1. What EXACTLY Is Money?

    One of the biggest lessons I have learned is this: money is energy, not effort. This realization was HUGE for me. I always thought if I worked hard, I would make more. So as a professor, I took on mentoring students, being on multiple committees, and teaching summer classes under the auspices of “proving” my worth to “the powers that be.” I sincerely believed that if my deans and peers saw…Read More

  2. Ready to Trade Hustling for Trusting, So You Can Manifest?

    I remember the first time I learned to trade my hustle for my trust in God. It was when I was in the process of buying my first “big-money” home. I had already choked once when I found one for just around $600k. #realtalk: I was so used to “hustlin” … “makin’ it happen” … that I truly COULD NOT just let it be easy. So I let my fear stop me. See, I had been conditioned to work HAR…Read More

  3. Are You Manipulating Manifesting?

    Most people get it wrong when it comes to manifesting. Manifesting is not about affirmation or intention. It’s not prayer or visioning. And it’s not Law of Attraction. All of the above listed modalities are amazing and work really well, yes. I know. I use them every day. But manifesting, at least the way it has shown up in my life, is not rooted in the “positive.” No. Not at all. Manifesti…Read More

  4. It’s Time to Go Back to School—for a Different Kind of Education!

    #Realtalk: It’s time to get into the 21st century by upgrading your most valuable asset—YOU!!! It’s time for you to go back to school— a different kind of school. The kind that offers a different kind of education! It’s a new day! Globalization, the new economy, and the Internet have changed the face of education, along with the value we assign to it. The traditional education model for …Read More

  5. Want Success? Break Some Rules!

    Last week, we brought creativity back to your business! We covered how “doing it ‘right’” in order to be successful can actually hold you back, and how infusing your business with creativity can make ALL the difference. (You can read that post here.)   This week, let’s take a deeper look at that “core failure” wound we’ve been talking about … because sis, it’s DEEP!!! It’s H…Read More

  6. Counteracting Failure with Creativity

    Last week, we talked about failure. Specifically, about how failure is NOT an indication of your worth, but actually, a crucial part of the path to your seven-figure destiny. (You can read it here.) What we didn’t talk about was HOW we learn that we are failures—where that wound comes from. It’s a fair question. I think about my clients—smart, passionate, committed, beloved Type A personal…Read More

  7. REAL Independence Requires Financial Freedom

    We ALL want our independence. Right? But REAL independence requires financial freedom. So how the hell do we get there? To that place of true independence and freedom? Here’s my advice: You let go and let God. Money is a heart condition. You’ve GOT to let go of the control. When you have faith that God has your back—that God has a PLAN for you—you can trust the process, no matter what you…Read More

  8. No Relationship with God/NO $$$$

    As part of my tribe, you may have recently heard me talk about dissolving the distance between you and Spirit, to become a Black Woman Millionaire™. But what does that really mean, exactly?? It means you ARE God. God is you. #stickwithme If you really start to embody that you truly are God—then all that’s left is dissolving the distance between you and Spirit. It’s About Letting Spirit Mov…Read More

  9. Celebrating Independence

    I love July! July represents independence. #Freedom!! Officially, we know July 4 commemorates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on the same day in 1776, when the United States officially became its own nation. #holla #lovemycountry And we celebrate! We party, right?? Of course, we are grateful to those who have defended our country to KEEP us FREE. We get together with family, friend…Read More

  10. For My Dad

    Last weekend was Father’s Day. For me, there’s only one small problem: I don't know who my dad is. I don’t know what he looks like. Here’s a stock photo I found. In my imaginings, I think he might look a bit like a poet— lean and tall, with deep, intelligent eyes, and high cheekbones (what we on the streets would term a “pretty mf”—with swag for days!). Here’s what I DO know: He …Read More
