Introduce yourself! Please tell us about you and your life so we can get to know you better.

Growing up in Harvey, Illinois, was a blend of love, family, and spiritual values that shaped everything I am today. In our home, guided by two loving parents, five energetic brothers, and one dear sister, the essence of education was not just encouraged; it was revered as a pathway to enlightenment and empowerment. My early teachings laid the foundation for my lifelong journey of personal and spiritual growth.

I was drawn to exploring my personal and spiritual development from a young age. I was driven by a curiosity about the profound works of Jesus mentioned in the Bible. I vividly remember pondering how to manifest those miracles in my life. Believing in the Word of God was not just a passive acceptance for me—it was a conviction that I could manifest God's promises and unleash my full potential. This unwavering belief fueled my journey to develop an unshakable faith in myself and gave me a sense of empowerment, knowing that the power to succeed came from within. I began to teach myself how to harness my inner strength and rely on the power within to navigate life’s challenges and emerge victorious. 

My life took a beautiful turn when I met and married Reverend Terrence E. Trimuel, Sr. Our twenty-seven years together have been filled with love, growth, and shared dreams. We are blessed with two incredible adult children, Terrence Jr., and Tamera, who are a constant source of joy and inspiration. One of my greatest passions is speaking, reading, and writing. My husband and I co-authored a book called "Divorce Your Debt," which became an Amazon Best Seller in Christian Spiritual Growth. It became an unexpected success, resonating with readers seeking spiritual growth. The book reflects our shared commitment to helping others break free. It's a journey from bondage in Spiritual, Emotional, Lifestyle, and Financial Debt (S.E.L.F.) to a life of liberation and fulfillment.

But beyond our shared endeavors, my true calling emerged in empowering women to break free from their self-limitations. I naturally gravitated towards listening to their stories, understanding their internal struggles and the barriers that hold them back from embracing their true selves. I heeded God's call to minister to women and created a platform where women can cultivate a mindset of living undefeated in all areas of their lives. Through this platform, I have witnessed the incredible power of mindset shifts, guiding women to embrace their purpose, unleash their unique gifts, and make a lasting impact on the world. 

Living an undefeated and fulfilled life is not just about personal success; it's about guarding our minds against negative influences that threaten and hinder our personal and spiritual growth. Nurturing a mindset of resilience, faith, and purpose has allowed me to continuously reach, teach, and empower women to cultivate resilience, embrace challenges, learn from them, and emerge as undefeated champions in their pursuit of purpose and joy. This personal and shared empowerment journey shapes my life and purpose daily with a champion's spirit and trust in the power within me to overcome anything life throws my way.

What inspired you to become a Women Self-Empowerment Coach, and what is your business's primary focus or mission?

I am deeply rooted in my passion for empowering women, a journey that led me to become a Women's Self-Empowerment Coach. It all began with a burning desire to unlock the greatness within women, to transform how they perceive themselves and their potential. This passion ignited a quest for spiritual and divine knowledge, seeking new ways to connect with, teach, and empower women to tap into their inner strength and create transformative change.

My coaching centers around women who find themselves in a state of unfulfillment, stagnation, spiritually wounded, battling depression, feeling trapped, grieving losses, navigating divorce, or living a facade of having it all together while crumbling inside. These women yearn for more despite external success, craving for purpose, and personal fulfillment. They seek to forge a deep connection within themselves to manifest self-love and attract genuine love into their lives, but self-doubt and self-limitation hold them back. The heart of my coaching programs lies in guiding women on an introspective journey to tap into their inner wisdom. Together, we dive deep into discovering their true selves, unlocking their innate power, enabling them to transition from a place of emptiness to a life aligned with fulfillment and purpose. It's about helping them shed the masks they wear and shifting from seeking external validation to living authentically from within. These women carry an inner void, longing to feel worthy, complete, loved, and fulfilled, yet unsure of the path to achieve it. They learn to embrace their unique gifts unapologetically and live as an undefeated champion.

Through introspection and self-discovery, my coaching programs empower women to unravel their true selves, enabling them to live from within and cultivate a sense of wholeness. It's about helping them bridge the void within themselves and empowering them to stop seeking validation from external sources instead of finding validation and affirmation from within.

