    S1E17 - Ladies, It's Your Season to TILT (with Sha'meca Latai)

    S1E17 - Ladies, It's Your Season to TILT (with Sha'meca Latai)

    This special episode is focused on The Ladies!  with a simple message:  IT IS YOUR SEASON!  For my faithful 10% male listeners, you are always welcomed, HOWEVER be sure to also pass this along to the power women in your life!  What if I were to tell you this is your season? 
    On this episode, I leave you w/ four strategies on how you can begin to TILT you into your season.  I share my favorite piece of every season and I challenge you with the question, "how do you feel in each of these four seasons?"  IT IS YOUR SEASON because you are a compilation of them all.  Let’s TILT into 20201 with intention. 
    What if:

    Tomorrow was not promised
    "I am" was at the foundation that you stood upon
    Laying down your hurt and leaving it at the bus stop was something you were willing to do TODAY?
    Telling your narrative was on your own time and terms because you were able to recognize that in your season, you AND others were growing?  

    How would you tilt differently into your days? weeks? months? and years? 
    From nuggets such as the “uncommon woman,” which part of your truth will set you free, checking on your "poverished mindset,” standing in your gifts, and generational stigmas that may no longer serve you, we hit on so many aspects of you!

    S1E15 -My Road to 43 Years Old - Turning The Table (with Carla B & 52 Friends)

    S1E15 -My Road to 43 Years Old - Turning The Table (with Carla B & 52 Friends)

    There are moments in your life that simply take your breath away..in a good typa way!  This is one of them. Imagine being still while 52 others gift you feedback or share tidbits to you, about you.  Imagine their words being intertwined into the story that you are simultaneously telling of yourself, through a powerful interview, conducted by a close friend. Sounds uncomfortable right? 
     
    Imagine pointed questions, some of which make you feel vulnerable & others that have you talk aloud of your wins.  It’s my true journey to 43 years old and I am sharing the ups, downs, twists, and turns.  It was during these moments that I finally felt what Grandma Bea meant when she said, " you must find a way to smell your roses while you are here on this earth."  I must say that I am soooo grateful for each of you!
     
    In this episode, we talk fears, tears, my lowest moments, highest pinnacles, barriers still before me, how I've coped with grief and of course, I made a bit of time to celebrate wins in the midst of it all.  This episode turns the tables, in this unconventional year of 2020, for my 43rd birthday, where I'm being interviewed instead of being the interviewer. AHHHHH!! Are you ready? I sure am.

     


    Confession: Recording and editing this eqpisode was such an emotional and fulfilling experience. Originally intended to feature clips of 43 listeners to help me celebrate 43 years of life, I included 52 of you, who left me the most amazing, heartfelt, & genuine messages! THANK YOU for taking the time. It means sooo much for so many reasons.
     
    Here are 52 minutes for 52 folks & an interview-style story.  I LOVE IT!  and guarantee there are still nuggets for you to grab and apply to your everyday + times when you will grab a few laughs as well.


     


    Thanks for being a part of my journey.
    I appreciate you,
    Lolita

    S1E12 - How Adversity Can Help Find Your Purpose (with Chef Keesha O'Galdez)

    S1E12 - How Adversity Can Help Find Your Purpose (with Chef Keesha O'Galdez)

    Chef Keesha O'Galdez shares how adversity helped find her purpose.  When two Simmons Graduate School of Management grads get together, we have some good ole-fashioned conversations.  Today, we are having a bit of fun and leaving you with a few nuggets and experiences that you may be able to relate to.  From losing a job to moving to a new city, to hearbreak, then leaping into your purpose, we talk it all!  There's even an aha that stuck out, as I travelled down memory lane, to my Simmons days.  It had me giving a shout out to Dr. Stacy Blake-Beard, whose leadership course helped me find aspects of my inner voice that were simply waiting to be unleashed.
    You wouldn't know it now, but Chef Keesha didn't initially know that gifting people joy through her cooking was her purpose. It was through adversity that she discovered that .. this is it!  The thing is .... most of us are no different. Have you conqured adversity in your life?  Hmmmmm. I am sure the answer is absolutely.  If I were to ask you how you define purpose, what would you say?  Do you believe that you have discovered YOUR purpose? It’s not uncommon for the answer to the latter question to be "not really." Just know that you are not alone. On this episode, I’ll share four considerations when traveling your path that may be plagued with adversity, we'll have a few laughs & celebrate a few wins!The affirmation, from Walker & Walker Enterprises, that kicks off this episode is " I am choiceful in creating the footprints on my journey."  We will challenge that today.  You can grab your 40-card affirmation deck at https://www.lolitawalker.com/shop. 
    We start our intro (minute 1:14) and hear from our sponsor, Southern Elegance Candle Company (with a special promo code specifically for listeners of the Coaching, Cocktails, & Conversations podcast (minute 4:38).  We quickly jump into our first layer of coaching (minute 5:42), where I gift you soul work that takes you on a path of adversity with breadcrumbs and a light hahah #imaginethat.  We, then, celebrate cocktails (minute 18:27) with chers to you and all of your greatness!  And finally we end with a great conversations (minute 23:14) with Chef Keesha and I, who then drop some fire nuggets for you to walk away with.

Powerful, Empowering and NEEDED

Lolita’s message and work in the world is so needed. I love how intentional she is with her daily affirmations, how generous she is with her knowledge and how empowering she is with her belief in not only herself but in ALL of us! Highly recommend tuning in, opening your heart and welcoming her powerful and much needed voice into your life.

This is exactly what EVERY sister needs!

In times of uncertainty and hardship, this is exactly what women on color need, inspiration and affirmation! Thank you Soror Lolita Walker for telling every black woman, despite their trails and tribulations, they are worthy and belong!! From these podcast, two things are evident; walk in your purpose and always show up, unapologetically YOU!
