The Heart of Appreciation, LLC


I had the chance to interview an inspiring Entrepreneur who is also one of my best friends. She established The Heart of Appreciation, LLC which is an organization with a goal “to help people of all ages and genders have a consistent healthy lifestyle mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually.” Antoinette “Toni” Jackson is a woman of many hats. She is a life coach, educator, fitness instructor, wardrobe consultant and a woman of GOD. Her faith illuminates and is the core of her drive and The Heart of Appreciation. Toni delivers to her clients and audiences daily devotionals and empowering videos that remind you of how important, loved and special YOU are no matter what others may think of you. The Heart of Appreciate, LLC is an organization that gives back to help enrich the community and help individuals to truly love themselves.



imageDCFEST was a fun event to attend. There were games, live music, drinks, a couple of food trucks and my favorite…Freebies! 🙂 There was also a competition for the Coolest Companies in the area.  It was geared towards professionals of the Washington DC area to loosen up and engage in activities and just have a good time!
