S2E30 - How Your Spoken Words Can Speak Beyond Your Words (with David Bianchi)
David Bianchi, poet, actor, philanthropist, just to name a few, joins us on this episode to talk everything from making history in the NFT space, as the first spoken word performance poet to create an NFT. Unfamiliar with what an NFT is and how powerful of a currency it is? No worries, he shares all of the details during our conversation.
But David doesn't just stop there. His "spinema" of "I Can't Breathe" has reached millions and has reshaped how we fuse poetry, art, cinema, social consciousness and our words into a true artform to make money, while impacting community. 100% of the proceeds of his "I Can't Breathe" piece will benefit The George Floyd Foundation and his aim is to raise $150K more dollars for non-profits by December 31, 2021 to pour into the communities that each "spinema" profits.
In today's episode, COACHING leaves you with an exercise of "soul work" called The Circle of You. We look at limiting beliefs and relate them back to the power that our thoughts and our words have and how you may be able to look at them a bit differently. COCKTAILS celebrates the amazingness of who you are and reminds you of the affirmation that you are greatness where you stand. Own it and own the words that you say to yourself and to others. CONVERSATIONS are where you hear David Bianchi share stories of when he was young and how words shaped him, a bit of inspiration to leave us motivated to action, what he feels is a barrier that still faces him today and his 4 minute, 50 second, power piece of work called, "I Can't Breathe."

S2E26 - Dear Meghan Markle: A Thank You to the Women Everywhere Standing in Their Power (with Lolita E. Walker)
"Dear Meghan" is not only the title of my powerful poem that I share at minute 15.59, but it is also a celebration of one of the Power Women that I am calling out as a woman making history as we speak, specifically for walking into fear with courage by her side. How often do we struggle to do that?
Lemmie ask you this. How often do you truly pause and "see" those around you for who they are and what they are bringing to the table? How often do you acknowledge the hurt that you and others may be holding on to? How often do we gift folks the flowers they deserve in this moment?
This episode is a celebration and thank you to the women everywhere who are making history and standing in all of their power. Listen in and grab a few things to shift differently.
In this episode, you'll grab a bit of COACHING, where I gift you 5 considerations to climb out of the B.O.X.E.S. that we are oftentimes place ourselves within, particularly as women, either by choice or by societal norms of expectations that threaten to bound us to the complacency of moments past.
Whether Power Women like Cori Bush, Gitanjili Rao, Stacy Abrams, Kamala Harris or YOUSELF, here is a reminder that you are greatness where you stand in this very moment. If you know a power woman to send this episode to for motivation, inspiration, affirmation and renewed action, please do not hesitate.
You leave with the affirmation that you are making history today so make it count.
