    Unlocking Your Entrepreneurial Voice with Bethany Hawkins

    Unlocking Your Entrepreneurial Voice with Bethany Hawkins

    There are times when we put undue pressure on ourselves.  This may occur when we need to advocate for ourselves or when we are interacting with someone whose opinions we value.  We’ve found ourselves cracking a joke to get around an uncomfortable situation.  We've given advice that we don't apply to our own situation. Today on the show, Bethany Hawkins tells us how she found her entrepreneurial voice after dealing with the pressure and stress of being the only Black woman in the office. 
     
    Bethany Hawkins is the CEO and founder of Crackers and Soup, a podcast management company with a mission to assist women podcast hosts that need the best F word known in the English language… freedom. Since its inception in 2019, Crackers and Soup has worked on over 70 podcasts, from creating cover art to helping women create their podcast vision through launches.

    Unlocking the Power Shift with Anucha Browne

    Unlocking the Power Shift with Anucha Browne

    There is so much power in knowing our history and seeing others, who have come before you, unlock new pathways. In her recent speech at the unveiling of Former President Barack Obama and Former First Lady Michelle Obama's White House portraits, Michelle Obama eloquently discussed why moments like that are important for anyone who may be doubting themselves. She discusses how her own story has shaped by her experience as a Black woman, and how sharing her story can help others to see themselves in a place where they can be successful. This week's guest Anucha Browne's dynamic story has shaped her in many powerful ways while providing the fortitude and resolve to find ways to shift power.
    In this episode, Anucha Browne joins me for a very honest conversation about her journey as an executive with deep cross-sector experience and a legacy in women's college sports. She talks about her current role as Chief Impact Officer at Tides, where she is responsible for leading the execution and implementation of Tides' strategic initiatives. She talks about the organization's recent focus on shifting and strengthening the power of BIPOC leaders, organizations, and communities. Browne credits the passage of Title IX for giving her the opportunity to play basketball at Northwestern University, which served as a catalyst to gaining valuable leadership skills that she continues to leverage in her efforts to shift power.
    I invite you to join our conversation as we discuss:

    Unlocking Your Inner Muse with LaNora Williams-Clark

    Unlocking Your Inner Muse with LaNora Williams-Clark

    For members of historically marginalized communities, there often is an incredible amount of pressure on those who are identified as possessing a lot of potential. They've done all of the right things, worked hard in school, earned multiple degrees and fulfilled a dream by securing a prestigious job perhaps as a doctor, lawyer or engineer. Yet, whose dream are they fulfilling? Knowing that so few of their peers would have an opportunity like this, do they stay in that job because of the sense of guilt they feel? In this episode, I had a riveting conversation with LaNora Williams-Clark, a creative entrepreneur who became a lawyer because a teacher planted the seed during her youth. While thriving at her law firm, she wasn't happy and it literally took a cataclysmic event to convince her to walk away and seek clarity about her true passion which led her to unlocking her inner muse.
     
    Under the guidance of her late mentor and Constitutional Law professor, “The Father of Critical Race Theory” Derrick Bell, LaNora left the practice of law to start Muse Creative Arts Agency LLC where she supports the efforts of various writers and creators using film and theatre to tell important stories. She also has her own production company, MCa2 Productions, where she published her first book “Becoming The Muse” and is currently working on a children’s book series for adults based on the animated character “Lioness Muse.”

Speaks to my soul

I’m a Korean-American man and I feel so incredibly seen and understood listening to Angela and her guests share their experiences and stories. So much to learn and so grateful to have podcasts like this that provide wisdom and not rigid steps that only a few can imitate.

K3ndallis ,

Inspirational

I love Angela’s insight and approach to the material. She has great guest and brings and amazing energy.

Boise Kaybee ,

Wonderful and eye-opening

I really enjoy Angela’s approach and the perspective that she and her guests offer. I appreciate being able to look at The Club from a different point of view and it’s caused me to rethink my beliefs in a few different areas. This podcast can be beneficial to individuals whether they’re just starting their careers or have been in the corporate world for decades. I just wish I would’ve had resources like this when I was just starting out.
