Unlocking the Places Where It Is Safe to be Ourselves
May 31 2023
Unlocking the Places Where It Is Safe to be Ourselves
People would be amazed at how often, early in my life, I felt invisible. Sure, I was sitting in the front row in class and raising my hand to answer questions and was a really good student. I was sitting in the 2nd chair in the clarinet section in the band. I was the best player on the basketball team. And yet, deep down I was aware that my friends and classmates truly didn’t see me.   I don’t recall any specific conversations where my parents told me how I had to show up, but I intrinsically knew that I didn’t want to do anything that would draw too much attention. I wanted to fit in. I did not want to be “othered”.   I got so good at it that I didn’t truly realize how adept I had become at compartmentalizing my life. Code-switching. Moving and speaking in a certain way “in public” and exhaling when I was with family and friends who “got me”.   But over the last several years, I have intentionally focused on finding the spaces in which I could be myself. There’s an ease to it. There is comfort. There is understanding. There is…joy.   In this special episode of Unlocking the Club, I revisit conversations we’ve had on the show with previous guests where they have shared those spaces and places they go to to connect with themselves. To be at ease. They reveal the people they surround themselves with in an effort to show up fully. We talk about how to find and how to create the psychological safety that will allow us to be our full selves. We unlock the spaces, sanctuaries and clubs when you can be unapologetically you!   I invite you to join the conversation as I discuss: Importance of psychological safety Creating safe spaces is essential The Four Stages of Psychological Safety by Timothy Clark Prioritize safe spaces Finding community Showing up with authenticity Healing powers of nature Empowerment Finding our sanctuaries Prioritize self-care for psychological safety.

Unlocking The Beauty and Power of Black Hair with Cherie Gatson
May 24 2023
Unlocking The Beauty and Power of Black Hair with Cherie Gatson
For as long as I can remember, I have had a really interesting relationship with my hair. Long weekend days spent getting my hair washed and pressed. Scalp greased. Ears burnt with the hot comb. My mom being thankful that I wasn't "tender headed". Me being upset that I was missing out on playing with my brothers & friends outside. My cousin cutting off a bunch of my hair and giving me a jheri curl during a family trip to Texas. My mom learning how to perm my hair as a result since there wasn't a black beauty salon in Idaho at the time. Being jealous of friends whose hair didn't "turn back" as quickly after working out when I had a relaxer. My edges thinning out after several years of wearing micro-braids. Ah, the ebbs and flows of my hair journey are monumental...not unlike other Black women.   And then, hearing India Irie's song "I Am Not My Hair" lyrics for the first time and feeling seen. Truly seen.   🎵🎵 It's time for us to redefine who we be You can shave it off like a South African beauty Or get in on lock like Bob Marley You can rock it straight like Oprah Winfrey If it's not what's on your head, it's what's underneath, and say 🎵🎵   Can we or can't we wear our natural hair? That topic comes up in conversation so often. Many of us felt like we didn't have a choice early on in our career. Corporate America just wouldn't accept us wearing our natural hair. We wouldn't fit in. Would we be considered as "worthy" of opportunities and promotions? The challenges are even more frustrating for those who don't live in communities with access to salons familiar with our hair texture and how to care for it.   In this episode, I have the pleasure of being in conversation with Cherie Gatson the Founder of HAPI Hair Studio in Eugene, Oregon. HAPI is an acronym for Hair Artists in Pursuit of Inclusion and their mission is making many of us very happy (and proud) to have beautiful black hair. Cherie talks about a traumatizing event that most likely served as the inspiration for the work she is doing to inspire, educate and empower her community.   I invite you to join our conversation as we discuss:   Wearing natural hairNatural hair care advocacyEmbracing curls in hair educationFeeling excluded due to raceKinky hair's negative associationHair care education in schoolsCan I touch your hair?Black hair education and advocacyHaircare accessibility in predominantly white marketsSwitching Careers and PrioritiesValidation in the Black communityHair porosity and moistureHair texture misconceptionsCreating a safe spaceCreating change in the communityBreaking barriers in educationPrioritizing self-careCompeting against ourselvesCelebrating Black Hair   Honorable Mention: HAPI Blog Hair Texture Charts University of Oregon Hair Project Dimensions of being a small business owner   Excited to hear more of what Cherie Gatson has to say?

