"When it came to hip hop style @iamaprilwalker was able to #raisethebar but she did so not just as a creative but as a businesswoman as well. I get really annoyed when mean text or email addressing me as "Queen" "Love" "Honey" and "Sweetheart" in business communications when I know they would never do that with another man. But like she pointed out, if you carry yourself correctly after a while something happens called "respect." Get her book @walkergems & learn how to cultivate a spirit of discernment from somewhere other than your couch."
"Loving @iamaprilwalker's new #walkergemsbook - very practical takeaways that I am using even now. Make sure to visit @walkerwear dotcom and check it out! #readysetgrow #walkergems"
"One of the parts of this book that resonated with me was seeing the value in the people and or things in and around our lives and being able to transform, being fluid and adaptable to the ever changing landscape of business and trends. @walkergems #walkergemsbook"
