The Fairy LocMothers

The Fairy LocMothers

For those who don't know, I've spent the last year co-founding a nonprofit,, with my cousin Brooke.

One of the cool ways Brooke and I get to collaborate is through our monthly Founders Podcast (available exclusively for our Patreon subscribers). In the spirit of Halloween, and as a throwback to Brooke’s first cameo on Talk That Danni Gee (remember that?!), I’m excited to share our October BEM Founder’s Episode!!

I present to you… The Fairy LocMothers

2020 has been scary enough, so this year for Halloween, we’ve decided to be Fairy LocMothers - natural hair advocates, available to help people transition into loc’d life.  Here’s to celebrating origin stories and alter-egos! Brooke and I reconnected to our roots, and both shared our natural hair origin stories. When I speak with educators, it is clear that authentic representation and being presented with affirming, diverse images, and seeing themselves as owners of knowledge, are critical for students as they develop self esteem and self worth.

“Nobody is expected to match the expectation that is put on Black women.”

- @MomentsWithMiranda

Moments with Miranda Podcast

“Where is it safe for me to just... be?” In the Rose Garden.

I’m kicking off Season 3 with my Soul Sister & hostess of the Moments with Miranda podcast. Known for having Controversial Conversations, Miranda gives us an exclusive interview on the origin story of her episode “The Disclaimer”. White tears (and a workplace performance) and apathetic barriers led Miranda to reach the capacity of allowing things to slide for the sake of keeping the peace… when she’s the only one that ain’t got no peace.

Tune in. Let’s talk about Black women finding their voices, sharing their stories, and living in their true power.

We Spoke Too Soon

How can you lead your flock to hear the call of God on their lives, when you done only lived according to the call of man your whole life? - Heezy

"I'm just tellin July in advance... don't come in here actin crazy."

- Heezy

A Ram and A Crab Walked Into the Rose Garden. Part 2: God Is So Much More.

My favorite Millennial Preacher Cancer Queen Heezy is back! As we enter July of 2020, we are reflecting on what has changed since last year. We couldn't have predicted the dark moments we've experienced collectively this year, and circumstances have forced people to search for light. Today, we are talking about Experiences with God.

- Jesus was a Black man, who was lynched by an oppressive government.

- Ancestral connections to Black Gods

- What is evil?

What is doing a disservice to your experience on this earth?

How can you use your light, your joy, your jokes and your guidance in service to others? Will people wear their masks and follow CDC guidelines? Are the aliens coming? We don't know! But, today, we are righteously and ratchetly sowing seeds of faith, hope and love until we meet in the Rose Garden again!

P.S... Heezy has a birthday message for yall... if you see her in these streets... wear a mask AND socially distance yourself. #DoBoth #GetUpOffMe in the grocery store!

Insecure Friendships

Insecure Friendships

Season 4 of Insecure gave us all the feels! Today, my friend the Anti-Bride (and mental health professional) Erinn is back, and we are processing and pontificating on insecure friendships.
Was Molly wrong?
Was Issa consistent?
Of course... the reason that we can talk about this topic with so much emotion is because we've both gone through adult friendship breakups. Today, we are talking:
Day 1 friendships (and the evolution)
Women Friendship Circles (The drama and the trauma)
Grown woman boundaries (taking the keys to your vagina back)
Who gets custody during a friendship breakup?

Unapologetically, On Purpose

Unapologetically, On Purpose

When you project your insecurities on other women... that ain't cute sis. - Tanya J. Miller, Talking with Tanya

Oh, we talkin in the Rose Garden today! In this episode, I am joined by author (Things My Mama Said, Mind Matters), speaker, coach, and strategist Tanya J. Miller of Tanya J. Miller, LLC  and Talking with Tanya (she even has a mixed tape! Come on, rapper!). We are discussing the stigma of mental health (among women and men), needing more than prayer (you might need therapy), and how to move through feeling stuck (you may even stumble upon your calling!).

  • What does it mean to feel your feelings?
  • How can I build an (external) support system?
  • Why do I keep holding on to this label/trauma? Why won't I let this go?
  • What are you pouring your energy into?
  • When was the last time you wrote a letter to yourself?
  • How can my journey through darkness help others?

The power of choices, the impact of decision making, and the process of speaking purpose over yourself. You are who you're supposed to be. Stop running from you. WALK IN YOUR PURPOSE AND POWER, BOO!

Life and leadership, unapologetically and on purpose, and activating your power. Let's talk!

(#Shoutout to collaboration, connection, community between Black women. #WOCPodcasters!).

It is said that pressure can do two things: bust pipes or make diamonds. On today's episode, my guest (and husband!)

The P Word... Perfection

The P Word... Perfection

LIL Leadership Talk - Leveraging Your Light to Live Your Best Life.

It's June! Graduation Season! And I'm not just talking about caps and gowns, I'm talking about Kanye West! It's Ye Season. And while many of us might be rappin "Good Life" or "Stronger" as we get ready for Summertime, I can't help but hear Good Morning playing over and over in my head...

"Good morning, look at the valedictorian, scared of the future while I hope in the Delorean, scared to face the world, complacent career student... some people graduate, but be still stupid." 

I realized that while I'm not a complacent career student... or stupid... I have been conditioned. I’ve been condition to seek perfection, always, at all times, with all things.

Except perfection is not real. Perfection is not a destination on the map. Perfection is not the goal. I can't let my dreams of perfection keep me from living my best life. And you shouldn't either.

For anyone who has dreams of manifesting their gifts and leveraging their light, but they are stuck in the process, this episode is for you. 

For anyone that knows college grads, high school grads, or anyone that needs to be encouraged to stay committed to following their dreams until they become a reality, this episode is for you.

F-ck perfection. It's not real anyway. Let's talk about it.
