Today is #EqualPayDay 💸
Comment YES below, if you agree with equal pay 🖤
Poem from Video:
I get 78 cents to a man’s dollar, while Black and Latina women get even smaller.
What should every girl know?
You are not some puppet in a puppet show.
Expose the double standards, the hypocrisy, the hate.
It is never too late.
This is the moment of girls taking the reigns.

Take a look in the mirror and see yourself a little clearer.
What type of women do you show up for?
Hold yourself accountable.
Show up for the sisters that you might not know or understand.
Show up for the sisters who you might not like at all.
Show up for all of us.
Because unity begins with YOU and who you choose to stand up for.
“I want every little girl to know that she can run for office. So when I meet girls on the campaign trail, I say, ‘My name is Elizabeth. And I’m running for president because that’s what girls do.’ And we pinky promise that they’ll remember.” - @elizabethwarren

“I didn’t get purpose and potential from getting married, becoming a mom or any other milestone or life event. I was born with it. I’ve had purpose and potential since the moment God dreamed up the idea of me. And so have you.”
- Take Heart Sermon (Link in bio)
By far my favorite preaching moment from yesterday. Because as I looked around the crowd I could see faces nodding, I could hear people cheering and I thought THIS. This is why I do this. All the hours of prep, the second guessing and struggle that happens before preaching. All the reading, note taking and scribbling out. It’s all worth it to see breakthrough on people’s faces. To hear story after story from people about how they realized their potential, feel inspired and are ready to run their race.
It’s a privilege to be able to speak into our community. @realitysf I love you and I’m excited to be running with you 💜

FWRM was visited yesterday afternoon by women's rights advocates Dame Carol Kidu from Papua New Guinea, Afu Billy from the Solomon Islands and representatives from Fiji Media Watch and IDEA International.
The women met with Executive Director, Nalini Singh and Fiji Women's Forum Coordinator, Losana Tuiraviravi and discussed issues surrounding women's representation and participation in leadership spaces in the country. Dame Carol and Afu Billy are known activists of women in politics in their own communities.
Shannon enjoyed sharing her expertise on increasing the participation of women in politics at Grand Rapids’ YWCA last night. Thank you for having us, Progressive Women’s Alliance!
Last night felt like magic. Our team attended “Real Talk,” the first event of its kind hosted by Betsy & Iya at their NW Portland studio. Betsy, badass founder of @betsyandiya, moderated an intimate panel with three inspiring women: Nesrin Danan, Alivia Fields, and Candace Molatore, and each shared their stories of navigating the creative scene in Portland (and beyond).⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The experience felt extra special because Betsy & Iya is a brand that we’ve loved and believed in since the beginnings in 2008, and this event is just one way they use their physical space to lift others up. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Their new production studio invited us in with open arms, and instantly we were surrounded by their world: their consciously created workspace, their thoughtful team goals, and this incredible community.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Some of our favorite moments:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“I kind of pivoted, and was like ‘if you don’t pay me the respect I deserve I will take my business elsewhere’” @blackprints⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“Everything makes sense now and everything was clicking just because I wasn’t scared to put myself out there.” @aliviafields⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“If you stay true to who you are, and the values that you have, you somehow will rise.” @betsy_cross⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
"It was just a message that needed to be out there, and there could be other young girls out there who need to hear it, and I did it, and it was great." @hey.candace⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Thanks @betsy_cross and @betsyandiya for sharing your space, opening up our eyes, and using this community for good. We are big fans.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🤘 Today’s Vibe ⚡️
My parents divorce left me with 0 money to go away to college .... that’s alright. I went locally anyway. .
Got pregnant at 20. That’s alright, I’ll make sure this baby never knows her parents were massively unprepared. .
Recession hit the year I got married... that’s alright, I don’t need much anyway. .
Rejected a bajillion times from nursing school.... that’s alright, I’ll make my own thing. Create my own income. .
Rebuilding my new life on my own .... no worries. I’ve got this 🙌
All my past experiences have lead me up to the point that I’m at now. I’m so glad for the struggles and the hard-knocks. They make the sweet parts that much sweeter and they help build a quiet confidence of resiliency I wouldn’t trade for anything.
Let me know if you agree 😘

One of the reasons I work SO much with my clients on getting REALLY good at their discernment is not for a “woo” reason (though I have no problem with the woo). No, the reason discernment is one of the PILLARS of the work I do with my clients is that being able to sharply discern what is GOOD discomfort and what is “stop and reassess” pain, WILL determine your long term success.
Discomfort is vital for growth. While pain, not necessarily so.
Too many people push away growth because they get uncomfortable and mistake that discomfort for pain.
Trying to get to your next level of life, career or business WITHOUT developing your discernment is like trying to win a race with zero gas in your tank.
Doing the work to expand your capacity in this way is directly connected to your ability to create the next level revenue and impact you are wanting.
