I am the trustee of me and I claim my power" is what we declare at the onset of this episode! Whew!! What do you think of when you hear the word "power?" We're answering questions + dropping nuggets on the definition of power, what to do when your power is at its lowest, how to grab it back, and so much more! Power is that 5-lettered word that we can get lost in if we aren't careful! I welcome you to the kitchen-table (minute 1:02), gift a bit of coaching & soul work (minute 3:39) to challenge your thinking, enjoy a few cocktails (minute 12:56) to celebrate all of the greatness you are, then we have some good ole fashion conversations, just you & I (minute 17:08).
!!EXPLICT LANGUAGE IN ON SECTION!! “I am honest and live in my truth,” is the affirmation that kicks off this episode, which challenges your answer to the question of who is at your playground? and how do you acknowledge & engage? In a world where judging is often first of mind, assuming is a close second, & fear of our differences oftentimes crowd our space, we talk all about challenging our status quo with a focus on diversity and inclusion. I gift a bit of coaching (minute 3:00) to challenge your thinking, with a bit of soul work and a story on bullies, enjoy a few cocktails (minute 12:03) to celebrate greatness, then we have some kitchen-table conversations with Mariangela Abeo (minute 13:37), suicide survivor, founder & photographer of The Faces Of Fortitude Project, TEDx speaker, & podcaster. I ask you again, are you honest and live in your truth?
When I sprinkled a bit of supernatural on top of my natural....chillleeeee....my whole world shifted AND SO CAN YOURS! In this episode, I bring you #COACHING (Minute 1:57) via an exercise and a story of me on the floor like a baby in a fetal position AT 40 years old, #COCKTAILS (Minute 11:48), as we celebrate your wins, and #CONVERSATIONS (Minute 12:56), as Joy Sutton, Former TV News Anchor, Talk Show Host, & Communications Coach breaks all-things natural down for us! She is giving us all of her supernatural to help you shine! MAKE MY NATURAL SUPERNATURAL...COME ON SOMEBODY!
This episode is emotion-filled and raw, yet still gifts coaching, cocktails, & conversations. Yes, I'm angry and disheartened, yet conditioned to see always see a glimmer of hope. May you remind yourself that IT IS OK NOT TO BE OK! It is ok to sit in the power of your pause, UNAPOLOGETICALLY! With the violence that's been thrust upon our black boys and men, I am giving you all of me. As a Black mother raising a Black Young Boy, the murders, senseless acts of violence, and hate-filled streets hit hard and spun me in a momentary interruption that I wasn't ready for.
When was a time when YOUR Courage met your Fear? How did you feel? How did you overcome that fear? Wait....did you overcome it? Hmmmm, worth the pause right? In this episode, I bring you #COACHING (Minute 2:35) via an exercise and a story of fear at my 1st TEDx talk! ahhhhh, #COCKTAILS (Minute 17:55), as we celebrate your wins, and #CONVERSATIONS (Minute 18:25), as we listen in to Elmora Evans, a front-line nurse and survivor of Covid19, who returned in to work 21 days! WHEN COURAGE MEETS FEAR!
I'm just getting started! We're talking YOUR FOUNDATION, how you define it, and how you strengthen it! I use my inaugural episode to not only introduce the three components of my podcast, but to also gift you an exercise and the space to think through the challenge of each question. Of course, you cannot leave without grabbing your "soul work." #LetsGO
