    ZANZIBAR - a Story of Motivation

    ZANZIBAR - a Story of Motivation

    Hey guys! Join me on my couch but this time we are in Zanzibar. ARE YOU READY TO TAKE THE COUCH?

    I have a guest tonight. His name is Nabil, owner of Karafuu Coffee House. He lives in Zanzibar but was born in Oman, an Arabian country located in southwestern Asia. It is situated on the southeastern coast of the Arabian Peninsula, and spans the mouth of the Persian Gulf.

    FROM WIKIPEDIA: 

    Zanzibar was famous worldwide for its spices and its slaves. During the 19th century, Zanzibar was known all over the world in the words of Petterson as: "A fabled land of spices, a vile center of slavery, a place of origins of expeditions into the vast, mysterious continent, the island was all these things during its heyday in the last half of the 19th century.[10] It was the main slave-trading port of the African Great Lakes region, and in the 19th century as many as 50,000 slaves were passed through the slave markets of Zanzibar each year.[11] (David Livingstone estimated that 80,000 new slaves died each year before ever reaching the island.) Tippu Tip was the most notorious slaver, under several sultans, and also a trader, plantation owner, and governor. Zanzibar's spices attracted ships from as far away as the United States, which established a consulate in 1837. The United Kingdom's early interest in Zanzibar was motivated by both commerce and the determination to end the slave trade.[12] In 1822, the British signed the first of a series of treaties with Sultan Said to curb this trade. Under strong British pressure, the slave trade was officially abolished in 1876, but slavery itself remained legal in Zanzibar until 1897.[7]

    Mental Health & the Music Industry Coach Keisha Jackson

    Mental Health & the Music Industry Coach Keisha Jackson

    Tonight I am on the couch with Keisha Jackson, the daughter of the sassy, legendary BOSS lady, Millie Jackson. I remember my parents playing Ms. Millie Jackson's albums and how defying her album covers were. When I learned that Keisha too is a singer and a BOSS, I had to talk to her. You know how they say, the apple doesn't fall far from the tree? Well, the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Keisha Jackson is a BOSS lady like her mama. Keisha began singing professionally at age 15 as a background vocalist for her mother. She went on to record two albums with Sony Records and has contributed vocals on recordings with iconic artists like Aretha Franklin, Toni Braxton, Whitney Houston, Kaiser Chiefs, Erasure, Da Brat and others. She has toured with rap music icons Outkast, Erykah Badu, Angie Stone, George Clinton, Faith Evans, Raphael Saadiq, Yacht Rock Revue (current), and more.
    My biggest pull to Keisha is her love for mental health and wellness. She’s also a certified life coach and a well-respected industry vocal coach. In her role as a vocal coach, she is counseling her clients and supporting their mental health journey, though she may not know it ;) 
    She continues to manage her vocal coaching agency, One Voice Entertainment which she conceived in 2001.
    Join us on the couch as she shares her story and drops MANY gems.
    Here's her website: https://keishajackson.com/
    Follow her on IG = @KeishaJackson

    Semper Fi!

    In honor of Veterans Day, I am interviewing Candyce Haynes, a former Marine and now comedian. 

    Meet Comedian Candynce Haynes-Forrester. Candyce Haynes-Forrester, is an American comedian, professional speaker, broadcaster, producer, host and actress. She is known as the best of both worlds of motivational speaker and comedy. She first gained recognition for her work in professional speaking working with her mentor Emmy Awarding motivational guru Les Brown. Candyce was also a member of the US Marines for four years. There have been women in the United States Marine Corps since 1918, and women continue to serve in the Corps. As of 2020, women make up 8.9% of total active-duty Marines. These numbers give the Marine Corps the lowest ratio of women in all of the U.S military branches. 

    She's brilliant, beautiful and funny. Please join us on the couch. Semper Fi!

    Live Until You Die

    Live Until You Die

    I am on the couch with Dr. Stephanie Anderson, MD, MBA, Board Certified Family and Emergency Medicine Physician.  

    FROM DR. ANDERSON: As a physician who was diagnosed with cancer at the most inopportune time, the peak of my career, immediately after the death of a young cousin, and while enduring a pandemic; I hope to propose a perception twister while walking through my own personal struggles and surrender to the unknown.We all experience traumatic events and life-altering experiences at some point, in one form or another. Since life does not always happen the way we desire or expect, sometimes we lose ground by disconnecting, abandoning, or resenting a divine intervention. We will learn how to be our best in the worst of situations, while using those circumstances as a springboard to become better rather than a death sentence for life as we hoped. We are offered an opportunity to move beyond our desires, expectations, past mistakes, environmental woes, hurts, and hang-ups; while embracing every moment of what has and is happening to us. The freedom will come when we choose to become triumphant rather than a victim in times of uncertainty and during the inability to control situations. It is possible to find purpose and fulfillment in the heart of life's battle, crawling or walking will propel you forward into your destiny. Just imagine, what if the worst thing ever could be turned into your passion for living life to the fullest every day!
