    Chapter 47-Lola of Geotraveler Media

    Chapter 47-Lola of Geotraveler Media

    Truly hope you enjoy and are inspired by this weeks episode with Lola.







    In this chapter, Lola tells us how spending time in various cultures and studying their nuances has helped her to create her own personal and family “superculture.” She shares with us how being an open minded traveler led her to try online dating in 2006, and what made her fall in love with her then long distance boyfriend. Lola gives global traveling women who are looking for a romantic partnership her best piece of advice. She talks about how we can create excellence outside of the rooms we’re supposed to be in, but believes it’s important to gain access to those closed doors since others are still creating our narratives and putting us in boxes. Lola says that asking herself and others “why not,” is the reason her life has unfolded the way it has. And she speaks to travel not being our passion, but the thing that helps to bring our passion alive.







    You can connect with Lola on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, or on her website. You can also sign up to hear when she launches her academy and support her photography work here.







    Here’s a proverb and a quote that came to Lola during our conversation:







    The sky is big enough for all birds to fly without touching each other.Yoruba Proverb







    Be the woman who fixes another woman’s crown, without telling the world that it was crooked.Unknown

    Chapter 46-Jumoke of Jay on Life and The Triple Cripples

    Chapter 46-Jumoke of Jay on Life and The Triple Cripples

    Truly hope you enjoy and are inspired by this weeks episode with Jumoke.







    In this chapter, Jumoke talks about moving to London from Nigeria at an early age, after having been diagnosed with polio. She started on the lawyer route in school, and even though she did well, she knew it was not for her. Jumoke shares how she switched to studying media before she told her parents, who in the end supported her decision. She glows about the guidance and foundation that her parents have given her to prepare her to succeed in her life. Jumoke discusses being told, and feeling like she wasn’t Black enough, why she has a fire to do all of the adventurous things she can now, and why she says she’ll never compromise herself when dating.







    You can connect with Jumoke on Twitter, Instagram, on her personal website or check out her work on Triple Cripples.







    This is a line of a poem that has been an inspiration to Jumoke:







    and you tried to change didn’t you? closed your mouth more tried to be softer prettier less volatile, less awake but even when sleeping you could feel him travelling away from you in his dreams“For women who are ‘difficult’ to love.” by Warsan Shire

    Chapter 45-Alise of Black Girl Travel Slay

    Chapter 45-Alise of Black Girl Travel Slay

    Truly hope you enjoy and are inspired by this weeks episode with Alise.







    In this chapter, Alise shares how she merged her love of travel with her studies by enrolling in travel abroad programs, and she gives tips on how to succeed to students who are interested in going that route. Alise talks about how her parents gave her the tools to build her mindset and how she’s been handling the changes with the virus, including having to reschedule a group trip she’s been coordinating. She also tells us about her career aspirations and her thoughts on the dating scene. Alise describes the journey of building her brand Black Girl Travel Slay, and how she’s had to deal with some online backlash from her community. She gets into her financial health being apart of her self-care, and has stories for days about her travels. Like that time she had a layover in Shanghai with a delayed flight, and had an altercation with a taxi driver, or that time she considered staying at an airport employees place instead of sleeping at the airport. Alise has also been intentional enough in her travels to mix traveling with studying her Muslim faith, and practicing Arabic.







    You can connect with Alise on Instagram, and be on the look out for her 2020 group trip to Bali.

    Chapter 44-Devin of ReadySetFro

    Chapter 44-Devin of ReadySetFro

    Truly hope you enjoy and are inspired by this weeks episode with Devin.







    In this chapter, Devin talks about traveling and working for the last eight years, and meeting her to be husband on her first stop. She talks about the culture in Costa Rica, and how making an effort to communicate in Spanish has helped her to create relationships there. Devin rewinds it all the way back to 2012, and describes the walk home that changed her life. Devin dishes about how she’s been able to be clear with herself to manifest how she wants to live her life as she continues to grow. Devin is passionate about making travel obtainable for everyone and the norm, which she says doesn’t always involve floating breakfasts in Bali, as often pictured in glamour travel feeds. We also talk about growing laterally by connecting with each other, so we can grow vertically as Black women travelers running around the world.







    You can connect with Devin on YouTube or Instagram. Devin is ready to get your brand poppin through her digital PR firm. You can hit her up on Instagram to connect.







    Devin likes the lyrics from this song:







    You told us we hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men and women are created equal; and that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; among these are life, liberty, and the—and the pursuit of happinessYoung, Black, wild and freeJanelle Monae “Crazy, Classic, Life”

    Chapter 43-Jeneva of Where is Neva?

    Chapter 43-Jeneva of Where is Neva?

    Truly hope you enjoy and are inspired by this weeks episode with Jeneva.







    In this chapter, Jeneva is being transparent about her journey financially, artistically, romantically, physically, and mentally. She talks about consciously healing generational trauma, while trying to make space for her own growth and joy and artistry. We chat a bit about the duality of being in the healing process and showing up fully in your gifts. Jeneva shares how the death of her father impacted her life, and how a bored afternoon with her mom and sister turned into her hosting paint and sips around the world.







    Jeneva is looking for support on her YouTube channel. Like, subscribe, and if you have something (constructive?) to say, comment.







    Jeneva loves neo-soul music. Some of her faves are Musiq Soulchild, Anthony Hamilton, and Erykah Badu.

    In this chapter, Amanda shares her journey from Detroit, Michigan to experiencing and leading plant medicine retreats with people from around the world.

Love what this podcast is about

I love listening to this amazing podcast! I love that it features women of color and their inspiring stories. Love hearing the different perspectives. I highly recommend it. Thanks for all you’re doing Ms. Wanda.

Grab a glass of wine, this podcast is legit!

I was invited as a guest on the podcast and thought I’d listen to a few to get a sense of the vibe. Well let me tell you, I am really loving Wanda’s laid back style. Each episode is like having a few girlfriends over and spilling all the travel tea. It’s real, unscripted, and sooo down to earth. Each guest feels like a friend by the time you’re done listening. This is definitely going into my rotation.

Love what this podcast is doing

Wanda asks insightful questions that aren’t just reading from a script. The conversations that are had in this podcast are organic and inspiring and the women that she interviews are incredible. I’m so glad I found this podcast.
