• Is It Time To Pause The Podcast? Perhaps! Don't Be Afraid To REST/RESTORE Or Create White Space!

    Happy Monday!

    In today's episode I'm getting a little personal and sharing a small slice of my thoughts on the future of BGSC Podcast. After listening today I'd love it if you took some time to think about if you are intentionally releasing and making space in your life for not only rest but also for change.

  • I Did It Y'all! Finally Releasing YT Content!

    Hey, hey! This week's episode is a little different! After saying for some time now that I'd be doing BGSC videos on Youtube, I've recorded my first real video. This process is absolutely not comfortable for me but I want to show you that it's possible to follow your purpose even when it feels scary to put yourself out there.

    In this weeks episode, which is audio from the YT video, I'm reintroducing myself, sharing my thoughts on how money does NOT motivate me as I walk in my purpose, and how there are times that even though on the outside appearances can be one thing, on the inside they can be COMPLETELY different.

  • You Aren't "Lazy," Sis So Stop Putting Yourself Down

    Black women get called so many negative things and we are always being hit with labels that are meant to make us feel bad about ourselves and/or encourage us to selflessly burn ourselves out by putting our entire beings last. If you have it in your mind that you are lazy because that's what you were told, or because you aren't doing all the things, this episode is for you.

  • Advocating For Yourself (And Your Coins) In Corporate Spaces (9-5's) W/ Cherrise Wilks

    In this episode I'm joined by Cherrise Wilks, Founder of The Fund Finders as well as Affinity Consulting Group. Cherrise is not only a distinguished business development and government consulting leader, she also advocates and mentors, often seen speaking at conferences and conducting training on critical business topics like government contracting and business sustainability. 

    In a nutshell, Cherrise is not afraid to talk about money or take the necessary steps to secure it for herself or her clients. This is why I invited her to be in conversation with me about the importance of Black women advocating for themselves in corporate and/or 9-5 spaces,

    in this episode we talk about the importance of mindset, how you must ALWAYS negotiate your salary, taking a step back to move ahead and much more.
