Empowering women to look stunning & feel resilient through inspirational quotes & stories.
Be You Jewels was started in 2013 by G’Mesha Blake. G’Mesha is a devout Christian mother and wife who hails from McClellanville, SC, a small town on the outskirts of Charleston, SC. G’Mesha currently resides in High Point, NC. with her husband and daughter.
G’Mesha obtained her Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Accounting from the Alice Carson Tisdale Honors College at Claflin University in Orangeburg, SC, where she graduated Magna Cum Laude in 2009. She also became a member of the Gamma Chi Chapter of the Illustrious Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., at Claflin University, on March 30, 2007.
After starting her career with a higher education institution in 2010, G’Mesha returned to school to receive a Masters of Business Administration which she obtained from the University of Phoenix in 2012.
G’Mesha has always loved bargain shopping for clothes, shoes, and accessories which is why she has priced all items in the store $15 or less. G’Mesha has also always been an “open book” and had a passion for uplifting and encouraging other women to love and embrace their authentic selves, flaws and all, so they can live freely while striving to be better in all aspects of life.
As a result, G’Mesha took a leap of faith and started Be YOU Jewels to empower women to look stunning and feel resilient through inspirational quotes and stylish jewelry and accessories!
Hello JEWEL! I hope you had a great weekend and start to this new week that will bring you brand new opportunites!
Today my post is inspired by a personal business failure. Several months ago I decided to be long eyed and took on a little more than I could chew. I tried having an online presence on all social media sites, a blog, email subscription and everything else a registered, start-up small business must do. And, boy did I fail horribly!!
However, when you’re an opportunist like myself failure is not final. Failure, instead, is an opportunity to rebuild and restart. Not with the same mindset, not feeling defeated, not replaying the failure but with purpose and vengeance!!!
If you’re smart and serious about being the best, you’d also have done your research & gained some knowledge about how to turn your failure into a success story!
Today, by the grace of God, I’m proud to say that I have, and I’m a living witness that FAILURE IS NOT FINAL!
I encourage you to push through the hurt, fight through the feeling of defeat. Failure is not final! Success is waiting for you!

Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and all other things will be added unto you (Matthew 6:33)
If you don’t want to stay stagnant and want more than a mediocre life then you’re always looking for “the next best thing to do.” Your mind hardly ever settles and you’re always thinking about the next level and what it’s going to take to get there. If that means sleepless nights, so be it. If that means sacrificing no days off, bring it on. We’re willing to do whatever it takes because we want it. Constantly thinking “if I get one more…” And there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that, BUT….
Don’t let your want for more THINGS make you forget about your need for the maker of ALL things! He knows and promised to supply all our needs according to His riches and glory in Heaven (Philippians 4:19), which is limitless, so don’t think for one second He doesn’t know or can’t do anything about your situation! You are not in it alone! What is impossible for man is possible with Christ (Philippians 4:13).
When there’s a shortage, you don’t need more RESOURCES (money, people, attention, followers, etc). Go to the SOURCE of ALL things (the One who blesses you with the resources). See the NEED for more of Him, and an abundance of everything you need will be added unto you! (Jeremiah 29:12)
Stay BEYOUtiful JEWELS!!
