Are You Okay, Sis?

I love being a Black woman. I wouldn’t change it for the world. But one of the things that I find so irritating moving through this world (ahem, country) as a woman of color is how fucking overqualified we have to be in order to move forward sometimes. While I am so excited to see […]

I Have a Question For You..

I have a question for you. When’s the last time you thanked yourself? It’s November (already!). Most of us tend to be more aware and intentional about showing our gratitude for the seemingly small things and the overwhelmingly BIG things. Whether you’re doing a daily gratitude challenge on social media, or choosing to be more […]

What Are You Worried About?

I was watching the first episode of Voltron with my daughter (don’t judge me) and there was one scene where Pidge was really concerned about taking on her new responsibilities as a Paladin (or pilot) of Voltron. She started spouting off all of the things that could possibly go wrong, all the way down to […]

You’re Making This Harder Than It Has To Be

I was reading one of those astrology memes the other day and mine was: “Aries….Do it your way, even if your way is stupid. Just make everything worse” Damn, astrology meme, why you have to be so accurate? I’m totally guilty of making things harder than they need to be. In fact, sometimes it feels […]

Good Things Happen When You Change Your Seat.

Have you ever REALLY wanted to do something— like go to a concert, or take a trip, or maybe something smaller like an in town event. You call up all your friends and they’re really just not that into it. They all have some reason why they can’t attend with you. In those moments, what […]

Could Things Be Worse? Probably.

I was chatting with a friend the other day who was venting to me about her relationship. Suddenly, she caught herself. “I’m sorry, girl. I shouldn’t be complaining. I mean, at least he isn’t cheating on me.” See…what we’re not going to do is get caught up in what I like to call the “At […]

Make The Decision To Get Free

Earlier this week I was scrolling through Facebook and came across a video of Lena Waithe’s acceptance speech at Black Girls Rock. I, of course, stopped to watch it and over the next 2 minutes got my entire life. She told a story of how she finally felt free enough to cut off her locs. […]

Two Ocean Metaphors & A Challenge

I’m a summer girl at heart but I’m a big fan of September because it still signals to me the start of a new year. We’re shaking off the summer laziness, kids are going back to school, business prospects are ready to get started again. And you still have 4 months left in the year […]

It’s Time for a Soul Stirring Adventure

Adventure, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder. Before I had children, my idea of adventure was always something grand, similar to my Senior Trip after high school graduation, when I went on a road trip through Yosemite, Mammoth and Lake Tahoe with some friends. I’m still astonished my parents let me go […]

You’re Destined for More..

I have a pretty common journey to entrepreneurship story: I landed my “dream job” right out of college and quickly learned that the corporate world was just not for me. I summoned all of my courage, saved my coins and made the decision to quit my job and go into business for myself. I never […]
