<h5>Hey y'all, </h5>

I'm Lily Be. 

<h5> </h5><h5>I am. </h5>I have no expectations about anyone or anything outside of myself. I have been called a hood-ass b**** from the West Side of Chicago (Humboldt Park) more than I care to remember. I used to believe that was all I would ever amount to be. I mean, I was lead to believe that I really had nothing going for me. I am the daughter of Mexican immigrants, I'm a teen mom, I have a criminal record, I am not big money rich, I don't have a formal education, and I am not conventionally attractive or successful by societal standards. However, when I became a storyteller in 2010, things radically changed for me. My life, both good and bad became a vehicle of truth that helped me find my purpose and reminded me that I DESERVE to be here just as much as anyone else. That fear and shame went away. Owning my story changed the course of my life and I believe it can change the course of yours. 
I'm creating content that helps us make sense of ourselves. In early 2010, I wanted to die. I didn't think that I could go on. Again, I was poor, I was lost, I had been abused and made feel like I didn't matter by family friends and the world around me. Today, I am a completely changed woman and I have storytelling to thank for that. Storytelling allowed me to take my deepest and darkest fears, anxieties, and truths and share them to a world that I came to realize felt just as I felt. It allowed me to open myself up to myself in a way that allowed me to make the changes and take the steps to living a life that was more in line with the person I wanted to be. I want to do that for more people because let's be real, not all of us are ready to go there. Shit, I wasn't, but I did it and only want to help you all find your voices and speak your truths.
Tiers
5 Word Story Dropping
$1 or more per month

I share a story in five words. Hemmingway did it in six. I'll share one of my many many many many stories in five. 

5 random Love brain droppings
$5 or more per month

Every month you will recieve five brain droppings about what La Doña Lily Be thinks about when it comes to love, being in love, showing love, petty love, and true love. 

Brain Droppings Plus
$10 or more per month

I will send out an extended version of my brain droppings. These are lists of thoughts, questions, conversation starters, connections, reflections that have helped me make sense of what I'm feeling or going through. They are meant to help people also reflect on similar questions they might have. Brain droppings plus are aimed at inspiring the brain droppings inside all of us. Get those questions and thoughts out of your heads and into the world. You never know who may have the answer or advice you have looking for. Make room in your brain for bigger and better thoughts and things.

Brain Dropping Stories
$15 or more per month

I take one of my brain droppings and tell y'all a story about it. There is always a story behind why a particular brain dropping got stuck in my head. You will get a private link to a video along with document of the first two tiers. Believe me, my storytelling is amazing and you'll probably be inspired to jump to the next tier.

Let's talk about your brain droppings.
$25 or more per month only 10 left

Every month we get to meet up on ZOOM video conferencing for a half hour and go through your brain dropping list or revisit any of mine and just shoot the shit about it. Who knows, we might discover something really interesting about you. In fact, I know we will. 😉 There are only 10 of these available.

Goals
$0 of $500 per month
At this level, I will start recording videos of my favorite brain droppings and posting them online.
