I am fresh from my vacation where I spent some of that experience with my amazing coach and during that time I came to a realization that I want to share with you today.
What I’ve noticed a lot is that people ask for coaching in one area but haven’t addressed another and so the results that they expect aren’t there. To put it another way, I’ll equate it to CPR. To effectively complete CPR you must work on the ABCs (airway, breathing, chest compressions) in that order. If you don’t clear the airway first and jump right into chest compressions then you are essentially just circulating unoxygenated blood throughout the body.
In this same way, I see people trying to fix the way that they show up without first addressing the most vital part of their transformation. For example, if you want to excel in your business, you may go straight to a business or marketing coach and although these are excellent steps to take on your journey, they may not be the FIRST step that you need to take in your transformation. Listen in to learn what is.

EP. 122 Redefining GOODT ENUFF
In this week’s conversation, I’m expanding on the discussion started in last week’s episode, EP. 121 Bad Things Happen To Good Girls, around the good girl syndrome. Last week I shared that we think if we are living by the standard of the good girl, then the good girl doesn’t have problems, and so we believe having a problem is a problem, but it’s not.
EP. 121 Bad Things Happen To Good Girls
From childhood, many women are socialized to please others, at the cost of their own well-being or needs. The world is screaming: If you’re good, nothing bad will happen to you. And so we adopt the idea that good girls don’t upset people, good girls don’t put herself first, good girls don’t disappoint others.
EP. 119 Our Bodies As Property: An Interview With Dr. Zakiya Luna
In this episode, I’m joined by Dr. Zakiya Luna. Dr. Luna is an Associate Professor of Sociology, a Dean’s Distinguished Professorial Scholar, a great friend of mine, an author, and a participant in Deeply Rooted.
EP. 118 What Happens When We Increase Our STRESS Capacity?
Stress has become an unavoidable side effect of life as a high-achieving woman.My goal is not to help you become stress-free but to help you have freedom from stress.
EP. 117 Are you STRESS Aware?
Stress is everywhere; it impacts everyone and pervades all aspects of our lives. And over time it can negatively impact your health and well-being. How you manage stress is related to your thoughts about yourself, your relationship with yourself, your relationship with others, your relationship with your work, and your relationship with your epic sh*t.
EP. 116 Come Fail With Me! My Challenge To You
I know it is the eve of Valentine’s Day, but guess what? I won’t be talking about love in this episode. Instead, I want to continue the conversation around failure because I want us as black women to drop the mask, do our epic sh*t, and embrace failure along the journey.
