In this episode, we’re catching up with two of my former clients from a year and a half – two years ago, Ruth and Marcia.

I’ve brought you several conversations on this podcast with high-achieving women while they’re in the coaching container so we know what happens then, but I wanted to talk about the transformation, and how it keeps paying off even after you’ve left the coaching container.

So listen in as we talk about everything black women, one-on-one coaching, and why investing in ourselves as black women are so important.

And listen, if you’re a high-achieving woman ready to cultivate more meaningful and fulfilling relationships with yourself and others, and you take your business and professional growth to the next level, my coaching program is perfect for you. You don’t have to continue putting others first and neglecting your own needs and desires in the process, because remember, you are your greatest asset. Let’s work together to create a life that you enjoy.. If this interests you, reach out to book a Breakthrough Call at
