Real Talk About Sabbaticals
Let Complexity Aid Your Mindset
I'm BEYOND excited about Autumn. It's my birthday season (holla), it's time to remember the ancestors, it's the dark time of year when shadow work is the place to be.
I wanted to dig deeper into difficult and intimate conversations this Fall - so my team launched Joy + Impact Conversations in our private Facebook group.
Diversity and Inclusion Q&A: Hiring
We must resource ourselves so we can lean into mindsets that actually work. The truth is that complexity and nuance reign supreme. We're close to extinguishing ourselves as a species - AND it's the safest time in human history. Black folk are being killed at a disproportionate rate in America - AND black women are the most educated demographic in the country. The "and" means you can always find reasons to believe that miracles are possible, that our species can thrive.
4 Practices for Building Soulful, Successful Businesses and Organizations
One of my bodies of work is supporting environmentally-focused businesses and organizations to build high performance teams through diversity and inclusion. My clients tend to have similar struggles related to internal systems and culture.
For the next two weeks, I’ll be presenting webinars through Facebook Live with my colleague LaKita Williams of CoCreate Work to answer your questions about company culture, diversity, and inclusion.
The Secret to Resiliency: Healthy Stress
Historically, trying to be the open, vulnerable version of myself while also making money and serving the folks I care about compromised my physical, mental and emotional health. However, adding motherhood to my “wife/CEO” identity meant I needed to figure out how to be healthy AND financially resourced - and I needed to figure it out quickly.
To The Women Who Feel the “Triple Bottom Line” as a Heartbeat
I had the privilege of delivering a keynote and facilitating a pre-conference field day on "Women in Regenerative Agriculture“ at Eco Farm. One principle of regenerative agriculture is "a little stress builds resiliency." Stress your plants a bit (but not too much) against the elements and they build the ability to thrive in change.
Build Community and Influence Change
To the women who wake up in the middle of the night scheming on ways to balance people, planet and profit. Who run successful businesses and love the ambitious angel on their shoulder, whispering ways to serve their people with more depth and lasting results. Who want their spirits, hearts and bodies to be as rich and satiated as their minds.
Mama Wisdom: 3 Steps Forward, 2 Steps Back Is 1 Step Forward
Orienting toward grace, power and sovereignty not only transforms systems in a lasting way, it ensures that we cultivate inner peace in the process. What would it look like for those of us who serve and lead to meet our families, friends and lives with joy, in the midst of chaos?
The lesson: How much kinder would I have been with my body and heart if I’d been able to hold this wisdom in my social change work?
