    Episode 26: Gia Peppers

    What a perfect way to end out FTG season 2 with this conversation with Gia Peppers.  Gia is an entertainment journalist/on-air talent (you may have seen her on NBC's The Today Show, Essence, BET, VH1, etc)  and fellow podcaster on Black Girl Podcast and More Than That with Gia Peppers.  Gia and I dive into Gia's path to being a journalist, Black women in media, how Gia  stays motivated and how she battles negative self-talk by what she calls "watering herself".   Gia also shares her vision for social justice, the power of her faith  and why community is vital to professional and personal success. 

    Leave this Feel the Good conversation feeling motivated to follow your passion, feeling ready to follow the signs and feeling inspired to believe in yourself.

    Episode 24: Danielle Bayard Jackson, Friendship Coach/Friend Forward

    Episode 24: Danielle Bayard Jackson, Friendship Coach/Friend Forward

    I absolutely loved diving into chatting friendship and relational dynamics with friendship coach from Friend Forward, Danielle Bayard Jackson. Want to figure out how to deepen your friendship bonds, understand when to "opt in and opt out" of a friendship and when to check in with yourself when it's time for a friendship to end? Then, this FTG conversation is for you.  Listen as we discuss ways in which communication is key, how conflict resolution is sometimes the answer and what are the three essentials for a friendship to thrive. 

    Leave this conversation feeling hopeful about friendship, feeling inspired to create deeper bonds and feeling motivated to make new friends.

    Episode 21: Lily Womble, Date Brazen

    Episode 21: Lily Womble, Date Brazen

    Dating as an act of self care.  It sounds strange doesn't it? I don't think I would ever think of dating in that way, but meet Lily Womble, former top matchmaker and dating coach who firmly believes that not only should we start thinking of it like that, but in fact, dating should feel good.  In this conversation, we chat strategies and ways in which single women can build successful, fulfilling and joyful dating lives on their own terms and ways in which we can all give ourselves the permission to be the leaders in our own lives. 

    Get ready to start asking courageous questions, getting comfortable with what you want and pursuing joy in your relationships.  Leave this Feel the Good conversation feeling empowered, feeling confident and feeling liberated.

Feel the Good is Back!!

We have two episodes of Feel the Good after it’s hiatus and Shawl’s comeback game is so strong! The first two episodes have been incredible! The chats will have you in tears, laughing and leave you totally inspired. The world needs more selfless people like Shawl. People whose mission is to inspire other people. She embodies kindness and is just such a joy! We are still rooting for you Shawl! Keep up the good work, thank you for the work you do!
