My Interview with Iyanla Vanzant on Losing Her Home

As I mentioned a few weeks ago I spoke with Iyanla Vanzant about losing her home. You can read the interview on The Root. Feel free to leave your reactions there and on my blog. It's a good interview. Vanzant was honest and open. I know a lot of people are going through hard times because of this economy. I'm struggling too. When she announced at the State of the Black Union that her home went into foreclosure I wanted to know what happened. She was filled with hope and confidence that she would survive this ordeal, I thought the interview would be informative and uplifting for people in similar situations. Thanks for reading and for all those people new to Cocoa Fly. Welcome!!
