    Chapter 115-Nikki of Buy From a Black Woman

    Chapter 115-Nikki of Buy From a Black Woman

    Truly hope you enjoy and are inspired by this week’s episode with Nikki.







    In this chapter, Nikki starts us off talking about what a G her grandmother has been in her life. Her grandmother became a widow with six children, and Nikki says watching her taught her what it meant to use your gifts and talents as resources and turn them into money. She also glows about how fly the women in her family are and the characteristics they instilled in her.







    Nikki says through her work experience, she was being shown what she liked and what she didn’t like about working in the non-profit sector, and after being snubbed for a role, she attended an event that led her to creating Buy From a Black Woman. It started as a blog showcasing Black woman-owned businesses that she was hesitant to share publicly, and after receiving feedback from Black women, Nikki realized that she was on to something.







    Nikki believes that everything happens for a reason and that things are happening for her good, so she makes it a point to look for the lesson and the good in the events that happen in her life. She shares her thoughts on friends being for a reason and a season, and her thoughts on professional relationships as well, how she never compromises on centering Black women, and the breakup that sent her packing to Bali, Indonesia to connect with herself. Nikki also takes us back to when she attended Prince’s last concert in Atlanta, and the importance of whiskey and naps in her life as self-care and celebration.







    Connect with Buy From a Black Woman on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, and TikTok. And you can connect with Nikki on Instagram. When you connect with her, ask her what her theme song for 2022 is. Buy From a Black Woman is a non-profit and Nikki would welcome your donation here. She also admonishes you to buy from a Black woman!

    Chapter 114-Kim of Afro-Latino Travels

    Chapter 114-Kim of Afro-Latino Travels

    Truly hope you enjoy and are inspired by this week’s episode with Kim.







    In this chapter, Kim describes the life-changing and transformative relationship she had with her grandmother. Kim’s grandmother took her on her first international trip at seven or eight years old to Acapulco, Mexico. That trip set Kim on a path to exploring the world and studying three languages-Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish.







    In a short amount of time, you come to understand just how Kim stands squarely on the shoulders of those who came before her. Her reverence and awe for a people who did so much with little to no recognition shines through and galvanizes her to persist in her own work. Despite her experience in TV, Kim spent ten years advocating to get her TV series Afro-Latino Travels with Kim Haas off the ground. Her show highlights the historical and cultural contributions of the Black diaspora throughout Latin America. Her dream of airing her series finally came through October 2020 on PBS.







    Kim is very passionate about highlighting the resilience of Black people, the importance of Black representation on TV, and encourages us to support these Afro-Latinx communities when we’re traveling and if possible virtually by buying their products, shining a light on their work, and/or intentionally exploring ways to uplift their communities.







    Kim takes us back to the moment she was approved to produce her first two episodes of her TV show in Costa Rica and how she celebrated. She shares with us what her family means to her, how her daughter keeps her grounded, what it means to her to be a Delta , and what it’s like to work with tourism boards.







    You can support Kim’s work in many ways. Check out interviews on her website, invite her to speak at your school or organization, watch out for her fundraising campaign, and of course, watch her show, Afro-Latinos Travels with Kim Haas. She’d love for you to email her, and when you do, tell her what you think about her work!

    Chapter 113-Youmie of Flex-N-Fly

    Chapter 113-Youmie of Flex-N-Fly

    Truly hope you enjoy and are inspired by this week’s episode with Youmie.







    In this chapter, Youmie shares her earliest memory of migrating from Haiti to New York. She says the kids in school made fun of her for speaking three other languages- Creole, French, and Spanish in addition to English. Youmie tells us about the tender and precious relationship she has with her mother and describes how moving to New York impacted their relationship. She also gets into why she believes her sister is her soul mate.







    Youmie goes back to volunteer in Haiti and expresses why she feels survivor’s guilt for being able to leave the island. She’s done a lot of work to construct her mindset, feed her ambitions, and believes that her circumstances and travel have helped her to reach for her soul work.







    Youmie very much embodies being intentional and ethical about how she travels, which has included taking a break from Europe, and grounding in the community in Colombia where she got to know the people she hired to work on her business. We also talk about how tourists are often charged more than locals when traveling, and how that ties into capitalism.







    Youmie has created an in-flight wellness program and is working on having a physical space in several airports around the world. She’s also designed a travel yoga mat and a travel bag. She says she’s conscious about being in community with people who’ve helped her to build her brand and she discusses the power of seeing and understanding the people who support you. Shout out to Nikki Porcher of Buy From a Black Woman and Ashton August of Yogi Approved.







    Youmie wants you to say hi to her if you see her in person, and share her work and her yoga products. You can find her work on her website where she wants you to sign up for her newsletter and make a donation so she can buy bubble tea. You can also connect with her on TikTok, Facebook, or Instagram. And she also wants you to support the non-profit Buy From a Black Woman.
