  • Black Women Deserve Success

    Season 2 Ep. 10 | In this week's episode, I share my experience of attending a local women's summit and what I began thinking about as result of attending.  While I did leave feeling inspired, I also realized that a few negative emotions were brought up for me that many Black women struggle with.  I discuss some of the common fear Black women have when it comes to success with our creative and business ventures, as well as share advice on how to combat that!

    The holiday season is approaching and as I discussed in the episode, I love supporting other Black creatives and their business.  That's why this year I have created a holiday gift guide so you can buy your loved ones the perfect gift.  My guide features 13 Black-owned businesses and 30 products, if you would like for me to add other brands and products, please DM the podcast Instagram or contact me via email. I have included the link to the guide as well as the two companies I couldn't include within the guide below:
