    Inclusivity: Revolutionizing Skincare and Amplifying Melanated Voices with Shah Granville

    Inclusivity: Revolutionizing Skincare and Amplifying Melanated Voices with Shah Granville

    Shah Granville and her organic, luxury skincare company, Sweet Curly Beauty are both pure radiance from the inside-out. I enjoyed so many aspects of this conversation that I’m finding it hard to put it into words how to summarize all of the magic that was shared in the course of an hour, but I’ll do my best…

    Shah does not shy away from the difficult topics of conversation and is very aware of the problems that people of color are facing in our world today. Shah Granville is an actor and producer, born and raised in Los Angeles, she holds a Bachelor of Arts from UCLA, studied Shakespeare at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, and the Sanford Meisner technique in Santa Monica. She holds both film and theatre credits, when she is not on set, she is busy advocating for children’s access to education and women’s empowerment through business literacy with various organizations around the world. Shah is also the founder of Sweet Curly Beauty, a skincare company that focuses on luxury, organic products and reintroducing Black Women into the conversation of skincare, and it is an honor to share her inspiring journey with you today.

    Shah is the fourth of five children in her family, she embraces her familial roots, describing it ever so beautifully as a tapestry of heroic women, resilient matriarchs, and mothers rich with spiritual intelligence that fostered their children’s creativity, a heritage holding seventeen generations of ancestral secrets, recognizing motherhood as a gift from God, and I could not agree more. Shah lovingly envisioned her future daughter, with skin the color of the earth and eyes like stars in the night sky; promising to show her where she comes from and teach her just how much she is loved, in hopes that she won’t take long to learn to love herself.

    That self-love that Shah describes meant freedom in her own life. Her journey to self-discovery has helped her to identify her values, the meaning of both her yes and her no, and the importance of self-care, beyond the surface of her skin; she focuses on being lit from within and radiating that light out in to the world. Shah believes that every woman should see herself when considering aspirational beauty, and through Sweet Curly Beauty, she is opening up the conversation of skincare to black women. It is no longer a ‘thank you for the invite’, rather black women have a seat at the table, and they should be the center of their Universe, and the Heroine of their story; Sweet Curly is that portal, the return to self.

    Shah identifies where the work can be done in order to better our world; adults need to be intentional in dismantling their own biases and decolonizing their bookshelves, systems of education and community funding. However, our children can be the generations of change through better exposure to diversity, as we amplify melanated voices and create value around people of color in business and communities, children will be able to grow up without having to overcompensate for this current state of lack. This is why a huge part of the vision for Sweet Curly Beauty, is to give back to our communities, because Sweet Curly cares; not only does she intend to be a household name, but one that creates a culture of mindfulness and self-love.

    Lastly, Shah reminds us to prioritize ourselves in order to reclaim our freedom, as women we play many roles in this world; it is important that we always keep a portion of our truest self with us in our back pocket, to know that she is there supporting us no matter what role we are playing in life.

    Perseverance: Beginning Again and the Healing Power of Hemp with Trina Johnson

    Perseverance: Beginning Again and the Healing Power of Hemp with Trina Johnson

    Trina Johnson is a Co-Founder of Blue Forest Farms and BFF Hemp, and she too is a Single Mom; she took the time to sit down with us and have a very transparent conversation surrounding many of the issues at play today. Trina broke into the Cannabis industry, as it was emerging becoming legalized, as a Colorado native it made sense; she saw this as a one and a lifetime opportunity to pave the way in world change. Cannabis has a very dark history and many people (of color) are still behind bars for their relationship to the plant, embodying an undeniably powerful energy and an abundance of healing properties, Blue Forest Farms has built their business structure around inclusivity. Trina believes that Hemp is the answer, and it will influence every industry out there and benefit the ways in which we live.

    As both a woman in business, and the mother of three Jamaican-American children, Trina has witnessed firsthand the roles that white-privilege has played in her life and the ways in which she can strive to make a difference in identifying and dismantling systemic-racism for her children, her company and her community. Trina does not shy away from the difficult conversation, and brings awareness to what most (white) people wouldn’t dare acknowledge as privilege. She bravely opened up to me about that awkward moments, which I too have experienced, when strangers assume that your child is adopted or you’re the hired help. Touching on raising black children in a white world, and ways in which she has supported her children in embracing the totality of who they are.

    Trina opens up about her divorce, the importance of understanding your love language and her excitement surrounding her second GO at life and love. She is a firm believer that we are here to create a life worth living, she trusts in the power of surrender, knowing full and well that she doesn’t need to force her way through anything, because she in fact, is guided and supported in every situation. Trina teaches her children that it is important that take ownership of your actions and apologize when someone has been hurt, because everyone’s actions are a reflection of themselves and not the person(s) they’re interacting with. When you can remember these lessons in the moment, it leaves room for grace and offers a softness that every situation needs. Trina reminds us that when you choose LOVE, you can’t go wrong!

