And that’s what we’re discussing today, her YMP journey as a journalist whose gone from CA to NC to AZ, and how she turned her pain into passion with her new web series on Youtube “Girl, We Need To Talk” In knowing Charity for the last 3 years, one thing sticks out most to me, something my grandmother always reminded me of—KEEP LIVING.

You know what’s been a very consistent theme for so many people? CoVID19 and stay at home orders has had many in reflection. It has been a time to think about life and grow to understand that very question I’ve been asking all of my guests, “Where have you been and where are you headed?” I'm here to remind you the journey is most important. When I was in high school, my favorite quote hit me like a ton of bricks. “Success is not a destination, it's a journey”. There is never a moment you 'make it'. There is never going to be a moment you say 'it is done' before death. Your journey is filled with its own twists and turns, to help define more of you! Don't miss out on all that life has to offer you because you are waiting to arrive. Your journey is the arrival. You are still here. Today’s guests has had a journey that has made her the ambitious, resilient and lover of all things marketing guru! Joseline Nyinawabera is the Lead Brand Strategist at Blk Bld & Co., a boutique marketing agency that helps black owned businesses grow and scale. What an amazing effort! What's even more amazing is her journey towards starting this agency that has helped dozens of businesses owners from every industry imagined. Joseline has been fighting to make her mark in the world since she debuted as a middle child of a family that had to voyage from Rwanda to Wisconsin. In all of the the adjustments she has had to make coming to America, she gained her strengths that make her a real world boss who knows the value of working harder than everybody else. From the top ranked business college at the University of Wisconsin- Madison, to working for top global company and landing in the desert, Joseline dives head first into her first startup company and learns major lessons that places her in the position to make the hardest decision of her life! Through Joseline’s journey, however, we can put the pieces together. We can see how every experience has prepared her for this time of her life where she has regained her stride. Like the Phoenix, she rises from the beautiful ashes and is killing it in the marketing game. Here’s the resilient journey of where Joseline has been and where she is headed…..

Ep72: You Are ENOUGH w/ Diamonde Williamson of Third + Wonder Production House
I want to open this episode with a quote, “A lot of times people think, someday my path will start. But whatever is happening in this moment is the path. You’re already on it”. This comes from Marianne Williamson and is an excerpt from Oprah’s latest book, “The Path Made Clear”. I skimmed this book and landed on this quote which I felt was very timely. Everything happening right now is “the path” and I hope you all believe that all the things happening are happening FOR you and not TO you! All of it has to happen in order to get you where you want to go. Today, we get to take a walk down the path and the life of Diamonde Williamson- Chief Video Strategist and Executive Producer at Third + Wonder Productions. Diamonde has spent her entire career exploring the ways in which she can elevate the narratives of women, specifically women of color and has done a damn good job doing so! She’s worked on some of your favorite shows, with some of your favorite companies, and has been on Youtube since 2013, with a new vibrant show exploring the lives of black women titled, “The World is Ours”. But the truth is you don’t get to celebrate big wins like working for OWN on the hit show Iyanla Fix My Life, or becoming the founder of a major startup “Blossom”, without having some mountains to conquer. And for Diamonde, one of the biggest challenges was ensuring that along the way, she was becoming the courageous woman she knew she was always destined to become. We get to talk about living life across the country, her therapy journey, the power of manifestation and having a North Star, and Diamonde’s desire to help as many people share their messages through video content, one of the fastest growing communication methods. I had to talk to Diamonde, especially during this world reset, to find out the drive behind her grind and where she see’s herself over the next decade! She has an incredible masterclass underway to continue to help others with video production and I can’t wait for it! (Yes! I invested in it and myself #supportblackwomen) Here’s the courageous journey of where Diamonde has been and where she is headed!

