V Lynn Hawkinsy: Live Love By Design Complete Guest Profile
V. Lynn Hawkins, was born and raised in Baltimore, MD USA.
Lynn grew up with one Older brother and two younger sisters. Her Dad died from a massive heart attack when he was 29 years old. She was seven and it was a major blow to her family. Her Mom went on to raise her family as a single Mom and went on to become one of the 1st African American women to get ordained as a Presbyterian Minister. She was a Pastor and a teacher and a huge influence on who Lynn has become.
Growing up, Lynn didn’t see herself as a teacher, although she was a leader. She loved to sing, dance, paint, speak and have fun as the leader of the pack. Both her parents were teachers. Her Dad taught high school French and Spanish and was a concert violinist. He had earned a Masters of Arts from Johns Hopkins University by age 25 and had played Carnegie Hall with the Boston Philharmonic Symphony before he was 28. Her Mom taught middle school French and German and was an amazing host. Lynn remembers some amazing family gathering and times with her parents’ friends that were such fun.
Lynn started her career in the accounting field, then to financial services and insurance and then into commercial real estate lending. She loved the work in the real estate industry, mostly the years spent in her gifts as a leader, building high performance teams and inspiring others to see more in themselves to do more and be more of who they had the potential to become. Much of what she has done is part of the what she shares through her business coaching and crowdfunding consulting business now.
The legacy she is most proud to leave behind are the stories she has written and published in books. She became a published author in 2011 as a contributing author in a book titled “Women Entrepreneur Extraordinaire”. It was the beginning of her desire to write what she lived so she learned to tell stories, but she still was not as willing to share them for fear of judgment. So, she helped other women entrepreneurs to self-publish and that was fulfilling. One of her clients was 89 when she became a published author and she also taught her that it wasn’t about becoming #1 or a best-seller, although the last book she was a part of, became a best-seller. The client taught Lynn that it was the value in the stories and information you put into a book that you won’t know whose hands it might get into, and rather that it be available because you wrote it. Just write it and get the help to publish it. The richest place in the world is the graveyards because of all the amazing stories buried there. Lynn is a promoter of the value of your stories in a book, personal, teaching or business. Just write and publish it.
Lynn now lives in Atlanta, GA USA. Her kids were raised in the Atlanta area, although several years ago she moved to take a new job. She has lived a few great places in the US. Prior to moving back to Atlanta, she lived in northern California for 10 years, south of San Francisco and north of San Jose. It’s called the Bay Area of California. It was beautiful and some of the most memorable years of her life.
Lynn is single and happy and part of a newly formed family nucleus with her single daughter and her oldest grandson. Lynn had two children; a daughter and a son was the youngest. Her son had 2 Moms Lynn and her daughter even though she was only two years older.
In 2012, at age 33, her son was killed in a motorcycle accident. She has given herself permission to say it that way because she wants to express that she is at a loss due to one of the most dangerous activities out there, riding a motorcycle. Her prayer is that our kids be safe, even if they choose to ride motorcycles or drive fast cars. She loved fast cars. Still do and she loves watching motorcycles and seeing the Sunday afternoon groups of Harleys going up the highway. Even nervously watching the groups of youngsters on their Dukati’s and Sazuki’s speeding up the highway. She always say a prayer that no other Mom experience the loss of her child this way.
Her son was also an inspiration to here and she now use some of their stories to inspire others.
