5 Podcasts every #BossBabe should give a listen

listen

I’m a big advocate of personal development which = self investment. One of the ways I invest in myself is listening to other inspiring and kick ass boss babes that have started from the bottom now they here! Women who struggled and still made it inspire me to keep pushing.

Below are my Top 5 Female Podcasts that will positively affect your life, business and even relationships! Be sure to share who you listen to that keeps you motivated.

  1. Myliek Teele of My Taught You

Myliek is the founder of CurlBOX and has transparently shared her story. She speaks openly on how she started before she was completely ready without even having enough packaging… literally sending product in basic brown boxes. She speaks on her fall with a DUI while starting her company and how she rose to being one of the best in the game right now! Her authenticity is what I love about her! One of my favorite podcasts of hers is one that was posted just recently entitled “Maintaining Momentum”. Give it a listen and be sure to follow her work.

2. Courtney Sanders of Think & Grow Chick!

Courtney’s gift is to give to other female entrepreneurs. She focus on helping business owners like myself, unlock the full potential to think & grow into our purpose. She shares openly about the unsuccessful launch of her business back in 2009 and talks candidly about the steps she took to succeed and how you can do the same thing. Click her pic below to follow her podcast. One of my favorites is entitled “Do You Boo: Defining Your Own Success vs. Learning from the Best”

3. Sophia Amoruso the original #GirlBoss 

Another fabulous and open book entrepreneur! Sophia is the founder of Nasty Gal but literally came from rags to riches by personal poor choices. She dropped out of school and found herself dumpster diving, hitchhiking and stealing prior to finding her purpose and creating Nasty Gal. She recently launched #GirlBoss Podcast late 2015 and I’m already loving her interviews and candid conversations.

4. Jess Lively of The Lively Show

This inspiring lady is all about encouraging you to live with “value-based intention.” Her podcast has over 2 million downloads and is true boss babe status! “The Lively Show is designed to uplift, inspire, and help you add a little extra intention to your everyday.” From topics of wellness to career and business, Jess Lively covers it all. One of my favorite interviews is with Nicole Balch that gives business advice. Be sure to check out more by clicking her photo below.

5. Koereyelle of The Single Wives Club

Koereyelle “Confessions of a Werkaholic” podcast series interviews various boss babes around the US sharing their learnings. Not only is this a great addition to my podcast listening pleasures, her “Mindset Mondays” are equally informative. So this one is not really a podcast but must not go unmentioned. Koereyelle offers weekly “Mindset Mondays” conference calls and shares her personal advice, learnings and motivation for savvy ladies everywhere. Sign up to get a part of the action here! The one I received this past Monday entitled “Pray then Prepare” was phenomenal. Don’t miss out on her great advice.

CHIC TIP: Business

cleopatra31

I know the title may have you curious, which is why I am excited to share how awakening your dormant goddess personally can help you professionally.

Cleopatra

Cleopatra… one of my favorites! A completely powerful, feminine, world known goddess and last active pharaoh of Ptolemaic Egypt. After her reign, Egypt became a province of the then-recently Roman Empire. (read more here)

She was an important part of pharaohs power. I use her as the epitome of goddess and an example of awakening your dormant goddess to help you professionally as she seduced, reigned and was well respected. She was confident in her actions… in the way she walked and she commanded attention without speaking a word.

cleopatra2

When you feel confident personally, it spills over into whatever your professional titles are. Confidence allows you to stand taller, believe in yourself and abilities while also gaining the buy in of those around you. Want to know ways to awaken this dormant goddess? Read below for tips on how to awaken your dormant goddess personally so you can rule professionally!
1. Recognize she already lives within – as a “Kings Kid”, recognizing who you belong to spiritually gives you clarity to what you’ve inherited in the natural life. Even if you don’t currently possess the confidence to do those things you desire… know for you to have the thoughts, that it already lives within… you just need to fuel and nurture her.

2. Practice as you are… not just where you wish to be – when you first recognize she already lives within, it’s easier to practice as you are. Be transparent about where you are on your journey and practice just as you are in those very moments. You will then meet who you wish to be and the two will become one.

3. Treat yourself to great tantric practices – It’s been stated an empowered, sexually awakened, divinely feminine Tantric Goddess, radiates love, life and sensual energy. She can then be more powerful than anything on this earth. “Tantra combines sexuality, sensuality and spirituality and celebrates the sacredness of sex, which through practice helps to develop a heightened awareness within the mind, body and spirit.” (read more about it… study and apply!) Statistics state sex will release stress, boost your immune system, and overall makes you feel good which then allows you to feel good in the business you do and be healthy enough to complete any tasks needed.

