Protecting Our Legacies: Estate Planning 101 for Black Families w/ Jala Eaton
Raise your hand if you felt triggered by the character Molly's journey on HBO's Insecure (Season 5) in trying to help her parents through estate planning and they were just not having it?! Oh, the resistance. The invincibility. I meannn... It's me, lol... I'm the person who was triggered. But on a serious note, more than 70% of Black Americans don't have a will. We've heard the stories of celebs like Chadwick Boseman, Aretha Franklin and Prince not having estate plans in place, but what about our own families? The implications of this mean we're, as a whole, missing out on the largest wealth transfer in history. So grateful for Jala Eaton, a generational wealth expert and Founder of On My Own Financial and J. Eaton Law, PC., whose on a mission to empower black communities across the nation to build and protect their wealth in non-traditional ways. As a writer, professor, award winning certified trust and fiduciary advisor, and trust and estates attorney in California, Jala's mission is to close the racial wealth gap. She was so gracious to join me on this episode to share the tip of the iceberg of what it looks like to begin the estate planning process, how to navigate these difficult conversations within the family, why it's so important to plan before something happens and so much more.

The Stories We Tell Ourselves About Ourselves w/ Dayana Cadet
Anyone else ready to break up with the parts of their personal narrative that keep you playing small and not standing in the power of all that you are? **raises hand** I enjoyed every minute of my conversation with Certified Clarity Coach Dayana Cadet, Founder of I See You Sis. On this episode we talk about limiting beliefs, where they come from, and how to overcome them. Dayana also shares what her personal journey was like going from a self-proclaimed "shy" person to a professional speaker. If you're ready to take an honest look at the way you think and feel about yourself, and lay to rest any perspectives you've held about yourself that no longer serve you, this is a must-listen.

We got a chance to talk about the benefits of physical fitness, managing the resistance to consistently being active, and the connection between the physical and mental aspects of ourselves. We also chatted about Oyah's personal experience with sound therapy and the power it has in healing from the inside out.
