25 episodes

We tell the unexpected stories of women and men living life on their terms, deviating from the memo called 'Life', challenging status quo and being amazing at it. The podcast series starts off with Yemi telling her own stories and mentoring listeners on ways in which they can create their own version of the memo.
We take conversations from the couch to the office and speak to women who chose career over children, men who struggle with balancing 'work' and 'family'. Daring to be vulnerable in the work place and having the audacity to dream BIG. We discuss a story I know all too well of the single parent working hard to provide for their family and chasing the dream.
This podcast is for the individual and the Coporate world, reminding you to Live Life on Your Terms.
Yemi starts the series with a brief introduction on her journey and drastic deviation from the memo when she fell pregnant and was homeless.

    Can I be real with you? I'm not sure the city life is for me anymore.
    Over the past 2 years I have wanted to go off grid! Lisa gave me insight to what this means and what it could look like. Jess is an inspiration for those ready to explore a different way of living.

    Pandemonium with Dr Kudzai

    Pandemonium with Dr Kudzai

    I haven't girl crushed this hard in ages! Speaking to Dr Kudzai was like Christmas coming early and Oprah inviting me into her garden all at once.
    The COVID pandemic has filled us with so much fear and mis-information. Dr Kudzai not only showed up with #blackexcellence, she came with compassion, shift in perspective, hope and a clear call to action.
    One of my favourite guests of 2021!

    What the PMDD?

    What the PMDD?

    I had no idea what PMDD meant until I spoke to Adriana Tantau, a fearless woman who has been open and vulnerable talking about the condition called 'Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder'
    You want to listen to this if you identify as a woman and especially if you are a man.
    Knowing this changed my perspective and that my friend is what 'Transformation' is.

    This was recorded over a year ago and it is more relevant than ever. A sensitive topic that was incredibly close to home. A conversation that more parents should be having especially during this difficult period. Sending all the love and light to those who are in need.

Just what I needed

A really thought provoking and inspiring podcast. It actually encourages you to take action and make positive changes to your life. The goal setting episode gave practical tips and ideas on how to actually visualise and work towards your goals in your personal and professional life. Eagerly awaiting the next instalment. Definitely a podcast I will be returning to.

Raw and authentic - love it!

I rarely if ever leave reviews but listening to this gave me goosebumps and the real kick up the bum I needed to strive even harder towards my goals. It helps that Yemi’s voice is super soothing and she speaks frankly and without judgment. Have subscribed.
