Guess What You’re Making?

The end of Women’s History Month is fast approaching. And while I’ve been highlighting some women who are making history over on the Color Outside Instagram page, I want to make sure to highlight one woman that’s making history, in particular. You. I know you’re probably thinking that there’s no way you’re making history. You’re grinding, […]

Good Things Come To Those Who Do This

You’ve heard the old adage that “good things come to those who wait”. As a child, I whole heartedly believed that if I was just patient enough, I’d get whatever shiny object my heart desired. As a teen and young adult, I found the importance of patience with the RIGHT thing — love, the right career path, […]

What Makes You Amazing?

“People always tell you to be humble. When was the last time someone told you to be great. Be great. Be amazing. Don’t let anyone tell you what the f*ck you can’t do.” – Kanye West When I coach women, one of the questions I ask them pretty early on in our process is “What are you […]

How To Stop Caring What Others Think Of You

I have a friend, we’ll call her Kay. Throughout her childhood and into being a young adult, Kay had only one priority— she desperately wanted people to like her. In high school she blended in mostly; not the most popular, not the outcast. But, at the slightest sign that anyone showed her attention, she’d do […]

Playtime is not just for kids

When’s the last time you played? I’m talking full-on, delightfully silly, fun on fun on fun PLAY. For most of us, it was probably sometime when we were kids. Maybe when we were teens if we were lucky. But as much as we relegate playtime to little kid stuff, it’s actually really important for us […]

Put Fear in the Back Seat

How often do you dream about your future these days? I mean really dream. Not only the big, scary, I-may-need-to-hit-the-lottery dreams, but also the quiet ‘I wish I could do this one small thing but’ dreams. Now, how often do you talk yourself out of those very same dreams? Just today, I asked my daughter what […]

What if you lived your life like Beyonce?

Hey, Like most of you, I was completely in awe with Beyonce’s performance at Coachella this past weekend. I felt so much #BlackGirlMagic pride throughout the entire thing — her tribute to HBCUs, her shout-out to historically Black fraternities and sororities, the array of Black music she showcased, the words of Nina Simone and Malcolm […]

What We Can Learn From The Royal Wedding

I’ll be honest, I didn’t really care about the Royal Wedding prior to last Saturday. I didn’t plan on watching it — even though I was probably awake while it was happening (hello, wonky newborn sleep cycle). But then I woke up on Saturday morning and was flooded with gorgeous images and gospel singing and […]
