Have you ever wondered the best way to set your day up for success?

One of our community members asked me this question a couple of months ago, and in today’s episode, I’m sharing with you the exact steps I take to set my day up for success.

Before we talk about my actual morning routine, however, we need to talk about how it's our spiritual connection to a Power Greater than ourselves that actually sets us up for success.

The Model Minority

The "Model Minority Myth", a phrase I learned from Ijeoma Oluo, is a tool the supremacy uses to keep BIPOC folx hating on one another. Our achievements are weaponized against one another and this becomes yet another one of the burdens we carry. We must break free from this toxic pattern and break out of this myth.

The reason I'm talking about this today is because as a leader, it's imperative for you to know about the workings of the…

Today we're exploring how the bastardization of the feminine (check out previous episode, S2E5: The Fierce Feminine) lead to women being the ones carrying the heaviest burdens.

The burdens us women carry are heavy and the burdens we carry are many.

It's important to note that the burdens we carry aren't ours alone

We carry the burdens and the pain of the men that we love, our children, our families, and even our ancestors. And we ca…

Technically, this is Part 3 of the You're Powerful AF mini-series, but she's so fierce she needed her own name!

Do you ever have those days where you neglect and ignore your own needs, you don't follow your hunches, so you feel irritable and the whole day ends up being a hot mess?

Yeah, I've had those days, too...

And typically, they're the days that I haven't listened to the power and the wisdom contained within myself, my body, and …

You're Powerful AF Part2

Fierce Authenticity Podcast Cover

As women, we're taught to shut down everything that makes us powerful--which is everything that makes us human and woman. 

In this episode we start to explore what some of that power is and how you can get it back.

You're Powerful AF Part1

Fierce Authenticity Podcast Cover

Did you know that you are powerful af?

I mean, really, truly, you are powerful.

So why is it that sometimes you don't feel that way?
Why is it that imposter syndrome can creep up on you, planting seeds of doubt, leading you to question the choices you make and therefore how powerful you are?

 Because,  living under the colonial, capitalist, white supremacist, contemptuous patriarchy, we're taught to shut down everything that makes us powerful — which is everything that makes us human and woman.

The Power Within You with Krishna Avalon

Fierce Authenticity Podcast Cover

What if you knew that you didn't have to show up armored up and ready to defend yourself all the time? What if you understood that you can be strong and gentle at the same time? And what if it were possible for you to find fierceness in your gentleness?

These are just some of the topics our first guest of Season 2, Krishna Avalon, and I dig into in this episode.

We also talk about being a Brown girl in an  all white family, in an all white town, in an all white state, and how that impacted Kri…

Celebrating 2020

Fierce Authenticity Podcast Cover



Today is the last day of what seems like the longest year of our lives, 2020. And though when the clock turns midnight on Jan 1, 2021 isn't going to magically change everything that's wrong, we can still take time to digest the year we've had.

2020 got a bad rap, and yet when we take the time to reflect, we can see the many gifts this year brought us:

-Illuminating outdated systems and structures that needed to crumble
-Illuminating racial and social inequities from 400+ years ago that still …
