S1E16 -How to Communicate through Entanglements (with Damon Jones)

"Communication is a "how" we achieve great things in life.  It is not an end in itself."  These are the words from Damon Jones, a kid from Detroit and Chief Communications Officer for Procter & Gamble, the world's largest consumer packaged goods company...to name a few.  Have you ever had a conversation and wondered...hmmmm, how did we end up here?  I know I have.  Damon and I talk everything from his excitement of opening, Nostalgia, a Black-owned wine and jazz lounge in Downtown Cincinnati during a pandemic, to communications in and outside of the corporate space, to even strategies that will help you avoid communication entanglements, whether now or years to come.  Through a few laughs, pointed and transparent dialogue, and my "come as you are" round of questions, we jumped #allin.  You don't want to miss this three-layered, power-episode of Coaching, Cocktails, & Conversations!

S1E15 -My Road to 43 Years Old - Turning The Table (with Carla B & 52 Friends)

There are moments in your life that simply take your breath away..in a good typa way!  This is one of them. Imagine being still while 52 others gift you feedback or share tidbits to you, about you.  Imagine their words being intertwined into the story that you are simultaneously telling of yourself, through a powerful interview, conducted by a close friend. Sounds uncomfortable right?    Imagine pointed questions, some of which make you feel vulnerable & others that have you talk aloud of your wins.  It’s my true journey to 43 years old and I am sharing the ups, downs, twists, and turns.  It was during these moments that I finally felt what Grandma Bea meant when she said, " you must find a way to smell your roses while you are here on this earth."  I must say that I am soooo grateful for each of you!
