    What'cha Workin With?

    What'cha Workin With?

    Times are calling for a change in every industry. Let's start with your mindset, to identify the most valuable skills, gifts, and talents. As entrepreneurs, professionals and educators, we strive to impact others through knowledge sharing, support, and resources attainment. Our guest panelists are here to share tips and tools to enhance your leadership skills through the translation of "What'cha Workin With?

    Believe it or not, many of us struggle to answer this question when asked to describe our gifts, experience, and expertise. Professional paths are no longer straight and narrow. They are zig zagish and complete with adversity, tragedy, and triumph. So I ask the question again? 

    What'cha Workin With?

    Meet our Co-host: Ciltona Cawthorne- Your Encouragement Sister: Great day, I am Ciltona- Your Encouragement Sister, I’m from New York and currently live in North Carolina. I am passionate about helping women be inspired, become motivated, and stay encouraged so they can embrace their beauty, find their joy, and be successful. I am fearfully and wonderfully made and I am not in competition with other women. I support, enrich, and empower my sisters. In my poems, I am speaking to myself and other women who feel they are not enough or who may be struggling with their self-image. There was a time that I did not believe that I was gifted. And God revealed to me that He created us all for excellence and gave us all gifts.

    James Barry: CEO and founder of Castle Hill Foods, Inc. James has been in the food industry for over 17 years as a professional chef, and educator of whole food health. "I believe eating organ meats can solve most of the world's problems." James also shares inspiration for launching a business during COVID.

    Samantha Sunders, LPC: I help professional women to break free from toxic relationships heal their trauma, rediscover who they are, and live a life they desire. I believe what makes me different is my experience of dealing with an ex-husband who was a narcissist and co-parenting with one as well. I also help hundreds of women know exactly how to establish healthy and nourishing relationships after having unhealthy ones.

    I want people to know that I have programs and events that can assist with living a life they desire and establishing healthy & nourishing relationships. I have a weekly email list that provides free tips that can help with learning how to establish healthy relationships and live the life they desire.

    KUTI Mack: A fitness philosopher, specializing in helping people who are successful in every aspect of their life EXCEPT for maintaining a healthy lifestyle. "If you're serious about being better than you currently are and are willing to learn, what I do WILL work for you!"
