We had the good fortune of connecting with Maury Danielle and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Maury, what do you attribute your success to?
The most important factor behind the accomplishments of our brand is the ability to be authentic, transparent, and vulnerable. BF2F is committed to sharing truths, giving voice to the oppressed, and cultivating real hope and healing for lasting change. Since the COVID-19 pandemic, it has been imperative for BF2F to provide helpful resources, tips, and tools to promote self-awareness, self-care, and overall encouragement. As we continue to release products and resources, we are thankful to all of our supporters that help to spread the message of faith, hope, and love.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
BF2F was birthed out of a desire to help survivors of life’s traumatic experiences and circumstances. I want to see people healthy and free. As a result, my motivation has been to create a deeper level of awareness, education, and tools to help reform and transform the mind for optimal growth, purpose, peace, and balance. My most recent publication, Good Mourning Nude details my personal story of self-discovery and redemption in freeing myself and my children from a very debilitating and toxic situation. Having products that display a message of hope, healing and love have been something that truly has set BF2F apart. Our tangible and intangible messages of hope through the book and our merchandise truly empower and encourage so many. Since the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been a rising need for mental health therapy and life transformational coaching. BF2F understands that many people are not doing what is required for them to become mentally, emotionally, spiritually, physically, and holistically healthy. Oftentimes it is not because they don’t want to, but because they lack the fundamental tools, and financial resources that it takes to be free from destructive patterns, thoughts, and behaviors. It has been a rewarding journey of personal development, strength, interpersonal healing, and victory for me so I want to inaugurate this path for others. This quest has not come without its trials and tribulations, but I am excited to continue the work of doing my part to impact and transform lives. As BF2F prepares to launch our R.E.C.O.V.E.R.Y Life Coaching program in Summer 2021, I am confident that this will contribute to the change and healing that our society so desperately needs right now. I am reminded of the scripture Matthew 9:37 “The harvest is great, but the workers are few.” We are committed to working tirelessly to enhancing the overall well-being of our clients. As our focus has been on working with domestic violence survivors and those that have experienced situational depression, and trauma we appreciate the trust and ability to serve globally. “Our biggest challenge often times can become our biggest blessing. It depends on how you view it.” Maury Danielle
