Living In Color (ft. Libby Rasmussen)
My guest today is Libby Rasmussen. While most of us were nestled in a nook during the pandemic, Libby had the idea to lighten the mood by adding sparkle to her routine in the form of a disco ball, which garnered the attention of the New York Times. What began as a conversation with a fellow creative turned into an intriguing look into Libby's future self. In the mist of simply being herself, Libby gained thousands of followers and became an influencer by showing the world via social media the things that interest her most. She isn’t afraid to show all the cool things that she’s learning on her journey in life and taking people along on her exploration is what motivates her. Libby takes it up a notch with her style which is a mix of feminine, urban chic, topped off with a touch of nostalgia. Building upon the legacy that came before her, Libby wants to continue the legacy of giving and showing kindness. She explains how she was a planner and had expectations, but now she’s learned to not limit herself and to trust the process. Libby admits that she lacks consistency when it comes to self-care but once she is on her self-care game she commits to being in complete silence and unplugging so that she can reset. Libby has no problem pressing the pause button on people in her social media feed to protect her peace, which I think we should all try. Tune in to hear more from Libby. www.simonevivian.com
Living In The Present (ft. Joy Pratcher)
My guest today is Joy Pratcher. Joy has ascended from working corporate law, entertainment law, and as a sports agent to owning lucrative businesses. Joy is a wife and mother to two daughters, and shares that her life is better than she ever could have imagined. During our conversation Joy shared how she has relinquished her attachment to tomorrow, and insists on living in the present. In succumbing to a less rigid lifestyle during the pandemic, Joy had a deep desire to change the way she was showing up in her daughter's lives. Joy explained that putting family first and work second has been the best decision she’s ever made. Joy admits that marriages are difficult, but credits her husband for being supportive, and allowing her to pursue different ventures. They parent collaboratively, each with their own style, however, it’s the unit that makes everything work. While everyone has a fantasy of what their life could be, living in life’s reality is what gives us character. Turn in to hear from a dynamic woman with enlightening perspectives.
Pull Back The Layers (ft. Sahar Bitaraf)
My guest today is Sahar Bitaraf. Sahar works in the ever evolving tech world. Similar to her industry, Sahar is ever evolving into a beautiful talented woman; walking in her confidence and holding court in rooms where she is one of few. During our conversation, Sahar shares her journey into the tech industry; and how she had to navigate her path to eventually gain the respect of those that doubted her. She explains that having to prove herself never impacted her ability to succeed, it only fed her drive and ambition. Sahar shares the many sacrifices she's made to get where she is. She has a new POV on life. She now realizes that relationships with family and friends don't run themselves, they take work and she wants to focus more of her attention on both. Sahar is unconcerned how people view her. Others' opinions don’t give Sahar validation, winning does. Tune in to hear from Sahar. www.simonevivian.com

I'm thrilled to introduce today's guest to you, Kara Sax. Kara is a fellow Howard alum whom I have admired from afar for awhile, and it's my honor to have her as my first conversation of 2022.

She's the co-creator along with her husband and director of the highly popular show Black Love, and After Love as well as the host of, My New BFF podcast. During our conversation, Codie shares how she landed in the directors chair. When asked what inspired her to talk about love and focus on black love; Codie said, "I've talked about love, forever, always, my whole life." Her reply, was in itself, a proclaiment of love. She is in fact, in love with love. Codie defines her peace as knowing when and where to give her energy. She explains that while her company is on a fast trajectory, she is reminded that "one must slow down, to speed up", and taking time to reset is a must. Codie's growth mindset is her belief that she is worthy. Codie is very clear about what she wants out of life and has a vision for her family.

She shares how her role as a stay-at-home mom motivated her to start something of her own."We take time for granted until it's in jeopardy" Ceta says, when asked about the importance of taking inventory of those that surround her. My takeaway was: When you realize you only have one life, you'll realize the importance of letting go of bad relationships, friends you've outgrown and other things that interfere with your growth.
