women in business?

Establish an authentic relationship with the Lord, meditation, self-care, continue to create ONE OF A KIND ideas, quality time with the people you love, transparency and positive conversations with likeminded people and become a mentor.

What final words do you want to share?

“Marriage is a good idea because it’s God’s idea!” – The late Dr. Myles Munroe – Our Marriage Ministry Mentor

Our motto is: “No Marriage / Wife Left Behind!”

The Lord told me to birth TrulyWed Wives with just me, then I added one wife and then 10 more. We worked on ourselves as wives through team building, obtaining coaching and mentoring certifications, Date Night Program, Wives on Fire Dialogue, etc. The Lord told me to open it up to Wives across the globe and internationally, I’ve created a soft launch for the TrulyWed Wives Ambassador Program which will actually launch this fall. Through my Signature Wife Coach Program, WifeStyle Mentoring Program and the Balancing Marriage and Business as a Wifeprenuer MasterClass, we offer something for the everyday wife.

Minister Deidra is an author of a book she compiled with over 50 other wives titled “Wives on Fire!”

She is a contributing author for Black CEO, featuring an anthropology book titled Black Woman by Birth Champion by Choice.