    Anti-Racism: It's More than a Movement with Erica Jacobs

    Anti-Racism: It's More than a Movement with Erica Jacobs

    The only way to undo racism is to identify and describe it — and dismantle it. Anti-racism is actively taking action, and using our voice to dismantle white supremacy on all platforms; it’s far more than being “not racist”. It is identifying your own white privilege and admitting that you yourself are a part of the problem, it’s saying, “I will call attention to racism when I see it”, because calling things out as they truly are is liberating and it needs to be done.

    While I realize that this is a conversation that needs to be had with Black Teachers and Leaders, I also knew that right now the black men and women of this country are exhausted, not only by the treatment they’ve endured for centuries, but by the system that has cheated them time and time again, and the hundreds to thousands of well-meaning white folks wondering what they can do, what it’s like and how they’re feeling. I am dedicated to learning more from the lens of the Black Teachers that are already sharing so much, but I didn’t feel that right now was the time to put myself among the many others begging for podcast content from an already exhausted voice, no matter how powerful the message might be.

    I want to serve the black community but not from the place of white martyr or savior, I want to do so authentically and while I believe that it is important to hear more from Black, Indigenous and People of Color, especially those that are walking or have walked the journey of single-motherhood, I didn’t want add to their current state of overwhelm. And, maybe those are just the excuses that I’ve used to justify to myself why I haven’t stepped beyond the comfort level of featuring women I already know… So with that I decided to reach out to a friend, who although she is a white woman, she is a student of anti-racism, and a very vocal one at that. She studies a black advocate, educator and activist, so I thought she’d would be a good place for me to start, but this will definitely not be the one and only conversation had around this topic on this platform.

    As a survivor of sexual, verbal, psychological and emotional abuse, Erica has explored the deeper layers of trauma through the lens of Eating Psychology, 12-Step Recovery and Anti-Racism, all in an effort to discover what “hurt people hurt people” truly means on a cultural, historical and interpersonal level. An extroverted introvert, Erica can usually be found taking a mid-day long drive along the California Coast, accompanied by a great playlist and an even greater desire for truth, connection, sushi and plenty of alone time. She also has a knack for taking everything personally and dancing like everyone is watching.

    Being a white woman raising a mixed race child, I’ve constantly struggled, wondering if I am doing enough to help her to embrace both cultures from which she comes, and the truth is I’m not, the truth is I need to do more. With that, I thank you for joining me today to unpack an uncomfortable topic, identifying and learning ways in which I can dismantle my own white privilege in order to better serve my child and our community. I hope you listen in again soon as we continue to hear more from teachers, leaders and mothers, to expand our own stories as single-mothers and recognize what we can do to raise children that are both courageous, compassionate, and eager to build an all-encompassing world. Until next time...

    Emotional Super Powers: Empower a Child - Heal the World with Rachelle Castor

    Emotional Super Powers: Empower a Child - Heal the World with Rachelle Castor

    This week on Single Mom Tribe, I had to honor of sitting down with Rachelle Castor, author of Emotional Super Powers, a children's book that enables parents to empower and heal their children, who in turn will heal the world.
    Rachelle is a mother, grandmother and early childhood educator. She writes from the heart, both short stories and picture books for children and families. She has received multiple awards on the books that she has written, and today we are discussing Emotional Super Powers, her work with Pam Robinson, which received the Mom’s Choice Award in 2019.
    Rachelle’s next visionary step is to see that the tools of hope for humanity find their way into the hands, minds, and hearts of children in homes, schools, social and humanitarian organizations globally.
    Rachelle believes that “If we can teach children who they really are and give them tools to manage their dark thoughts and heavy feelings we can help them build resiliency before difficulties and afflictions cause disruptive damage. Where painful or harmful events have already taken place, these emotionally healing and inspiring truths will empower children in real ways to help them move out of the painful darkness and into the light.”
    Rachelle also believes [that our] children are the nearest thing to heaven [on earth]. It is through a collaborative voice of love, hope, and wisdom that our children and our world will heal, and as she shares these empowering techniques, she is offering us the tools to do just that. Unfortunately, not everyone knows where to turn to find such tools, and that is why I am beyond excited to sit down and speak with Rachelle today, because similarly, she has created Mom Squads, a supportive community, with her sights set to power up true heroes everywhere!

    Rachelle has teamed up with the Healing Hands Foundation to get the Emotional Super Powers books into the hands and hearts of as many children, parents and educators as possible! Today until April 30th - You can get the entire POWER PACKED PROGRAM - which includes the Book, Tips & Tricks Booklet, and the Online Training Program for a $40 Donation - x2 - GET ONE, GIVE ONE (GOGO)

A show all mothers can relate to

I learn, I laugh, I cry. Great show with guests that tell it how it really is!

LMC mom ,

Thank you

Thank you for this podcast! As a newly single mom of a 7 month old I appreciate the information shared on the episodes. I dealt with regret, shame, & rejection on this journey. It’s refreshing to hear that these are common feelings that other single parents feel.

teachermom123! ,

Motivated mom!

I typed up “single mom” and been searching for a transparent less “churchy” podcast to get through my single mom journey and was glad to hear my first podcast be so empowering and supportive! I hate that soooooo many of us have such a familiar story but I’m thankful through the pain, our strengths, our stories and our children can see how much we overcame and broke the cycle!
