S3:Ep 16

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.

S3:Ep 6
In this episode, we discuss the Black Woman’s Achilles’ Heel…..  Asking For Help.  

I wanted to talk about the fear of asking for help, how to ask for help, and tips to set yourself up for success.