Unlocking Peace, Joy and Harmony in Motherhood with Dr. LaToya Wiggins
May 17 2023
Unlocking Peace, Joy and Harmony in Motherhood with Dr. LaToya Wiggins
As I reflect on the precious time spent with my own mother and witness the incredible strength and resilience of friends and family members who are mothers, my admiration and respect for them has grown immensely over the years. And, it is increasingly evident that moms in my network spent more time focused on the well-being of everyone else besides themselves. Their children, spouses or partners, parents, and the list goes on & on.   What I now realize is that behind the veil of motherhood, there are often untold stories of the immense challenges and sacrifices that moms face, from the profound emotional rollercoaster to the struggles with guilt, self-doubt, and the pressure to be perfect, all of which remain unspoken to the outside world. One of the subjects really discussed (at least in my circle) is postpartum depression.   But let's be real, postpartum depression is crucial to discuss because it sheds light on a common but often overlooked mental health issue that affects many new mothers. In fact, conversations such as these are essential because they validate the experiences of countless mothers who may be silently suffering and experiencing shame or guilt for experiencing depression during what is commonly perceived as a joyous time in their lives.   In this episode, Dr. LaToya Wiggins and I discuss the importance of normalizing mental health therapy and self-care for women (generally) and mothers (specifically). Dr. Wiggins shares her personal journey with mental health and how nourishing herself physically, mentally, and spiritually helped her overcome it. We also talk about the need for finding a safe space and tribe of people who uplift and empower each other. Tune in for an insightful conversation on mental health and self-care for black women.   I invite you to join our conversation as we discuss: Gratitude for mothersPrioritizing Self-CareEmbracing the messinessHonest and authenticSeeking harmonyA nourished mind, body, and soulStart small for big resultsNormalizing therapy and self-careFinding your tribeThriving Honorable Mention: Faith and Family She Is a Nourished Mom Developing healthy habits Finding peace and joy   Excited to hear more of what Dr. LaToya Wiggins has to say?

Unlocking Our Joyful Purpose with Iantha Richardson
May 10 2023
Unlocking Our Joyful Purpose with Iantha Richardson
So often we find ourselves having to code switch or compartmentalize our lives for various reasons. For me, because I navigate so many spaces daily (entrepreneur, executive coach, sister, mentor, Black woman in Idaho, woman in Corporate America, etc.), I have become really effective at code switching. But, it is exhausting having to do so. I recently read the novel Trust (written by Hernan Diaz) and one of the characters in the book states that "in order to maintain your privacy, you must have a public façade" and that really resonated with me.   That statement prompted questions such as, "Am I showing up authentically?" and "Do I know who I am and am I showing up that way consistently? What impact does that have on my well-being?" So there was no one better to discuss the toll and the benefit of playing various roles than someone who does it for a living.   In this episode, my guest, Actress Iantha Richardson, and I discuss her experience as an actress in the industry (including roles on Will Trent, American Soul, and Good Trouble), how she found her purpose, the mission that acting and dance allow her to fulfill, how she honored her mother and found joy by fulfilling a commitment, and how art emulates life.   I invite you to join our conversation as we discuss: Privacy versus Public FaçadeArt saves livesBeing a diligent caretaker of selfWill TrentDirectorial debut with film J'OuvertTrinidad & Tobago CarnivalAlignment and EffortBlack TaxBeing Non-monolithicImportance of nuance in storytellingIRS Multi-lingual ServicesConnection between mothers and daughtersDon Cornelius and American SoulIsolation and the importance of being connected Honorable Mention: Teyana Taylor The Shop by Uninterrupted Mental Health Three Billboards Moonlight Streaming Platforms   Excited to hear more of what Iantha Richardson has to say?

Unlocking Our Ancestral Destiny with Dr. Artika Tyner

Unlocking Our Ancestral Destiny with Dr. Artika Tyner
I have become increasingly aware of the fact that our future is deeply influenced by the lived experiences of our ancestors. Every triumph, every struggle, every obstacle they overcame has shaped who we are today. Their courage, resilience, and determination have been passed down through generations, and it is up to us to continue their legacy. By honoring our ancestors and learning from their experiences, we can create a brighter future for ourselves and for generations to come.   In this episode, my guest Dr. Artika Tyner (a passionate educator and author) Founder of the Planting People Growing Justice Leadership Institute discusses how her connection to her foremothers serves as a reminder of the power of reclaiming our roots and our purpose. She outlines how our roots are our foundation and can provide us with the courage to pursue our dreams and goals. Ways in which we should be inspired by our ancestors, who fought for us to be where we are today. And, how we can use their stories and experiences to inform our own journey.   I invite you to join our conversation as we discuss: Being judgedRhiannaWhere we are fromMinnesota's Rondo CommunityMicroaggressions and reclamationVersatility in challenging situationsAdvice from Justice Alan PageHigher EducationMentorship and career journeysPurpose and heritageGhana Honorable Mention: The Inclusive Leader Racialized Trauma Toni Morrison 100 Black Author Challenge   Excited to hear more of what Dr. Tyner has to say?

