A Reminder To Stay In Integrity With Yourself/Your Faith So That You Aren't Attaching Your Name To Opportunities That May Not Be For You.

Something recently happened on my end that was an excellent reminder for me to do what I believe is right/stay in integrity with my morals and faith and I absolutely had to share it here on the show. I had the opportunity to work with a brand that MANY influencers partner with but Iturned it down because it didn't sit right in my spirit. It ended up being the right decision even though on the front end it seemed like I missed out on a great opportunity.

Surviving An Aneurysm Plus Knowing That God Didn't Put Me Here To Be Mediocre With Robin Robinson (BGSC Community Member)

Hey Y'all!So I'm trying something new for this episode. Several weeks ago I sat down and had a virtual conversation with someone directly from the BGSC community. I did this because just like it's important to hear from people that may be a bit more mainstream on the show it's also important to hear from women just like me and you directly from our community.Robin is sort of a "Jill of all trades." She's done a ton in her life thus far including acting, writing, painting and even standup! Currently she's hosting her podcast: A Closed Mouth Does Not Get Fed as well as writing a book that details her first hand experience with surviving an aneurysm. In this episode we talk about not only what it was like having an aneurysm but also:If there were any warning signsWhat she had to remind herself to get over being embarrassed by using a bedpanWhat she feels her purpose in life is right nowWhat keeps her moving forwardRobin also shares her thoughts on God plus gives you some encouragement that will hopefully fill your spirit.Robin's FacebookRobin's IG Our Sponsors: * Check out Factor: http://factor75.com * Check out NPR: https://www.npr.org/ * Check out Shopify: https://www.shopify.com/ Advertising Inquiries: https://redcircle.com/brands Privacy & Opt-Out: https://redcircle.com/privacy

Hey, Sistren! Press "play" and join me as I connect with the brilliant clinical dietician and author, Jessica Wilson, who wrote the transformative book, "It's Always Been Ours: Rewriting the Story of Black Women's Bodies."

In this conversation we talk about food, body image, self-perception and food respectability.
