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!
Pandemic Fatigue featuring Dr. Rheeda Walker
Are y’all tired like I am? I’ve found that this pandemic has slowed me down and made tasks more of a chore than usual. I think we might be experiencing Pandemic Fatigue. Dr. Walker shares her gems and provides some solutions on how to move forward.
I'm Still Here
It’s been a lil bit, you’re right. Things have been beautifully busy. It felt good recording again and I look forward to being back more often. I’ve learned some things about selfcare, entrepreneurship, and myself along the way.

Closing Out 2020
2020 has been INTENSE. I’ve learned a lot and have been challenged in ways I hadn’t anticipated. I’ve also been doing a great deal of work behind the scenes to provide more emotional wellness resources for us Black Entrepreneurs. We made it y’all.
Graduate Student Mental Health featuring Dr. Marvette Lacy
Graduate school, professional school, medical school will take a toll on your mental health. It can even seem impossible to imagine life once you have your degree. Dr. Lacy shares her story and how she’s helped others craft healthy Black businesses.
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.
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.