Unlocking Being "The Only" with Nikole Collins Puri

Unlocking Being "The Only" with Nikole Collins Puri
Black people are lazy. Black people don't have anything to bring to the table. Black people don't have great ideas. These clichés are what keep systematic racism in power. If we are unable to show our greatness because no one is listening, how do we prove these stereotypes wrong? This type of thinking does not just happen in the workforce. It begins at a very young age in our education system. Per Education Weekly, "a typical U.S. student spends 8,884 hours over nine years to complete primary and lower secondary education." With that amount of time, teachers have the ability to either breath life into a child or deflate them like a balloon. If a child is the "only one" in the classroom that looks different than the others, what's the likelihood they are going to receive positive affirmations or any affirmations at all? In this episode, I am speaking with Nikole Collins Puri. Nikole is a social justice visionary, strategist, advocate and mentor who has committed her life to unleashing the potential of untapped communities. She’s the CEO of Techbridge Girls, a nonprofit organization that excites, educates and equips girls from low-income communities through STEM, empowering them to pursue STEM careers and achieve economic mobility and financial security as adults.

Unlocking Ease in Creative Productivity with Melissa Haughton
We are coming right off of the tail end of Thanksgiving. When you saw all those fixings, how did you make your plate? Did you pile everything on? Did you get those plates that have separate compartments? Did you eat all the proteins at one time and then go back for some veggies and then some carbs. How you ate your Thanksgiving meal is probably how you are going to approach what to do when a plethora of inspiration, ideas and creativity hits you. Are you going to mix it all together and nosh or are you going to be more strategic and have a plan of action? In this episode, there is nobody better to dive into this discussion than Melissa Haughton! Melissa (she/her) is a writer, marketer and digital storyteller of Jamaican descent based in Toronto. Her work often explores ideas of family, culture and community through the lens of Blackness. In 2020, Melissa created and produced So What Are You? a six-part podcast series exploring diasporic and familial relationships to cultural identity.

Unlocking Your Soul's Purpose with Nicole Ellis

Unlocking Your Soul's Purpose with Nicole Ellis
We are officially in the throws of the holiday season. Although it is customary to give tangible gifts, some of the greatest gifts do not have a price tag. The gift of time. The gift of understanding. The gift of reaching out to someone and mirroring to them how they shine. I received the latter from my dear friend, Cherie Buckner-Webb, recently in a phone call. In this episode, Nicole Ellis shares the gift of experiences and health. Nicole is a vegan food travel vlogger and consultant! As a travel vlogger, one of her goals is to cross all 50 states off of her "been to" list. With only one state to go (Alaska), she will be accomplishing that goal soon enough. However, Nicole had an even loftier goal. To give herself the gift of health. She has done that and in return, has gifted others by teaching them how to be healthier as well without sacrificing flavor.

Unlocking Parenthood with Edward Kim
In Episode #24, I got to honor my mother in a conversation with Marisa Renee Lee about grief in loss. It's only fitting with National Play with Dad Day here that I share some thoughts about my amazing father with you as well. I don't speak about my father often on this podcast but he has definitely shaped me into the woman I am today. Recently, I was asked "What is the value of a father"? THAT is a powerful question. Children's relationships with their fathers are just as important as relationships with their mother. In this episode, I am speaking with Edward Kim. Edward has a passion to make the experience of work enjoyable! He is a leadership coach, team builder, business owner but his favorite moniker is "dad" to his son, Ernie. But his transition into fatherhood has not been an easy one. As anyone who has been around newborns knows, some days can be amazing. Then, there are those other days that no one speaks about. Well, Edward is speaking about both types of days! I invite you to join our conversation as we discuss: Burnout Soft Skills Being in wellness First time parents Game of Thrones Dueling Thoughts Permission to Feel SAHD Insecurities Asking for help Support #GirlDad Honorable Mentions Unlocking the Club Merchandise National Play with Dad Day!

