    EP. 97 It’s Gonna Be HARD QUEEN!

    When it comes to your epic shit, have you decided that it's going to be hard?

    I think we can all agree that accomplishing your epic shit is hard. It requires a great deal of self-responsibility and accountability. Not only that, but you have to be consistent in your new attitudes and behavior required to achieve your goals. 

    Starting and committing to your journey to your epic shit requires a lot of sacrifices.

    Yes, queens, it's gonna be hard, and when we say that what we are really saying is this should be easy, but what happens if you know it's going 10 times more difficult than you ever imagined and you accept that and move forward anyway?

    Listen in to hear how this change in your thought process can make a huge difference in your journey to your epic shit.

    EP. 95 Is your Love on Auto-Pilot?

    EP. 95 Is your Love on Auto-Pilot?

    In a world that keeps preaching on and on about self-love, it’s hard to believe that self-love is not easy. In fact, self-love, much like other forms of love, takes work, time, and patience to cultivate.

    We've been sold this bill of goods that says love should come easy and if you have to work for it, then maybe that's not love. Queens, I am calling BS on this. Listen, there's no autopilot for love. Self-love does not happen naturally and we must stop being judgmental and critical of ourselves based on this lie.

    So, why is it so hard to love ourselves? Why can’t we just believe the books and the experts that tell us we are so much more than we feel we are? Well, I don’t have all the answers to why practicing self-love is so hard, but I do have some ideas on how you can start to cultivate this practice. 

    Press play and listen as I share how to learn to trust, accept, and love ourselves.

    EP. 94 The Value of Coaching Series with Karen Livingstone

    EP. 94 The Value of Coaching Series with Karen Livingstone

    As high-achieving women of color, we know what it feels like to walk into a room and be the only one who looked like you. To be asked your opinion on a project that lacks diversity and inclusion. To frequently be asked to participate in conversations where the expectation is that your opinion speaks for all voices from your community. And not be able to talk about specific topics that are important to your culture because no one around you can relate from personal experience.

    This is true for our guest today, my coaching client Karen Livingstone. After accepting a promotion to a high-level executive position and being the only person of color on the team, she decided to seek out coaching specifically for her career. However, during the search, she decided to instead get support in a more holistic approach that would not only benefit her career but her life in general. 

    Listen in to learn how this decision has amplified her confidence, self-trust, positive mindset, and internal safety.

    EP. 93 Ready is not a THANG!

    EP. 93 Ready is not a THANG!

    Queen, are you waiting to level up when you feel ready? Are you waiting to solve for everything that can possibly happen before you take the next step?

    Listen, ready is not a thang! “Being ready” is a measure of whether we think we will fail or succeed at something, that is all. We can be the most prepped and primed version of ourselves and still not feel “ready” to take that next step. This is because readiness happens in our minds. 

    Don’t waste any more time waiting to be ready, press play to learn how to feel ready NOW and go after your epic shit.

    EP. 92 Paying Full-Price, WAT??

    EP. 92 Paying Full-Price, WAT??

    Hey guys! Welcome back to the podcast. This is a super quick message because I wanted to get it in its rawest form.  

    To explain this point I will use the example of a purchase. When it comes to making a purchase, we often get really excited when we are able to get the hook up on that purchase or obtain it from a sale. Notice that in this scenario you experience a dopamine hit. This is because getting the hookup creates a feeling of pleasure and reward, which motivates you to repeat a specific behavior. Here’s the thing, repeating this specific behavior can actually keep us stuck.

    So what would happen if we, as a people, normalize spending full price as much as we normalize getting the hookup the deal?

    Listen in to learn how normalizing paying full price benefits us and getting the hook up keeps us stuck.

Brig is the cool auntie

Listening to this show is like sitting around the kitchen table with family. Brig is the cool auntie, the well-traveled one, the educated one who gives the best, most honest advice.

There are a lot of life coaches, but if you’re looking for someone who truly understands where you are coming from, look no further. Brig is no-nonsense, in the most loving way.
