About Me

My name is Makasha Dorsey, hence the site name, MakashaDorsey.com. I am a wife, the mother of two boys, a writer, a communications consultant, and a Christian.

This is the place where I talk about life, lessons I’ve learned, or anything else that seems relevant to my readers. Occasionally, I will even answer questions submitted to me on my contact form. From time to time, I write book and product reviews. Sometimes the products are given to me, other times they are not—either way, I will always let you know if I was compensated in any way to post a product review.

Lastly, I am a Christian. My vision is to have my words, work, and thoughts inspire you to be better. I am not perfect, just a follower of Christ. If I happen to write something that uplifts you, please comment. If I offend you, I’d like to hear from you too.

Why A Woman In Progress?

My goal is to help women live authentic, joy-filled lives while fulfilling their purpose.

Success comes in many forms but is achieved by moving forward–through progression. A thriving life is one where a person not only wakes up on a daily basis but one where introspection and reflection occurs. After reflection you can refocus and re-imagine your next steps.

We want to help women reflect, refocus, re-imagine and place one foot in front of the other to move towards a greater sense of self awareness, better relationships and successful, purposeful living.

If you want those things too, join our newsletter for tips, tools and inspiration. We offer workshops, blogging tools/resources, and branding information as well as information you can use in your everyday life–parenting, marriage/relations, and business.