Unlocking Black Women and Grief with Marisa Renee Lee
For those who do not know, this podcast is a love letter to my mother, Alice Faye Taylor. When this episode drops, it will be one year and one day since my mother has passed. Being a private person, it was hard to share my grief about her passing. However, I also think it is important. Black women are told to always be strong. Generationally, we have been taught to perform even when we are experiencing profound turmoil. As I honor my mother in this conversation, I invite my friend Beverly Oden to speak with me about her experiences with grief and loss. You may recognize Beverly's voice as she has been on the podcast two other times sharing her wisdom. If you haven't had an opportunity to listen, you can find them here: Unlocking Your Authentic Voice with Beverly Oden and Unlocking Sisterhood & Entrepreneurship with Beverly Oden and Mia Jackson . I am also inviting another person who has helped me through this experience, Marisa Renee Lee. After losing her mother, a cousin and a much wanted pregnancy, Marisa was in the throws of grief. With her catastrophic loses, Marisa chose to channel her experiences into a book. In Grief is Love Marisa reveals that healing does not mean moving on after losing a loved one. Healing means learning to acknowledge and create space for your grief. Please take a moment to honor Marisa's mother, Lisa, her cousin and her baby. Take Care. Pray Every day.

Unlocking Living Life to the Fullest with Jasmine Stringer
In growing older, there are so many beautiful experiences to enjoy and explore. Vacations. Job Opportunities. Creating your own family. But something that is not discussed is how our relationships with immediate family transitions. In lieu of your mother being a parental figure, she begins to become a friend. Instead of bickering with your sibling for your parents attention, you start considering them a peer. With the passing of time, there is a dawning that these relationships should be revered as we watch our loved ones age, get sick and leave their earthly bodies. Every moment with them is precious and every day with them is treasured. In this episode, I am joined by Jasmine Stringer who knows all about seizing the day. A speaker, lifestyle expert, strategist and influencer, Jasmine's specialty is teaching people to live each and every day to the fullest especially with your loved ones around you.

Unlocking the Power Shift with Anucha Browne
Sep 21 2022
Unlocking the Power Shift with Anucha Browne
There is so much power in knowing our history and seeing others, who have come before you, unlock new pathways. In her recent speech at the unveiling of Former President Barack Obama and Former First Lady Michelle Obama's White House portraits, Michelle Obama eloquently discussed why moments like that are important for anyone who may be doubting themselves. She discusses how her own story has shaped by her experience as a Black woman, and how sharing her story can help others to see themselves in a place where they can be successful. This week's guest Anucha Browne's dynamic story has shaped her in many powerful ways while providing the fortitude and resolve to find ways to shift power. In this episode, Anucha Browne joins me for a very honest conversation about her journey as an executive with deep cross-sector experience and a legacy in women's college sports. She talks about her current role as Chief Impact Officer at Tides, where she is responsible for leading the execution and implementation of Tides' strategic initiatives. She talks about the organization's recent focus on shifting and strengthening the power of BIPOC leaders, organizations, and communities. Browne credits the passage of Title IX for giving her the opportunity to play basketball at Northwestern University, which served as a catalyst to gaining valuable leadership skills that she continues to leverage in her efforts to shift power.

Unlocking Your Inner Muse with LaNora Williams-Clark
Sep 14 2022
Unlocking Your Inner Muse with LaNora Williams-Clark
For members of historically marginalized communities, there often is an incredible amount of pressure on those who are identified as possessing a lot of potential. They've done all of the right things, worked hard in school, earned multiple degrees and fulfilled a dream by securing a prestigious job perhaps as a doctor, lawyer or engineer. Yet, whose dream are they fulfilling? Knowing that so few of their peers would have an opportunity like this, do they stay in that job because of the sense of guilt they feel? In this episode, I had a riveting conversation with LaNora Williams-Clark, a creative entrepreneur who became a lawyer because a teacher planted the seed during her youth. While thriving at her law firm, she wasn't happy and it literally took a cataclysmic event to convince her to walk away and seek clarity about her true passion which led her to unlocking her inner muse.   Under the guidance of her late mentor and Constitutional Law professor, “The Father of Critical Race Theory” Derrick Bell, LaNora left the practice of law to start Muse Creative Arts Agency LLC where she supports the efforts of various writers and creators using film and theatre to tell important stories. She also has her own production company, MCa2 Productions, where she published her first book “Becoming The Muse” and is currently working on a children’s book series for adults based on the animated character “Lioness Muse.”     I invite you to join our conversation as LaNora and I discuss:   Significant momentsSerena and Venus Williams9/11Being braveEntrepreneursSouth Central LAPlanting the seedConnectionsBlack male teachersBeing bussedBeing seenGuiltDerrick BellThe MusePolymath     Honorable Mentions The Man Behind Critical Race Theory Harlem’s Williams-Clark Winner Of Black Public Media’s PitchBLACK Competition Becoming the Muse by LaNora Williams-Clark Tanekya Word's Art Black Women of Print Dr. Bernard Demczuk Jason Fish     Excited to hear more of what LaNora Williams-Clark has to say?