Can you tell me more about the products or services offered by your coaching business and how they aim to benefit your customers?

The coaching programs I created are a labor of love aimed at empowering women to take charge and master their mindset, leading them to a profound understanding of their true selves and unlocking their purpose. It's a journey that transforms their lives, guiding them to live authentically and in alignment with their higher calling. Through my coaching programs, women learn the art of self-love, self-identity, self-awareness, and self-acceptance to pave the way for them to manifest relationships that resonate with their beliefs, morals, and values. The core of my approach lies in helping them uncover the more profound truth of who they are and why they exist. They will discover their higher purpose and learn to live it every day. 

One of the benefits of my coaching is guiding women towards self-love. Cultivating self-love is a pivotal aspect of this transformation. As women embrace self-love, it becomes a natural state of being as they connect with their inner selves and align with their beliefs, morals, and values. This alignment extends to their relationships in all areas of life, allowing them to manifest connections that mirror their newfound sense of self-worth. Women can manifest their desired outcomes by shifting focus to their behavior and thought patterns. This belief stems from my journey to becoming “The Knockout Queen.”  After undergoing brain surgery and facing a challenging recovery, I found myself struggling with negative thoughts, behaviors, and emotions during my recovery. It was a challenging time that demanded a resilient internal system. I realized the importance of creating a daily practice that would anchor me in peace and keep stress at bay, which were crucial elements for my healing journey. “The Knockout Queen” within me emerged as I mastered the art of fighting through adversity with grace and strength. I created an inner peace enhancement system for women to navigate and combat negative thoughts, behaviors, and emotions. This experience fueled my passion to help women tap into their inner resilience for growth, healing, and manifesting their best lives.

This inner peace enhancement system became my lifeline, ensuring I stayed centered and focused on healing. Mastering one's mindset is about overcoming challenges and embracing inner peace, self-love, and a sense of purpose. Through my coaching and personal experiences, I have witnessed the transformative power of mindset mastery, empowering women to lead fulfilling lives and manifest their deepest desires.

How do you ensure that the content and resources provided align with your values and objectives?

The coaching programs I have developed are profoundly personal and created from my life experiences. I transformed my pain into a driving passion, developing programs designed to guide women through healing from trauma, grief, stress, and depression and breaking free from self-limiting beliefs. Every aspect of these programs is rooted in my journey of turning adversity into empowerment.

My journey, particularly during my recovery from a brain aneurysm, taught me invaluable lessons. I realized that sharing these dark moments could be a lifeline for someone else going through a similar struggle, a moment of deliverance and hope. It's about being transparent and vulnerable, showing that even in the darkest times, there is a path to healing and transformation. My recovery was a pivotal part of shaping these programs. I struggled with pain and battled with self-doubt. But through it all, I have learned invaluable lessons that I now share with others. It's about offering a beacon of light, hope and deliverance. 

I see myself as a living example of resilience, not because I am perfect, but because I have navigated through challenges and found ways to tap into my inner wisdom. Through my coaching, I empower women to do the same—to visualize the woman they were created to be and take tangible steps towards embodying that vision. It's about turning pain into purpose and guiding others towards their moments of empowerment and self-discovery. Through sharing my story and offering guidance, I aim to empower women to reclaim their lives, heal from within, and thrive in every aspect of their being.

In what ways do you engage with your audience and foster a sense of community on your platform?

I create powerful and engaging workshops where women can dive deep into applying my transformative techniques and tangible results. I guide women through powerful coach-to-fight techniques and equip them with tools to combat and liberate them from old self-sabotaging behaviors. These behaviors often keep them trapped in cycles of bondage, preventing them from fully thriving in life. Through these techniques, they transition from a place of limitation and struggle into a new version of themselves—healed, transformed, and ready to thrive. It's a journey of empowerment. It's not just about information; it's about transformation, and I am honored to be a part of that journey for each participant.


The workshops are dynamic and interactive, designed to evoke fundamental shifts in mindset, behavior, and perspective that pave the way for lasting transformation. The energy in these workshops is electric as women experience breakthroughs and shifts right before their eyes. It is gratifying to witness these transformations and to play a part in empowering women to step into their true potential. I guide participants through techniques that empower them to break free from patterns that no longer serve them, replacing them with habits and beliefs that support their growth and well-being. Seeing women step into their power, shed layers of doubt and fear, and embrace their true potential drives me to continue offering these impactful workshops. 

What are your plans for the future, and how do you envision continuing to grow and evolve your business to serve your audience better?

My vision for my coaching business extends beyond individual transformation. I aim to cultivate a kingdom network of women ambassadors—bold, courageous women empowered to guide and uplift others. These ambassadors are trailblazers committed and courageous in their healing journeys. They are passionate about empowering and leading other women to overcome past trauma, hurt, divorce, or any obstacle hindering their growth into the highest and best version of themselves, known as S.E.L.F.

I see this network as a kingdom of empowered women, each dedicated to becoming the highest and best version of themselves in the areas of Spiritual, Emotional, Lifestyle, and Financial (S.E.L.F.). They embody resilience, strength, and a deep understanding of their worth, which they are eager to share with others.

This network is a community of support and empowerment where women share their stories, struggles, and triumphs, knowing they are not alone on their journey. I believe incredible things happen when women unite with a shared purpose and determination. They inspire, encourage, and motivate each other to reach new heights and break through barriers that once seemed impossible. My coaching programs aim to foster this sense of sisterhood and empowerment. I create a safe space for vulnerability and growth where each ambassador is a beacon of hope and inspiration for others. My goal is to equip these ambassadors with the tools, mindset, and resilience to lead by example and make a meaningful impact in the lives of those they touch. Together, we are building a network of empowered women who are catalysts for positive change, healing, and transformation in themselves and others.

These ambassadors become beacons of light and hope, guiding fellow women through their transformations. They offer support, wisdom, and practical tools to navigate challenges and step into a life of fulfillment and purpose. It's about creating a ripple effect of empowerment and healing that extends beyond individual coaching sessions to where women uplift and inspire each other. It's about building a kingdom network where every woman is valued, heard, and empowered to live a life of purpose, fulfillment, and impact.

Tell us about a pivotal moment in your life that brought you to where you are today.

In 2019, I faced a pivotal moment in my life—I underwent brain surgery due to a brain aneurysm. Little did I know this experience would catalyze me to reshape my approach to healing and well-being. The journey of recovery taught me invaluable lessons, especially about the importance of managing stress and nurturing inner peace. This realization was deeply rooted in my personal experiences, having witnessed my mom's battle with cancer and her eventual passing, alongside the grief from losing my father and brother in the same year. It was during my recovery journey that I realized I needed a solid blueprint, a structured approach, to combat the shadows of depression and grief that had plagued me for years. Watching my mom battle and eventually succumb to cancer, followed by the loss of my father and brother within a year, left me struggling with grief and emotional turmoil. My doctor's words echoed: Stress was the enemy of healing! To heal, I could not afford to be stressed. He emphasized the importance of a stress-free environment for my healing. 

It was a wake-up call to prioritize and protect my mental and emotional well-being to navigate through my grief, depression, and pain with resilience and determination. 

I knew I had to create a blueprint, a roadmap to knock out depression and navigate through grief while safeguarding my health. That's when I embarked on creating what I now call my Inner Peace Enhancement System—a personalized process designed to tap into my inner healing empowerment resources and wisdom. This system became my lifeline. Every day, I centered myself in peace, empowering myself to rise above any negative feelings trying to overwhelm me. Meditation became my sanctuary, where I could connect deeply with myself and seek the knowledge necessary to restore my mental well-being and physical strength. Through this system, I discovered a profound sense of internal guidance and resilience—a roadmap to heal my trauma from within. It was not just about physical recovery but about reclaiming my inner peace and strength, allowing me to emerge from adversity more assertive and empowered than ever. It was a journey of self-discovery and empowerment, teaching me that true healing begins from the inside out. My Inner Peace Enhancement System not only helped me heal but also became the pathway to healing my trauma from within. It empowered me to reclaim my sense of peace, resilience, and inner strength, paving the way for my restoration and personal transformation. It is now the foundation for empowering others on their healing journeys.

What inspired you to focus on personal and spiritual development?

