Do you struggle with pursuing your purpose? Is your purpose unclear? Are you a goal getter that faces obstacles, roadblocks or gets stuck sometimes? I get it and I’ve been there. Trying to please people or meet expectations (of others or your own) can cause you to become paralyzed on pursuing Your purpose because it not longer becomes about what you have been created to do but what you think others expect of you. So if you’re like me you’ve pursued a career that’s unsatisfying or a relationship that’s incompatible or you’ve lost your faith due to outside influences. It’s time to push past that!
Welcome to the Pushed Into Purpose Podcast, where your host Carla George will inspire you the Goal Getter to push beyond the fears, challenges and doubts that may arise from time to time and into a life God has purposed for you. Tune in every Monday for a new episode (because here Mondays are the new Fridays!)
Ep 69. | SZN 2 | Creating a purpose led brand with Jolie Noire
Do you want to know what it takes to create a purpose led brand? Sisters Keyondra Lockett and Kimberly Lockett share their experience of transitioning from #1 Billboard Artist and Celebrity Stylist, respectively to now the owners of the clothing brand Jolie Noire. They share how representation was so important to them in fashion that it was the catalyst behind the brand.
The idea behind the brand/statement Jolie Noire, is that black is beautiful. Jolie Noire stands for Pretty Black in French. We are primed to think dark colors (specifically black) are negative and light colors are positive. In an effort to level the playing field, we're working to shape the minds of onlookers and change the meaning, emotions, and values associated with black. Color is something that doesn't come pre labeled, we label it... At Jolie Noire we choose to believe that black, like other colors, is beautiful!
Their leading scripture is:
I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, I know that full well. -Psalm 139:14

Ep. 66 | SZN 2: Is it okay to make a profit from my purpose?
One question that I get asked often is "Is it okay for Christians to profit from their purpose?" And the short answer is absolutely yes! But of course my challenge is convincing Christians to dispel the belief that Christians cannot be financially successful. In this episode I address 3 mindset blocks that are keeping Christian entrepreneurs from succeeding in their business and counteract that with 3 mindset changes you can use to help you flourish in business as a Christian entrepreneur.
First we set the stage with this mantra developed from the definition of 'purpose' and 'profit':
The reason why you do what you do is to have an advantageous gain to benefit the kingdom.
If you are ready to take your business to the next level apply to work with me in my Purpose to Profit: Business Deep Dive Strategy Program.
Ep. 65 SZN 2: Purpose Into Profit - I've Pivoted, now what?
We are in SZN 2!! This season we are going beyond our povot to exploring how we can turn our purpose into profit. So last season we talked about how we can Pivot into Purpose which ended with the Pushed Into Purpose Summit that addressed how we pivot in our faith, relationship, careers, business and mindset. It was amazzzinng!!! If you missed it no worries it is still available by checking out the link below.
On this episode I give a brief summary about the summit and then answer the question...now what?? Now you've made that pivot we are in the season of executing and seeing exactly how our purpose can benefit the kingdom by benefiting others and ourselves.
Listen to how I do a case analysis on Jesus' last days on earth and how he carried out his purpose on purpose! When it is your time to execute do it with the right strategy and intentionality. Many times we just want to move ahead with no guidance and no strategy. And while yes this will get you going it won't really keep you going. So what is your action plan? I formed what I term 'Jesus' 10 part strategy' to help you move into your new season. Which steps will you implement right away?

REWIND Ep 23. |Pulse check! Achieving your Goals vs Setting Goals
I thought it was appropriate to do a rewind of this episode as we come to the end of the first quarter of 2021. Research shows that 80% of people quit their New Year's resolutions by mid February. I want to do a pulse check with you to ensure we are at the stage of achieving our goals versus planning our goals. I address 3 steps to ensure we are goal achievers:
1. Create your purpose statement
2. Take small steps in executing your goals
3. Create boundaries around your goals
