    Ep 107. [REWIND] How to walk away from a career that isn’t right for you, with 7-figure sales coach Jasmine Green

    This week we are taking it back to one of my favorite episodes with business coach Jasmine Green. 

    A huge part of Jasmine's story is that she gave up an opportunity to go to Medical School.  She realized it just wasn’t right for her.  Just as quickly as Jasmine made that decision, she went from a path of financial and professional security as a doctor to starting over from scratch.

    Jasmine went through a turbulent time trying to figure out what she was meant to do.

    Ep 106. You're procrastinating and you don't know why

    In this week's episode, we are diving into procrastination and how it affects us in our day-to-day lives. We all procrastinate, and it's not for the reasons you think.

    We've heard the stories about it being in our nature or the fact that we work better under pressure.

    BUT...

    Studies show that the real reason for procrastination actually has to do with our emotions.

    Ep 105. How to grow your brand as an influencer with Aisha Beau Johnson

    This week we are speaking with Aisha Beau Johnson, Digital Content Creator, and Influencer. Aisha specializes in beauty, wellness, travel, and mental health. 

    In 2016, after being stopped on numerous occasions by fellow women of color inquiring about her makeup and skincare routine, Aisha decided it was time to create her own platform. AishaBeau.com originated as a beauty blog, but slowly manifested itself into a digital destination covering self-care as a whole.

    Ep 104. [REWIND] Black Women and the anxiety of impostor syndrome: Why we get it and how to deal with it

    Ep 104. [REWIND] Black Women and the anxiety of impostor syndrome: Why we get it and how to deal with it

    This week I decided to take it back and rewind the chat all about Impostor Syndrome and how it shows up in our lives and businesses especially. Impostor syndrome is something that I’ve dealt with in my previous career, as a wife, and in my current business. You would think that because I’ve had so much success, that I’d have it all together but sis that is the furthest thing from true!
