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

    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.
    Dr. Rheeda Walker is an award-winning Professor of psychology, a fellow in the American Psychological Association and a leading scholar who has published more than 60 scientific papers on African American mental health, suicide risk, and emotional resilience. She is also a licensed clinical psychologist who prepares doctoral students for independent careers.
    Dr. Walker's impact has expanded beyond academia and she has quickly become a fan favorite with the release of her first book, The Unapologetic Guide to Black Mental Health. Delving into the heart of the Black experience, Dr. Walker debunks myths about mental health, builds the case for psychological fortitude, and delivers practical advice for use in everyday life. Her charismatic vision and practical approach to life’s challenges has led to numerous appearances on Good Morning America, The Breakfast Club, and NPR, among others. She is often quoted in major publications like the Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, the Huffington Post, GQ Magazine, and the Houston Chronicle.

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.