Before launching my Women’s Ministry, I observed a common trend among the women I ministered to and coached. They were excelling professionally but neglecting their personal growth and spiritual well-being. It struck me profoundly and sparked a deep desire within me to guide women toward overcoming the internal barriers that hindered their personal and spiritual growth. The women needed an empowering blueprint to unlock their true potential and tap into their inner healing empowerment resources so they could discover their inner power, embrace their true selves, navigate life's challenges with grace, and step into their full potential unapologetically. 


My calling is to guide them on their spiritual journey to discover the essential foundational pillars of holistic growth-self-identity, self-awareness, and self-acceptance. By nurturing their spiritual development, women can realign with their inner compass; this plays a pivotal role in the process. This alignment unlocks a deeper understanding of their purpose, unique gifts, and innate power of wisdom, fostering resilience and a deeper sense of fulfillment. 

Through my ministry, I aim to create a nurturing space where women can explore their spiritual journey, connect with their inner selves, and cultivate a sense of empowerment and purpose. It's about guiding them towards a holistic transformation encompassing personal and spiritual growth, empowering them to live authentically and thrive in all aspects of their lives. It’s about empowering them to step into their full potential, guided by a strong sense of purpose and spiritual connection. This passion drives my Women’s Ministry, guiding women on a transformative journey of self-discovery, empowerment, and spiritual awakening.

What kind of audience do you target your business towards?

I focus on the woman stuck in a rut, watching life drift by without making strides forward, or that she is carrying too much grief or failure, overlooked and unappreciated, and the young teen seeking guidance and validation.

My life’s thesis is simple yet powerful: “I build up and never tear down.” It is a mantra that guides everything I do, reminding me that every interaction should leave someone feeling more robust, empowered, and valued. The women I work with often feel a void, unworthiness, and a longing to feel complete and loved. They learn to fill that void with self-worth, fulfillment, and self-love through coaching. It's a journey of transformation where they embrace their worthiness, live unapologetically, and share their unique gifts with the world.

I firmly believe every woman carries a radiant light within, waiting to be ignited. This belief fuels my passion for empowering, uplifting, and guiding women toward discovering and embracing their innate brilliance. Whether she is in her golden years or just starting her journey, there's immense potential waiting to be unlocked. I aim to empower women of all ages and backgrounds, reminding them of their worth, strength, and potential to make a meaningful impact in the world. 

It is my mission to help them recognize this brilliance within themselves, to inspire and guide them toward unlocking their full potential. Whether through coaching, mentoring, or simply offering a listening ear, I am dedicated to empowering women to rise above their challenges, reclaim their confidence, and step into a brighter, more fulfilling future. Everyone deserves to feel valued, appreciated, and empowered, and I am committed to being a beacon of support and encouragement along their journey.

As a Women's Self-Empowerment Coach, what advice do you have for individuals seeking to embark on a journey of self-discovery and personal growth, primarily through your programs and workshops?

Do not shy away from the unknown; embrace where courage and growth reside. Take a journey deep into your soul to uncover the layers of your identity—the positives, negatives, patterns, behaviors, morals, values, likes, and dislikes. Ask yourself the tough "Whys" and be open to the answers that can transform your life's path. Believe that within you lies an undiscovered greatness waiting to be revealed.

My mission is to empower women to rise and fight through their internal barriers, setbacks, and limiting beliefs. It's a journey of discovering their God-given purpose and gifts, empowering them to make a meaningful impact on the world.

It's about igniting the fighting spirit within them so they can discover their divine purpose and make a lasting impact on the world. I want women to understand that the real battle lies within—against S.E.L.F. Yet, once they conquer these internal barriers, they will emerge victorious in every aspect of their lives.

In this fight for self-discovery and empowerment, we draw strength from Psalms 144:1: “God has prepared your hands for war, and your fingers for battle.” We are warriors equipped to protect and unleash our greatest asset—our unique gifts that can change the world. 

Remember, “Your Gift is Your Goldmine,” and it is through this fight that we unlock our goldmine. Fight for it, unleash it, and let it shine, transforming lives and leaving a lasting legacy. Let's embrace our gift and our potential to impact the world.

Book a discovery call today if you are ready to embark on a journey of mastering your mindset, self-discovery, and empowerment. Let’s journey together to break free from the strongholds preventing you from transforming your life.