Ep70: The Permission to Live Abundantly w/ Janice Burch of Work Soul Flow
The world as we know it has literally flipped upside over the last week. As Im sure you are following the news, one of the things that Ive been seeing so prevalently is the sense of fear that people have. I would never tell you not to be informed, not to take precautions, but I’ll be the first realist to tell you that we attract what we believe. So I want to encourage you all to breathe, be calm, filter through the noise and take note to the facts, and let’s get through this time in confidence that we’ll actually get through and things will be ok. Today’s episode is right on time as we chat with the fearless Janice Burch. Janice owns Work Soul Flow where as a coach she help creative women solopreneurs become better at receiving abundance. More clients, more attempting, more income. What makes Janice qualified for this? Well I think when you listen to Janice’s story from being a self assured kid to a young adult attempting to the live the life that the outside world expected of her, to finally taking control of her life after having a life altering event in college and moving forward in her career. Janice takes us through her climb in corporate that helped her refine her purpose and help others dream BIGGER, landing her to full time entrepreneurship. As I mentioned, attraction in our lives is so important and I believe that Janice and I met from the simple truth! I am more than attracted to her belief in self, that nothing in her life was by mistake, and that literally anything is possible. I hope that this conversation ignites your dreams even in the midst of what is happening, that you will be confident in who you are and shed the expectations of others, and decide to give yourself permission to do what you want to do… I think I’ll start saying #BelikeJanice because Im more than inspired by how she lives her life!

Ep69: Paid the Cost to be the SELF CARE Boss w/ La'Vista Jones of ThirtyOneMarketplace & BossTalkPHX
Women’s History Month is upon us and I’m happy to share the power of super womanhood! To be a woman is to be EVERYTHING- we come in many shapes, sizes, we conquer different paths, but being a woman is being filled with evolution! Sometimes the super womanhood of being a woman comes with learning some big lessons, and today we meet La’Vista Jones- author, self care coach & systems strategist of 14 years at ThirtyOne Marketplace and the host/community builder of Boss Talk PHX! Her journey takes us from the small town of Marion, Ohio being raised with her grandmother with dreams of being a family woman…. to her jump into full time entrepreneurship after a serious episode of burnout, following her great climb to leadership in corporate as an AVP before the age of 30! Like all women, she’s a genius and I’m proud of all that La’Vista has conquered! La’Vista is doing everything in her power to make sure no one ever has to experience burnout! As we talk about her thoughts, feelings, and breakthroughs, we get to see La’Vista evolve more into her true self and understand the importance of boundaries and taking care of herself… a journey many of us will undertake. La’Vista essentially has committed her life to making sure women are putting the ‘self’ back in self-care, and I had to sit her down to get some insights on the mindsets that make us forget that key word as women and why she went DEEPER in helping us connect to the real stories of other women through her Boss TALK community.

Ep68: Becoming Port City History w/ Cedric Harrison of Support The Port
It’s the second week of Black History Month and we’re taking our conversation from romantic love to one YMPs love for his hometown- Wilmington, North Carolina- aka Port City! Meet Cedric Harrison- a father, a leader, the Founder of Support the Port Foundation, a non profit organization that aims to enhance, cultivate and provide a renewed sense of community ownership and excellence for underserved communities. This would then lead him to become a TedX speaker, the first recipient of the Z Smith Reynolds All4NC Fellowship, and so much more! I had to find out what inspired Cedric to leave it all behind to start Support the Port….. It’s storytime! Cedric takes us on the voyage from poverty to empowerment, as he takes some of the most defining moments of his youth and embarks on a journey towards fulfillment! You know, a life that he could trulyyyyy say he loved! From death threats to theatre, from college to unemployment, and from DC to Atlanta and back to Wilmington, Cedric’s story is met with many challenges where he has to make decision after decision after decision…. What ultimately would guide him began with a local tour that educated him of the POWER that was Wilmington pre 1898… and he tells us the story of the ONLY over throw of government that happened in United States history- right in Wilmington NC! This conversation is not only educational but serves as reminder that the challenges we face can shape the way we see and can impact the world! Here’s the triumphant story of where Cedric has been and where he is headed… Follow Cedric Harrison and Support the Port at Supporttheport.org Donate to Support the Port: https://secure.squarespace.com/checkout/donate?donatePageId=5876e5231b10e3abff2fda83 Shop Support the Port Merch: https://www.supporttheport.com/support Find Cedric and Support The Port on socialInstagram: www.instagram.com/supportcitycedInstagram: www.instagram.com/supporttheport Thanks to our sponsor Audible!
