    Episode 59: How to Revamp Your Schedule and Create More Time

    Episode 59: How to Revamp Your Schedule and Create More Time

    If you’re anything like me, there are days that pass by and you can’t account for each hour of your day. Maybe you’re spending more time than planned watching TV or scrolling social media. You haven’t been able to identify the gaps in your schedule, thus you don’t know how to make time for your priorities. You don’t know what causes distractions, so you have no real, consistent plan for your time.

    Time is relative and it’s different for every one of us. You and I both have different demands on our time, thus our 24 hours will not look the same. However, we can all benefit from determining our real priorities and creating time for what matters most to us.

    Join me in this episode as I help you figure out what your real priorities are, how to create more time in your day, and how you can be in charge of your own schedule, so that you can focus on your priorities and plans.

    Episode 58: How to Navigate Hearing No at Work

    Episode 58: How to Navigate Hearing No at Work

    I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve coached women through the fear of hearing, “No.” So many of us are afraid of feeling rejected and we take the “No” personally. We don’t try new things, we don’t ask for what we deserve, and we don’t give ourselves a chance to pursue our dreams because we fear potential rejection.

    Rejection decreases your ability to keep pushing forward. It increases anger, anxiety, depression, jealousy, and sadness. It drives imposter syndrome and lack of self-confidence. It sabotages your future success.
    Join me in this episode as I unpack the fear of hearing, “No,” the underlying fear being rejected, and how you can push past that fear.

    Episode 55: How to DEMAND the kind of feedback that will take you to the next level

    Episode 55: How to DEMAND the kind of feedback that will take you to the next level

    One thing I’ve learned over my 15 years in Corporate America is that feedback can be a key differentiator between those who succeed and and those who don’t. Especially for those of us who are looking to climb the ladder, take on leadership positions, and/or secure higher paying opportunities, understanding what we should stop, start, and continue doing is a critical part of our journey.

    All feedback is NOT created equal though and research tells us that Black women are less likely to receive the kind of meaningful feedback we need in order to improve our skills so we can get to the next level.

    Join me in this episode as I dive deep into how important good feedback is, and how you can take control of the conversation so you can demand the kind of feedback that will help you take your career to the next level.
