Who I Am?
What’s going on family? What have yall been up to? I was going through all the blogs I have written thus far and I realized that I never fully introduced myself. So, today I thought I would share
Who I Am?
My name is Shawne Perryman, I’m a woman first, single mother of one amazing son, sister to 6 wonderful women and 3 handsome men, the niece of two amazing aunts who are like mothers and the granddaughter of my beloved grandparents affectionally know as Nanny and Pop.
Now that you know a little family background let’s talk about entreprenuership and why it defines
Who I am?
My goals, dreams and desires has always been to quit my 9-5 and become the boss of my life, to have spiritual and financial freedom, time with my son and family and to travel the world on my own terms. This is who I am.
Now I’m gonna let you in on a few things that I enjoy and that makes me happy.
- Hanging out with friends and family
- Going to the movies
- Going to church
- Watching Tv
- Crossword puzzles
- Latch Hooking
- And my all time favorite TRAVELING.
I have to say that I don’t like to travel, I have a love affair with travel so much so that I have been named the VACATION HO of which I live up too proudly. My love affair started when I was young. I took my first trip at the age of 8 to Orlando, Fl. (Can you guess where I went?) yep, Walt Disney World just me and my mother and to show my age we flew Eastern Airlines, sat in first class and had duck as our meal. (Didn’t like it) and I’ve been traveling ever since. I use to go to the airport just to watch planes take off and land. Yes, strange I know but true. Now, I also developed a love for cruising which started from watching the Love Boat..again I know strange but true. Again, this is who I am.
I enjoy the entire process of traveling, finding the perfect place to visit, booking it and of course reaching my final destination. I will share a little of our last adventure. So, my sister and I decided to take our kids on a 7 day cruise on the Carnival Valor during vacation break. This was a cruise on my bucket list. At the time they were 9 & 10. This trip was a total surprise to them and what a JOY to see their reactions when they finally realized where we were going….PRICELESS!! We went to San Juan, PR, St. Thomas, Barbados, St. Lucia, St. Kitts and St. Maarteen. And yes, before you even say it the cruise industry has had some issues but our trip was perfect. To see the kids enjoy the food, the pools, water slides and to make new friends was unimaginable. All the planning and dollars that went into this vacation was all worth it and I would gladly do it again. I love to travel and explore the world and want the same for my son.

Our sail and sign cards. This is how we make purchases and get into our cabins.
SIDE NOTE: If you’ve never cruised before I think everyone should go at least once.
So, now you know a little about me.
