This episode is for you if:
You're considering becoming an influencer but afraid of crazy criticism
You want to know how Jalen renews his faith and stays grounded
You find yourself wanting to delete your social media every other week

In true FOC fashion we had a transparent conversation with the CEO herself, SashaGai, Body Positivity Content Creator & Owner of Flaws of Couture. To know Sasha is to feel empowered by her even if the only time you see her is the 30-second clips of motivation she often posts on social media. Her confidence is something that doesn’t go unnoticed, so we talked about it.
You’ll want to tune in if you:
Have been wondering how to deepen your self love game
Are having trouble dealing with the critics without credentials as you grow
Are curious about alignment and how to know when you’ve found your purpose

In this episode, we sat down with the B.O.S.S, Business Operations System Specialist more affectionately known as Auntee Rik. Rik shared her wealth of knowledge in business spanning over 3 decades, in the arena of systems, automation and workflows. Her mission is simple: create the processes you need to give you a sense of control, prepare for scaling and avoid burnout. As business owners and freelancers we can feel pressured to take every opportunity out of fear of missing the next best thing. That energy of confusion zaps you of the energy you need to show up and robs you of success because you can't handle the increase of business. Check this episode out here if your passion project or business is slowly starting to become a burden.

In this candid chat, we sat down with accomplished Business & Marketing Coach, Arielle Hale. Ari is what I like to call a shit-disturber who steadily avoids the status quo while challenging her clients to live life and do business on their own terms. Marching to the beat of her own drums, she's built an empire that not only gets things done but allows her to flourish as a single mom of one.
Together we breakdown:
How surviving an abusive relationship was the catalytic moment that allowed her to reclaim her power
Why financial freedom doesn't necessarily mean lifestyle freedom to do the things you love
The importance of self-awareness & mindfulness on any journey
