    Being in Right Relationship with Your Marketing

    Being in Right Relationship with Your Marketing

    Do you have pieces of your business that just don’t feel right for you right now? If so - it’s okay to take a step back, my dear. It’s okay to take some space from something to get in right relationship with it. In today’s episode, I share how I am reevaluating the ways I show up in my marketing and how you can avoid capitalism’s trap of urgency by taking space from the things that do not feel in alignment for you right now.
    I’m digging into:
    How I am getting intentional with where and why I show up in my business Why I am stepping back from some of my marketing (and how to figure out if you need to do the same!) How to trust your intuition to guide your business marketing needs And more!

    Coming Home To Yourself & Your Stories w/ Akansha Agrawal

    Coming Home To Yourself & Your Stories w/ Akansha Agrawal

    Finding and connecting to our truth is deeply important for us as women and femmes of color - it gives us the freedom to do business in the revolutionary ways we crave. In today’s episode, I talk to embodiment and storytelling coach Akansha Agrawal, about reclaiming the narrative around who we “need” to be to find success in this world and how owning your truest self can help you step up as the leader you are truly meant to be. 
    We dive into:
    Rejecting the capitalistic standard of success and redefining how you measure success in your life and business How Akansha released herself from the trap of comparison and self-doubt The importance of creating from a place of safety and trust How connecting to her story and embodiment work helped Akansha become a better speaker and business owner A limiting belief about rest that could be holding you back from creating the life you want Why Akansha is focusing on South Asian voices and what she is doing to be able to hold a safe space for her community How to release yourself from the deep disempowerment narrative in the entrepreneurship space And so much more!

    It Gets To Be Easy w/ Leslie Tagorda

    It Gets To Be Easy w/ Leslie Tagorda

    You don’t have to search for it. The patriarchy doesn’t need to tell you what it is. The way you’re meant to operate, the way you’re meant to do business - the answers are already inside of you. In today’s episode, I talk to brand astrologer and designer, Leslie Tagorda, about how she built a revolutionary business by doing what she loves and how you can release the limiting beliefs around what your life and business “should be” so you can lean into a commitment to yourself and start calling in more ease and success (whatever that means for you!) into your life.
    We dive into:
    What led Leslie to her revolutionary business of combining astrology and design How she got stuck in comparison and copying for 15 years (and how she broke through!) Why the messaging around entrepreneurship is especially harmful for folks of color  The importance of a commitment to self when building a business or brand Being conscious of what success means to you (and why this is vital if you want to thrive!) Why it’s so important for us as women and femmes of color to create our own gateways to success And more!

    The Truth About Redefining Success

    The Truth About Redefining Success

    We’re told that once we make X amount of money in our business - we’ll be successful and we can finally rest and enjoy it. Truth is, honey, this is capitalist b******t. And if you are trying to do business in a revolutionary way, you will always be at odds with this idea. In today’s episode, I break down the “money is success” myth and walk you through the mindset tools you need to decolonize your business and redefine what success means for YOU. 
    I’m digging into:
    How to navigate your own version of success in a patriarchal and capitalist society Why running your business in integrity might mean slower growth (and why this is okay!) The MOST IMPORTANT thing to start with when running a revolutionary business Why you might be experiencing short-lived peaks in your business (and what to do about it!) What to do if you get triggered by comparison or the capitalist b******t How you could be holding yourself back from creating your own business strategy (and why you are totally capable of doing it!) And more!

You can do this while still honoring all of your intersectional identities and being the whole, authentic human you are.

    How VP supports businesses through her education and trainings (and why inclusivity is at the forefront!) Why VP has continued to share more and more of her identities with her community How gender expression can deeply impact the way we operate in business Why she hired support to build her business and how it helped her sell out her first launch! How she went from being homeless to hitting 100k in cash in less than 2 years! The concept of serving before selling and how it can help your business thrive How to keep healthy boundaries while still putting out consistent high-value content What the RIGHT kind of community can do for your business (and why this is SO important!)

    Urgent and Important

    Urgent and Important

    Here’s what I know, my dear - everything can wait. 
    Your business can wait. Your friends can wait. Your to-do list can wait. 
    But white supremacy culture wants you to believe otherwise! In today’s episode, I am digging into the concept of urgency, how harmful it is for us as folks of color, and what we can be doing to combat this so we can lead more revolutionary lives and businesses. 
    I am digging into:
    Why the lie of urgency is so deeply harmful for women and folks of color How you can start to decolonize time and deadlines in your life and business  Why urgency and intentionality DO NOT coexist How capitalism and white supremacy culture are steeped in urgency (and how to avoid getting swept up in this b******t!) What happens to you when you are surrounded by people who are run by urgency How you might be falling into the urgency trap in your business if you are looking for evidence of results What you need to start doing TODAY to live a more restful life And more!

allie🌿 ,

Love this podcast.

I’m a listener and learning to unlearn the pathology of whiteness. Thank you.

MsJeneeM ,

I LOVE Gieselle’s Honesty, It’s Refreshing!

The episode on dismantling the hustle mentality really made me take a look at my entrepreneurial journey and how a lot of it has been influenced by what I saw others doing vs what actually served me, my life and what I want. I love how Gieselle not only shares this message from a place of awareness but from a place of someone who has overcome and built a business she loves that complements who she is. And her voice is amazing btw.

kronda ,

This podcast is EVERYTHING

I’ve spent the entire weekend binging these episodes and they are giving me so much life! I can feel the decolonization happening with each listen. Whether solo or a with a guest, Gieselle has a way of pulling mining the gems from every topic. She makes me question the origins of my attitudes about marketing and business and dig deeper for what truly resonates with how I want to run my business. Every episode is a little more permission to say eff U to the patriarchy and YES to my intuition. Thank you for this gold.
