When Random Acts of Kindness IS your business!

  • Posted on Jun 11, 2018

Meet author, motivational speaker, philanthropist, and founder of DC Random Acts of Kindness, Nova Adams. I have known Nova casually for more than two decades. We grew up within 15 miles of one another in Washington, DC, both attended Norfolk State University, and Nova’s cousin is one of my best friends, however, I did not know Nova very well personally. It was not until a few months ago, I had the opportunity to get to know this lovely, nurturing soul on a deeper level. I saw a social media post regarding Nova’s outstanding accomplishment as a contributing author of “Women Inspiring Nations”. I was intrigued and instantly added Nova to my mental rolodex to be featured on MoMedia’s blog.

Fast forward to a few weeks ago, and here we are! Nova and I have had several conversations regarding her feature on our blog, and each time she has subtly poured kindness into me. Some people just have that affect to sprinkle kindness everywhere they go, and Nova is absolutely one of them. She makes it her business to be kind, and the world is a better place because of it! Thank you Nova Adams.

Nova and I spoke about the life changing event which led to her founding DC Acts of Kindness, why she became an author, advice for aspiring authors, and much much more. Enjoy the read and don’t forget to do that thing you’ve been wanting to do!

1.How did “Women Inspiring Nations” originate? 

The Idea of women inspiring nations was derived from visionary Cheryl Wood, who lead the project “Women Inspiring Nations” anthology as a platform for 25 women to courageously share our stories as VICTORS and not victims.  It’s a collective effort of 25 entrepreneurs collaborating in sharing parts of our journey of how we transformed pain into purpose, and tragedy into triumphs.

2. Why was it important for you to contribute to this body of work?

It was essential for me to contribute to this anthology for two reasons.  First, it was therapeutic for me to shine light on a pivotal moment in my life, which birthed the foundation DC Random Acts of Kindness.  Secondly, it’s my responsibility and duty to share my testimony with expectations of providing hope to the next person who may go through a similar experience.

3. Why did you become an author?

My initial position as an entrepreneur is speaking and hosting empowerment events, however, I believe documenting inspiring moments is such an intricate part of my journey.

4. What advice would you offer aspiring authors?

The best advice I can offer an aspiring author is to DECIDE and START.  There’s no one form of writing a book. Writing is like art, and the book is your canvas.  Allow your thoughts to take you and your audience where you want to go.  I began by processing though thought dumping via journaling.  Also, keep your audience in mind and speak in a way, which allows your audience to understand the flow of your story.

5. Where does your inspiration come from?

My inspiration comes from my responsibility to share my journey in hopes of helping someone else avoid unnecessary stress, strain and struggle. I’d like for my audience to feel as if my spirit is speaking directly to their spirit.

6. What are a few of your favorite books?

I have many favorite books. I truly enjoyed indulging in The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle, and The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz.  I also love reading magazines such as Essence and O, The Oprah Magazine.

7. What are you favorite quotes?

Be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind.  As a wo(man) thinketh, so is she. Transform your life by transforming your thoughts. and romans 8:28

8. What do you want to resonate with readers through your writings?

I would like readers to be encouraged. The universe will test you, however, it also prepares and positions you to pass the test.  Thus doing so we are elevated to new levels.  Some say new level, new devils… I say new levels, new challenges.  You were chosen for such a task… rise up and conquer. Victory is already yours.  Life lessons are not to break you. They are presented to test your resilience. It is up to you to sail or sink.

9. Where and what time of the day do you typically write?

I write when it comes to my mind. I have journal apps on my phone. I also utilize “my notes” on my phone.  If it’s really important, I will send an email to myself.  However, I credit it all to spirit, not me.  So when spirit speaks…I record, write, or journal it.

10. Where would you like to  see yourself five years from now?

5 years from now, I see myself as an award winning published author, on The New York Times best sellers list, as well as having developed a series of books with various types of merchandise. I envision myself speaking globally and being interviewed by my God mommy (in my head) Oprah! 🙂
