Who is Cheryl Polote-Williamson?

Wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend. These are the most important relationships to me. After that, I’m a businesswoman, author, and global leader who wants to see people from the ties that bind them. I am a servant and giver, and I am always looking for ways to do both.

What advice would you give to your younger self? 

Protect your gift. Protect your purpose. Set up safeguards around all God has given you from well being to key relationships. Never give up no matter what, because you will be great and leave a lasting legacy in the earth.

How do you handle setbacks? 

Prayer, faithfulness to my assignment, never quitting, finding some way/somehow to give. I have given my way through the toughest of times. 

What is the one thing that you know for sure? 

God is real and He is able. I cannot be convinced otherwise. I also know that I know that affirmations work. Daily positive thoughts, words, and actions can and will change your life.

What can people expect from you in 2021?

Films, an increased business portfolio, heightened brand visibility, more opportunities to bring others along.
