In this episode, I follow up on the open letters I wrote on LinkedIn and I spill the tea. Yes, I did! Because it needs to be confronted and called out.
In this episode, we explore why we should raise our hands and tell our organizations that we want to be developed and groomed to become Executive Talent. Many of us are talking ourselves out of being C-Suite executives. Today, we explore why we shouldn’t do this and the things we can control on our C-Suite journey.
In this episode, I explain why verbally asking for a promotion is the fastest way of not getting promoted. Instead, I talk about how you set yourself up to earn your next promotion, all without announcing, “I Want A Promotion.”
In this episode, I discuss two points of frustration at work: 1. BS that we find ourselves unnecessarily involved in, and 2. Being treated with disrespect. I give you some things to think about and language to help you focus on your priorities and professionally defend yourself without being labeled defensive or angry black woman.
We have successfully dealt with Sexism, Racism, Classism…. So what’s a little Ageism to US?
In this episode, one of my favorite coaching clients, Mrs. Adrienne, joins me for a conversation on Ageism. In 2018, Mrs. Adrienne found herself impacted by a huge corporate restructuring. She shares her story of being a seasoned professional back in a job market that isn’t the most appreciative of older workers. You will leave this conversation inspired and limitless.
In this episode, I want to focus on the signs you need to pay attention to as you complete your internship. There are clear RED FLAGS, that will tell you that you need to run far away after your internship is over … even if you secure a full-time offer to join them after you graduate. Some Bags Just Ain’t Worth It.

In this episode, writer Vonti McRae shares how her career journey in the film industry prompted her to share her truth.
In March of 2019, published by the WomensENews website, Vonti authored an article originally titled I’m Scared Shitless of Success now titled I’m Scared of Success. Vonti’s article described the Trillest emotions held by black women in corporate America….. fear, courage, self-doubt, confidence, not belonging, resiliency and open the world to a real look at the multifaceted world of the black woman corporate warrior. Like Vonti, many of us come from very humble beginnings and we continue to work hard to achieve the highest levels of success.
When I read this article, I immediately emailed Vonti and asked her to be a guest on the show…. because I have questions.
If you are unhappy at work, this episode is for you.
In this episode, I share what lessons we as Black Women can take from the story of Jesus’s crucifixion and apply to our career management. There is a lot we can take from this story, regardless if Jesus is your home boy or not. The lesson of discomfort and pain, perceived failure, redemption, and never giving up on your purpose. In this lesson, I truly believe Jesus was crucified on the cross so that we would not have to be miserable and suffer at work. Seriously, I know you may think it sounds crazy but hear me out.
