Hey guys! Welcome back to the podcast. This is a super quick message because I wanted to get it in its rawest form.  

To explain this point I will use the example of a purchase. When it comes to making a purchase, we often get really excited when we are able to get the hook up on that purchase or obtain it from a sale. Notice that in this scenario you experience a dopamine hit. This is because getting the hookup creates a feeling of pleasure and reward, which motivates you to repeat a specific behavior. Here’s the thing, repeating this specific behavior can actually keep us stuck.

So what would happen if we, as a people, normalize spending full price as much as we normalize getting the hookup the deal?

Listen in to learn how normalizing paying full price benefits us and getting the hook up keeps us stuck.

Episode 94 – The Value of Coaching Series with Karen Livingstone

As high-achieving women of color, we know what it feels like to walk into a room and be the only one who looked like you. To be asked your opinion on a project that lacks diversity and inclusion. To frequently be asked to participate in conversations where the expectation is that your opinion speaks for all voices from your community. And not be able to talk about specific topics that are important to your culture because no one around you can relate from personal experience.

Episode 93 – Ready is not a THANG!

Listen, ready is not a thang! “Being ready” is a measure of whether we think we will fail or succeed at something, that is all. We can be the most prepped and primed version of ourselves and still not feel “ready” to take that next step. This is because readiness happens in our minds.
