OWN Networks hosted a private luncheon for the highly anticipated docu-series, “Checked Inn” at the historical Wimbush House located in the heart of midtown Atlanta. The quaint ballroom welcomed guest to the aroma of the delectable buffet spread serviced by celebrity Chef Shawn also featured as the lead chef on the upcoming show. While enjoying lunch guests interacted with Checked Inn’s stars Monique Greenwood and Chef Shawn which later led to a brief yet transparent discussion about the show and her journey to success. The audience was captivated by her courage to leave Essence Magazine as Editor -in -Chief to pursue her dream of becoming the owner and chief operator of her own chain of bed and breakfast.
I for one was inspired by Monqiue because of her resilience. It takes a lot of courage to continue to step put on faith to make your dreams come true, but most importantly she had a great team behind her. As I sat there and at my food because ya’ll know I love a good meal, I thought about my own journey to be successful. I want to watch this show mainly because I like to soak in information but because for once there is something positive to watch on TV. Talk about a new way to be entertained and inspired at the same time. Monique Greenwood is a black girl who is doing it, and I am loving her magical glow.
“Checked Inn” premieres Tuesday, November 21st at 10:00pm on OWN.
