The Venus Morris Griffin Story
In 2010, I received a phone call in the middle of the night from a prostitute that changed my life. She told me she was sleeping with my husband. I begged her to meet me. She agreed. I drove to a seedy motel across town, and during the visit, my husband called her confirming my worst fears. The call catapulted me into one of the most challenging times I would ever endure with my six children. In a matter of months, my husband could not escape the bright light shining on his crimes. He was sentenced to 45 years in prison. Overnight, I went from a stay at home mom to six children to being forced to find a job that would keep us all fed. I was drowning in debt. Nothing about my life was easy, but failure isn’t an option when you have six kids to raise. I want my story to be the very thing another mother may need to also overcome suffocating challenges and rise above any obstacle that may hold her back. For this reason, I share my story.
Meet the 10 people who own my heart. I am the mother of seven wonderful children: John (23), Julia (21), Alexis (19), Sydney (17), Elle (11), Charles (9), and Hannah Lou (3). I am a grandmother to two beautiful twins Gisele and Vendela. I remarried in 2013 to the most incredible man, Hank Griffin. We are happily living in Augusta, Georgia where I am the city’s top producing agent at Meybohm Real Estate, and Hank is the President and CEO at Kulkhe Construction & Associates, Inc.
I’ll never forget when my divorce attorney strongly advised me to find a “real job” if I wanted to provide for my family. I disagreed and told him, “I have to at least try.” Almost a decade later, I achieved an unprecedented level of success bringing in over $50 million in sales volume in 2018. My family is my top priority, when I’m not with them, I’m busy selling homes or hopscotching the world sharing my story about overcoming adversity.
