Our episode concludes with an interview with a millennial woman who overcame a life setback to continue her climb to the top of one of the largest law firms in the world. She is also working to raise money for hurricane ravaged Dominica, the birthplace of her father. Her advice to those of us looking to be a BOSS–you have to lift others while you climb. Enjoy!
What do you think of our new logo? Designed by my college age sister studying to be a graphic designer! I had a vision and she made it real. Thanks baby sis!
First topic of discussion…Hoda Kotb is named the newest anchor of the Today Show after Matt Lauer’s firing for sexual misconduct in the workplace. Two women co-anchoring the most watched morning show. This is amazing!
Did Hoda set a plan for this. Did she visualize her ascension to the top of morning news? Maybe. Visualization is a powerful tool. If you imagine you have already achieved success or already gotten what it is you want (a new job, romantic partner, etc.), it can happen! Not simply because you visualized it, but because visualizing will make you put things in to action to get what you want.
And finally, did you get engaged this holiday? Wedding and Event Planner Myriam Michel (@mmeliteevents on instagram) has great advice for planning a wedding. She also shares the good, the bad and the ugly when it comes to entrepreneurship.
At first, her plan was to be Editor-In-Chief of Cosmo or Marie Claire magazines. But when she began feeling unfulfilled at her mainstream magazine jobs, fate connected her to Essence magazine where she has been able to cover the Obamas (several times), appear on television, and travel to tell both fun and inspiring stories. She says she loves working for a publication that advocates and fights to tell the often ignored stories about black people.
