    Ep.70: Do You Boo Boo!

    Ep.70: Do You Boo Boo!

    Happy Wednesday Everyone! It's Valentines day week and I know how that can be for us singles out there. It's suppose to be a day of love but society has us thinking that if we are significant-otherless, we have to be down in the dumps. NEGATIVE. V-day is a day of love that can be shared with anyone we love, including pets! (Shoutout to my cat Chester!)
    So as we report to work on Friday, do not get distracted by all of the flowers, chocolates and balloons floating around. Get your work done and plan a romantic evening with yourself and/or your friends and celebrate love your way way. 
    On this episode I talk about V-day in the workplace and what you can do to cope with V-day as a single. The advice is not lengthy or complicated, it's to just  "do you boo boo!"

    Ep. 69: Get Yourself A Mentor!

    Ep. 69: Get Yourself A Mentor!

    This week my highlight of the week ended up turning into this week's discussion topic. After weeks of trying to navigate this murky terrain called my job and wondering "what I do this for", it dawned on me that I am without a mentor. 
    I have always had a mentor, but over the last few years, I have just been going with the flow, learning a new industry and literally just making it. In all my efforts do my job and do it well, I forgot to pick up a mentor in my new field of law. I think before, because the work was somewhat routine (as litigation and arbitration can often be) I didn't feel the need top find a mentor. But now I am not litigating. It's a totally different role. I literally had an"aha!" moment in the shower and it all makes a little more sense now. I am without guidance and I need to get some guidance ASAP Rocky!
    So on this episode, I talk about this "aha!" moment and the importance of finding a mentorship and how to properly go about locating your career guru.

    EP. 67: The Art of Trying. Don't Let These Streets Stunt Your Growth!

    EP. 67: The Art of Trying. Don't Let These Streets Stunt Your Growth!

    The great Aaliyah once said "dust yourself off and try again". Now I am pretty sure when Aaliyah said this phrase in her song Try Again, she was likely talking about love and relationships. But even so, I think that she was spot on.
    This week I am talking about the art of trying. I reacquainted myself with the phrase "if at first you don't succeed try try again". I think as professional women of color, we are so wrapped up in public opinion and perception. We are afraid to try new things out of fear of being perceived as someone who is "all over the place", "wishy washy".
    There is a difference between being a hot mess and  being someone ins pursuit of greatness. Some of us came out of the womb knowing what we wanted to be in life. Purposed from birth. Others, such as myself, are still trying to figure out where we fit in. However, in order to figure it out, you have to try new things. You have to be open minded and you have to be ok with the F- word, FAILURE. 
    Failure is a part of life. No one likes it. I sure don't. In fact, I hate it. But it is part of the process.
    Tune in as I talk about the importance of trying and how "living up to standards" is ruining our lives.

    Ep 66. New Year, Better Me

    Ep 66. New Year, Better Me

    Happy New Year FREEda Fam! Happy new decade and I wish you love, health, prosperity and a large money bag in this new season!
    As you can see FREEda's World made it to the new decade and we could not have done this without your help!
    On today's show, I will be talking about the concept of taking marginal steps in order to achieve your ambitious goals. If you are anything like me, you are a dreamer. You dream big. You set big goals. But then you become overwhelmed by the very goals you set. Why? Is it because you dreamed too big? Was the goal too great? No, not at all. The issue is not the goal that you set, but the way you are approaching it. The problem lies in the way you are trying to achieve the goal. 
    If you are thinking to yourself, what the hell is she talking about, then tune in and find out how applying this marginal step approach has already set me on the right path to my own success!
