Keep a little wisdom by your side to dip into whenever you need support, inspiration, or encouragement.

  • What's Real What's Not and Somewhere In-Between: Reminders for women about men

To get notified of new releases and author events, request updates here:


This is a book of reminders for women about men.

Things they need to know. Things they've never been taught, and the things they find confusing about men and their relationships with men...

So many of us women have been through so much with our men. We could in our minds legitimately say they took advantage of us. Undoubtedly, we could feel and believe in our hearts they disrespected, devalued, diminished, disrupted, and disassociated themselves from our lives. Some of us could say, "He is the absolute best thing that’s ever happened to me." It really just depends on where you are in your life's journey and your relationship with men.

This book will bring to life the wisdom of your deepest thoughts, knowings, and understanding—provoking and confirming things you already know. Things from which you've been running from, acknowledging, or accepting about the situations you are facing or have experienced in your relationships. How would you feel if you knew it was all necessary? Every new and exciting beginning, every disappointing and hard ending, every loss and every gain was all necessary for you to stretch, learn, heal, grow, and evolve.

About Zakiya Fatin

Transformational Life Coach & Public Speaker

Zakiya Fatin is a reverend, coach, mentor, inspirational influencer, and mother.

Born and raised in the Philadelphia Area, her story began at a young age when she realized she had a passion for supporting, elevating, and inspiring others. Zakiya has over 18 years of experience in Artist Development and Creative Direction as well as a 30-year career in the music industry as a dancer, choreographer, singer performer, and manager of talent.

After taking a break from the music industry, Zakiya realized there was more, more for her to be and do. So, she went in search of a deeper connection to something greater than herself. She went on study at Inner Visions Institute for Spiritual Development (IVISD) under the leadership and guidance of Rev. Dr. Iyanla Vanzant. She was ordained in June 2016 as a minister of spiritual consciousness and continues with IVISD where she holds a faculty position within the Spiritual Life Coaching Program. During her time with IVISD, she continues to work directly with IyanlaVanzant at numerous workshops throughout the year such as Wonder Woman Weekend and The Spirit of a Man.

Zakiya is also in charge of several charity drives and giveaways conducted during the holiday season in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Zakiya founded Zakiya Fatin Enterprises (ZFE), where she supports individuals to “live their lives unapologetically on the stage of their world.” Through ZFE she has conducted numerous workshops including Project Move and Activate Your Champion.

Zakiya Fatin initials

As a single mother who has struggled and lost everything, Zakiya understands the importance of the effects your personal lives can have on our children. She is able to use her story and triumph over arduous times to uplift others.

Zakiya facilitates an Annual Mother Daughter workshop, where mothers are able to shed light on situations, circumstances, and life choices and daughters are able to share the impact of those decisions on them and their lives. This workshop creates opportunities for deep healing, understanding, and to create an unbreakable bond between mother and daughter. She will be facilitating the first of many Father and Son workshops this coming year.

With every workshop Zakiya creates, she provides principles, skills, and tools which allow every participant to move through, to, or from their current life experiences to the desired outcome. She believes that every life has a purpose, and every voice matters.

If you are ready to choose YOU and give voice to your innermost desires, calling them forth into manifestation… now is the time!

Zakiya Fatin is ready, willing, and available support you.

Community Service

During the holiday seasons in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Zakiya is always a servant of the people. She volunteers alongside her family managing the delivery of food drives and other service projects.

A Note From Zakiya

I support individuals in bold transformation. Living their lives on purpose and in full view on the stage of the world. Making clear and known who they are, what they do, and why.

My 18 plus years’ experience in Artist Development and Creative Direction as well as a 30-year career in the music industry, I am more than qualified. I am a visionary ready to support the transformation of individuals and entertainers from all walks of life to unapologetically stand in the fullness of who they are through the expansion and mastery of their individual gifts and talents.

Even more so what I know to be true is that every individual who is led to me is a representation in some aspect of who I used to be and/or the things I used to do. I’ve done my work and while there is always more work, growth, and healing to be done. My personal experiences and the calling on my life qualifies and allows me to meet every individual right where they are with humility, gentleness, and the love that flows in, as, and through me.

Zakiya Fatin initials

I am aware that my purpose is to serve unconditionally!

What’s yours? Do you know?

Let’s find out together, let me support you in standing in your truth.

Praise for the Love & Light Kit:

"The Love & Light Kit embodies a beautiful expression of love, compassion, and comfort during one of the heart’s darkest hours. A dear friend of mine had just experienced a devastating loss and I was struggling to find the perfect words to say. Fortunately, this kit said and expressed it all. Now, I definitely prefer to send The Love & Light Kit to those experiencing a loss or hardship than sending flowers. This kit is simply amazing."

"Such a loving and thoughtful gift to receive upon my arrival home after laying my mother to rest. Which has been one of the hardest moments of my life second only to the transition of my brother. Thank you."

"Hello!! I want to say thank you!!!! I went outside and I had this package. I recently lost my dad and it's been rough. The package arrived after a bad day!!! And when I opened it I cried immediately. I then started to read the notes and stuff then realized my cousin gifted this to me and OMG this is beautiful and exactly what I needed right now!!"

"I just received this package at my front door completely puzzled as to what it was, and to a pleasant surprise my beautiful friend sent me this beautiful gift. I'm full with tears and emotions. This journey of grieving has been so hard and heavy on my heart so thank you I love it."

  • FREE standard shipping to the 48 contiguous United States.

Grieving is a Process

Static cling labels

Grieving is a individual experience; there is no right or wrong way to grieve. How you grieve depends on many factors, including your personality and coping style, your life experience, your faith, and how significant the loss was to you.

Give yourself permission to feel what you need to feel when you need to feel it and know that you will recover. It’s okay to not be okay!

The Other Side of Grief

Static cling labels

It is absolutely okay to be okay even when you or the people around you think you shouldn’t be.

You can ride the wave or let it take you under. You get to choose. As for me... I’m riding high.
