Minding My BLACK Business is a podcast exclusively for Black Entrepreneurs who are looking to engage, inform, and support other Black Entrepreneurs as they manage the business of work!
Working for someone else can be hell. As Black Entrepreneurs we can experience being targeted, feeling taken advantage of, or worse being made to feel invisible. Yet the road to self-employment for us isn’t easy. It’s filled with hurdles, such as identifying your audience, managing others' racial biases, while remaining dedicated to your vision and your products.
Where do you turn when you’ve experienced self-doubt? How do you manage stress and worry that stalls your projects? When is it a good time to step back and address fear about what you’ve created? Well this is THE SPACE; this is OUR SPACE as Black Entrepreneurs to get those needs met. This movement is both professional and oh so personal. I’m glad you’ve found us. Welcome to the family!

    133. I'm Not in This Alone featuring Andrew Jatau

    I called in my business accountability buddy for this one. In working on business self-care, it’s always a good idea to get support.  Andrew and I discuss what we’ve learned about ourselves in this stage of our businesses and what areas of our selfcare need improvement. We both took the selfcare assessment and implemented strategies in the selfcare workbook to address our selfcare needs. Check out our selfcare workbook!

    SelfCare is Non-Negotiable

    SelfCare is Non-Negotiable

    I had a rough week with the business. There were some missteps and plans that failed. After a couple of days, I had to fight to improve my mindset, focus, and confidence. My fight included a reset, making use of my self care regimen to address the anxiety I was experiencing. I want us all to have the tools and resources we need to manage. Check out our assessment and workbook!

Phenomenal podcast

This is so timely! My only piece of helpful feedback is a suggestion to lower the music on episodes, it’s a little difficult to hear your awesome show in the first few minutes. Looking forward to listening to more episodes.

Ms. LHP ,

Should you choose a Black therapist

Dr. Taylor: I’m a first time listener & a Black woman in therapy for depression w/a relatable Black therapist. I welcome the counsel in this episode & found it quite relevant & helpful. I’m so glad that we Black people are rejecting the stigma related to seeking help for mental health issues. Thanks for your perspective.

This is an amazing podcast

The podcast is just as good as the name. Dr. JaNaè is an amazing host, she has a lot of great guests on her show. I really respect that it's a platform for black people in business, that is so important. I love that the show is very honest and down-to-earth; it's like friends sitting and talking about business.
