Skincare Entrepreneur - Angela McTair - TLP15
Thanks Angela for sharing your story! Angela is owner of Harlem Zen Med Spa, headquartered in Atlanta, GA. This entrepreneur, esthetician, wife, and mom, is passionate about making healthy skin care options available to underserved communities. It was a great conversation about her journey, starting with the dreams of a kid to landing in the corporate world, going all-in on business school, and navigating entrepreneurial waters. What I loved most was hearing about the lifelong friends who are contributing to her vision. For sure, Angela's journey is unique hers. As she told me, you don’t “just have to take one path....many paths converge to get you where you are supposed to be.” You’ll love hearing her journey.

President, Meeting God in Baseball - Arturo Betancourt - TLP12
In today's interview with Arturo Betancourt, we discuss his heart for reaching people in practical and tangible ways. Arturo is an author, filmmaker, and president of Meeting God in Baseball. His latest project explores his passion providing baseball prospects in the Dominican Republic to a caring community through the recruiting process, a message of love and hope, and skills to be able to enter society after their baseball career is over. I met Arturo 17 years ago on a trip to Dominican Republic that radically changed my perception of discrimination, reminded me of the common aspirations shared around the world, and helped me realize the responsibility I had to open my heart to forgive others and take control of my life. I hope this conversation helps bring you a little closer to the world along your journey..

Military Officer and PhD - Ted Earp - TLP5
I knew that my conversation with Ted Earp, a military officer from rural midwest USA, now living in France, would be a great way to relieve my anxiety and to start to help people understand me and my perspective. Ted grew up 150km (90 miles) from me, we are the same age. Other than our different races and the single parent home I grew up in later in life, we had very similar circumstances. When we met 3 years ago when he trespassed on my property at our apartment complex (I forgive you, Ted), I knew there was something familiar about him. Today, living in Europe, we can look back at our experiences with education, race, and culture to see how our perspectives have changed. I hope you enjoy this podcast. And I hope every conversation helps to improve your understanding and encourages you along your journey.

CONTENT CREATOR and LIFE COACH - Roshini Cope: TLP10
In a recent interview with Roshini Cope, Creator and Coach at Glamazini.com, she reminded me of a quote: "You need to be yourself, because if you’re not how are the people who need to hear you, going to find you?" Roshini took me through her story of making choices that everyone around her told her were safe, only to spend her life "trying to back out" of those decisions, and begin to take agency over herself. Embracing her authenticity helped her create a dynamic career as a content creator and life coach, and to appreciate her natural beauty. Most of all, it gave her grounding to embrace her "hardest and best work" in raising a son with spina bifida.Whether personal or professional, embracing your authenticity brings connection to those who need you, and freedom to live according to your passions.
