    EP 30: Marriage & Real Estate with Charm City Buyers

    We're back with a very very special Powered AF episode! I got the chance to sit with Kyara Gray and Khalil Uqdah, the faces behind Charm City Buyers, a community focused, online wealth building community that not only encourages but teaches people how to invest in properties and utilize the many resources available to property buyers.
     
     
    We dive into Charm City Buyer's origins, early career goals and what motivated them to start their real estate venture in Baltimore versus a more popular location and much more. Kyara and Khalil's story is a strong tale of balance between love and business. Alongside being business partners Kyara and Khalil are also married with a child. They hold nothing back as they tell us the trials associated with managing it all from such a young age and major lessons that any business owner can apply!
     
     
    Real estate has always been a staple career path to ensure financial freedom and to step into the world of entrepreneurship. This episode is special because not only do we get a glimpse into how real estate works, Kyara & Khalil give us countless gems for anyone looking to enter the field.

    EP 29: [Powered Chat] Vision vs Recognition

    EP 29: [Powered Chat] Vision vs Recognition

    In this week's Powered AF "Powered Chat" I decided to jump on an IG Live discussion to go over my upcoming plans for the new year, where my mindstate is currently, and what I see for myself in the future. As a business owner you have to understand that life is full of changes. The things you may have valued in the beginning of your journey may not hold the same weight with where you are now. A major topic that's come to mind as of lately is vision versus recognition. Is it better to stick to a grand vision and disregard recognition until the mission is accomplished or should you put your work down for a second and step into the spotlight.
     
    We discuss the difference between working towards a greater mission and working solely for recognition, the pros and cons of both and most importantly what I think is the better of the two. As a business owner you'll be constantly confronted by these two very different paths and it's up to you to constantly evaluate where you are, who you are and where you want to be.
     
    This episode is for anyone stuck at the crossroads of producing content and building a public image or working hard in silence and strictly focusing on results.

    EP 28: Harsh Truths to Myself

    EP 28: Harsh Truths to Myself

    In this week's Powered Chat we're taking a trip into the past as I go over the harsh truths | should have told myself along my journey. This wasn't an easy episode to record and a lot of us struggle with being honest about our own faults. It's very easy to look outside of yourself when things are not right but the key to growth is being real with yourself so that you can make the changes necessary to continue your path to success.
     
     
    Over the last few months l've been taking the opportunity to analyze my life and where I want to be and how I see myself. Am I moving too slow or too quickly towards the life I desire? This entire episode is a detailed re-evaluation of self that any entrepreneur could relate to and learn from. Tune in as I go over the key lessons I've given to my mentees and how to apply them.
     
     
    The path to greatness is uncommon. You cannot become great by doing the same as everyone else. Excuses can't exist and commitment must override inconsistency if greatness is truly the path you are on. So while I go over each valuable message I'd tell my younger self, take the moment to reanalyze your position and consider what you'd say to your past self or even better what you've learned that can be applied to building out your greater future self!

    EP 27: [Powered Chat] My Favorite Lead Magnets (Part 5)

    EP 27: [Powered Chat] My Favorite Lead Magnets (Part 5)

    We're back for this week's Powered AF Powered Chat! We close out our 5 part conversational series with Katona Payne, owner of Build A Boss, a business strategy and development brand. Closing out this series we talk about my favorite lead magnets and how to use them. For any unfamiliar, lead magnets are strategies that attract potential customers towards your business and bring you one step closer to making a sale.
     
     
    In this episode I give pointers on using a few cost effective products that you can potentially offer to audiences that'll bring you more traction and sales. Often we overlook the knowledge of our customers on the products or services we provide and when doing that we miss out on important things we can offer our audience. We touch bases on how to make these strong leads and more in this week's Powered Chat.
