    (un)Qualified Episode 2: I Looked Up, and He Was Gone

    (un)Qualified Episode 2: I Looked Up, and He Was Gone

    At 20 years old, Natilie Williams received her Bachelors from Central Michigan University. At 22, she received her Masters in Communication from Illinois State University. Natilie graduated with both degrees without a dime of student loan debt! She currently travels the nation (virtually now, because COVID) inspiring students and other groups to lead with legacy, push through their circumstances and achieve even their wildest dreams. In this episode, we discuss her doctoral research on the "ghosting" phenomenon and what it means for black women and black sisterhood, in particular. While Ms. Williams's research focuses on the black community, it's worth noting that anyone who has fallen prey to or perpetrated ghosting (pulled a Caspar, as we like to say) will benefit from the discourse. We also discuss learning to extend grace to ourselves, so that we and those in our circle receive only the most healthy and whole version of who we are - topics she covers in her upcoming book Innerview: Lessons in Leadership, which will be available in November of 2020.  Connect with Natilie at www.natwillspeak.com or @NatWillSpeak on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.

    Episode 13: Discard Your Unhappy, with Maxine Reyes

    Episode 13: Discard Your Unhappy, with Maxine Reyes

    Maxine Reyes (@maxinereyestv) is an entrepreneur, coach, combat veteran, wife, mother and accomplished soloist. When it comes to transitions, she has certainly seen her fair share (and gleaned some valuable lessons along the way). Her metamorphosis was a long road that saw required a multitude of life adjustments. She came from Jamaica to the US as a young adult hoping to find her dream, before joining the US Military. She later transitioned from single life to dual military coupledom, to parenthood, and then from military member to veteran to businesswoman - and that’s just to name a few.

    Maxine has learned to approach each new echelon of life "with courage and grace" (Be sure to check out her podcast of the same name: https://www.facebook.com/courageandgracepodcast/), and has necessarily discarded timidity along the way. She’s, instead, learned to embrace her vulnerability, ability to compromise, as well as her indelible strength - especially as it relates to relationships of both the business and marital kind.  

    And, speaking of marriage, Maxine is also one half of Happily Joint (https://happilyjoint.com/), a venture started with husband, Ken, where their primary goal is to help couple "make happiness last". Maxine sat down with me for this DiscardIt Friday and we enjoyed an open and honest discussion about the the ways couples can find and re-establish happiness and commitment through relationship resiliency and how everyone can apply similar concepts to their work partnerships and entrepreneurial pursuits. 

    Want to connect with Maxine after the episode? Find her on Instagram at @happilyjoint, @maxinereyestv or @courageandgracepodcast.

    Episode 12: Discard Limiting Beliefs with Ashleigh Magee

    Episode 12: Discard Limiting Beliefs with Ashleigh Magee

    Your health extends to your mental mindset and requires that you discard limiting beliefs. Why is it that once we reach adulthood, we cease allowing ourselves to dream? If you believed anything was possible for you, what would you truly want? Live your life according to your dreams and your purpose. We talk about this and more with active duty Navy officer, dual-military spouse, and health coach, Ashleigh Magee. From leadership in the military, to showing up authentically for her clients, she’s had to discard the fear of doing the wrong thing and letting others down, and uses what she’s learned to help others make the connection between their physical and mental health. Connect with Ashleigh on Instagram at www.instagram.com/ashmagaeecoach on Facebook at https://m.facebook.com/AshleighMageeHealth or via her website at https://ashleighmagee.com/.

    Episode 11: Discard Darkness - You’ve Been Planted to Produce with Ticora Davis

    Episode 11: Discard Darkness - You’ve Been Planted to Produce with Ticora Davis

    Ticora Davis, Esq. is an intellectual property advocate, attorney, author, speaker, wife and mother of two. One moment in 2016 set her life on a course she never would have imagined for herself. After God pushed her to overcome a setback that many fear, Ticora shed the idea that she had been buried and, instead, firmly grounded herself and her future in the idea that God had planted her in the soil of success. It worked. Ticora is now known as The Creator’s Lawyer, has worked with brands like Black Enterprise, Rising Tide, VH1, Honeybook, and is hailed as a “thought leader” in the legal community. Her new book, Planted to Produce: 7 Shifts to Activate Your Creative Soul is a revolutionary take on procrastination, productivity, and purpose. Through it, Ticora uncovers the spiritual roots of procrastination, how fear is keeping you from pursuing your God-breathed destiny, and what you can do to push yourself to produce God’s greatness inside of you. 
    Ticora is also the creator of Business Bakerie. Founded in 2019, Business Bakerie puts the best legal tools and business training into the hands of up-and-coming business owners. Want to learn more about Ms. Davis and get connected to her and her endeavors? Start here:
