Meet Lyque OConnor

Today we’d like to introduce you to Lyque OConnor.

Hi Lyque, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstory with our readers?
Hello, my name is LyQue & I have been married (3X) yes. 3 times (1) had (3) kids while we were married & he was on drugs really bad. (2) had a SEX ADDICTION, need I explain??? (3) FINALLY, my dream man. I am the only family member left in my immediate family. I have suffered a lot of loss, over the past years, mother, father, grandmother, father, sister & brothers are all died, But I have a son, and stepson(s) and other family members so that I am not coincidently depressed.

I had my son when I was 17-year-old & he is a wonderful person I have 6/6+grandkids. I retired after working for the City of Baltimore for over 30 years, living my best life. I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer 2021 so now; I am a CANCER SUVIVIOR & still living my best LIFE. Was bored and started selling Adult Toys, Cosmetics, Notary, & Travel Agent!

My current husband is 1/2 Irish & 1/2 Germany & we love to travel. Can’t wait to travel again been to Europe over 20+ times, some of my favorite places to visit Vienna Austria, Bern Switzerland, Berlin, Frankfurt, Leipzig, Stuttgart, Freiburg Germany, I can go on and on, but will stop for now. 🙂

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
No it has never been a smooth road. But you learn to never give up and to push though whatever life Opticals comes your way. My family were alcoholics, so I had to defend for myself and then I had a child at a young age, so I learned to be responsible adult at a young age.

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
I worked for the local government for 30+ years. I recently retired & was bored, so I decided to go back into the sales business. I currently sell Adult Novelty for BedroomKandi, I also have a cosmetic line called Kandikoated & I recently became a Travel Agent for Cruise Brothers. I am not known for any of the jobs that I listed, other than being a jack of all trade and a master of none! This means that I can do it all but will not hesitate to call on the professionals. I am a motivator, that has a big heart, but don’t cross me or I will go off!

Right now, I am most proud of how strong I have become over the last couple of years. Dealing with health issues such as Depression & Cancer is not fun and not everyone come out as strong, but I did, and I am very proud of myself for this accomplishment.

What sets me apart from others is I am a people person. That mean I can hold a conversation with anyone, I am very comfortable in my life, I speak my mine, I am a no hold back person. Having a child at 17 back in the 80’s was way different than it is now. But I did it and I am very proud of myself for how my son has turned out. despite all the obstacles. We did it together.

Do you have recommendations for books, apps, blogs, etc?
Not really but anything positive that I can read was helpful but no one in particular.
