    Ep. 160 - Show Up As Your Authentic Self (w. Petrona Joseph)

    Ep. 160 - Show Up As Your Authentic Self (w. Petrona Joseph)

    Today's guest is something of a powerhouse.


    Indeed, Petrona Joseph has carried numerous titles and prestigious positions to her name such as being the celebrated voice behind the SlayedItMontreal Fashion & Lifestyle blog. She also served as VP of Marketing for Montreal Caribbean Fashion Week while also being named one of Montreal’s 100 Most Influential Women.


    She is also a published Author and fierce Mental Health Advocate, demystifying mental illness in the Black Community.


    Because of the current context in which we find ourselves with the COVID-19 pandemic, border-crossing restrictions, social interactions slowly readjusting - I know that a lot of us are deal with their fair share of Mental overwhelm. Which is why I've purposely been talking a lot about Mental Health, Anxiety, Depression and related issues for a couple of episodes now.


    Petrona uses her influence to create an open and honest dialogue around destigmatizing mental health, making her one of the most sought-after speakers on the topic in North America.


    A true standout individual not just for her bright and sparkling personality but also, and most importantly, for the incredible amount of work she has done and continues to do as she chooses to use her own story of personal struggle with severe depression and anxiety to serve as a beacon of light for those of us still in the dark.


    I want to thank Petrona for her time and humbling vulnerability. Giving us the strength to look in the mirror - and smile...genuinely, freely and courageously.


    You can connect with Petrona through her various outlets around the web such as Facebook or Instagram.


    Be sure to grab a copy of her latest book "Stigmatized: Breaking the Silence and Demystifying Mentall Illness" available now on Amazon.


    Enjoy.

    Ep. 159 - Be Unwavering (w. Eloïse Gagnon)

    Ep. 159 - Be Unwavering (w. Eloïse Gagnon)

    I cannot tell a lie. Today's guest really intimidated me at first.


    Thing is, having been a sub-par student in a past life, I often find myself dealing with a bit of insecurity when I realize the level of accomplishment, both academic as well as professional, that many of my guests have under their belts. 


    Call me foolish but it's still something I find myself struggling with at times. I've done a reasonably good job of keeping this subtle Impostor Syndrome at bay. But sometimes, you get to exchange with someone who is so accomplished and a literal force to be reckoned with, you have an urge to sit up straight because you know there's going to be some serious knowledge coming your way.


    In that regard, I can tell you that Eloïse Gagnon did NOT disappoint.


    An entrepreneur for over 20 years and an international corporate lawyer for more than 15, Eloïse has worked alongside business leaders from around the world, leading her own 7 and 8 figure businesses along the way.


    Eloïse’s ownership approach to leadership and culture is responsible for countless clients redefining what’s possible and shattering glass ceilings. She’s been featured in some of the world’s leading publications, including Authority Magazine and Thrive Global.


    This conversation both moved and impacted me in so many ways. From Eloïse's incredibly warm and vulnerable sense of truth, to her resonating message of courage and ownership, this was a reminder of why we aim to bring these incredible individuals and their stories to you.


    On this episode, we discuss the importance of recognizing your incredible potential, defining your purpose(because we all have one), learning to get comfortable with our discomfort...and some many life-altering truths...this is one to take notes, guys - trust me.

    Ep. 158 - On Overwhelm

    Ep. 158 - On Overwhelm

    Haven't made a episode in awhile.


    Felt appropriate to bring these observations to you as I had been dealing with my own fair share of mental exhaustion hence my obvious absence from the interwebs.


    Hope that these words find you well and that you can find them useful, however small.


    Enjoy.

    He is also the founder of the RISE Anxiety & Depression Clinic where he and his diverse network of psychologists, psychotherapists, social workers and certified coaches provide help for anxiety, stress, depression and much more.

    [SPECIAL FEATURE] - Teach Reach Podcast w. host: Tanguy Exumé / Ep. 5 - Awaken The Awesome : Olivier Day

    [SPECIAL FEATURE] - Teach Reach Podcast w. host: Tanguy Exumé / Ep. 5 - Awaken The Awesome : Olivier Day

    Greetings, Awesome Tribe.


    No need to adjust your podcast player - this is a just a little nugget of a surprise for you all.


    As you may have heard, if you follow me on Social Media, I had to take a step back and pull the brakes on pretty much everything as I had been struggling with a lot. As much of a resilient person as I am, it was important to admit to myself that I may have been taking on too much...podcast included.


    Took some time off to recenter and it's during this period that my good friend Tanguy reached out and extended and invitation to be on his Teach Reach podcast.


    It was a 'leap' of sorts as I pretty much didn't know if I was even in the mood to be a guest but my dedication to showing for my friends and being the support that they need was the motivation to sit down with a fellow Awesome soul and have a conversation.


    What a phenomenal exchange it was. Can't tell you how thrilling it was to be sharing with such a skilled and gracious host.


    Have a listen. I guarantee you'll enjoy it and then some!


    Thanks to Tanguy for an amazing exchange.
