Ultimately, Bre encourages listeners to seek their own definitions of freedom and to take actionable steps toward achieving it, even if it means confronting difficult truths and letting go of toxic relationships.

    Free Yourself Black Woman by Divesting From Capitalism w/ Yolanda Williams of Parenting Decolonized

    In this episode I'm in the "studio" with my friend and guest Yolanda Williams, founder of Parenting Decolonized. We get real about a range of topics for Black women, including divesting from capitalism, redefining success, and embracing simpler, community-oriented lifestyles. Yolanda also shares her journey from California to Central Arkansas, detailing her experiences with homesteading, land ownership, and growing her own food.
    This conversation will hopefully help cement the importance of community support, trust, and redefining wealth beyond monetary terms. Black women deserve to reclaim their time, seek ease, and build sustainable, supportive communities so we highlight some practical steps to start living a more intentional life, including gardening, supporting local farmers, and practicing mutual aid.
    We both want you to live a life of abundance, rest, and joy outside the confines of traditional capitalist structures so press "play" and let's go!

    We Have Got To Stop Creating Our Lives With $5 Energy

    We Have Got To Stop Creating Our Lives With $5 Energy

    Hey, hey!
    Today is a "rewind" episode that originally aired back in 2022. As someone who strongly believes in the power of an abundant mindset (versus poverty/scarcity based beliefs) i wanted to share this gem of an episode again as a reminder that we can create the lives we want.
    Now, I guess I need to say this...obviously, we still face strong systemic oppression. So I'm not saying that we can control every outcome. What I am saying though, is that the mindset (and energy) we hold can be a powerful way for us to get into the flow of the lives we deserve.

After Grief What Next

Thank you for sharing your story. Consoling ti me to know I’m not alone. I had gone through abortion last year for similar reasons and it weighs a ton sometimes.

The comfort in your voice!

I discovered this podcast a few weeks ago and have listened to almost every episode, sometimes I listen to 2 in one day! I just find so much comfort and encouragement in your voice! I have always felt that things are just so much harder for me, and when I listen to you share how you’ve overcome so much to be where you are, and you radiate such gentleness and hope now, it makes me feel like things will lighten up for me at some point. So thank you so much Bre, you are a delight, listening to you feels like listening to an old caring friend! Would love to hear you read this on the podcast🙈🤣♥️
Xx

Best,
