The beat way to get new business ideas and fully recharge your batteries? Of course it is travelling!!! 😏 So, guys... What shall I do in Madrid? 😉 TELL ME what do you think we just cannot miss while on holidays here?! 🙌✨
"I don't give a shit what anyone thinks."
How many of you have heard this? How many of you have said it? You totally care.
Like, you're neurobiologically hardwired to care what people think. You have not hacked that. We care what people think. The deal is that you have to be very specific about people whose opinions of you matter. It's not that you don't give a shit what anyone thinks. Just don't give a shit what some people think.
- Brené Brown, The Call to Courage.
I’m trying to lean into being more vulnerable/courageous. More public speaking— it was one of my goals this year and I’ve had so many opportunities this year that have really helped me find my voice and what I stand for. I actually like speaking to a crowd and prefer presenting to strangers; it’s like a blank slate. On the flip side, I get nervous when it’s in front of people that know me well. I couldn’t put my finger on what it was about the people close to me making me more nervous... until watching Brené Brown talk about it. I actually really give a shit what they think. And maybe that’s why I didn’t tell my friends and family about my business for over a year lol. Can any creatives relate?!
Above: my last speaking event with @theaceclass_ on a panel about personal brand, attended by my supportive (and matchy 👯♀️) bestie @roobydee. Tonight: my next speaking event where I’m doing a full presentation for StartupTO about “Developing your Content Marketing Strategy like a Pro” at @eurekahubto. All this to say that, it’s hard for me to invite people to come watch me speak... but I’ll still put a link in my stories if you can make it tonight (lol late post intentional; no action necessary)

Keep spreading positivity, dropping your knowledge, sharing your tips and telling your story. Keep sharing your truth. It’s helping someone.

Arrived in CHICAGO and the trip went smooth sailing with the kids! 😁 On the plane I listened to the audiobook The Secret, DANG I feel like that book was written for me!✨🙌🏼 I’ve been a dreamer my whole life. We didn’t have extra money growing up, so when I wanted something I went and got it. Got a job and made it happen. I think I had a paper route when I was like 11! I’ve always known I would do and be something great no matter where I came from, never knew I was self-manifesting a future for myself.💪🏼 Our minds are powerful when they are working with us, not against us! Ok... that’s all, night! #thesecret#manifest
I SEE YOU 👀
Not in a creepy, stalking way of course but I know YOU.
You want to start something new but you are scared. Because you don’t want to be seen starting at the bottom.
You want to do more but you are scared. Because ‘more’ is risky and you worry what people will think of you if you fail.
I know the feeling. I recognize it in others and I want you to know EVERYONE feels it. Not just you and I - EVERYONE (including the ones who pretend to be above the rest).
The bummer is most people live their lives making choices that reflect their fears, not their hopes.
Don’t be most people.
Start that business. Do more in your business. I promise YOU WILL GROW.
You will feel incredibly proud of the person you become, and you will be SO much further ahead than where you are now.
And if it helps, I’ve got your back. 👀
I am one DM away!

I met this amazingingly talented sculptor yesterday who does fantastic sculptures and I was particularly tripped because it was a "She"(Phoebe).So I promised I was going to set her up with a worthy mentor who will help her reach the world.this piece of art is one(or two) of the many works done by her.
@philipagbese You were the one singular person that came to mind seeing this girl yesterday and I would love to entrust her in your capable mentoring hands however there's an adage in Africa "it takes a village to raise a child" I know what a clan of highly motivated people are capable of doing so today I do hope that this piece speaks volumes to you, you and you. .
@sheleadsafrica for all you do to support African women.
You are appreciated *
