    How To Be Intentional For Your Mental Health with Tiffany Ellis

    How To Be Intentional For Your Mental Health with Tiffany Ellis

    Tiffany Ellis is the Creator of Pods & PR and Owner of Perennial Resolutions. She’s been a leader for over a decade for a number of Fortune 500 organizations before stepping out to build the platform known as Pods & PR. She is skilled at career mapping, mentorship, development planning, interviewing, teaching, training, speaking and all things leadership and development. She is also a natural motivator of people and incredibly passionate about leading people to connect with their life's purpose.
    Tiffany and I start today’s conversation by talking about how and why she founded Pods and PR, which is like a book club for podcasts! Then we take some time to discuss mental health. July is Minority Mental Health Awareness Month. Mental health conditions do not discriminate, but background and identity can make access to mental health treatment much more difficult. I’m honored to have Tiffany on to talk about why minority mental health is so important, the struggles we face, and how we can create change.

    Amplifying Melanated Voices Because #BlackBusinessesMatter

    In this episode, I wanted to bring together Black female entrepreneurs that are making waves of change right now as we fight against the injustices against Black people in America and all over the world. As a Black woman myself, I feel all of this so deeply and knew I needed to speak up. Speak up to let other women of color know that I hear them and also speaking up to inform my non-Black listeners on ways they can be allies in this movement and beyond to create more inclusive communities in the entrepreneurial space.

Kimmiecush ,

This podcast brings me soooo much joy!

I love how Natasha is just always being herself and she talks about topics that people usually shy away from...she goes beyond the surface and her guests do too...really loved the episode with Natty Valencia where they both shared what being an entrepreneur is really like behind all the hype and how to practically keep yourself focused and still enjoy your business. I think this is a podcast I’ll be listening to for years to come. Thanks Natasha! 😊