4. Have fun with it! – As you tap into the goddess that lives within, liberate her and have fun with your exploration. Do not be ashamed of tapping into your personal power… this will benefit you professionally because you will not take everything too seriously but understand how to utilize your power to the advantage of you and your business.

I would love to hear how you will use these tips to awaken your dormant goddess and also your experiences professionally once she’s awoken.

God is Love

Preparation is key

I was watching a speech Denzel Washington gave a group of young actors and was completely moved. He said “Between goals and achievement is discipline and consistency.” WOW! This is so true. Any successful boss babe, mogul or entrepreneur will share they did not receive achievement without consistency and discipline. It plays a vital part in your success or lack thereof.

(Watch more below)

I begin thinking about how much preparation plays a part in being successful… in being disciplined and staying consistent. “If we fail to plan… we are planning to fail.”

Preparation

Per the previous post I question you how much are you preparing for the goals you desire? Please share! I would love to help you by being your accountability partner. Tell me… what are you preparing for? What struggles do you have with staying consistent and how are you changing that with your actions today?

Who Are You?

Who are you? A question that I’ve witnessed plague so many due to insecurities, disappointments, and unfulfilled goals/dreams. But did you know that you can speak words that hold power and can literally change your life if you are open to it?

Discover

The tongue is the most powerful tool on your body… use it to your advantage! Discover the power of starting your day saying “I Am” and fill in the blank after those words to describe who you desire to be if you are currently non there.

Examples are:

I AM STATEMENTS

 

Try it and share your experience below. Remember… You are what you say you are so give some self-love and speak greatness!

“I’sss Married NOW!”

wedding collageYes.. you read that right, I’m now Mrs. Proctor!

I’ve been MIA for the past two months and this is the reason why. I’ve been planning my butt off to get married to the man of my dreams and it’s now time to share it with all of my virtual world… And unlike most weddings, we did NOT break the bank! Hope you enjoy!

(*Please note all photos are from friends who’ve captured via cell phone… professional wedding photography will not be received until next week.)

IMG_9908

Theme: Vintage Southern Chic

Dress code: All White Attire

Time: 2pm

Location: Rose Hill Manor in Port Arthur, Tx

Menu: Back Yard BBQ

Total Spent: $2,200

rosehill

To say we didn’t run into any road blocks would be untrue. Our original location was another historic home where we planned to have a huge outdoor wedding along with outdoor dancing, bbq and yard games but due to the weather report showcasing thunderstorms and 90% chance of rain 4 days before the date, we had to quickly switch venues! God was smiling on us to have a home around the corner be available without charging an additional fee.

With that, I had to quickly change out from the original plans. I had to find a venue that would allow me to hold my wedding in doors but still allow something to go on outside under a covering. Well, Rose Hill matched all the criteria!

Below are photos of the original home: The Pompeiian Villa and although we were sadden to not be able to use this place, we are grateful for the Rose Hill Manor venue! The day must go on!!

IMG_9069

I was so happy to have Rose Hill Manor be available as the wrap around porch was 12ft deep and covered which would allow me to host my reception on the porch and not get rained on. We are happy to report that although it did rain, the rain lasted for maybe 35 minutes and was light showers versus the thunderstorms it reported to be.

IMG_9957

My nieces, Aileena and Alani offered an original blessing. Aileena which is 11yrs old read a poem that described Ronald and I’s story. Alani who is 13yrs sung “At Last” by Etta James!

IMG_9954

Here is the original poem written by me but performed by my niece:

155 days ago they met

He called hisself trying to

Seduce her into his world

But if you know my nanny…

She was NOT trying to hear that!

She shot him down every time he spoke

But he never gave up and

Three days later, her heart he took

From not wanting to be bothered

To now the ocean not being able to live without his moon

It was inevitable that this day was to come soon

God knew it was necessary for these two to meet

Now on this day

Two become one and their lives with HIM will now be complete

With love in the air and flowers at full bloom

Please stand as the bride comes to meet her groom

IMG_9952

My brother walked me down the aisle. I love this photo a friend captured as you can see my brothers eyes on me and all the guests looking at my groom to see his reaction. Completely beautiful!

And I can’t be anymore joyful about my Tadashi Shoji dress rented from Vow To Be Chic!
