The Resilience Journey: Turning Setbacks into Comebacks with Diamond Young
Have you ever faced a huge setback that you had to step back and start from scratch? I, Diamond Young, host of the BLK Directory Podcast, know that feeling too well. Kicking off our third season, bear it all – the trials, the tribulations, and the triumphs. When I lost my job at Twitter and our app crashed, I found myself in a whirlwind of uncertainty. Yet, instead of losing hope, it was a journey of reinvention, a dive into entrepreneurship, and a testament to my resilience. So, join me, as I narrate my rollercoaster journey of self-recovery and the pursuit of success in this fresh season.This season is set to be unlike any other, with guest features that are both unique and insightful. We'll navigate through the aftermath of my job loss, the crash of our app, and the road to re-establishing the mission of the BLK Directory. The importance of allowing yourself to mourn lost dreams and the courage to start back at square one while acknowledging the progress made will be delved into. The Melanated Yoga Tour and the behind-the-scenes tale of how sponsorships came into play will also feature in our conversations. So, gear up for an emotional, educational, and enlightening journey, as we traverse through highs and lows, and turn trials into triumphs, together.Thank you so much for checking out our latest episode!If you've enjoyed this podcast, then please leave us a 5-star rating & review.
